Poll #1095259 Holiday Cheer!

Do you want a Christmas card from me? Submit your address here! (Only I will see the responses.)



* If I've met you in real life, you must fill out the poll, because I say so and my word is law (and also because I'm sure I've lost a few addresses and I want to send you all cards).

In other things, George R.R. Martin answers your questions.

And believe it or not, the "Emily" on p. 2...is me! Cooooool.

(In the Song of Ice and Fire series, for which character's death did you get the most flack from readers? —Emily

GRRM: The scene that was hardest to write was the wedding scene in Book III. That was the most violent and difficult. And I've gotten a lot of mail from readers, many of them saying it was brilliant, but others saying they couldn't read past that, and they were giving up on my book, it was too painful. But it's supposed to be painful. It was painful to write, it should be painful to read, it should be a scene that rips your heart out, and fills you with terror and grief. That's what I'm striving for.)


ETA: OMG this is so adorable. "How my boyfriend ruined my Neil Gaiman experience."

So I am a Hater

I like the Ice and Fire series, but the one character who won't die is the one I want to die the most...Daenerys... I have resigned myself to the fact that she is untouchable, but I don't have to like it... Kill Robb but that dull ass story line has to continue... I actually skip her chapters when I reread the books.

Re: So I am a Hater

I was VERY upset by the death of Robb; and I agree with you - Daenerys is one of my least favorite characters, but it looks like we'll be getting a lot more of her. *sigh*

All I can say is, if he touches Arya, HE DIES.

Well, ok, maybe not. But I will be v. upset.

Re: So I am a Hater

Well, ok, yeah, but she's not dead. That's more what I meant. :)

Re: So I am a Hater

Any chance that we can hold a kill Daenerys pledge drive? We hit $100,000 dollars and she is killed off in the next book.

Re: So I am a Hater

Hee! I dunno, I have an idea we'd have to give it to GRRM in order to get him to kill her off, and if I had that much money in my hands, I don't know if I could part with it...even to get him to do that!

Re: So I am a Hater

That is why you arrange it so that it isn't in your hands... but it would make the remaining books more enjoyable...
