    Heresy 218 a brief walk on the dark side

    Long time no talk! Haha in my interesting tidbit project for feast, the way the text is written in regards to the glass candles of the prologue, either: there are a total of four glass candles (1 green, three black) or the citadel has four of which many more exist. I am inclined to believe the former. i believe quaithe has one, urrathon nightwalker has one in Qarth (and I think he is actually Euron Greyjoy), and the Citadel has one. So where is the fourth? I think the Others or the 3EC. Since this glads candles are a Valyrian magic, if I am correct, this could link the Valyrians to the old gods
  2. THIS. yes, I think the fact that he wasn't really instructed on how to rule well, or consulted on ruling manners, in addition to his horrific childhood, made Aegon III who he was.

    I've thought of that, but Nymeria or Tyene (I can't remember which) notes that "Obara hates that city as much as our little sister loves it" So I don't think she is being a spy for Obara, at least.

    I am rereading Feast for my tidbit project, and something that really stuck out to me this time was Obara and her wanting to take an army to Oldtown. Why? I get that she is the daughter of an Oldtown whore, but why would that cause her to want to bring the whole city to torch, especially if she left there so young? In addition, I just finished reading Fire and Blood, and the Hightowers feature prominently in Targaryen and Westerosi history, yet they have been fairly absent during all of this conflict. Another interesting point I learned from my tidbit project, too, is that "supposedly" you can see the Wall from the Hightower. Now, I doubt that you really can, but where did that saying come from? Is the Hightower supposed to be a beacon of sorts?

    What should we expect from the Vale?

    Ah thank you for correcting me. I like this a lot. And they would know that Sansa was married to Tyrion? Or at least remember her?

    The thinning pants metaphor - omg! Too funny! But I see your point exactly. I should have phrased better - the dragons arrival certainly sprouted more magic but it clearly was around prior, given what we know about the eights and the Others. That said, what caused the Others to return? Or, if you prefer, what caused the hinges to start fraying?

    Heresy 217 Dreams and Dust

    If you go to the ReRead page, you will see my "interesting tidbit project" where I am rereading Feast (and encouraging others to do the same in other texts!) and finding an interesting tidbit or fact on each page. Some are mundane, but it is forcing me to think about things and see things I have missed previously. Including a tidbit referring to this - Pg. 12 of the paperback version of Feast (American edition, if it matters) the novices at the Citadel are talking and they remark that there are four glass candles 3 black and 1 green. However, the way it is written, I am inclined to think that there are 4 total, of which the Citadel has only 1. But that could be up for interpretation. Regardless, a slight answer to your question above. I think they are something more, at least the green one. @The Snowfyre Chorus Excellent quote. It seems to indicate that the dragons are the root. Even though it appears after the Undying sequence, I would hazard to put it chronologically so. Dany only has 5 chapters throughout that whole book, so it is hard to say where other events fall in relation to hers.

    I'm inclined to think that the glass candles burning predates or occurs when the dragons are born. The Others are active before the dragons are born, so there is something magical stirring. however, the news of magic seems to occur around the same time as the dragons, so I am inclined to think that the dragons birth caused the glass candles to burn. An interesting thought, though, that I had while typing the above is that the wights are brought across the Wall into Castle Black, and then the dragons are born...did the crossing the Wall threshold/barrier start the fraying that @Feather Crystal posited earlier in this thread? I have posited in another thread months ago that Bloodraven and Aemon arriving at the Wall at the same time may be the reason that the Others started up again. Why now? I wonder if Bloodraven crossing the border to go on a ranging caused a magical barrier to start to break. Just some errant thoughts.

    I agree that the mountain clans are a Chekov's gun at this point. However, I thought Twyin dispatched them to the Kingswood to deal with problems there? This is interesting. For whatever your opinion of it is, the show changed stuff. However, I think some things that have been most frequently grumbled about are actually only going to be small changes to condense storylines. This would fit that mold.

    What if Tywin had faced Robb and lost?

    Eh, they would either join Robb or still march. They stood with Renly, so regardless, they couldn't have Stannis on the throne or he would be bound to extinguish their house.

    Interesting observation!

    I have posited that I think Urrathon Night-Walker is actually Euron Greyjoy, and that he set up home in Qarth after his exile from the Iron Islands.

    I'm liking this pattern: past, false future, actual future. Need to reread to work on this.

    This is very interesting! Now, why do you think the wards are fraying? Just curious, not trying to pick. Ah, fair point. I concede that I was rash in my generalization. Thank you! If the book events pertaining to Hodor are similar to the show (and I think they ill be similar in substance, even if context is a bit off, given what the show runners and GRRM have said pertaining to the events), then I think it is very possible that the end game is that Bran has to die for the Others to die. Generally, I try to keep show discussions to show and book discussion to book. However, GRRM is still an executive producer, even if he isn't involved in day to day events, and I think some things that they do could indicate things for book, even if they are distorted to make it, not necessarily more palatable, but more receptive to larger audiences. With that said, here is my theory that involves show spoilers, so I am hiding it.
