  1. Meaning what? Maybe you're not intentionally being vague but all I can tell from this statement is that he didn't think of the name "Blackfyre" or the arms until later... minor details My impression is he knew there had been a civil war, or series of wars, with a bastard branch but didn't work out the details until CoK/SoS/Sworn Sword (forgetting which atm). And is your "certainty" from a vague answer to a question or outline/working notes? Since I already disagree with plenty of your text interpretations how should I take your certainty on this?

    Did Grey Wind warn Robb about Theon?

    No, the wolves react to active deceit, they are not prophets.

    Best theory you've ever heard

    Ned = KotLT Honorable mention: Tywin has been constipated for decades. Guard 1: Why's he spend so much time in there? Guard 2: Where do you think all their gold comes from? Guard 1: What do you mean? Guard 2: He shits gold.

    Why do the Starks want a Targaryen match?

    Do you have any evidence for this?
  5. Using mendelian genetics on human lineage is like using addition only to compute the number of atoms in the multiverse.

    Worst theory you've ever heard

    Syrio is pretty early... Surely his fake death would have occurred before the sum of fake deaths reached the acceptable limit. What is that limit by the way? Perhaps you think Bran & Rickon should be really dead. Or Davos? Or Tyrion x 6 times?

    Worst theory you've ever heard

    That the 3 page outline is George's "original" plan for the series. More like plan 14Z, with most of it rushed to fill in the blanks for a publisher proposal... Has no relevancy to anything.

    What's your Nissa Nissa theory?

    1) Yes 2) Yes 3) Maybe Not all at the same time... NN might be one of those, or another such event. More importantly the story of NN reveals how magic works in the world. In a world of blood magic, self-sacrifice produces the strongest magic. The rough sacrificial hierarchy: Slaves, commoners, people-you-don't-know("No one you love, no one you hate") < Friends, Family, Enemies (Kinslaying) < Self AA isn't the important one... it was NN that created Lightbringer. ("The woman is important too!")

    The identity of the Knight of the Laughing Tree

    Ah yes... 7-8 books 7-8 kingdoms 9 free cities ~30 PoVs 3 major languages (a ~dozen minor) 3-4 major religions (a ~dozen minor) But 1 Mystery Guess I'm just interpreting the series a bit differently.

    Congrats! You've won a footlong sub for referring to the wrong quote for the 10th time.

    The identity of the Knight of the Laughing Tree

    I referenced Catelyn's comparison of current Ned (in AGoT) vs Ned during their wedding... Brandon is not mentioned. You guys are the ones trying to twist it into a Brandon comparison... Clearly impossible to debate people so dogmatic.

    The identity of the Knight of the Laughing Tree

    It's really just not worth arguing with anyone that can't even imagine any plausible scenario on their own for any theory. It is sad if you have so little imagination though, or are simply too stubborn to even make an attempt. Some things to consider if you do make an attempt: Ned & Howland's relationship, Ned & Lyanna's relationship, Ned & Robert's relationship, Ned & Brandon's relationship, Aerys' motivation for calling for Ned & Robert's heads, the known and unknown events of the Tower of Joy, the known and unknown events at the Red Keep with Aerys, Rickard and Brandon & co. Also good to drop your personal headcannon of Jon being the most important person/thing/idea in all the books and RLJ needing every sentence of the books twisted in its favor (that doesn't mean RLJ is wrong btw, it just doesn't need the entirety of the books). IMO there are many options for Ned being KotLT that are far more compelling than the popular Rhaegar + Lyanna in the forest fanfic. There are also a couple better options for Lyanna than the fanfic... but they still don't stand up to Ned. IMO if you haven't done an entire re-read of the series with a particular theory in mind... you haven't bothered to actually consider the theory yet.

    The identity of the Knight of the Laughing Tree

    I already mentioned some evidence, Catelyn's statements. I'm not going to go through all the books to list out quotes when you'll just ignore them anyways and say "WHHAAA IT'S LAYNNAAAAA".
