    Small Questions v. 10105

    We don't see that happening if I remember all correctly, but that's probably because it would not add to the story if we did. I assume it is just the same, as the smaller houses will imitate the ways of the great ones. A regency does not mean that title and power are delayed, especially not the title. It means that de-facto the power is not yet fully in the hands of the wielder: "The king is dead, long live the king!", you know. Same goes for lords of any rank.

    He is not dead yet. He is either dying or Aurane is lying. It's not a small question. I am pretty positive that Aurane is not giving an all-true account, based on him probably having ambitions and plans of his own. However, that does not tell us what condition Ser Loras is truly in, or if he ever was at Dragonstone etc.

    Nay, I believe that in-story people probably think that LF will die without heirs before long, given he is without any family anyone knows of. That, together with his title, puts his life at stake. And nay, we do not know of any post LF-agreement.

    I'm truly no expert on the Lannister-Bolton-Frey-Riverlands conspiracy, but the fact check would be before the Red Wedding: The Freys are the largest and most powerful house in their corner of Riverlands. What they were lacking besides anyone's respect were the LP name and geographical position to exert it. Those latter two were with the Tullys in Riverrun. Post Red Wedding, Littlefinger, an appearingly powerless nobody did get a luckless financial and power-wise fiasco ruin called Harrenhal and the name and title LP, while house Frey got access to the essential choice bits of the Riverlands in Riverrun. And who could tell if there even was some sort of a post-Littlefinger agreement as well?

    World (Riverlands) domination also played a role in it.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Yes: a ) A literary device: The closeness of the prologue which describes the Others' blades as looking much alike to ice crystal to chapter 2, there is only one chapter in between, so the reader should at least subconsciously remember that bit. b ) A rather blunt hint: the name "ice" That alone would not do much, but it backs the idea begotten by a) more than just a bit. Without the conscious mind getting at it, the book tells us, there once may have been a sword, much like those the Others are using in the prologue.

    A point in making first grade cousins marry in the western aristocracy was to keep the wealth in the family. Would fit as a Lannister motive, but I don't remember if we were told Joanna was from a poor or rich branch of the family tree.

    @W1NT3RF3LL: As you may see by the length and complexity of your question, it is not a small one. Also it would be well placed in R+L=J, a series of threads that have recently put a lot of effort in sheding light at the how and when and where of the Lyanna/Rhaegar abduction / kidnapping / rescue / running-away-together possibilities.

    Welcome @Barış Solmaz to the forum! Never tried IMDb for discussions myself. eta: note this community and board is split in tv-show and books forums. So unless you care for both: carefully stay in yours, if you do not want to be spoiled by the other.
