    Regarding the Lady Stoneheart (GoT) thing:
    I a) don´t believe it and b) would be really, really angry if they don´t bring her in at some point… And that comes from a viewer of the show (seasons 1-3) first, before reading the books for the first time just last year… Oh would I be angry, oh would I be angry… on the other hand – I was as angry about the missing Tysha mentioning by Jamie -didn´t stop them either 😉

    Lady Stoneheart has only appeared twice in the series. The epilogue of SoS and that last Brienne chapter of AFFC.

    Also about George, I don’t think people should say things to him but I think its a valid concern. People have devoted a lot of time his series. As George has said there are fans who have spent more time on the books than he has. So I think really not wanting george to die, or for the fans to die themselves before the series is done is a valid concern. Now there’s nothing to be done about it so people shouldn’t say anything to george, but I can see why they’re worried.

    Gatehouse Ami’s beau at Darry is Ser Harwyn ‘Hardstone’ Plumm. Another great minor character we’ve only heard about but I can’t wait to meet!

    Didn’t Strongboar want to storm her gates as well?

  8. Lord Littlefinger

    Strongboar, Hardstone. I feel like its sooo fucking easy to get a bad ass nick name in Westeros. And then most of the bad asses turn out not to be bad asses.

    If you complete ACOK before WOW comes out, I lost my bet and have to buy dinner for a friend who has more faith in you ability to get your shit together than I have.
