I think he's close to finally dying and wants to take over brans body but I do believe he will fail. Maybe I worded that poorly. No, Bloodraven may try to take Brans body in the same manner as the others use Craster's sons. Ah gotcha, yea I could definitely see that being a possibility. I just think Bran is especially attractive to Bloodraven because of his especially strong magic blood, but I think that this greed for power will be his undoing, as I think whatever it is that Bran has will be too strong for Bloodraven to take or control. What I like the most about your theory is that it makes Bolt-On absolutely possible.
That is totally correct. Just to feed the fire a little on that one: Remember how Varamyr and Orell teach us that trained skinchangers can sense each other. Melisandre has red eyes , red hair too, that is most likely dyed of course. But eyes can't be dyed. Are her superior abilities from the mark?
Yep, I think she has already been revived through the "kiss of fire" which has more to do with the kissee than the kisser. I think it's probably a prerequisite for the shadowbinding skills. I really, really like this, even though I disagree with some parts. It's well formulated, for one. Same as our own physics, really, just In that case, Ironborn aren't quite wrong when they claim they are older, came from West, came from Sea. Why not have R'Hollor be another "hive mind" like what the CotF have, which would explain the similarity of those two sets of "visions"?
It would make sense that lords and kings became lords and kings by being stronger, so that's why their "blood" has power, and not the other way around. It's not Kingsblood Mel needs, but "Power Blood". We do know something like that happens with Giants, so why not here? Though as you say, the Pact might have been done in a different way, and FM learned from CotF either way. The legends of seriously Old Kings I have most issue with: I even tried to go through the various banners of FM vs Andals to see if FM have animals more often, sadly it was bust: All agree on the Essos part, except that it might be Dothraki shunned those forests because CotF skinchangers can take away their horses from them at crucial moments.
Which is my personal tinfoil on why Valyria avoided Westeros for so long. I never saw the idea that dragonlords might be skinchangers, so kudos on that: Pity that George scraped the idea of Dany going there looks like curse the lost 5-year gap! What do you think about the idea that whatever gave us Long Night and broke the seasons and possibly turned magic users against each other?
Fire vs Ice, Water vs. Drogon was tethering from a couple of spears, in both show and book. I'm saying that Ice seems seriously over-powered already by the end of ADWD, and I doubt that the end of saga will be some easy-handshake, with little conflict against Ice. But not fast and not by sacrificing a single Jon Snow. Though, we don't know either way, so any speculation might be true in the end. I submit that the leader of the White Walkers is the powerful direwolf warg, the original baby taker himself, builder of castles and giant ice walls, with the ancestral sword "Ice", Brandon the Builder.
If you're right and this means that Bran the Builder counts as alive then this quote:. As for the Night's King the form I prefer , in the books he is a legendary figure, akin to Lann the Clever and Brandon the Builder, and no more likely to have survived to the present day than they have. I know Preston Jacobs believes the leader of the white walkers to be a or the Brandon too. Not sure if he's ever done a video addressing that specifically though. I agree only to the extent that any magic isn't validation of any religion in the story, as a wide variety of magic exists.
I do not believe that it will be GRRM's style or taste to either validate or eliminate the existence of the gods. They will still be ambiguous by the end of the series.

Unfortunately, this post is another example where people take every myth, legend, folktale and prophecy as factual in the secondary world of the books. The bulk of these tales are to provide colour and richness to the world - like our own, each community has its own tales. The bulk of them will be just that, without any manifestation in the books to come, but we don't know which.
GRRM vetted the material so it didn't contradict or spoil the plot he is planning. Otherwise the purpose of that book is to fill in details of the world, for those who want them, that otherwise are not key to the story. Elio and Linda did not write any new material whatsoever - they've been very clear about this. What they did was just what they have been doing for years - compiling the random info into organized categories. That's basically grunt work that George doesn't have time for. All of the eastern sections was written by George.
