  1. Less than 2 weeks! I honestly can't believe it's actually happening. I am going into it knowing that the books will be 100x different and better. Quote from notablog from 2 days ago; The Wall in A SONG OF ICE & FIRE was inspired by Hadrian’s Wall, which I first saw in 1981 with my friend Lisa Tuttle. I’ve told that story about a thousand times in a thousand interviews. (Of course, the Great Wall of China was also a factor, but I’ve only read about the Great Wall, I’ve never seen it. One day I want to visit China, but not until I’ve finished these books). To everyone who will come back and say he will never finish them. He has plans to go to China AFTER he finishes.
  2. This scene didnt bother me as it made you hate Joff even more and really seems like something Book Joff would do anyway. The thing I hated abt the Purple Wedding on HBO was the conversations between Cersei/Brienne and Cersei/Oberyn...they are both so dumb!!!! I HATE THE WRITERS OF THIS SHOW!!!!!
  3. oh lol, yall are talking about the Dragonpit at KL. In F&B that shit was completely destroyed and it had a roof that caved in. So the setting on the show made no sense, and of course the Dragons were the best fighters against the army of the dead and Tyrion killed one with his VERY STPUID IDEA TO BRING A ZOMBIE TO KL!!!!!
  4. They are just taking the place of Victarion as a vehicle to get Dany to Westeros. The show doesn't waste any seconds with further explanations.
  5. 'Unsullied Show watchers' refers to people who watch but do not read. So no, they did not buy the books. And everything else you said is far too negative and I completely disagree, why would he publish 11 chapters of a book he will never complete? And lol to this series going out of fashion. That is a ridiculous statement. LOTR sold 150 million and it came out in 1945-55 long before books were made into TV series. Wheel of Time sold like 85 million and has never been on TV. You're reasoning here is very biased.
  6. Where are you getting that fact about 'the majority dont expect him to finish'? You really don't intend to read WoW even if it came out this Christmas? forgive me but then why would you even care enough to comment on this website? idk that makes no sense to me.
  7. the vast majority of what people? Unsullied show watchers? I never expected them to read anyway. 90 million ppl worldwide have read/bought asoiaf, when WoW gets published that number will surpass LOTR as the number 1 Adult Fantasy series of all time. (HP is not 'Adult Fantasy') Not exactly what you would call 'niche'. Millions more people will buy WoW than even bought DwD, as the numbers keep increasing from book to book.
  8. Yeah, I think (I dont know) that he got fed up with D&D ruining everything and just decided he wasn't going to publish WoW until after Season 8 aired. My guess is that this season will coincide with the announcement on the release date of WoW. That would be smart marketing anyway.
  9. Yeah, I actually love these books from start to finish, every page, and I have 100% faith the GRRM will finish them. I don't much see the point of spending all this time on website discussing something ad nauseum that I don't even enjoy.....
  10. I think they just get steadily worse and worse as they ran out of GRRM material to go on. I am still so pissed that D&D have been handed a Star Wars trilogy to make #cantevendeal Like who made that call at Lucas/Disney? have you watched GOT? are you crazy? Season 7 is easily one of the worst seasons of any TV show I can think of. If I didn't like all the actors so much I would have stopped watching........ I mean if they would have just edited out some of the 'fuck's and 'cunt's it would have been better, but JFC those idiots really know how to ruin any potentially good moment by having Bronn say those 2 words 20 times in a row in one scene. I'm still mad about Jaime charging Dany with a lance, falling into a VERY DEEP pond with his armor on and then just coming up 1/2 mile downriver after her army has completely left... yeah sure he can hold his breath for 2 or 3 hours, nbd..... he can swim with armor on nbd ...... I wish Drogon had just eaten him and finished this terrible character D&D have turned him in to.
