Why did he sell the rights to HBO before finishing the books? That was probably the dumbest move he could possibly make in his career. The books kept him rich on their own.
Are you kidding? Someone offers you a huge amount of money for the rights to an adaptation for TV, which is currently stagnating? They could have changed their mind at any time. You want that money you need to take it.
He stopped caring about the books years ago, I mean we all know he's at deaths door, why would he spend the last years of his life working on a dumb story about dragons and zombies?
Instead he's just been rolling in cash and telling his gullible fans "I'm totally gonna be finished year, for reals this time I swear!"
More like why did HBO buy the rights to this fat fuck's unfinished work when he's to smelly and lazy to finish them?
It's like Madhouse getting the rights to Hunter x Hunter when they knew Togashi was never going to fucking finish it.
I think that he is genuinely surprised that he didn't kick the bucket yet. I am too. He doesn't plan on finishing the damn thing and probably didn't since 2010. Sadly the show turned out to be a "turn off your brain and look at the pretty colors between tits, asses, and guts" kind of show, so there's no hope for good closure.
>More like why did HBO buy the rights to this fat fuck's unfinished work when he's to smelly and lazy to finish them?
Because they saw series potential and aren't too lazy to finish the story?
Paid off big time for them. He's the loser who has to watch someone else complete his life's work.
Only reason he hasn't finished the books yet is that he
>keeps gettng distracted by free holiday offers to Dubai.
Lazy fucker is a total sell out and doesn't care about the books. I'll put bets on that the writing will be worse than DnD's.
ah....you kids and your assumptions.
most people don't read. Most people however loves the little flicker box and the hand held gadgets. so years from now when all of us are either ancient or long since forgotten, people will probably have eye implants or eyes up display or minds eye displays by which to view Cersi being shagged by Jaime over their dead son's body.
A true creator wants to affect people long after He's gone to dust. Rejoice though because in time you youngin's will catch on to what's up, I guarantee you.
All things will be explained to you in the fullness of time. usually after you've grown weary and achy and liver spots dot your body and in and around your eyebrows. hopefully it'll be before you turn to ash though because some of you are damn slower than shit down a slide.
this old spongy fiver of mine hasn't had action ina while, care to suck on it? but if you do, i want you to play with the back of the glands because it itches sweetly sometimes. has these little spines on it, and when i try to scratch them it aches feels good all at once. maybe if you lolled my dick in your mouth like gum, ensuring to allow the back of the glands where those white spiny things are to be scrapped by your teeth every so often would be nice. and keep that up until i'm overcome by sensation and my heart ushers me into eternity---i'll pay you good money for the pleasure.
>For that to happen, my publishers told me, they would need the completed manuscript before the end of October. That seemed very do-able to me... in May.
I mean it's not bad as I thought it would be. He might release it any time this year which is still good. Fuck those jews for skipping all those plots to race the books. They're probably doing the happy merchant face as we speak. Now everyone in the world is going to be forced to watch their shit.
It's become such a fucking joke at this point.
Why can't he just write the fucking books? It's not like he's being asked to run a marathon. He could knock out the rest of the series in 6 months if he just sat down and wrote instead of traveling everywhere to do interviews about what he's going to write
Because television was always his preferred medium and now he has someone to finish the story for him since he wrote himself into a corner
>More like why did HBO buy the rights to this fat fuck's unfinished work when he's to smelly and lazy to finish them?
What? HBO doesn't give two shits since the shows is printing money. It's the publishing houses that should care now that the show is spoiling shit for everyone.
How do you even get closure on something so sprawling?
The white walkers need to be resolved. The Lannister and Stark families need resolution. Someone has to be on the throne in a somewhat stable geopolitical situation (or the metaphoric throne completely destroyed, starting a new era).
>Lazy fucker is a total sell out
Dumbass. If you had made it and finally had a chance to live the good life, you'd really slave away at your work? Or would you take the chance to enjoy yourself?
We were clearly getting there. Tyrion/Iron born/Dany plots were all merging, as were the North/Stannis/Wall plots. Dorne/Aegon/Dany/KL were clearly being set up to clash too. It might take more than two books, and a cheap shortcut or two (white walkers/wild fire killed everyone there), but it's hardly impossible.
meanwhile in the same 10 years Brandon Sanderson has released pic related:
GRRM is such a hack fraud. You know what other author is going exactly the same way, Patrick Slothfuss.
