  1. My guess is that Ice was made by some valyrian smiths in Valyria and pretty sure that magic was used in forging. It was, probably, one of last weapon orders made by masters of valyrian steel before the doom, considering the timeline.
  2. I''m always been thinking that they were pretty important : they have the same genes as a Bloodraven, so they or their decedants could have become a greenseers. (Before anyone tell me that only 1/1000000 can become a greenseer, look at the Starks - all Eddard's kids + Jon Snow are skinchangers, and it's really isn't 1*/1000 what we were told).
  3. Those things I just don't see happening : 1. A Dream of Spring ever being finished by George Martin. 2. Dany becoming a likeable or interesting character. 3. Sam Tarly becoming a second Neville Longbottom. 4. Ashara Dayne being dead.
  4. Guys, do we know what happened to Gwenys and Mya Rivers? I doubd that Brynden would do to them, his sisters, the same thing he done with Alysanne, Lily, Willow and Rosey. Also, considering that Gwenys and Mya were noble origin and have been legitimized, they become Targaryens, so their value for the crown was increased.
  5. There is one small thing I would like to change : no shipwreck of Steffon's and Cassana's ship, so they returned to Storm's End safe and alive. This tiny change will make a huge difference. Steffon, as closest and most trusted Aerys's friend will help keep him in check and will balance his relationship with Tywin, so they will not fell out after Defiance of Duskendale, which also mean that marriage of Rhaegar with Cersei probably would have happened and Jaime wouldn't summoned to the Kingsguard, if there will be no reason for Aerys to spite Tywin. All those variables will shift the whole plot of the ASoIaF : Cersei will have at least three Rhaegar's children (his three heads), so he wouldn't have a justification to run away with younger girl, while hiding behind his silly prophecy; Jaime probably will be married to Lysa Tully (or some daughter of Tywin's vassal. Because there also a likely scenario where Lysa are married to Elbert Arryn, heir of Jon Arryn, which is make her less bitter or crazy). Okay, I think it's possible that there will be a secret romance between Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, even few potential bastards are plausible. Still, it will not effect particular scenario, considering that the kids will probably will look like Lyanna - "the seed is strong". Everybody is alive, everything is fine and everyone is happy. Drago-lion Aegon, with the help of Tywin, will easily defeat the Others and Westeros will enter in the new age of stability and prosperity.
  6. My ex-girlfriend used to call that my member, but now I know that she did it in very sarcastic manner. Oh, you asking about the books? Well, it's probably has something to do with already mentioned by Melisandre stone dragon, which is supposedly has to come to life. Perhaps, after the sacrifice of Shireen, who has a greyscale, result with be that a "Great Stone Beast".
  7. If he was just a second son of a lord, his options would have been limited, but as a lord of Dragonstone himself and brother of a king (even his heir for years ), he can have a pick. Problem arrise when it's turns out that there were not a lot of available brides : Most powerfull Reach houses are mostly intermarry between themself. Although, there is Malora Hightower... What? She is from powerful and ancient family, not to mention that Stannis likes crazy girls. Dorne, for obvious reasons, is out. Riverlands... Freys, maybe? Rich and powerful, plus they have a lot of brides to choose from. Even Lannisters gave their own bride to one of them. Crownlands. Lollys Stokeworth, match made in heaven. At least she would give Stannis a few heirs. Also, she isn't more unattractive or stupier then Selyse. Westerlands. Not sure anyone would want to increase influence of Lannisters on the royal family. North. After a war there was a lot of widows, so there is a lot of options. But I can't remember even one. Iron Islands. Hmm. Vale. Maybe one of the nieces of Jon Arryn, which were still available. Perhaps even a widow of Denys Arryn, if she was alive at that point. Stormlands. Probably should have been a priority, Any lord from there would gradly give his daughter for a Baratheon.
  8. That's exactly the point : Jon Snow is also presumed dead and black brothers serving in the Night's Watch till death. So if Melisandre will resurect Jon later on, there will be no more questions to him.
  9. As we know from the Cersei's prophecy : "Gold will be their crowns, and gold their shrouds", which means that after the Tommen's death, Myrcella will be a queen for some time. If Tommen dies, Margaery will become a widow for a third time and quit being a queen, so Tyrells would no longer have a motivation to support the Lanninsters-on-the-throne, and possible Tyrells's proposition to marry Myrcella to Willas will be rejected by Cersei outright. So, in this time period, where the Reach has a massive problems with the Euron's ironborn, it's possible for Mace to allied himself to Aegon's faction. That's where proposal to marry Margaery will came up, and I agree that it will be wisely rejected by JonCon or Aegon. Maybe Laswell Peake? By the way. Maybe Cersei will try relive her own the past at the expense of her daughter, by proposing Myrcella to Aegon? After all, Cersei was fixated on the Rhaegar her whole life. I'm pretty sure that if it's you (or me) who come up against infectious-humanoid-stone-grey-monsters, we would just simply shit our pants. To fight a first real battle against a group of stone men, terribly unfortunate.
