    Ironborn Mythos (Pt 3): The Monomyth

    Windblown...it is what a storm will do to you. If you are windblown you are fazed by the wind. Garth is the storm in a sense and was a storm maker. A word like stormbreaker sounds like something acting against the storm rather than for it. A stormcrow could just as much be about someone affected by or surviving a storm as is could about making one.

    Ironborn Mythos (Pt 3): The Monomyth

    The coat of many colors is the coat of the tattered prince. The exiled Valyrian looking prince who escaped his death and joined a sellsword company. He first joined the second sons (you know, the one with the broken sword for a sigil) before founding "the windblown". The other coat of many colors can be found in the Summer Islander who brought Sam back from drowning and the exiled Summer Islander at court. Unchained, you are not far off. I think GRRM is telling us quite a bit about Azor Ahai with the sellsword companies with names like the Stormbreakers, the Stormcrows, the Windblown, the Golden Company and the Company of the Cat.

    Dissecting Names

    I can recall LmL found a similarity of Allyria (Dayne) to Valyria. I think Illyrio is like the male version of Allyria.

    POEMS (or other sundry quotes) that remind you of ASOIAF -- V2

    I like this idea especially when we see in Bran's dream a woman doing exactly this, a naked woman emerging from the pool heavy with child praying for a son to exact vengeance.

    Hey RR! Im back in the forums, thanks for the tag. You have Lemore nailed, one thing I might add is she is also a venus figure in the fashion of the maiden bathing espied by Florian the fool, and Dany bathing in her introductory chapter. There is a reason our writer had her bathing naked in addition to showing she has stretch marks. This gives her the maiden coming from the water symbolism. Any time you see a naked woman bathing (*cough, Brienne, *cough, Osha, *cough), we are given our Morningstar/evenstar love goddess symbolism which @LmL might see as significant from an astronomy standpoint.

    Con of Thrones 2018

    No, she didn't listen and she almost died because of it. The advise the Pree vision was giving was a good. Instead she didn't take it and remembered what the real Pree told her and she stayed on the course which almost led to her death. That wasn't Pree, it was someone trying to help her because the door he showed her was the same door she was able to use to finally escape.

    Hey LiveFirst! Ebony isn't at the stage of being petrified wood. Remember, Tytos Blackwood states it takes a few thousand years for weirwood to petrify. While the only ebony I have seen has been in pictures, I do know that ebony is still at the stage of still being wood. I would suggest that was not Pree in the vision. If you recall, the vision of Pree was showing Dany the actual way out. Many speculate that was bloodraven trying to get Dany out of there because when. Once inside (after not heading the advise to leave) the undying which are much like Greenseers turned blue by the Evening trees try to overtake her. We know the vision of Pree was giving solid advice because Danny was able to escape using the same door the Pree vision was telling her to use. The real Pree was trying to get her in the house since he met her.

    Yep, I am for sure smelling what you are stepping in. I would argue that Garth and the Grey king were separate, but contemporary of one another. I have a post you might be interested in.

    Connecting House Hightower/Dayne AKA The Dawn Empire mirrors

    No doubt it was once fertile. If Ulthos and Leng around Asshai are any indicator, Asshai was once heavily forested at one time. I feel there is a good chance the Safron Straits separating Ulthos and Asshai was once quite smaller seeing as there is evidence around the rest of the world to suggest that water levels rose. Just something to chew on with the Dothraki legend.

    Also, what about Vaes Dothrak? The city is supposed to be made large enough for all the Dothraki to converge at one time because of a certain prophesy. Maybe Asshai had a similar prophesy. Most of the halls, even the largest, seemed deserted. “Where are the people who live here?” Dany asked. The bazaar had been full of running children and men shouting, but elsewhere she had seen only a few eunuchs going about their business. “Only the crones of the dosh khaleen dwell permanently in the sacred city, them and their slaves and servants,” Ser Jorah replied, “yet Vaes Dothrak is large enough to house every man of every khalasar, should all the khals return to the Mother at once. The crones have prophesied that one day that will come to pass, and so Vaes Dothrak must be ready to embrace all its children.”

    Hi Great Elk, You have made and excellent observation. I also believe the instances of 'ebony' in the House of Black and White and the house of the Undying are actually shade of the evening tree. I think the House of the undying is a huge hint: aching. She recalled that the House of the Undying Ones had seemed to have no towers. Finally the stair opened. To her right, a set of wide wooden doors had been thrown open. They were fashioned of ebony and weirwood, the black and white grains swirling and twisting in strange interwoven patterns. They were very beautiful, yet somehow frightening. The blood of the dragon must not be afraid. Dany said a quick prayer, begging the Warrior for courage and the Dothraki horse god for strength. She made herself walk forward. It seems the writer is trying to describe these doors as an illusion to being made of one wood instead of a two separate woods pieced together with descriptions such as grains twisting and swirling? It is almost as if it is made from the same slab of wood . It makes a great deal of sense. Meaning Dany is sitting the equivalent of an Essosi weirwood throne. I had actually toyed with the idea you were mentioning and came to the same conclusion you had, which make a great deal of literary sense when we have white weirwood doors with black 'ebony' faces that remind Arya of a heart tree. At the top she found a set of carved wooden doors twelve feet high. The left-hand door was made of weirwood pale as bone, the right of gleaming ebony. In their center was a carved moon face; ebony on the weirwood side, weirwood on the ebony. The look of it reminded her somehow of the heart tree in the godswood at Winterfell. The doors are watching me, she thought.
