    If he had lost interest in the series then he would have published two final mediocre books a long time ago and been done with it.
  3. A shame is that people are ready to bury GRRM while he is still alive and kicking.
  4. Not moving the story? Arianne heard about Aegon's invasion and battles and on her way to meet him. Arya killed another person from her list and set her path to leave the Faceless Men. Sansa started her relationship with Harrold. Barristan and Tyrion and Victarion is probably ~70% of the battle of Meereen. Theon heard about Stannis's battle plans and Jeyne is sent to Braavos. Did you even read The Forsaken?! How can anyone read The Forsaken and claim that nothing happens? What did you expect? The wall falling down and Daenerys' invasion?
  5. The book had more things going on other than Ramsay raping his bride, they stripped everything from that storyline and kept only the part that Ramsay rapes his bride, and I know that people can get confused from watching the show but that storyline isn't about Ramsay, but for some reason they decided that he was the main character and that Sansa needs to serve his storyline instead of actually continuing her own arc. They even said it: “You have this storyline with Ramsay".
  6. That's nonesense. He is limited to 1500 manuscript pages, AFFC + ADWD ~ 2500-3000 manuscript pages.
  7. They didn't need to cast the role because there weren't any northern lords who opposed the Boltons, apparently they didn't like the Starks anyway. Tywin didn't give them Jayne Poole for the same reason, he wanted the Boltons to control the North until Tyrion had an heir from Sansa so the Lannisters could clame Winterfell and expose Jayne as not Arya. That is not the same thing as LF giving up his "Key to the North", who's wanted for regicide, and leaving there unprotected (seriously couldn't he leave some knights from the vale?!). Bolton had no reason to betray the Lannisters since there were no northern lords who opposed him. Sansa had no reason to marry into the family who murdered her family AND SHE ACTUALLY CHOSE THIS. why?!?
  8. Maybe by not have Sansa marry Ramsay in the most illogical and pointless way.
  9. Yeah, it feels like every plot point happens with no context. I agree that Martin's involvement can't fix anything at this point, with the exception of dialogues.
  10. Yes, Adaptation means "change". However, changing characters personalities and just moving them from plot point to plot point do not make an adaptation, and just because the characters have the same name, it doesn't mean they are the same characters. Regardless of what anyone thinks about GoT (good, bad, whatever), GoT is not an adaptation of ASOIAF anymore and hasn't been since season 5 started (more or less).
  11. GRRM doesn't have a problem not showing an entire journey if it doesn't serve anything. Take for example Tyrion and Catelyn in book one.
  12. The spinoff won't be a sequel, it will be a prequel of some major event that happened before Game of Thrones such as Aegon's conquest, Dance of the Dragons or Dunk and Egg. I doubt they would do Robert's rebellion.
  13. It won't happen in TWOW, it will happen in ADOS and Stannis might not even die.
  14. Dany destroying KL and the Others' invasion can happen in the same book (ADOS). Event on the books can happen concurrently and the War for the Dawn won't need 1000+ pages to be told.
