    As far as distance goes, we've seen Tywin (did I put the Y in the right place?) handle all negotiations without any difficulties via ravenmail. I see no reason why Littlefinger (I can spell that!) can't do the same.

    I think the letter was faked too.

    It didn't sound like Ramsay one bit and he wouldn't do anything like he promised in the letter.

    How would Baelish know Rickon is at Winterfell or that Rickon's wolf is dead?

    That's what I'm wondering too. The only thing that would make sense if if Littlefinger has a spy in Winterfell and they've filled Littlefinger in (via ravenmail) on events that have transpired there.

    He wasn't actually going to do what he said in the letter. It was obviously designed to provoke a response, to lure Jon into a trap.

    Oh, so what is the "good friends with Rose wink-wink-nudge-nudge" reply all about?

    Plus someone referred to you as "Anubis" ('i' instead of 'y') so I thought it was all somehow connected.

    The heir to Winterfell is Bran who is the eldest non-bastard son of Ned Stark. Of course Ramsey may not know that Bran is still alive.

    If Littlefinger is plotting somehow with the Umbers, he would know.

    So the burned-up khals knew about Khaleesi "trusting a sorceress" but not about her surviving a fire?

    Hmm.

    Maybe they figured that was hyperbole.

    Maybe they heard about the sorceress from people who left before the fire. Many riders left before that, if I recall correctly.

    Maybe they thought she survived the fire because the sorceress was there.

    This is, I think, the right answer. Most of the khalasar left after Khal Drogo became ill, and after he died, most of the remainder deserted as well. The ones who stayed had basically defied all Dothraki traditions to follow Dany, so who was going to spread the fire story?

    Why would they even expect to be burned? The fire was not ceremonial. It was literally part of the furniture. It just didn't occur to them that she would do what she did. Once she started it was too late. They still treated her like a subservient woman. Not as a real threat.
