Polish Hussar: she promptly downed a mug of moon tea.
Romanes Eunt Domus: nmrsnr: DamnYankees: Didn't Aegon die when he was a baby?Spoilers: It doesn't look that way in book 5.Errr...more potential spoilers for your spoilers: he may not be what he claims to be and Daenerys was warned about the mummer's dragon.Reading the short stories (featuring Dunk and Egg) and the references to Aegor "Bittersteel" Rivers and the Golden Company actually supporting "Young Griff" and it's possible that we may be looking at a potential Blackfyre Rebellion part 3. Why else would a mercenary company founded by Blackfyre rebels aid a Targaryen?
Dingleberry Dickwad: Texian: But Jon Snow still knows nothing?Knew enough to turn Ygritte's crank.
kronicfeld: Slaxl: I don't keep up on theories, but I do remember whilst reading it thinking that Ned might not be the father, but she might, but I can't remember when I thought that, or why. It was too long ago.The quick rundown:The more we hear about him, Rhaegar wasn't the monster that his father was. He was a fairly reasonable and honorable dude, in that context at least. There's actually a supportable side theory that he was planning a coup to depose his insane father. He didn't actually "abduct" Lyanna; that is what Robert chooses to believe because he was in love with her. Rather, they ran away together. Lyanna was being protected at the Tower of Joy by three of the Kingsguard, including Rhaegar's best friend, who had no reason to be standing between Ned and a simple prisoner of war. Ned found Lyanna in a "bed of blood," strongly implying childbirth, especially because there's never been any implication that anyone willfully injured her. Lyanna make Ned "promise" something, likely to keep secret her son's lineage, as his life would be forfeit if Robert ever found out (see, e.g., Robert calling out a hit on Dany and Viserys). Ned sacrifices his honor and lies that he knocked up a maid to create a cover story for Jon's existence.
