    How far south will the Others get?

    What if the dead bodies that were brought in the Castle Black were already wights, but well disciplined. They we pre-programmed to played dead, until they reached the other side of the Wall. Once inside, they stop playing dead and execute their mission of an assassination, or perhaps a kidnapping of someone very important to them. I don't think Dragonstone is best place from Dany to land. Dorne is a better choice after making their allegiance official. She and her dragons can work her way North on the map. The Others can work their way South on the map. And they all meet & clash in the middle of Westeros at the Trident.

    POLL: Will you continue to read the books if _________

    Well Jon died in the books. Are all the Jon Snow fanboys not going to buy TWOW when it comes out?

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    I read it. I gave it a chance. It is nicely written and presented, but doesn't make the theory true. There are way too many holes. So according to that theory: Howland used this pickup line on Ashara: Howland: "Hi Ashara! You are a Dayne from Dorne. Your family is looked down upon there. I am a Reed from the North. My family is looked down upon there too. We have something in common! Let's hook up!" Ashara: Okay! At TOJ ... with Ned, Howland & Sir Arthur Dayne left standing in the middle of the Combat: Sir Arthur Dayne with Dawn, alive with light: Who is Ashara's baby daddy??? Who?? Howland: Arthur, I am your niece's father. Arthur: Noo! That is not true! That is impossible!! Howland: Search your feelings, you know it to be true. Arthur: NOOOOOo! NOooo! Howland: Arthur, we can destroy Robert. We have foreseen this. This is your destiny. Join us and together as brother in-laws, we can see that Jon Targaryen will rule the Kingdom in the future! At Starfall: Ashara: "Howland, this is our 12-15 month old daughter Meera, we conceived her at Harrenhal" Howland: "Never mind that. We need to tell everyone that your daughter is stillborn, and you need to fake your death, and your brother Arthur's death too. ALL OF US needs to come with me and live in a swamp in the North!" Ashara: But why? Howland: To keep R+L=J a secret. No one can know Jon's origins! Ashara: Why do I have to fake my own death, but you don't have to fake yours? I don't even care about Jon. Jon is the bastard son of my friend's cheating husband. You want me to dishonor Elia's memories? Howland: Just listen to me!! Ashara: Fine, lets fake our deaths and move from our warm castle in Dorne to the North ... and not just any part of the North, but to a swamp ... with no castles. So should I pack my evening gowns for Greywater Watch? H+A=M&J theory does not address Barristan Selmy's comment of how "Ashara looked to Stark" H+A=M&J theory does not address why Meera & Jojen never once talked about their mother, who seems to be extremely important secret character H+A=M&J theory does not seem to have an overall purpose to the current story, other than keeping Ashara and Arthur alive Sorry I don't think I am betting $25,000 of my own money on Howland + Ashara=Meera & Jojen. I am not convinced. You are more than welcome to bet your own money on it.

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    Wow, I actually remembered this movie lol. So Howland will stand up for Ashara during some conflict, Howland gets his ass kicked, and the hot girl pities him & sleeps with him later??? That is a little disappointing if that actually happened at the feast of Harrenhal, and not because it is a little pathetic ... but its because this story would make more sense with Lyanna instead of Ashara. Lyanna & Robert argues, Howland steps in to defend pretty girl Lyanna. Howland gets punched in the face, and Lyanna pities Howland and they go to her tent and sleeps with him. Oh my God, did I just start the Howland + Lyanna = Jon theory??? I hope not, but it still sounds better than Howland + Ashara = Meera & Jojen

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    "and still have my posting privileges" ... you got a couple of warnings already? lol The Predictit-type website is an awesome idea! Let's call it the #TheoryPool, but we can use imaginary currency. Every member of this site will get some fantasy currency to start out. More experienced members can have a little more. All the moderators can have a couple of golden dragons. And people can bet their fantasy currency on theories, until it is officially revealed in TWOW or ADOS. For example: Lemore's identity: Ashara - Member#1 bets 500 copper pennies, Member#2 bets 2 silver stags Elia Martel - Member#3 bets 3 silver stags fAegon's non-famous mother - Member#4 bets 1,000 copper pennies, Moderator#1 bets 1 golden dragon No one important, just a regular Septa - Member#5 bets 4 silver stags, Moderator#2 bets 3 golden dragons If it turns out to be Elia Martel in TWOW, the winners divide up ALL the loser's money. There will be other Pools where members can bet their fantasy currency ... like Jon's Parentage? what happened at TOJ? or who is the author of the Pink Letter? Put up or shut up! Bragging rights belong to the winner with the most money won (for the members with a lot of starting money), and another winner with the highest percentage gain (for the common folks). Anyone down to play with the TheoryPool game?? ...might as well, TWOW ain't coming out any time soon!

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    It's long ... I'll give it a try when I have free time. I'm looking forward to see how the small cowardly guy got the hot girl at the party ... and the reason better not be "magic". GRRM writes real life situations, not fairy tales. Nice guys finish last.

    How far south will the Others get?

    I think wights are allowed through the Wall if they were invited in, or brought in intentionally by the Night's Watch .... you know... as a guest.

    How far south will the Others get?

    Remember, the story of the Rat Cook came from the Nightfort ... I am pretty sure we will hear his story again in the future, or something similar to it. I also remember reading a passage that foreshadowed an invasion there ... i just forgot where in the novels. It has to with the swelling of numbers, under the Wall, and a cook. I really should write my notes down. Yea Stannis is given the Nightfort ... but if he takes Winterfell, hes gonna be chilling there realistically.

