My dime-store scientific opinion

I THINK I read somewhere that Martin said that the reasoning behind the haywire seasons was "magic". I'll see if I can locate where I read that.

Here's one quote I found from him on the subject..
quote:

I have gotten a number of fan letters over the years from readers who are trying to figure out the reason for why the seasons are the way they are. They develop lengthy theories: perhaps it’s a multiple-star system, and what the axial tilt is, but I have to say, “Nice try, guys, but you’re thinking in the wrong direction.” This is a fantasy series. I am going to explain it all eventually, but it’s going to be a fantasy explanation. It’s not going to be a science-fiction explanation.

Well, considering Coldhands wasn't in season 3...

I think we should get an Uncat chapter. Even though I thought Catelyn was a bitch in her chapters, I wanna know what's on her mind besides hanging Freys.

Pretty simple, he doesn't think Benjen is Coldhands. Perhaps a bit of an overreaction on his part, but rather modest compared to what a Frey would do.

Crackpot theory...

Jaime Lannister time travels to the present day and makes out with Kate Upton.

The OT will explode.

Seeing this was such a huge buzz kill.

Stannis was moving albeit slowly on winterfell. The northerns want blood come on Martin don't give darioo.

re: Crackpot ASOIAF Theories SPOILERS


Just finished a re-read of DoD and have have read either the text, a transcript or summary of (I think) all of the sample WoW chapters. So, I'm interested in a little speculation of the immediate next happenings.

Particularly, I'm curious about the outcome of the two battles and Jon's fate.

For the Mereen battle' signs seem to point to victory against the Yunkai. Barristan's attack is going well, the Iron Born are attacking the Yunkish ships and engaging on land. Tyrion and Brown Ben and company are thinking of swinging over. Danny is out there in the grass sea with her dragon and maybe a few Dothraki if she can cow them or win them over.

Of course anything can happen with Martin but that one seems to be going well.

With the Stannis/Bolton battle it's a lot more muddled. I know there is a lot of speculation that the letter from Ramsay was a fake or even not from him. But I don't know. At least Stannis got word about the Karstarks in time to apparently short circuit that danger. But both sides seem to be in a pretty shaky situation. Is Manderly going to flip (whether or not he gets word back from Davos?) Can Stannis' men hold off the Bolton men if they attack?

Jon - well this post is long enough. Will visit those questions later in the thread.

These have proven unreliable in the past. Between an amateur transcriber who's likely been drinking and Martin making significant changes, (a reference to "the sword" was removed from the chapter where Tyrion met Duck and Half-maester), you can't put too much stock in summaries from convention readings.

But I always read them anyway.
