    Nymor's letter to Aegon

    If Rhaenys was still alive, and Aegon knew about it, then I think he would stop at nothing to save her/get her back tbh. I think she did die, and the letter was a sort of passionate plea for a truce; Aegon seemed a reasonable man, prone to mercy, and I think he would realize revenge would be futile (and if the dornish killed one Targaryen who says they couldn't also kill either him or Visenya too). His conquest was very recent, other lords' loyalty as well, and their power almost entirely rested on their dragons so he might not want to risk anything that would jeopardize what they had done. Just my two cents. Guess it's one of those things that will always remain ambiguos and lost to history, like many in real life.

    Least favourite POV character per book

    Game of Thrones - I'd have to say Sansa but I don't hate them Clash of Kings - Dany Storm of Swords - It's tough but I'm going with Sam simply because he was the new one Feast of Crows - Arys Oakheart and Aeron maybe Dance with Dragons - Quentyn

    So, what's your head canon?

    Melisandre is older than she looks for sure. I always thought that Mariah Martell had a large influence on Dareon and the ruling of the kingdom but in F&B it's said that Alysanne Targaryen was the most politically involved queen of Westeros, bummer. I used to think that the possibility of Tyrion being the son of Aerys and Rhaella was a deliberate misdirection/ red herring, but after F&B I'm not so sure. However a large part of me still really wishes he isn't.....idk him being a Lannister is thematically more interesting and poignant to me, after all Tywin did to him. My headcanons for the ending (so not exactly headcanons) are: Dany and Jon die heroically along with the dragons (if the 3 last that long and i'm not sure if Jon will ride one tbh) but Tyrion survives Either Bran remains in the cave or goes back to Winterfell. I'd actually love if both he and Rickon survived and ruled Winterfell after the end, maybe with Rickon as king and Bran as an adviser. Following from the above, I think Westeros will go back to being separate kingdoms, or at least the North, and Dorne. As far as the other characters I really don't have specific wishes. There's things I wish could/would happen - like Sansa warging something, or Aegon being real after all, or Jon and Dany not happening romantically lol - but anything Martin decides will be okay with me.
  4. I do that when Jorah (?) convinces her to stop at the bay of slaves while they're on their way to Pentos, knowing what we know now. ugh

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    I agree with you. Claiming Martin doesn't suffer from that habit like many other (most?) male authors is disregarding the text. Yep. That said, I was actually surprised by the amount of female characters in F&B, and the attention paid to them. Targaryen women are way more interesting than the men. But I found the quick successive deaths of Jaeherys' and Alysanne's children a bit too much.
  6. I think it's definitely interesting, I think it's great that Martin tried exploring other places outside the european-inspired Westeros, but the execution of it was not that great.

    the dwarf woman's dream in storm of swords.

    Well I first responded to the part where you said it was ''ruled out''. Excuse me if I misread it but I assumed you meant that it was impossible that it referred to the scene with the doll. And I did get the Hitchcock thing, but since my interpretation of Sansa's scene is different, I don't see it as the kind of situation he refers to.

    the dwarf woman's dream in storm of swords.

    What do you mean it's 'ruled out'? Sansa destroying the doll IS what the dream refers to. Or are you saying that that scene is just a coincidence matching the old woman's dream? It's not a red herring, it is what it says. But - and this is what I thought you guys mean with all those threads - some people say it will be used later by Martin as foreshadowing something else. I disagree. The ''significance'' is in the dream being metaphorical; by reading it you would never think of a doll and a small snow castle, but of a more literal event, or at least the ''giant'' representing a person. And the fact it's Sansa would be surprising, but it turns out to be a doll and a snow castle, naturally. Neither that part or the first part of the dream are straight, literal, visions (is Sansa's hair actually made of serpents?) (Oh but apparently the second part is not, according to some, Sansa! Woah. We're at the 'directly contradicting the text' phase.) I don't see the problem with it. And I don't need a Hitchcock explanation to explain something so simple, that million writers have done before, and continue to do. But you guys are free to think of endless possibilities that will never happen about something that has already happened, and I am free to not be interested in discussing those alternate realities.

    the dwarf woman's dream in storm of swords.

    Unlike some people here, I believe the second part refers to Sansa destroying Robert's doll inside the Winterfell snow castle, at the end of the novel, as one would realize after reading that part. But apparently that's too simple for some folks. I do not envy Mr. Martin.
  10. I myself have little faith that we will ever see the end of these books and for that reason I've made my peace, if you will. And I have no hard feelings towards Martin or towards these series. I honestly haven't cared about the rest of it for many years. I love it, yes, and I will still read it again, and enjoy it while doing so, but for the past 4/5 years I've been slowly letting it go. And what else is there to do? If I'm wrong and we get to read the books then great! But if we don't I won't care and I just hope that people don't gang up on Martin because of it. He owns nothing to us and he's entitled not to finish this if he doesn't want to. Watch the show, read something else, read fanfic, make your own ending. I know it's frustrating but it hasn't been months or a year since Dance come out, you know what I mean? A part of me remains optimistic (of course! I love this series, so how could I not be?) but. Shit happens.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I honestly can see number 4 happening in the books but with somebody else as king or queen at the end instead of Tyrion. So if that happens on the show I would actually be pleased. Out of those 4 options that's the one that seems more likely and fitting (I would let Tyrion remain Hand). In my opinion there is no way number 2 will happen in the books (the first part, not so much Tyrion dying) and I doubt they'll put it in the show; it's just not the right ending for this show/series. I also don't see number 3 - Dany being queen - happening, and thee Night King winning seems unlikely, although being the one ending not affected by the books, who knows what D&D will pull.

    What's going to fill the largest part in TWOW?

    The story in Essos.

    Bran's next chapter

    I agree. Bran's next chapters will be very interesting. I find it surprising that some don't quite care about skinchanging or green dreams but I absolutely love that aspect of the series, and Bran too. But the chapter I'm anticipating the most is definitely Melisandre's,.

    Wow, I never noticed that v.17

    "I will tell you," said Davos, "if you will tell me who betrayed me." It could only have been Salladhor Saan, and yet even now he prayed it was not so. The red woman laughed. "No one betrayed you, onion knight. I saw your purpose in my flames." - Davos III, ASOS "If the wildling had meant her harm, she would have seen it in her flames. Danger to her own person was the first thing she had learned to see, back when she was still half a child, a slave girl bound for life to the great red temple. It was still the first thing she looked for whenever she gazed into a fire." - Melisandre, ADWD
