    Rises in the West

    @Lost Melnibonean Yeah man, you've got me convinced alright. Thanks. And can I just say what an honor it is to actually spark a discussion? I'm new to this theorising business and I usually just join in on pointless arguments, but this is a lot more fun TBH.

    Rises in the West

    Alright, so I got a half-baked one, but I still think it might be significant. And I'm not sure whether I can claim credit for it, because although I don't think I've ever seen it before I "came up with it", I can't be certain. I think that the prophecy/curse of Mirri Maz Duur is coming to a close. To recap: after Dany has the godswife save Khal Drogo's life only for him to end up in a coma, Daenerys asks, "When will he be as he was?", to which follows: "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east," said Mirri Maz Duur. "When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before." Now, needless to say, Mirri is more than just a healer. She performs blood magic before our very eyes, and she claims to have learned westerosi healing arts from none other than Maester Marwyn, who is so learned in everything mystical that he's got Valyrian steel " mask and ring and rod" and has "the Mage" as a nickname. I believe Mirri, perhaps unwittingly, made a sort of prophecy. The line that has me convinced is the one about the sun. I find it sort of transparent that it refers to Quentyn Martell. He hails from Dorne in Westeros, travels east to Meereen, and promptly gets himself killed. I believe this qualifies as "rises in the west and sets in the east". Coincidences may be a real thing in the real world, but not in literature, definitely not in THIS literature. Now, as for the rest, that's why I say my theory is half-baked - my ideas are as vague as they come. "The seas go dry" could refer to the Ironborn, who are getting increasingly significant, or perhaps to the arid Dothraki Sea, or to something else entirely. "The mountains blow in the wind like leaves" point me to the Mountain, who may or may not already be sort of dead, and may or may not be set up for a second death. Or it might mean some literal mountains getting destroyed, which Euron Greyjoy's supposed prepared blood magic sacrifice cataclysm shenanigans can easily cause. And the last two lines, the one about wombs and children and the one about Drogo returning, confound me utterly. It could mean the dragons, or literal children which we are yet to see. It could mean a metaphorical return, something spiritually significant for Dany. Or something else which I hope you fellows can spot where I haven't. Or it might be the loose thread that causes this whole theory to unravel. Thoughts?

    @Ckram Ah. Thanks for the advice, friend. I'll be sure to do that.
