    Lady Hornwood's last meal? Me thinks not...

    Yes, I believe you are right. Probably resisting Ramsay in his intention to take over the Hornwood lands she was probably tortured and flayed. Leading to her eating her fingers. A better story to be told when people asked/saw Lady Hornwoods body and her fingers.

    There's Something about Leaf

    Great catch, interesting to read.

    the honeyed locusts...

    I like the theory, let me offer another possibility Hizdahr is the target. He provided the locusts and he is from Mereen makes perfect sense that he should either like locusts or feel obliged to eat some since they where his. Kill Hizdahr, increase Danearys distrust/hate of the harpy. This would create war between Danearys and the harpy families and Danearys might look for a new husband to help her deal with the harpy. Who would gain? The commander of the Brazen Beasts. The shavepate. He knows Danearys doesn't eat Mereen delicates.

    The Others "inside" man

    He did a lot of damage to the Starks true. But got no connection to blue/ice and magic. Varys got both. Varys is lying about his intention for Aegon, probably just using Illyrio and his money. Little Littlefinger is lying about everything for the purpose of thriving on chaos. Please provide facts/quotes from the books connecting Petyr to the Others.

    The Others "inside" man

    You need to provide facts/quotes from the books to back your claim up. From the conversation between illyrio and Varys in games. We hear them speak about setting the wolf's and the lions on each other. This makes the riverlands the war zone. Aegon land in the stormlands. So the most logical to ease Aegons landing would be to set Highgarden against Storms End with for example the lannisters on The stormlands side to make the war open and long. Now we have a situation with the entire reach armies unspent and siding with the current king , the opposite side of Aegon. This was far from paving the way for Aegon. Also letting Stannis take KL would prolong the war and force more casualties for Tywin and Mace. Stannis is little loved. Even if he somehow would be able to keep KL from being taken by Tywin it would be very easy for Aegon to find allies against him.

    The Others "inside" man

    You are right I forgot that happened with the gold cloaks. But we don't know if he have influence over some men in the gold cloaks, or want to use it to send someone else there too with a secret mission. Anyway it's just one tiny act against his major plot.

    The Others "inside" man

    Yes and such men that was. Rorge, Biter and Jaqen H'gar. Please explain to me how a faceless man ends up bound to the wall? Don't tell me he got caught It is not plausible. He got put there with a purpose, probably to assassinate Eddard Stark or the Lord Commander.

    The Others "inside" man

    Euron, yes the Black tide sweeping over a tall tower. Sure, he wants to be a God, but is he willing to share power with the White walkers? Are they willing to share power with a living semi-god? Varys serves "The Realm", but failed to specify whose realm. Human realm or the Others realm?

    The Others "inside" man

    Yes, Robb marching south was one of the best things that happened to the Others. But it was Varys who started it. He and Littlefinger encouraged the Lannisters and Starks against each other. While the most logical choice would be to make The Reach, Dorne, and The Stormlands fight since it is much closer to King landing and a more natural ground to fight over. Also Varys claim to help Aegon/fAegon and it makes much more sense for him to land on territory already at war. But yes The Starks are also connected somehow to Ice. Vary is, however, actively helping the Others.

    The Others "inside" man

    Ponder the idea that the Others have a man on the "inside" south of the wall. By inside I mean a person in the enemy camp clearing way for them in subtle ways and perhaps even gives them information. What would this person do? 1. Perhaps he would try to weaken the North in some ways, since this is the region closest to The Wall and most likely to help them if The Others should attack. 2. Perhaps he would want to weaken or make the northern lords dislike The Wall and the men there. He would try to make people "forget" about the wall. 3. One would most likely want to create wars and food to weaken mankind. 4. Most certainly would such a "man" would do everything in his power to stop Stannis and "the red witch" with her fire magic. As fire is effective against wights and perhaps the fire magic also. As a matter of fact, there is such a person doing exactly this thing. It is a person who got his job after his predecessor left for the wall and joined a white tree. And the man who replaced him is a necromancer. Odd, isn't it? He is described as a wizard or similar numerous times and he is associated with blue magic and blue flames when he lost his manhood. He is of course Varys the... Spider. We have all been deceived, there is a missing word in his "name", it should read Varys the ICE spider. I wrote a longer article about it here:

    Looking North: What did Bran see?

