How can one men have so little respect for himself and his legacy?
He knowingly wrote a corny fantasy series, he probably thinks it's hilarious that so many people take it seriously and get mad about it. The fuck is a legacy anyway who cares
>>149239676he knows that if he stops now he could be forgotten like L O S T so he wants to become the fantasy version of Star Trek instead
>>149239699He's fat and old and has no children though. Is he planning to be buried with it?
you're mistaken if you think Martin holds ASOIAF in any particular regard about his other work. You can tell he lost enthusiasm after the third book.He could come out and admit this fully and tell people to not expect a conclusion but it doesn't make sense for him financially or the added hate in his late years
>Give up finishing your biggest claim to fame to make shitty retconning spin-offs and adaptations of beloved sci-fi classics by other authors that literally no one ever asked to be made into television and probably won't work at all.What is this type of move called?
>>149239827Why the fuck did he sign a 5 year contract to make GoT spin-offs, then? If it's for the coins i'll ask the same as >>149239779.
>>149239827pretty much this, he lost interest in asoiaf a while ago, half the reason why the series is taking so long is because he would rather write other things or work on other projects>>149239888 he's probably still interested in the setting, but he no longer cares about the story itself, it's probably more fun for him to write a series of short self contained stories in his pet world, than trying to figure out the asoiaf clusterfuck he wrote himself into
>>149239749>He knowingly wrote a corny fantasy seriesThe number of characters and interwoven plots is very large. It's intricate.
>>149239676it gets worse
The times they are a changin'
>>149240373Is he trying to turn into George Lucas?
>>149239676I wish he’d signed a deal with Nintendo
>>149239751he's already assured that by being a fat fuck that his fans gave up on 15 years ago
>>149240087Something can be corny and still tightly plotted, zoomcel
Hey George, how's your book coming along? I thought of you this afternoon right as I was putting the final touches on my latest eight books. But hey- don't feel bad about taking a long time to finish, since creativity can't be rushed. At least that's what I tell the students I tutor whenever I'm not writing. Keep your chin up bud.
>>149239676>short>fat>big nose>beady little eyes>scraggly beardoof, you just know GRRM got rejected by a lot of girls when he was young
>berserk will never be finished>half life will never be finished>asoiaf will never be finishedwhat is left bros?
>>149240839Attack on Titan was finished at least
>>149240839looking at Attack on Titan it might be better for them to remain unfinished...
>>149240839Berserk is very infuriating. Just have Guts kill Femto already.
>>149240916where is this from
>>149240373Baratheon War in five acts bring it
>>149239676he finished his books a while agohas it stipulated not to be released until he dieshe can't handle what happens if people don't like it and doesn't care to know if they do like itbetter to party hard at the top of your game for as long as you possibly canim not even madhe earned it
>>149241027the final, most pathetic cope
>>149240373that horseshit bs spin though"brought back to life" clearly means telling a part of his earlier history in faggy entertainment terms
>>149241027no he just doesn't give a fuck about continuing the books. He's only hyper autistic about the lore and the million family trees and connections which is why he keeps doing prequels and wasting his time with hbo shit
>>149240839>clone high will be be finished>undergrads will never be finished
>>149241056>>149241094either wayive never read or watched this shitjust know him the wizard and the bruiser episode
>>149241094this is what caused me to abandon epic fantasy, the authors get too bogged down in their lore and forget about everything else
>>149241094I understand that. worldbuilding is fun
>>149240934guts will forgive femto and give him a hug because the japanese love forgiveness because they can't take actually being held responsible for their numerous warcrimes
>>149240403When was this
>>149241107finish them in your own imagination
>>149241164before the times theya changed
All he cares about is money, food and tits which is honestly quite based if you think about it
>>149240087>The number of characters and interwoven plots is very largeYou can say the same thing about high school DxD, doesn't make it not schlock
>>149241228he's married to a gross old feminist, dude probably hasn't got laid since the 70s
>>149241261strange things can happen in the desert
>>149241261Lots of hookers, I mean think about all the tyrion chapters....this guy knows where whores go because he's been there a million times.
>>149239676>George R.R. Martin signs a five-year contract with HBOMost he's written in years.
>>149240019Eating cheetos and watching porn is considered "working on projects" now?
