shymaid if we are now talking about Harrenhal might I direct you to another thread.
Its an expansion on the Southron Ambition's theory.
LOL! Sorry if I'm derailing here! I just want to answer danls last points, and I don't know how to do that in another thread (I'm not very technically competent... ). It won't take long and then I'll stop, I promise. Feel free to move it if you or any other staff want to!
And I'll take a look at that thread later! Thank you!
As Martin said he could write a whole book on what took place at HH, I haven't focused much on it yet. Need to get a better grip on what we have in the books first.
I pretty much stated every thought I have on the matter earlier, and I'm very far from any sort of conclution!
His death yes, probably not the death of Brandon and his men.
You would expect that, once a conspiracy to bring down a King fell apart, some of the conspirators would join the open rebellion. Other than Ned (who was reluctant) none did.
This plot appears to be in support of Rhaegar, with Lonmouth distracting Robert. But everyone who danced with Ashara is from the Northern or Southern extremes of Westeros. (Some say the White Sword is Gerald Hightower, but I'm going with SAD). It seems like an odd combination for a political conspiracy. And Ned is an odd choice for inclusion since his older brother is there, unless Brandon knew that Ned would soon rule House Stark.
Maybe they wanted to use Neds closeness to Arryn? That is one thing Ned had that Brandon didn't.
As for the others not joining the rebellion; I think they saw Rhaegar as their king, and this was against him also. So joining would be a no-go for that reason alone.
I don't really have many thoughts on this yet.
Could be, could be!
I will in time! The white-red-black theme I want to read as unsoiled as possible. Reading other peoples thoughts can put a line of thought in your head (good or bad), and I want to avoid that on this one. Sometimes I lament that I came to the books with theories somewhat logged in my head, but it can't be changed.
For some reason I'm able to do that for the most part, not really sure how! Some lines have placed them selves firmly in my mind though, as they're so good, so I'm kinda disapointed they're not in the books. Fortunately they don't take away or change any meaning, just things being put very well.
