    http://www.angelfire.com/ma4/mlarchives/faq/coldhands.html A good discussion about that here from that link Yoadm gave us in the Q&A thread. It's possible, but there's not quite enough info to confirm it.

    I think Sandor Clegane still has a role to play. If Martin wanted him dead, it would have been simple enough for Arya to kill him. What's one more death in the book. But the fact she doesn't, means we'll probably see him again. I hope so. He's not completely evil like his brother, but very complex.

    Why or how could it possibly be Benjen? You know, it is possible to introduce a new character without it being some kind of clever plot twist. This belongs to the same school of thought as people who think that fake Arya is 'obviously' Jeyne Poole...Who is too old, and probably died in the first book anyway.

    I was thinking, about the whole "Song Of Ice And Fire' thing. Dany is called the "Unburnt" and she was engulfed in flames, and spent a good deal of time in the desert, whilst Jon Snow is at the Wall (of Ice) and lives in extreme cold.

    Could their stories be the Song Of Ice And Fire ?

    Hey, interesting idea! Maybe. But also remember the Stark words: Winter is Coming. Winter=ice/snow (or at least it does in normal places. Here, it means "Winter=slightly cooler weather and longingly looking at the snow-covered mountains.) I still think that Arya, Sansa, and Bran have a larger role to play.

    Speaking of Arya, I thought she died when the Hound smacked her one with the axe. I was in shock, seeing Robb, Catelyn and Arya all die in about three pages.

    Highlight:

    Tsk, tsk. Two of the three aren't dead yet.

    Or wait: have you only gotten the first part yet? If you haven't read the entire thing, you won't have the slightest clue what I'm talking about, so I won't spoil the surprise.

    I finished. I said I thought Arya died. Turned out she didn't ;)

    Btw, how did you do the highlight thing ? Did you just change the text colour to match the background ?

    Lol, I made sure Arya didn't die. I think I skipped about 400 pages, made sure she was still alive at the end, then went back to reading the rest of it. :D

    Yeah, I just changed the text to white so if you want to read the thing, you highlight the "blank" spot.
