  1. I think that Tyrion wouldn't have mismatched eyes if he was a full-blood Lannister. If I'm not mistaken, all Lannisters have green eyes and Tywin and Joanna were cousins. Jaime and Cersei have green eyes, so...
  2. He did send partials to Anne Groell for editing. As I understand it, he needs to do that to get his contractual payment.
  3. As far as I understand, only one of Patchface's prophecies has explicitly come true, the RW. And maybe about the dead dancing, too.
  4. That's good to hear, at least. We need all the positive info we can get, however small it might be.
  5. I always thought that shadowcats were GRRM's version of panthers, just like lizard-lions seem to be crocodiles.
  6. He did actually say that it isn't him: "He's a really terrific addition, however, a great guy and a fine writer, and aside from me and maybe Elio and Linda, I don't know anyone who knows and loves Westeros as well as he does."
  7. It sounds like he is just doing consulting, though.
  8. But isn't that his initial plan? At least that's what I got from him in AFFC.
  9. Technically, the Blackfyres are Targaryens.
  10. I'm quite strange. I remember enjoying Feast much more than Dance and found it hard to believe that they were intended to be the same book.
  11. So Joffrey was not familiar with Valyrian steel?
  12. As PJ points out, Tyrion comes to the conclusion that Joffrey was behind it because Joffrey said he was familiar with Valyrian steel, but at the same time concludes that Joffrey couldn't have been familiar with it because he wouldn't be foolish enough to pick Littlefingar's knife. How does that scan?
  13. Wow. That is what I call an optimistic conclusion.
  14. As someone on Reddit pointed out: GRRM is a true Hedge Knight.
  15. About that, some are speculating that GRRM might go for 8 books after all.
  16. The moment I hold the book in my hands.
  17. GRRM talked a bit about TWoW at the Guadalajara Book Fair, saying, among other things, that: As if things weren't grim enough already in the books. PS: Credit to @BryndenBFish
  18. Did someone claim to have a scoop?
  19. So the worst case scenario is that GRRM got himself into not one but two new knots (and the Mereenese knot isn't even fully resolved). Looks like we could be in for a really long wait.
  20. "Once upon a time in Winter" ft. Marillion. I definitely expect it to overtake "Rains of Castamere" at #1 on Westerosi charts.
  21. I assume that Cat was the one who named Robb, then.
  22. At least there is no one named Dick of House Head. I'm thankful for that.
  23. But he did say that Tyrion's chapters in ADWD were harder to write because of their dark nature, as quoted in OP. So that's, at least, one of the problems. @BryndenBFish Do you think GRRM encountered similar problems with TWOW?
  24. While interesting, it's not very encouraging.
  25. But it is already included in the ADWD paperback. Is it their go-to spoiler chapter for all new editions?
