    The death of Boromir in LotR inspired George at a formative age, so much so that he had to grow up and also kill Sean Bean.

    @Xy where did I characterise Benioff and Weiss? Saying they can't pull it off just means they don't have the skills that the task requires, saying they don't care is a characterisation of an attitude they have adopted, not of them as people. Now, I'm all for saying ASIOAF is one of the finest fantasy *trilogies* ever written, because George will not finish TWOW and the first 3 books at least tell *a* story arc.So B&W don't have the skill to put out TV drama that's on level with some of the finest wri...

    The first time I watched it I thought someone was going to save him like typical Disney story line, where the hero faces great danger and someone saves him right before the moment he is going to be killed, but oh boy I was wrong,that certainly didn’t happen and that’s what hooked me with Game of Thrones, that’s what made the series great, the uncertainty of the survival and sanity of your favorite characters.

    Actually I think George genuinely loves season 8.Because that season fucking murdered the whole TV show.

    zain Cersei - everyone wanted her dead Jaime -They ruined his character "TBH I never really cared about the innocent" The hound and the mountain fight was for fan service. Varys - Didn't really do anything, what did he die for? He wrote letters but they didn't acomplish anything, death is supposed to be a consequence of an act, but while he did betray Daenerys it didn't acomplish anything, but this is the least bad of the ones you mentionedInnocent - They are not important to the plot s...

    I remember when a friend was reading the books for the first time. He said right when starting the first book: "I don't know why but I am sure Eddard Stark will be king." If that is not innocence in its fullest I don't know what that is.

    D&D took GRRMs philosophy a step further and killed the series

  • Bizzy Slivovitz  27 days ago

    George is going to be like Bette Midler in the movie "Ruthless People" when they imprison her and she loses 20 pounds. He is going to walk around Dubrovnik behind D&D while the fans yell, "Shame, shame," and then after doing this every day, say, "Hey, humiliation made me lose 20 pounds!" Because all his characters have to go through the wringer: Tyrion, Brienne, Jaime once he gets his sword-hand cut off, Sansa, Jon being brought up told a bastard is born of lust and is ...