    I got inspired by this and created another topic regarding Blue Crystal and the Wall. Not only Bran describes The Wall as blue crystal. Jon also describes it that way. And there are other things also looking or being made of blue crystal.
  14. Inspired by this thread: I found "Blue Crystal" to match some interesting objects Quotes from all the books: "The Other slid forward on silent feet. In its hand was a longsword like none that Will had ever seen. No human metal had gone into the forging of that blade. It was alive with moonlight, translucent, a shard of crystal so thin that it seemed almost to vanish when seen edge-on. There was a faint blue shimmer to the thing, a ghost-light that played around its edges, and somehow Will knew it was sharper than any razor." So the swords of the Others look like blue crystal. "Finally, he looked north. He saw the Wall shining like blue crystal, and his bastard brother Jon sleeping alone in a cold bed, his skin growing pale and hard as the memory of all warmth fled from him. And he looked past the Wall, past endless forests cloaked in snow, past the frozen shore and the great blue-white rivers of ice and the dead plains where nothing grew or lived. North and north and north he looked, to the curtain of light at the end of the world, and then beyond that curtain. He looked deep into the heart of winter, and then he cried out, afraid, and the heat of his tears burned on his cheeks." The wall looks like blue crystal "When they reached the door—a tall oval mouth, set in a wall fashioned in the likeness of a human face—the smallest dwarf Dany had ever seen was waiting on the threshold. He stood no higher than her knee, his faced pinched and pointed, snoutish, but he was dressed in delicate livery of purple and blue, and his tiny pink hands held a silver tray. Upon it rested a slender crystal glass filled with a thick blue liquid: shade of the evening, the wine of warlocks. "Take and drink," urged Pyat Pree." Shade of the evening is served in a crystal glass with a blue liquid. "Outside the day was bright and cloudless. The sun had returned to the sky after a fortnight's absence, and to the south the Wall rose blue-white and glittering. There was a saying Jon had heard from the older men at Castle Black: the Wall has more moods than Mad King Aerys, they'd say, or sometimes, the Wall has more moods than a woman. On cloudy days it looked to be white rock. On moonless nights it was as black as coal. In snowstorms it seemed carved of snow. But on days like this, there was no mistaking it for anything but ice. On days like this the Wall shimmered bright as a septon's crystal, every crack and crevasse limned by sunlight, as frozen rainbows danced and died behind translucent ripples. On days like this the Wall was beautiful." Jon describes the wall looking blue-white like a septon's crystal "Of all the queer and fabulous denizens of the Shivering Sea, however, the greatest are the ice dragons. These colossal beasts, many times larger than the dragons of Valyria, are said to be made of living ice, with eyes of pale blue crystal and vast translucent wings through which the moon and stars can be glimpsed as they wheel across the sky. Whereas common dragons (if any dragon can truly be said to be common) breathe flame, ice dragons supposedly breathe cold, a chill so terrible that it can freeze a man solid in half a heartbeat." And lastly from TWOIAF ice dragons have eyes of blue crystal Coincidence? I think not. It seems blue crystal means some kind of blue/ice magic is at work. Who raised The Wall if it is made of Blue Crystal magic? I have read topics on the forum before claiming The Others made the Wall to keep humans out. This theory sounds a lot more plausible now to me.

    Small questions for ADwD, v.V

    Another question about Coldhands: When he meets Sam he call him Brother (brother over here). Later with Bran they are chased by some men from the nights watch, he refer to them as "enemies" and kill them. Odd?