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    "it is known" .....i didn't know Meera's mom is Ashara, I never heard that one before. How did one of the most beautiful woman in Westeros...with her infamous haunting violet eyes, from a noble family in the WARM climate of Dorne, hand maiden to the Princess Elia in a big castle, sister to the Sword of the Morning ... fall in love with a small cowardly man (who remained cowardly throughout the Tourney of Harrenhal) and be convinced to have sex with him ... giving birth to the bastard daughter Meera (who is Robb's age) in Starfall 9 months later after Harrenhal, AND BE CONVINCED TO FAKE HER OWN DEATH AND BABY MEERA's STILLBORN DEATH, even though she has no reason to fear for her life or be ashamed of raising a bastard in Dorne ... TO LIVE IN A SWAMP with the poor crannogmen under a secret identity? I would love to hear the explanation to all of this ... while disregarding Barristan Selmy's comment on how Ashara "looked to Stark" or how Meera/Jojen never spoke about their mother. Hell, IF the explanation to this "true-story" is convincing, I may even place a $25,000 bet of my own money that Ashara Dayne is Meera's mother, and Jojen is destined to be the new Sword of the Morning.

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    Woohoo! Bragging rights! It would be funny if people started betting $$$ on theories. For free, choosing which theories are right is easy. But betting $$$ on it, best believe a lot of people would back out. lol Person 1: "Septa Lemore is Ashara!!" Person 2: "Would you bet $1,000 on it?" Person 1: "Nevermind..."

    What does Stannis’ chapter reveal about the Pink Letter

    Let's review. Re-posting the Pink Letter for 9999th time in this forum: What Jon is thinking a few paragraphs later: Jon NEVER asked who REEK was. Isn't this an important detail? He doesn't know REEK = THEON. He probably assumed it was Arya the bride, like how Stannis assumed Reek = Bride in TWOW. Urgh! ... this sounds like a movie plot, but I can't remember which movie. It was some movie where the characters mistaken a name because they heard the conversation wrong. It affected the plot greatly with this miscommunication. It worked better in the movie because the audience can't read the actual dialogue. It's what their ears heard, not what their eyes read. Damn it. I have terrible memory. Someone help me identify this movie? lol Anyways ... for fun: "REEK" = ARya "JEynE" StarK Nice catch! And there are so many other clues in the letter suggesting that its not Ramsey's MO. Ramsey is like an artist, where are ALL his signature moves?

    How far south will the Others get?

    We have been reading these books for years. At some point the Others have to meet the Dragons. Dany is still in Essos, I can never see her reach that far north at Winterfell. I believe the North will be taken over. Words will spread and a lot the Northerners will flee south as refugees. Winterfell will be long gone. From the moment the Others attack the first Northern city, hopefully Westeros will stop fighting with itself and start mounting a defensive strategy. Hopefully Dany and her dragons will come to the continent in time. I think the most reasonable spot for the first major engagement is The Trident, in the middle of Westeros. The second will probably be the God's Eye. And it's only poetic if King's Landing got some action and the threat literally arrives to the steps of the Iron Throne. If the invasion is not contained at King's Landing, its over for Westeros.

    The Black Gate. What is the whole point of having a magical Aladdin type Cave of Wonders door if no magical beings can enter or exit it? Open sesame!

    What does Stannis’ chapter reveal about the Pink Letter

    Without a doubt this is a BIG clue. A major theme of the TWOW Theon chapter is name identity & name confusion. The biggest one is Arya & Jeyne. The second one is Reek & Theon. The chapter does the "name confusion" theme like 4-5 more times. The passage in question goes like this: We as readers are exposed to Reek = Theon for many chapters. BUT STANNIS HASN'T. If fact, Stannis is probably thinking Ramsey nicknamed Arya (the bride) "Reek." The Bride = Reek "Theon's laugh was half a titter, half a whimper." = GRRM laughing at us for falling for this trap Stannis has never acknowledged Theon as "Reek". If you don't believe me, re-read the chapter. The TWOW Chapter even ends with this: Now the juicy parts in ADWD ... does this confusion carry over to the Pink Letter? Can "the Bride" = "Reek" in the Pink Letter? If you guys re-read it with this formula, it still makes sense! I am not saying Stannis wrote the Pink Letter. He doesn't know about Mance & the spearwives anyways. I think Stannis sent an update on his situation to Selyse and Mel at the Wall. Melisandre, using this CV information, the Bride = Reek formula, and Mance & spearwives (Mel already knew) ... falsify the Pink Letter to get to Jon to talk to her. But Jon went to talk to everyone else instead. After re-reading ADWD Jon XIII, I am 95% sure Mel wrote it, and everything in the Pink Letter is false. After Jon gets the letter, he should have immediately went to Mel. He didn't. He was assassinated before he had a chance for Mel to confess to the pink letter, or at least put more thoughts in Jon's head. Also another reason why the Pink Letter is FALSE and that Mel wrote it ... SEVEN days of battle Someone like Mel probably associates the number SEVEN as "FALSE"! Mel got Jon killed unintentionally. But to be fair, Jon was also stupid. But Mel will bring him back.

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    @Platypus Rex aka "The Poll Guy" ... are you publicly and personally keeping track of these poll-votes so when TWOW or ADOS comes out, all the winners can rub their victories against the losers? Because that sounds like an awesome idea! Anyways my vote: No. Ashara is dead. I rather believe Septa Lemore has something to do with Dany's Lemon Tree in Braavos, than Lemore = Ashara. No purple eyes, no deal. Besides fAgeon is fake. The only small chance where Ashara = Lemore is if fAegon is the real deal, and he won't be.