  11. I think in the books, Euron/Victarion will steal a dragon with the horn for a time. Personally I think they will steal it until the rider dies and then Dany will get the dragon back. So yeah agree that the show is just giving it to the WW's because they wanted a dragon battle on TV
  12. Yup rewatched it all, took a month+ The first 4 seasons are not that bad in retrospect, not nearly as bad as 5-6. And 7 is just total trash. Total fucking trash. I want to weep every episode at what they have done to Jaime, it is UNBEARABLE!! And ya know, I have always been Jon+Dany shipping since like book 3. I know it's cliche but in the books i have been rooting for it for YEARS, and the show has all but ruined it for me I am just hoping that GRRM's story is so insanely different from D&D's story that we will all just forget about it when WoW and DoS finally come out *pause for obligatory 'if he ever finishes them before he dies' comments*. But yeah I recommend a rewatch because it's the only way to keep up with all the nonsense. Plus it'll put you on your A game for calling out loopholes and stupidity on these threads once season 8 starts. I am guessing there will be some kind of Sansa/Dany drama at Winterfell cause obviously there isn't enough going on in Westeros we have to have some women being caddy or else what's the point? And I guess the fact that Jon wiped away MMD's prophecy by laughing at it means that they will have a baby before the last episode, in which I assume they will kill Dany......actually I assume Jon will have to kill Dany. based on Kit Harrington's comments that Rose (his wife) wouldnt speak to him for 3 days after they read the final scripts. Which may have been an ending that made sense in the books but now D&D have just fucked it all up and made it stupid and rushed so whatever.
  13. OH yay!! are we already bitching about the upcoming season?!?! I need to join in because I just rewatched the entire series in preparation for season 8. Even my unsullied husband, who in the past has gotten angry at me for being so negative about the show, was constantly asking me during the rewatch, 'did this happen in the books?' They are still using the books and the released chapters from WoW all the way through the end of season 6 for several story lines. It is just SO PAINSTAKINGLY obvious when a storyline switches from GRRM to D&D. All script and sense goes right out the fucking door as soon as they are past GRRM's writing. it's so sad. But another thing I am at least happy about that I only realized during the rewatch after Fire and Blood came out; When Alysanne flew to the Wall with her dragons she could not fly her dragon over The Wall at all in Fire and Blood. So that completely eliminates any chance of Dany flying past the wall on any kind of stupid ridiculous rescue mission of any kind in the books, also it completely eliminates any chance of a White Walker getting a dragon by throwing a Spear 600 miles an hour. I mean I knew that was all show nonsense but it's nice to have it confirmed by F&B
  14. Forum will not let me post on this thread in Internet Explorer or Chrome. It's letting me post on other thread, just not this one specifically. I am trying to close thread and open a new version of it, but forum keeps freezing and acting crazy. Edit: ok tried to post without quoting anyone and it worked. idk
  15. My 'quote' and 'multi-quote' are not working in the Star Wars Rogue One thread. No matter who i try to quote it keeps putting up this same quote box that I quoted 2 days ago. It wont let me select anyone new to quote, that same one box comes up every time. And only in that thread, i've shut the internet and the entire computer down but it keeps happening.
  16. Such good books! Cornwell And Martin are friends apparently and borrow from each other. So it's no surprise there are some similarities. But Nimue is the first thing I thought of when I read about Euron in this chapter..... The books are so good, but I'm sorry there is no way he can get it done in WoW and DoS, there will have to be another between those 2. Maybe itll be WoW, TIme for Wolves then Dream of Spring. I mean we are JUST NOW getting prophecies of Euron on the IT, there is still soooooo much to do. And both of the Arianne sample chapters she is only traveling around talking, no action has been taken and she hasn't even spoken to fAegon yet. I have no problem with the slow pace of the books (they are phenomenal) , but I do not agree he can get it done in 2.
  17. I have always suspected that when he has that horn blown it might attract dany to him for a short while as well as one of her dragons.
  18. Dragons krakens and sphinxes. Does this mean fAegon, Ironborn and Dornish will bow to him before he is stopped? What/who does the tall woman with pale fire hands represent?? thoughts?? So Euron captured a galleas out of Qarth with 4 warlocks. This was after Dany burned down the HotU, but not long after because they had just set sail after her I guess. He fed one warlock to the other 3. This was Pyat Pree's ship, he told Euron all about Dany. Euron cut his legs off, and still holds him prisoner correct? He tied his pregnant woman, Falia, to the prow of his ship as a sacrifice to the drowned God right? probably another tip he picked up from tales of Dany birthing the dragons I bet, 'she sacrificed her husband and son to bring forth the dragons' is the story I imagine Euron would have heard......... He has gone totally off the reservation and wants to kill all the gods yet sacrifice to them at the same time??? Has anyone read Bernard Cornwell's Arthur trilogy? He is just like Nimue towards the end. She even has one eye....
