A Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones)

Postby TheBookMaester » Fri Jun 05, 2015 10:19 pm

Well. These thoughts are too much to just stay in my head anymore.

WARNING- THIS THREAD CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHAT are the producers of the show thinking??? They are leaving out soooooooooo much:
-Aegon's story
-Sam's travel to Oldtown to become a maester
-the Greyjoys
-Lady Stonehart... And Beric Dondarrion before her.
-Davos' travels to White Harbor (although with how abruptly his story is cut off only halfway through A Dance with Dragons they wouldn't have much to show. WHERE IS RICKON??)
-Sansa's actual storyline

Among many others! George RR Martin is involved in the story... Is the story taking a completely different route because he won't have book 6/ Winds of Winter finished before the show has caught up to the books?? (Although, had they not left so much out, maybe the show would take a longer time to cover the books, giving him time to write more!)

Or do these entire separate plotlines mean nothing and are just there to throw us off and take up space??

:lol:

That may be a good thing... You might get someone epic, like Brandon Sanderson, to finish for you. He has been known to do that before. :P

Well... I'd kind of like to read it how the creator intended it. I... I'm already so disappointed by the HBO version, I pretty much had to view them as two completely different series' based on the same central story. I think it's the same kind of thing that causes my aversion to fan fiction.

I think even if someone else did finish it, in my eyes, it would always be an unfinished tragedy.

Interesting...

Yeah, with Wayward Pines I have to view it as two separate takes on the same story. I have to do the same thing with Star Wars prequels vs originals, and the JJ reboots of Star Trek.

It's everywhere. :P
