    Rethinking Saint Jon and Winterfell

    I agree that in the show they sort of "dulled" him down. Then again, it's more difficult to portray inner monologue in a visual format. I wonder how "dark" he'll turn, possibly a bit more decisive and less naïve.

    "Always the Old Way"

    I have no idea, but sounds like something Asha would say to spite her two uncles' obsession with the old way.

    Victarion's accent via Roy Dotrice... ?

    I don't know but I'm sad that I'll never get to hear Victarion voiced by Dotrice ever again. He really gave the character an extra touch.

    Is there anyone here who finds Ramsay boring?

    I find his archetypal evil character almost comical - and funny.

    Was CERSEI Joffrey's True Murderer?

    Tyrion was set to marry Sansa, as per Tywin's order, so I guess he'd leave KL in due time anyway. Cersei only had to wait a year or so and he'd be gone for sure, to claim the North. He wasn't even Hand anymore. It seems odd to me that she'd now all of a sudden be so set on killing Tyrion.

    Why do people hate Sansa?

    I don't, she interests me more than Arya right now, mostly because she is a more interesting character in an interesting setting. However, I think that might change next book.

    Has anyone been reading since the 90s?

    I would've been too young back then (I was born in the early 90s). I started reading (very slowly) in 2012, but I didn't catch up to ADWD until last year or so. In a sense it's been nice to not have to wait so much for the next books, but I guess, as you're mentioning, I've missed some of the speculation and theorizing that would've been going on. It was the show that got me into reading the books, and it was a nice gateway into other works of fantasy. Though I'm finding myself in a difficult position to find any other work to match this one. I find myself reading pre-ADWD and pre-AFFC theories just to witness how many theories actually tend to end up true. Some people have been amazingly spot-on.

    Benioff and Weiss to Create New Star Wars Series

    I'm happy I never got into the Star Wars sagas, otherwise I'm sure to be disappointed by this series. I'm assuming the ones that presumed D&D to be talented looked at the viewership ratings of GoT and not the content. Honestly, perhaps they thought D&D wrote the whole story altogether, do they not understand that they essentially rode a huge wave that GRRM had already set into motion? Well, I don't know them, nor do I know anyone in their presence to tell me how they are like, but from what I've read about them - and just watching the deterioration of the latest season of GoT - I'm not impressed.

    The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    That's what I'd like to know. Still, it worries me that he still does not seem to have a clear idea if he will require additional books. I would expect that at this point (as I'm sure he has finished at least the largest part of TWOW) he would at least be able to estimate roughly how many more books are required. Perhaps he will release an intermediate book A Time for Wolves before A Dream of Spring.

    The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Sorry for interrupting your analysis Werthead, but I just read GRRM's latest blog post (Feb. 7th, 2018) on his Not a blog-blog. He writes that he doesn't "consider A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE a series either; it's one single story, being published in (we hope) seven volumes." Is he seriously worried that he may require an additional book, or is he painting a grimmer picture here? It may just be like some people are discussing, that he has a very hard time turning a very cone-shaped expansion of material (and side stories) in his series into a converging form - i.e. tying loose threads together. Especially considering the above post which suggests that he has may have hard time writing the end of TWOW in a satisfactory manner which does this presumably. Source: https://grrm.livejournal.com/

    How do you picture all the characters?

    Well, I certainly picture Stannis more like this than Stephen Dillane (I have nothing against the actor though). http://awoiaf.westeros.org/images/7/71/Joshua_Cairosstannisbaratheon.jpg

    Anyone here reading the comic book series based on ASOIAF?

    I tried reading it some days ago. I find that the pacing is quite strange, i.e. the scenes do not portray what is happening in a satisfactory manner. I don't know how a person who has had no exposure to the books or show would fare following the plot. Also, I feel that the art is a bit off, the faces and expressions seem strange. What do you think?

    DeCon JonCon- I Don't Understand

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a namesake is also defined as "a person or thing having the same name as another". That was the definition I was going by, but you're absolutely right - I agree. Though it wouldn't stop Jon Connington from perhaps drawing the wrong conclusion. Certainly, despite Jon Snow not being specifically named after him, it would have some effect on him.

    Publishing lead time

    Oh man, just thinking about there only being like 200 pages makes me feel so depressed. I can just imagine him passing by his dust-collecting computer, and looking at it in with an anxious face. Quickly leaving of course, because he has a new calendar to help design.

    DeCon JonCon- I Don't Understand

    Some are arguing that he's simply deluding himself into believing Aegon is real, because he couldn't cope with truth. If it's ever revealed that he is fake, it would be interesting to hear him learn of Jon, his own namesake and the actual son of Rhaegar (if you believe he is). He seems to be a very tense person, driven by hatred, who knows what he'd do.
