    Small Questions v. 10105

    Hey guys, Any of you know in which chapter Jon learns of Robb's death, then Bran and Rickon's presumed death off the top of yall's heads? If not I'll keep combing A Search of Ice and Fire ETA: Bran and Rickon he learns of in Jon VI, Storm I feel like he learns about Robb off page, but this doesn't seem right

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Also, we were discussing House Peake's three castles the other day in another thread. Unlike the Toland's there's nothing official iirc, but it seems a pretty safe bet that they didn't just get three castles then designed their coat of arms. More likely, at some point the House changed its official sigil to that because it looked cooler than whatever they had before (two castles?)

    Small Questions v. 10105

    The only theories I can think of on Val are to do with her Weirwood brooch. Something to do with priestesses and matrilineal heritage or something. I don't really recall too well though since I wasn't really invested in it. I think it was a Victarion Chainbreaker theory but I could even be mistaken about that too. Pretty sure Bran Vras had a whole thing about that, too. Still not Umber-related but I thought it might interest The Fattest Leech anyway.

    Small questions for ADwD, v.V

    I know I'm late to the party, but did you ever get round to doing that? I'd be really intersted in a group general reread.

    Daemon didn't fly off with Nettles, he had a showdown with Aemond where he killed him and ended up falling in the Gods' Eye with Ceraxes. His body was never found though, so you're right, we can't know he's dead for sure. As for Nettles, the Worldbook gave us an interesting tidbit about the Burned Men that is very likely about Nettles: http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/124067-Nettles-as-the-Burned-Men%27s-fire-witch

    It is kind of included in the RLJ threads I guess.

    She gave him a poisoned coin, knowing he would bite it.

    The King's fires are running low, and Jon doesn't feel like playing sperm donor for the Cause?

    Just came upon this and thought of you: aDwD 56 (Tyrion XI) I'm about positive it the same Iron Legions we heard about. So, since they're "just" citizens, I highly doubt they're cut. :P

    Heresy threads sometimes discuss this, but it's a lot to search through.

    Small questions for ADwD, v.V

    We know from her POV chapter Mel sincerely believes Stannis is AAR. Azor Ahai having Lightbringer is "only" a prophecy, so it can be interpreted in many ways. I think Mel believes what matters is that AAR has a Lightbringer, not necessarly the very one the original Azor Ahai bore, if it even exists. Maybe she also thinks one can make prophecies come true. By giving a Lightbringer to Stannis, even if she knows perfectly well it's just a glamor, she ticks one more box on the "Getting AA to get reborn list". It's really hard to know just how much Stannis believes in/cares about the whole thing, imo. I think he definitely didn't take it seriously before a certain point, but now...

    I have no idea either, except I really don't want to think of Mel as a Fred. We only had one chapter of hers anyway, and I doubt any were pushed to Dream since the stabbing is such a nice cliffhanger. Your comments were hilarious, by the way. I wish he'd do the same with Winds, that'd make for some fun speculation.

    It has been theorized that Others could indeed make seas (or part of seas) freeze to make landbridges. I believe one of the reasons behind this thinking is that Azor Ahai is likely an eastern figure, yet Mel seems convinced he fought Others - so it seems reasonable to think they got to Essos at some point. Since they are sentient and have a technology that sometimes surpasses mankind's (basass swords and camouflage armor and whatnot), I for one think they could very well have boats of some sort, too. That being said, the Wall is magic, and has some sort of ward around it; surely it expends at least a little into the sea? As for the dragons' sex, it seems dragons change theirs during their lifespan (like some animals on Earth do). Aemon says so to Sam during his "Dany is AA reborn" tirade.

    This. I don't want to sound like a dick, but knowing characters get PoV later on means they won't die, which is a spoiler.
