    The Updated Exodus Theory and its Corollaries

    Personally, I think dani has learned her lesson with meereen, she might cross essos and leave a string of burning cities in her wake, but she will no longer attempt to rule them, this could still work for your theory though.

    Is Asha pregnant?

    Gonna be honest I had not really thought much about this one before but I kinda like it, especially the whole salt hisband thing

    How far south will the Others get?

    Winterfell, I honestly don't think there is enough time(well really space, and by that I mean only 2 books left) for them to get any further south than that without a whole lot of action happening "off page"

    Predict her future: Penny

    Honestly as a likeable ancillary character, worst case she dies like Syrio, best case she disappears into the background and escapes the game of thrones like hot pie.
  6. For me Dani, Sansa and Brienne are the top candidates, while I think Cersei herself may have been threatened by Sansa(I certainly think so but Cersies POVs do not start until after Sansa leaves the city so we see no direct interaction from Cersei POV), and definitely Marge, based on her thoughts and actions in her Chapters. I think the other part of the prophecy(about Cerseis kids dieing) rules out Myrcella as a possibility, so I don't think its her. We also don't technically know if Val or Asha(I think she's younger than Cersei but as far as I remember we don't know her age) is actually younger than Cersei. I mention this because the younger part seems the more important/easiest factor to identify of said prophecy. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all P.S. I'm a big fan of the Martells and Arianne specifically, for this reason solely, I'm convinced they are all going to die, and have no Hope's for thier future.

    Minor/offscreen characters you want to see more of

    Hugo Wull....who wants to be six and twenty again. Edit: lots of IB hate up top but I like them, particularly Theon,(not as a person, I find his arc interesting, and feel like it's not over.)and Roderick the reader, and I think Euron is an interesting, compelling and sufficiently dangerous and/or mysterious character to be a worthwhile villain going forward.

    Which minor houses do you want to see more of?

    Reanyra's maybe Velaryon sons all rode dragons. So did Adam, brother of Alyn Oakenfist,( who was most likely the Seasnakes bastard) all died during the Dance. There might have been a couple before them, I forget off the top of my head Dragon riders, not Dragonlords.
  9. I'm not sure, I think Ned would not have moved against Robert's trueborn son, but I also don't think he would simply let everything lie with the Lannisters when he thinks that they tried to kill Bran. I this scenario I honestly think it's much more likely he takes Renly up on his original offer to take Joffery in hand by force, but Ned is truly not a great player of the game, the outcome would probably be the same in the end, sadly.

    Would Littlefinger have still “rescued” Sansa

    I think so, it seems to me that Sansa's child,especially if Male, would be a more valuable hostage than Sansa herself. And don't forget, that's what she is, a hostage. Littlefinger does not rescue her from the Lannisters, he steals a valuable hostage for himself, no matter what lies he tells Sansa

    Poll: Is Sweetrobin the Son of Littlefinger?

    I'm gonna say yes to this one....lots of circumstantial evidence but as of yet no smoking gun, this one makes sense to me from a thematic/literary the way some other theories do not.(though I fully acknowledge with Lysa dead, future revelations may be hard to come by.) P.S. Sorry Platypus, I know that sounds hypocritical based on the answers I've give to some of your other polls but, it is what it is.)

    Playtime with Foreshadowing: Bran's Vision in AGOT

    Ned seems to do this as well, for what it's worth, he opens the window and stands by it after him and Cat bone, right before they get Lysas letter. He is also visibly bothered by the heat in Kings Landing in several of his chapters. As to the OP this topic actually interests me greatly, and agree that this scene is loaded with foreshadowing, some of which seems to have already come to pass. Also the dream itself can be viewed as foreshadowing of the powers he will day wield but also brings up questions,(Is the dream itself brans power, or did someone send it, if so, who, and why)again, some of which seem to be answered, some maybe not. The tears burning Brans face I'm not really sure what to make of to be honest but I see the part about Bran and heart of winter mainly as a metaphor for Bran accepting his fate and deciding to be brave, even though he's afraid.

    Poll: Is Daario actually Euron?

    I did not mean to make Dario sound simple or not intelligent, the comparison to Bron was meant as a compliment. I do think something is up with him obviously, if for nothing other than Dani trusts him way too much. So to answer your question I think it is more likely that he is a spy for Ilyrio/Varys or his is working for/is the Harpy. We are now getting into very interesting territory, the Dario quote you provided clearly reminds you of Euron, with the quote from Euron Gould provided reminding you of Dario. While I understand why you would make this connection, I didn't and still don't. It is a sell sword bragging that he's killed a lot of people.(granted, he does it in a very poetic way, one might even say grandiose if they were inclined to haha), Euron also says he kills a lot of people, with a healthy dose of blasphemy thrown in, but his speech is more about the affect he has on those still living,(From Ibb to Asshai people see my sails and pray)than bragging about past accomplishments. So I read a couple of the other responses and want to say that personally I took no offense to anything you said to me.

    Poll: Is Daario actually Euron?

