Yeah, I agree, the literal propechy is actually exactly why I thought it'd work. I've waffled on the whole Tyrion/Jaime = valonqar thing. It's most likely Jaime, but I really wouldn't be surprised if it was Tyrion. I'm 100% sure there are ways of showing literal prophecies without too obviously giving anything away. If the theory of Daenerys dying once she fights the White Walkers is true, then that HotU vision of her seeing Drogo and Rhaego after going beyond the Wall is a good way to do that. Robb with an animated/alive wolf's head would also be a good way of showing Robb's death. I love the idea of prophecies that are literal but don't seem it. it's awesome.
