    Why was Harrenhal built?

    I'm curious but how far does the end of the hypotenuse extend if you were to draw a line from the top of the wall out to the furthest point on the ground that you'd consider to be still "underneath the walls"? We definitely need dimensions which we don't have, but say you were 50m out from the wall, would you still be "underneath" or does the hypotenuse extend to only something like 5m from the wall?

    GRRM swears fealty to Tolkien in this ASOIAF Easter Egg

    Well said. There's a lot of hand waving to gloss over the fact that his stated pattern doesn't actually work. (My guess is that he didn't think anyone would have such a keen eye) To demonstrate the ridiculousness of this - If all you could do is hand-wave, I can state that there is a pattern of the titles of the series! A Game of Thrones A Clash of Kings A Storm of Swords A Feast for Crows A Dance with Dragons The Winds of Winter A Dream of Spring Looking at the bold letters we get "GRRM." It's not hard to make up something and say that it is how the author intended it with 100% certainty.
  3. Possibly moved to a different forum like Off-Topic or deleted. It was a joke and had no place on the forums. That's what I think.

    Silverwing and the Dying of the Dragons

    I suppose you're not familiar with the Dragon X gene theory or you're one of those types that just thinks everything is "magic" and has no other explanation.

    Silverwing and the Dying of the Dragons

    That's part of it. They lost some key members with the dragon gene, which is responsible for the connection to dragons and hatching. The knowledge was still there, but the ability was not.

    Favourite Voice from the ASOIAF Audiobooks

    I've never been able to get into audiobooks. What's the allure? Isn't it just one person reading the lines for 20 different characters?
  7. You claim that you can prove the origin of the White Walkers. Are you an insider? And why do your posts read like you got stuck in essay-writing mode and forgot where the off switch is?

    AA, PtwP, and The Dragon has Three Heads

    Oh, I was really biting my nails over what you meant by "we"!

    Name the Parents

    Is there no other point to this thread than picking names from a list? Since it seems like a game, this should be posted over at the Forum Games section: https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/forum/18-forum-games/
  10. It was a cursory search of people who have brought up the subject in the past, out of dozens of other potential threads. If I wanted, I could have listed out each one.
  11. I highly doubt that if this was something so integral to the story that GRRM wants to tell that he'd intentionally throw his life and career away by revealing it in a yet-to-be released book, but it is not groundbreaking to say that Hyrkoon the Hero, Yin Tar, Neferion, Azor Ahai, and Eldric Shadowchaser are the same person either. I would hope you'd have done your due diligence and make sure you're not taking credit for anyone else's theories though and at least give credit where it's due.

  12. I agree. Lot of grandstanding here from the OP who as a new member of the community, thinks he has stumbled upon something and wants to keep it secret so he can "take credit." or some other ill-conceived notion. Don't understand this dog-and-pony show to select people to "reveal it to" which if they're not signing an legally-binding NDA can just as easily post it themselves. As a discussion board, it makes more sense to make a thread and have people weigh the merits of the theory.
  13. Call me a skeptic but thousands of theories have been discussed to death over decades. What makes you think yours is not among them? If you're trying to link Azor Ahai theories, or find an origin, here would be a good place to start:

    As title says, the last one to post wins the game

    Wolfs Blood Traits?

    It is said that Jon has a bit of the wolf's blood. I forget where it's mentioned, but he seriously goes on some blood-crazed rampages whenever he's in harms way.

    Do you mind starting with your own list?

    Why do people dislike Stannis?

    People dislike him because he's Stannis the Mannis.

    Meereen and the Great Skahazadhan

    Your posting style is almost identical to the user Agent Orange. Are you both the same person? Case in point, though not as wordy:

    Defiance of Duskendale: Who else could have done it?

    What were these "atrocities after atrocities" that Aerys committed, not including the events leading up to the rebellion such as having Rickard burn while Brandon strangles himself to try to free him. Was he committing mass genocide or anything of the sort?
  20. Perhaps if we're looking for places where we don't know the full picture in the book as analogs to the King in Yellow, we can also include the origins of the White Walkers, where whores go, who is the 3EC, what happened between Ned and Ashara, and more. Those have certainly driven readers insane over the years.

    Claimants for Azor Ahai

    You forgot Loras and Davos Loras For Loras, he still has a part to play and is a potential Azor Ahai. If he did take Dragonstone and was doused in burning oil, it could be said that he has been reborn. I imagine that for a supposedly attractive male to be scarred deeply by burns would undergo a catharsis similar to that of Jaime’s redemption arc of finding that he’ll need to adapt himself to his new disfigured look. Of course, this is all second-hand knowledge and we only know what Cersei has been told. He could have taken Dragonstone in single combat and not been injured at all. Let’s leave it as maybe. Davos After the Battle of the Blackwater, it can be said that Davos was reborn amidst salt (the sea) and smoke (burning ships) when he’s found lying near death on a rock by Salladhor Saan. He also lost all of his sons in the battle.

    Is Tommen being poisoned?

    He’s just eating too much.

    They should have taken Rhaegar captive

    There are problems associated with taking him captive but I do agree it would have been better in a way. By taking Rhaegar captive, Aerys probably loses his shit and ignites the wildfire before Jaime knows what's going on. You're left with a wasteland that used to be King's Landing. However, by taking Rhaegar captive, you give yourself the opportunity to do a very public execution and solidify your reign. This is all just speculation though. Naturally, many events would play out differently.
