  1. Although I doubt we will see any action take place directly in Sothoryos (I would love if it did), more info is not necessarily out of the question. Love the nugget from Fire and Blood. Perhaps it will all come back together with Elissa Farman, Marwyn, Tygett (maybe wrong Lannister bro), Quaithe etc. all having some level of intertwining going on by the end of ADOS. Maybe Dany goes east and all that prophecy comes true. Makes me wonder. Assuming that GRRM ever finishes TWOW we might kinda sorta find out!
  2. So I am re-reading and just finished Aerons chapter where Euron makes his successful Kingsmoot speech. Aeron goes on about how when all the Ironborn were arriving some of the lords were knights and traveled with maesters and septons in their entourages, and others arrived with salt waves and thralls. I wonder what the mix is between the houses of the Iron Islands and how much sway those lords that keep maesters & observe mainland traditions hold over the Iron Islands as a whole? The way Aeron talked about it they might be sneered at by Drowned God believers, but they seem to be pretty much accepted right? Balon Greyjoy must have been okay with them or at least tolerated their presence despite the return to the “old way” and paying the iron price etc. Rodrik Harlaw has a maester and he is lord of the richest island - can that be used to make the same assumption for other islands? If they were under crown rule from KL since the conquest, were those lords who embraced mainland ways were more prosperous than those who got their riches from reaving? How much reaving went on before Balon’s rebellion anyway? There is such a stark contrast between the Ironborn and the rest of Westerosi culture I find it so surprising and interesting these hybrid situations exist. I trailed off there at the end but what does everyone think about the status/power held by the maester keeping lords? Would love to hear people’s opinions regarding mainland cultural aspects within the Iron Isles in general.
  3. The Iron Islands are reminiscent of the Kingdom of the Isles - in as much as they were dependent on raiding, later trade. An island provides security but also isolation, a double edged sword.
  4. Rereading ASOS and came across this gem. Made me LOL. I’m sure there is a thread for this but I couldn’t find it... Jaime, regarding Ser Cleos Frey: It’s funnier in its whole context... Anyone else got any good ones? Funny, sad and anything else - all quotes are welcome!
  5. Plus, Cat is all about that duty. A Clash of Kings - Catelyn VI When the last of Edmure's foot had shuffled under the portcullis, Brienne asked, "What shall we do now, my lady?" "Our duty." Catelyn's face was drawn as she started across the yard. I have always done my duty, she thought. Perhaps that was why her lord father had always cherished her best of all his children. Her two older brothers had both died in infancy, so she had been son as well as daughter to Lord Hoster until Edmure was born. Then her mother had died and her father had told her that she must be the lady of Riverrun now, and she had done that too. And when Lord Hoster promised her to Brandon Stark, she had thanked him for making her such a splendid match. I gave Brandon my favor to wear, and never comforted Petyr once after he was wounded, nor bid him farewell when Father sent him off. And when Brandon was murdered and Father told me I must wed his brother, I did so gladly, though I never saw Ned's face until our wedding day. I gave my maidenhood to this solemn stranger and sent him off to his war and his king and the woman who bore him his bastard, because I always did my duty.
  6. I love reading different theories. No matter how reynoldswrappy they may be.
  7. On restricting rations - I would think that it would retard the growth of the dragon for sure.
