    FIRE AND BLOOD EXCERPT

    Oh yes, I've read all 5 books. I meant the whole series, when it is finished and published. lol It's like when you read about an event, a story, and then you go on to expand. That's how I like to read these books. But yeah, if this isn't connected much with ASOIAF, I might give it a try. The illustrations seems good as well, and I do love art work. Strangely enough, I read a review on Amazon, and it seems that the italian version doesn't have them. Ugh! I buy them in english anyway, but I thought that was weird.

    You're a temptation, Lord Varys. I normally do not like to read other "side" materials before the "main story". But I'm seriously thinking to break that rule with this one. The informations you gave seems good enough for me.

    Ditto. You've got to love that ole grumpy man. Made me laugh so much. I'm tempted to buy the book just to read about him.

    "various book deadlines"

    The mood can change again. I'm not a writer but I make videos and I work on 3-4 projects at the same time. If I work constantly on one project alone, I get a bit tired mentally. I need to switch between project to keep my mind fresh and creative. Unless of course, I have deadlines or I feel particularly creative and in the mood for a particular project. In that case, I continue.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    In the first part he said that too. But the music is quite a strong foreshadowing indeed. The only problem I have with that theory is that if the NK arrives to KL, that means WF has fallen. I don't see the WW passing by and just leave it there, and I have difficulties thinking a Westeros without WF. You never know though. That could be it. The most bitter part.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I can see Bran warging into Viserion, but destroying KL? Just no. Jojen, Bloodraven, CoTF, Summer, Hodor all these people died protecting Bran all this time, so he could end up destroying? It doesn't make any sense to me. The snow in KL doesn't necessarily mean it's the NK either. The snow started in KL in the season 7 finale already. It could be very well Dany herself.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    This. So far, I tend to be on the nihilistic side a bit more. But I'm not sure about that. It's just a general feeling I get from the books. I need the resolution as well, in order to judge. p.s. Fun fact off topic: I'm watching Fortitude Season 2, and only now I realise that the character of Dan Anderssen is played by Richard Dormer (Beric in GoT). Ugh! Lol

    Season 8 Predictions?

    Exactly. I'm surprised when people start comparing the two and don't get it what Tolkien was going for. I agree with that too. I had no problems with that. I mean it sucked and it was such a powerful, intense and sad moment. I mean I loved Ned and started to read books after season 1 because of his character. But I do not see either of these deaths as shocking values, only. Certainly there is a big shock involved but they do bring the story further. Their deaths bring some important development to the narrative and characters (see Arya, Sansa etc.). I didn't mind Robb's wife being stabbed either. Maybe they added her for shock value but I always felt in the books she was left there smh, as a "lost" character. Although it does make sense in the books also, that Robb wouldn't bring her with him at the wedding. But I'm okay that they did finish her story as well in the show. I don't necessarily agree with everything either. But it does make me think whether he's right about it. I think people will be divided with whatever ending GRRM has planned. I guess @jcmontea is right, it very much depends on what he writes post ADOD.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I think Viserion's death was the way to give the NK the "weapon" to break the wall. There were no human costs during that mission though. Well, apart from Thoros and other no name characters, which we didn't care much. Same for the huge battle in ep.4 No human costs, not even Bronn. I really do think the whole idea of going beyond the wall was about: a. give Viserion to the NK and b. have that big meeting in the season finale, which was a way to finally make Jamie break with Cersei.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I agree. The show to me had a nihilist outlook till the book lasted. It's indeed the books which I see more as such. It might be one of GRRM problems in finishing the books also. This guy explains it rather good, IMO.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I just saw the video on my notification. I haven't watched it yet. I have developed an aversion for Sansa since Season 6. I feel like her character went down south and her only "ideology" has been a whinning: Me! Me! Me!

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I find GRRM quite nihilistic but truth be told, if it is for lesson learned, history has taught us that the mankind has never learned the lesson. Bittersweet ending would be great for me, but I am not sure what that means in GoT/ASoIAF. Some people think LOTR was not bitter enough. To me it was cause a world without elves was very sad and not at all fascinating anymore.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    Nicely put. I would like that. Although they don't seem to have put much importance to the crypt, except for those scenes of Bran and Rickon in season 1.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    That would be ideal. But it's tricky and difficult to be done properly, narratively speaking. I feel like they have lost sight of the story. I'm not sure what's the story is about anymore and I think it's going to be difficult for the books as well. If they can pull this off it will be great.
