it wont be the same, its like releasing EQ2 and expecting the same magic as EQ1 was for the first 2 expansions. these dunk & eggs arent even finished and you still have the same pressures for GRRM to finish it and he will tell everyone to fuck off. its a big mess.
Even though those were written like complete shit, other characters' endings were just nonsensical
i dont remember anymore, but i think he had the chance to do that a long time ago and rejected it. when he drops dead, which wont be too far in the future, the whole thing goes with him. it took him ten years to not be finished with this novel. its gonna be much longer for A Dreams Of Spring which is supposed to be the final book but no way will it be.He needs to license out or accept a co-author. Only way to salvage the franchise.
Except he wasn't very involved in the show at all after the first 4 seasons. Do some research before you post.Martin was very involved in the making of the TV show. I doubt he just said "this is how it ends, figure it out suckers LOL!"
Sansa got a different character's storyline, in the books Ramsay marries fake Arya.The arrival for Littlefinger was just pure garbage.
We should have been able to watch him unravel a little bit with a few good plot points to watch him change as a person.
Rather than the "Welp, surprise, this character is actually a huge dumbass and all that success and smarts was bullshit".
well i guess we know at least the shit about drogon melting the iron throne down was fake shit. it still doesnt make a lick of sense how crippled bran gets from all the way beyond the wall to the throne. like how the fuck does that even work?So Bran as king was at least confirmed by Martin to be part of the outline he gave D&D.
I'm not sure what other plot points have been confirmed by Martin to be book points.
But we at least have Bran as king 100% confirmed.
Because he had the best story. Obviously.well i guess we know at least the shit about drogon melting the iron throne down was fake shit. it still doesnt make a lick of sense how crippled bran gets from all the way beyond the wall to the throne. like how the fuck does that even work?
GRRM should just die of covid. What an idiot.
Sure, but it's not like he just sold the rights and walked away. Obviously TV has limitations that books don't and various things were changed to accommodate those limitations, but if he really just let the TV writers go hog wild with his signature property then that's on him. I think the much more likely scenario is that what we saw on TV was pretty close to the outline Martin provided. Criticize the TV writers for dialog and the pacing and whatnot if you want, but I'd be pretty surprised if the major plot points weren't just what Martin wanted them to be.Except he wasn't very involved in the show at all after the first 4 seasons. Do some research before you post.
