Apologies for the delayed response. We have (generously) about 5 pages on Bran being a greenseer. That is far too little to draw any conclusions off of in terms of what the books make "exceedingly unlikely" or not. And the combination of Bloodraven immediately insisting Bran can't change the past (in a doth protest too much way) - right after Bran pretty much instantly rendered a reaction from Ned in the past when he sees him on his first try - is decent textual suggestion that Bran will, actually, affect the past in some way. Not in a stupid time-travely way like some theories you see around, but something resembling what happened with ShowHodor? Yeah, I think that's possible - maybe that's why Bloodraven was so quick to warn him. On 5/28/2019 at 4:13 PM, BalerionTheCat said: Bran will need the same to become a greenseer. They gave him seeds to eat. They gave him a throne. The cave is his place. Note the rest of the series of greenseeing Bran does at the end of his final ADWD chapter is after they remove him from the throne and he goes to sleep in his chamber, which suggests the skills can be mobile, at least for a time.
