    Dwarfism: A Targaryen Trait?

    This. Too much rich irony is lost if Tyrion belongs to Aerys. If the twins belong to Aerys, which I think is the case, then Tyrion and Jaime each killed his own father, and the only child that Tywin despises is the only child he has sired.
  2. Random thought: Christopher Judge as Areo Hotah. I think it works.

    Ramsay Snow keeps the skin of his female victims as trophies, like Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.

    AFFC p. 298, The Queenmaker "Beneath the burning sun of Dorne, wealth was measured as much in water as in gold..." Another Dune reference, I think. Also first time I noted the similarity of the names Dune and Dorne.

    Genesis 19:26 But Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Dance, Jon 2, p. 137, at the burning of glamoured Mance: Val stood on the platform as still as if she had been carved of salt. She will not weep nor look away.

    Due to special genetic circumstances, Jon Snow and Paul Atreides both have supernatural powers. Also both have a red-haired mistress from the wild native population (Chani/Ygritte). Credit to Ygrain and Alia of the knife.

    The glass candles are like the palantir in LOTR. Credit to wyman's cook. And Craster giving his sons to the Others, substituting sheep if no sons are available, is an evil perversion of Abraham, Isaac, and the new covenant.

    Theon is similar to Gollum. Credit idea to The Black Wolf.

    I thought Bran might make the sacrifice in Jon's stead. Either one is dreadful.

    http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/62077-brans-weirwood-visions/ @ Ravenhair We talked about the Grail King connection on this thread about Bran's weirwood visions. There are references in ASOIAF about holding the leader accountable for a bad harvest - in Pentos they elect the Prince for life but if the crops fail they execute him. This led to discussion about the sacrifice of the Winter King to end a particularly bad winter, a practice in some primitive societies; this seemed a dark omen about why there must always be a Stark in Winterfell. Link posted above. If you can wade through all the business about eye color that is intermingled, it was an interesting discussion.

    You remember a lot more of Macbeth than I do, but I suppose since it's your favorite...
