  1. I want to reply to your post in the Two Books thread that is now closed.

    I agree with you. It would have required a chapter or two from Feast moved to Storm, like Arya arriving in Braavos, and Bran getting to the Cave (it was only two chapters really). My only problem with the 5 year gap is having the White Walkers just milling about as no significant action of that sort should happen off screen.

    But a a few paragraphs for each character to remember how hard training had been or whatever for Arya, how much vision gained for Bran and how much preparation each side had done for Jon, along with the weather getting continuously worse, and maybe the first hints of winter. The Boltons could have claimed Winterfell but faced continual insurrections and found the expense of maintaining both castles ruionous (the number one killer of businesses is expansion without sufficient planning).

    Ah well, the path not taken, now I don't think we'll ever see a written form of the end of this series.

    Small questions for ADwD, v.V

    Yes, thank you, I still hadn't got to the scene with Osney, so I didn't remember at all that he was intended to be sent to the Wall after bedding Margaery. Of course, Cersei didn't have time for that, after the High Septon election... ...speaking of which, I'm on my second read and my thought about the foolishness of reforming Swords and Stars hasn't changed in these two years. I can't believe she asked so little in change of something so big the HS couldn't even dare to hope for, she gave him his wildest dream and asked little more than nothing in change, no to mention that she didn't see the (obvious) harm in having an army of tens of thousands onto which she had no power in her own city. Ok, she thinks she's Tywin Lannister with tits, aye, but that was even more foolish than I remembered. Sorry for the rant, but here comes my small question: Given that Cersei was the embodiment of stupidity in this particular case, how do you think she should have handled the whole Sparrow thing? Her solution proved to be the worst possible, but it must be given her that the situation wasn't easy at all. And she couldn't drown them all as Tywin did with the Castamere, unfortunately.

    Small question on Feast + Dance: I'm rereading Cersei's arc in Feast, and in one of her first councils My question is: do this men actually arrive at the Wall? And