> I never thought the series could possibly catch up with the books
this is why grrm allowed hbo to film an unfinished series
he thought he had 9 seasons worth of material in the books that were published at the time including adwd. i remember when season 3 ended he said the next two books had 4 seasons worth of material.
basically he was delusional
pic related what Jim Butcher wrote the last 11 or so years:
It doesn't matter how "shit" those books are, GRRM has literally NO EXCUSE to not have produced about 2000 pages of quality writing in the last 10 years.
>Why did he sell the rights to HBO before finishing the books
because they payed him to
>That was probably the dumbest move he could possibly make in his career.
He is a rich famous celebrity now, it worked out just fine for him
>ah....you kids and your assumptions.
>most people don't read. Most people however loves the little flicker box and the hand held gadgets.
Could you patronize me some more, millennial
I don't think you understand how important Dragon Quest is, anon
>Because television was always his preferred medium
> tfw no filmed Wild Cards
I did my business with him then when his narrative turned into "Dare you enter my magical realm" fetish bullshit and the other writers cringed off of the project
He is a procrastinator, man. This is not something you change easily. I know how shit it can be because I'm in the same boat.
This is an accurate description I found while procrastinating
winds is not going to come out this year
the rule with grrm is to take his expectations when he will finish and multiply it by 3. he said it would take him a few months, so with that and the 3 month delay for the publishers, we'll be getting it sometime early next year at the earliest
>Think of it as two different tellings of the same story.
Why not four, that worked out well right
A quote from his blog post,
>Maybe. Yes and no. Look, I never thought the series could possibly catch up with the books, but it has. The show moved faster than I anticipated and I moved more slowly.
I can't believe he is this naive. From the moment season 1 debuted everyone knew that unless GRRM underwent a massive change in his writing style that this day would come.
>Mago, Irri, Rakharo, Xaro Xhoan Daxos, Pyat Pree, Pyp, Grenn, Ser Barristan Selmy, Queen Selyse, Princess Shireen, Princess Myrcella, Mance Rayder, and King Stannis are all dead in the show
>Princess Myrcella ... King Stannis
Confirmed dead once again, stannisfags and worst Myrcella supporters on suicide watch
friendly reminder that he thought the adaptations of a feast for crows and a dance with dragons combined would make up 3-4 seasons
and because those books are shit it'd probably be cancelled before he ever had to release another book
ultimately the only reason they decided to make a show based on unfinished material is due to the red wedding
if you watch any d&d interview from the first two seasons you'll immediately see they only care about the red wedding. they were so caught up in how 'shocking' it is that they didn't care how terrible the rest of the material was. they straight up say that their main goal was getting to the red wedding before the show got cancelled.
April 27, 2011 - Martin finally admits ADWD is done, his manuscript is at the editors
July 12, 2011 - ADWD is released
He made THE SAME EXACT POST five months before ADWD came out, so It'll be along shortly nerds
to their credit thats the biggest climax in the story of what has been released so far in the books and they probably had faith in george since a dance with dragons hadnt been released yet
>tfw he dies before the books are finished and the show becomes canon
>yfw David and Dan star in a double penetration porn flick with Emelia Clark
>yfw our boy preston jacobs gets hired
Because it was a large sum of money and George thought it would be good (which it has been, mostly), many other people approached him beforehand with similar offers
I can't wait until season 6 so the board can be flooded with good memes instead of cunts waxing lyrical about whether Poe Dameron is gay or not
So let me get this straight. I paid my money to the fat fuck, I've been reading for well over ten years the books, and now I'm going to get the sixth one -which I've been waiting for since ADWD- ruined by that shitfest of a tv show?
That fat ass better get serious about the books, with the show set to end sometime in 2017/2018, people are gonna care less and less about him and he'll get fewer and fewer invitations to shit. A lot of the attention that he so desperately craves and so clearly loves, is gonna dry up.
it certainly does. Berserk is just too far away from the conclusion and one chapter every god knows when (he's back to irregular releases) is clearly not enough to probably even reach flowerstorm king, let alone a confrontation with griffith.
