  1. Westeros is medieval realpolitik, while Essos is sword and sorcery. I am much more interested in realpolitik.
  2. Did an AI come up with this theory? How did you come to this conclusion?
  3. I was genuinely upset by the Muppet names TWOIAF. it took me out of the story and made me feel rediculous for spending thousands of hours on these books. then I got over it and read the books 13x. Not joking lol
  4. This is the first post in an ongoing biweekly 36-part series of Selyse Florent appreciation posts. What do you like best about Selyse? Is it her 'stash or her style? She may be a lady of few words; but when she speaks, people often do not listen. This quote shows judgment on her part, especially the part that judges. Westeros' First Family shares the skill of judgment; in judging each other together. Some in the fandom, namely me, call that passage The Clutch That Was Promised. She was also the talk of the town when she had her good name besmirched by terrible propagandists. Jon Snow also had thoughts about the Baratheon's marriage bed. Our dear Selyse is not only the talk of the town about her marriage bed, but she has people measuring up their own anatomy in comparison to hers. What do you dear readers love most about our dear Selyse? Inquiring minds want to know. P.S. The Patchface incident is still too painful for me to read about. If you do write about our dear fool, please do it in euphemisms.
  5. The IceBrandon: “Winter Is Flying” “Winter is coming” means the ice dragon named Winter is coming. Bloodraven via Bran wakes the icedragon named Winter in the black pool of Winterfell. Bran is the King of Winter the ice dragon. Bran has already flown as the ice dragon in his dream where he gave his (corn) seed and his soul to the crow, Bloodraven. Bran died and was reborn with the magic of the ground and weirwood roots just as Dany died and was reborn by fire. This entire story is set in play by the conflict when Jaime threw Bran from the tower and their conflcit will frame the story’s conclusion. Nightbringer: The Hammerhorn of the Waters Daenerys summons the red comet to strike the moon which brings the Long Night. The Hammer of the Waters may be a horn; Euron’s horn. The Hammerhorn of the Waters will be sounded by Daenerys “the Unburnt”, who is the only person who can possibly sound it three times without burning from within to bring about the apocalypse. Azor Ahai’s sword may be a horn as an asteroid strikes the earth like a sword. Chunks of moon falls to Earthos bringing plumes of smoke to block out the sun, bringing darkness. Simultaneously the moon is moved closer to Earthos and it’s increased gravity brings flooding and cold. The flooding freezes over and Westeros becomes the Land of Always Winter. Dany is a Nissa Nissa figure to the man who makes her sound the Hammerhorn one of the “heroes” prophesied to come again. Azor Ahannister & The Others That Were Promised Jamie is one of the remanifestations of Azor Ahai reborn. “Golden hand” means Lord of Light in Valyrian. Jamie will forge the blue-white flamed Lightbringer through (Brienne) killing Lady Stoneheart, secondly he will fulfill both the valonqar and Azor Ahai prophesies by killing Cersei and lastly through killing his love Brienne he will forge Lightbringer. Dragonsteel may be forged with ironwood charcoal. The fire of the dragon not the fire from the dragon is needed to forge it, namely the life soulfire of the dragon. The Hooded Man of Winterfell Revealed This provides the basis for my “For The Night” theory listed below. Theon is the sleepwalking killer of Yellow Dick by being under the glasscandle control of Euron, the hooded man of Winterfell. “For The Night” Jon’s death was not a murder. It was a blood sacrifice to wake the stone dragon… that is made of ice. Euron is the nighwalker that used a glass candle to control the movments and conscious actions of Theon the nightwalkee. The body language of Jon’s killers tells the truth but words lie. Brienne The “More Beautiful” Why Brienne is Jamie’s Nissa Nissa. The Stone Dragon is Made of Ice The stone dragon Melissandre wants to wake is Winter the ice dragon. The Ice Dragon Must Have Three Heads Aside from Winter the enormous ice dragon, there may be two more ice dragons in the cave with Bloodraven. Lemony Lemongate: Daenerys and The Three Heads Daenerys know nothing. The house with the red door was not in Braavos, but Lemonwood, the seat of House Dalt in Dorne. Daenerys may be a child of three different siblings Winter Fell: Death of Azor Ahai & The IceBrandon Jamie is one of the reborn manifestations of Azor Ahai. Jamie will thrust a flaming Lightbringer sword into Winter the IceBrandon melting the ice dragon and extinguishing Lightbringer in the process. When Lightbringer’s fire goes out, so does Jamie’s. Jamie was blood of the dragon, but now his fire has gone out. The Game of Horns: Blow or Get