File Name: a song of ice and fire acts of treason fanfic .zip
People will often ask me for fan fiction recommendations, but I always feel underprepared and never know where to start because I read so much of it. So I decided it was about time I made a page like this
I realised while researching that there wasn't any official mention of the colours, so I asked his team : bronze with greenish blue highlights and bright green eyes. Arrax was described as pearlescent white with yellow flame, golden eyes and a golden chest :.
Some of them feature GRRM. GRRM is quoted concerning the filming of the original pilot, his role in it, the decision to reshoot it, and his discussions with Benioff and Weiss regarding Rickon Stark.
Sorry to inconvenience you. I'm a longtime fan of your book series, and I'm working on a character study for school. In at the Edinburgh Book Festival, multiple fans quoted you as saying that Brienne of Tarth is "Sansa with a sword," with regards to certain personality traits.
Is that an accurate quotation? But they managed to have a contingent at the London Waterstones event, and arranged a brief sit down with George afterward. Not only is their event report the most detailed they've seen, they also had some fun moments with George afterwards. I was at the talk, and the whole question was that the interviewer asked him which dragon he would ride and which sword he would want to wield.
He actually paused for quite a while before answering the question probably the longest of any of the questions he was asked. For the dragon answer, his tone was kinda jokey and he went with Balerion the Black Dread, saying if he could ride a dragon he'd go with the biggest one who remembered Valyria. For the sword question, he definitely used a more serious tone, and at the "who knows what magical properties a falling star has" point, it definitely sounded like he was dropping a hint.
I just saw George speak at an event in London, and at the very end the interviewer asked him what sword he would have, if he could have any. His response was that he would have dawn, because it was made from a falling star and "who knows what magical properties a falling star has. I attended GRRM's talk in London last night and tweeted about some of the things he said, which, as is Twitter's wont, some people misinterpreted or misunderstood, so I thought it might be useful to clarify and expand on these points here.
Given the UK's much smaller market than the US, that's a huge sales achievement. Most of the interview with historian Dan Jones was standard stuff we've heard many times before: George's early career in short stories, working in television bearing in mind we were in a church, it was surprising that George got so wound up by reminiscing over producers messing with his scripts that he dropped a couple of f-bombs , writing Avalon and getting the inspiration for Bran's first chapter etc.
George did expand on the writing of "The Hedge Knight". Robert Silverberg got a ton of money to do Legends, an all-star anthology of the biggest names in fantasy. Initially GRRM thought that he wasn't established enough in epic fantasy to contribute as only AGoT had come out and he was deep in the writing of ACoK but the money on offer was large and it was pointed out he'd get a good cross-pollination from other authors' fanbases reading his story and deciding to check out AGoT.
George realised he couldn't write anything set during the series so did a prequel. When it was nearly done, George got a message from Silverberg telling him he'd heard that ACoK was going to be late and Legends couldn't be late for the marketing push it had been allocated, so Silverberg was going to drop George's story and had already commissioned a replacement.
George ended up delivering his story on deadline, before several of the other authors had delivered theirs. That's why Legends has 11 stories rather than a more logical From previous interviews we know that the next two - "The She-Wolves" and "The Village Hero" both working titles - are planned in some depth and "The She-Wolves" is partially or even mostly written, but GRRM wasn't sure what order to publish them in.
Both are on hold until TWoW is done. The first GoT spin-off is still officially unnamed: Bloodmoon sounds like a codename or - my supposition - the name of the pilot episode and George still wants The Long Night or, from another interview, The Longest Night.
The pilot has finished filming and HBO will mull it over before pulling the trigger or not on a season order in a few months. GRRM also repeated that the inspiration for the Red Wedding was the Black Dinner of Scottish history, in particular the more "colourful" account that the doomed clan leaders were serenaded with a death march song and had a black boar's head the symbol of death served to them at dinner before their execution, which most historians now seem to believe was a total fabrication "But it sounded better".
