    Casterly Rock will not remain forever offstage, I hope. I have two more novels to go, and my plan is to have one or more of my viewpoint characters visit the Rock in THE WINDS OF WINTER or A DREAM OF SPRING, so I can show you all the wonders and terrors and treasures of House Lannister first hand. Meanwhile, feel free to ponder… could Casterly Rock stand against dragons?

    How are people still anticipating winds lol

  • So

    Dany is in parts unknown with the dothraki surrounding her
    Aegon has taken Storms end, preparing to face Mace Tyrell in batle

    Jon is "dead"
    Arya is in Braavos training and still is during Winds
    Sansa is in the vale doing who the f*** knows as LF schemes (and plots to retake Winterfell for Sansa)
    Bran is in a tree
    Rickon is on Skaagos

    Tyrion is by Mereen I think, with the second sons (and Jorah)
    Cersei is awaiting her trial
    Jaime is going with Brienne where something will happen with Lady Stoneheart
    Tommne is king
    Myrcella is going back to kings landing

    Theon is captured by Stannis, likely to die soon.
    Yara also captured by Stannis.
    Victarion is in Mereen with the fleet and dragon horn
    Euron about to battle the redwyne fleet and hightowers

    Sam is at the citadel

    Stannis is preparing for battle
    Davos is going to Skagos to get Rickon

    Arianne is going to meet with Aegon I believe,
    Tyene is going undercover as a spy
    Nymeria is going to Kings landing
    Obara I forget

    And then there's all the f***ing side plots and s***

    And in two books not only does he have to give all those characters listed above and more logical ends, he also has to build up the walkers even more. And in two books lmao

    Yeah this s*** is never coming. Figured that for a while but looking at the state of the characters its much more obvious


    post by @Synopsis from original ktt that should be in this thread. he perfectly sums up why the books ever being finished is highly unlikely

    How are people still anticipating winds lol

    i'm not anticipating it anymore since we already know how everything important will turn out. and chances are grrm will pull a quentyn in the future books with some other unnecessary characters as well(just because at this point he is addicted to creating new characters and places)

    however, i believe if winds does not come out this year grrm has actually no intention of ever releasing the books. or if he does, he will release them posthumously

    Stannis the mannis still alive in the books?

    it's a damn shame. the northern chapters in adwd(jon, asha, theon) still give me chills. really wanted that to continue

    thats why i stopped in the first place

    read the books before season 1 was done, started seasons 2-3 with ideas already implanted. Didn't like the changes so stopped.

    It's very fitting that George is writing WoW while in isolation surrounded by snowy mountains . This book is going to be something special, I expect it will be an extremely dark book

    I need the darkness. So many things have been building up to these conflicts. I can mentally feel the tension

    Yepp. This is what EVERYTHING has been building up to . I really believe this book will overall be more important than Dream of Spring. Winds will be the climax of ASOIAF,

    Watched the show years ago but recently bought the first book. I am aware of most of the changes but I'll take this downtime to catch up on the series fully.

    I'm on my 2nd reread of the series, and I'm 500 pages in to A Feast For Crows

    This might be my 2nd favorite in the series now, which is interesting because it used to be my least favorite