>>149241486ever since the govt started paying me to stay the fuck home
>>149239676>>149239699>>149239749>>149240087>>149240731>>149241233imagine writing something to be a more real LOTR in your eyes, create a world and stick to it and become an author.IMAGINE HE MADE ITwhy are you mad.
>>149241486oof, friendly fire m8
I got to Reddit for salt. I frequent r/projectzomboid every Thursday due to lack of animations, r/asoiaf every time GRRM has more news about a side project or his blogpost, r/titanichg everytime there is drama, and r/Minneapolis during this trial
>>149241539I'm not going pretend to have done more than read the first book and flip through a few of the others that some friends had. Near as I could tell it was just smut and soap opera drama, literally nothing in common with LOTR. Please explain how it has anymore literary value than the works of Ed Greenwood.
>>149239676He’s just a fat and indulgent kind of guy. He doesn’t care about finishing the books or that people didn’t like the show, because he’s already gotten incredibly rich and still has money rolling in. All that matters to him now is that he already has enough to live in extreme comfort and luxury until he dies, and people will even still work with him on side projects if he feels like it.>>149239749I have a theory that he was a fat loner as kid who got bullied, maybe even for his love of fantasy crap. Because of that, he now very much enjoys and thinks it’s funny that his own fantasy series is mainstream and there are normies who seethe about the show or him not finishing the books.
>>149241539Tolkien wasn't out for fame, he did it for the love of the work. If Gurm doesn't finish his work, he will be remembered as nothing more than a hack that distracted himself with pointless shit like a zoomer baby and sold his soul to corp execs.
>>149241107Undergrads was great.There was also that show about the innercity new york kids from the same vintage, also good. Cant remember the name though, I remember there was a mexican sister who had a friend and they were both whores. MTV killed so many good animated series.
>>149240839Kingfaggot Chronicocks won't get finished either because rothfuss made bank and is now living out his simp cuck fantasies. Meanwhile Will Wight releases 4 books a year
>>149242176Gotta give him some credit, dude is just a nerdy slacker fuck who spent 9 years getting an english degree then he writes two popular novels a decade ago and treats it like winning the lottery
>>149243055guy who played hurley
>>149241539>a more real LOTRFucking lol. He just copied the War of the Roses because that fat fuck has no creative spark in his hylic soul.
>>149240898is it better to leave fans to imagine a good end or end poorly?
>>149239676He lost motivation because he doesn't know how to properly end it, and because the expectations are so high. Also, having to catch up with the show takes away some of his freedom of writing.
>>149241940I half think he fully intends to leave the series unfinished, to add mystique around him and his work. It's a suitably pretentious thing to want,
>>149240839Hunter x Hunter
>"Racism will end when we all become mutts, i honestly can't wait for it." -George R.R. Martin
>>149241539FINISH YOUR FUCKING BOOK GEORGE!!!!
>>149240828>What's that George? You want me to come over and give you some help?>Well I can't do it today, I'm starting work on my new book. Should be finished by Friday though. I know that's longer than I usually take but I've been tired lately.>How's next week sound?
>>149239676He's a fat, indulgent hedonist who can finally enjoy his life now that he's flush with cash. In a way, I don't blame him. His legacy wasn't much to begin with and he likely knew HBO would fuck it up.Why his publishing company allows this is what confuses me. I'm surprised they don't just hire a ghost writer and then slap his name on the book just to be done with it. It' would have sold more when the show was still running and popular, they should have done it then.
>>149241261It's okay, he's a gross old feminist too.
>>149239779he has no children because he's gay
>>149241094His "lore" is a joke. Anyone can tell you that with a quick glance at Asoiaf wiki. It's not even half of the depth of Middle Earth. His family trees are undeveloped messes, the rest of the world but a footnote to Westeros, and everything is punctuated with references to works of better authors like Howard and Lovecraft and other shit Gurm likes, mainly references to old sci-fi stuff. Also the prequels he's doing for HBO are already done in book form, he just wants to work them on TV form for God knows what reason.
>>149239676how patheticLEGACY is what you leave behind for your kin. This guy will leave hundreds of millions of dollars for his offspring, setting them and their offspring up for life. His bloodline will be within the 1% of society for generations to come, ruling over the rest of the plebs grumbling about "selling out" and other sour grapes copes.
>>149244892>for his offspringHe has none.
>>149239676Probably gets his dick sucked now by girls dressed as nymphs after a lifetime of wizardry.
