Tucu Posted August 28, 2021 Share Posted August 28, 2021 3 hours ago, Springwatch said: Fascinating topics; I just got to say a few things - Snow is a friendly force to the Starks, isn't it? They fight with snow weapons, they build snow castles, there are snow sentinels standing on Winterfell. Bran is hidden from the wights when a helpful blanket of snow falls on him (pointed out by Leaf). Tentative conclusion: The snow is hurting Stannis because Winterfell hates Stannis. And why not? Stannis did try to kill Robb. On Stannis: I've thought for a while now that Stannis is the winter storm between two summers. That's why Robert favours Renly, and why both of them are at ease with cheating Stannis of his 'rightful inheritance'. No-one likes winter, right? So why not bypass it? ETA I liked seeing this: Robert was that storm. I like the idea of Bob as the raging summer storm I wonder if that Winter in the middle marks a period of weakness and humiliation in his reign. He marries Cersei in 284, Joffrey is born in 286. Early in his reign Oberyn was plotting to crown Viserys. Around 284 Balon started building the Iron Fleet in preparation for his rebellion (according to the world book). Then Robert gets his mojo back; Edric Storm is born is 287 and in 289 Ned joins Bob to crush the Greyjoy Rebellion Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