  10. I don't agree with that part. If Tyrell's alliance with Lannisters will crumble, for example if Tommen dies or Tyrells will finaly get fed up with Cersei, they would likely try to secure union with new rising power - Aegon. Only way they can do that, is by marriage. So, Margaery is still in the game. Still, I would personally prefer Sansa for Aegon.
  11. Well, there a lot of problems with those theories. First of all, Mace Tyrell is married and has children with Alerie Hightower, the daughter of Lord Leyton Hightower, so wherever side Hightowers will pick out is solely depends on the Tyrells. So there is no allusion on the first Dance of Dragons. Secondly, as I mentioned, there is no logical way for JonCon and Egg to get quickly the Oldtown or, more importantly, to defeat ironborn on the sea. "Friends from the Reach" can't be many house. So it's probably a Peake, who have living relatives in the GK, or, if those relatives claiming lost titles, friends could be Rowans or Caswells. Last house is interesting because it has unpleasant history with Rolly Duckfield. If Arianne decides that Aegon is probably real, then she wouldn't see a point in marrying her first cousin. If she decides that he's a fake... Well, marriage with adventurer with unknown origin is quite dumb, and Arianne isn't stupid.
  12. If you implying that Aegon and Co will save the day by retaking/protecting Oldtown from Euron and get famous doing so, then I don't know how it's even possible. Even if "dark horse" Aurane Waters will decide to pick a new patron and join his fleet to Aegon's forces, ten ships, even large dromonds, are not nearly enough to beat Euron's fleet which will certainly smash Paxter's. By the way, guys, Gerold Dayne definitely will join Aegon and, probably, will become a member of his Kingsguard. Not only it will be symbolic - Dayne (maybe with stolen sword Dawn) in the kingsguard, but also the most logical development for the character of the Darkstar : after becoming an outlaw in Dorne his only option is to leave it. And the closest possible destination for him is a rising power Aegon, who currently is in the war with Lannisters. P.S. If Aegon is half Dayne, by some theory, Gerold's joining to the Young Griff would make a lot of sense.
  13. I been thinking about a possibility of "evil" Dany even before TV Show came out. Just think about : Aegon will definitely take control of the Stormlands and, I think, will get the King's Landing without a fight, considering that he heard about "a cloth dragon swayed on poles amidst a cheering crowd, which probably means that by the time Aegon will get there, city will be happy to see "son of Rhaegar" saving them from wherever. Such enthusiasm of citizens will be probably a result on 33% of Varys's work, 34% of Cersei's f*ck up's and the rest 33% of High Sparrow's blessings, to which Tyene Sand and Aegon's personality contribute a lot. By that time. by my speculations, Tommen would die. Tyrrells will join Aegon : mysterious "friends from the Reach" will push Mace to Egg and Ko after the Tyrells would lose interest in alliance with the Lannisters and due to increased threat of Eurone (He will crush the fleet of Paxter Redwyne, info is 100% correct). When Daenerys will get to Westeros with her forces, which would consist mostly of Victarion ironborn fleet, Unsullied and dothrakis (she will take control of, at the very minimum, whole Jhaqo's khalasar ( *dothraki by culture are nomadic riders, so when they see Daenerys on top of Drogon, they will start to worship her as some kinds of goddess), Aegon would control at least half of the 7Kingdoms, including the capital - King's Landing. So, by the time of the "Dance", for most people of Westeros images of the "dancers" will be clear, on one side Golden Company, knights, lords, church and military orders, and on other : terrible dragons, war eunuchs, wild savages and ironborns... You can probably guess for whom they would be rooting for and who will look like a hero, and who like a villain.
  14. I really don't think that Rhaegar cared about the spare, but he really believed about the prophecy of the Prince That Was Promised, which he, for some reason, connected with Tarq's saying "dragon has three heads". Daemon Blackfyre was a bastard, but still more dragon that the most of Targaryens. In any way, Aegon (YG), probably isn't a "the Prince" from the prophecy, but still can be one of the hear. On other hand : if Dragon has three heads, how many heads would have two dragons?
  15. Thank you for the answer. I seriously never thought about it. Now I curious how they decide who will give up her/his claim. Ryon Allyrion never mentioned having any siblings and could as well be the only child. On the other hand, Ynys brother Cletus Yronwood has died during the journey with Quentyn Martell, and little Gwyneth can and likely is a secret bastard, if we take into consideration that she is the only in her family of stony dornishmans, who have a very sandy dornish looks. Hey, maybe even Ryon Allyrion is her real father, who already fathered a bastard - Daemon. Well, it's my small speculation. Anyway, house Yronwood is much more powerful than house Allyrion, so maybe it's that's how they decide? And what about second question about Sylva?
