The Dark Re-Read Project - "Well if I gotta be damned, you know I want to be damned dancing to ASOIAF with you!"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone,

First and foremost ... I want to apologize for doing this so late. My heart meant to do this weeks ago.

Second ... f**k the Bat Out of Hell (aka the coronavirus) that started this global apocalypse!!

I pray everyone is healthy or trying to get healthier. I want to thank all our medical & supermarket soldiers that are supporting man-kind in this crisis. I live in New York City, and we are hit pretty bad here. For most of us in the world, we have no choice but to stay home. I'm no one special, unlike the folks fighting in the front-lines, but if I can give a reason for everyone to stay at home (like re-reading the 5 ASOIAF books), I think it can help a little bit in these tough times.

So I invite EVERYONE to a private Dark re-read of ASOIAF, where I will point out a few things in the books (sorry, not everything, and no Top Secret Theory too).
If anyone is interested and bored at home, you can private message me and I will add you into this secretive GROUP-chat.
I won't elaborate here since I do want this to be kept a secret from the casual public eyes.

If my mailbox is full, I will try to clear it as much as I can. I hope the logistics of doing this on Messenger isn't messy.

Lastly ... George ... if you are reading this, I want to apologize for doing this so early. I was going to hold this off until all your books came out. But given the current global circumstances, these are strange times indeed (most likely caused by a f**cking bat). People are getting sick and losing their lives. Me and my family are okay for now, but where I live I constantly see flashing lights and hear the wail of ambulance sirens. It hints at the end of the world, and there is nothing we can do to combat this, except staying home. I hope this Dark Re-Read Project can bear some of that load by keeping people home and in your books. And I intend to disband this project once the morning light have driven out this ... bat, and the world returns to normal again.
I don't know if you will be angry, or you may feel some of the pressure relieved off your back, but seriously ... bravo. Thank you for giving us A Song of Ice and Fire ... a masterpiece for the history of all literature.

Hey guys,

As the coronavirus is loosening its grip in the world, I am planning to dissolve and delete the Dark Re-Read Project very soon.
I can humbly say that no one joined the club since I created it lol.
I realized I made a mistake in the first post.
I failed to state that this Re-Read project does not require starting at AGOT Prologue ... but it could be in any chapter in any book.
I could be on a Sam ASOS chapter, you can be on Jaime AFFC chapter, another person can be on a Bran AGOT chapter ... it doesn't matter for the discussions.
If you want to join, this is your last chance to discuss advanced topics not named Top Secret.

And just because I call this the Dark Side of ASOIAF, doesn't mean you have to sell your soul to join in. :P

Hi @The Map Guy - always enjoy reading your ideas, but I haven't managed a re-read in decades - more like random ideas applied to random chapters. Also it's pretty quiet on the main board at the moment - real life intruding perhaps - so a postponement might be shrewd.

What is the dark perspective though? Can I apply it to my next random chapter?

Thanks!

I labeled this Dark because I have uncovered an extra evil plot, an extra core character and an extra core element in A Song of Ice and Fire, BUT NO ONE EVER WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT as if they would be embarrassed by discussing it publicly. I wanted to create a club where we can talk about it privately. I thought it would be convenient to talk about it with people stuck at home during the pandemic ... as the "bat out of hell" coronavirus threatened to destroy the world.

Anyways the TV Show failed to account for this extra plot, extra character and extra element ... and look how that turned out?
I have created a ADOS prediction that accounted for all these things (before GoT S8 aired) ... and I feel like it is a million times better than the TV show, and pretty accurate to what will really happen in the books.
I even bet that once ADOS comes out many many years from now, we will be re-discussing everything from this Dark Club.

And yes, you can apply our discussion into ANY random ASOIAF chapter. I can't say anymore, it's classified.

This club is no longer active as of today.

I'm sure the topics here will be re-visited after ADOS & FaB2 are released many many years from now.

In case I am not around then for whatever reasons, I would to take credit being the first one to uncover a game that GRRM hides in ASOIAF, making the re-reads of each novel extra fun :)

I'm confused, what is the secret evil plot?

That Bloodraven tricked Bran & Jojen to journey North to be hostages of the Others.
Bloodraven, aka the three-eyed crow, has always wanted the Iron Throne for himself (D&D are stupid) ... and his plan was get it with deceit, hostages, magic and with the help of the White Walkers.

Hodor & Meera are the descendants of Dunk & Egg that escorted Bran to Brynden Rivers.
Brienne & Jaime are the descendants of Dunk & Egg that will rescue Bran from Brynden Rivers.

Bran is a very very important person in ASOIAF, because ...
 

Spoiler


Winter is Coming to the rescue!

Bran (Stark) & Jaime (Lannister-Targaryen) will be one of several Songs of Ice & Fire:


Revving up the icy gold dragon, Hear it Howl & Roar!

The Lion under tension, begging the Wolf to warg & go!

Highway to the Dragon Zone!!!

Ride into the Dragon Zone!!!

 

Who has the better story now for Bran the Broken?

(And no ... Bran will just be Bran in the end ... no awkward creepiness. It was the three-eyed crow that wanted the throne, aka Bloodraven. After every Targaryen is killed, Westeros will become a republic ... no more monarch or kings or queens. The name "Targaryen" is 1/3 based on the name "Tarquins", the last monarch of Rome, before Rome became a republic without any kings)
