And some things they added i liked. For example I loved the battle of wits that Petyr and Varys had in the throne room.

maybe stuff like that are situations and conversations he wish he'd written in the novel when he first wrote it....maybe...maybe??

those were situations and conversations he couldn't have written in the novel when he wrote it because there were no POV characters present

the conversation between robert and cersei about how their sham of a marriage kept the kingdom together was nice...but unnecessary

are you saying varys or littlefinger should have been a pov in the first book?

because i disagree

i suppose arya could have overheard them sneaking around at some point, but really its unnecessary dialogue. helps to develop those two characters for tv, but the books don't need to develop these characters early.

really less is more when it comes to those characters imo

honestly...I'm only 350 pages into the first book..I forget that it's written like it is..I was simply meaning that..scenes that are on the show and not in the book are maybe things he wishes he could've fit in the book somehow but now it's too late. Does that make sense??

i think the dragons being stolen are one of those types of alterations that he wishes he could rewrite. as for adding those conversations between littlefinger and varys, or robert and cersei, or any other number of interactions between non-POV characters, no. i think they were added to replace internalizations

now go and read your little book :P

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
