    TWOW in July 2020 seems ever more likely

    I don't think there's anything to unite. We hear about the Umbers having a normal relationship up until ADWD when all of the sudden they hate each other. My guess is sometime after the Red Wedding they came together to plan things and feigned their hate for each other.

    Yes. I'm fully convinced.

    Well, I've been thinking of writing a longer post about this, but I'll try to sum it up. 1. The Umbers have split their troops based on age. The old men are within the walls of Winterfell, with Hother. The young ones are with Mors Umber, in Stannis' camp. This makes me think that they're working together. 2. There's a hidden Umber army out there. In the Theon chapters of a Clash of Kings. Theon hears reports of an Umber force gathering. He's later surprised when they don't show up. Mors Umber hasn't told Stannis of this. 3. The Umbers know Rickon is alive but haven't informed Stannis. In Theon I, tWoW. Theon remembers fArya being questioned on two subjects in Winterfell, he asks about the cook, Gage. And he asks about the blacksmith, Mikken. He's also wrong about what the cook Gage served last time he was ''within those walls,'' so it's clear to me that he was trying to find out if fArya is fake or not. What's more noteworthy is that the two questions he asks, directly involve Rickon and Osha. He aks about the cook, Gage, who Osha was having sex with. Then he asks about Mikken, Rickon brought a sword with the engraving of Mikken with him when he left Winterfell. Could you send the source?

    Pick your small council

    Lol. Seems like a good idea.

    From the day it was posted, this thread has been my favourite on the site. What happened throughout the course of 2015 concerning tWoW and his strange optimism followed by years of silence is something that's puzzled me and I hope we'll find out after Winds releases sometime in the next two years. It confuses me how he is sure to make an October 2015 deadline in May 2015, and when he realizes he can't make that, he thinks another two months is sufficient. Did he find a disastrous plothole? Did he not like where the story was going and had to make changes?

    It's not a difficult concept.

    He was asking you personally.

    True, AFFC's story is relatively straightforward. But I think it took so long because of the continuity. Some of the chapters he wrote from 2000-2005 weren't in AFFC or Dance. So he was essentialy working three books at the same time. It's also noteworthy that he spend a lot of this time thinking about the timeline and story structure, like with the five-year gap.

    Theon and Jeyne

    That's my point. Westerosi opportunists would just ignore the marriage. And Theon would be back to being someone's hostage. Which has been his role since he was ten.

    Theon and Jeyne

    A dead rebel An extinct house A marriage that would be annulled by the high septon or completely ignored so that Theon can become a political pawn for power over the Iron Islands. If that doesn't convince you, here are Theon's own words: ''Jeyne Poole had wept all the way from Winterfell to here, wept until her face was purple as a beetroot and the tears had frozen on her cheeks, and all because he told her that she must be Arya, or else the wolves might send them back. "They trained you in a brothel," he reminded her, whispering in her ear so the others would not hear. "Jeyne is the next thing to a whore, you must go on being Arya."

    Not really how marriages work in asoiaf
  12. That's why I'm asking, I'm not sure how you came up with that. Thank you @kissdbyfire
  13. http://web.archive.org/web/20001005212114/eventhorizon.com/sfzine/chats/transcripts/031899.html xaosx Mr Martin, why does Westeros seem the only place effected by the Others and the long winters? The other parts of the world seem not to care. George_RR_Martin Westeros is not the only place affected, but it's affected most strongly, because it's the only landmass that extends that far north. The other continent is bounded to the north by an icy polar sea. In the interview George says Essos and Westeros are connected via a polar sea in the far east of Essos. Did George later correct himself on this? I recall him doing so, but I'm not sure.

    Great question. What I'm personally most excited for is the Oldtown story, Sam, Euron, Sarella, Glass candles, Aeron etc... Also what's going on with the Umbers, it's pretty clear to me that Hother and Mors are up to something which they're keeping quiet from Stannis. And finally getting to see what's happening with Victarion and the Horn would be awesome as well
