#a song of ice and fire

If you’re a Game of Thrones / ASOIAF fan, you may have already heard of the R+L=J fan theory. But, I promise you have never seen it presented in such exhaustive detail. I, for one, have always believed this theory to be true.

Warning: If this theory is true then it could be considered a plot spoiler for a future book or TV season.

Having come to this conclusion myself, I’m guessing this is almost certainly true.

And yes, this is sort of spoiler-y, though not really cause no one save George R. R. Martin knows for sure (well and maybe the show’s writers).

It’s not the Iron Throne I see when I’m working on ‘The Winds of Winter.’ It’s not the Iron Throne I want my readers to see. The way the throne is described in the books … HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court … my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and assymetric … The HBO throne is none of those things.
George R. R. Martin, on one key difference between his books and the show.