Hard to say. The lifestyle of a mangaka is obviously a thousand times more stressful than that of a lazy writer who writes 2 books every decade, but GRRM is really fat and old... Either way it wouldn't surprise me if either of them died in the next 10 or so years.
he said he doesn't want anyone to continue the books for him. According to that, the series should end with the show. In reality, it's pretty much a given the editors will give the books to someone else
They had a lot more content than they used. The writers and showrunners cut out a fuck load of shit to streamline the show, for the worse in many regards. Just look at Robb Stark vs Tywin Lannister, the books go into great detail explaining what each army is doing, where they are, why they're doing it etc. In the show, everything was omitted because 'it's not important!'. They spent all of series 2 talking about how fucking overpowered the Lannisters were and how the Starks were guaranteed to win, and then they just completely gloss over it in series 3 and don't even attempt to explain why Robb hasn't just run in and fucked the Lannisters up. It was literally explained away by "oh he's probably fighting some other battle off screen".
>he knows he's got terminal brain cancer
>he's literally just stretching this out so he can die before he finished his art
>he'll be memoralised eternally for having been cut off just as he was about to finish his life's singular achievement
Pretty crafty desu
I'll never stop reminding people who complain we'll never reach Dream of Spring that there could possibly be another book after that.
You know, just to crush their hopes for good.
He just said that if either of the final two books ends up being 1500+ pages long he might split one of them up like affc and adwd, he never said that he'd actually write eight books
Lets be honest here, D&D cut way
too much shit
I'll dump some pretty old art for funs
it's their fanfiction anon! Let them do what they want with it you mean fuck.
Absolutely this. Funny how Ned's death is the reason the show became so fiercely popular, but the lack of Ned is also the reason the show dipped in quality. No character has managed to fill his boots so far, Robb Stark was obviously supposed to do that but they fucked his character up so badly he ended up being one of the worst characters on the show.
>mfw the fun I'll have spoiling bookfags
Going to just stick spoilers mid sentence in other unrelated threads just incase
>mfw reading the books for the first time and getting to Ned's death
that was, honest to god, unexpected as shit. I used to think of him as the main character basically, I still wasn't in the mindset of the book not having a proper MC. It fucked me up real good.
Are you retarded? He is exponentially richer and more famous because of HBO. His shitty book series has sold more copies since Game of Thrones than in the 15 years prior to that.

/got/, I dreamed I was old.
It'll be out before the end of summer
the publishers only needed like two months for publication, which is insane.
I have a feeling they were editing translating, and writing all at the same time
all of a sudden we got reports of translators being told to set aside time
right on time for another July release
Yeah, and to credit the TV show they also pulled that shit off really well. I knew it was coming and it still blew me away. The highlight of both the books and the show, shame there are so few other decent characters to fall back on.
At least Tolkien finished his shit and didn't have to see the travesty that the adaptation of his books were (basing this on Christopher Tolkien's own opinion and how well he knew his father)
George better not fuck up with Davos, Victarion and Jaime. I'm relying on them for then next book if we ever get it.
Also my secret dream is that he'd give more space to Loras' brother, Garlan. That man is bro as fuck and a legitimately interesting character.
But of course he's never going to do that, can't wait for more Daenerys chapters.
>tv writer, draft dodger, no tbqhfam except some ghoul
The saddest thing is that hes admitteed theorists[some] have guessed how it all plays out. Seems like hes just trying to flip the script at this point and that explains the delay.
>Sam finds a secret passage
Are you stupid? Coldhands takes him there. He tells him everything. Sam didn't find shit; he and Gilly would've been dead if Coldhands hadn't saved them.
he even talked about an ebig plot twist he thought up on the spot that would completely turn the series around, something that would set it apart from the show completely and that strangely enough fits with everything (or so he says)
he's clearly trying to fuck theorists in the butt
The reason he can't finish is because he doesn't know what he's doing. The series was only supposed to be 3 books and that is painfully obvious because after A Storm of Swords the story turns into a clusterfuck. You could tell he just kept expanding on more and more material like the Ironborn and Dorne because he probably thought, "oh shit, forgot about these guys, have to include them somehow". Everything about Essos is a gongshow, really outside of The Wall and R+L=J I bet he can't figure out where he's going with everything and he's just making it up as he goes along. I mean, he needs others to refresh him on his own fucking plot and characters ffs. When your fans know more about your own series than you do at this point, it's clear you've lost control or you don't care anymore.
they most assuredly read the manuscript before they signed the contract. authors turn in their books about 18-24 months before publication. especially mainstream books like these that get their own advertising campaign.
