I keep seeing the whole, Fans are UPSET and want a re-write thing floating around the internet. In fact, the Fans that are UPSET probably kept some people from attending ComicCon last week and that is just sad.
I mean, I get it - the last season had... issues? For me, the main one was how fast it went. I wish it could have been a longer season, more fleshed out and less Wild Ride that Leaves You Thinking WTF! But it was what it was and that is the reality of it.
I was brought into the GOTs family via the first season, which I binge watched over a weekend. Then of course, I got the books. And I LOVED the books. I did also enjoy the show, but the books were the best. So, I signed up for the writers version when I kept watching the show. There were changes of course - did I agree with them? No, not really for the most part, but I saw why the show went in the direction it did - a show can never be as in depth as a book unless it is a really LONG show.
And then Martin left us all hanging by NOT FINISHING THE BOOKS so I could no longer feel superior to the show watchers with pre-information LOLOL
Thing is, I actually liked the ending. I felt it stuck with the way the characters were acting and it felt ok to me. I hated the speed with which it occurred but I was fine with it. Also, my tarot cards predicted the ending and that still gives me chills.
Bottom line: Game of Thrones was not a Choose Your Own Adventure.
We don't get to say DO IT AGAIN because we didn't like it. That isn't the way it works and it kind of seems spoiled, self entitled and Gimme Gimme - I keep seeing Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka in my head... BUT I WANT A BETTER ENDING NOWWWWW.
I am still looking forward to the books - I hope he finishes them someday. But I also have a great imagination and get to make the characters do anything I want, in my head. I see no need to bash people because their vision doesn't match yours.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
