  1. I think you're wrong about this. I think the greenseers take on appearances when entering someone's dream without really being aware of what they look like. When Jon and Bran connect in ACoK, Bran appears to Jon as a three-eyed weirwood.
  2. No. Not from what we've been given as far as I can tell, although there's that line about Rhaegar being told that Elia would not bear anymore children after Aegon's birth. I really don't think the dots would be that hard to connect for Jon Connington. I think Septa Lemore is key here to confirm that piece of information.
  3. A short of post about Jon Connington possibly having knowledge of Jon Snow. "No man could have asked for a worthier son," Griff said, "but the lad is not of my blood, and his name is not Griff. My lords, I give you Aegon Targaryen, firstborn son of Rhaegar, Prince of Dragonstone, by Princess Elia of Dorne." (The Lost Lord, ADwD 24) It's the firstborn son that always nagged me, so I decided to waste some time and go see the mentions of firstborn son. And every character who has been mentioned as being the firstborn son had a younger brother. Marq Piper has a younger brother. Jaime Lannister has a younger brother. Aenys I Targaryen had a younger brother. Jaehaerys, Aegon II's son, had a younger brother. Robert referred to as firstborn son, has two younger brothers. Everybody knows that Rhaegar had two children. Rhaenys and Aegon. But to call Aegon Rhaegar's firstborn son when he is supposedly his only son is a really interesting turn of phrase.
  4. My go-to thread for thing I know people don't give an ish about and will not bother reading, especially when it's anything that challenges the notion that Young Griff being a Blackfyre. Two things I noticed. So the first one, I already posted about in this thread sometime ago. It's the new arrangement of visions in the chapter following Dany's visit at the House of the Undying. "A dead man in the prow of a ship, a blue rose, a banquet of blood . . . what does any of it mean, Khaleesi? A mummer's dragon, you said." (Daenerys V, ACoK 63) So this conversation new arrangement was inserted in the middle of a focused conversation about the dragon has three heads and the prince that was promised. So GRRM essentially trims all the fat and leaves us with Dany reflecting on Rhaegar's words. At first, I wasn't really sure why he would insert a different arrangement. But then I was writing an essay about the dragon having three heads and going over a few things that relate to that when I revisited this passage and I realized what GRRM did. While the identity of the dead man in the prow of the ship is a point of contention, the rest of the passage quoted above is not. The blue rose is an indirect reference to Jon Snow. The banquet of blood is an indirect reference to Robb Stark. The mummer's dragon is an indirect reference to Young Griff who has been revealed to be Aegon Targaryen. So GRRM basically referred to Jon Snow and Young Griff in a conversation about the three heads of the dragon and the prince that was promised. What does Robb Stark have to do with any of this? Well, Robb Stark is tied to Jon Snow. Robb and Jon grew up as half-brothers, but Jon's actual half-brother is Aegon. So logically speaking, the dead man at the prow of the ship should be Jon Connington. When we drop the dead man at the prow of the ship and the banquet of blood from the line quoted above, we are left with the blue rose, Jon Snow, and the mummer's dragon, the alleged Aegon Targaryen, who would be Jon Snow's half-brother. So it seems like Robb may have been used to establish a familial connection between the blue rose and the mummer's dragon. And the answer Dany is looking for about the three heads of the dragon seems to be contained in that passage in Daenerys V, ACoK 63. GRRM gave the answer without ever giving the names. He just gave us the symbolic references to the two characters. Following this, I went back to Quaithe's warning to Dany in her second ADwD chapter. "Hear me, Daenerys Targaryen. The glass candles are burning. Soon comes the pale mare, and after her the others. Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun's son and the mummer's dragon." (Daenerys II, ADwD 11) Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun's son and the mummer's dragon. Kraken (Victarion) and dark flame (Moqorro) are now traveling together. The lion (Tyrion) and the griffin (Jon Connington) were traveling together. The sun's son (Quentyn) and the mummer's dragon (Young Griff / Aegon) were nowhere near each other. Quentyn traveled with Cletus Yronwood, Maester Kedry, William Wells before they died, and continued on his way to Meereen with his remaining companions, Gerris Drinkwater and Archibald Yronwood before he fell in with the Windblown and then brought to Meereen by Daario. Similarly, Aegon traveled with the crew of the Shy Maid, then went to Westeros with the GC. It seems like these two don't fit together, don't make a whole lot of sense together. But they kind of do. The same way Aegon is Jon's half-brother because they would share the same father, Aegon and Quentyn are cousins. It sort of seems like all of this is done with purpose. There are essays I wrote about this down in my signature. One is titled Mother of Dragons, Blue Rose & Mummer's Dragon. The other one is titled The Dragon Has Three Heads.
