  1. What do you think is going to happen? I'm just curious Could very well be true, there's so much mystery surrounding that tent that I'd be surprised if GRRM didn't plan to do anything with it
  2. I agree that's the worst thing. No fucking way will the series end in two novels. If it takes ten years to write Winds that only means the story has gotten bigger, not smaller.
  3. https://georgerrmartin.com/notablog/2020/07/19/writing-2/ ''Even so, it has been going well of late. Three more chapters completed this past week. And good progress on several more. Still a long long way to go, though. Do not get too excited.''
  4. Is it possible Harys' crew simply hadn't heared the news of Cersei's arrest yet? I know news travels fast to Braavos, but still.
  5. We will finally be able to disprove R + L = J
  6. https://georgerrmartin.com/notablog/2020/06/23/writing-reading-writing/ I’m really surprised he’s writing a Barristan chapter this far into production, I expected him to die in the Battle of Mereen
  7. For real, I feel like I've read every theory, analysed ever scene etc. I just want some new material :/
  8. as much as I'd hope he meant Winds when he wrote this, the JCC often has book events for re-releases of volumes in the asoiaf series, among other things. Doesn't necessarily mean it's the Winds he's talking about :/
  9. When did he say this? Or is this from last year
  10. It's been closed for a while now. GRRM announced Dance four months before it was released, with a very cryptic picture of a dead King Kong.
  11. Well firstly we have no idea where these attacks took place, it should be noted that there are free cities who have run out of slaves because of Daenerys' ban in Slaver's Bay. There's pirates forcing people in to slavery at Hardhome. It might also be Aurane Waters, but in all honesty we have no idea.
  12. Yes. Also noteworthy that our three Meereen POV's are all located on the west-side of Meereen, we have very little idea on how the battle on the east-side is going. I imagine that the eastern-Lhazareen will show up and affect the battle there. I don't think the Slingers would be very important. In Barristan II we hear that the Elyrian Crossbowmen are very effective.
  13. Female executions were very rare throughout our own history. Thus far we haven't heard of any in our story?
  14. I think his implication was that he would have finished the manuscript in July, not a published novel.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. Lol. Seems like a good idea.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
