Re: The winds of winter release date

Oh Wimsey, you're still alive! :D I think GRRM told last year we could lock him up if 'Winds of Winter' didn't arrive this year. heh, I suspect that it will sound like a Trump rally in 12 months, then! Well, the conspiracy theorist who were convinced that Martin had the whole series completed and w...

Re: will someone explain this to me please

Your basic premise was incorrect. There is nothing from either the show or the books to suggest that this might be the case.

Re: Will Mirri Maz Duur's Prophesy Come True?

The number of children Cersei has is a mistake the show made. Maybe at the time of filming they didn't know GRRM would ad that prophecy. In the books she has 3, just like in the prophecy. Ah, but if you are a religious whack-job, then the book is wrong, too: Cersei aborted her one fetus that Robert...

Re: Euron as valonquar

Latin has (had) different words for brother and sister, and there is zero reason to think that Valyrians lacked these words, too. But didn't they just go out of their way to say that one Valyrian noun ("Prince") was genderless? Why assume "valonquar" isn't also? They seem to be mimicking Latin: "pr...

Re: Do not buy into the hype of S8

Actually, S7 was great TV with a few moments of "that wasn't very good."

Re: The winds of winter release date

I feel that we definitely won't get WOW until after the final season of GOT has come out, I sort of feel Martin has been holding off for this very reason. Maybe they requested that he doesnt release them yet even though they may already be finished? As he's released 2 other books instead of WOW... ...

Have we gotten our annual "No, it won't be out this year" apologia yet from Martin?

Of course, expecting him to be prompt about it is a bit contradictory..... 8-)

I will, but it will be (as always) completely ironic.

Re: What would be an interesting prequel?

I don't think that any prequel would be interesting, unless that it is set so far back in time and/or so far away that there is really no connection to SoI&F. Otherwise, the plot is already affected by SoI&F's story, and there probably will not be a coherent story to be told. (This was the #1 thing ...