>>149240839Rome will never be properly finished.
>>149244892Hes an ugly stupid fat fucking nerd he doesn't have any kids lol. Best he can hope is buy some whore Asian hope his fat old cock can get up and make some hapa creation.
>>149239676He's rich, bitch.
>>149240828Sanderson really is a machine. He has a schedule worked out til, what, 2050 something? And I wouldn't be surprised if he meets it all the way.
>>149240373>i hate every Targ i see, from Aegon A to Rhaegar Z>no you'll never make a king out of me
>>149244772He's an incel and proof that money alone will not get you pussy.
>>149240828I love his youtube videos. I've never read anything by him, nor am I a writer, and yet I love listening to him tell me how to craft a story.
>>149240019He would rather write about new york giants on his blog than asoiaf
>>149239676AHHHHHHHH finish the boooks you fat fuck
>>149240019>he's probably still interested in the setting, but he no longer cares about the story itselfhe's slowly realized that the original ending he wanted to do, that motivated him to start writing, isn't as effective as he thought. his whole interest in the characters was based on the fact that he thought he was going to make a big subversive meta-level point about history/power etc. rather than try to work out something more traditional he's completely given up.
>>149239676Man just give me the damn Dunk & Egg books
>>149247930There are only so many minutes in the day when he can write, he has to squeeze it in between burgers, pizza, lasagna, chicken pot pie etc.
>>149239676He wrote himself into an inescapable corner, and he knows it. If he never finishes the books, he'll have some semblance of a legacy intact because you'll have a faction of people saying "man, if only". If he actually finishes them, nothing he can do will be satisfactory, and it'll end for him same as it did for HBO.For most of his life, he was basically a nobody. Now he's rich, semi famous, somewhat revered, he "made it", and he isn't going to waste his probably very limited time sitting in front of a screen and not enjoying it. That's how it is.
>>149247616>Sanderson really is a machine. He has a schedule worked out til, what, 2050 something? And I wouldn't be surprised if he meets it all the way.His books are terrible. Churning out doorstopper fantasy novels on a schedule is about the easiest writing level. He's one of these writers that is obsessed with "craft" and work ethic to compensate for the fact that he's simply not particularly talented at writing.
>>149248960this. He's not an artist he's a worker. He doesn't write, he's assembling young adult rpg compendiums that are gimmicky and formulaic as fuck.
>>149239827>He could come out and admit this fully and tell people to not expect a conclusion but it doesn't make sense for him financially or the added hate in his late yearsNah. If he didn’t care he could just easily hire ghost writers to finish for him or at least do all the heavy lifting. His books get finished, he gets way less hate, and makes a shitload more money. Even a mediocre finish would be seen as a improvement not over the show. The guy is delusional and legitimately thinks he can finish it on His own.
>>149239676>How can one men have so little respect for himself and his legacy?That's his secret, he knows he's shit so there really is no legacy beyond what his marketing can cook up.
>>149239676GET TO WRITING FAT MAN
>>149245974After they recasted Octavian with that stankface ugly ass motherfucker I don't even care.
>>149243643oh, he will (leave it unfinished)
>>149239676Idiots think he's the American Tolkien, but he's the American $apkow$ki.
>>149239676>blueish Boomer >wrote in the worst genre of genre fiction (beside fantasy) prior to GOT>>149239751This>>149240373Broadway/theater crowd is extremely inbred & niche; the bar is low to flip a profit >>149241940Psychologically plausible>>149244823‘Gardening’ — fast & loose Boomerficationof a Tarantino War of the Roses meets ‘Nam while nesting as much plausibly deniable archetypally justified theory bait as possible is its cachet
>>149245974You know it was cancelled Bc of the disrespect of Jews right not production costsI’m convinced GRRM can’t solve the merenese knot. He can not place Marwyn, Danny and age Arya/bran. He has no way of bringing Danny to Westeros in an acceptable timeframe. The truth is mad Danny could have been the best developed villian next to death Vader. I don’t believe he has many options but to either kill her or have a 9 year old bran the most OP character in Westeros. Either way he threw in the towel
it doesn't matter. either way he will be remembered as the tolkien of our time
>>149252687No he won't.
>>149252687like shiamalon is the new spielberg?
