The Bard of Banefort Posted December 5, 2022 Share Posted December 5, 2022 Even though, as a book fan, I would have absolutely preferred that we had the canon ending ahead of time, I can see now how ASOIAF being unfinished contributed to the hype around GOT, since there was so much theorizing between seasons. You can’t really do that with HOTD, so it’s mostly speculation about how certain scenes will be adapted from the books, with non-book fans avoiding all discourse so that they don’t get spoiled. HOTD is carried more by shipping and fan wars over the greens vs. blacks. It also explains why ROP was never going to have the same kind of fandom as GOT. We know how the story ends.