  16. I never stoped wondering about this: in Dorne, which has absolute primogeniture, If Ryon Allyrion, heir of Delonne Allyrion and house Allyrion, married Ynyn Yronwood, eldest child and heir of house Yronwood, and they had two children. So, which house absorbs which? Other question : Sylva Santagar, the heir of Symon Santagar, was married to lord Eldon Estermont, from the Stormlands. Does it means that if they would have a child together, all titles and lands of the house Santagar will move to a house Estermont and, therefore, to the Stormlands?
  17. Lord Varys. He cares about realms, have necessary experience and expertise to became a great rules. He always reminded me Cardinal Richelieu : pulling the strings from the shadow, making the right decisions for the weak ruler. With Illyrio, as master of coin, they could have archived a new golden age for Westeros.
  18. Well, I didn't tell that my theory is the most possible, just one logical and original proposition which could can tie several other popular theories + give cheap drama for the plot. Just imagine possible future confrontation of the two bastards : Aegon and Jon, it can be called ... "Battle of the bastards" . Just kidding. Still, my theory has a lot of problems, I acknowledging that. I see no visible motives for Varys and Illyrio to help out Ashara and Aegon. Although, I can see why Illyrio wouldn't send his, possible, only son on extremely dangerous quest of conquering foreign throne, while believing to be someone who he is not. Aegon, probably, would have been more happy and safe as Illyrio's heir and future magister, a not adventurer. I think that way. Regarding H + A = M & J : well, it's possible, strangest things happened in the published books. I still can't get over over massive retcone and changes which happened in the "the Cursed child", and became a canon. Anyway, in my opinion this theory looks like more like fanservice, rather anything else, just like in many fanfictions where "shy introvert" Eddard, somehow, ended up with the "hot girl" Ashara and all for love. In the situations with (in)possible romance of short-guy-who-can't-defend-himself Howland Reed it looks even more unbelievable. Even if they, somehow, had sex and Ashara got pregnant, she 100% would used moon tea. Well, it's my opinion. Maybe in the Winds of Winter will turn out that they were secretly married all along, but I don't think so.
  19. Quite unlikely. We really don't know if that what happened. As a greenseer he could have tell anyone in NW what happened to him. At the very least, he could have directed and led the dogs from the search party to his location He most likely, during his work as a Lord Commander, seen some disturbing visions or received some messages from the Children of the forest, which convinced him to simulate death and join them in the cave afterwards.. Maybe he just thought that he can make himself more useful while working with Cotf. Who knows? Anyway, he quite a boring character in the main series ASoIaF, because all his role in the books is to be your typical archetype of a mentor for Bran. I bet my full collections of book series "MythAdventures" of Robert Asprin, that Bloodraven will "heroically" sacrifice himself, after he teach, more or less, his student, which would fully complete his archetype.
  20. Basically, Rhaegar are a father to both Aegon from Ashara and Jon from Lyanna. To father a child from Ashara was proposed by Elia, just to avoid situations like that idiocy which happened with Lyanna. It's explains why Ashara faked her death and disappeared, it also creates an intrigue in the possible future books. Well, Tyrion looked not in the eyes of Lemora. Secondly, if author wrote about Lemora having a purple eyes, there wouldn't be a mystery of Lemora's real identity. So far we only know that she's pretty, has a dark hair and gave birth at some point. Suspiciously enough, Ashara was mentioned several times by Barristan in the same book. And if she is dead, what point for the author to add to the books Barristan's unrequited love for Ashara? It's all looks kinda fishy from the perspective of the plot. Why would Ashara fake her death or committed suicide for real, if she had alive child which wasn't in danger? Also, to legitimize a bastard can only a king and Robert probably didn’t do that for Meera , which means that she wasn't a bastard. P.S.. Whole theory about a secret romance of Ashara and Howland don't really have any evidence yet and there wasn't any sort of an indication about mutual attraction between them, the same goes for Eddard Stark and Ashara.
  21. Technically yes.. Brynden Rivers "Bloodraven" was Lord Commander in 239 AC., While he wasn't mentioned as a deserter, he certainly isn't dead and left the Night's Watch for the lands beyond the Wall.