Blown The Horn of Winter helps wake or control Winter the ice dragon. The Horn of Joramun is Euron’s/Dany’s horn which she sounds three times signaling the coming of the Others. This horn heralds the red comet to strike the moon causing darkness, cold and flooding. The crash frees an unfathomably large world serpent, the sea dragon Joramun who is only partially(!) frozen in the Wall. The Stepstone islands are scales of this enormous sea dragon. When the Horn of Joramun (the Hammerhorn) is sounded these mountains will blow in the wind like leaves. The future Stromking will defeat the enormous serpent Joramun. The Horn that Wakes the Sleepers brings enormous giants back into the world. We have never seen true giants. These giants dwarf Wun Wun by a mile. There may be stone, fire and ice giants either metaphorically or literally. Flight of The IceBrandon: Chapter Review A line by line chapter review of Bran’s flight as the ice dragon. Garden of Edenos: A Tale of Two Trees This is a tale of two trees, the song of black ironwood and white weirwood;, the tree of knowledge and the tree of eternal life. The Lace Serpent: Duskendale & The Night’s Queen The Lace Serpent Lady Serala is a Metaphor for the Nights Queen. The Secret Second Wall There is a second secret Wall at the Bloody Gate and Lord Commander Brynden Tully is in charge of it. The Boneway in Dorne may be a third secret wall too. Very Fishy: Osha Turncloak Osha may be a Deep One and kidnapped Rickon. Shaggy Dogs eyes are green like wildfire which is associated with water. The Halfdivorce Tyrion is still married to Tysha and his marriage to Sansa is nullified. Petyr knows because Tysha works in his brothel at the Happy Port. Tyrion will help the mountain clansmen take over the Vale. The IcePriestess of Asshai Melissandre unknowingly worships ice and not fire. GRRM commissioned a custom Melissandre figurine in ice colors. The Ruse of Bolton Roose Bolton may skinflaynge into Robb and “surprise Jon at the Wall”. Roose The Rat Cook Roose may be a Rat Cook. The CIA: Citadel Intelligence Agency History isn’t written by the victors. History is written by the maesters. In ways great and small, the Citadel has altered our understanding of history for their own mysterious and seemingly anti-magic nepharious purposes. Robin Arryn’s shaking sickness is not epilepsy but drug withdrawal from sweetsleep which is used to both manipulate and then kill him. The Citadel may also be a Rat Cook. Tyrion & Samwell Are The Riddlers of The Sphinx Tyrion and Sam may be the riddlers of the Sphinx. Tyrion’s is missing a nose like the Egyptian Sphinx and his riddle is where do whores go. Sam is the one posing the riddles about the riddler and is thus The Riddler. Beyond Horrible: The Meaning of “The Dornishman’s Wife” The song doesn’t mean what we think it means. It is a song about the Long Night. Aemon Targaryen: The Icedragon Knight Jon’s true name is Aemon. He will come back othered. Jon becomes Aemon the Icedragonknight atop Winter the icedragon. Fire, Ice and Sea: The Three Heads of The Dragon Revealed The three heads of the dragon are fire, ice and sea dragons. Fire and Bloodwyrms Dany is blood of the wyrm. The Seven Children The squirrel people of the forest in Bran’s cave are named after the Seven gods. The Old Gods are The New. The Seven and the Old Gods are the same religion. We Are The World… We Are The Children Children grow up to become men. Tormund Giantsbane: Husband to She-Bears Tormund may have slept with Alysane Mormont either in human form or if she skinchanged into a bear. He is the father of Alysane’s two cubs. unOberyn Star-Eyes Martell Oberyn Martell is Simeon Star-Eyes Maury Povich and The Baratheon Tapestries. The Baratheon Tapestries are like Ned’s book of family lineages to show that Myrcella and Tommen are bastards because they don’t have black hair. Nymeria And Her 10,000 Wolves Nymeria will lead a pack of wolves at the Wall. They may fight ice spiders. Did The Red Meteor Cause The Long Night? This post was the basis for my Hammerhorn of The Waters post. The Others Are Not The True Enemy The gods are the enemy, not the Others. The gods are those who have eaten of both the tree of knowledge and the tree of eternal life. Dany is a god and thus “the enemy”, per se. This will be fifty shades of greyscale: beyond good and evil. All sides in the conflict will have just reasons for their unjust actions. This post builds from the Garden of Edenos. unCivil War for The Dawn The Long Night will echo the battles between the “Greystarks”, Starks and Bolton’s as it did previously. The Purpose of Ice Spiders Spiders climb Walls. R’hllor and The Lord of Light Revealed. They Are Different People. Bloodraven is R’hllor and Jamie is the Lord of Light. Brave Arya Stark: A Song To Make Us Weep Arya is Brave Danny Flint Mad-Axe Revealed unWill will be back. Jafer Flowers Is… Gennifer Flowers
