  1. Just watched the episode. Laughing at Stannis again. He can't even convince the bank to give him money, Davos must do it. Ridic.
  2. ...unless you know about the Great Spring Sickness that Targs DO get sick and that it's a myth that they don't? ;) http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/The_Great_Spring_Sickness
  3. Is that so crackpot? If he's the younger brother that kills Cersei...
  4. It's not 'how did he survive that', it's 'couldn't they have spread it out better rather than doing that in 2 consecutive episodes' or, 'skip the arrow(s) as he had his bye with Ygritte in the episode before'. Now they had her teleport over just so she could shoot him. Ridiculous is ridiculous.
  5. I don't think we saw horses with the Wildlings, right? In the book Mance 'took his fastest horse to ride to Winterfell', but I don't remember seeing them with horses. How could Ygritte ride at all? Even if a few Wildlings have horses, was she so high up the ranks she was allowed to learn, or however that goes? I don't know what to say about Jon getting his eyes almost clawed out one day, and the next he doesn't get 1 arrow, but 3 shot into his body (did one hit his leg?) If all 3 were in his back I suppose he's not going to limp around next season, but just moan a lot? :lol:
  6. Does that mean no living men can stop the Others (this time)? I wrote a post quoting Jon's Winterfell dreams only 2 days ago, and so I remember that the second part, where he got further than normal, featured the opening of graves. Very LotR, maybe even disappointingly so, but it could mean that the old Kings of Winter will be the ones to defeat the Others?
  7. That dead Benjen sure has many shoes to fill.
  8. Yes, I did mean you. :D I really hope you're right, but unfortunately it might be very optimistic (it can be done, if the side projects are limited). I think that what's perhaps important to keep in mind is that yes, there's a chunk of 200-ish pages written and edited (?) already, and then probably some more that hasn't been edited, but those chapters that are were cut out of ADwD rather than being fresher material so while they will be new to us, they were written before he officially started writing TWoW. If you've seen people who are less than hopeful, that's one of the reasons. It's been said for a while now that there's x amount of pages ready, but the amount hardly changes. Now, you're totally right to keep optimism high, though, because what are you going to do without it? Let's not mope and pray that his pen and mind will be as swift as he wants it to be! :D
  9. You mentioned twice now in your last two posts that GRRM is basically writing faster than a speeding bullet to get the book out in 2014. Where does this assumption come from? Do you have any insider information, or any new information that we might have missed, or is it just you being (probably way to) hopeful?
