    POLL: Will you continue to read the books if _________

    Closely followed by Nymeria And whilst it would be another case of incest I suppose, I'd love the books end with them walking off into the sunset together to have lots of lovely puppies I am a sentimental fool at heart Dont really care what happens to all the silly humans! Though I hope Davos as a happy ending as well.

    Hello from Eurocommieland

    Try looking in antique centres and larger charity shops. I have had a few ottomans in my antique shop over the years. They remain quite popular However, I don't find them particularly educational. Quite dull in fact.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Being charged and convicted of treason doesn't necessarily mean you are guilty .... Pure speculation: Tyrion does something which saves the day/ends the war. He is the great hero at the very end. But to other characters, it appears he did something treasonous - maybe he kills Jon and Dany? A bitter-sweet ending? Tyrion goes to his death having saved Westeros but no-one but he knows it? Perhaps he deliberately chooses not to prove his innocence to protect someone else? The cinematic ending would, of course, then another character arriving just in the nick of time to save and exonerate him.

    I always start badly, but this year has been terrible.  Playing WC this week ....  The advantage of a poor starting position is the only way is up :D   I hope!
