  1. I was trying to pm you, but it wouldn't let me!  :( I'm @sarahtebazile on Twitter.  Look me up!

      Hey there Isobel :D I shall do! Thanks.

      Oh, and I just checked, my message box is beyond full :eek: I should take care of that.

  2. I recently was introduced to the band Austra (thanks, Pandora). The lead singer, Katie Stelmanis, looks very similar to how I envision Arya.
  3. Confession: I wish the "ten" joke of this Confessions thread alluded to Cersei's ten lost dromonds. Heh. Confession 2: As much as I prefer POV stories as opposed to fHistory stories, I'm seriously looking forward to Sons of the Dragon when it comes out.
  4. Kinda Asian, kinda elvish. Think Asian depictions of Caucasians in some cartoons/artwork. Think Raiden in MGS 4, minus the "machinery" obviously.
  5. I wasn't referring to skin color, just facial structure/features.
  6. Really? I imagine Valyrians looking almost Asian. Actually, the Kardashians would resemble what I imagine the Starks looking like, minus the high cheekbones. Most Middle Easterns or Italians do.
  7. Didn't someone speculate upthread that Byron might be Harry Rivers, who supposedly died during the war in the Riverlands? Their appearances match. Harry was described as "fair-haired and comely." ETA: Or he could be one of Stannis's former knights who bent the knee after the BotB. Sansa is present in the throne room (she's mentioned going to the front of the crowd in this chapter, so quite visible to anyone approaching the throne) when honors are given and captives are made to bend the knee to Joffrey. She doesn't take note of him, but he may remember her. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Shadrich (supposedly) support Stannis at one time? Either way, as Brienne travels through the Crownlands and into the Riverlands, it seems many or most of the knights she meets are former Stannis supporters. It would be quite likely that Byron was also a former Stannis supporter.

    The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Yes, but nearly a page lamenting "his priorities" is not.

    Can we please keep this thread reduced to posting news, and not posting speculations and/or complaining that Winds is out yet?

    Puns and Wordplay

    I found a possible origin for Theon being named "Reek." I recently discovered the Icelandic legend of Arrow Odd. In his travels, he comes across two krakens. From Wiki: …these were two sea-monsters, one called Sea-Reek, and the other Heather-Back. The Sea-Reek is the biggest monster in the whole ocean. It swallows men and ships, and whales too, and anything else around. It stays underwater for days, then it puts up its mouth and nostrils, and when it does, it never stays on the surface for less than one tide. These creatures later described in an Old Norwegian scientific work Konungs skuggsjá(c. 1250), were to come to be understood as what the Norse regarded as the Kraken. This is seemingly one of the first references to the Kraken.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    What year did Doran become lord/prince of Dorne?

    Small Questions v. 10105

    The captains of the king's warships Wildwind, Prince Aemon, and River Arrow were honored next, along with some under officers from Godsgrace, Lance, Lady of Silk, and Ramshead. As near as Sansa could tell, their chief accomplishment had been surviving the battle on the river, a feat that few enough could boast. Hallyne the Pyromancer and the masters of the Alchemists' Guild received the king's thanks as well, and Hallyne was raised to the style of lord, though Sansa noted that neither lands nor castle accompanied the title, which made the alchemist no more a true lord than Varys was. A more significant lordship by far was granted to Ser Lancel Lannister. Joffrey awarded him the lands, castle, and rights of House Darry, whose last child lord had perished during the fighting in the riverlands, "leaving no trueborn heirs of lawful Darry blood, but only a bastard cousin." Who is the bastard cousin of Darry?
  13. A bird, a beast, and gold and silver. Great stone beast taking wing, breathing shadow fire? Is the gold and silver an allusion to Targaryens/Valyrians?

    Does fAegon annoy anyone else?

    Lack of Stormland support has more to do with their lack of influence at court. Per Ned's POV, KL is full of Lannisters, despite the king being the former lord of Storm's End. It was more advantageous for them to support one of Robert's brothers.
