    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.

    So you want a proven world class part time midfielder?

    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?

    If Ned+Ashara= Jon, was Jon unwanted in Dorne?

    Ned just lied here.He told Robert his bastard's mother was named Wylla. He lied because he has promised to keep.

    Hot topic.I rarely post in these kinds of threads because I see RLJ as a given. As a casual observer though it's fascinating the many ways you all diminish actual text when it's in your favour to do so!

    Craziest Theories

    A weirwood grove on Mars spontaneously ejected itself to the extent that it exited that planet's gravity intact, flew through outer space, was then crash landed on Planetos.

    1917 film (spoilers)

    The moment the footage changed from old WW1 footage to the remastered footage was a real holy shit moment for me. Looking forward to this.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Those aren't pillows!

    Thought it was fantastic and Pryce deserves his best actor nominations.Hope he wins at least one of them. Just started The Outsider.Paddy Considine can do it all seemingly..

    Nothing to do with symbolism which I do recognize where I find it.It backs up,colours , embroiders, reinforces the narrative. I don't recognize time loop theory, using Arya's story to try to figure out Howland.So Mycah has freckles ergo Howland must be a cripple? Really?

    That's not making a whole pile of sense.

    Have you considered reading the story as a story?

    Enjoy.It goes very well.

    The red hair is interesting.We don't know what colour Howland's hair is.Maybe he dyes it from brown to red. Interesting if he's protecting a girl who's changing it from red to brown. Aside from that, I don't see that we are connected on this front.

    Dracula: Claes of the Beast (BBC/Netflix)

    I'm trying to watch The Square, but as usual Netflix have made the subtitles unreadable.Can't they just put them in a black box? Has it occurred to anyone at Netflix?

    He is short and wiry with a shock of red hair. He says he is no tourney knight but has the sort of casual arrogance that shows he has skill at arms. He claims to have been financially ruined at the Blackwater by ransom, yet he rides a chestnut courser, an expensive war horse. The same kind of horse ridden by Sansa at times. His sigil bears similarities to the knight of the laughing tree, but here the white tree with the red eyes is replaced by a large white mouse with red eyes. One is laughing, one is "mad". Both suggestive of mockery/deceit. Both suggestive of old gods. "We swear it by ice and fire." The background is bendy brown and blue for the lands and rivers he's crossed. Meera describes her father as able to breathe mud. He could change earth to water and water to earth with no more than a whispered word. "We swear it by earth and water." This is a live candidate for Howland Reed. I hope it is. Rather than a grand entrance stage left waving an affey davey, I'd prefer he snuck in under the radar without most noticing.

    Tenuous to say the least.

    How do we know he's connected to Harrenhal?

    Favorite characters

    Mance 1-10. No one else is casually strumming a lute on the Bolton's dais.If you don't think that's cool you haven't really been paying attention.

    The Stannis Plan and why he wrote the Pink Letter 2.0

    I think the best way of addressing this is as a meta analysis-"what the hell is Mance doing?" He's non POV so we have to go by what he does and what he says.That and several carefully placed lacunas that the author has decided to omit from his narrative. I think the PL and the HM both fall within his story and motivation.
