nirah10 asked:

Do you think there's any meaning behind the things that Jeor Mormont's raven says?

Some of the things. When it’s begging for corn, no, there’s no particular meaning. Other things it says, though… there’s a general theory that the raven has been skinchanged by Bloodraven or Bran at various times. People often point to its mysterious appearance in the Night’s Watch ballot box kettle, repeating the word “Snow”, as a sign it was being controlled by Bloodraven. (Though with the time dilation effect of weirwoods it might have been Bran even then.)

I personally think that the raven’s words (“King” and “Jon Snow”) in ADWD Jon XII was definitely a time Bran was trying to speak to Jon, though we’ll probably have to wait for a Bran chapter to know exactly what he was trying to tell him. The fact that the raven says “corn, corn, kill” when Bowen Marsh is meeting with Jon (and nobody had said the word “kill” for the bird to repeat) is also probably significant.

You can look at my tag for more posts about that strange bird, and googling Mormont’s raven will get you many links to people’s theories on the subject. Hope that helps!

Nesse fim de semana vou testar o novo Skin Change, lançamento da Olympikus. O seu diferencial é a transpiração do cabedal, a lingüeta com amarração diferenciada e o conforto e performance do seu solado. Possui ainda duas meias que fazem parte do modelo, que mudam o visual conforme muda-se a meia. Também testarei uma palmilha extra de PU com densidade diferenciada (palmilha amarela)! Vrummmm … #skinchange #olympikus #run #inspiracao #transpiracao (em Mundo Olympikus)

anonymous asked:

what are some of your favourite ASOIAF/GOT theories, if any? (ie R+L=J, HS=Howland Reed etc.)

I mean I don’t consider R+L=J a theory at this point. I’m sure it’s true.

I also like the idea that Lyanna was the knight of the laughing tree and Rhaegar crowned her queen of love and beauty because she couldn’t get any other acknowledgment

I subscribe to the Sandor is the Gravedigger theory and while I think it’s devastating, I’m convinced Jaime is the Valonquar and he’s going to kill Cersei under similar circumstances to Aerys

And I love any theory that supports Sansa as well as the rest of the remaining Starks as skinchangers


So I was tagged by the lovely drspencerrxid and by the equally lovely eidetic187 for the twenty beautiful people challenge! I took these selfies a few days ago, and they were just kinda sitting on my phone. I’m too lazy to take new ones haha

I will be tagging:

And anyone else who would like to do it!!

i really don’t understand how people think sansa is the only starkling who likes stories and songs tho. bran and arya recall old nan’s stories A LOT more than sansa tbh. it’s true she (obsessively) likes songs about knightly valor and love and kissing ect. those bran and arya think are stupid but they both like adventures and scary stories and ones that star badass ladies respectively. 

it’s actually interesting because sansa expected life to like the songs she loved so much and she has to learn it isnt. but arya and bran fell into old nan’s stories about magic and monsters. they’re skinchangers who travel and see all the things from the stories: the children of the forest, greenseers and ghosts, haunted castles and hidden caves, magical assassins, the titan of braavos and dragons. it seems that arya and bran are going to follow in their favorite heroes footsteps too 

anonymous asked:

In your opinion, what's bran's role to play in ASOFAI? He's one of my favorites but everyone seems to think he's useless and it sucks :(


It sucks indeed how he’s often overlooked :( However, I think Bran Stark is one of the most important characters in asoiaf:

  • He’s one one of the five original POVs back in 1993 (x)
  • More importantly: he is the first POV in the books –the first scene GRRM conceived for the books is that of Bran witnessing the beheading from Bran’s viewpoint. (x)
  • At the very early stages, Martin considered that the story could be told only through Bran’s POV. (x)
  • He is also, of course, one of the original eight POVs back in AGoT
  • He’s the 7th character with the most POVs (and I’m pretty sure he’s going to be much higher when the next book is released)
  • Within the narrative, he’s a powerful greenseer and skinchanger and he is the only character who has seen “the heart of the winter”.

I have no doubts whatsoever about Bran’s importance in asoiaf, none at all.

