    It looks like he's leaning back to hack off someones 'ed. If it is cuz he's fat he's got one hell of a growth on his chest. Have u ever looked at a fat person? it's all gut. Not in the chest. Looks like he's smuggling a hobbit. lol.

    Maybe because he'll need someone to rule Lannisport etc after the fact? and a half lannister grandson of his would be a good choice.

    Yup, that's what I thought as well.

    I also found the passage concerning Amory:
    "Ser Amory was almost as bestial with Rhaenys. I asked him afterward why it had required half a hundred thrusts to kill a girl of... two? Three?"

    Hey watch it that's my Eddard your talking about...lol! :D I thought that at first but it's more like he's chest peice is bulging as he leans back to ready the swing for a good clean kill! :hackit:
    Oops back to the point. It is interesting to try to figure out what Doran has up his sleeve but as with all GRRM characters he leads us on one trail only to drop us off on a completely different one. It's almost frustrating at times and you want to throw the book in the freezing lake but the next second you'd jump in and get it back. Maybe he thinks he can offer Mycella to Dany as a sacrifice?

    I'm still holding to it that Doran's preparing to hand some major chunks of Westeros to Dany.

    Arianne => Dorne
    Quentyn => With Dany
    Trystane + Myrcella => Casterly Rock

    I don't think it matters what Doran has planned "for" Dany. She'll put him in his place like she does everyone else. What I'm interested in is what she's going to do about her Dragons eating people up.

    True, but Dany is more inclined to be nicer to Doran, AND she needs some Lords of Westeros on her side. She can pretend to be the rightful queen of Westeros all she likes, but she's going to need some help from the lords of Westeros both in governing and in conquering her realm.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Dany and hope she wins, but it's also true that she needs SOME people on her side.

    true but Selmy will give her cause a lot of pull not to mention by the time she gets to Westeros she'll have a bunch of people eating fire breathing dragons.

    Have we talked about the chapter from ADoD that was in the back yet? I forget which one, but it's possible that one of the dragons is dead. Maybe Dany should change her motto to "The dragon has two heads"?

    No. No dragons are dead. What was being referred to in the sneak preview chapter to ADWD was that the Dragons have started eating people.

    Semly might get the commons on her side, but she needs nobles and their swords. Not everyone's going to reject their current king and say, "OK, Dany's our queen now because Selmy said so." Actually, I can't see that happening with anyone except the Martells and maybe Jaime. Littlefinger? Euron? Bolton? No way.

    Which is why she'll use her firebreathing dragons on em. besides little****er and bolton need to become dragon snax. and if the commons r on ur side it goes a long way.

    Dragons can be killed. And commons on your side... True, there's a lot of them, but what can a bunch of pitchfork-armed peasants do against a host of trained knights? You need both the commons and the nobles to win the war and rule the realm.

    definitely but i said it goes a long way. didn't say it went all the way. and the knights to the dragons are like the peasants to the knights. on the same note tho a 1000 peasants against 10 kuhnigits and the kuhnigits are going to be turned into a fine pink mist. It will be interesting to see where GRRM is gonna go with all this. can't wait for ADWD.

    Lol. But look at it this way too - nobles can deny peasants their food, etc. while the British couldn't exactly do that to the Americans. Britain also had to ship soldiers from pretty far away.

    I can't wait for ADWD either. :D

    yeah, but look what the peasants did to the High Lord Septon and others when Myrcella left Kings Landing

    Do you know when ADWD is supposed to be released?

    True, but the High Septon did not have an entire army. If you're referring to the mob incident in CoK, remember that the gold cloaks were reluctant to kill people of KL that might be friends, neighbors, relatives, etc.

    As for ADWD's release date, GRRM mentioned that he hoped that it would be an year after AFFC, but there is no official release date as of yet.

    true, but starving out people would also make even more bandits, then fields would burn and heads would roll, but anyways i do agree that Dany would need at least some nobles on her side to win Westeros and likely some would go to her

    I wish ADWD would come out sooner than a year :(
