  1. So a 700 foot high Ice Wall held together by magic seems realistic?
  2. Tyrion was going to advise that they take CR because taking back and becoming Lord of CR is Tyrion's main goal. It's the ultimate slap in the face to Tywin, Cersei, and Jaime. Gold or no gold doesn't matter to him. S7 overall shows just how flawed an advisor Tyrion is. And I do think it is a strategic victory for Cersei. Dany's fleet is destroyed and her Greyjoy allies are essentially out of the fight. The Tyrells are out too as is Dorne. King's Landing is still safely in Cersei's hands. All in all that looks like Victory, although perhaps temporary, to me.

    Litterfingers fate in Winds...

    I think LF will survive until the last book and his death will be very different from the show. After all Sansa' motivation will be different. In the books, of course, she isn't married to Ramsay Bolton. I also think that it is possible that GRRM will go with the irony of having LF die for a crime that he hasn't committed rather than one of the countless that he has.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Deleted, too much of a spoiler. Others may if they wish.

    2017: Sons of dragon, 2018: Fire and Blood, 2019 ..

    I started out as a book fan. Having said that I will point out that I haven't bought any of the novellas or comics or histories or any of that. And I am not sure if I will buy any more books, especially any that come out after GoT ends on HBO. Frankly, none of the already released chapters has really interested me. I don't like the whole Victarion/Euron child and sexual abuse line. I have zero interest in "Harry the Heir".I just want GRRM to get on with it and he doesn't seem interested in doing that.

    What if Daenerys was Ugly?

    Baarristan the Bold may have served her out of loyalty to her family. Jorah serves her out of love/lust. Drogo would have probably raped her until she was pregnant, then dumped her into his harem. Had things played out further would Daario have killed his partners if Dany was ugly? I doubt it.

    Make Armor For Daenerys

    I never found it to be so. A Haubrek is usually around 10kg and it is well distributed over the upper torso.

    Details on Prequel Pilot Revealed

    There are some suppositions being made that I don't think will necessarily hold to be true. We are talking as though GRRM's "history" line for Planetos is written in stone. The reality is that the vast majority of GoT and ASOIAF fans have a sketchy knowledge of the "history" to begin with so quite frankly almost anything could be put in the plotline of this or any other prequel that doesn't go back much further than Robert's Rebellion. So when it is said that "this happened before that" or "of course they didn't have this" or "these people were like this" none of that has to be the way that "we" think it should. Quite frankly I have no idea or knowledge about a lot of this "history". These shows will have to stand or fall on their own merits as shows. Unless GRRM holds a tight rein on the development and writing of these shows I can see them more like the Bond films, titles and characters were licensed, plots weren't. It will all depend on how much latitude GRRM and HBO allow these developers.

    Me as well, I have no interest in this "era".

    Helgeland on his Successor Show

    Agreed, its basically "well, we're thinking of something". What I wonder is that with what, 5 projects going will each see the light of day as its own (perhaps 10 episode series, one this season and another the next?

    Make Armor For Daenerys

    in the books she has occasionally worn Mail. I'm going with the "why don't any of the Vikings on Vikings wear helmets excuse", she looks sexier in her tight fitting leathers ala a biker Queen.

    no kidnapping tyrion

    Both Robb and Ned know that Tyrion is worth more than Sansa and Arya combined. If Tyrion isn't kidnapped then there is no immediate reason for Jaime to attack Ned. Ned can proceed with his plan of getting Sansa and Arya out of harm's way before Littlefinger can cook up another reason for a war between the Lannisters and the Starks.

    Do you want some chapters to be published like Path of Dragon?

    No, I just want WoW to be finished.

    Is Dany going to sack more cities?

    I think Dany may be done sacking places (even KL, I think that the people will open the gates for her. Cersei might hole up in her Keep protected by her undead thing but even he (?) can be quick fried to a crackly crunch. I can see her sacking Castle Rock though. .

    Why is GoT so popular yet...

    I think that something that is often overlooked is how much the other franchises you mentioned were groundbreaking. Star Trek broke TV ground by exploring racial and gender equality as well as other topics, right up to the nature of God. Star Wars was unlike any other Sci-Fi franchise we had ever seen. I think you had to have seen it at the time to truly understand what it was like. King Arthur examines the nature of sin and are we doomed by fate.In LoTR Tolkein attempted to create an entire Mythology. In contrast GoT and ASOIAF are really pretty run of the mill fantasy.
