    I've just found out that there are 4 types of angels, and one of them are called thrones. Suddenly, "the game of thrones" started to get another meaning. Like "the scheme of angels". Or maybe the angels are "the game"... "a game of thones"... like the pray in the forest that is referred to as "game". And one more thing, is something about a wheel within a wheel with eyes on it... not sure if is one and a same thing with the thrones or it is a related thing. Ophanim or galgalim is the name of the wheel. So, I am thinking "break the wheel" and "a thousand eyes and one" from the book... not sure how to connect the dots or if it means anything. If anyone knows more about it, please share some light on the subject. Thanks.
  2. I don't know why, but I still think Benjen Stark is Jon's father. Always belived this. I have a few points for this: - Benjen calls Jon "son" - Benjen thinks that taking the black is a bad move and then he tries to convince Jon to change his mind - then have a moment on the wall, the "I wanted to be here when you saw it for the first time"; for me is like a parent thing, who wants to be there for the important moments of his kid's life - Jon did not had a perfect childhood and Benjen was never there for him, but he hoped that Jon will have a family of his own one day, love someone and maybe ever be finally happy (since Benjen cannot have other children of his own and he did not get the chance to raise his only son).... not sure about the woman and the love in Benjen's case... maybe he only loved Lyanna and does not even think of someone else. And then, why is Benjen in the NW anyway? And further more, regarding the incest betwin Benjen and Lyanna in the tent, at the tournament.... that will explain Ned's reaction to Cercei. Ned told Cercei she can take the cildrens and leave, just like he told Benjen he can take the black and he will keep the secret. No women and children in the NW, so no place for Cercei there.... incest/incest, banished/banished. Ned did it again. Oh and, Ned did not tried to stop Jon for taking the back... how could he? His father was there. And the "promise me Ned", I don't get this at all. First of all, what ever the promise was, we can assume Ned did not kept it (because he talks of broken promises... so maybe he promised multiple things to Lyanna or he made also other promises... maybe one to Benjen??) And second of all, why, why was Ned the one making a promise?? Ok. Let's say Lyanna was closed to death, after childbirth, let's say the baby was Jon, father of the new born let's even say it was Rhaegar. Well... If I was near my sister's death bed, and she was in pain, no chance to survive, bleading, then I will be the one making lots of talking and lots of promises: don't worry my sweet sister... I will raise the child like my own... everything will be okay.... I am here for you... hold my hand and so on. I always belived the promise had nothing to do with the baby. 1. Because Ned was reluctant to do it. And maybe even didn't done it at all (broken promises thing). 2. Because Lyanna had to ask (taking care of his nephew would suposse to came natural in a world when every birth is a risk of death... even if the baby was born from incest... or even if he was half Targaryan... ) 3. Might be that it had something to do with Robert, and Ned was reluctant because he and Robert were so good friends. And now, since he is hand of the kind, memories are coming back to him. And finally, why Ned did not think of Rhaegar? If he was the father, right?

    A bride for Raeghar from Volantis? No... only a fool.

    I know nothing... Thank you all for answering.
  5. Did Cressen really belived that by killing Mellisandre will stop the spreading of R'hllor Faith beyond Dragonstone? Mellisandre was only a vessel, not the hole religion. Or did he tried to do it because he regarded Stannis as his own son, and did not wanted for him to change his Faith like his wife was done? Did he made the decission on his own? Where the maesters from Old Town behind this, and Cressen was only trying to fulfil a task?

    A bride for Raeghar from Volantis? No... only a fool.

