I don't see Tommen meeting the same fate as in the show, but I do think they teased what might happen to him in ''The Winds of Winter''. Perhaps, with the threats of the High Septon and Aegon closing in, Cersei tries to flee to Casterly Rock and take Tommen with him with help from Ser Robert Strong. Tommen proves to be difficult and keeps protesting and crying, so Cersei gets some essence of nightshade to keep him quiet and sleeping on their journey to Casterly Rock but becomes so frustrated by Tommen's behavior that she gives him an overdose and accidentally poisons her own son, thus pushing her well and truly over the edge.

[[WMG: The Pink Letter was a collaborative effort of four people]]

Those being [[spoiler:Stannis]], [[spoiler:Mance]], [[spoiler:Theon]] and [[spoiler:Jeyne Poole]]
Each one gave a contribution of their own to the letter and the reason for helping write it.

[[spoiler:Stannis]] is the one behind the demand for Selyse, Shireen and Mel. He needed help and was willing to do anything to get it, and possibly also a commander who would lead his armies in his stead, since he couldn't very well do it himself, given that he is, for all intents and purposes, dead.

[[spoiler:Mance]] is behind the demand for his sister-in-law and his child, and his reason for helping write it was to save his own life and that of his baby.

[[spoiler:Theon]] knows several details about Ramsay's mindset and writing style, as well as Ramsay's desire to have Reek and his bride by his side, which was needed for authenticity of the letter. He agreed to this in exchange for Stannis releasing his sister from captivity.

Joanna Lannister (Cersei and Jaime's mother) was the one who caught Cersei and Jaime when they started sexually experimenting with each other, and separated them by putting them on different ends of Casterly Rock, warning them that if they did it again, she would be forced to tell their father; when Joanna died giving birth to Tyrion, Cersei and Jaime went right back to what they were doing. Cersei commits murder only three years later when she drowns Melara Hetherspoon. Plus, Cersei shows little feeling towards her mother in the present, with her only memory being of separating them. So it's likely that Cersei killed her mother shortly after Tyrion's birth because she got in the way of her and Jaime. Besides, it would be ironic that Tywin, who hated Tyrion because he allegedly killed Joanna by being born, had no reason to hate Tyrion because of one of his other children.

Grandison was the Kingsguard who died so Jaime could take his place as Kingsguard. We know that Cersei wanted Jaime all to herself and she persuaded Jaime to join the Kingsguard to keep him from being betrothed to Lysa Tully, offering to make arrangements. We ''also'' know that Cersei has other people killed and make it appear natural; the [[spoiler:second High Septon]] comes to mind. So it would be easy for Cersei to have Grandison smothered or poisoned to make a spot for Jaime on the roster.

It’s mentioned that Lysa paints and powders her face. Lead was used in the making of face powder for centuries. Sweetrobin displays some of the symptoms of lead poisoning like developmental delays, learning difficulties, irritability, and seizures, while Lysa displays mood swings. Sweetrobin could have easily absorbed lead through the placenta while Lysa was pregnant with him or through breast milk.

[[WMG: In the seventh novel, GRRM will revoke {{Narrator}} status from a character ''before'' they are killed.]]

And that no-longer-narrator, who will nonetheless appear in most of the chapters of the novel, is... Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, the Stormborn: Daenerys Targaryen, First of her Name.

Why? Because nothing else makes sense.

First off: while we know GRRM only told David & Dan five things about how to end ''Series/GameOfThrones'', it is safe to assume that "Dany goes binky-bonkers and turns out to be the BiggerBad" is one of them. Second, the book series has an absolute love of FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator -- whenever somebody is in a position of power, they are not a narrator, creating a sense of mystique around them (since we never truly know what they are thinking). Finally, we can assume that ([[EndingAversion unlike in the show]]) Dany will display some SanitySlippage in the sixth and seventh books before JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. Such a thing would be ''way'' easier to convey through the eyes of other narrators... and, frankly, might prove impossible -- even for a writer of GRRM's caliber -- to convey through her own.

So, for ease of making the plot work, Daenerys will stop being a narrator.

Ned says he had a bastard with a common woman named Wylla, and also that Jon "of his blood". It's possible that both of those statements are true, but the implication deliberately misleading. According to Edric Dayne (who was wetnursed by her) Wylla did have a child, and the Daynes believe it was Jon. While it's possible something happened to her baby and this really is Jon, it raises all sorts of logistical questions about how they pulled it off without the Daynes or other servants realizing something didn't add up. He would have had to have been there long enough before for the affair to be believable, and then shown up at the ''exact'' right time for nobody to notice an overlap or gap. The simpler solution is that there is simply another baby, who knows where. It would also explain a problem with the dire wolf scene in the first book; if Jon is a cousin instead of a sibling, why were there six dire wolf pups?

[[WMG: Lysa (and by extension Robert Arryn) have lead poisoning.]]

Sweetrobin displays some of the symptoms of lead poisoning like developmental delays, learning difficulties, irritability, and seizures, while Lysa displays mood swings. Sweetrobin could have easily absorbed lead through the placenta while Lysa was pregnant with him or through breast milk.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Faceless Men are born out of a bad case of wyrms]]

Before Aerea Targaryen died, she was begging for death. This was due to her firewyrm infestation. While she was able to endure it longer than an average human, its pretty much guaranteed the average human suffers just as badly, but doesn’t survive as long.

Where do these wyrms originate? The mines of Valyria (allegedly). The ‘first gift’ also happened in the mines. Match these cases up, and you have a firewyrm infested slave, begging for death, and a very pissed off army of proto-assassins.

Then comes the slave rebellion, where enough Valyrian fire mages are killed, sparking The Doom.

This explains the Brovosi overall acceptance of an assassin’s guild operating in the open: the Faceless Men played a key role in the slave liberation and subsequent city’s founding.

radiation. This means its really pure luck if you have anything to gain. This kind of puts the Maesters in a “grumpy protector of the normals” role. Which oddly, provides a sort of benevolent rationale to what they do. Everyone can do science, but not everyone can do magic.


Those with Valyrian links have resistance. The Children of the Forest and White Walkers appear to be symbiotic with it. Regular humans are either in areas where the radiation isn’t, or go through high-speed natural selection in areas with high concentrations.

concentrations.

Since Asshai behaves like a giant reactor, much like old Valyria, dismantaling the city and leaving giant black stone obelisks everywhere isnt necessarily a good idea. The safer thing to do would be to dilute the black stone concentration first, or you’ll wind up with dead zones, possible grey scale outbreaks, and maurading wizards. Even doing that doesn’t necessarily translate to an objectively ‘good’ outcome, because you’ll end up with magic super powers humans, doing what people in ASOIAF are prone to do: rape and pillage.


Added DiffLines:

Areas colonized with Valyrian descendants and with black stone structures tend be resistant to recolonization by non-Valyrians. The Valyrians can be conquered, but the occupiers will die of radiation sickness soon after.

Any place that sees really heavy dragon fire tends to become irradiated. This means a Valyrian attack is likely to result in ‘scortched earth,’ where everything mutates or necrotizes. If the Valyrians are conscious of this, it allows them to easily hold territory.

Some, but not all humans benefit from being anywhere near the radiation.
