    Cool. If I feel like being a loser this weekend, I may end up finishing the book. It just depends on what my friends have going on.

    Question about the R&L theory for Jon
    Show Spoiler
    how does the whole dragon blood thing work? Viserys didnt have it but Daenerys does. It would seem that Jon doesn't because he burned his hand, but i can't remember if there was anything unusual about the burn. I know the books talk a lot about his hand after the fact, so i was wondering if I missed some small detail that would support this theory.

    Show Spoiler
    Also, are there any theories as to why Viserys didnt have dragon blood? I'm through book three and almost done with four. If it's mentioned in book 5 then don't worry about it.

    I haven't even thought about a re-read yet. went through all 5 books between tv seasons. I'm excited to see what I've missed, dreading some parts
  20. Manny

    Manny I love lamp.

    I've debated re-reading the first three before going on to AFFC because I'm dreading it. I feel it's just going to be a chore to get to ADWD.
  21. zeberdee

    zeberdee Edd, fetch me a block

    AFFC is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. it's just a bit of a reset after the chaos of ASOS.

    My only problem with it is that one of the storylines is very uninteresting to me and every time I got to another one of that character's POV's in AFFC I wanted to slit my wrists.

    Dany?

    IMO it was much better on the re-read than the first time through. I actually enjoyed the book more knowing what was happening to everyone else at the same time, having read ADWD. Maybe you should do what someone suggested in another thread and read AFFC and ADWD together using there method of alternative chapters chronologically.

    Dany wasn't in AFFC, if I had to guess it would probably be Brienne.

    Whatever happened to the letter where Robb named his heir to Winterfell?
  37. Cawgs or Gie!

    Cawgs or Gie! The next Jordy Nelson, obviously.

    He sent the letter and Ned's bones with a group back to Winterfell in Book 3, but I don't think anyone knows what happened to them.
  38. GBG_24

    GBG_24 Ya'll ready to smash some fruit?!?

    My money is on both the bones and the letter being with Howland Reed and the Crannogmen.

    Minor book 5 spoiler. I'd advise not reading unless you've finished it.

    Show Spoiler
    I've thought this as well and they have to be with the Reeds. I'm guessing Moat Cailin fell before the bones got there and were intercepted by the crannogmen, so the ironborn didn't get their hands on them. They never passed through the Barrowlands, just north of the Moat, because Lady Dustin said she was gonna feed Ned's bones to her dogs when she gets her hands on them. It's been way too long for them to not get there by then, so either someone raped and killed the silent sisters (which is pretty unlikely, even for GRRM), or the Reeds have them.
