  1. In AFFC in a Jaime chapter, Jaime reflects on a time he came to Riverrun with a letter from Sumner Crakehall now I think there is a good chance that this letter came from Tywin but the contents of it allude me. Hoster was always trying to wed Lysa so I don't believe Tywin would be trying to convince Hoster of a marriage between her and Jaime. I don't think the letter had anything to do with the tourney of Harrenhal since it wasn't announced until 280 AC and Jaime said he was still a squire "green as summer grass" when he was sent to deliver the letter. If Tywin's intention was to marry Jaime to Lysa it would happen as Hoster was always looking for a good husband for Lysa.
  2. I just feel like Tywin wouldn't care if they knew each other. He seems to make all his moves out of political motivation, and if he was thinking of marrying Jaime to Lysa it would be quid pro quo, and what was in the letter might have been what he wants in return.

    Dany's three betrayals

    I always felt like the treasons were going to be much larger scale like wars. I think the treason for blood is the second siege of Meereen, where the masters are trying to win back slavery. The treason for Gold could be her war with the Golden Company. The treason for love is a bit early to decide, it could be a war against Jon, or it could be a war against one her own dragons.

    Why Does Darkstar Matter?

    Doran made Darkstar an important character by labeling him "the most dangerous man in Dorne". While he is a skilled swordsman, I doubt Doran was referring to Darkstars combat efficiency, I believe he was referring to his knowledge. It could be Darkstar has information about the ToJ (I believe the Martells had something to do with it), or information on Dorans plots. I have a suspicion that Darkstar is going to take the role of a new Vulture King, and possibly Samwell Tarly is going to kill him with Heartsbane like the 1st vulture king. Darkstar is actively trying to throw Dorne into the war, and he even looks like a King Vulture (White with black streaks).

    The Stone Dragon of Skagos

    So I believe there is a Dragon living on Skagos. I think this dragon is the one Melisandre refers to as the "Stone Dragon", and "Skagos" means stone in the old tongue. Melisandre mentions her powers are strongest when she arrives at Eastwatch, we know from the warlocks that their powers are strongest in the presence of dragons, Eastwatch is close to Skagos. Now we have the question of where this dragon came from? Well we have 2 dragons missing after a dance of the dragons; Sheepstealer who Nettles rode off to Essos with, and Cannibal, who just seems to have disappeared entirely. Well Cannibal was a wild dragon who was never tamed, and got its name from eating smaller dragons and attacking the hatchery and eating dragon eggs. After the dance it disappeared never to be seen again... at least that's what were told. There is a rumor of the Skagosi being cannibals, I believe this to be a reference to Cannibal living on Skagos. Skagos would be an ideal place for a dragon to go to, it has one of the most abundant sources of sea life, and the land is mountainous and cavernous. The people who live on this Island don't communicate much with the mainland which would keep the story of dragons on Skagos to a minimum, but there are still some rumors. The Skagosi also dwell in caves, which would offer good protection from a dragon. There's stories of ships being lured to their deaths with false lights, dragons breath fire and fire is light. We also have to take into consideration of what Summer/Bran (or Bummer for short) see after the sack of Winterfell, a winged snake whose roar was a river of flame. If the dragon was on Skagos that would explain why there is no real reports of dragons in Westeros being seen. We learned from the fighting pits that dragons are attracted to battle, when Drogon arrived after the fighting had started (though you could say Dany summoned it). I believe there are 2 possibilities on who this dragon is, it's either Cannibal, or an egg that Cannibal had swallowed from the hatcheries that he passed on Skagos and it hatched. Now we have Rickon and Osha supposedly going to Skagos, which gave me an idea. What if the winged wolf that Jojen came to free wasn't Bran at all, but it was Rickon? I understand this theory is pretty crackpot but I feel it does have some validity.

    The Stone Dragon of Skagos

    Stories tend to be misconstrued over time, A sailor saying he seen Cannibal flying over Skagos, Can easily become Cannibals at Skagos, which turns into the Skagosi are cannibals. Misinterpreting things is actually quite common in ASOIAF, think of visions, prophecies, battles, songs, and even other stories. While that doesn't necessarily mean the rumor of cannibals on Skagos come from a dragon, It could easily be northern propaganda since the Starks often warred with the Skagosi, or it could just be truth. It's open for interpretation since we don't actually have first hand accounts of Skagos.

    The Stone Dragon of Skagos

    I just feel there is no reason for Dragon Eggs now, It's too late in the books for them to be of any use since they would still need to grow. Also dragon eggs wouldn't explain what Summer saw at Winterfell.

    The Stone Dragon of Skagos

    I consider the others to be magical, they seem to have been active before Dany's dragons hatched. Mance was already gathering his army at the start of Game of Thrones so the others must've been active for awhile. We also know the skinchangers and Children of the Forest were active before Dany's dragons, I'd consider them magical too. Bloodraven was still greenseeing as well. To me Dany's dragons strengthened the magic, but I don't know if it exactly "woke the old powers".

    5 wackiest Crackpot "theories"

    I have pretty crazy crackpot theory about Euron being the smiling knight. The theory being the smiling knight wasn't actually killed but seriously wounded. The 3EC seems to be linked to death visiting Bran and Jojen only after near death experiences, and visiting Euron after his near death experience which explains Euron's symbolism with the 3EC. This being hinted at when Theon refers to Euron's patched eye as his "smiling eye". Jaime said the smiling knight was "a madman, cruelty and chivalry all jumbled up together, but he did not know the meaning of fear." which does seem to describe Euron pretty well. But i do acknowledge this theory is pretty crackpot having little evidence.

