  1. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Wow. That is what I call an optimistic conclusion.
  2. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    As someone on Reddit pointed out: GRRM is a true Hedge Knight.
  3. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    About that, some are speculating that GRRM might go for 8 books after all.
  4. Parts of 'The Winds of Winter' you are looking forward to

    The moment I hold the book in my hands.
  5. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    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
  6. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Did someone claim to have a scoop?
  7. 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.
  8. Arya's Big Hit

    "Once upon a time in Winter" ft. Marillion. I definitely expect it to overtake "Rains of Castamere" at #1 on Westerosi charts.
  9. The Stark family. Not you Robb.

    I assume that Cat was the one who named Robb, then.
  10. Worst names in aSoIaF

    At least there is no one named Dick of House Head. I'm thankful for that.
  11. 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?
  12. While interesting, it's not very encouraging.
  13. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    But it is already included in the ADWD paperback. Is it their go-to spoiler chapter for all new editions?
  14. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    I know that he is controversial and I disagree with most of his theories myself, but I think he could be right on this one, at least partially. Thoughts?
  15. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    Yeah, there is nothing wrong with his oratory skills.
  16. Revisiting the HOTUD Prophecies

    I agree. Dany proves that her dragons are the ones that are woken out of stone and not the ones on Dragonstone. Hence the "slayer of lies".
  17. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    More than anything, I think he is right about Dorne declaring full war on the OT once they see/hear about Robert Strong.
  18. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    On the other hand, he might just have used TWoW as an exuse to decline this guy's invitation. That con is small and he probably gets many such invitations.
  19. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Doesn't GRRM send in chapters for editing as soon as they are finished? IRRC that is the case for TWoW, at least.
  20. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    I got the exact opposite feeling.
  21. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    It's probably not worth it, but don't let that stop you.
  22. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    Yeah, with a glass candle you can make a person hear your voice or see a vision, not mind control in the traditional sense. But I don't think it's a stretch to say that someone could have used glass candles to make a few pious fellows think that they saw ,or heard, a god, which would inevitably lead to a religious movement.
  23. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    I just re-read it too. It was a long time since the last time, I think I misremembered. He just said that Doran was willing to risk his son's life, not sacrifice it. Sorry. But then again, Quentyn feels that he might not pull it off, but goes on anyway, out of duty. Doran might have felt that the task was too much for Quentyn, but sends him regardless, because his plan demands it.
  24. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    Interestingly, he isn't the only one to suggest something like this. Adam Feldman does too, in his essay: https://meereeneseblot.wordpress.com/2014/03/11/water-gardens-and-blood-oranges-part-iii-quentyns-duty-and-destiny/
  25. The Deeper Dorne by Preston Jacobs

    I don't mean to troll. I really think that this series is interesting (especially compared to some of his other ones) and wanted to hear opinions of experts. At the very least, I think he might be right about Qyburn working for Doran.
