There's little real evidence to back up most theories in the game, so the OP's theories are as good as anyone else's weather you agree with them or not. However, it's different if there are blatant factual error's such as "Gwyndolin isn't the son of Gwyn" because something like that has been stated in the game.

The Valley of the Drakes could have a connection to Ash Lake, but not necessarily in a direct way. Blighttown/the poison swamp connects to the Great Hollow, which connects to Ash Like. There's the shortcut in the Valley of the Drakes that leads to the poison swamp. It's pretty reasonable to assume the drakes made there way up through the Hollow, through the swamp, and into the Valley. As for the actual valley itself, the undead dragon breaths poison that could be in connection to the poison swamp. Since the undead dragon is hanging out by the ledge, you could assume at the bottom of the gap lies a pathway to the swamp (which, again, eventually leads to ash lake).

This is all speculation from myself, as well, that is admittedly neither right or wrong.

Just to add a little something more, keep in mind you can see Ash Lake from the Tomb of the Giants as you get closer to Nito's domain. So the Great Hollow isn't the only exit from Ash Lake.

Gwyndolin isn't the son of Gwyn LAWL.

Not only was Gwyndolin adopted because the power of the Darkmoon was strong in him, but he was taken in as a DAUGHTER so even if you ignore genetics he still isn't a son.

Noh, good theories are based on facts without straying to far from the fact. Not everyone's theories are good or logical.

One thing I wondered about was whether Seath was born scaleless or not. I don't think he was. In the beginning cutscene his body is all raw and red which isn't a battle-type wound, it's moar like his skin was irritated. He's also holding a stone scale in his hand that he crushes emotionally. Mai guess is that when he betrayed the Dragons he ripped off his own scales as a symbolic form of separating himself from them and becoming his own being.

A moar vague assumption is that Seath started dealing in Crystals. Well, Crystals could very well act as scales. So maybei he was trying to armour himself again since his scaleless body was vulnerable.

Yesh, yesh indeed maybei soh.

Why are you typing like you've got a lisp...

And where's this talk of Gwyndolin only being adopted?
