    GRRM's (Brief) Thoughts on the Final Episode

    I think George has all but stated that doesnt happen. Stannis doesnt kill his daughter in the books.

    Varys and Illyrio under the Red Keep

    I always got Varys's gelding to be a reference to blood libel and all the tribulations one has being from a forskaken line. What I dont get about Varys is his extreme religious adherence to the possibly many lines of aegon the unworthy living life as extreme libertine bravados in the golden company. Reminds me of the movie The Departed. Matt Damon's very organized character has an unusual ordered life as an FbI agent whos real loyalties reside with the mob. Its hard to understand why a 35 year old college educated guy would have such adherance to 60 year old libertine criminal.

    Sex and stuff - How different is Dorne?

    With regards to Jon, Eddard never seemed to be the brightest man. He never asked King Robert, nor did he think of another place for Jon to be.

    Poll: Is the House with the Red Door in Dorne?

    Kind of a lot of manipulation and planning went completely unnoticed by Viserys. Was Viserys just that dumb or was he too young to fully understand, work with the situation dealt to him. Like why didnt the golden company take them in the first place or once they were kicked out of Braavos?

    Secrets best left buried (Fire & Blood)

    me thinks there are a lot of sorcerers still alive in Valyria. Food there still and perhaps a lotw of dragons.

    GRRM: Some folk got it right.

    We do this type of speculation on Rothfuss too. But mainly about Rothfuss shitting himself playing videogames instead of writing.
  7. There has to be more skin in the game, some blood in it. Illyrio seemed quite amused selling Daenerys to the Dothraki. Illyrio didnt hide how much he mocked Viserys. There seemed to be a grudge against House Targaryen
  8. Could Faegon perhaps have multiple lines of different targaryens in him?
  9. seems like perhaps carrying around the egg ends up killing the embryo instead leaving it in the dragon pit

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Given we don't even know it was a chimera or if someone specificially put the chimera into her.

    Plot line that GRRM avoided

    They couldn't make the king job exceedingly law and rule oriented and intellectually grueling. Couldn't make it a job no one really wanted.
  12. Borros must've been extravagantly drunk that night Aemond and Luke came to bid his announcement.

    Plot line that GRRM avoided

    You would think aegon the Conqueror wouldve creawted a ruling system that prevented Dragon Civil War.

    Plot line that GRRM avoided

    I'm very very surprised the Velaryons after a few generations werent given dragons for there own.
  15. This. This is huge. Aemond Targaryen never married into the Baratheons once Borros sobered up. Hell his own mother didn't want anything to do with him.
