    All right, so what don't you like about ASoIaF?

    My major problems:
    1) Why is Ned dead?
    2) Why is Cersei still alive?
    3) WHY ISN'T ADWD OUT YET?!

    :p

    Need I say again, blasphemy! Everything happens for a reason.

    The only thing I don't like about ASoIaF is that there isn't enough of it.

    That doesn't justify Ned being dead, Cersei being alive, and that ADWD isn't out yet!

    Oh yes it does (ok, minus the ADWD part - I'm with you there)! I don't remember what I was talking about but I know I've said this before. If Ned were alive things would be different. If Cersei were dead things would be different. Maybe Jaime would still have his hand and be a jerk. Maybe Tywin would still be alive to...you know. Do evil things.

    It will all come together. :)

    I'm with K'shar on that one except for Ned as king. I realize that it all contributes to the plot, etc. But it doesn't mean I have to like it!

    The fact that every other guy is a bastard.

    I mean wtf.....surely they cannot be THAT many bastards. Also...wtf is with the incest and the sister torture (via nipple twisting and flicking)? Does GRRM have a thing about debasing sisters?

    K'shar: What if their ass is like....you know...like Skyanide's? :p XD (lol I still remember the pic Nienor posted of him)

    well then I won't look at such scary ass or I'll just pretend it's something better. Still better than looking at man ass.
    and I'd have to say that in an average day most people I meet make me think that GRRM is closer to the truth about the douchosity of people then we'd like to accept

    Yes, in a way it is true, that his characters are probably some of the most realistic. Yet it's fantasy, so you can kinda make it less crude.
