    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Maybe Jon and Dany stayed back at White Harbour to arrange the arrival of Dany troops. And Brienne traveled faster to Winterfell to tell about Dany and Jon coming. Or they travel to WInterfell together with Jon and Dany and for the last miles she was sent first to tell that Jon and Dany is coming and to prepare the castle for guests.
  3. If the pace we seen in the last two books continue in Winds and Dance , then Martin will never finish the series in 2 books. It is very likely he would never finish in 4 books. The problem is that the new chapters and new POV are not good or worth it. The problem is that adds too much complexity and drives the pacing into the ground . This makes writing new volumes extremely hard and time consuming. The problem is that all the new lines like Aegon and his plot, or like Euron story ark , etc are going to slow writing the books,and will delay the publishing of a new volume. The problem is also the two books tell that Martin wants and can spring new major story arks, POV characters or factions, even if it is written great. Also the book series by adding new protagonists and factions Martin dilutes the care the fans will have for the old and new protagonists. If he wants to finish the book series and do it in 2 volumes Martin need to stop adding new complexity in the series,increase the pacing and reduce overall superflu chapters for the overall plot of the series. Otherwise we will see in the next volume that Martin is overrun in weeds and there is no way to the finish and overall the next volume Winds of Winter didn't happen anything great. Followed by a long wait for the next volume and Martin announcement that he quits writing the A song of ice and fire series. The book series is turning into a soap film(too many characters, too complex of a plot, too glacial pacing) , you only need to watch 1 episode every 50 episodes to keep with the overall plot. The only thing that is better in the Martin series will be writing and character development.

    FIRE AND BLOOD EXCERPT

    After reading about the Dornish in Fire and Blood book all i can say I joined the camp of Remove Turtles. Slavers, Dorne are slavers and pure monsters , at least until joining the 7 kingdoms. EDIT And im dissapointed that we didn't get anything about pre Doom Valyria. We know nothing about pre Doom Valyria except generalities.

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    The plots in their selves are fine , even great especially Aegon one or Euron one, but the books and show had too many major ones. There is too much complexity for a book series and the same applies to tv shows. For movies and shows the maximum level of complexity that you can show is a lot smaller than the maximum complexity level for the books. The plan was for 3 books detailing 3 major things. First book would be the Lannister - Stark civil war, the second part would be the Targeryan invasion, and the last part would be the Others invasion. The first part grew from 1 book to 3-4 books so the second and third part needed to be just as complex as the first one. But this is an insane amount of work to write, that no one could downsize in just 2 books, and no tv channel would be able to adapt such a mammoth book cycle , even if the books would be complete. So Martin convince the network they would have to adapt 7 books where in reality would be more likely around 9 - 12 books. Aegon, Briene, Quentin, Euron and Lady Stoneheart works for 9 - 12 books series but doesn't work for a 7 book series. That i believe is what keeping Martin from publishing Winds too small space in the Winds, too many plots to fit, too important to cut.

    FAegon like Quentin journey and Brienne one is a symptom of Martin loosing the plot and getting too much into details to the detriment of the overall story arc, and slowing or stopping the books path to climax and finish. The show already juggled with too many plots , adding another major one would make the show unfinished before being canceled as the books would probably be unfinished by Martin. So removing Aegon made sense both from the series practical constraints (like money and time both for filming and time for the show episodes) and from a story perspective(there are too many major concurrent plots in the books adding Aegon would be too much). All this for a secondary character that his role is of a speedbump and to make a complicated plot even more complicated.
  9. House Targaryen. They have the best story. Heritage from valyria, the last dragonriders, dragon dreams, prophets, warriors, kings. They have extraordinary appearance and managed to unite the Westerosi kingdoms under their rule for the first time. I don't consider Jon a Targeryan. I also like House Tyrell. The better ,kinder , nicer Lannisters.
