"Let me quote you, but don't respond, ok? I'm going to have the last word because we shouldn't discuss this"
Even more reason not to sell your rights until you're done, then. I didn't say he got rich off anything, books or show, I suggested selling when you finish the story if his stance is that he doesn't want the show to deviate from his book. IF that's the case, and GRRM is unhappy with the show for that reason. Or, don't sell your story rights, because, when you do, you are selling the right to create fan fiction of your work. As Drekinn said, we don't know what he said, or the context. We're going off a random person's Twitter feed.
Maybe someone else at the event will show up and post something.
So I can't get the tweet to come up by itself the way you were able to, sorry, but here is the link I used, scroll down, on my settings it says it was done at 7:06pm: https://mobile.twitter.com/AngryGoTFan/tweets
Ok, not to get into semantics, but I'm going to get into semantics, 'mountain giants' in the song need not be capitalized, same as you wouldn't capitalize mountain lion. Unless you were writing in German, I suppose. It's an interesting idea, actually, now that I think about it. I have to admit, it seems a little far out, but why have a song about it?
I don't know, though, maybe the song doesn't mean anything, and it's just a silly song...but look what happened with the rat king song? It's hard to tell sometimes what to pay attention to. I've been keeping notes this reread, and I still can't get it all straight.
I looked on his Twitter page, and saw there was no astronomy system, but not the part about magic. Is this what the magic system was referring to, the astronomy comment, or did I miss a different quote?
Unless, Ygritte's sad song was about the last of the mountain giants...and she says Jon Snow knows nothing...
But seriously, the song talks of mountain giants? I'll have to dig up the song again and check it out. Would be interesting if we had different species of giants. Although, you'd think Qhorin Halfhand would've mentioned something before his demise in the Frostfangs. He seemed to be quite knowledgeable when it came to the mysteries and magic of the Great White North (not Canada, the other one).
