    What do we really know about Ashara Dayne?

    Quoting Barry, a man dishonoured Ashara at Harrenhall. I reckon he's a good source, so that it can be taken for granted. He says to himself a man did it, as if implying a passive behaviour in Ashara. To me, a material question is who could be the man who dishonoured Ashara and got away with it. There are stories on how slights were dealt with in that same tourney, and we know what happened when Rhaegar took Lyanna away. Those kind of things were not easily forgiven. She was no tavern wench, she was Arthur Dayne's sister, Elia Martell's lady in waiting, Barry's crush, and it seems Ned's too. There are plenty of candidates for punishing the man who did it, but eventually no one showed up. Who could he be? I think the shortlist is restricted to Aerys, Rhaegar and Oberyn. And I can find good reasons for all but discard two of them. Any else?

    The identity of the Knight of the Laughing Tree

    Well, I've always thought it was Ned. Don't ask me why, this stuff is taking too long to remember the details. Now than I reread the quotes, it makes sense. Ned took HR to his tent, HR prayed to the gods, and Ned heard, or the gods heard through Ned's ears, or whatever. The bottom line is, Ned did the deed. I know, I must elaborate a bit more. Ned was not fond of tournaments, nowhere is told that he take part in any, Instead, he was a proficient warrior. He was not ready to joust, so he had to make do with a happenstance armour. IMO, Ned jousted as it was needed, defeated the knights, and quit. As for his features, he still was a boy, his body was not full. He sure seemed shorter than he really was. Jon is a reference, he took after Ned and he was not too tall, either. He was a good fighter, but rather quick than strong, IIRC. Moreover, I guess Benjen could have helped Ned to find his armour and it might have been the reason for him to take the black. Benjen was the closest to Lyanna and might have felt somewhat guilty, or sorry, miserable. Guilty or not, he'd lost his beloved sister while he was sitting on his hands in WF. Still, this can be a little too stretched, I could do without.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Thanks! It's funny how a close friend of Rhaegar was drinking with the man who'll kill him. Some say he's hiding and it's named Lemoncloak. It could make sense, even though I find it queer to change one's name and keep that blatant cloak.That's a new clue, I'll take note of what Lem says about drinking. Eta. It'd be like Arstan wearing a white cloak. Well, he could have worn it, but he left it in KL.

    TPTWP Born between smoke and salt. I've just noticed...THAT'S A HAM!! Well, it could be a salmon as well. I wonder if it means something of GRRM was just having some fun. On second thoughts, a ham is more or less dead meat. Corpses freezing in the ice cells? Jon Snow, maybe? Eta. In fact, he was butchered as a pig becoming pork.

    In the first conversation in KL between Tywin and Tyrion, the former leaves pretty clear that he believes Tyrion is Aerys' son. He may be right or else, but he's the most qualified to know. His coming to and going from KL only can confirm the facts.

    ^So do I. When the readers met her, the house with the red door is the only home she'd known. Afters, she feels home when she dreams of the Dothraki see, however she'd become a queen at Slavers' Bay. I think this has to play in the aftermath.

    This I agree. And I don't say Tywin wasn't involved in Alayaya's punishment, but I think it was Cersei's notion and he obliged. It's a proven fact that Tywin wouldn't shy from punishing an innocent as long as it served his purposes. He knew what he was doing, no mistake. What I'm musing about is that Tywin was full aware of Shae since the very start. In that world fickle allegiances (who's men the Kettleblacks were?), she always was Tywin's woman, not Tyrion's. I think I've found clues that make this story more credible than others. Not sure, it's a bit raw yet, but ... On the main topic, I said it's pretty clearly stated that Tywin at least suspected that Tyrion was Aerys' son. That would explain a couple of things

    I know what Bronn told, not that I must believe it. Sellsword's words. He might be doing as he had been instructed to, or just boasting. My point is that Tywin knew that Tyrion was seeing Shae, not Alayaya, and he didn't interfere with Cersei. It's said that another Hand, most possibly Tywin, used a secret passage that led to the very Alayaya's room, and it has to be with some purpose. I guess Shae was working for him and he was glad with other people not suspecting. In a nutshell, my view is that Shae was already at Tywin's service when met Tyrion. I allow that the clues are not concluding, and I'm looking for more on this, but it's now when the topic has arisen. Eta. Why should Tywin care about a whore in a battle? He told Tyrion not to take her to KL and, according to that quote, he doesn't seem to know that Tyrion didn't oblige. Only I don't buy into it.
