  1. Wow. Started reading that thread @Seams but can't finish it at the moment. What I've read so far is really great! Can't wait to finish it. Have you ever paid much attention to the illustrations in the Kot7K? There are some really great ones that reinforce the symbolism. Link to a tweet with illustration because I don't know how to upload images here.
  2. I agree. Especially about Tanselle = Symbolic Bloodraven. I've even considered Tanselle literally being BR in disguise - the Maynard Plumm of The Hedge Knight. Although, that is probably going too far. The puppet show is the trigger which eventually leads to the death of the Hand of the King and BR's appointment as the new Hand. So a symbolic BR sets in motion a chain of events that ends with BR as the new Hand. Quite the puppet master, indeed.
  3. @Seams Hi Seams! I'm originally an ASOIAF Redditor and have since moved my discussion of ASOIAF to Twitter. I have never been very active on this forum but have since become friends with some of those who have. I'm also really into wordplay within the series and have heard of you as a result (most often via my good friend @ravenous reader). I've also noticed the treason/tree-son wordplay GRRM seems to be using. The first time I noticed it was when I came across the passage that @The Map Guy quotes. But there are many more where it makes sense. Hatching a wooden dragon = tree son. White h[e]art = weirwood. Or two... Those are just a few. Much of it is merely to reinforce greenseer symbolism. Also, you may be interested in an essay I wrote regarding GRRM's use of 'True' and 'Tree': Wed to the Tree Cheers!
