“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

I'm just glad they're not even pretending it'll follow the same plot as the books anymore. If it ends up being bad, at least it would be bad original content.

Have you read the books, though? GRRM is a terrible writer. The more they deviate, the better

Deviation is fine as long as we don't get a repeat of "You want a good girl but you need a bad [kitty]". Or at least, if there is one they could maybe make it funny on purpose.

Tyrene did that thing to Stanos because of the Davos crap, and holy shit I did not see that coming. Like, what a season premiere man, I read the books and didn't even see that this could happen.

 

[hide]I really hope at least one of those is dead, but they are the only names I know, solely because of my tumblr feed.[/hide]

Do you mean his prose is terrible, or his storytelling (including characterization) is terrible?

 

I agree if it's the former, but I find most modern prose terrible so that's moot. If it's the latter, then I have to disagree very much.

Calling GRRM a terrible writer is some pretty big hyperbole I think. He's no DFW or Pynchon or whoever but that doesn't make him awful. His prose isn't any worse than your typical fantasy author and his storytelling more than makes up for it to most people.

If GRRM was more consistent in his prose he'd be fine, maybe even above average for the genera.  The problem is that he'll pick up something stylistic out of nowhere and then drop it 100 pages later.  Turns of phrase that haven't once shown up anywhere before will get said by entirely unrelated characters in different parts of the world in consecutive chapters.  And then will never appear again.

 

 

That said, he is very adept world builder and knows how to build a good story.

 

 

Related: I'm way behind on the show. Like I'm-on-season-2 behind.  But I've read all the books. Basically just please don't spoil this most recent season/episode for me.  Kinda hoping to read the next book before I watch. If it ever comes out.

 

 

Edit: Oh [bleep], also I'm moving out on like Saturday into a pretty awesome house with two of my friends.  That is as long as the landlord doesn't find out my housemate just got suspended from work because he's an idiot.

Gratz on the house!

 

I feel like the turn of phrase thing plays out better in a the medium of television because there's a shorter pause and allows for a strong juxtaposition that ties the theme together.

 

I'll have to get the books at some point to read them for myself

Game of Thrones is too mainstream. Now, A Job of Chairs, that shit's a masterpiece.

The show you can't stand to sit through.

Yeah but what about the thing that sometimes can change the perspective of them when they are where and when.

I got another tattoo yesterday. It's the Dark Mark from Harry Potter. My other tattoo is "I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good." on my inner right bicep. This one is taking up almost my entire inner left forearm (so it stays true to the placement on the Death Eaters.)