When our author takes the time to write hundreds of thousands of words, I don't see how anyone can dismiss it as window dressing. You're basically saying that George is wasting his time, which I have to take umbrage at. Not saying YOU made this claim - you came close - but it's out there, and it's rubbish. No, of course not - it represents the knowledge of the maesters.
But that's no different than all the other ASOIAF material, where we are only ever given the info of the POV we are reading, and we have to decide what is true and not. Finally, your assertion about some myths being irrelevant - what's that based on? Anything other than your own opinion? I can't imagine how anyone would even make this claim in such a declarative fashion.
How would you know what myths are relevant to the main story? How would you know that some are just window dressing? I'm not trying to be mean - but you're simply making baseless assertions here. It seems you got bad information - and I know people are running around saying Elio and Linda wrote most of it, that it's just filler, etc etc. It's all very clearly laid out, and Elio has said the same thing multiple times on Westeros.
The stuff written by GRRM is clearly delineated by being quoted from a different maester than the main 'author' of the book. I don't know where you are getting you numbers from, they are bunk. The whole idea of the project was that Elio and Linda would do most of the work, and he'd vet it, freeing his time for whatever he does instead of writing TWOW.
However they had gaps, GRRM said he'd write something, and then he wrote copious amounts of material. This was way too much for a coffee table book, so is being held back for an eventual 'GRRMarillion' - a history of the Targs to be published after the main series. Then you verge close to using a straw man argument. I do not dispute that the book is canon, never have.
He did vet all of it. However my position is that it is an 'optional' book for people who want more history and lore about lands and cultures and families that are not crucial to the main novels. It is more world building for fans who obsess more than most about minor houses and far away lands. This is why I have a problem with it being cited for predictions about the main series. No, your information is incorrect. Again, listen to the podcast with Elio. George wrote the majority of the book, all the new information, and everything in the entire eastern section.
Where did you get this idea that Martin only wrote the words of the second maester? That is absolutely wrong. Your assertion about TWOIAF being optional and won't be needed for people reading the main series - this assertion is based on nothing. Get your facts straight before you go around sewing misinformation, brother.
You might want to double check your information, because if you wrong, which you are, you're disrespecting the author. Ok, so I found out where you got the idea that George only wrote the sidebars - that's from an older SSM, from before the release of the book. That indeed seems to have been the original plan, but that's not the way it ended up.
So you're information is simply outdated:. Why, you might ask, is George R. Because he can't stop writing about Westeros! Along with Essos, Sothoryos, and Ulthos, of course. All of this is made abundantly clear in the Podcast of Ice and Fire interview with Elio, which is here:. No ill will towards you man, just please double check your information before you go spreading it around.
The original plan, way back in , was that we would largely work independently from George while he worked on the next novel. After some preliminary discussion and our presenting just an outline sketching out the structure -- which got his blessing -- we got to work. The first step was to collect all the information we had from the novels and things George had informed fans of in various emails, readings, and so on. Fortunately, we had the Concordance and So Spake Martin collection to help with that.
We filled out the outline with all the relevant information for each section, and then proceeded to do our best to write the text using the information we had. For a long time, George was not really involved because, again, he was busy with ADwD. However, the idea would be that once he was done with that, he'd go over our text and help fill in any gaps or point out any issues where the information we had was misleading or incorrect.
And that sort of did happen. George did go over it, sending back notes, filling gaps Rather than send us a handful of notes that we would flesh out as we had imagined he would do , he just set to and started writing He wrote a lot of text, and with amazing rapidity. Every section was enriched. It's part of the reason a book originally contracted for 50, words ended up at , Many of the names of maesters and the titles of their works, and many anecdotes related to those texts, are "color" that we invented.
Coming up with names of texts -- Songs the Drowned Men Sing is one we're particularly proud of -- was one of our favorite aspects of the process. In the main body of the text, there are places where we thought there was a hole in our knowledge that needed some sort of filling, because a maester would simply know it. In those cases, we would speculate out a possible bit of history to fill that gap, and then we marked them generally with a note saying it's speculative, sometimes that combined with red text to make it really stand out so that when George went over the draft, he could see it.
