Hos the Hostage Posted July 18, 2014 Share Posted July 18, 2014 I am now inclined to think Mance may actually be behind the letter, I can't think of why Ramsay would be so pertinent as to ask specifically about Stannis's family AND Mance's, sure he's a nut but he's a well-informed nut it seems which is a bit suspicious given Abel is in the guise of Rattleshirt and event he spearwives may not be aware it's really him.Mance writing the Pink Letter is a possibility, thank you for quoting that post which summarizes the argument. But was Mance in the guise of Rattleshirt in WF? Him being a singer and all fits Mance better than anyone. Surely the six spearwives knew, at least after they set out from Castle Black. The wording of Pink Letter is highly indicative of an author other than Ramsay, I agree. Only "I want my Reek" matches Ramsay. When Mance asked Jon why he turned his cloak, Jon wriggles out of the question by saying about how he hates his bastard status. Mance was convinced by that. Although he later found Jon to be a traitor, one thing he knows for sure is the title "Bastard" is Jon's vulnerable point. Mance working with the Northern Lords is something I would never have expected, but in the given the dire circumstances, with Mance's talking skills, may be.
