Game Of Thrones Grown Up Talk. Do Not Enter Unless You Have Finished All The Books

I am just now midway through Storm of Swords and had a question about something.

Did Arya warg into her wolf when they were being pursued after they escaped Harrenhal or was it just a dream?

yeah, I think it is implied that pretty much all the Starks have the warg trait in their blood... as do others in the realm...

I almost think that the Targaryens of old also had the ability, and warged into their dragons...

Incorrect good sir. The Targaryens controlled their dragons using magic. Like the horn 'dragonbinder' currently in the possession of Victarion Greyjoy. I believe that horn will ultimately be sounded by Daenerys because the horn is inscribed with these words: "I am Dragonbinder, No Mortal man should sound me and live, Blood for Fire, Fire for Blood"

Daenerys is not a mortal man.

She is mortal. Remember, she had her hands burned by Drogon. Her immunity to fire is up in the air as of ADWD.

That isn't what I meant. Remember the LOTR books when that girl kills Sauron's guy? He said he couldn't be killed by a man, and he was right; he got killed by a woman. Same holds true here. The horn can't be blown by a mortal man (the one guy who blew it for Euron Greyjoy died because he was burned from the inside out). Strictly speaking, Daenerys can blow the horn and live because she is a mortal woman.

Great thread. Ive read all the books that are out - what is the ETA for the remaining books?

lol... years and years probably... The show will probably even catch up and pass the books...

Originally there were only going to be 2 more books, but I think GRRM's been quoted as saying there might have to be an 8th book...

There are a couple... maybe several... chapters that have been released from The Winds of Winter (the next book)... If you haven't found them yet you should check them out...

GRRM has no fuging clue what to do next.

He will die before he finishes and go down as the greatest troll in history.

lol he's signed on as a writer for HBO shows now so maybe that delays the books even further... who knows?

The only comfort I take is that the show's producers are in the loop and have been given most of the important details... So, if something does happen to GRRM, maybe the show can just finish out the series...

robert jordan says hi

FWIW I like Brandon Sanderson's books better than Jordan's.

Just personal preference...

I know this is a fear of yours! :P

eh. not really. its more about the journey than the destination.

why fear the inevitable.

the first 6 books of WoT are remarkably fun. 8 was the last one i read. i wish to god i'd stopped at 6. i'll look into sanderson.

edit: oh he's the guy that finished them. yeah at this point i really don't care what happened to anybody and i've gotten a couple people to fill me in on the endgame anyway.
