    I'll consider the excerpt an early birthday present for me too. ;) And nice, Renz! :p

    @ App: Elan made this set a while back but didn't like it, and he offered it to me. I'm going to consider it a birthday present. ;)

    I'm so excited about that excerpt. Totally going nuts now for the next book. And Tyrion with Dany? I almost did a little jig but I guess we'll see how and where things go...

    hehe, While I was reading it I was thinking, "Kshar is going to love this!"

    'Where do whores go?' I wonder if we're going to eventually meet Tysha. I guess I always assumed she was dead. Martin's too mean to let us have the Tyrion/Tysha happy ending, so I don't know how we'd end up meeting her.

    He might end up finding Tysha as he left her. We know Tyrion is a frequent visitor of whorehouses.

    How long ago was the incident with Tysha? Ten years? I don't recall exactly how old Tyrion is, but it has been a significant amount of time. She's likely moved on, married, or like Renz suggests, has become a whore.

    and what would happen then if they did meet? i mean some thing are awkard, but try reuniting a dwarf to a woman he married, divorced, then his father had his guardsman rape her and pay her, and made tyrion do the same after. I dont think there could be a happy ending if they reunited.

    Yeah, I have to agree. There's no amount of flowers/candy/or in this case, dragons, that would make up for THAT.

    Ditto to App.

    As for Turin's question, he was thirteen when he wed, I believe, and Tyrion was in his early twenties (I think about twenty-one or twenty-two) when GoT began. So... maybe 25/26 by now, though I'm not entirely sure.

    I don't want to see that at all, lol.

    I'm still for Dany/Jon. If the dragon has to have three heads I'd rather see her marry Quentyn Martell.

    I dont wanna see Jon abandon his oaths to the wall, and being one of the Three he probibly has to help her out a ton, and he has enough on his plate w/out adding her problems to his.

    On a side note isn't doing ur aunt a little f****d up even for the Targaryen's?

    Why no Tyrion? The physical aspect of it?

    Although Tyrion and Jon are my most likely candidates for now...

    Jon won't have a wall left over to abandon any vows to. I think the wall might fall in the battle with the Others and after that there won't be a need for the Wall. The reason for it will be gone and Jon will be free to do whatever he wants even if that includes gettin freaky with his Aunt.

    Why not Tyrion? I don't know. I just can't see Tyrion and Dany together for some reason. I really can't even see them interacting. It going to be funny and above all, akward.

    I also don't think that just because Tyrion and Dany are set up to meet each other that Tyrion is one of the three heads of the Dragon. Illyrio sent Selmy, though perhaps it was inadvertantly, to Dany as well. It doesn't appear that he is part of this multi headed beast.
