The Ravenry: Week of 8/24/2015


As you may or may not know, Wars and Politics of Ice and Fire has its own Tumblr page (as well as its own Twitter and Facebook pages).  Even more excitingly,  we here at the blog have partnered with ASOIAF University to answer questions about A Song of Ice and Fire.  We – that is, myself and SomethingLikeaLawyer – take the text-based questions submitted to us, write up thoughtful text-based answers, and publish these answers on the Tumblr.

So every Monday we present to you The Ravenry.  We collect the questions we’ve answered during the previous week over on the Tumblr in post form, with a brief description of each, and publish it here, and link that post on Twitter and Facebook as well. We were both busy answering a whole bunch of different questions this week, from explaining the Conqueror’s Dornish letter to looking at a Stark victory on the Green Fork to – ugh, R+L=J&M. Look, we here at Wars and Politics of Ice and Fire love to asnwer your questions. We strive to provide thoughtful, researched answers to your FOR THE LOVE OF R’HLLOR THAT THEORY NEEDS TO DIE AND THEN GET REVIVED BY BLOOD MAGIC JUST SO I CAN KILL IT AGAIN.

It’s fine. I’m fine.

Here’s The Ravenry for the week of August 24:

As always, we love to hear your text-based questions, so if you have a burning question about ASOIAF, click this link to send us a raven. The more specific the question, the better text-based answer we can write, although we do our best to answer them all.

Love you lots,

The Queen Regent (NFriel)

    Where is the link to the first one? (Vary’s long term plans for Aegon’a line)

    Nfriel, what do you think about my theory that Moonboy is Jon’s twin brother? I call it R+L = J & M

    Support: we know Cersei has a weakness for people who resemble Rhaegar, and Tyrion and Jaime keep going on about a possible Cersei/Moonboy relationship…

    They never answer my Euron = Daaria question

    If we’re going to assume a Targaryean victory during the rebellion doesn’t that generally also assume a Rhaegar victory. Rhaegar of the “I mean to call a council’? In that case, given Stannis conflicting loyalties from the beginning and the amount of damage control needed I could see Rhaegar, after Robert’s safely dead of course, bringing the Baratheon’s back into the fold to help unseat his father.

  5. Ser Biffy Clegane

    I think the big question with the “what if Aerys died at Duskendale” is the prophesy. I suppose if Rhaegar married someone who could bear him three children, things might be OK, unless he decided he needed “ice.” (I guess it might also work out if he didn’t marry anyone BUT Lyanna, assuming she was willing, although it wouldn’t make him and Robert bros.)

    The other question would be Varys. Would he still want to destabilize the throne if Rhaegar was on it, and if so, what would he do?
