    Did he pass any fire within a Weirwood throne onto Catelyn?

    What we need is someone of real moral fibre telling us what to think.

    My version would have me selling you to Arya.

    I think Weirwoods and flames just don't work together.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Hindsight in 2020

    I thought Dr Sleep was the worst novel I've ever read.The antagonists were about as scary as an episode of Scooby Doo.

    The first instinct is to link these elements to magic.Doesn't work of course when it comes to iron and bronze. The truly oddball couplet in there is the ice and fire one.How can that relate to the Reeds or the Neck? A Hammer might work.

    The Myth of the Self-made Person

    I think we can concede he was a self made headless man.Not wishing to dilute your admiration of him, or Bowen Marsh in any way.

    There is a potential link in the KOTLT story.Bran envisions Howland as looking like Jojen but dressing like Meera.As in bronze scales and a rusted iron great helm. There are no references to Ser Shadrich wrt bronze and iron that I can find, as yet.We don't know how he dresses or about his sword. We do have some info about his shield and sigil which lead us to make comparisons with the KOTL shield. White and red. Laughing and mad.No real associations with any known family or any particular place. Both connected to ice and fire and thus to the old gods. So we have two thirds of the Reed oath portrayed in Ser Shadrich's shield.If we had them all it really would be a closed case and the author has this annoying habit of withholding crucial information. The associations are 5 from 6 really.We just lack iron/bronze references from Ser Shadrich so far.

    Agreed.As said in Catelyn's pov iron and bronze are good colours to ward against the cold. Just haven't seen it yet with Ser Shadrich. Hell, I'm even playing with his partners in crime Ser Byron= iron.Morgarth = ? But it just does not work.My operational stance is that Shadrich may be Howland or maybe not.Having fun wondering what he's up to if he is.

    Two of three I would suggest.Bendy brown and blue for earth and water. A white mouse with red eyes for ice and fire. I haven't seen any bronze or iron references yet with Shadrich.

    What’s your favourite ship?

    Bit of an odd name for a ship... Though Iain Banks might well have used it. Sigh.

    You don't want a new career as an agony aunt? Me neither. Returning to recent subject matters, what Bran saw up north in his coma dream, I tend to side with Corbon on this. I'm prepared to let the mystery be. And that's not saying I don't think the matter merits analysis, it does and I welcome and enjoy it. I just think we don't have enough data points to mount a defining theory. My personal interpretation is that the horror Bran saw was a metaphor for the concept of the sacrificial offering of life. The bodies impaled on spikes of ice were just that ,their souls are now the Others. The lives sacrificed were offered to stay the advance of the First Men. Perhaps what Bran saw was proof that the Starks or he himself were responsible for this?