    Elia Martell: Yes, another Septa Lemore speculation

    I don't fully understand where the whole Ashara+Howland thing comes from. I don't remember any foreshadowing or set up for that theory. I always assumed Jyana Reed is actually Lyanna Reed (Lyanna Stark) and that Jojen is the name Howland is using to travel by. Meera would be their only child, which is why Bran is reminded of Arya so much by Meera, and Arya reminds Ned of Lyanna. As for Septa Lemore I believe she is Tyene Sand's mother. I'm pretty sure Elia's body was identifiable. Elia is described as flat chested while Tyrion had this to say of Lemore, I believe Tyene Sand's mother is how Doran knew about Griff and when they landed, she's his inside woman.

    Did the Red Comet _____ ?

    I think the Red comet is of the same black stone that the Bloodstone Emperor worshipped. After the black stone fell from the sky it ushered in the long night. I think this red comet is doing the same and the long night will come again. I also think Euron went to the crash sight of the comet and currently has a piece of it. TWoW Spoiler

    Tom Waits - All the World is Green (Song about a dream of summer) Flogging Molly - If I ever leave this World alive (Maybe a Catelyn/LSH song) Johnny Cash - Hurt (for some reason makes me think of Tywin Lannister) The Pogues/Dubliners - The Irish Rover (Feels Like a Greyjoy song) Scorpions - Yellow Raven (reminds me of Bran) Tom Waits - The Part you throw away (Tyrion and Shae, Sounds like something Symon Silver Tongue could have written) Tom Waits - Dead and Lovely (Now this reminds me of Ros, I know its a show character but it fits so well) The Dead South - That Bastard Son (Fits Tyrion to a T, "All dwarfs are bastards in their father’s eyes") [Some lines from the song; "I don't feel no more I just want liquor and dirty whores" and "With all your cheat and all your lies Your faithful father won't forgive Your crimes"]

    Elia Martell: Yes, another Septa Lemore speculation

    The value of those eggs are immense, I don't think he would waste that just for Dany to die in the Dothraki Sea and let the eggs go to nothing. Illyrio obviously had to know something about hatching eggs, and how Targaryens would put the eggs that did hatch in cribs with Targaryen children. (Of course eggs don't necessarily need a Targaryen to hatch) but i do believe he felt Dany would have the ability to hatch the eggs. Now on (f)Aegon being a backup plan, was poorly said, I think he is the main goal to make king, but Dany's main use was the dragons, whether she were to marry (f)Aegon or just find a way to tame the dragons away from Dany then kill her im unsure.

    Elia Martell: Yes, another Septa Lemore speculation

    No but his "little birds" are definitely still at King's Landing, and do you really believe Varys doesn't know what's going on at court? He still could be passing the information to Doran regardless if he's at the actual council meetings or not. Ya but a Septa in Essos really has no significance unless the specific Septa is of importance, which Tyene's mother really isn't besides her possible connection with (f)Aegon, that nobody should be privy too.

    Elia Martell: Yes, another Septa Lemore speculation

    I'm still under the assumption Septa Lemore is Tyene Snake's mother. We know she was a Septa and that Arianne, Tyene, and another Sand Snake went to visit her when they were young, at what age I'm unsure. Now Doran often refers to having a "friend at court", now that could easily have been Varys. Varys is the most likely to know where and how to get to Dany, and that's how Quentyn was able to make the journey to get to her, but Varys would also have cardinal knowledge of (f)Aegon. Now I believe (f)Aegon was a backup plan if Varys were to lose control of Dany, which it is seemingly more likely, as Dany refused to go back to Illyrio's palace. If Doran and Varys were working together for awhile it is highly likely that when Arianne and the snakes (good name for a band) went to visit Lemore, they were sent with a retainer, possibly with Yandry and Ysilla, and from there met up with Varys, (f)Aegon, and Lemore to carry out a plan. I believe that plan was to send Septa Lemore, Yandry, Ysilla, (f)Aegon, and the others across the narrow sea, meaning Doran knew about the plan from the start. As to why Septa Lemore would have to stay hidden I'm unsure, as a random Septa from Westeros probably wouldn't be likely noticeable in Essos. While the small details like when Septa Lemore met up with (f)Aegon may be loosely based, I still find it highly possible that Doran was part of Varys's (f)Aegon plan.
  22. Possible TWoW Spoiler This doesn't disprove anything Quentyn wasn't after Dany, he was after the dragons. This passage essentially puts to rest whatever life Tyene's mother still had as a candidate. Presumably, Septa Lemore has been with Aegon for several years, and Arianne was at least old enough at the time of her journey that she is able to remember details from it later. The fact that Arianne and the Sand Snakes had to cross the Mander suggests that Tyene's mother lives deep in the Reach, if not in the Westerlands. It's hard to imagine that sometime after Arianne's casual visit, this individual forsake her name and crossed the narrow sea to tutor one of the last Targaryens. This also doesn't disprove anything. It actually adds to the possibility of Lemore being Tyene's mother. Aegon "died" at 283 so let's say that's when Arianne and Tyene went to visit Lemore, that would make Arianne about 7, definitely old enough to remember the trip. It's very likely Doran sent them on that trip to retrieve fAegon from Varys, and sent Lemore away with him. Even if Lemore met up with Aegon later, that leaves plenty of time to make the trip to see Lemore. I also don't believe she did so willingly, Doran is manipulative and would be using Tyene as a hostage while Lemore fulfills this task. I'm not sold on Tyene's mother being Septa Lemore but I do think it's still a possibility and nothing I've seen posted can disprove it.
  23. I always figured Ashara is Septa Lemore, but now I'm starting to doubt it. I find it weird that Tyrion wouldn't note Lemore's eyes, considering if she was Ashara, it was one of the most notable things about her. I'm starting to think that Lemore could be Tyene Sand's mother and that Doran Is utilizing Tyene as a hostage to get Lemore to follow fAegon around, and set something up.
