  1. This question is very interesting but not in the sense in the sense you mean as Brandon's bastard. Martin goes out of his way to show the oversight of everyone on the fate of common children. The Orphans at the Crossroads Inn, The Orphans of the Greenblood, The Pisswater Prince, "The Frey boy screaming at Arya because she dared to compare the death of her two brothers to him not marrying his princess." So what did happen to Wylla the Wet Nurse's baby? I think the answer is something we are overlooking because we are concerned with the "special" babies. I just can't by this. Howland was indebted to Lyanna and was also his friend. I tend to speculate that Ned and Howland became friends after surviving the ToJ and like Robert and Ned grew back together because of her death, I suspect so did Howland and Ned. And therefore I would think Howland would step up and care for his deceased friend and defender's child instead of the bastard daughter of Brandon Stark, whom he barely knew. And the green eyes, I thought were the mark of a dreamer and seer. Wyman likes power and to have a secret of this magnitude in his arsenal, why didn't Wyman use this to secure a match between Winterfell and White Harbor? Ned by this time had an heir in Robb and Wynafryd was already born to Wyllis.
  2. I think it would be ironic if she married someone representative of the Grey King or the Ironborn, since she is a mermaid. Someone like the Blackfish or even her grandfather's cousin Ser Marlon.
  3. You are forgetting about Wylla of Wyl, who is a folk hero in Dorne. I always felt that with this reference, the usage of Wylla as Jon's mother was pointing at Lyanna. Due to the speculation that she was the Knight of the Laughing Tree. Wylla Manderly to me is pointing at the Archon of Tyrosh's daughter, who played with Arianne at the Water Gardens and at Sansa due to the dying of hair.

    Darkstar is a Brightflame

    What I don't understand about the Brightfyre theory in relation to the Blackfyres is, since we are assuming that Bloodraven has seen the future with a Blackfyre on the throne especially if he is working and trying to stop Winter from coming and the Blackfyre sitting on the throne was a signal for Winter; if Aerion's line was involved, why didn't Bloodraven do everything to extinguish that line as well as the Blackfyres? Bloodraven seems like he would fall in the category with Prince Daemon Targ and Tywin.

    The Queenmaker, Feast 21 I don't know if anyone pointed this out but his description always seemed like an echo of Ned cleaning Ice to me.

    That was @ravenous reader who caught that.

    Now that is an interesting theory on Baelish. That seems like he would make a play for Riverrun. It is the site of the formation of his obsession but I don't put it past him to go North afterward as it would mean the greatest insult to Brandon Stark, his eternal enemy. Thanks for the vids. I will check them out tomorrow when I have time.

    Dunstonbury is a clever way of hiding a reference to House Dustin of Barrowtown where the first king is buried.

    The Hungry Mouth of Rivers:Manderlys and Merlings

    ah ok I understand now. I was confused for a moment. Hmm....I can see Baelish and Manderly on opposing sides of that issue. The situation would be like the comment Tyrion made about how droll it would be to set Myrcella against Tommen. Some would side with Sansa and others with Jon and either Baelish or Manderly would prosper.

    The Hungry Mouth of Rivers:Manderlys and Merlings

    Not a ridiculous notion that Manderly and Baelish will team up. But I wonder how that would work? I feel like the team up would have to be extremely specific like Manderly being married to Sansa which I don't put past him since he asked to marry another mermaid/greenseer symbol person, Lady Donella Hornwood nee Manderly. But I don't see it ending in a very good way for either side like Joffrey's assassination ended with both parties satisfied. Honestly it seems like they are mirrors to each other. Manderly and Lady Dustin mirroring Baelish and Olenna/Sansa which also mirrors Varys and Illyrio. If you look they mirror quite well. Varys and his status as a eunuch corresponds to Olenna and Lady Dustin. Sansa has the Tully half fish thing going so that makes her a mermaid like the Manderly granddaughter and they both color their hair. Illyrio due to their physical appearance mirrors Manderly. Baelish and Manderly are associated with lamprey eels meaning that they are slippery characters. And Baelish, Manderly, and Illyrio can be counted having been masters of merchants. But poor Davos if this is the case with Rickon. A pointless journey for the onion knight. ????????

    I think their physical appearance is indicative of their position as being the lords of merchants and the overindulgence is the manifestation of abuse and corruption of the economy. Rather than fat cat bankers, we have fat jolly mermen. Littlefinger's first job was managing the customs of Gulltown and while Petyr, physically does not reflect the abuse and corruption of the economy that we suspect, he did wield enough power to cause chaos where he himself has admitted that he thrives. And both Lord Manderly and Petyr are associated with lamprey. Petyr loves lamprey pie and Manderly is mocked as Lord Lamprey.

    I tend to think Arya ate human flesh during her time in Flea Bottom with the Bowl O' Brown termed by Tyrion as Singer's Stew. While I am not discounting the influence of Philomela myth on the pregnant Woman praying for revenge in front of the heart tree, the cannibalism in association with the North is influenced by the myth of Lycaon. It unites wargs, cannibalism, breaking of guest rite, curse from the gods and as a bonus Lycaon's only daughter Callisto was transformed into a bear so that brings the Mormonts. It isn't a coincidence that Varamyr's bear is a she-bear. Honestly the cannibalism for me means the making of monsters.

    First of all, This up here makes absolutely no sense. (Pun fully intended.) Hiemal's comment about the cent-tree/sentry is the coalescence of why the Others are akin to the NWs members. The Others are lightning struck cent-trees that are covered in ash. The Night's King the father of the Others was a watcher on the wall, a sentry and he came down from the wall like a falling star and crowned himself king. And because the damn Pennytree is in between Barba's/Missy's teats it is at the heart of what is going on. So it is disrespectful to act out this way.

    And in the Rumplestiltskin story, he spins straw into gold. Jaime having beaten gold hair. That might be related. Doreah is from Lys so that may be related. Btw, one thing I wanted to add that the straw hat is also like the lime stiffened hair and the whitewashing of the weriwood trees. All of those things protect from the sun.