  22. Illyrio and Varys on the same page wherever their plan is. We don't have evidence which suggests otherwise. Also, I don't think that there a lot of Blackfyres out there : Lysono Maar is a quite suspicious character, but so almost all the new ones in the books. It is probable, that Aegon a Blackfyre, but not a fact. If he was a Black Dragon, he would be under care of Golden Company, Anyway, there also a big question : how Aegon would prove to a captains of GC that he is a Blackfyre, considering the fact that he grew up outside of the mercenaries? It's the same thing with proving that he is a son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell. Funny would be is Varys/Illyrio sold GC that Aegon is a Blackfyre, to 7K they sold that he's a son of Rhaegar and Elia, and in truth, Aegon is a Brightflame.
  23. Good time of the day, everyone. I want to present you, guys, my own logical and promising for the plot theory, which connects several other popular theories, about the origin of Young Griff and and I’m very interested to hear your opinion on this matter. First at all, sorry for my bad grammar, english isn't my first or even second language. What if Aegon are indeed a son of Rhaegar, but just not Elia? I know, I know, it's sounds ridiculous and I should probably die while eathing my own shit, but hear me out : every Targaryen has some kind of madness and obsesion, even Aegon " the Unlikely" brought his whole family together and then burned almost all of them to hell. And if Rhaegar was obsessed with the prophecy and Elia, a smart woman, knew that this a big problem and the trouble is brewing. While she was unable to had the third child with him, she had a plan how to give it to him and the dialogue. from Dany's vision, really happened : Rhaegar: Aegon. What better name for a king? Elia: Will you make a song for him? Rhaegar: He has a song. He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire. There must be one more. The dragon has three heads... But I just can't believe that Elia, wise and experienced woman would agree on Rhaegar's "kidnapping" of Lyanna Stark, daughter of Lord Paramount, which was engaged to other Lord Paramount no less. It's just sounds like the worst and dumbest idea ever. But what if Elia already agreed on Rhaegar's bastard, so he could got his third head. from someone she could trust .... Ashara Dayne. Ashara was lady-in-waiting and the friend of Elia, unmaried, come from very ancient and noble house, have some valyrian look, and just a perfect beauty, The fact that she also a sister of his best friend Arthur don't hurt. Also, in Dorne people have more benevolent attitude towards the bastards. So, Rhaegar agreed to a suggestion, did the deed, which made him the very person who "dishonored" her in the Harrenhal. and then, for some reason, get the cold feet or, what is more likely, for some reason decided that Lyanna is better suited for the role of the mother for the third dragon head, or maybe even for the role of Aegon himself, and he run way with her. All all this led to war, deaths, well... Robert's rebellion. Pregnant Ashara managed to hide in Dorne and remained there until the very end of the war, util she was visited by Eddard Stark. After that, staying in Dorne wasn't safe for her or the child, telling the rest of Martells wouldn't do anything good (it's Rhaegar child, but not Elia's), so she decided to stage her death and disappear in the Free Cities, where she was discovered by Varys and Illyrio. Together, they cooked up all this plan with the replacement and survival of Aegon, and gave Ashara role by educating him in the subject of the faith under the name of septa Lemore, so she could always be near him... I can't tell what Varys and Illyrio get out this or why they interested in the son of Rhaegar and Ashara, but I can say that mine theory ties many other, is something no one expects and, also, give very nice drama and conflict in the future books, when Barristan Selmy learns that Ashara alive and has a son. He would have to decide on which side he on (I'm always was curious why Varys gave Barristan to Dany and not to Aegon. Maybe he knew that with Ashara, he could make him to switch side any moment. It's possible considering how many times in Barristan's POV he mentioned Ashara). All of this doesn't mean I think my theory is the most probable or the other theories are impossible, not at all. For example, one time I did't believe that Aegon (Young Griff) can be possible be a Blackfyre, because I just couldn't see how the Golden Company could have left out of radar a member of house Blackfyre, let alone two. Even in case where all what was left from the dynasty is a girl, she 100% would have been married to some member of houses Peake or Strickland and not putted in Lysene pillow house. So, that way I thought that Aegon could only be eather real son of Rhaegar and Elia, or, which was more possible, some great grandson of Aerion Targaryen, grandson of his son Maegor. After all, there was Bright flame in Deny's prophecy. Anyway, by learning some English history, when King Richard II Plantagenet, in order to secure his position, in 1397 accused of treason and executed his uncle Thomas of Woodstock, 1st Duke of Gloucester, one of the last of Plantagenets at the time besides himself. It's didn't helped and Richard was deposed two years and died in captivity the next year after that, probably murdered. And so House of Lancaster take the throne. 55 years later the War of Roses starts... What am I all leading with all of this? Maelys the Monstrous could have, after the killing his cousin Daemon IV. in order to take control of the Golden Company, sell in to the slavery Daemon's possible children (In Lys, for example), so he wouldn't have to worry about possible revolt from some GC members. Which maybe was logical start of the stories of Varys and Serra... The end. Thank you for reading and your time. Be safe and stay healthy. ,