Don't deny the fact D&D could've really done a good job if they commited, like HBO and George did
I don't like one bit how the fact they're cutting stuff from the show is already implicitly telling us those things won't matter at all in the long run for the end of the series. See Coldhands, Aegon (assuming he's still cut?) etc.
>finished his shit
GRRM's procrastination is nothing, absolutely NOTHING in comparison to what Tolkien did with the Silmarillion. That one took him almost 25 years, and at the end he didn't even want to complete it anymore and was just evading the work by answering fan mail all day 'erry day
Can't wait for all the bookfags who had autistic breakdowns every time the TV series didn't perfectly match the books are forced to watch the show for the story progression they've been waiting YEARS for that fat fuck to get to.
seriously, I just mentioned the turnaround on ADWD was like two months
>yfw the show is already canon
ANYONE CAN DIE EBIN XD GAYME OF TROONES
I hate characters deaths so much. They're such a cheap way of getting emotion out of the reader.
I can understand it if it comes at the end, but the way Martin does it, you're just left with a less interesting story.
Reading AFfC and ADwD feels vacant as fuck, and not just because the characters are separated.
I assume many people are just not going to watch the tv show and try to keep away from spoilers until the book comes out, if it ever does.
What you say also doesn't make much sense because it's true some things are going to get ruined in advance by the show but the story is taking a very different course from the books, so any bookfag who wanted to follow the story would stick to the books since the tv series does not progress along the same path.
No one will finish the books. Martin ordered it to be so, and he also ordered all his notes to be burned in case he does die before it's finished.
Read the blog more often, boys.
I guess he wants a reasonfor us to not wish him dead.
He started writing the series in 1991.
If I had autists like you guys for an audience, I'd say fuck it too and live large on hookers and blow and not give a fuck after getting the cash.
make way for the GOAT sister fucker of Westeros
anon what exactly do you think he does instead of writing?
What a selfish fat fuck.
Robert Jordan had the decency to ensure his work was finished in the result of his death. Yet this morbidly obese faggot would rather take it to his grave.
Imagine going to see The Game of Thrones in the cinema and having the main character have his son crippled, then nearly killed by an assassin, then finding out about royal incest before being killed, all in two hours and with most of the non-Stark cast being removed because of time problems.
Then the second movie has a new main character, the son who's out for revenge and who just has a bunch of cool medieval battles.
It'd be the Godfather and Godfather II all over again.
>tfw r/asoiaf is in full denial mode and still thinks GRRM is ever going to finish these books
He's almost 70, obese, and writes like a snail. I wish I was as adept at deluding myself as Redditors.
I know, dude, I know. And then you go to his blog and all you see is these sycophants posting shit like "TAKE YOUR TIME GEORGIE!!!" or "People are too stupid, you go man. Live your life."
It makes me so mad.
I actually remember where I was when I was reading that. (And when Bran was pushed out the window) Can't think of any other book that did that for me. I guess it will be just a great unfinished series at this point.
With a cheap knock throw together by hacks to give us the gist of what happens.
let's be fair it was 5/10
AFFC was 3/10
Post yfw this book series was made into a mega show beloved by millions, mostly normies, while the Wheel of Time will never get a good adaptation and will only be remembered by turbo nerds
>WoT not ruined by having to cater to normies and TV execs
>tfw I've read nearly every fantasy series but haven't read wheel of time
I'm partly afraid of being disappointed, partly saving it for my dying years, and partly terrified of the final books because Sanderson is one of the worst writers I've ever read.
Should I just do it?
Aside from being hot there is a reason he fucked his sisters.
>tfw King's wife tried to make him go sober in his prime so he'd go to the bathroom and chug mouthwash to get fucked up
goddamn. To think I was actually hyped to see what it would come up in the next book.
also I love how D&D decided not to stick to it considering it was one of the best parts of the books. Truly makes you wonder.
what the fuck? He reaches Stannis' army and is clearly seen to be alive. Why would anyone think he's dead?