  5. Close to two months ago I made a post about Galladon of Morne possibly being the original wielder of Lightbringer. There seems to be a whole play on words going on. It started when I was looking at the maps of the Lands of the World of Ice and Fire and spotting the Mountains of the Morn, which are located near the Five Forts and what would have been the ancient Great Empire of the Dawn. Mountains of the Morn in the Great Empire of the Dawn. The Mountains of the Morn made me think of Galladon of Morne. So I looked at Brienne's story about him. The Maiden lost her heart to Galladon and bestowed the Just Maid upon him. Interestingly enough there is also a Maiden in the GEotD, and that's the Maiden-Made-of-Light. And Dawn is said to be alive with light. And Jaime describes the sword in a fight, Arthur v. the Smiling Knight, where his (ordinary) blade could not check Dawn. The sword was all notched and Arthur stopped the fight to allow him to get another sword. So if Galladon's origins are in the Mountains of the Morn(ing), in the Great Empire of the Dawn, then it might place him there during the Long Night. Even the Lion of Night has the same initials as the Long Night. And I think that the story of the forging of Lightbringer when Azor Ahai tries to temper his sword in the heart of a lion might be him trying to kill the Lion of Night. If Dawn originated in the Mountains of the Morn(ing), then it would make it the Sword of the Morning, no? So the title the Sword of the Morning would have more to do with the sword's origins. Galladon (who may or may not have another name) at some point leaves the further east and arrives on Tarth where his landing place becomes known as Morne and he becomes known hence of forth as Galladon of Morne. Then the Andals arrive and we know how big they are on cultural appropriation, so they take the story and make it part of their history and folklore. Instead of the Maiden-Made-of-Light being part of Galladon's tale, it's now the Maiden and of course, the sword is named after her, the Just Maid. If Galladon originated in the Mountains of the Morn(ing), then this could be where House Day(ne) originated and some other Houses might be descendants of whatever children he had. I do want to point out that Dawn is the name of a woman. So the sword of the Dayne might actually be named after her since names in legends vary from one place to the other. I posted about it on my blog here. And on the board right below. As you can see, there was close to zero interest in this, which is why I'm this close to giving up on this fandom.
  6. And now for something completely different. I think Ashara died in King's Landing during the Sack. I think she is the one Gregor murdered in that nursery. Catelyn is the only one who mentions that Ned returned Dawn to Ashara. But in reality, we have no clue if he even saw her since he never brings it up. Ashara had an older brother. So for all intents and purposes, he is the one who should have received Dawn from Ned with an explanation as to what happened to Arthur. I think she died, then to cover up for another Dornish woman whose survival impacts the story in a very big way, the Daynes were asked to put out the story that Ashara killed herself. So they would actually be protecting two secrets instead of just the one. Maybe the story about the pregnancy was just that, a story.
  7. I'm not dodging anything. I do have a theory about it that I think reasonably explains why Viserys turned to the GC and why Jon Connington joined them in the first place. I'm just going to keep it for myself.
  8. Yes, we're told that the men of the company want to go home. Harry Strickland doesn't even wanna go to Westeros without Dany, her dragons and the Unsullied. If this guy is supposed to put a Blackfyre on the throne, he sure as hell is in no hurry to do it without Dany. The Golden Company was fine going to Westeros with Viserys. They were fine going to Westeros with Dany. They officers found out about Aegon only after they reached Volon Therys. We don't know who these members of the GC are. Who is old enough in the company to even remember Maelys the Monstrous? Harry Strickland, maybe? Whose else? The company has people like Lysono Maar and Black Ballaq and people who fled Westeros like Rolly Duckfield and had in their membership a Targaryen loyalist in Jon Connington. If Tristan Rivers is really a Darry bastard, then there are no bigger Targaryen loyalists. Who knows how many more joined the GC at one point or another. Whatever the mission of the GC was in the days of Bittersteel and Maelys the Monstrous, it has been 40 years since he died and Bittersteel has been dead even longer than that. I wrote this about Young Griff and there's a part about the Golden Company there. And there was a reddit thread about this yesterday here.
  9. It will be interesting if the Hightowers do in fact have a glass candle and are watching him in order to prepare for what's coming. At the same time, we know next to nothing about the Hightowers or how good they are at this.
  10. Euron's third eye seems to be fully open, so I think that whatever he is doing, he is following what he's seeing in the visions to get himself from point A to point B. I don't think it matters whether he does the killing himself. And we know he has no problem doing the dirty work himself. He murdered two of his brother and put out a hit on another. I think it comes down to his willingness to make the sacrifice, which he doesn't seem to have issues with. He has pregnant with his child Falia Flowers tied to the prow of the Silence along with his priestly brother.
  11. I can very much see Robert bypassing his rightful heirs and named Ned his successor. But I think that Ned would have turned around and called for a great council.
  12. Mellario is definitely an odd bird, but one interesting thing that shows that she might still be in contact with Doran is the fact that he exiled Drey to Norvos to serve her. So I think that there is more going on here than meets the eye. I can understand why Doran wouldn't want to send Arianne to Norvos with her. Norvos is far away from Dorne and Westeros. He had plans to marry Arianne to Viserys. So the future king and queen of Westeros having spent years over in Essos might not still well with the Westerosi nobility.
  13. Let's say this is Ashara. What is she wearing that makes her eyes look different? Her hair is not dyed since Ashara per Barristan had dark hair.
  14. Cersei became Cersei Baratheon when she married Robert, but she is never once called that. She is always Cersei Lannister. I think it's just a choice on our author's part.
  15. Theon may believe that, but everything that we know about Ned goes contrary to what Theon thinks. Ned took Jon with the consequences that we know, thinks frequently about Rhaegar's murdered children. His friendship with Robert broke down because of it. He has a fight with Robert over his plans to have Dany and her unborn child murdered, tries to get the Lannister children out of King's Landing and away from Robert. I think Ned would have done everything in his power to spare Theon's life if it came to it.
