    Mance Rayder violated guest rights!

    Well, the Freys broke guest rights and the Boltons had their part in that plan. So I guess it is karma.

    Fat Walda's Future

    I just don't get one thing, why would her child (if it is a boy) be a threat to Ramsay's position. Ramsay is no longer a bastard, so he is Roose's heir. Fat Walda's child comes after, no matter if it is a boy or a girl.

    Ashara and Ned match

    The Daynes are an ancient house, they also have the blood of the first men. They are one of the most powerful vassals of House Martell, they were a respected house. I don't think Lord Rickard would be against it, his heir was marrying the Tullys, Ned was a second son, I think he would be allowed to choose his own bride, as long as it was a respectful marriage and a good alliance.

    Aegon is Faegon

    He said Arya or Dany, but he said he likes all of them in general. Even though he has his favourites, it didn't mean they will be alive in the end of the story. I am working on a fantasy saga, a story I want to write and I have my favourite characters, but I don't know who will be alive by the end of the story, because like GRRM, I like how every action has a consequence.

    Aegon is Faegon

    I don't think Daenerys is GRRM's favourite, in the past most pointed out his favourite was Tyrion and that Sam was based on him. People are mixing Show Daenerys with Book Daenerys. Show Daenerys is D&D's favourite, that's clear. But the same cannot be said of Book Daenerys and GRRM.

    Aegon is Faegon

    The more I think about Aegon, the more I am convinced he is not the real deal. I know some will claim Jon Connington would know if he was not Aegon, but how would he know it? He was exiled after the Battle of Bells, Aegon was what? A newborn baby, maybe a few moon turns old? It would be pretty easy to deceive Jon Connington and once you convinced him Faegon is Aegon, he would be willing to help his Prince's son claim the Iron Throne. I also think Faegon is Illyrio's son with Serra. That crossed my mind when Tyrion was in Pentos with Illyrio and he was given young boy's clothing. It couldn't be Viserys' clothes, because Viserys had moved to Illyrio's manse recently, it was not even a year if I am not mistaken. Viserys would be an adult, he would be wearing grown man's clothing. Those clothes can only be "Aegon's". Illyrio reveals that Serra was a whore from a pillow house in Lys, Lys is really close to where the Golden Company established themselves, really close to the Disputed Lands. I don't know about you, but I think she is a Blackfyre from the female line or a bastard from that house. I just can't buy the story that Aegon is Aegon, there's something off about all that.

    Least favorite theory?

    R + L = J became unbearable, I started to think it is too obvious and there are more we still don't know, what about Ashara Dayne? What about Brandon Stark? This "Rhaegar and Lyanna ran away together because they were in love" isn't really GRRM's style. It is too much fairy tale. I admit it is the closest thing we have as a theory concerning Jon, but I prefer the optional Ashara + Brandon = Jon and Rhaegar and Lyanna = Daenerys, plus a baby swapping.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    The damage is done, the show died already, season 4 was the last good season. As a book reader, I am no longer attached to any characters in the tv show, I came to a point that I am hoping the Others take them all. They dumbed the story down so casual viewers can understand it, they are basically calling their viewers "dumb". The show basically became shock value, some big battles to elevate the hype, a lot of boring and unecessary scenes, glorification of Jon, Daenerys, Tyrion, Arya and Cersei, all the other characters are now cast aside and killed out of nowhere to give space to the favourites of the audience. I am still trying to understand what is going on with Dorne and the Iron Islands in the show, and also, why kinslaying became so trivial in Westeros? It used to be a big deal, a monstruous crime, now it is common, nobody cares if you are a kinslayer, it seems it is normal to kill your brother, your father, your uncle or whatever. I am happy there are only 13 episodes left and then we will only wait for the books to give us the canon story. Like I read in this post: Book readers are rewarded for the waiting with a fantastic story, the lazy people have the tv show.

    Craster is a Stark

    Again, the Night's King is just a myth according to George and he has nothing to do with the Great Other, that is an old nan's tale. I am not denying the existance of the others, as they are there, but when the writer says: The Night's King is as dead as Bran the Builder and most likely a myth, I started to stop believing the Night's King will be in the books.

    Craster is a Stark

    There are theories about the others being originated from the Starks, but I think they are a tribe of First Men who suffered some ice magic and are kind of barren, so they can't exacctly reproduce normally, the First Men spread through Westeros for centuries after they arrived, maybe for milleniums.

    Craster is a Stark

    Crater is a bastard of a black brother, probably a ranger, it doesn't need to be the Lord Commander, but he may have some noble blood in his veins, again, it can be a Stark bloodline or not, maybe some random house.

    Atlas of Ice and Fire

    I think as it was mentioned in the OP, inside one of the links, we are only seeing less than one quarter of the globe and if I'm not mistaken, Planetos is bigger than earth IIRC. I think it is safe to say there are more continents and islands out there, but hey, it is a middle ages-like world, so people from Westeros don't know much about the far-east, only a few had traveled far. But I bet people form Qarth, Yi Ti and other places know more about other lands, maybe they just don't share it with others. It is impossible that about 3/4 of the planet are pure water or only a handful of small islands.

    [Book Spoilers] EP507 Discussion

    The stuff D$D did are backfiring. Even people who haven't read the books are noticing they are destroying the story. They wanted to piss us, book readers, off, so I don't pity for them, they deserve the negativity they are receiving.
