    Test: “We should start back,” Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them. “The wildlings are dead.” “Do the dead frighten you?” Ser Waymar Royce asked with just the hint of a smile. Gared did not rise to the bait. He was an old man, past fifty, and he had seen the lordlings come and go. “Dead is dead,” he said. “We have no business with the dead.” Great, thanks! If you could add the "remove formatting" function as well, it would be perfect!

    Lycos, I think that Martin plays with reality / perception of it quite a lot, making it a theme of the series. The POV structure helps too as does the concept of the "unreliable narrator" - what else do they give us but their perception of what happens around them? Also, Syrio's "look with your eyes" etc advice because "the heart lies and the head plays tricks with us" exemplifies the use of descriptors versus direct experience.

    I think that Marya is only Maria with an ASOIAF touch in spelling. A very common name, maybe the most common name for women irl and, given Davos' association to the "Mother" (and that he sees his wife much in that capacity), I think it fits.