> no Melisandre
>no Barry stan
see, ya fucked up already pham
Except nobody cares since Berserk has sucked ass ever since chapter 100 or so. Everything past Griffith's transformation is absolute shit, except maybe that scene where he meets Guts at the graveyard, along with his princess flight.
And the pirate arc... Well, safe to say I won't touch Berserk ever again.
Is this a bad joke? Jon was pretty dull. Jaime was too, almost nothing happened compared to his book 4 chapters.
The only really terrible ones were Daenerys.
the quentyn chapters were pretty unbearable lets be honest
i found it to be a fucking mess desu
so disjointed. at times it feels like youre reading some lunatic's stream of consciousness rabbling about this fantasy setting he invented and he expects you to be familiar with the geography, major historical figures, current geo political climate and other esoteric shit about the setting all along. it was like the dark tower but with shit structure and pacing.
speaking of other things that would be/are going to be wrecked by tv adaptations, the dark tower is going to be fucking rubbish
Really? I liked them. But I guess only because I saw the finale coming and I liked the Tattered Prince.
At least this has a chance of being finished, Berserk will never be finished and the only way I could see someone wrapping up Miuras clusterfuck posthumously and quickly is asspull fairies teleporting Guts to Griffith and they fight and die
please don't compare shit authors to grrm. jim butcher makes his books way wordier than they need be, they always have a new baddie and a new deus ex machina. shit tier writing.
asoiaf, on the other hand, is a joy to read and re read. george takes his time, but the results are great. the more one reads them the better they get.
Why? This is a serious question. I don't even hate you for it, although The Name of the Wind is the worst book I've ever read.
>there is literally no story
>annoying mary sue*
>some whore love interest and bdsm implications
>harry potter inspired school
Just what about it did you like?
anything that has to do with the free companies I find interesting af
but those chapters were worse than Dany's pham
Tolkien wrote much, much more than just The Silmarillion which itself went through at least three rewrites. You seem to forget The Silm isn't just the 300 page book published a few years after his death, it's 10+ volumes worth of unfinished material, including tens of legends within legends and 3+ invented languages. He also worked very little on it during the years he wrote The Lord of the Rings and when he had finished it no one wanted to publish it (his dream was to get it published together with TLOTR), so he had to settle on the latter. And since you seem to have read his Letters, you'd remember the first half is correspondence with his publisher about The Hobbit and then his son who was fighting in WW2 about writing TLOTR and most of the second half is answering questions about The Lord from readers and explaining stuff.
It's true that it took him a lot to start work on TLOTR though.
don't forget he'll also need to wrap up the whole 'they still have a bejelit' plotline. No way Berserk is ever going to be finished
I think the Quentyn stuff is the most redundant out of everything Gurm has done so far.
Like, what did it add? We got a tiny bit of info on some mercs, and we got to see what Volantis looked like.
All of that could have been done via other characters, it seems totally pointless. He's literally only there for the "Sun rises in the west and sets in the east" part of the prophecy.
DO IIIIIIIIIIIT! I was impressed by the series actually. Just one character or premise in the series could fill an average high fantasy story, WoT is packed with them. And Sanderson did his best to copy Jordan's writing style so the change was barely noticeable.
>every adaptation gets up to the Eclipse then stops
>they're doing it again
>the quality gets worse every time they adapt it
the writers don't want to cover the troll cave rapes and demonic horse rape
Being Beserk is suffering.
I think Quentyn was mostly used to show us just how much of a crafty motherfucker Doran is. I need a good reread of the series though.
Speaking of which, I can only hope he'll decide to give us some Doran badass moments.
>She narrowed her eyes. "What is our heart’s desire?" "Vengeance." His voice was soft, as if he were afraid that someone might be listening. "Justice." Prince Doran pressed the onyx dragon into her palm with his swollen, gouty fingers, and whispered, "Fire and blood."
Dany's dragons ARE going to turn on her, she's been built up as this fire immune, dragon taming walking God so much that GRRM will have her about to win then become dragon shit in a huge twist. It's the only way I see her story coming to an end now that she's been exposed as a shit ruler and irrational idiot in the novels/TV show.
