    Heresy 209 Of Ice and of Fire

    It's interesting that it's the green wood that is on the move rather than the white weirwood. Soldier pines and sentinel trees come to mind.

    The Three Eyed Crow is Old Nan not Bloodraven

    Yes of course. If we ever get the book. LOL

    The Three Eyed Crow is Old Nan not Bloodraven

    I think the tree-Bran, Ghost-Jon encounter is an example of GRRM messing with linear time since Jon has this experience before Bran has passed the Wall and becomes wed to the weirwood. Bloodraven tells us that greenseers don't experience time in the same manner as men. The river moves in one direction for men but not greenseers. I also think the magic of the Black Gate is the device that Bran uses since Jon's description of tree-Bran is very similar to Bran's description of the weirwood at the Night Fort and I think it's evident that Bran can access any weirwood once he was wed to the tree. Melisandre tells us that there is power in the Wall that Jon use and she is also aware of the Black Gate. I think Black Gate is the middle head of the god Trios; the function of which nobody understands. It's not just a physical portal between places. Jon is strongly bonded with Bran and it seems possible to me that Jon will access the Black Gate and come to Bran in his coma dream. So I'm waiting to see if that's what happens.

    Good question. I think you mean 3 eyed crow. There is no mention of the 3 eyed raven in the books, only in the show. It's my contention that Old Nan is talking about the Night's Watch when she says crows are all liars. Mormont says as much: This leads me to think that the 3EC is a man of the Watch. But I favor Jon over Bloodraven and I think Patchface tells us who the 3EC actually is:

    Drogo's Life Paid for the Dragons

    The question is whether Drogo died first since he is something of a zombie afterwards and Rheago was still-born during the tent ritual. So if this formula is true; then Drogo is for all intents and purposes dead although his body still breathes. Waking the dragon is not the same as transmitting Drogo's soul into the black egg. I still maintain that this is Rheagar's egg and his soul is trapped in the egg, that he is the one who died 'long ago'. It's the sacrifice of the king and his son that wakes the dragon. Melisandre seems to be following the same formula when she says she needs Robert's bastard to wake the great dragon.

    Why are the volcanos in Volantis called the fourteen flames and what is the connection to fire magic? Moqorro says that the massive eruption was caused by men and the result was the wrath of the gods. When you interpret the story of the Island of Nagga as a sea mount rising from the sea, the story takes on another meaning. We're also told that Dragonstone Castle was created with sorcery.

    I'm inclined to think that a 'sea dragon' is actually a volcanic mount rising from the sea and the source of dragonglass. Dragonstone is another example of a sea dragon complete with a 'sea dragon' tower. Where did the cotf get their obsidion? What was GRRM referring to when he said that once there were 'dragons' in Westeros?

    Yah, I have the sense that the cold gods are those disembodied souls (cotf) who take flight when the cold winds come and that returning them to stone reduces the numbers. They either go into the earth, the stones or the trees. This also fits with the notion that stone dragon eggs also trap souls. Again, I wonder about the failed greenseers impaled on spears of ice.

    On the other hand, obsidion draws out the cold and the snow and ice becomes unbound. Who are the cold gods?

    Uff. And now for the conclusion: 1. Obsidian is not only a host for Children but also binds White Walkers into the "stone". 2. Sam is not looking when he kills the WW with the dagger. Sadly we do not know if the obsidian lights (like Lightbringer or the candles) when he touches his target. I assume it is the case. 3. The light in the obsidian candles somehow gives me the idea that it can connect to/bind the spirit/soul of skinchangers. And that the Others are skinchangers. Much like Bran or Jon (remember how he steamed when he was stabbed, almost like the WW steamed that Sam killed) ... or Dany in that case. And that skinchanging is, what Dany should remember.  This is a very interesting idea! The dragon eggs themselves are shells made of magic stone. I'm reminded of Dany's description of the black and white doors in the HoU: Weaving is a euphamism for magic. It's the vivid colors of Dany's vision that reminds me of the glass candles:

    Yes, why the number 100 specifically? I know this has been discussed a while back. Something to do with the 100 kingdoms and 1 man per kingdom serving at the Wall. Perhaps they didn't serve for life and there was turnover.

    There is also the strange case of Ned Stark's ghost pulled back to the Winterfell crypts all the way from KL. Since his bones weren't there, I suspect he was taken into the weirwood and it's no mistake that Arya hears his voice at Harrenhal or that Jon dreams of the weirwood with his father's face watching him.

    They don't call it the haunted forest for nothing.

    Claimants for Azor Ahai

    The ritual that Dany performs and what she sees in the flames is on a different order of sorcery than Melisandre burning some blood filled leaches in her brazier. We know there is a certain power in using Varys' genitals as a burnt offering, Dany offers, the head, the heart and genitals of a king along with the live offering of holy blood, MMD, the godswife. We also get some hint of the use of holy blood for sorcery in the Foresaken chapter with Euron. We never get a glimpse of what Mel actually sees; we only get it this one time with Dany. It's Drogo's fiery whip that cracks the eggs, but the dragon bursts from MMD's head. We get that in Dany's vision in the House of Undying. Preceding all of this is Dany's own transformation when she wakes the dragon in the stone and it sings to her bathing her in cleansing fire. I think it is the dragon song that confers on her temporary immunity from fire. Perhaps she is hearing the 'song of fire'. Songs and singing are part of the rituals of magic. Mel does it and Mirri sings as well. She then exchanges the life of her son for the dragon long dead during the tent ritual. Her unborn son changes states with the dead dragon and is born dead wrapped in dragon skin while the life in the egg is restored. Someone who was long dead or so Dany tells us. That can't be Drogo.
