I don't give a shit anymore.
I proposed this after the S7 finale.
or at least meant to in my rage/depression.
Just a few months away from this thread turning 5 years old
GoodForAnother I think it is time to delete this subboard. We can move some threads to the book club thread, some to the TV show thread, or just archive them all. Doesn't matter. Nothing matters.
My last attempt at a reread was maybe 4-5 years ago. I had no enthusiasm whatsoever and couldn’t muster the strength to get past a couple chapters.
Hot take: George's crime is caring too much. D&D's was caring too little. As such D&D are the more contemptible figures.
both are guilty of laziness.
When did you start reading? 2011? Later?
11. I SAID it was a hot take. George falling victim to his ever expanding ambitions of world building and buckling under the weight of it all is more understandable and less offensive to me than D&D writing two seasons of TV in a long weekend because they wanted to be done with it.
So yeah. You didn't even experience the 2005-2011 break which had nothing to do with the show whatsoever.
I only got into GoT after season 7 aired. Granted, there was nothing I was more obsessed with during the two years leading up to season 8. Still, I can only imagine the rage of people who got into the series long before I did.
And since we are posting hot takes. Everything that was wrong with the writing in season 8 had been present in the show - albeit to a lesser degree - since season 5.
All hail my new overlord Brandon Sanderson.
I discovered the books in HS back in like '03/04. I long since gave up on the series ever finishing, the wait between AFFC and ADWD was so long when they were supposed to be the same book that I had a gut feeling then that there was no way I would ever see the end of the series. I did hold out hope for a couple years that at least TWOW would at least exist, but that hope died a while ago as well and I really don't give a shit if it does.
I knew Brandon Sanderson’s family when I lived in Lincoln. He was a little kid at the time. I thought he did a very good job finishing The Wheel of Time given that Robert Jordan didn’t leave that many organized notes for him to draw upon. And, of course, their writing styles were different. It would be good if Martin would turn it over to someone now instead of waiting until right before he’s dead. Let Martin write his side novels and stories and someone else finish the Song.
98 here but yup. At least I don't have to read the stupid fucking takes of "grrm has already written the last two books but is just waiting to release them until after...." Anymore.
lol I feel you on that quote. For me nothing will ever top these three. “GoT is all about subverting expectations.” “If you think this has a happy ending then you haven’t been paying attention.” And to round out the triumvirate post season 8 “the ending will make perfect sense in the books because GRRM will take his time to get there.” Please, just.... no more.
Convert it to the politics board. Or a cartoon board.
Something that further insults it.
Imagine ever thinking this.
AIP has been an optimist for a while
This post is like when we got to the year back to the future was set in
Starting on page 7 we get some good 2016 takes.
In 2015 no less
I am sure with the lockdowns he will have this finished before COVID
Or get COVID.
There's ~1% chance he gets covid, a less than 1% chance he finishes WoW, and a greater than 90% chance he finishes editing yet another wild cards book.
