    [–] (Spoilers extended) Edric Storm DawnSennin 4 points ago in asoiaf

    With House Florent dispossessed of its lands and House Baratheon being a phantom of its former self, Edric is likely being guarded by Varys and Aegon supporters. Varys would likely use Edric and his siblings (Gendry, Mya, Bella, etc) to prove Cersei's children are not King Roberts'.

    Mel has powders that can manipulate smoke.

    [–] (Spoiler Extended) Who downed the eagle? DawnSennin -1 points ago in asoiaf

    The books never stated how the "shadow babies" were made. Mel simply claims she can make them right after listing a long list of potions that can manipulate smoke while contemplating how she relied on "tricks" in the past.

    Varamyr's movement through air dictated that the act can be done by other wargs, who tend to be in a deep sleep when warging. Stannis' description of how he witnessed Renly's murder matches Bran's behavior when warging Summer while he was bedridden. Renly likely had torches and candles throughout his room, and the wind ghost Stannis rode upon would had stirred up the smoke to reveal his form to Catelyn and Brienne.

    There is sufficient evidence in the books to state that Mel is a charlatan and possesses no extraordinary, supernatural abilities.

    The evidence for Stannis' ability to warg is there. Like the Stark children's wolf dreams, Stannis, the night Renly is killed, has a dream that he is unable to wake from. In this dream, Stannis sees himself killing Renly and hearing a woman's scream. Such events play out exactly as they occur in real time. Also, Varamyr's consciousness traveled through the air while settling into various organisms. Based on these events, it is strongly suggested that Stannis can warg.

    I explained the issues you brought up in your second statement. Stannis, not Mel, is to blame for Renly's death.

    The key phrase is “Stannis Dreamt”. Bran, Arya, and Jon tend to warg into their direwooves when asleep. Stannis likely possesses warg abilities as well since he, like Bloodraven, is a descendant of the First Men and Valaryans. Varamyr ghosted through open air and it’s likely that Stannis had done the same when Renly died. Mel indirectly stated how the shadow creatures were made in ADWD when she was going through her potions. She has concoctions that could twist and bend smoke. Mel is a charlatan who possesses no outstanding skills. She can glamour and see through flames, and the latter is not a fined skill of hers. If anything, fire is a poor man’s glass candle.

    No, the potions and powders do not explain how an image of Stannis can appear miles away from both Mel and Stannis. There is one person who has existed outside of his body, consciously. That would be Varamyr. Before ending up in one of his wolves, Varamyr moved through the air as a ghost. It’s probable that Stannis can do the same as Stannis, being a Baratheon and brother to Robert, has the blood of the First Men and Valaryans.

    Mel goes over her "potions" in ADWD. One of them, she states, can contort smoke in such a way that it frightens grown men. It is very likely that she used this potion in an attempt convince Davos to follow her religion.

    The books have yet to fully explore the Wall's capabilities outside of being a telepathic dampener and a fridge. However, Varamyr received a stern warning from his warg teacher that men are not to warg into birds. The eagle began to combust when it was near the Wall and continued to burn as it flew above it.

    There is no evidence showing her growth. She remains unsure of what she views in the fire and her glamour is just that, glamour.

    [–] (Spoiler Extended) Who downed the eagle? DawnSennin -5 points ago in asoiaf

    Did they? No one at Storm's End claimed to have seen one asides from Davos. Also, Mel possessed a potion that could twist smoke such that it resembled whatever Davos saw.

    Spontaneous combustion of living and inanimate beings is not in Mel’s repertoire of skills. Mel took credit for the action but the main culprit is the Wall, which can block telepathic links between a warg and the being he/she would be possessing. Regardless of what the Wall does to her supposed power and what she is feeling, Mel’s abilities are delegated to glamour, foresight through flames, and showmanship.

    Yet evidence of her growth has yet to be seen.

    And she never does anything with her “new found power.” The only powers that remain consistent to her are glamour and foresight using flames, which is a poor man’s glass candle.

    [–] (Spoiler Extended) Who downed the eagle? DawnSennin 0 points ago in asoiaf

    No, it does not. She merely took credit for the act.

    [–] (Spoiler Extended) Who downed the eagle? DawnSennin -5 points ago in asoiaf

    I’m not forgetting about the “Shadow Baby.” In fact, it’s more evidence to prove her fraudulent act. She states in ADWD that she has a potion that can twist shadows into frightening forms. Her ability to see into the future was questioned by her. Most of the time she just guesses what she sees into the flames.

    [–] (Spoiler Extended) Who downed the eagle? DawnSennin -15 points ago in asoiaf

    Mel doesn’t have that kind of power in the books. Her “magic” consists of glamour and supernatural foresight using fire, which is a poor man’s glass candle.

    The Wall combusted Varymir’s eagle when the eagle flew too close to it. Telepathic signals are blocked by the Wall. Jon’s wolf dreams had subsided after he crossed the Wall with the Wildlings. However, the Wall’s psychic dampening properties can be bypassed using Weirwoods, which possess roots that connect the numerous trees through the ground.

    [–] Chapter 125 of Tokyo GHOUL:Re was perfect, the anime still has to cover quite a bit to get there I'd assume... DawnSennin 8 points ago in TokyoGhoul

    With 120 chapters in 12 episodes, I don't think that scene would be as memorable or impactful as the manga, and that's if Pierrot does not sensor the entirety of it.

    [–] 'Birds of Prey' wants to cast a biracial actress to play Black Canary DawnSennin 1 points ago in DCcomics

    Hire someone because of their ability to play that role...

    This is not the definition of nepotism.

    Aerys didn’t like either Rhaegar or his grandchildren. He was likely holding them as hostages against his son.

    The country and its practices are obvious references to Nazi Germany.

    [–] (Spoilers Extended) Brienne's path in books vs TV show DawnSennin 5 points ago in asoiaf

    Book Brienne travels with a conspicuous Podrick Payne throughout the Crownlands and Riverlands in search of Sansa Stark. She meets a number of important characters such as the Sparrows, Lord Tarly, and remnants from the Brave Companions. At her journey's end, she comes across the Brotherhood Without Banners and the company's current leader, Lady Stoneheart, who gives Brienne an ultimatum to save her and Podrick's lives. A book later, Brienne finds Jaime and both set off on a quest for an unknown purpose.

    Book Brienne's journey can potentially resemble the show's counterpart in that Brienne, Podrick, and Jaime may head north to save "Arya Stark". However, the logic behind it is unreasonable since winter is in full swing and traveling through the North can be fatal, especially since "Arya Stark" is heading to the Wall.
