  1. What you don't like about ASoIaF

    The biggest problem with ASoIaF is not enough Victarion.
  2. Bronn north of the Wall?

    The only reason that a Northern Lord would throw good money after bad wildlings would be for a personal vendetta.  Let's say his daughter was raped and murdered by wildling raiders and he wants vengeance, for example.  Otherwise, yeah, it's hard to think of a reason to justify Bronn's adventure beyond the Wall.
  3. No Spoilers Just Thoughts, What do you think will happen season 6 - Show

    I'm kind of disappointed that it appears Dany won't be in Mereen for most of season 6.  Apparently her storyline will be focused on her adventures with the Dothraki.  I was looking forward to her team-up with Tyrion.
  4. Do you think Arya Stark is turning evil? Why or why not?

    Sort of, yes.  She's not just dealing out justice and vengeance; she's actively enjoying her killing.  You can see her little smirks and smiles in a few pre and post-killing scenes.  Plus her killing of Meryn Trant was over-the-top and almost ritualistic.  Something is wrong with this girl.  She is going down a disturbing path.
  5. Bronn north of the Wall?

    Probably a Northern Lord hired sellswords to track and kill some wilding raiders for revenge.  Bronn wouldn't go just for the hell of it.

    Actually, those negative opinions are only popular on certain self-reinforcing forums.  They certainly don't reflect popular or critical opinion.  "Most people" is an illusion.  But it's fine.  Everyone sees things differently.  Sorry you couldn't enjoy it like I did. 
  7. Scenes Added/Changed that I Liked Better in the Show than the Book

    Brienne - Hound fight was a great addition.  So brutally done.   Better way to leave Hound for dead than via a Bloody Mummers fight.

    Robb marrying for love rather than for honor was a good change. Robb was a young horny boy experiencing first love with a sassy hotty-exotty.  I bought into it.

    They're great books that are better when re-read as one book with the chapters ordered like the boiled leather site suggests.  They're the act 2 of a 3-act play that deal with the aftermath of the war of the five kings and put the pieces in position for the final act.   I think when the whole series is done, AFfC and ADwD will be much better appreciated in retrospect.  They're not as action-packed as the 1st act books, but they don't have to be. They're building worlds and getting new players in the game.  The wham-bam action should return in the final act books TWoW and ADoS.  
  10. Small Questions v. 10104

    If a highborn man marries a bastard woman, does the woman get to assume the man's family name?
  11. Why did not Oberyn legitimize and marry Ellaria?

    If a highborn man marries a bastard woman, does the woman get to assume the man's family name?

    I suspect you are right.  There is big money to be made in doing it the way you laid out.

    How about GRRM release Volume 1 of TWoW with the dozens of chapters already written?
  14. Winds update (not a blog)

    Since it's now a given that the show will finish before the books, I think GRRM should put aside writing TWoW and ADoS for a bit and write say 2 episodes each of seasons 7 and 8 of GoT.  D&D should pick the most critical episodes and allow GRRM to write them, including the final episode of the series. That way GRRM could still have a major impact on the ending of his great saga.  I really think this would be great.

    Too bad for you, because the last 4 episodes of Season 5 were the best run of episodes the series has had so far.