    That was my first thought. Blonde hair and purpe eyes. But Elia does not have blonde hair. And Volantis is full of slaves. And that made me wonder if they were looking for a wife or a slave. Hence the confussion. Did not knew about the friendship to lord Steffon. Thanks. Now makes sense. So maybe king Aerys did not expect to have another childers (no wonder since there was a 16 years gap betwin Rhaegar and Viserys) and trully wanted to find a good match for his son. One more question. How did Elia came into the picture? Cannot remember, just started rereading ACoK.
  7. "Patchface had come to them as a boy. Lord Steffon of cherished memory had found him in Volantis, across the narrow sea. The king-the old king, Aerys II Targaryen, who had not been quite so mad in those days, had sent his lordship to seek a bride for Prince Rhaegar, who had no sisters to wed. “We have found the most splendid fool,” he wrote Cressen, a fortnight before he was to return home from his fruitless mission. “Only a boy, yet nimble as a monkey and witty as a dozen courtiers. He juggles and riddles and does magic, and he can sing prettily in four tongues. We have bought his freedom and hope to bring him home with us." Okay... Raeghar had no sisters. Got that. Lord Steffon was sent to find him a wife. And he came back to Dragonstone with a fool. But why a bride from Volantis? And why lord Steffon? What am I missing here? This is confusing. The mission was "fruitless". Was this the only mission? Was Elia the product of some other serch mission? Don't even want to consider Lyanna... that seams to be Raeghar's mission... so maybe he took things in his own hands at some point.

    https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/álaʼ https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/yayá I've found this. Can be interesting. I immediately thought at the valonqar prophesy. So, yaya means older sister or brother and ala can mean hand. Only yaya is older brother, not little brother... so... But you can still make it work, crack pot for sure. Both Cercei and Tyrion had a relationship with Alayaya (Cercei had her whipped , and Tyrion found her to be tall... a older brother usually is taller... so maybe this is GRRM way of a twist since Tyrion is a imp. Plus... Tyrion was the hand.... Plus plus... Alayaya is black and Cersei's neck pale... so again, totally opposite again.
  9. "A hellhound is a supernatural dog in folklore. A wide variety of ominous or hellishsupernatural dogs occur in mythologies around the world. Features that have been attributed to hellhounds include mangled black fur, glowing red eyes, super strength and speed, ghostly or phantom characteristics, and a foul odor." Hello. I've just started rereading ACoK. Does anyone here believes there might be a connection betwin the hellhound statue from Dragonstone and the direwolfs of the Stark boys? Ghost has the red eyes, Grey Wind has the speed, Shaggy Dog has the mangled black fur, not sure about the odor... and together they have the attributes of a hellhound... Taking into consideration that a statue of a wyvern is next to the hellhound, should we draw the connections to Dany's dragons? The Prologue does begin with the comet's tail, and the wyvern has a tail like an arrow head.... And what about this: it is dawn but the comet has the colour of sunset... any meaning or just narrative colouring? Am I connecting the dots that aren't there? Is beautiful, but also feels strange.... Does it have any meaning or it's just the author weaving a tapestry on the sky?

    Hello, Here is my interpretation... For me Sansa comes from Şansă. Maybe because I am from Romania and this was the first association I have ever made. That means luck, good luck, chance, chance of luck, portability and ocassion to do something. Also, for me Val comes from Vali, short for Valentina or Vasilica. Vasilica means queen. Also it drove me to think at the french word Basilique, with means church. Now, I did not knew about Nissa Nissa. But after looking on-line I've found about nassa nassa ( so... one letter away... ) and that means fish trap, creel. The anagram for nassa is Sansa. And she is half Tully... so fish trap... also she is beeing hold like a trapped fish in Cercei's fish net ( and later on Littlefinger's trap). I don't make predictions, but maybe Sansa will be the next Nissa Nissa... I've always belived that it will be Val, don't know why, but know I've changed my mind.... anyway... And, in the end, talking about the other half of Sansa's parentage, the Lord Eddard Stark.... I've found this and made me go crazy. Here is the link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_(Scottish) GRRM was talking about Ned beeing honourable on and on... imagine my surprise when I've found this. I was wondering if he knew about it and this was his way to make a strange twist, like he usually does. That's all for now. Please excuse my poor English.
