  1. Keep sharing! This is the first forum I've joined (they didn't exist when I was young and writing in my diary lol), and I love seeing ideas! Reminds me of literature courses. I haven't been on here much, but your thoughts are always good and make me think harder. Please keep sharing!!
  2. Because the show is almost over, I know ASOIAF isn't going this way; however, it would be awesome to have the Westerosi (and free-folk) discover a "New World" that's way more advanced, or find the remnants of a more advanced civilization. AWOIAF was so fascinating because there is SO MUCH that already happened, and no one has a clue.
  3. Right? I feel like GRRM will prob never expand the world and history- unfortunately. Do you think another writer might take over? Think of all the Star Wars books! The bones of AWOIAF are very meaty. I don't do fan fiction (or know much about it), but there's so much material! i also haven't read GRRM's other stuff, and I really should. I had a theory that Planetos is Earth in the distant future, or maybe it's an earth-like planet. Wouldn't it be cool to develop it all?
  4. I love the idea of learning more about the unknown world. Maybe Westeros will face its own "Doom" and the Andals will flee/ invade another continent... many more stories to come.
  5. I thought the same thing! Maybe he wanted to avoid scrambling and fighting over the rare swords.
  6. Right? I mean, I know there was nothing left there, but it's still a strong fortress. Maybe Dany really did want to back off the fighting in the south.
  7. Right?? Weird that Bran knows of Jon's parentage, but still thinks he's a bastard. Also: I guess Sam *was*'listening to Gilly?? That's confusing.
  8. Did they actually marry in the show? I remember an engagement, but there was def no ceremony (and def no consummation).
  9. Ramsey's death was the best.. I guess LF was pretty good, too. Totally took him by surprise and for once, he couldn't talk (or beg or plead) his way out of it. I love how Bronze Yohn just said NOPE!
  10. Yes!! Qyburn loves it. He probably wants to create an army of wights to fight for Cersei. I wonder how, scientifically, Gregor compares to the wights.
  11. And she recently advised Jon/ Aegon(?!) that the dragons are the only children she'll ever have. I think she'll have his baby, but something tragic will happen- she might die in childbirth or something. Tyrion was very dismayed about the Jon-Dany hookup. I hope he and Sansa reunite.
  12. I love this concept! I'm going to let it marinate and comment more, but I'm definitely interested in hearing what others have to say. One thing that fascinates me is the unknown continents, etc. We know so little of TWOIAF, and its history. Do you think the unknown parts follow the same paradigm as Essos and Westeros? What if there is another Azor Ahai, on a yet-undiscovered land? I would love for Planetos to be explored further (maybe after The Doom of Westeros?), and that knowledge could help bring a balance as well? Or would the paradigm shift again, with migration and exploration and new civilizations?
  13. I was thinking the same as you, but I wonder: did they feel they *had* to kill off Summer in order to create the 3ER Bran we're now seeing? His strong connection to Summer could have been what kept him "human," in a way. Now he's apparently devoid of emotional connections. I've always wondered about any hidden significance of Sansa losing Lady so early on in the story. How does this contribute to who she becomes? I think these questions can be better answered if/ when the books are finished.... who knows what D&D are thinking, aside from CGI cost?
  14. I wondered about all of that, too. I don't know if the show really articulates the reasoning; however, the books explain that the Dornish are crying for vengeance, and that Prince Doran is weak and apathetic. Oberyn was loved by the people. Doran felt that it wasn't murder (trial by combat) and wanted to maintain 'peaceful" relations with the crown... we knew that wasn't going to happen, though. Dorne has a long history of rebelling against the capital, so I think they were crying for justice and Ellaria promised that. My question is: Now that Ellaria and the 3 Sand Snakes are out of the picture, who is ruling Dorne? The Dornish army was never actually activated, right?
  15. We know that food was being brought up to their rooms... so once they eat and drink, they *should* be safe. Would Dany know about this? If not, Tyrion would most certainly advise her. Fate/ The Gods came for Walder Frey after the Red Wedding, after all.
