    The danger of Gerold Dayne

    Myrcella is not dead. Balon Swann was at court in KL for years. He was in the party that put her on the boat to Dorne. He would recognize Myrcella. There is no way Doran could pass off a fake Myrcella on Swann.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    Varys knew that the headman's ax was always hovering over his neck, (and even says things to the effect in the books), so he must have made himself useful enough to the new regime. Since Robert was not all that interested in ruling, Jon Arryn's opinion of Varys may have gone a long way and it may have even been Jon's decision to pardon Varys. We also don't know what other help Varys provided in terms of betraying others to the new regime. Looking at the list of people who have served as Master of Whisperers, almost all are foreigners, cripples, eunuchs, and/or bastards. Not a group of people held in high regard, so for nobles, they may think that dirty work, like spying, is for those beneath them.

    Poll: Is Sweetrobin the Son of Littlefinger?

    We will never know. Also, it is irrelevant to the story.

    Crasters White Walker arrangement

    Craster is just exposing/killing his sons. It is not an arrangement.

    Craster and the Others: Why?

    Craster is just exposing/killing his sons. It is not an arrangement.
  6. Helaena also threw herself from a tower. The 'Prince' could have been either of her sons. Without having the specifics of the song, the loss of a prince does not have to be a lover, but a son. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Helaena_Targaryen

    Poll. Is Bran ever leaving the cave?

    Yes, but he will end up attached to a weirwood tree, either under Winterfell or perhaps the new tree near the Nightfort.

    He was reportedly a bit of a womanizer, so maybe "roll in the hay?"

    References and Homages

    @Ran Is House Errol a homage to Errol Flynn? Seems like GRRM is of an age that he would have watched Flynn's swashbuckling movies as a kid.

    Summerhall is central to the series

    What about the potential of what might have happened at KL if Aerys's wildfire was ignited?

    Would be curious to know who Hasty fought for during the Robellion. His track record is fickle.

    It could be that, if it might have been that, he could have done that... then of course!

    Is x character a psychopath?

    Psychopathology is society specific. Since none of these societies have any concepts of psycho-analysis or psychiatry, there can be no diagnosis of any mental conditions.

    What do you think is going on?

    https://asearchoficeandfire.com/ No results for your quoted text. At least try to make up a tinfoil hat out of things actually from the books, not fan fic.

    What do you think is going on?

    Not my job to do your research for basic quotes in the book. That is up to you.

    Ned never says this.
  22. I believe that Dragonstone was already a Targaryen holding, even before Aenar moved the whole family and holdings there. I wonder if Daenys the Dreamer was on Dragonstone when she had this dream or if she was in Valyria. If so, the closer proximity to Westerosi magical elements may have given Daenys the dreams of the Doom.
  23. Travel on the Kingsroad would absolutely be faster and have more accommodation than crossing at the Twins. Also, there are more lords for Rickard to socialize with along the Kingsroad. And maybe people were coming down from the Vale to join up with Rickard's party. Unless there is a war on or there is some reason to rush there, it makes more sense to stick to the Kingsroad. Shorter does not always mean faster or better.

    Shadow Maps

    It could be marking angles of shadows to do calculations about seasons/weather and/or time of year. Which are all a little wonky on Planetos. (Think a shadow stick.)
