I'm a girl, and you're

what? Yikes.

I'm pretty sure that before the last two seasons someone wrote a long post about how they're totally sure that TWOW was totally coming out to coincide with the start of the next season, so it makes sense that it would happen yet again. At least it won't have to happen anymore after this.

No no. You see, TWOW is finished already. GRRM is secretly working on A Dream of Spring for a special double release right before the final season of GoT begins.

We'll know in a year. I can't believe we're so close to the end. I mean, I'll be closer because I'm going to read every single spoiler that gets posted as soon as it gets posted and blast it across the entire internet for old time's sake.

One of the best times in this thread was when TVIV spoiler baby people got all horny for the chance to someday "get revenge" on the bad thread by spoiling stuff that's on TV and not out in books yet and then nothing came of it because no one in here gives a poo poo enough to not watch the show and/or not just read the spoilers on their own.

Like lol they thought people care about the books the way they care about a HBO boob show. As if anyone could possibly top the care levels of people who got into all out wars trying to figure out if someone was just theorizing or SECRETLY talking about the books lmao.

Edit: I suppose it's possible someone might have cared about the books that much but what are the chances they share the same brain disease as TVIV where you think you're entitled to dictate to the internet what they are and aren't allowed to post in your presence rather than just having a modicum of self control and avoiding a particular forum.

lmao describing the studios cynically deploying all their licenses in order to get oo's and aah's from an audience as a VG player using all the pay-to-win poo poo in a game rather than playing it is way too astute of a take.

It would be awesome if all the licensed property in the movie was blurred out until you deposited the requisite number of tokens into your movie seat. Whenever something new came on the screen, the movie would freeze for 10 seconds so the audience could deposit tokens.

Man if we got a page for every new fan suckered into buying a Wild Cards book because "hey I liked Game of Thrones and it's the same author" only to be disappointed as hell... we still wouldn't have the next book because GRRM lost the ability to condense narratives.

I'm starting to think that he was told by a fortune teller at one of the cons that he would live so long as ASoIaF is never finished by him.

And forget Sanderson finishing it for him. Let Abercrombie do it.

Oh who am I kidding...it'll be Preston Jacobs.

My theory is that he made a deal with the devil to write "The best fantasy trilogy" of his generation. Which he arguably did. The twist being of course that books 4 and on suck, and will never be finished.

My favorite thing about Winds is all the hopeful theories about when it will be released. First it was surely gonna get released because the show was about to pass the material he had written. Then it was surely gonna get released because he'd want to stay relevant. And now the next one will be people getting hopeful about him doing a release in conjunction with the final season.

Eventually they'll realize all there is Wild Cards and death.

There's one last stage that people will go through. It'll be "okay, now that the show's over, let's see how it all REALLY ended, right George? ...George?" People will desperately cling to that one for a year, maybe two at the most. And then finally, thankfully... silence.

I'd say he's scared of losing all relevance once the book drops so he's stringing people along, but he'd still be on hook for A Dream of Spring. I think he really truly doesn't know how to continue the story or stopped caring about 10 years ago.
