  1. CotF and the White Walkers

    From a purely mythical standpoint, sure. From a storytelling standpoint, no. That is information Martin would include alongside other pieces of information about the Children and Others to set up his future plot (if that was his intent).
  2. CotF and the White Walkers

    If the Others had previously been known to the First Men, had fought with the children or against the First Men before the Long Night, Martin would have told us. We have to remember that the history of the world is told to us mainly to serve the purpose of the current narrative. Now, that doesn't mean that the Children didn't create the Others before the Pact, but I refuse to believe that the First Men just forgot about fighting the Others. That then begs the question what the Others were doing for 4000 years in the North.
  3. CotF and the White Walkers

    But there is no reference to the Others fighting the First Men before the Long Night.
  4. CotF and the White Walkers

    Well then that still doesn't make sense, why would the Others first show up after being at peace with the First Men for 4000 years. Unless we're supposed to believe that the children made them during the war with the First Men and the Others did nothing for 4000 years, until the Long Night.
  5. Bloodraven is Bran?

    I don't see how this could work. There isn't proof of actual time travel in the show, how would Bran be able to actually live in the past, let alone with his child-self?
  6. CotF and the White Walkers

    Sorry, didn't mean Andals, meant First Men.
  7. CotF and the White Walkers

    Does all of this fit with the timelines from the books? For some reason I thought the Others in the books predated the invasion of the the First Men.
  8. US Politics: 50 shades of Scalia

    I just wonder if Trump is the nominee if they'll continue to fight so hard.
  9. US Politics: 50 shades of Scalia

    A bunch of other issues really just means politics, does it not? Let's not pretend that the Senate has any concerns over the nominee or about Obama, they're holding on for the off chance that Cruz will get to make the nomination. Nothing more.
  10. Anyone else like Bran POVS?

    I have always loved Bran and in ADwD I thoguth his chapters were particularly beautifully written and my favorite pieces of prose from the entire series.  I can understand that people think he is boring because he takes away from the main narrative (that's exactly what I think about Dany) but I have always loved Bran's character and where his story seems to be going in addition to the fact that I think some of Martin's best prose style is reserved for those chapters. 
  11. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    Carice did say she wasn't sure if she would be back next year, which I never understood and still don't understand. She was never in danger, but was she just trying to hype the battle?
  12. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    I just wonder if people who think Jon is really dead either understand what makes storytelling good or if they think David and Dan (and George) suck that badly.
  13. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    Also, I should add: I think the producers are getting exactly what they wanted. Book fans have long decided that Jon isn't really dead, so how can they make it so even the book fans are questioning their convictions? Be so heavy handed with the "Jon Snow is dead" talk. And that's exactly what is happening.
  14. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    It would just be such shitty writing, on the part of Martin and of the producers to kill Jon now. I think the whole "Jon Snow is dead" talk is similar to the "The Hound is dead" from the books. He's dead, it doesn't mean he won't be brought back to life.
  15. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    I think it seems foolish for Kit to lie to the press too, but why would they be so forthcoming about that information? They could have left it burning in people's minds for months and draw a huge audience to see if Jon is really dead...or you can have an interview released as soon as the episode airs and tell everyone. Nope really really dead. That just seems way too heavy handed. If they are straight up lying, that's just low on their part. But my bet is there will be some technicality to what he said.
