    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.

    First, on the main topic, some selected Tywin's words from the same chapter you quote, talking to Tyrion: "Mummers and monkeys require applause. So did Aerys, for that mater..." "Men's laws give you the right to bear my name and display my colors, since I cannot prove that you are not mine." "Speak no more of your rights to Casterly Rock." I'd say that Tywin thinks A+J=T As for Shae, even though I find her story confusing, I think it otherwise. When Tyrion arrived to his tent at the Green Fork, he found there Bronn, Pod and Shae. I tend to think that Shae was in Tywin retinue, as was Pod, and both were sent by him. Perhaps he tried to keep Tyrion busy so that he didn't flee from the trap he was sending him to. I don't recall any clue that she was informing Tywin, and maybe she didn't, after all KL was under siege, but still I suspect that she did when Tywin came in. I don't think Tywin had Alayaya whipped, either. He couldn't have confused her with Shae. Excuse my racism, but one of them was black while the other was white. In his conversation with Tyrion, it seems that he let Cersei do, in part to appease her, in part to sent a warning to Tyrion. Anyway, even if he did, he knew whom he was whipping. Never forget that the passage to Chataya's whorehouse that Tyrion used had been built for another Hand, too proud to admit he visited a whorehouse. I think Shae was at Tywin's service since the Green Fork till her death.

    I think it's in t the last Bran chapter in ACOK. Bran says he'd paid a visit to Ghost, and maybe Jon too. It must be the wolf dream that Jon tells to Quorin. It's not clearly said, but I felt like if BR were opening Jon's third eye through Bran. Otoh, Arya will connect with Nymeria all by herself, even though they parted soon enough.

    Is there any news about the Myrish tapestries? I suspect it's a big red herring. LF might wanted them for futile reasons: they're worthy, to puzzle Cersei, to look kingly, he just liked them,...

    In fact, the poison is concentrated at first in a bit of crystal. I guess that if someone drinks from the cup when the crystal has been just thrown in, they'd swallow a tiny amount of poison, if any. Otoh, the remaining wine will eventually contain a higher concentration of poison. This is only logical. There are still two questions unanswered : how long it takes the poison to dissolve (completely unknown) and if the crystals go to the bottom (unknown but seemingly.) No evidence but two clues. Melisandre drinks first and suffers nothing, Cressen ends up the cup and chokes at once. Joffrey starts drinking and nothing happens but as he empties the cup, he has increasig troubles. He doesn't finish the cup and it takes him longer to die than Cressen. He was also much younger and stronger, and the cup was larger. No hint of how much poison was used in each case. No certainty, but...
