It was the Witching Hour and he was not sleeping with Daenarys. "Ghost," he said to his wolf, while petting it, "I love you." He continued petting his wolf.


Wait does this mean I got it right?

It's easily possible that GRRM just became paralyzed once the show came out, unable to focus on his books while the other version of the story was running concurrently and was being received episode-by-episode by fans.

Now that it's all over he may - may - find it easier to go on with whatever he planned (which may or may not change based on the show's ending and fan reception to that).

But that's not a deliberate conspiracy. That's just anxiety-induced writers' block.

I mean, all of these assumptions are based on the very shaky premise that he won't die of a massive coronary tomorrow.

He did also get to cash out before writing the actual book, so if he dies now that's everyone else's problem.

Maybe, but that doesn't explain the gap between books 3 and 4, and only partially explains the one between 4 and 5.

Well, I was thinking more that this was an existing problem which was hugely exacerbated, rather than an entirely new one.

<Rylinks> I got one
<Rylinks> "Is Chernobyl anti communist propaganda? Well, they went to the trouble of finding out about what the cigarettes should look like but they have a characters used the term Holodomor. In 1986. The word wasn't invented until 1988. So, It's fucking anti-communist propaganda."
<Rooser> Tankies gon' tank
<fmm> tanking is when your country intentionally scores poorly on the human rights index to get a better draft seed

(for those who've never heard the term, "Tankies" is a derisive term for those *ahem* ardent western Communists who whitewash or otherwise seek to justify violence and repression committed by the USSR, because Solidarity, Comrade! Communism always right no matter what!)

This is one is REALLY showing my and Starr's ages, but w/ever

<Pterrus> it's incoherent and that it's his own administration that is pushing for the moon by 2024, complete with this big publicity campaign about putting the first woman on the moon.
<Pterrus> But they don't talk about it.
<fmm> I didn't realize a woman hadn't been on the moon. Huh
<Pterrus> Guess the publicity campaign isn't working.
