About Luthien Targaryen

  1. I have a theory that the prophesy is about Tyrion's failure to consummate his marriage to Sansa. Sansa is the maid, we know this because she's the same maid as has the serpents in her hair at the feast. Tyrion is the giant, as he's often alluded to be. The castle made of snow is Sansa's innocence, because she's from the North and is "as pure as the driven snow". It could also refer to Winterfell since that's supposed to be what Tyrion gets for marrying Sansa and having a child by her. It's a bit lame, but there have been lamer double entendres in the series. Or maybe it's something that's yet to happen. I really can't see how two kids fighting in the snow is worthy of prophesy.

    Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    I'd recommend anything by Neil Gaiman or China Mieville. I loved Perdido Street Station and Good Omens is one of my favourite books ever. Nobody's mentioned Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast yet.... Give it a go, it starts with Titus Groan, then Gormenghast and then fizzles out a bit with Titus Alone, because the author died before he could finish it (there was a fourth book planned). Peake was a bit mad, even by his own admission, and so's this, Gormenghast is an ancestral seat of of the Groans, and it's a bit like Winterfell on acid...especially if it had a kitchen boy who was an unholy mix of Littlefinger and Hot Pie. It can be hard going but it boasts the best named characters in fantasy fiction, I mean you can't go wrong with people called Prunesquallor can you?

    References and Homages

    Ok, time to bring the tone down a little: I am the only one who keeps misreading "Ser Marq Piper" as "Ser Maris Piper", do we have a potato knight as well as an onion knight?
