But I've yet to figure out a better way to spend my time.


Hey stupids, if you haven't read all the books or aren't comfortable with production spoilers, you should leave this topic now. Spoilers begin below the title card!



Get hype!

The seventh season of Game of Thrones will begin airing on July 16 2017.

Rules

1. Don't post spoilers in the Unsullied thread.
2. Don't confirm spoilers or call out people who post spoilers in the Unsullied thread. Report them!
3. Don't use spoiler tags for ASOIAF-related or GOT-related material in this thread. Everything is fair game. In the case of a significant new release like TWOW (lol), a moratorium on this rule will be imposed so everyone has a chance to read it.

Break the rules and you will be eaten by a zombie bear.

This spoiler thread also serves as a de facto book discussion thread since it's the only place on the forums where you can talk about the series with other book readers without using spoilers tags that also isn't the Bad Thread.

I used to list interesting essays and theories about the books but I don't see much point in including them here anymore unless TWOW comes out (lol). I will still include a link to the currently released TWOW sample chapters because people still might find that useful.

Resources

TWOW Sample Chapters: A compilation of the sample chapters of The Winds of Winter that have been released to the public. Includes full chapters, summaries, and partial transcripts. The following chapters are included: Theon I, Arianne I, Mercy (Arya I), Alayne (Sansa I), Arianne II, The Foresaken (Aeron I), Ser Barristan I, Victarion I [Partial Transcript], Tyrion I [Brief Summary], Ser Barristan II [Summary], and Tyrion II.

It would be like a telenovela. We open with Dany in Daario's arms in a bungalow with a slowly rotating ceiling fan. They giggle, and the thick humidity leaves their skin glistening wetly. The door swings open, revealing Khal Drogo in an open-front short-sleeved shirt.

"Dany, mi esposa," he says, as the camera zooms in on his smiling face. "Yo Acabamos de regresar de la tumba para continuar nuestro matrimonio."

But then, a tense musical sting! His eyes narrow. "Daenerys. Este hombre que sostiene en manera de un amante. ¿Quién es él?"

"No, marido!" She leaps to her feet, quickly buttoning her blouse shut. "No es lo que piensas, lo juro por los Siete!"

"Khal Drogo, puedo explicarlo," Daario says, his thick, bristling moustache shimmering with sweat. And gold. "¿No le gustaría por favor calmarte?"

Drogo's eyes bore into Daario like a physical blow, knocking the man back onto the extremely tidy bed. "Cállate, puta."

The only stories of the Tower of Joy we get in the book are either...

1. Spoken narrative and thus likely unreliable
2. Ned's fever dreams which could also be pretty hosed up

The show provides the only unbiased depiction of the Tower of Joy, so we now know that Arthur "The Sword" Dayne is actually a two sword kinda guy, and also that Oswell Whent never existed

Maybe before the fight Oswell Whent fused with Arthur Dayne DBZ style.

If he and Arya don't wind up running away together because they're both royalty that don't care about their lineage I'll die of shock. The show is just too schlocky not to throw that in somehow.

Close up of an open book. You can see the pages are blank. Slowly it zooms out and you can see only a wrinkly rear end hovering over it. It explosively shits all over the pages. The next 6 minutes are spent wiping and making GBS threads. Zoom out more and you see the rear end was none other than Georges himself. He closes the book and it gives a satisfying *smush* sound as the diarrhea leaks out. He shows the cover, "The Winds of Winter", and winks. Cue credits.

this except this

quote:

Once she was certain which way was south, she counted off her paces. The stream appeared at eight. Dany cupped her hands to drink. The water made her belly cramp, but cramps were easier to bear than thirst.

Sunset found her squatting in the grass, groaning. Every stool was looser than the one before, and smelled fouler. By the time the moon came up she was making GBS threads brown water. The more she drank, the more she shat, but the more she shat, the thirstier she grew, and her thirst sent her crawling to the stream to suck up more water. When she closed her eyes at last, Dany did not know whether she would be strong enough to open them again

Moon blood, itís only my moon blood, but she did not remember ever having such a heavy flow. Could it be the water? If it was the water, she was doomed. She had to drink or die of thirst.
