Lord Varys Posted March 1, 2019 Share Posted March 1, 2019 30 minutes ago, DMC said: Sure. If you wanna speculate about her and/or Rhaegar and/or the KG running around beforehand I'm not gonna argue. But again, I just don't care. You seemed to care when you claimed it was ridiculous to assume that Lyanna may have just halted at the tower to give birth there because she couldn't go further or because she didn't want to give birth at a castle. 30 minutes ago, DMC said: Well, I'm not sure what "at this point" means. But, all I'm saying is it's a big part of the case, and informs the reader more than most other hints. Us having the information we got in all the material published since AGoT. 30 minutes ago, DMC said: Well, yeah. It's obviously not the main mystery for me at this point either. But we're not exactly a random sample, at all. Point is RLJ is obviously the most prominent "mystery" in the story, and you don't even need to go outside this forum, or even subforum, for proof of that. I'd agree that it is a rather interesting back story mystery. But I don't consider it particularly significant in relation to the plot we can expect in future books. 30 minutes ago, DMC said: I guess, yeah. So? I don't get why this matters. Oh, just to point out that these guys possibly knowing stuff doesn't mean they processed them properly in relation to make decisions as to who was the priority now. Because, you know, we can be pretty sure that Rhaegar's priority when he left was actually Lyanna and not a child which wasn't born yet. And while the child was still in her belly she was the whole package. I mean, think for a moment that you are one of those guys there. Do you think they would have made a king in the middle of nowhere with at best third or fourth hand rumors about what had transpired elsewhere. Even if they magically had correct and accurate information about what happened in KL and at the Trident, they could not really know that they had such information. Before they made any sort of move that would have political significance, they would actually gather more information. Basically, the obvious comparisons to those guys at the tower are, in a sense, Osha and the Reeds, with *Jon Snow* being Bran and Rickon both. I didn't see any of them crowning or even addressing either Brandon or Rickon the new King in the North. They don't even look to them in that capacity.