As for his role, I talked about my opinion abut it here, but I think he will be completely fundamental in the upcoming war against the Others (I personally don’t believe in the dark!Bran theory some people have, tbh.) This is the best meta I’ve read about the endgame and Bran’s role in it! It will be key to win the battle, I’m fairly certain of that.

Brandon the Builder is one of the historical figures that is associated with Bran so many times in text, and I think it’s also possible that Bran has an equally important role in rebuiling the kingdom and creating a protection agaist the Others, the same way his namesake did, according to legend. (I tend to think of the Last Hero and Brandon the Builder as the same person, two names for the same legend, but if not, the links with this other key hero in war for the dawn are so important too!)

I also recommend you to check the asoiafuniversity tag for Bran Stark, because I assure you you will find so many interesting essays and discussions about him :)

Game of Thrones Fun Facts Episode 6! Wargs, Skinchangers and Greenseers

A Skinchanger is, at the very surface, a person with the ability to enter the mind of an animal and control its actions. A Skinchanger able to enter the mind of a dog or wolf is called a Warg, and is arguably the most common type of Skinchanger. The act of moving your body into an animal body is often called ‘warging’.

It is easier to change into the skin of an animal the Skinchanger has a bond with. Once 'merged’, their personalities will mingle and the experience will change both parties if not guarded. This is most easily seen in Rickon Stark, who while not consciously warging into his Direwolf, Shaggydog, he is clearly forming a mental bond and possibly slipping into Shaggydog while sleeping. The experience is causing Rickon, an angry child without his parents, and Shaggydog, a poorly-trained wolf, to both grow rather more feral than their older/better trained siblings.

A Greenseer is a Skinchanger with the ability to not only slip into ANY animal, (not just ones they share a bond with), but also supposedly to see through the eyes of the Weirwood trees. 1 in 1000 men may be a Skinchanger, but only 1 in 1000 Skinchangers will be a Greenseer. The only two people with the potential abilities necessary to be a Greenseer are Bran Stark and Brynden Rivers (known as Bloodraven).

Certain beasts will impart their nature on their human partners.

Dogs are easy to bond with, due to sharing so much with humans and being naturally trusting.

Wolves are more difficult, one has to create a lasting bond like a marriage. It is said in the books that a man can befriend a wolf, and break a wolf, but he cannot tame a wolf.

Birds may cause a man to lose contact to the mundane things of the earth, and only want to fly.

Cats are cruel and vain, cannot be easily controlled, only forced.

Elk and Deer are prey, and if a man wears their skins too long he may become a coward.

There are of course plenty of other animals to skinchange into. Some not covered in the above text but are seen in the books are snow (polar) bears, shadowcats (think tiger/snow leapord hybrid), boars, and goats.

A skinchanger can experience the death of his animal companion while in their bodies without real 'physical’ harm, though the process will cause them extreme pain and oftentimes severe mental trauma. When the person dies, however, they can move into an animal he controls and live what’s called a 'second life’. During this second life, their memories will slowly fade until nothing is left of the man, and only the beast remains.

The only person known to be able to enter another human’s skin successfully was Bran Stark, who was able to skinchange into simple-minded Hodor on a number of occasions, even using Hodor to fight. Varamyr Sixskins (known for the six animals under his control), was an extremely powerful Skinchanger who attempted the same act, was forced out by the Wildling Spearwife Thistle, who scratched out her own eyes and bit off her own tongue during the experience.

Varamyr actually wargs into the strongest of his old wolf companions as he lay dying (a big Brown Wolf called One Eye). Bran, much later and while warged into Summer, encounters defeats One Eye/Varamyr in combat, and Summer ends up becoming the leader of the pack temporarily, though he rejoins Bran in the Cave of the Three-Eyed Raven.

The Bear and the Wolf

(A/N) This is a Hobbit drabble for Beorn and reader. It is based off of two different Imagines. First Imagine, and the Second Imagine. Enjoy!

First Imagine:

“Imagine wandering around Middle Earth lost and injured only to be found by Beorn who decided to tend to your injuries.”

Second Imagine:

“Imagine Beorn discovering you are also a skinchanger one night when you two were attacked by a pack of orcs.”

