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

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.

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...

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.

SO I just googled TWoW because I haven't looked up much since the Theon chapter and the Arianne chapter had been released/read.

Apparently, back in February, GRRM read TWO Ser Barristan chapters at some event.

Do not read any further if you don't want to read spoilers about things going on after ADWD.

In the first Ser Barristan chapter, he is basically gearing up the knights he has trained/is training for their assault on the armies surrounding Mereen.

In the second chapter, the battle is going on, and Victarion arrives. At first Barristan thinks it is Balon, and then realizes he had heard that Balon died. He then thinks it might be Theon. Eventually, he realizes that whomever it is is fighting FOR his side.

So, it looks like Dany may

now have her fleet. But what happens when Victarion realizes Dany is MIA? At least it appears that business will finally be done in Mereen
