    R+L=J v.166

    There are thousands of posts across the internet that use this SSM as "proof" that Jon's parentage is the central mystery of the entire ASOIAF books. Yet it isn't even a quote from George RR Martin. It is the word of a fan that is recapping what he claims GRRM said...and obviously Howland "knowing too much about the central mystery" isn't in itself an indication of what that mystery is.

    iBook Author annotations?

    It really doesn't seem to leave Ned much time. He arrives at King's Landing some amount of time after the Sack. He has to do whatever he did between there and lifting the Siege of Storm's End, which would take him awhile to get to. Then it would probably be pretty weird if he went straight to Lyanna. Since if he already knew where she was he'd more likely tell Robert to have Varys lift the Siege for all he cared. Jon being born shortly after the Sack (at best) leaves Ned with very little time to get to Lyanna (wherever she was) in time for her to be laying in a bed of blood from birthing Jon.

    Too early to be the TOJ baby.

    iBook Author annotations?

    Thank you! It seems I need to find a good timeline. I was thinking this would have had Jon being born 3+ months too early. Makes me wonder where Ned was around the time of Dany's birth.

    iBook Author annotations?

    I was wondering what everyone thinks about GRRM's author annotations that appear in the iBook version of the books? Has George himself ever addressed whether they are meant to be taken as fact or not? There's an author annotation in ADWD that says Jon was born sometime around or shortly after the Sack of King's Landing. Which seems pretty early to me...

    If you watched both videos, I'm confused to why you think they eliminated the possibility of the Pink Letter originating at Castle Black?

    Thank you. Did you watch the 2nd video?

    Ok so I've seen a few theories from Order of the Green Hand I'd like to get everyone's opinions on. But I just saw the one I'd like to start off with. Who wrote the Pink Letter? The answer is one I don't recall hearing before. There are 2 videos.

    I'm almost done with ADWD on this re-read. Just when I thought I was free, I get drawn back into ASOIAF theories (currently Order of the Green Hand videos) and I feel like I'm going to end up closing ADWD and picking up AGOT instead of a different series. That's one of the genuises of GRRM. No matter how many times I read the books I always end up feeling like there's more to discover.

    Will do! This virus might actually go long enough to delay even if he finishes. I do believe he planned last year to be done in time to publish this Summer. Though it wouldn't be too much longer to wait for a more fitting December release.

    Has anyone heard of the YouTube channel Order of the Greenhand? I just now started watching their videos, and they are definitely interesting.

    The same to you! I'm hoping everyone shows up for TWOW theory crafting. Though I'll be absent long enough to read the book first.

    If this quarantine lasted 2 years we'd have TWOW and books 7-9 plus at least Book 1 of the sequel series.

    Now THIS is interesting! I can't think of anyone Bran would try to bring back before Ned. I suddenly have the urge to read Heart of Darkness.
