    Is Varys actually a eunuch?

    I was preparing a topic for the podcast I do with my brother (Drunk on Ice & Fire), about Varys' agenda in Winds of Winter. I thought about it and the theory that resulted is below. We all know that Varys pretends to be a defender of the Realm, but there are several reasons to suggest this may...

    A couple of quick points

    Even though I've just been through the GRRM board, tagging a load of threads, I'm struggling to find two discussions we recently had - not least as a couple of things have come to mind. 1. Ice swords - it was mentioned somewhere that The Others may have swords made of something very different...

    When Dany meets Jamie?

    This has to be this best potential meeting of two of the main characters left. For everyone who debated with me against my thoughts on Tyrion being a Targaryen, a few weeks back. I have now decided to fall on my sword, and go with Jamie and Cersei being Aerys children instead, as the...

    I, Sansa?

    Real simple question but it's a good defense to her being seen as a "potted plant". The Westerosi court certainly has many points of similarity to the Julio-Claudians, Does anyone think that she might end up being the actual writer of all this once we get to the end? Assuming a place like...

    Crackpot theory: Sansa

    Sansa has some new friends who may suspect her of being Sansa Stark and not Alayne. With a little help, might she not defy the marriage to Harry the Heir, persuade Sweet Robin to marry her, become the Lady of the Vale, announce her identity, claim Winterfell, dispose of Littlefinger with sweet...

    Crackpot theory: Tyrion parentage

    I'm currently doing a re-read of the books and after reading the dialogue between Tyrion and the Red Viper in book 3, a thought occurred to me. We all know that incest is supposed to increase the chances of disfigured and monster like characteristics of offspring, so would it be crazy to think...

    Crackpot theory on Azor Ahai/Lightbringer

    While reading in another forum on Rhaegar's motivations in eloping with Lyanna, I was thinking over the entire situation and came up with a crackpot theory that I would like to put to this forum: what if Rhaegar actually was Azor Ahai? Don't worry, I'm not suggesting that all hope is lost...

    Characters at the end of A Dance With Dragons

    Can anyone help me please with a sort of precis of each of the characters at the end of A Dance With Dragons? What I'm kind of looking for is a list of the characters and a description (or paragraph) of sorts of their current situation. I haven't time to re-read the book and I've listened...

    Windhaven, by George R.R. Martin & Lisa Tuttle

    This stand-alone 1981 novel consists of three novellas (the first two originally published separately in 1975 and 1980) and an epilogue. The stories are set on the planet of Windhaven which is almost entirely covered by ocean except for a few widely-scattered groups of islands. These islands...

    Who does Varys work for?

    I always thought Varys was a man for the Kingdom first and then the Targs. Then a few things got me thinking about it and the way Martin use misdirection throughout the series. Varys in AGOT has a conversation with Ned about loyalty to the land, to the Kingdom. Which lends the reader a...

    Tyrion Lannister

    I'm re-reading Game of Thrones and it's interesting to see a few things mentioned on that develop later in the books, not least the importance of the Red Priests in Pentos, mentioned when Dany is preparing to marry Drogo. There's also a degree of foreshadowing arguably even in the early...

    Tyrion foreshadowing in the HBO series: SPOILERS

    I know there are some theories out there regarding Tyrion's true parentage and how he could possibly be part Targ and one of the dragon riders. My question is, did HBO foreshadow this and add fuel to this fire? Here's my reasoning: 1) Varys bribing Shae to leave and explaining that he...

    My Bran Crackpot Theory

    My crackpot theory revolves around Bran. What if the only things that have actually happened, are what leads up to Bran's fall and coma, and everything that transpires is just in his dreams/vision of what is transpiring, and that at the end of the story he wakes up with this vast knowledge, and...

    The Powers of Jon Snow ** Possible ADWD Spoilers **

    It has been well established by now that Jon has some “mystical” powers. He has clearly been able to see through Ghost’s eyes, even if it is not full on warging ability (yet) like we’ve seen with Bran, though it is pretty widely assumed that Jon will get there (if he isn’t dead, but we all know...
