BreakinTheWall Posted January 21, 2016 Share Posted January 21, 2016 Hey everyone, first topic here. I had an idea while reading the Dreams and prophecies article on the Wiki. I really hope I'm not repeating someone else's theory. Anyway, one prophecy in particular (Bran) reads as such: He saw his father pleading with the king, his face etched with grief. He saw Sansa crying herself to sleep at night, and he saw Arya watching in silence and holding her secrets hard in her heart. There were shadows all around them. One shadow was as dark as ash, with the terrible face of a hound. Another was armoured like the sun, golden and beautiful. Over them both loomed a giant in armour made of stone, but when he opened his visor, there was nothing inside but darkness and thick black blood. As I understand it, the first two shadows are generally accepted to be the Hound and the Kingslayer, whereas the third has generated more speculation. Building upon a previous theory stating that Lord Varys is actually a member House Blackfyre, I'd like to think that Varys is the giant whose shadow looms over the others. If Varys is indeed concealing his true identity as a Blackfyre, then a visor could very well be symbolic of a mask, his Varys persona, he is currently wearing. Thus removing it only to find darkness and thick black blood comes as no surprise as the Blackfyre's coat of arms is a black dragon. Blackfyres are Targaryens with black blood. Varys is Blackfyre's blood, so he has black blood. To state his shadow looms over certain individuals (Ned, Sansa, Arya, the Hound, Jaime, etc.) is almost a given, considering how major a player he is and how many lives he has already affected so far. There you go, first new topic, my little idea. Thoughts? P.S. English is not my first language, I really did my best here, be nice please! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
