    Claimants for Azor Ahai

    So the whole drama of AA, the hook, the point of its creation, happened offscreen thousands of years ago to faceless characters. A good read that'd be.

    Dany's three treasons?

    Love will be her tricking Jon into bedding her. Blood will be Euron bedding/impregnating Arianne or otherwise hijacking Drogon. Gold will either be 1) Tyrion turning on her or 2) those responsible for turning Aegon against her and/or getting Rhaegal to Aegon.

    Claimants for Azor Ahai

    The creation of a AA/Nissa Nissa/TPTWP and the other names for the same thing has not yet occurred. When it happens you'll read about it in the series first hand, and if GRRM does his job as well as he'd like then your head will explode as the realisation sets in. That's the whole literary point of a central mystery like this is to bring it to fruition and blow the reader's mind. It isn't the point that people go looking for thin evidence of previous underwhelming events in the story to loosely tie it together. AA is coming at the very end of the story and will be brought about by events that are yet to happen.

    Could resurrected person produce an heir to Winterfell?

    Yes Jon will be able to have a child when he returns. He will have a bastard child, and maybe he will have a legitimate one too that becomes heir to WF. Probably not.

    Why do the direwolves hate Tyrion?

    That's what consistency is. There doesn't need be any more wiggle room than animal instinct, but he has it in the hereditary dragon blood features showing themselves randomly in bloodlines.

    Why do the direwolves hate Tyrion?

    Because instinctual animal reactions are not consistent in real life and so don't have to be in a book series. GRRM has a point to make with Tyrion that he doesn't with Aemon, Aemon won't be flying any dragons against Starks in battle.

    Why do the direwolves hate Tyrion?

    They sense his dragon blood, they don't like it. First Men and Andals, ice and fire, direwolf and dragon. Jon marching on Tyrion's IT will be the final political war of the series, he is their enemy.
  8. GRRM refers to Stannis as iron in AGOT before Noye's more elaborate quote, he always had Stannis pegged as iron. JC was probably just what he knew then as the linchpin of the Aegon storyline that expanded to include the BFs. Black iron dragon with jewels for eyes = Stannis = blue eyed king with no shadow. Roaring Griffin = JC = Mummer's dragon. Okay JC and Aegon are not the same person, but they are the same team, same faction, one of the big three baddies Dany is going to have to destroy and are interchangeable symbolically. Manticores = sphinxes = Euron = shadow fire breathing stone beast.
  9. No, why would you think on that path? His story is the Faith's in KL, as he is directly pointed. He will become High Septon.

    y does dany have the best bond with Drogon

    The point of the dreams is that her child brings about the dragon, that is why she is pregnant in the first and the dragon is wet and slick in her blood in both. She has reared it. It is the second life of not just Drogo but Rhaego too, and it comes at the cost of Rhaego's human life, only made possible by her coupling with Drogo. The first dream occurs before the wedding when she fears Drogo, thinking he is like Viserys but much stronger so he will be able to hurt her much more than Viserys. In that dream there is Viserys and then the dragon, and she fears both. The second dream occurs when she is pregnant by Drogo, Viserys isn't there and there is no longer any fear. She knows she is pregnant because of the dream. When she fears Drogo, the union by which she will make her dragon, she fears the dragon, when she no longer fears Drogo, she makes peace with the dragon. It is a telling of their relationship, and Drogo is represented by the dragon. As the dragon is coloured for and outright fucking named for him. Seriously, Drogo to Drogon, GRRM couldn't do anymore to make it obvious. And yeah yeah, modern day projection onto a girl who has always expected to marry by arrangement as every other girl in her whole existence. Meaningless. She was sad, she hated the Dothraki life, perfectly reasonable, but she never resented Drogo. We know this because GRRM took the time to make sure we know this, think why he might have gone out of his way to do that. Why it might be important.
  11. The point of the friendship may be that Dayne was an enabler, a forever honourable loyalist to follow Rhaegar down any wrong path. And Dayne's lofty stature might have given Rhaegar the fortitude to proceed, as how could what he is doing be wrong when Ser Arthur Dayne believes in him? In contrast I expect Jon will get a better friend, one who says "hey wait a second, this child sacrifice shit is fucked up and we should be stopping it". One like Sam.

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    He could sit out most of the TWoW and just re-emerge towards the end. But what's going to happen in his immediate return is pretty obvious. He takes the place of Stannis, kicks Ramsay's arse, reclaims Winterfell and becomes The King in the North. Ramsay with his dog pack to counter ghost and guttural fighting style to contrast Jon's castle taught skills exists to elevate Jon over his corpse. Winterfell exists for Jon to reclaim. The will floating about exists for Jon to become KITN. The North is his training ground, he's already had his mistake and failure, now it is for him to master.

    Opinions on Ghostwriters for remaining books

    lol no. This would all be pointless if it were any other writer.

    Rickon will ride unicorn into the battle

    Yeah perhaps was the intention at one point but after skipping the time skip he's too young for it. Maybe ride a unicorn around town.

    y does dany have the best bond with Drogon

    Drogon is Drogo's second life. Rhaego is also in there. That is two heads. Dany will join them, she is the third. The first topic in my signature is the best (and first) explanation you'll find for it all. Also worth pointing out Drogo is and will be Dany's true, first and only love. Dany is the alpha of the relationship, she is more khal and more dragon than him. The stockholm sydnrome narrative is nonsense projection.