Not him but I've only read the hobbit and lotr, I've always been confused by all the other books, what is narrative and what isn't etc.
What should I get? It doesen't help that everything has been published differently in each country, so I'm specifically asking about english editions
>I think Quentyn was mostly used to show us just how much of a crafty motherfucker Doran is. I need a good reread of the series though.
Sure, but did we REALLY need POV chapters for it? I mean he could have just showed up at Mereen.
George probably spent months writing and thinking up those chapters, that just really added nothing to the narrative
Which HacknHack will change. Showing Dany as anything less than a Mary Sue will upset the tumblrinas too much. At least that's something that's not GRRM's fault.
I had a hint his story was going to somehow merge with Tyrion or at least have an influence over it, that's why I think they showed us all that mercenary shit. I wouldn't bet on it though, the sooner I reread it the sooner I can verify if Quentyn's chapters really are pointless
the boring Dany chapters led to her riding a fucking dragon
Quentyn just got cucked by Dany, pretty meris, the tattered prince, rhaegal, viserion, and life
By god I hope those dragons all turn to Aegon's side and we get Aegon the Conqueror reborn.
Aegon the Reborn or Aegon the Restorer/Resurrector (by placing the Targaryens back on the throne) could be good names
That would be fucking glorious anon. But it probably won't happen because Aegon isn't a part of the show, and they are following the books, at least loosely. In any case I doubt they'd refuse to cover the guy that ends up sitting on the Iron Throne.
And there's also Victarion's horn.
is there a more alpha character than the Conqueror
I still think there's an outside chance
>Aegon at least shares the throne at the end
>D&D don't want to add a new character + arc
>They decide to merge him with Dany
>Merged JonCon with Jorah already
>Books end with Aegon/Dany on throne, show ends with just Dany on the throne
I don't think a character not being in the show means they're dead/useless, just that somebody else has their storyline
The dragons will be on
no one's side, they eat Dany just as she's about to climb the throne, take on the white walkers, they kill each other in a final battle as some of the remaining Black Watch/Stannis men/other armies fight to the death with the white walkers/dragons at the same time.
Come on now.
I hate Dany as much as the next guy but I wouldn't go as far as calling her a Mary Sue.
At least in the last season she was shown to be pretty incompetent and clueless.
she ignored each and every meaningful advice she was given, sure she had counsellors and shit but it's not like she listened to them when it mattered.
>now that we can we should go to westeros m'lady, that's what we came here for, you have at least two cities ready to fuck you in the ass and you have no meaningful way to keep the town
>B-BUT MUH CHILDREN
and that was the beginning of the end.
You realize LotR is basically around the length of a single ASoIaF book right? Maybe just a little over that.
Also, LotR was way easier to write because it's a simple story. I'd imagine most of the work was done on worldbuilding by Tolkien.
I'm not defending Martin, because he created this clusterfuck, but it most certainly IS a nightmare to write in at this point, that I don't doubt.
Jon is propably worse when it comes to Mary Sue-factor
superor Dayne coming through
King was/probably still is a massive drug addict while in his prime. He pumped them out so fast because he was on every drug under the sun all day long every day.
Tfw he admits he doesn't even recall writing most of his most famous novels because he was in a drug haze
>mfw thinking about ToJ scene in S6
How bad can they fuck it up?
>mfw for some weird reason I always imagined Darkstar like he-man just with different hair color
I swear reading his parts with that in mind was fucking hilarious
His character will die soon
His character has bussiness being there anymore
Jaime is just painfully underused
poor Balon. I legitimately like the guy. Jaime even admits he's the only one aside from Loras and him worthy of being part of the kingsguard, and says his abilities with a bow are unmatched.
