So the thread seems to have died out, but I'll post anyway. I can't wait to read Bran's chapters. For some reason, I thought things would go easier for them after they met up with CH... you'd think I forgot who was writing the book. But I wonder where the 3EC lives. Does he lives in a village, maybe with the last of the Children of the Forest, or does he live alone in a cave like a hermit? I also wonder how his dwelling is fortified against the Others- it seems like the farther north they go, the more danger they should be in from the Others.
