I figure there is something written on the last 3 books? But it is an even more incoherent mess and half the written chapters are probably even more unnecessary POV's we don't care about. Like Hotpie goes on baking bread for 100 pages only to be eaten by Arya's Direwolf.

I still find it hilarious one of the two expanse writers was GRRM's PA or Gimp? but since quiting has churned out an even bigger doorstopper Sci-Fi series finishing this year with a 4 season TV show before GRRM finished a single book.

Scholars are some of the most pompous and pedantic people I've ever had the joy of meeting.

I'd forgotten that the books have Ayra's direwolf out there leading an ever-growing pack of wolves just loving up the countryside since all the show did was have a scene to remind people the wolf was still alive.

I read somewhere that Nymeria and her pack were supposed to make an appearance during the battle of Winterfell but they had already completely blown their CG budget by that point.

Lady is the only direwolf not to be shafted by the plot and that's only because they get rid of her early on.

Clarke has more acting talent in her brows than most other actors, including herself, have in their entire body.



Greywind also had a couple of moments, he doesn't get a lot of 'on page' time in the books either.

When you make the second entry and the debits and credits balance, and you blow them to hell.

The thing with the wolves I think was going to be central to the original ASoIaF when it was going to be a trilogy. Then it turned into an endless series that'll never be finished by the original author, and it was one of the many things lost along the way.

I don't know if I'd really call it 'lost along the way' when it stopped being a trilogy. Jon and Arya's warging is a huge part of their storylines in the last half a book he managed to poo poo out.

I am legitimately happy that George is out there living his best life, swimming in HBO money and blissfully not having anything more to do with this open corpse of a franchise. I wish I could join him.





























Like, for real, he seems like he'd actually be a blast to hang out with IRL.

I didn't like your old red text so here's some dancing cash.



I'd figure that being stuck in a house literally having nothing to do but write due to the corona virus would at least make him come up with a few notes but I underestimated him. I feel like next year if he passes the 10 year mark he has to post some kind of response even if it's just bullshitting.

He got away with not talking about the 1yr anniversary of the show because everyone assumes he hates the ending.

But a literal decade without a book?

I mean at some point we gotta be mature adults about this whole thing and ask ourselves whether we even want to read this sprawling tome written by a man who clearly lost any artistic compulsion to finish this whole project well over a decade ago.

The answer is yes.

Thats a whole lot of speculation me thinks. No one is in the dudes head but him. If he really had zero passion, he couldve just done bare minimum writing and finished the drat thing, modeled it after the show to show up loose ends and say here, Im done.
