    If Nan is a representation of history repeating itself, and her stories are a symbolic reflection of foreshadowing, the Nightfort has just been reopened, or rather is being repaired so that the Night's King can return as well. The tale of Harrenhall could easily be the Red Keep, but we still don't have any clear indication of what the Night's King could represent. Also, in another video i just watched, you brought up the dire wolves and how their names reflect character story arcs. Nymeria gathered ten thousand ships and wandered the seas before settling in Dorne, then married a Martell and even after her husband's death continued to gain lands. Nymeria the wolf is actually fulfilling this to some extent. Also, Lady dies and much of Sansa's training is from her enemies. In a lot of ways she sacrifices her Stark heritage. The people of Skagos are said to be hairy, so "Shaggydog" would make sense in that context and may foreshadow that Rikon stays there, or goes back if he leaves.

    She was probably a former camp follower. Travelling around with soldiers means hearing lots of stories around campfires.

    Thanks for this interesting video. The fact is she is alive in the books and steel we can learn more about the old nan. I don't think she is some kind of God know everything but if she is steel alive it means that she is important and Martin have plans for her

    She is Rohanne Webber. Its so clear.

    EDIT: If oral traditions are the only ways the first men remembered, then explain the citadel's existence which was before the Andal invasion.

    There was no threat from beyond the wall. The white walkers fall right over. I bet everyone was like "why didn't we get rid of these weakling 5 thousand years ago instead of being afraid of them for so long." stab! ...and it's over...

    She could be an Avatar of storytelling; not interested in outcomes just ensuring the tales forever get past on.
    I do not think she has to be more than an old lady full of kindness and wisdom; but I always like being wrong in story.

    Your videos don't seem bad, but they're hardly videos. Show some clips from the show, cite quotes from books. You presented a question at the start of the video and in the title, however you don't really try to answer it. Obviously, no one expects you come with a definitive answer like "she is actually Syrio Forel in disguise!", but after watching your video I don't feel like I got anything out of it. Ok, you presented what we definitely know about her and then there are theories about her being somebody who she's most probably not. Most compelling part was about her being in love with Ser Duncan the Tall and while that is the most interesting bit because the evidence you briefly showed us is credible, you just skimmed over it and went on with some general stuff about her being Bloodraven's spy and some other stuff, talking in the style of a podcast where you talk about whatever gets on your mind as you go. We, as audience, don't really learn anything particularly new about the topic or get any insight about the things we did know.

    To summarize,
    - make a video, use clips from the show and cite books,
    - focus on one topic and divide it more clearly in smaller sections,
    - don't try to get a video out 3 times a week, 1 is more than enough.

    Alt Shift X and The Take (formerly ScreenPrism) are probably the best channels on YT as far as GoT is concerned. You have a great voice and I would really like to see higher quality video essays from you.
