Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

Right, no one is gonna know any different anyways. The way all of the Wildlings were waiting on him to arrive makes me think they had no plans on leaving him at Castle Black from the beginning. Jon Snow kind of has the anti-Aragorn story. Rightful king lives out life as a ranger instead of taking ba...

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

I think he planned to live among them. His exile up north was less about him being in the Night’s Watch (there’s no more threat beyond the wall) and more about allowing him to live out his days somewhere in peace.

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

A lot of authors write outlines for their books before writing the actual books so they can keep their order of key events straight. I feel like the show writers were probably given outlines for the last two books that GRRM had written, and they were left to fill in the gaps of how events transpired...

Mark self-published the book through Fret12 first. This is the first release of the book under the new publishing company (I think).

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

I didn’t mind how the show ended as far as where the characters ended up. I would’ve rather seen a full season dedicated to the White Walkers as well as a full season with the Last War too. In general though I didn’t mind seeing Bran on the throne, Sansa leading the north, and Jon with the Wildlings...

That’s cool news to hear. Definitely reminds you more of how The Beatles wrote their stuff. Glad they decided to change things up a bit!

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

Tyrion really hasn’t been that strong of a character since S5 comparing him to his S1-S4 writing. But I will say, his last goodbye with Jaime on Sunday’s episode was one of the best scenes on the show in a while.

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

I agree that the problem with the scorpions wasn’t how ineffective they were this episode (it should be tough to hit a dragon out of the sky), the issue was how OP they were the episode before. The only thing that makes the situation make some slight sense was that in Ep 4, Rhaegal wasn’t flying all...

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

I think S7 should have been 10 episodes devoted to the Night King, and S8 should have been 10 episodes devoted to this war and Dany’s demise. The people online saying they ruined Dany’s character arc haven’t been paying attention to her (I don’t say this saying everyone should like this season, the ...

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

Bran sees a single dragon shadow flying over King’s Landing in a Season 4 vision he has (also when he sees the Mad King saying “burn them all”). I’m all in agreement that the writing has been lazy recently, but this storyline hasn’t just appeared out of nowhere. It’s been setup for a while now. “I w...

He also told you he never got around to finishing all the Dark Tower books so I have that in common with him too.

Re: Books/What are you reading?

Those other books are mostly Brandon’s YA series. The only YA book of his I’ve ever read is the newest one, Skyward. Mistborn is actually part of an interconnected universe that his YA books aren’t part of. The other Sanderson books I would recommend are The Stormlight Archive books, the second era ...

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

Part of what they suffer from is just not having enough screen time to flesh out every story. I’ve never been one to care about how long it takes someone to travel from King’s Landing to Winterfell. I don’t need to see someone traveling on a horse for 5 episodes to make that seem more realistic. But...

Re: Books/What are you reading?

I highly recommend The Stormlight Archive if you enjoyed Mistborn. There are also some Mistborn sequels out there in more of a western/steampunk setting. Stormlight is his crown gem though, but it’s an in-progress series. He’s writing the 4th book currently.

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

I’ll admit the writing isn’t near what it used to be after they ran out of source material. Euron’s character is my biggest gripe of someone they’ve butchered. I’m disappointed that the only thing they used the Night King for was to deplete Dany’s armies before facing Cersei. NK was setup from the b...

We get some decently big country artists. Demographic just sucks for rock and metal here.

Re: The Game of Thrones Thread.

I agree with a handful of those points, especially about how certain characters like Sam, Brienne, and Jaime seemed to magically survive. But I love Arya’s storyline. Her character has been progressing towards a huge assassination moment for quite some time. I think the issues were with some of the ...
