Q: What assumed name does Sansa live under with Littlefinger?"


Half correct, it was the Tyrells, specifically the Queen of Thorns. Far as I know, Littlefinger was marginally aware of things, but not involved.

Q: What is the story behind Jon Snow's mother?


message 42: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh A: officially? his mother may have been a wet nurse named wylla from dorne. or a daughter of a ferryboat captain from the sisters. possibly he is ashara dayne's child. however, according to various hints in the first book, it is much more likely that jon's mother is actually lyanna stark, and ned's promise to her was to keep her child, a targaryen bastard, safe and secret.

Q: who encourages tyrion to learn to tumble and tell jokes?


message 43: by Kim (new) - rated it 5 stars

Kim Well said. It was a trick question since it hasn't been defined yet but I was curious about the theories floating about. I believe Jon is the son of the noble woman who killed herself. That's my guess. ;-)

A: Penny the dwarf, while they were slaves

Q: What rule of hospitality was broken at the red wedding?


message 44: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Kim wrote: "Penny the dwarf"

i suppose that is true to a certain extent, but i meant originally, as a child. in which case it was his uncle gerion lannister, the youngest brother of tywin lannister and apparently tyrion and jaime's favorite uncle.

A: the guest right.

Q: who is areo hotah's wife?


Matthew Williams Josh wrote: "A: officially? his mother may have been a wet nurse named wylla from dorne. or a daughter of a ferryboat captain from the sisters. possibly he is ashara dayne's child. however, according to various..."

I've also heard that theory, but that he might be Rhaegar's and Lyanna's bastard, hence making Ned his uncle. The reason for the secrecy being that his life would be in danger if ever it were known that Rhaegar had any living offspring left. However, that would not explain why he let his wife think he represented a betrayal on Ned's part. Surely, he'd let his wife of all people in on the secret, if only to spare her pain and make sure she treated John with a little acceptance.


message 46: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh i don't mean to take this thread off on a tangent, but i think that ned did keep this secret for several reasons:

1. he is an honorable man. if his sister told him to keep a secret for her with her dying breath then that i would fully expect ned stark to honor that, even at the expense of his own reputation.

2. he is a loyal man. his devotion to his family is perhaps the only thing that outweighs his code of honor. remember that he chose to fight against the king of the realm because of crimes he committed against his father and brother, and the kidnapping of his sister.

3. he protects the innocent. he condemns robert for attempting to assassinate danaerys and warns cersei of his plans to expose her so that she would be able to save her children.

4. catelyn is a stanger to him at the time of this promise. he loved ashara dayne and was suddenly thrust into a lordship and a marriage to this girl he'd hardly met. it's not surprising to think that he would chose to honor his sister's wish even if it meant that he would shame his new wife. she is southern afterall and a stanger to his family's culture and custom. also, it was fairly common for bastard children to be spurned in this way. a loving embrace from cat would seem unnatural and could rouse suspicion.

5. he is learned. i'm certain he knows of the history of the kingdom and the death and civil chaos that targaryen bastards have in the past caused the realm. not to mention the recent events of rhaegar's murdered children and robert's apparent tolerance of such a vile act. it makes all the more sense to keep jon secret, from everyone.


Eyehavenofilter Ok let's get back on track here!

Q: no one answered my areo hotah question up there. who is his wife?


message 50: by Jeni (new) - rated it 5 stars