In some cases he kept what we speculated untouched, noting that he was okay with it. Sometimes, he even ran with it and elaborated on it, which was particularly satisfying from our perspective. A good example here: As an example, we presented a very speculative, and brief, version of the history of the Rhoynar flight to Dorne. George wracked his brain and asked if we had drawn from something he told us, and we said no, it was all purely speculative rather than spinning out from some arcane tidbit he'd shared with fans.
So, a few days later, we got a lengthy file containing his history of the Rhoynar which was very, very different than anything we could have imagined. You can see part of that text here. Everything went by George, in the end, and everything speculative was particularly called to his attention. It's also worth noting that the nearer we got to the "present" of the narrative, the less with felt like we could try speculation. Ancient history is one thing, because the knowledge of the maesters is imperfect in regards to the far past sometimes in regards to the near past, too, but that's a different story and so our speculative flights of fancy were more likely to fall within the range of what George thought probable as a maester's knowledge.
Once we get into the lifetimes of the characters in ASoIaF, though, history is much surer, and George has a much stronger idea on what those characters were up to. Can you shed any light on how George's process works? Does he brainstorm, outline, then first draft, then who knows what, then next draft, then restructure, then final pass. It seems like there are several stages of "done" and it would be interesting to see how he goes about such a large task. When George finally turned his hand to the book, all we basically saw was his going through our draft, and making some notes.
He noticed, as we all had, that there were a lot of places where we needed extensive notes and that's where he offered to write some brief sidebars, casting them as material from Archmaester Gyldayn. Then he started sending in sidebars How did he do it? I have no idea. I will say that Parris told us that George was writing like a man possessed -- Westeros was just coming to life in his head, and he would toss and turn at night with all sorts of ideas brewing and then in the morning he was off immediately to his office to get these things down.
The output, and the rapidity of it, was astonishing. Along the way, George went through each of our drafted sections and in many cases expanded and polished them as a way to flesh things out without going the whole "Here's 10, words of brand new text" route. Was there any material that you regret having to cut from the final product due to space or not being able to work it into the structure of the book? If we could have used all of George's write ups, we would have, but then the book would have pushed , words and that just wasn't feasible.
I am solely referring to descriptions of the process discussed when the book was released or shortly before. I really didn't give a shit before. Regardless of the authorship, I stand over my position as to the intent of the book and it's niche as a world book for the nerds. I'm not contending it is fan fiction. Number 1 didn't happen and none of the rest are acceptable.
The main reason for my original comments was that again, people are taking all the lore in the world and using it as evidence to draw conclusions. They miss the point about story telling, legends, myths and his sensibilities and nuance as an author. They seem to want to dumb it down to Eragon or similar. Actually, quite a lot of "wacky" stuff like the gemstone emperors of the Great Empire of the Dawn or the Deep Ones actually DO make appearances in the main novels. It's just that a lot of it is around the margins and was not noticed. I wouldn't say George is downplaying his involvement - he's quite frank about the fact that he wrote a ton of stuff for it.
I think it's all pretty consistent - at first, it was basically going to be a prose version of the Wikipedia of ice and fire which Elio and Linda compiled form the scattered details in the books, but when George became involved, he wrote a ton of stuff for the book. My position is that if George took the time to write it, and it's about ASOIAF, then it's potentially important and nobody has any basis to say it isn't, or to diminish it it any way, or to say it shouldn't be used for theories, essays, etc. It seems like you are projecting your own biases about real mythology onto ASOAIF, which is something I see fairly often from people who are inclined to dismiss the old stories and folklore.
It's not spoiling anything - just as new information we got about Bloodraven in the Dunk and Egg series wasn't spoiling the main series, but building on it and providing us with more information about it. And primarily, TWOIAF reveals the past, which of course will have ramifications for the future, but it's not really "spoiling" anything. You see a problem with this; I do not.
Not sure why you have a problem with that. Yeah, seems like it. Can you read the five books only and enjoy the series, and understand the broad strokes? But would you be ignorant of many important facts about Bloodraven? This one doesn't make sense. Martin will leave things as ambiguous or clear as he wants.
