PwwP and Azor Ahai reborn may not be the same person, remember. Melisandre thinks they are, but she has been wrong about many things. If they are not the same, I think Jon = AAR and Dany = PwwP. Aemon brought up the possibility of it actually being a Princess who was Promised.

It feels weird to have this geeky subject and subsequent theory that I've analyzed for around a decade come from the mouth of this pink haired siren. The television show has inspired people to read the series. I am happy.

George RR Martin at Comic Con:

Would Martin ever consider doing a prequel series chronicling the fall of the house of Targaryen?

He’s says he’s working on “Dreams of Spring” (book 7), and that while they showrunners are laying down the tracks, they’re not on top of him yet. He would consider a prequel, but the last two books will reveal all the twists and betrayals, so it would be a retread to go through Robert’s rebellion. Aegon and his sisters, and the Mad King could be material for prequels if he pursues them, but he won’t do the immediate precursors (no offense to Sean Bean, “who dies so well,” says Martin).

The problem with AA, PwwP is that there's no way Martin goes for that trope straight. He'll end up something completely different that expected -- or only live 30 seconds after being "unveiled".

Book it.

I've never written a novel (let alone a series), so maybe some of our resident writers here can shed some light on the subject. Why in the hell is he working on Dreams of Spring when he hasn't even finished the Winds of Winter GET CRACKIN GRRM!!! I want to reeeeeaaaaaaaaaaad!

not a writer but often times they do that because the ideas start overflowing and they work on different works at the same time due to the ideas being fresh and wanting to make sure they don't lose them.
i've had friends who dabbled in writing, writer's block is a b****!

I think the point is, he's finished Winds of Winter. All that's left is the editing process. At least that's how I read it.

I haven't read the book, but from all accounts, the queen knows about it. So i'm sure Tywin knows about it. He also knows about the king sending the kings guard to kill Tyrion.


Quote:
See number one. It doesn't mean he loves or wants his son to succeed him.
I never said Tywin wants Tyrion to succeed. Just because Tywin doesn't love or want Tyrion to succeed, he still has no choice but to choose Tyrion as his successor with the uncertainty of Jaime.


Quote:
All of that is him controlling what he can. I think Tywin knows Tyrion isn't stupid and has his uses. But that doesn't remove the contempt he feels every time he looks at him. Tywin is the ultimate pragmatist. His goal is preserve the family name. Making his imp son the heir, assuming we knew nothing else about Tyrion, would hurt that name in some measure. Knowing what we do about his whoring and overall disdain for royalty (despite enjoying royal benefits) don't help. Factor in Tywin's personal feelings and there's no way.
whats worse, hurting the family name or having destroyed by choosing the wrong successor? He knows the queen isn't smart enough, joef is an idiot, jaime is probably dead. At this point Tywin has no choice. I think that is why he is gauging Tyrion.

For anyone interested, Amazon has the first 4 volumes of books on sale for $13.51. Good deal considering its normally about $40 for the set. I just bought one. Shipping is a couple dollars extra, but no tax.

I wasn't terribly into the first but loved two and three.

Kind of a dumb question, the only version I could find was a graphic novel. Is there an actual story form of them? Even so I still enjoyed the first one.

Yeah, from compendiums. Though some enterprising fellows have managed to convert them to pdf and mobi versions here and there

Yeah, just about the same as you, I think. They certainly have a different feel than the novels, but they give an interesting viewpoint to the whole series.