Why do I love Darkstar so much? It's pretty simple when I think about it. Darkstar isn't just the best character in the series, he might just be the greatest character of all time. Just imaging him riding through the sands of Dorne, the wind in his hair, his mighty steed below him. As he rides through the red mountains, the ladies swoon at his very scent. They know how he smells, the essence of his smell is sold in Planky Town under the the name of "Greenblood Orgasm." The very nature of Darkstar is mystery. could he be playing a deeper game than even his creator realizes? The answer is yes, he has transcended such boundaries as the written world, and has free will to do whatever he sees fit. However, Darkstar is filled with such guile, such arcane craft that he does not even use these powers. Why, you might ask? You will never know, for the mind of the Darkstar is not one that is easily penetrated. Darkstar is such a force of nature in his realm that nothing can truly touch him, the only thing keeping him bound to the page at all is his will to exist within the preordained boundaries of his world. Darkstar is not only beyond the comprehension of us, he exists within a plane of true focus and beauty. Observe his playful smile, his gorgeous and rippling biceps, his gallant nose, and most importantly, his eyes. His eyes, like pools of saffron, provide the only glimpse into the true machinations of Darkstar. Do not stare into them. Many good men have gone mad in the attempt. Darkstar is not just a character, a formless collection of words and images, he is himself is the binding that holds the saga together. Without Darkstar, the entire series, the entire world of Westeros as we know it crumbles. The Trident would stop flowing without Darkstar, the Reach would become a desolate crater, and the Wall would melt without his frosty gaze.
anyone else think the show is going to end up being closer to GRRM's original planned ending, now that he has admitted to coming up with new things and changing the books as he goes?
So even if he finishes the book the show will be closer to his original vision, without all the nonsense and twists for twists sake. I imagine ADOS will be when he really starts going off the rails to make it different from the show.
because the average age of /got/ posters is less that 14 and they will pretend it was a meme when you call them out but we all know they have posters of him hanging above their beds
He was always comic relief, which was fine, but last season he was used in the worst storyline of the series and contributed nothing to the story.
He has shitty one-liners and is forced to interact with the sand memes. The worst line of the show, bad pussy, was directed at him, so he's kinda guilty by association.
I have hope of him gaining a little depth again next season, maybe he and Jamie will go to the riverlands together?
>Emilia keeps getting fatter and fatter
>they make her wear flowing dresses and sit down with her hands over her gut for most scenes to hide it
>she just keeps expanding
>soon they'll have to hire a guy to hold her down and shove DNP in her mouth for four weeks
FUCK YOU SHITLORD! THE HUGO AWARDS ARE IMPORTANT AND ARE BEING ATTACKED! AND IF GRRM DOESN'T TALK ABOUT FOOTBALL WHO WILL!?!?!?
im the leaked notes from way in the beginning, GRRM wanted Tyrion to get cucked by
look it up I'm not even pham
jaime is pretty much confirmed for going to the riverlands but not much word on bronn. it would make sense though. theres also talk of at least one of the sand snakes going to kings landing
holy fuck how did I even forget about it. Truly top notch writing, just like when we see Dany taking a shit but somehow worse.
>maybe he and Jamie will go to the riverlands together?
hopefully. the adventures of jamie and bronn would be pretty excellent right now. much other story branches in the show have burned out for me now
>her cunt became the world
its only bad when D&D do it
>the guys who wrote this are the same guys who won at least an emmy for the writing
I just can't.
Jesus fucking kek I couldn't believe my fucking eyes when I fucking saw this.
Like what the fuck?
Why is she attracted to somebod who could be her dad?
And more importantly how the hell does she infer that he "wants a good girl"? Does she know about Lollis (who he was bored with anyways)?
Requesting that pic of /tv/ being angry sandniggers hating the Sand Sneks and then suddenly loving them after she showed her tits please.
>killed by a frog-man
It's OK, we got great writers to fill in for GRRM on Game of Thrones!
Season 5 got more Emmys than any other season, we should respect that! Right?
everything he has he has his fans to thank for. how many of them do you think would've started reading his books had they known they would never be finished? would've spread the word about them? this fat fuck has made a fortune pretending to be writing a series he never had any intention of finishing.
The first trilogy is pretty mediocre outside of the second book. The whole leper thing was inspired, and the rape scene was surprising, but everything past the first trilogy is into the trash it goes tier. The fourth book is laughably bad.
Im fucking angry at D&D for their creative choices
like did they really think that Aegon fucking Targaryen coming back to invade westeros with a golden company of 10,000 wouldn't be an interesting plot point
and you know they didn't cast a jon con/aegon
