    AFFC SPOILERS - DO NOT ENTER THIS THREAD IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT.









    All right, so we've been discussing this in the ADWD Update thread as well. Anyway, we've got at least four candidates for Dany's other 'dragon heads'. At the moment, Quentyn Martell, Victarion Greyjoy, and Tyrion Lannister are known quantities making their way to Dany, but Jon Snow, by virtue of the R + L = J speculation, is as popular a candidate. Who do you think might become the two other dragonriders? (I think Tyrion and Jon are the most likely, and though it's never gonna happen, Bran and Arya as dragonriders would also rock...)

    Well Bran is in the north, and Dany has to come there eventually to fight the Others. What if Dany can't train the dragons to obey others? Bran is the likeliest candidate. (Why can't I figure out how to spell 'likeliest'? Hope that's right...)

    Woohoo, that means Bran might be a dragon's head! That would totally rock...

    Who do I want to be the other 2? Jon and Tyrion. Who do I think it will actually be the other 2? I've got no clue and GRRM is too unpredicatable and crazy to be able to figure it out

    No, it's so that we DON'T spam the other threads that are supposed to be about something else in the first place.

    well the other threads are loosly linked otherwise the discussion wouldnt lead there, and now theres nothing going on there so basically youve started a new thread for a conversation that already had one. i.e. SPAM

    Wait a second, I was actually attempting to discuss this. You're the one who spammed. Now out! :p

    Continuing on the Bran line, how many of you think that's actually possible? Dany doesn't seem to be able to control her dragons very well, and if Bran's going to be a warg, he could help her out with that. On the other hand, Jon's pretty much a warg too, so Bran kinda goes out the window...

    since you people LOVE forshadowing, bran wants to fly, with dragons he can.

    Obviously all foreshadowring MUST be true if it goes into more than one book.

    :rolleyes: Bran's flying has more to do with the three-eyed crow. Neither does he have as much foreshadowing as Tyrion/Jon. So if you don't think the other dragon heads are gonna be Jon and Tyrion, what are your candidates?

    Who knows where the three eyed crow line is going, it could lead anywhere since its the most open ended plot line we have, something in the north, whats there but others? coldhands? its anyones guess.


    And i prefer to abstain from making actual decisions when it comes to speculation, ill mkae suggestions but favouring one over another leads to mistakes..*Ehem*varyswithtyrion*ehem*

    We're not saying it's fact, it's speculation. And I'll do what I want to - at least I actually have an argument instead of going around shooting everyone's ideas down because you don't have an argument... ;)

    So just make a fence sitting post like me. You post who you want and who you think it might be. When you post who it might be give 3 or 4 answers and cover your bases :)

    yeah, and if you didnt have ideas and i didnt shoot them down where woudl that leave us, people randomly posting ideas, where does that lead? nowhere.

    critical analysis helps lead to the most reasonable and rational outcomes.

    There was no other response I could make, given that you were practically jumping into your next line of "thats why im alway sright". :rolleyes:

    @ K'shar: Yeah, s'pose so. But it's so much fun to speculate...

    yeah but everyone loves the fence sitter right? I think it'll be Tyrion and Jon. GRRM is too freakin unpredictable but if you force me to make a guess that's who I go with.

    Jojen's green dreams about Bran bein a winged wolf is a hint, and despite the three eyed crow deal, I don't think we can rule out the possibility that they are dragon's wings. Bran seems to be coming into some power as a skinchanger, that could be useful.

    I can't shake the feeling, though, that Stannis is a contender for one of the Dragon's other heads. While I doubt he's everything Melisandre (sp?) makes him out to be, he still has some crucial role I think. Besides, the others 'Kings' keep dying off, and like it or not he has more of a claim tham anyone . . . barring Dany.

    I agree that he has a part to play, but being one of the three heads can't be it. I mean, what would Stannis do with a dragon? He's so...Stannis.

    Stannis is likely a red herring in my opinion, and obvious one for everyone to laugh at. I mean can you imagine dany, bran/tyrion/jon/etc and stannis sitting there together and getting along?

    P.S. why the hell do you has a viserys banner app? A) hes an annoying prat that everyone hates and B) is it just me or does that look nothing like viserys?
