Huge Game Of Thrones Spoiler???

george rr martin confirm fans guess ending song of ice and fire

Looks like there might be at least a couple of Game of Thrones' fans who will get to scream "called it" at the top of their lungs after finishing A Song of Ice and Fire.

Predicting who will come out on top in Westeros' game of thrones, you'd need prophetic skills on the level of Melisandre! But according to Game of Thrones' author George R.R. Martin, a few people have actually correctly guessed the ending!

While speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, George opened up about fans posting about their own theories:

"I've wrestled with this issue, because I do want to surprise my readers. I hate predictable fiction as a reader, I don't want to write predictable fiction. I want to surprise and delight my reader and take them in directions they didn't see coming. But I can't change the plans. That's one of the reasons I used to read the early fan boards back in the 90s but stopped. One, I didn't have the time, but two is this very issue. So many readers were reading the books with so much attention that they were throwing up some theories and while some of those theories were amusing bullsh*t and creative, some of the theories are right. At least one or two readers had put together the extremely subtle and obscure clues that I'd planted in the books and came to the right solution. So what do I do then? Do I change it! I wrestled with that issue and I came to the conclusion that changing it would be a disaster, because the clues were there. You can't do that, so I'm just going to go ahead. Some of my readers who don't read the boards, which thankfully there are hundreds of thousands of them, will still be surprised and other readers will say: 'see, I said that four years ago, I'm smarter than you guys'."

Well, we're glad that he's not going to let the fact that people have metaphorically looked into the fire and divined the ending make him alter his own writing!

Just like Baratheon's seed, the writing is strong!

We trust this master of story to have cooked up an AH-Mazing finale! Guess we'll have to wait a couple books down the line to figure out when ending that is.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I've been SO TERRIFIED that he would change it from what he originally planned because people had possibly figured it out. HE CANNOT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM US. We've been through too much already!

    Don't get HBO but sounds like a nice series.