Also a reiteration that Fire and Blood wasn't supposed to exist, it was supposed to be his contribution to The World of Ice and Fire in the form of sidebars that he wrote shortly after finishing ADWD, but instead of 3, words he ended up submitting over , words in earlier interviews he said closer to ,, but I wonder if the , is specifically the information on the Targaryens and the , includes all the info he contributed on the Empire of the Dawn, Iron Island history, etc, i. His publishers were horrified, as it made WoIaF too big to be publishable.
Elio and Linda compressed almost all of it down and summarised it to fit into the book, leaving George with this big manuscript which he then chopped up to produce the three anthology stories "The Princess and the Queen", "The Rogue Prince" and "Sons of the Dragon". The motivation to publish Fire and Blood came when HBO started talking about prequel spin-offs and George realised the manuscript could be a potential source of new stories and information, although ironically the one HBO decided to proceed with had nothing to do with the Fire and Blood material.
George did talk about his schedule in terms of the order of things he wants to publish things in. No dates were mentioned and the order sounded aspirational rather than set in stone:. All you can do is write the best book you can and hope that the audience finds and likes it.
George started writing a science fiction novel called Avalon which was going well, but a chapter suddenly came to him so vividly. The chapter was Bran finding the Direwolves. By the time he had finished the chapter he knew what the next would be. Third was the summer of He knew he wanted them found in the summer snows. There are two types of writers: architects and gardeners.
The architect knows the plans before even a word is set down. A gardener knows broadly what he has planted but anything might come up in the garden.
GRRMLive how much of the history did you have to map in order to fill out the world? GRRM knew nothing when he started out. Initially he had a map of Ireland and turned it upside down. He then thought he needed to fill in some of the past and background characters who then achieved more reality in his head. The world then grew from there. What does your physical workspace look like?
He had several maps from ALandofIceandFire. He does have files with timelines on. In many ways he followed the template of Tolkien. Starting in the Shire, broadening out at then splitting.
Just like the Starks initially etc. Every time a character goes off they meet new supporting characters. Plus fans always help with consistency! Like the sex of a horse changing. Difficult to find that on search and replace though. GRRM says he remembers the painful ones. Like the Red Wedding. He skipped over it and wrote the scenes that followed because it was too painful to write. He left it until last to write it. At what point did you decide to write outside of ASoIaF?
For example the AKnightoftheSevenKingdoms? Which is a story of a tournament and like many other things it grew. There are a few things to do first! In the 80s shared world was a thing. We came up with Wild Cards, me and a group of friends. There are 27 in print right now and two more originals on the way. We have some some amazing writers involved and we just published the first British set Wild Cards called KnavesOverQueens.
Is the collaboration with writers the same with TV and sharing the world of Westeros? He loved the idea of Hollywood and working with many people. The social aspect is great. But the other side is all these people telling you what to do or giving feedback. There are two sides to everything. I like the freedom of modelling my books on history but in Fantasy I can make it turn out differently. I model things on history and turn it up to The history I love is popular history, not academic history.
Which female characters did you draw inspiration from? Also there were some amazing women in Italian history during the Renaissance. Why put FireandBlood together now? My publishers said they wanted to do a history. I wanted to put some incredible illustrations in it.
GRRMLive we have two other pilots in active development. We may yet get more Westeros shows in the future. He is the fool in the court leading up to the dance with dragons in FireandBlood.
GRRMLive as FireandBlood is a fake history I loved the idea of telling it as a historian uncovering a history via first-hand accounts that are often contradictory.
In FireandBlood we have many dragons and many swords. If you could ride one and wield one which would it be? I would ride Balerion The Black Dread. If I could wield one sword it would be The Dawn, made from the metal from a fallen star.
Martin being interviewed by Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson. George R. When George was here during the promotion tour for A Dance with Dragons I got to ask him a question as well. I wanted to know something about Ser Barristan the Bold.
