Curled Finger Posted March 22 Share Posted March 22 1 minute ago, Mourning Star said: Not that it matters at all, but I'm a he. I would point out that Howland Reed also sought magic, but he looked to the Isle of Faces, not North of the Wall. "The lad knew the magics of the crannogs," she continued, "but he wanted more. Our people seldom travel far from home, you know. We're a small folk, and our ways seem queer to some, so the big people do not always treat us kindly. But this lad was bolder than most, and one day when he had grown to manhood he decided he would leave the crannogs and visit the Isle of Faces." "No one visits the Isle of Faces," objected Bran. "That's where the green men live." "It was the green men he meant to find. So he donned a shirt sewn with bronze scales, like mine, took up a leathern shield and a three-pronged spear, like mine, and paddled a little skin boat down the Green Fork." A thousand pardons, Ser. Perhaps the difference is in the type of guidance they sought? Perhaps proximity? Howland sent Bran's escort so perhaps it was the little Crannogman who determined where Bran should go.
