  1. I think it's definitely interesting, I think it's great that Martin tried exploring other places outside the european-inspired Westeros, but the execution of it was not that great.

    the dwarf woman's dream in storm of swords.

    Well I first responded to the part where you said it was ''ruled out''. Excuse me if I misread it but I assumed you meant that it was impossible that it referred to the scene with the doll. And I did get the Hitchcock thing, but since my interpretation of Sansa's scene is different, I don't see it as the kind of situation he refers to.

    the dwarf woman's dream in storm of swords.

    What do you mean it's 'ruled out'? Sansa destroying the doll IS what the dream refers to. Or are you saying that that scene is just a coincidence matching the old woman's dream? It's not a red herring, it is what it says. But - and this is what I thought you guys mean with all those threads - some people say it will be used later by Martin as foreshadowing something else. I disagree. The ''significance'' is in the dream being metaphorical; by reading it you would never think of a doll and a small snow castle, but of a more literal event, or at least the ''giant'' representing a person. And the fact it's Sansa would be surprising, but it turns out to be a doll and a snow castle, naturally. Neither that part or the first part of the dream are straight, literal, visions (is Sansa's hair actually made of serpents?) (Oh but apparently the second part is not, according to some, Sansa! Woah. We're at the 'directly contradicting the text' phase.) I don't see the problem with it. And I don't need a Hitchcock explanation to explain something so simple, that million writers have done before, and continue to do. But you guys are free to think of endless possibilities that will never happen about something that has already happened, and I am free to not be interested in discussing those alternate realities.

    the dwarf woman's dream in storm of swords.

    Unlike some people here, I believe the second part refers to Sansa destroying Robert's doll inside the Winterfell snow castle, at the end of the novel, as one would realize after reading that part. But apparently that's too simple for some folks. I do not envy Mr. Martin.
  5. I myself have little faith that we will ever see the end of these books and for that reason I've made my peace, if you will. And I have no hard feelings towards Martin or towards these series. I honestly haven't cared about the rest of it for many years. I love it, yes, and I will still read it again, and enjoy it while doing so, but for the past 4/5 years I've been slowly letting it go. And what else is there to do? If I'm wrong and we get to read the books then great! But if we don't I won't care and I just hope that people don't gang up on Martin because of it. He owns nothing to us and he's entitled not to finish this if he doesn't want to. Watch the show, read something else, read fanfic, make your own ending. I know it's frustrating but it hasn't been months or a year since Dance come out, you know what I mean? A part of me remains optimistic (of course! I love this series, so how could I not be?) but. Shit happens.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I honestly can see number 4 happening in the books but with somebody else as king or queen at the end instead of Tyrion. So if that happens on the show I would actually be pleased. Out of those 4 options that's the one that seems more likely and fitting (I would let Tyrion remain Hand). In my opinion there is no way number 2 will happen in the books (the first part, not so much Tyrion dying) and I doubt they'll put it in the show; it's just not the right ending for this show/series. I also don't see number 3 - Dany being queen - happening, and thee Night King winning seems unlikely, although being the one ending not affected by the books, who knows what D&D will pull.

    What's going to fill the largest part in TWOW?

    The story in Essos.

    Bran's next chapter

    I agree. Bran's next chapters will be very interesting. I find it surprising that some don't quite care about skinchanging or green dreams but I absolutely love that aspect of the series, and Bran too. But the chapter I'm anticipating the most is definitely Melisandre's,.

    Wow, I never noticed that v.17

    "I will tell you," said Davos, "if you will tell me who betrayed me." It could only have been Salladhor Saan, and yet even now he prayed it was not so. The red woman laughed. "No one betrayed you, onion knight. I saw your purpose in my flames." - Davos III, ASOS "If the wildling had meant her harm, she would have seen it in her flames. Danger to her own person was the first thing she had learned to see, back when she was still half a child, a slave girl bound for life to the great red temple. It was still the first thing she looked for whenever she gazed into a fire." - Melisandre, ADWD

    Was Tywin Lannister a villain?

    "Was Tywin Lannister a villain?" Yes.

    The Illyrio/Aegon thing

    Tbh I'm torn on this subject because part of me believes Aegon is who he says he is (it makes sense narratively and symbolically); however another part of me believes he's a Blackfyre, MOSTLY cause I've read the novellas so I have that info in mind (but that's the thing, this is not information contained in the main series; also - if we hadn't read them, would you believe he or Illyrio or Varys are Blackfyres or would you just believe they're con artists?). But I have some questions, if I may: if he's a Blackfyre what would that entail exactly? What would that /change/? Only his supposed birthright I guess but why is a conflict with Dany inevitable? Or it isn't? Sorry if you've already talked about this, but I don't follow these discussions.

    Will Arya end up marrying Jon?

    Dark Sister

    Yeah, and will it even appear? I'm not so certain...... this is one of my pet peeves about some of the discussion on the series: namely when it comes to the Blackfyres but *ahem* (that said, I do love Targaryen history). Moving on. Just to generate more discussion, do you guys think that there's some kind of pattern as to why the sword was owned by Visenya, Aemon, Daemon, and Bloodraven, and why it was those people who had it? And do you think that, IF the sword appears by name or is recognized as Dark Sister, that that can give some clue to who will wield it next?

    Dark Sister

    Yep, I genuinely think it would be way more interesting if he was the real deal, but what do I know
  15. I read your thread that you linked to and it's very interesting! I think it fits and it would be an unexpected ending for a lot of fans, and refreshing. I don't know why but we're always (at least I am) sort of convinced that the climax of the series will take place in the North, at the Wall, that we end up blind to other possiblities.
