    GRRM WoW Twist

    Hizdahr zo Loraq wait that doesn’t meet criteria
  2. Either Littlefinger somehow goaded them into it or they’re conspiring with them. I lean towards the former because he also managed to get a more sizable loan from Tywin Lannister: a man who established his reputation by killing the families that wouldn’t pay their debts. If my interpretation is accurate, then Littlefinger likely planned for Westeros to be in a state of perpetual war, where the power that takes Kings Landing inherits a debt they can’t hope to pay off and risks the Iron Bank financing one of their competitors.

    Viserys’ plan makes no sense.

    As others have said: he was being heavily manipulated by Illyrio, a concept that was established in the first Dany chapter. To be fair, Viserys was expecting that major houses like the Tyrells, Martells, and Greyjoys would join him (the Reach has more men than many other kingdoms combined). These ideas were likely instigated by Illyrio, who potentially might have had a plan to get these houses to follow through. Such a major civil war between Viserys and King Robert would have left the country weak enough for Aegon to enter with the Golden Company at the end without as much of a challenge. They either failed to account for the Dothraki's disinterest in such a war or for Viserys getting himself killed.

    He wouldn’t march on the North this close to winter. There would probably be a few ravens sent to Roose Bolton though.

    The Regret of Killing Characters

    I’d guess it has to be someone he killed off within Winds and then wrote a ton of content following it, so it’s probably impossible to guess. Hardly anyone died in Feast/Dance to begin with and if he hasn’t figured out how to move on from character deaths he made 18+ years ago then god help us.
  6. This has been the worst trade deal in the history of trade deals, maybe ever.
  7. Are you sure A Song of Ice and Fire is the series you read? The story has always been a bunch of subplots that contribute to an overall narrative. This is like saying Marvel comics has a “main” comic series.

    Why LF and Tyrells didn't include Varys to poisoning Joffrey?

    The entire thing was almost assuredly his plan, and I imagine Olenna was the only Tyrell involved.

    Do people actually believe Bolt-on?

    I think it's fair to say that there's at least something going on with Roose, potentially supernatural, and it seems like he's at least inspired by Count Dracula. With this in mind I don't think it's such an absurd theory, but the fact that it hasn't really been setup at all, and would pretty much come out of left field, makes it hard for me to get on board with.
  10. This is what I was trying to address in the rest of my post but I probably didn’t elaborate enough. What I was trying to say was that he likely ran out of steam. This is a guy that primarily seems interested in sci-fi and comic books. I’m not gonna say he doesn’t care about the series anymore or anything, but he may have had a creative spark in the 90s that passed years ago. Also the fact that this is his most significant work, and he probably wants it to be as perfect as it can be, is likely a factor.
  11. We have to consider that the first book was started after years of brainstorming. He probably had a decent layout for the beginning of the story but had little planned for where to go afterward. And of course, his enthusiasm for the series has likely gone way down. This is a project he's been working on for over 22 years. He consistently refers to the series as a weight on his back rather than something he's excited to finish. So at that point, it doesn't really matter how many corners he's written himself into if he can't come up with anything to get himself out of them. I also think he respects the series too much to just give us something more quickly, if he considers it unworthy. I honestly feel bad for him, but at the same time, I need some answers. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever get much closure with this series.
