Maybe you'd have a few of the worthwhile ones alive at the end.

Hey, could be worse, he could follow in the footsteps of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time (the whole inspiration for this in the first place).

He won't be interested unless it takes 1200 words to describe the bundt cake, from the source of the original wheat, to the method of sifting and grinding, and three pages alone elaborating on the method of trade for the honey used to sweeten it.

He is very prolix.

I have avoided Wheel of Time due to the overwhelmingly hatred of it on Fark. From what I've gathered(from A LOT of posts) is that it starts off slow, gets sort of good, sucks again, then has a mediocre ending that they keep expanding on. Please correct me if I'm wrong(seriously, I love great sci-fi reads but hate reading never ending bullshiat).

Wheel of Time is a waste of time.

I think it was Brianne and those Ironborn we didn't know about nor cared about and a bunch of Dornish we didn't know about or care about and maybe Jon Snow iirc.  "Oh shiat I just killed everybody* anyone cares about; I should introduce an entire new cast."

*well not everybody but spoilers and all that

I just got the audiobook for the first book of the series.
I'm at about the halfway point and it just seems average.

Not bad but not good either.

It's going to be great when he introduces the shadow planet that causes the long winters and mysterious phenomena to occur when their orbits coincide every so many years.
 
2014-06-11 03:40:25 AM  
I've really enjoyed the show, and like that it isn't just heroes constantly winning, but after seeing the viper fight I'm getting a little tired of being beat down. I'm not asking for it to constantly be happy endings, but goddamn.
As for the books I'll read them when he actually finishes. Put myself through wheel of time and the dark tower series as it is. I'm happy I did read them, enjoyed the journey, but funk that waiting game noise.
 
2014-06-11 04:57:02 AM  
Of course he doesn't tweet. He killed all 140 characters.
 
2014-06-11 07:21:07 AM  
Only one tweet I want to see from him:

Brienne and the Greyjoys were are on a ship together when a storm struck. All on board were lost.

It would be the most satisfying ending those characters deserve.

I'm pretty sure that's his plan.  Like Jordan before him, he has no clue how to end the series and is hoping to push it and push it until a) HBO gives up and hires someone to finish it for him; or b) He dies.

Is that where he writes his fanfic where he has sex with Daenerys?

Wheel of Time is great if you just skip a bunch of books in the middle. Read the first six and the last three, then maybe skim through the others., but don't even bother with opening Crossroads of Twilight.

They don't have to. HBO has no financial stake in the books whatsoever, and they've already paid him for the story, notes, and outlines.
They'll just hire a few more writers to help Benioff and Weiss script the final seasons and be done with it.
