Round 5 Asha Greyjoy spots Ser Grandfather

Asha Greyjoy, daughter of Lord Balon Greyjoy, is supposed to be on Great Wyk, in reality, she is in Oldtown, buying peaches. As she is supervising the provisions being loaded onto her longship Black Wind, she spots an old man in the crowd looking at her. It takes her a moment, but the older man’s unusually strong and graceful posture and the keen look of his blue eyes jogs her memory. He was there when they took her little brother Theon away. She recognizes Ser Barristan Selmy, recently dismissed from the Kingsguard.

Ser Barristan has travelled a long ways from Kingslanding to avoid detection and arrest. The former lord commander also knows that the woman before him, directing the work of men loading food and other supplies (some of it was purchased) onto an Ironborn longship, must be Lord Greyjoy's daughter, whom he fought 10 years ago.

Neither wants to draw attention to themselves, but the old knight walks up to the captain to have a quick word before parting ways. What words are exchanged between the Kraken’s Daughter and Barristan the Bold?

You are given the option between two acronyms for the round. Pick one of the following:

I H G W F M T R M F C

M U I W H B

Standings

1. Howlin' Howland    34+12 = 46
2. Julia H.                   38+5 = 43
3. Fragile Bird            35+6 = 41
4. Castellan                32+7 = 39
4. Lady Blizzardborn  20+19 = 39
6. Dolorous Gabe       26+7 = 33
6. rocksniffer              24+9 = 33
8. PyroclasticFlow      9+9 = 18
9. lil' ghost                  8+1 = 9

With a strong round by Howlin' Howland, he has taken over the leader's position yet again. Though do not count out anyone just yet. Julia H. and Fragile Bird are well within striking distance, others can also cause great anxiety to the leaders with one well thought out acro. We shall see how things are shaping up in Round 5.

If anyone notices a miscount, please let me know.

Round 6 Daenerys holds audience with Jaime

With Cersei now in charge in Kingslanding and the Tower of the Hand burnt to a crisp, the irrational queen sends her disagreeable, but obedient, brother Jaime on a crazy mission to apprehend the Imp. Jaime knows Varys smuggled his little brother to Essos. Jaime understands that Varys often got information from Illyrio Mopatis in Pentos and the cheesemonger once hosted Daenerys Targaryen, supplying her with dragon eggs and a potential army of Dothraki to retake the Iron Throne. Jaime infers (incorrectly) that Tyrion is headed to meet up with the young dragon queen and ally himself with her in a bid to seize the Lannister inheritance, Casterly Rock.

Fortunately, Petyr Baelish has given permission for Jaime to borrow Littlefinger’s JetpackTM for his trip to Mereen. On approach to Mereen, the jetpack malfunctions and Jaime crashes in Daznak’s Pit, where the bruised and battered Kingsguard is seized by the Brazen Beasts patrolling the area. Unfortunately, Tyrion has not made it to Mereen yet and Jaime is brought before Queen Daenerys Targaryen. Before Dany gives the word to behead the Kingslayer, what words would pass between them?

Special final round twist: There are two acronyms for this scenario, but rather than choose one acronym to submit, each character is assigned an acronym for their part in the dialogue.

For example: Ramsay and Sansa

Spoiler

Ramsay's acro: T S S B M L F L F
Sansa's acro:    V S B C O Y S

Ramsay: The shewolf shall bear me little flayers.
Sansa: Vomiting sounds better.
Ramsay: Learn fear!
Sansa: Choke on your seed!

Daenerys' acro: I W E M W S T T K T D A R

Jaime's acro: Y T M W A A L W N G E