You are the only one who sees a problem with this, and I have no idea why. So again, your assertions are based on nothing but your own opinion, and you opinion contradicts George Martin, who put his name on the book. I rest my case. I get your criticism here and I agree that most of the legends in the book won't have any role to play. There's a lot in TWoIaF that's just a compendium of the mythology which has already been mentioned in the asoiaf. Mostly, I'm trying to look at the commonalities between all the myths to come to an underlying truth. I'll be getting closer to the main story in the next sections and thus somewhat less reliant on the world book.
I've been grinding this axe for some time now - the gods will remain off stage and ambiguous. I think George has gotten around the gods thing by making them all just men. Which makes sense with the "more than we already do" part of grrm's quote on the subject. You may be right, and the broad questions of the nature of the gods might not be made explicit. I would not be surprised by that. However, we know Martin's feelings on gods and religion in our real world, and I think he has drawn his world, even with magic, in a similar vein. This is the best big picture theory I've ever read. Looking forward to the next parts and they mysteries they inspire.
This seems to address the disparity between the timelines of legend and "maester-modernity" and the existence of dragons pre Valyria. Love this, can't wait for part 2.
The Emperor's Opal
I had a wild idea a couple of months ago that maybe the ice dragon is somewhere in the wall? Sounds crazy but I thought it through a bit. Something that particularly seemed to hint at this could be something Maester Aemon said to Sam while on route to Oldtown: Also Mel's power being stronger at the wall? One more thing, the horn of Joramun, how it's supposed to bring down the wall, and Euron's magic horn and how it's supposed to summon dragons. Thought there could possibly be a connection there.
Again just an idea, it would be nice to see King Jon Starkgaryen ride into battle on Winter, his giant Ice dragon. I liked the beginning, but i felt like you were drifting into too much fantasy, especially concerning the great empire of dawn. GRRM has concerned me with 1 his extensive scifi background, and 2 various statements suggesting he sees little difference between scifi and fantasy.
Because I like hard scifi, and I don't tend to like fantasy though WoT may have really ruined me on the genre. So I half-fear that my taste for scifi and historical fiction might explain my "enchantment" with probably the 3rd or 4th fantasy series I've ever really liked eg, Amber, LOTR, can't remember the other, and definitely asoiaf. And I don't think I'd like asoiaf if it were scifi at all. So I'm all for the fantasy: And I guess I simply don't like the scifi theories I've read about asoiaf though I go there myself sometimes , like global warming and shit.
I hate propaganda with the passion of a thousand red comets. So I'd love asoiaf to be pure fantasy, and while I understand your concern about explaining the Dawn empire, I don't think any of this would be spelled out in the books at all. Look for helping with it. Stuff like this would be perfect! I'm on mobile, so don't have the quotes but here's the gist. Remember there's no wall at this point and the Starks are kings of Winter.
There is a passage somewhere that says the first men settled the lands all the way to the land of always winter. So that would be included in the Starks domain. Can't say I agree with everything but what an awesome read, the best post on this sub in a while. Macro theories like this are so awesome they make the micro ones look insignificant.
Great job, can't wait for part 2. I made a post a few months back covering the Great Empire of the Dawn, and it seems we think a lot alike! They definitely had a very important effect on the world. I'm a big ancient history buff, so it's stuff like this that really draws my attention. It's a shame we probably won't get to read more about them, but that's the beauty of this series, it keeps us wondering.
Cool, yeah we are definitely of similar mind on this. Part two should be out in a day or two and that will cover the long night, the first Dayne, and more related to the empire's influence. I really like this idea, but if this is the case why can't Wights pass underneath the wall? Was this a magic cast on the wall long after it was initially built? We've always been told the wall was built to keep the WWs out, but perhaps it was the WWs who built the wall to keep man out of the north. Now that Wildlings had been moving further and further north, the WWs could no longer tolerate it and are aiming to push them back, and perhaps even more.