  6. You are right. Lenore is the Many-Faced-Minion.
  7. Laenore Velaryon is an homage to GRRM's minion Lenore. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Laenor_Velaryon
  8. I found a nod to Shakespeare in ASOIAF: Which was a nod to:
  9. Snarks are an homage to Louis Caroll's "The Hunting of the Snark" Snarks are "distinguishing those that have feathers, and bite" and "from those that have whiskers, and scratch."
  10. I was mercilessly mocked for it in 2015 but here we are. IceBrandon has come.
  11. Gilbert of the Vines, the founder of House Redwyne is a reference to the 1993 movie What's Eating Gilbert Grape.
  12. According to a SSM, In 2008 GRRM said he wanted to write about Baldwin VI "the Leper" King of Jerusalem: I think JonCon pays homage to Baldwin VI "the Leper" that GRRM wanted to write about so much.
  13. The Mountains of the Moon was a movie starring Ian Glen (Jorah Mormont) that came out in 1990: http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0100196/ That would have left it fresh in the mind of GRRM as he was worldbuilding in 92/93. It's also a mountain in Africa: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountains_of_the_Moon_(Africa) This may be an inspiration for the mountainous Gates of the Moon.
  14. God's Eye is a lake acting as a moat and I think it is an homage to Larry Niven author of the 1975 book The Mote in God's Eye. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mote_in_God's_Eye It was listed as one of the 100 best sci-fi books of all time. http://www.npr.org/2011/08/11/139085843/your-picks-top-100-science-fiction-fantasy-books I also think Tywin's sidewhiskers plays homage to Issac Asimov, who through like 4 marriages is a half stepcousin six times removed.
  15. Side-wiskers make it seem more like a young Rodrik Cassel
  16. That's what I thought. This episode basically all but confirmed his Targy-ness. You can play the mental gymastics that they were on a hunger strike, but not why they didn't burn him. I think the guy who told Ned to give him another go is a young Robert Baratheon.
  17. Hodor's name: "Wachu talkin' bout Willis?" Which dragon did Tyrion free first?
  18. Endgame of Thrones https://endgameofthrones.com/
  19. I think Ser Shadrich the Mad Mouse is an homage to Mighty Mouse. From the wiki: "Ser Shadrich, known as Shadrich of the Shady Glen and the Mad Mouse, is a hedge knight. His coat of arms is a large white mouse with red eyes on bendy brown and blue Now, take a look at the iconic intro pic off Mighty Mouse https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f8/Superraton.jpg Red, brown, blue and bendy, check, check and check. The explanation for the colors and the design is because "the brown is for the lands he has crossed and the blue the rivers." Now look at the intro to Mighty Mouse Mister Trouble never hangs aroundWhen he hears this mighty sound"Here I come to save the day!"That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!Yessir, when there is a wrong to rightMighty Mouse will join the fightOn the sea or on the landHe gets the situation well in hand!So, though we are in danger, we never despair'Cause we know that where there's danger he is thereHe is there, on the land, on the sea, in the air!We're not worryin' at allWe're just listenin' for his call"Here I come to save the day!"That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!We're not worryin' at allWe're just listenin' for his call"Here I come to save the day!"That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way! Here is Andy Kaufman's iconic rendition
  20. Kasporio the Clever is Gary Kasparov. Also biting your lip when you're lying is a Bill Clintonism.