    Very well, the evidence is enough for you in this case, for me, it's not. To be clear, yes, I believe though Barristan, Jorah or someone else Dani's entourage, we would be given a little more, even at this stage. And it really doesn't have to be one of them, our friends on the Cinnamon Wind(whose names escape me unfortunately) for example could have made a comment that Sam did not fully understand but the reader did, Placing Silence anywhere but where its supposed to be at a given time. No I don't think either of them are nice, just slightly different kind of assholes. Dario while not nice by any means, seems more practical and grounded in his concerns, manners, and actions, I would compare him more to Bron. Euron is a lot more grandiose conversely, also probably addicted to a mind altering pyscoactive and possibly magical substance. Seems much less stable and more introverted than Dario.(also another great example of would be proof that isn't there, Darios lips,). And how do you know that's not the Harlaw nose? Haha(kidding)

    Is x character a psychopath?

    This is one of my favorites, very well done

    Last One Standing

    So my first answer would also beBran but since so many have said that already I'll throw someone else in. Theon I think if he was going to die he would have already, and personally it seems living is the bigger punishment for him, if he just dies he gets off to easy.

    Poll: Is Daario actually Euron?

    I mean more that if there was something there to notice...someone would have, since no one has in my opinion, the coincidental evidence we do have is not enough, like I said, it doesn't necessarily have to be Silence, that's just the first thing that came to mind,(and I think it parallels nicely with stranger, the other evidence is suspect but stranger puts it over the top for many people, a sighting of Silence, would do the same, at least for me.) it could be anything. There is not enough there yet to prove this for me, baring a future reveal. Just because something could be possible from timeline wise doesnt mean it is. Also for the record I personally do not find thier personalities all that similar, definitely not as similar as you seem to think so. Dario seems to me to have the brash arrogance of a young man, while Eurons confidence comes more from the effect he has on others(he knows people fear him) and seems slightly older in when he talks and how he acts(again opinion).

    Poll: Is Daario actually Euron?

    So....Silence is described as a shall we say notable ship, black sails, red hull, crewed by mutes easily recognized. Much like the hounds horse, stranger, easily recognized by the readers even though the POV character we see it through does not know its name. It is the biggest clue and what gives away the hound to the readers. So where is Silence when Euron/Dario is zipping back and forth across the world, someone would notice it. And I don't like it particularly has to be Silence, but to me(and apparently many others judging by the responses)I need more than a slightly similar personality and that fact that a vague timeline could possibly allow something to be sure. If Euron had Darrios swords or Dario had Eurons armor from the preview chapter I could buy it. Someone did mention the Red Oarsman and Bloodbeard, I admit I missed this and will explore it further on my own, still vote no though. I do suppose one could argue that as the plot line is not resolved, said reveal could be forthcoming still.

    Killing an old R+L=J/Kingsguard theory off for good: Fire & Blood

    Personally I think if anything the info on the kg complicates the whole situation rather than simplifying it. Drawing from FaB, and later info on the main series, we learn that kings guard are simply people, not the inhuman bastions of chivalry they are first made out to be.( sure there are exceptions, but even the dragon knight might have boned his sister, who was married to his brother)And as such, these 3 could have a very large number of reasons to be where they are, they are pieces in the game, ask not why they themselves are there but who put them there? And why? Basically, are they working for Reagar? Or Aerys? and if it's the first who else is involved?

    Badass moments of Jon Snow.

    I must admit, figuring out how to perform oral sex without being told about it is without a doubt the most unbelievable part of Jon's entire story when you really think about it.... Totally badass

    Poll: Is Jon Snow the son of a Dayne?

    Regardless of whether they are his parents(of which there is no textual proof) a "secret marriage" does not equal a legal one. If no one knows the parents are legally married, the child is a bastard. So his name stays Jon Snow in your scenario. To be clear I do not think they are his parents, but that's not really the point. Marriage exists in Westeros(among the upper class) solely as a vehicle to make alliances and pass on property. A marriage no one knows about defeats the purpose. Honestly my opinion of Brandon is that he( Wolf Blood and all) would never make the mistake his nephew Robb later did, and we in fact have textual proof this, he had no problem fucking Lady Dustin and not marrying her, why do you assume Ashara Dayne would be any different?

    Which minor houses do you want to see more of?

    Don't know if these count but I've greatly enjoyed what little we have seen of the Northern Mountain Clansmen(primarily in Stannis' Army), and would like to see more of them. On the other end of the Continent, The yronwoods, how much do they know of and support Doran's scheming, Is there any type of cultural divide between them and the more Rohyonish influenced houses in the Eastern part of Dorne, if Quentyn was some kind of quasi hostage why did they allow him to leave?

    Poll: Is Jon Snow the son of a Dayne?

    Personally I think whoever Jon's parents are, his real surname is Snow, Sand, or Waters.... Pick any of the possible candidates discussed in this thread, no two of them can produce a legally legitimate child. Jon IS a bastard, it's half the point of his story I think
