    Heresy 218 a brief walk on the dark side

    I think the forging is literal as well. AA forges the sword in water in a first attempt as a normal part of the process. The sword shatters. Step 2 involves the heart of a lion which I don't take literally. In this case, I think the lion is a king or king's blood is involved. Step 3 in the heart of his beloved. In this case, I think a bonded female dragon. We're told that AA once slew a beast and the sword was warm to the touch afterwards, presuming it wasn't beforehand. The description of the beast and Dany transformation in spiritual fire are virtually the same.

    If the old gods are the gods of wood, stream and stone; it might follow that dragons waking from stone, stone dragon eggs, etc; include dragons as an aspect of the old gods along with the wierwood.

    I think it was Frey Family Reunion who suggested that the Undying are addressing both Dany and Drogon when she is greeted as 'mother of dragons' and Drogon is addressed as 'child of three'. I've always thought that made sense.

    That would be nice, but I know better than to count my chickens before they are hatched.

    I wonder what Ghost has to do with it since he belongs to the old gods and brought Jon to the hidden cache. Ghost is also mute, like the horn. I think the horn will do multiple things.

    We don't yet know what Dragonbinder will do to Victarion. We just know that you can't wind it and remain alive. I'd just say that sorcery has a price.

    If the horn wakes the sleepers, who are the sleepers? Jon wonders if blowing the horn will wake the sleepers, will it also put them back to sleep. I think that sleepers refers to the dead and the undead seem like the best candidates to me. The small horn can't be winded in it's current state since it is cracked. But if it's repaired and made into a 'drinking cup'; it may well be a cup of ice. I suspect the horn binds men to it's will among other things. Horns are also used to wake the Watch from sleep and the small horn is of the type typical for a man of the Watch to carry. I think the true horn is hidden in plain sight with Sam, but it must be repaired whenever Sam gets around to remembering it. What is the cold thing? Is it the source of the cold magic?

    I'm reminded of Whitetree with it's mouth filled with burnt offerings. The reborn sound like the white walkers. Both Bran and Dany pass through a mouth that symbolically devours them. This, to me, is the middle head of Trios. I

    Sure. I still entertain the notion that the Black Gate is the middle head of the god Trios; the head that nobody knows how it functions. So far, Bran is the only Stark who has interacted with the Wall in the form of the Gate; receiving a blessing of sorts when the Gate drops a salt tear of Bran's forehead. Bran is 'the one' whom Coldhands is sent to collect.

    I've entertained the idea that the blue flower growing from a chink in the Wall represents Bran (another Stark blue rose). To my mind the chink in the Wall represents the Black Gate and there is a connection between the Gate and Bran's growing power. Recalling that Mel tells Jon that there is power in the Wall; which Jon can use if he chooses; I think this must also apply to Bran who have passed through the portal. The idea that Danny cannot see Bran's face but rather sees a blue flower; fits with my notion that Bran's identity is hidden from both Mel and Dany in their visions. Mel sees the child with a wolf's head howling at her and Dany sees the Great Wolf in the fire during Drogo's ordeal in the tent. Although Dany is able to see the 'man limned in flame' she can't pierce the veil surrounding Bran. Something similar happens with Tree-Bran when he encounters Ghost-Jon. He tells us that he touches Ghost and talks to Jon. So while attention is focused primarily on Jon; I think it's entirely possible that this is Bran instead.

    I think this is an interesting possibility.

    We shouldn't forget that Coldhands is also present at the Black Gate. It seems to be that he acts as a gatekeeper and that his presence is necessary for the Gate to appear. He may be a manifestation or aspect of the Gate itself.

    Also, a beast is by definition: an inhumanly cruel, violent, or depraved person. So while I'm inclined to think the magic involved includes Melisandre and Stannis; I wouldn't rule out Euron or Victarion. Whatever their designs involving Dany; it makes sense that a vision would involve them, if it affects her.

    Heresy 216 The Return of the Crow

    If there is a correlation to the Nazgul; I think that it has something to do with the Night King binding his brothers with strange magic. I imagine that the Night King is really the King of Winter represented by the crown and it's nine swords and/or the grove of nine weirwoods where Jon takes his vows.
