    Heresy 227 and the Great Turtle

    In my opinion Ned's fever dream about the Tower of Joy and Lyanna's death is an outstanding scene but doesn't fit / complicates the story - it's the root of many problems.

    Obviously, the blizzard is the Starks of old, a.k.a. the White Walkers, using the caves to return to Winterfell, because there must always be a Stark in Winterfell. --- Imagine GRRM told them that Jon Snow would fight Ramsay, but as the devil is in the details, 'forgot' to mention that Jon is a White Walker by then?

    If he ever finishes TWoW, I hope it opens with Jon being dead and getting cremated in the same place Ygritte was. No resurrection.

    Why can't you accept that GRRM is more interested in making money and getting adored at conventions than finishing a story that is out of control?

    I guess it boils down to Naked Targaryens (with incest and dragons) >>> Naked zombies (with facial hair and mist)

    If you still believe the books will be finished, you have not been paying attention, sweet summer child.

    Just very happy to hear D&D dropped Star Wars. The Force is strong in a galaxy far, far away.

    Hope dies last. But it's in a coma for a while.

    And that will be impossible.

    For the series to be judged in its entirety, it needs to be completed. Which will not happen. At least not in the way we expect it to be completed. Because, as much as I criticize GRRM for failing to complete, being vague and so on, it is also perfect as it is. Perfect as an emulation of our lives. Will we solve all the riddles of our lives? Learn the truths behind each story? Learn how everything ends? If he had completed the story by now, would we still be here discussing and analyzing everything over and twice again?

    Then maybe he should write his story instead of being an attention whore.

    This is, of course, crap. Maybe not every advance in technology is as visible as within the last two centuries, but for example the first Romans at 753 BC (picking the date from history class) did not have the same technology than those 476 AC.

    I read plenty of literature about this. I'm with Sphinx as a Leo because it fits with the end of the last ice age. Civilization moved North with the climate [note: I'm not denying a human-made change in climate, but there's a natural one as well], from Africa to Europe. And maybe we're living within our own wheel of time until we leave Earth and start spinning the wheel again elsewhere. Which allows me to link back to my favorite quote from LOST: "It only ends once. Everything else is just progress."

    Not saying it's true but very interesting: www.robertschoch.com/sphinx.html www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiCyhOyayyM
