    GRRM update on ADwD *possible spoiler talk*

    GRRM just updated his site with more info about ADwD! He gives us a little more insight into what characters we'll see and how the book is progressing etc.
    Here's the link to take a look for youself! A Dance with Dragons Update

    You beat me to it, Ilaelin. :D

    I bet that the returning PoV is Theon Greyjoy. But I'm glad that Arya and Asha are returning, because they're my fav female characters (and the Sands, of course :D).

    But thank the Seven that Bran and Tyrion are back! Whoo!

    GRRM noted that ADWD might extend a little past Feast. How many other people think that Dany's going to launch her invasion? :D

    Let the speculation begin! (And I'll post in here again later)

    I hate reading these because I know it's going to be so long before I can actually read what he's writing!

    I wonder where he's bringing Arya back in.

    Lol, I have to say that I agree, Appaliq.

    He said towards the end of the book... she'll probably be a Faceless Woman by then. Maybe Dany will hire her?

    It would be neat, but at the same time I'm not sure I want my two favorite characters together. I'd like to see Arya sent across the narrow sea back to Kings Landing and get put to work.

    I'd like to see Arya break away from the faceless after some more training and growing. Go back to Westeros and just kill everyone that pisses her off. I think she needs to lose her mind a little bit.

    That'd include killing Sansa, and Sansa's turned out to be OK. Just a little.

    Besides, that'd mean she'd kill the Hound too, doesn't it? And that's a big no-no. :nono: But she can kill Cersei for all I care.

    Does anyone remember who's left on her list? I'm sure it's in AFFC somewhere. That may be a topic during the reread.

    i said pisses her off. not has pissed her off in the past. besides she wanted to see Sansa so bad that she wasn't angry at her any more and if she did kill Sansa no big deal. wouldn't bother me. She'd prolly let the hound goo cuz she'd think he was dead and she had the chance to whack him and left him. I think she could use a little craziness and go apeshit everywhere.

    Nooooo, not Sansa, she's turned out to be OK just a little... and besides, if she went crazy and started killing everyone, someone might kill her, and that's a HUGE nono.

    Lol, true... as long as she doesn't kill Bran, Jaime, Dany, Jon, or Tyrion, I'll be content. :p

    Alright we are all feeling a bit overdue for ADwD so I think GRRM took pitty on us. So, if anyone wants to take a look here's a link to his site and a sample. I'm still debating on reading it myself since it is one of my favorites.

    So, good luck to all that choose to venture forth...Expcerpt from ADwD

    I'm about to read it.

    And I'm almost in tears here, lol. I checked GRRM's site EVERY DAY so I could get all updates the day it came out, except for yesterday because I fell asleep early.

    Dammit.

    Just finished the excerpt. Nothing all that surprising, I predicted all of it except the fact that Varys isn't with Tyrion.
