    Well I mean, you can tell what I wrote. Lol.

    Tinfoil: Rhaegar used Harrenhal tourney to essentially convene a secret Great Council. His plan was to I... can't figure out how to fix it from my phone and I don't have access to a computer. My apologies. I'm just not familiar with how to edit this forums posts and it inserted my own text into a quote for seemingly no reason.

    Will you please share this outcome with us, George(Black Crow)?

    I certainly would have smiled and held my tongue, as George did, if they had guessed Ashara and it was correct!

    To the points of keeping it grounded and not being confused by the Mummer's version: I know you're stating your opinion, but it is speculation that GRRM confirmed the mother. It isn't Book Canon yet, regardless of what the Mummer's said or did. There's room for his mother to be someone else. Even though this girl that we are both mind-meld thinking about can't even be proven to have been pregnant... I agree the main focus should be on figuring out the father as that's the bigger mystery. There's zero Book Canon that I'm aware of that points to Jon wanting to be King of Westeros and the only Book Canon from Jon's chapters I can find that even possibly points to Targaryen or anything outside of the Ice side of the story is this: For context, this is from AGOT Jon V. Jon and Co had just been promoted into the Watch, but not yet given duties. Jon is wrestling with saying the NW vows and committing to life at the Wall, or returning to Arya, Robb and his family in Winterfell. Free of consequences as he hadn't said his vows yet.

    How does Young Griff get a dragon in this scenario?

    Show Rhaegar must have been trying to one up his ancestors. I'm the father of TWO Aegons!

    I'd just like to point out that GRRM never confirms Lyanna is Jon's mother in Book Canon. We have this from D&D: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-game-of-thrones-writers-had-to-answer-this-trick-question-2015-4 This from GRRM: All this confirms is that GRRM asked D&D who Jon's mother was and they gave the correct answer. This does not mean that it confirms Lyanna as book canon as Jon's mother, it doesn't even mention her name. Do we need to list all the known differences between the show and the books? Just because Lyanna is Jon's mother in the Show, doesn't mean it is 100% certain she will be in the Book. It also doesn't confirm RLJ. The father is never mentioned, neither is Rhaegar's name. I felt the need to point these two facts out as it seems most people all over the internet mistakenly take it for granted that GRRM both confirmed Lyanna as Jon's mother and confirmed RLJ. Neither is true. Regardless of the theory, ASOIAF theory crafters should do their best to base their theories as solidly in Book Canon as possible. Otherwise all they're doing is putting duct tape on a snowman.

    That's Book 5 though. Book 1 was written at a much faster pace as it was started as 1/3 books. Book 5 is part of the messy aftermath of abandoning the 5 year gap and your example depicts Stannis's hellish slow march through a blizzard to Winterfell. Asha spends 18 days thinking they are 3 days distance from Winterfell.

    It's simply GRRM allowing the reader to track the passage of time. Which was at a much faster pace in Book 1. He at least started it thinking it was 1/3 of the series.

    Maybe Rhaegar hid the real Elia, Aegon and Rhaenys. The one's killed in King's Landing were look alikes.

    How would that be a clue about time loops? It seems to be, at best, a clue that characters make mistakes. It could also be that that chapter is a few months off compared to other POVs at the time.

    It seems I need to go back and read all the old Heresy threads!