Word Count: 804

You were running through Middle Earth one evening, lost and confused. With no idea where you were, you ran. You had to run for you were being chased by a pack of orcs. Seeing a forest nearby, you ran over to it, thinking you could lose the orcs. After what seem like hours running and hiding in the forest, you finally stopped to rest. The sun had finally set as you lowered to the ground.

You glanced down at your left shoulder, seeing blood pouring out of the gash you received from one of the orcs. You pulled out your dagger and cut some of your shirt off to wrap around your shoulder. As long as you were far away from civilization you knew you have to stop the bleeding so that you have a chance to survive until help came. At this point, as long as the orcs are still searching for you, your chance for survival was shorter than you would like.

As you sat on the ground, leaning against a tree with your hand over your injured shoulder, you begin to hear feet crunching leaves and frail sticks from the distance. Quickly, you stood up, ready to run the moment you saw danger. A tall, strong man appeared in the distance. You didn’t recognize him, but you could tell he wasn’t one of the orcs. The moment you caught a good glance at him you noticed he had a bit of animal-like appearance to him.

The man turned to face your direction. Immediately you froze in fear, not knowing what the man would do once he discovered you. Once he saw you, he began to walk towards you.

“What’s a human doing in a place like this?” he growled as he continued to walk towards you.

“I… I’m lost…” you whimpered. “I don’t know where I am.”

The man finally stopped in front of you, he soon noticed your injury. He lift his large hand and rest it near your shoulder.

“This is no place for a human who cannot fend for themselves,” he pointed out. After a short pause and examining your poor attempt to tend to your injury, he continued, “I can tend to your injury.”

You glanced up at him, making eye contact. You were surprised that a strong, intimidating man would be willing to help you. Shortly after, you and the man heard orcs running through the forest. The man with you tensed up as he sensed the orcs getting nearer. You begin to question how you were going to survive this attack since you barely escaped before. You and the man were outnumbered, and with neither of you have any weapons with you except for your dagger, neither of you stood a chance against the orcs.

You soon realized you have no choice, but to transform into your wolf form if you wanted to survive despite being unsure of how the man would react. Once you saw the orcs you transformed into a wolf, ready to fight if necessary. The man gave you a quick glance, showing a sign of being impressed about your gift. Shortly after he, too, transformed, however, to a bear rather than a wolf.
With the man’s help, the orcs were either killed or fled before the bear caught them. Last thing you remembered was orcs running away and the bear. Shortly after you had blacked out and collapsed. As you fell you returned to your human form.

When you woke you were in a large cabin like house, resting in a large bed. You attempted to sit up only to feel a sharp pain in your shoulder. You laid back down as the man entered the room.

“What is your name?” he asked, leaning against the doorway.

“(Y/N),” you responded. “And who are you?”

“I am Beorn,” he spoke. “A skinchanger. It has been a long time since I have seen another skinchanger.”

Beorn walked over to you, sitting on the bed. His eyes soon met yours.

“Thank you for helping me,” you finally spoke. 

“You may stay here until you recover,” Beorn informed you. 

You finally relaxed as Beorn stood up and left the room. You remained with Beorn for several days until you fully recovered from your injury. After you recovered, you decided to stay a few days longer to practice your skinchanging ability without having to worry about danger. Beorn occasionally watched you practice and was impressed by your ability to not only to control your power to change form at will but to also remain in control while in wolf form.

During your stay, Beorn taught you how to mend injuries so that if you ever find yourself needing to tend to your injuries you could properly mend them. The last day you hugged him before leaving.


Leaning further over his shoulder, she used her other hand to sweep his hair away and kiss the side of his neck. She curled her fingers slowly, tugging gently on his hair. “Maybe ye should come t’ bed, aye? It’s gettin’ late.” She drew her hands back to pull the sheet she had wrapped around herself back up. “Unless ye intend t’ leave me all alone…”

Spencer moaned softly as her lips found his neck, gasping pleasurably as she pulled on his hair. He nodded softly, marking his place in the book he was reading before turning to face her. “I don’t…I don’t want you to be alone. I need some erm…/rest/, anyway.”
