    Catelyn Stark and Cersei Lannister are Jonahs?

    This is a half-baked idea. Do both of these characters act as the downfall of their Houses? Take Mrs. Stark as an example for the pivotal moments she plays in the plot of the story. Her seizure of Tyrion, precipitates the clash between Jaime and Ned and ultimately to Ned's death. Her actions...

    The Lands of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin & Jonathan Roberts

    Okay, this is going to be a bit of a non-review because you probably already know if you are going to be getting this or not. Basically, it's a collection of full-colour maps of Westeros and Essos, the two continents which form the setting for the Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R...

    Brienne's word of salvation

    I haven't been on the forum for very long so I'm uncertain as to if there is already a thread about this, but this thing has been bugging me ever since I read it. That word that Brienne shouted just before she was to be hanged, any guesses on what it was? And any theories why in the world does...

    Jon Snow Theory revised -- ADWD Spoilers

    I was thinking about the whole Jon murder scheme at the end... I am coming to the conclusion that Mel glamored that guy in the cell or one of his enemies. Why I say this is because Rattle snake pretended to be Mance up until he was touched by the flames. Then he started denying being Mance...

    the Dragon has 3 heads, A discussion on Prophecy

    I wanted to have a discussion about Prophecies, particulrly those that revolve around Dany, although please feel free to bring up others. I didn't see any threads dedicated to this so thought I would start one. There are 2 prophecies in particular that I wanted to address. The first can be...

    The Dragons in The Winds of Winter?

    This is post-ADWD, so anyone that hasn't read the last five books, please exit the topic to prevent reading spoilers. :) --- A Dance With Dragons ends with Dany only commanding a single dragon, with the other two chilling and burning around Meereen. I have a few questions, and...

    What if Jon Snow is just a *******?

    I know all the theories about Jon Snow... I played with some myself. I wanted him to be Rhaegar/Laurana child hide from Robert by Ned. But what if GRRM never give us an answer? Would it change anything about how you feel about Jon? The Targayen side is a long shot the more I think about it...

    Windhaven by George R.R. Martin & Lisa Tuttle

    Windhaven is a storm-wracked world consisting of a vast ocean and a small scattering of islands, home to the descendants of survivors of a spacecraft crash centuries earlier. The most efficient way of passing messages between islands is by the flyers, specially-trained men and women who can use...

    Ned Stark: Commander? Politician? Neither? Both?

    This discussion came up on the GRRM and Women Characters thread, but I didn't wish to derail that thread from its intended topic any further than we already had, so I'm starting a new thread for it....if it please my lords. :rolleyes: To C of K, in response to your post here...

    GRRM: Similar authors

    So you've read the existing books in A Song of Fire and Ice and don't know what to read yet? I thought I'd dedicate a thread where other authors can be recommended who may be of particular interest to GRRM readers, not least because their fantasy is more towards realism in fantasy, perhaps more...

    Is Jon immune from Dragon Fire?

    SPOILERS!!!!!!! Yes, I said, SPOILERS!!!!!!! I know something has been discussed on the issue before, not least regarding the L+R=J theory that asserts that Jon is half-Targ. However, now we have Jon becoming increasingly involved with Mel and the Lord of Light, who appears in part...

    A new theory (I think) about Coldhands (Spoilers up thru ADWD)

    Well it's taken me the better part of a day, but I've finally caught up (with only minimal skimming necessary) on the 26-odd pages of the Jon Snow thread that developed in my absence. That thread is so dense with detail and theories it's going to take some time to digest it all, but one of the...

    Winds of winter info-spoiler

    Found a description of a new chapter from Winds of winter.Don't know if its genuine but supposedly from a GRRM reading. For some reason I'm not allowed to post the link on her so this will have to do For the second chapter we joined Tyrion playing cyvasse with Brown Ben, while they wait for...

    New crackpot theory- Arya (ADWD SPOILERS)

    We've been speculating for years about whom the Valonqar is or will be. Cersei has always assumed it would be Tyrion, but that seems so obvious. Other possibilities have been Jaime, Bran, Kevan (now impossible), Edmure, Victarion, etc. I think this is what will happen Cersei will be found...

    A new spec world map plus GRRM on the official map book

    An excellent new world map for ASoIaF. Also interesting is that GRRM provides commentary for it. He states the map is broadly right but not in the details. He then goes on to say the new Maps of Ice and Fire book coming out in October will feature a canon world map that extends as far east as...

    A dance with Dragons

    I got the hard copy of Drance with Dragons a while ago. I know see that A Dance with dragons is in two parts dreams and dust and After the Feast in the paper back copies. I am just wondering does the hard back all ready have both these? Lewis
