    Heresy 218 a brief walk on the dark side

    Yes, he THINKS! Thinking is not knowing... Aemon could be wrong in his thinking, as any actually living person at Planetos he has not seen the original Lightbringer, just read and studied the prophecies. And he has been mislead by prophesioes in the past, remember the "Prince that was promised", he as well thought many years it must be a prince, and only the existence of Dany and her dragons convinced him the prince must be a princes!

    Heresy 218 a brief walk on the dark side

    Interesting thought! If Jon is Lightbringer 2.0, so how is his forging-process? First attempt: water Ned brought Jon via ship over WATER to Winterfell. During this voyage the original boy (whoever he was, Rhaegar/Lyannason or whomever) "died" and is "reborn" as Jon Snow, bastard son of Ned Stark. A little bit a far fetch - any better ideas...??? Secand attempt: ice Easy! Jon is send/gone to the Wall, and the boy Jon Snow "died" to become the Lord Commander (kill the boy and let the man be born...) So this leads to the third attempt: blood! Will Jon has to kill someone? His Wife? If so, who will be his wife...??? Or should we take the "wife" not literal, and he has to "kill" somethging he holds very dear? He has already "killed" the Nightwatch... Any ideas / thoughts? --- Oh shit, I confused the second attempt, it's a lion instead of ice... So this shatters my nice theory into cracked pottery, I guess. Well, errare humanum est.

    See the actual Dawn as the former, bright red burning, Lightbringer, whose "Fire" has nearly gone out, just leaving a dim, white glow.. Compare it with a once bright burning log, then becoming a orange glowing piece of charcoal, and then the charcoal is coverd with white ash, nearly gone out, just slowly glowing in the inside... Could it be "reanimated"? Or must it be reforged?

    Heresy 217 Dreams and Dust

    Possible, but for me the Summerhall-tragedy comes to my mind here: "From a smoking tower, a great stone beast took wing, breathing shadow fire." Beeing a Targarayan site, there would been surely Stone-Dragons and other Beasts at the towers and buildings. Whatever happend there, it was a fire, very likely an explosion, so imagine Dany sees in her vision just the moment when the explosion took place, the explosion who will blast the Tower in pieces...

    The Three-Eyed-Crow is Old Nan, not Bloodraven

    No! I would say a logical assumption is, that there must be more than one Shadowbinder in Asshai... Surely shadowbinding and dark magic is not a common trade as baking bread or beeing a carpenter, but Asshai is the center of shadowbinding, I think it high likely that there are more than just one teacher there. For sure, this does not rule out the possibility that Quaite and MMD get in contact there, but it is not certain!

    Heresy 208 Winter is Coming

    Maybe she brings the Wall down by accident... Yes, I don't think he will be resurrected right at the beginning from TWOW, maybe we get some Jon-inside-Ghost-PoV's...

    Manderly Wrote the Pink Letter

    I really like this thougt! Mance's black cloak was sewn up by red silk of Asshai... As you stated - why should Mel burn a fake-Mance to save the real-Mance? Just to burn him later on...???

    Heresy 208 Winter is Coming

    My bet here is on "stay" - Mel itself has stated that at the wall her magic is more powerfull. If she resurrects Jon, she will do it at the wall. And then we have even two PoV at the wall!

    Heresy 208 Winter is Coming

    Do you really believe this? The next book is called "The Winds Of Winter" - so tell me, where does these winds will most likely blow? Out of the "land of always winter"? Or somewhere in Essos...???

    The perfumed seneschal

    Yes, this is as well for me the reason to rule him out. And he is as well not all the times perfumed, only if he poses as Varys he uses perfumes, if he poses as the gaoler he uses stink etc. The perfume is only part of his disguise, only one part in one special disguise.

    Heresy 205 bats and little green men

    I also wonder about the claim that Quaithe is a shadowbinder. This business of touching Dany's wrist might be a kind of shadowbinding that allows Quaithe to come to Dany by other means rather than by glass candle. I expect someone peering through flames to have eyes like burning coals rather than shining with moonlight. I always interpreted this as the real moonlight reflecting in Quaithes Eyes. The scene takes place at night, so it could be the real moon reflecting in her eyes.

    Heresy 205 bats and little green men

    Interesting thought. Do you think this is his goal? To me in all likelyhood he's more the one who tries some magic without really understanding what he is doing... A kind of trial and error. But that's more a gut-feeling about Euron, not textproofed.

    Heresy 205 bats and little green men

    Don't get me wrong, I do not doubt tht Euron does blood sacrifice, I only doubt that he sacrifices to the drowned god. Only his sailors think so, most likely because the drowned god is the iron islanders god. Especially the involvement of warlocks (from Quarth) suggest a different god (or demon, if there is a difference between gods and demons...) as the drowned god (from the iron islands). I think Euron is just experimenting with magic (without much knowledge about the whole thing), maybe he don't even know exactely whom he is sacrificing. Maybe he don't even care as long as it works and he can benefit...

    Heresy 205 bats and little green men

    Well, it was "whispered about" and that ist not quite the same as "it is proof". Maybe they saw Euron made blood sacrifice - but maybe he did not sacrifice the drowned god but someone or something else, and the sailors just interpreted it as a sacrifice to the drowned god because the drowned god is their god. Who knows whom Euron sacrifices...???

    Gods Are Not Mocked: Deals with the Devil at Harrenhal

    I don't! For sure - all we can do is speculation... Maybe it works somehow this way: Arya claims three deaths, so her "payment" is three deaths. Howland claims a favour, so his payment is another "favour" (Don Vito Corleone comes to mind...). Do we ever discover what this favour was or will be? I don't know. Or maybe the difference is that Howland asks for Justice. Maybe the price for Justice ist somehow different as if one asks the God's aka Devil for a personal benefit...??? And Arya doesn't ASK for anything, she STEALS the three lives!
