    Selmy isn't a major character in the way Tyrion is. Also, there have been little hints/possible foreshadowings that Tyrion might become a king or dragonrider.

    A lot of foreshadowing. And while Dany and Selmy probably won't appreciate Tyrion's humour you know for sure that most of the rest of her entourage like Strong Belwas will. Still more books to go. He doesn't have to start off as a favourite of Dany's but he could grow to be. Besides you know that Tyrion is going to link with the Dragons right off the bat and If there's some way that the dragons like him Dany will follow suit eventually even if Selmy is telling her elsewise. Dany trusts in her Dragons and Tyrion will as well. He's too smart and ambitious to stay down forever.

    I would like to remind some of you of other foreshadowing 'the stallion who mounts the world' dont be decieved so easily, GRRM loves smashing dreams like ripe melons, beware!

    While he does smash prophecy we're allowed to drool over the things we really want to see. Besides I think with Tyrion it'll be hard for him to smash him too far down. It is after all his favourite character.
    On a side note wouldn't it be interesting if not only was Tysha to be found but to be found with a baby that was from the mass "whoreing" or "raping" whatever you prefer and she kept it hoping it was Tyrions? She's not exactly gonna be in a stable frame of mind me thinks

    I see a few hints that Tyron will be one of the heads because, ghost likes him, and Aemon said he was i think a 'giant among men' and he will be one of Danys strongest allies if they ever join forces. And Dany dosnt have anyone who is as smart or smarter than him.

    What he said.

    @ Cru: 'The stallion who mounts the world' prophecy was covered only in one book. We've had 4 books so far for Tyrion-foreshadowings (AFFC does count - look at all the Cersei dreams...), so we'll see what happens.

    By the way, how the hell did this evolve from a "GRRM Update" thread to a "The Dragon's Three Heads" speculation? I'll go start a thread just for that...

    "He didn't offer much in the way of spoilers, but did say that we'd see Arya and Asha in this book, that there would be one new POV but hopefully no more after that (and that they'll continue to keep dropping off), that the timeline of the new book may continue past AFFC but that it depends on the length, and that we'll definitely see Casterly Rock and may see Highgarden."

    Read this in the SSM collection. Since the chars are all in the North/with Dany, does this mean that Dany begins her invasion in ADWD?

    Excerpts from GRRM's "Not A Blog":

    "All my emails are about A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. I made the mistake of saying on my Update page that I would update again in April, and I didn't. Mea culpa. The thing is, I have posted several updates here, and I thought that would suffice, but it would appear that a good percentage of the folks who visit my website go straight to Update and never check out any of the other pages or links, including this one.

    I promise, I am going to update Update real soon now.

    Meanwhile, for those who do read this page... yes, I am still working on A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, and yes, I still hope to deliver it this fall, or by the end of the year at the latest.

    I also have other news about A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE. A couple of things, actually, that I think will please and excite fans of the series. Unfortunately, I can't talk about them yet. Watch my News page, though. I should have a few big announcements in the next few months."

    I don't think there's anything he could tell us that's more exciting than "Here's the next book".

    I don't think it's gonna be the book being released this year. Something else that'll frustrate us. damn GRRM
