As for George, since I find him capable of almost any BS, he's capable of changing his ending that won't be written even though he has always said he won't do that. Certainly GRRM version of the story will not be brutally insane and stupid, but I doubt I will like the end of the sage either. He would also have been capable of not giving the D's the details on how Bran would become King in order to preserve something for the books, letting them of course come up with something totally asinine. IMO You're operating under the assumption that GRRM failed to tell D&D how Bran would become king. That's weird, given that the natural reaction to "Bran will be king at the end of the story" is either "how" or "why." I believe that GRRM told them how and why Bran would become king (it's NOT likely he went ad nauseum about the details) and that they chose not to ignore what he had told them. Take the Stannis/Shireen example for instance. Stannis is not going sacrifice his only child to the flames in order to change the weather forecast because 20 good men destroyed his supply lines. And to keep it real, we don't know who is going to burn Shireen nor do we know the why or the when of it. GRRM confirms that Shireen will burn but he doesn't say that Stannis is the one responsible or that she burns to secure Stannis' reign.