>>149240087no, retardteenage nerds do this all the time with D&D and have been since the fucking 70s or whateverit's not complicated to write 20 different niggas with vague personalities that end up being overridden by prose describing the generic fantasy world and its conflictsyou have the brain of those retards who watched the show for like 8 years and still think dany's name is khaleesi
>>149252687Yeah, sure he will. Or he will be remembered as the fat fuck who dropped his popular book series to sell out for HBO to help destroy the very world he created
>>149239676he knows his series is garbage and not worth finishing so he’s just taking all the money he can get
>>149240019He might have had it done by now if HBO hadn't made the series.
>>149252687lol that’s some massive cope and im happy to inform you will never happen. no one is gonna look back fondly on asoiaf; he will be a joke, as he deserves.
>>149239749^This^ Can't tip a stripper with your legacy. Can't roll up your legacy to snort high grade Columbian off a hookers' tits. Keep your legacy. I'd rather fuck bitches.
>>149241027that’s the saddest most pathetic cope I’ve seen about anything ever
>>149249510>The guy is delusional and legitimately thinks he can finish it on His ownFalse. His History of Westeros books have seen him collaborating and sharing the workload efficiently. He works with other authors regularly. And he's not overly possesive of his work. He's most likely finished already and is just playing the marketing game.
>>149240839Wheel of time
>>149239749This, he's a pulp writer who hit a goldmine and he knows it.
>>149243383and Tolkien copied finnish mythology and bible, keep seething
>>149255614>finnish mythologyThat's why Frodo rhymes with Spurdo
>>149240434At least George finished his series.
it isnt just this about the money i don tthinkafter seeing the shitshow with the HBO series he knows he cant end it in a way that wont cause another massive shitshow. No matter what he does he will always be remembered as a hack.
Does anyone actually believe he's working on any of these, even just to write some cliff notes or do some suggestions? Dude is just selling his name at this point so HBO can give legitemacy to this shit and get fans on board. But there is no chance he's actually working. He cannot fucking work for shit.
>>149239749>>149255552As opposed to all that AWESOME fantasy literalture like Brandson Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss right?
>>149257859I prefer Abercrombie myself but sure, almost anything is better than that fag faggots forever tarnished literary legacy.
>>149240890that was Rebuild of Evangelion levels of failure
>>149239779Yeah, money is weird like that... Having a lot of it makes you want more, even if you don't even have anything to spend it on.
>>149257859i'm tugging my braid ooh you made me so mad
>>149255337WoT had a decent ending but I relly missed Jordan's prose. Sanderson has a relly abrupt style.
>>149242176>Kingfaggot Chronicocks won't get finished eitherYeah, but those books are terrible so it doesn't matter.
The virgin Christopher Tolkein>NOOOOOOOO! YOU CAN'T JUST COMMERCIALIZE MY FATHER'S LECACYRINO! NO SILMARILLION MOVIE EVER!The chad GRRM>5 year contract? Throw in some pizza and salad dressing and you got yourself a deal.
>>149240434Star Wars actually used to be good so he can't
>>149243643This is a very small brained take. This is like finding a 3/4 eaten sandwich in the trash and wondering if the person who ate it planned to leave that much to add mystique to their eating habits. He just doesn’t feel like it and he doesn’t have to.>>149239749This. If you truly love what you create, you can’t stop talking about it. Once you’re over it, you don’t give a fuck anymore (like Harrison Ford and his career). He probably realized it was mediocre and doesn’t want to end up like J.K Rowling having to shill her children’s books until she dies. He’s honestly probably happy the tv show killed the series forever. >>149241940>a fat loner as kid who got bullied, maybe even for his love of fantasy crap. Because of that, he now very much enjoys and thinks it’s funny that his own fantasy series is mainstream and there are normies who seethe about the show or him not finishing the books.This is undeniably based and I’m actually jealous if this is true. This is revenge of the nerds level payback and the fact it also targets trannys only makes it better.
>>149240828i will not forgive this fucker for what he did to WoT
>>149239676he's a grifter and you, like every other dumbass normie, got grifted. you let HBO production values and meme actors convince you it was good writing. now you're just seeing the truth
>>149259067I love that as soon as Christopher Tolkien died the floodgates opened an we get a massive Amazon mini series. I love Tolkien's writing but the 'no fun allowed' rule was too much.
>>149252687He won't be remembered at all, just like his garbage tv show for morons
>>149252687>tolkien of our time
>>149261083oh yeah what lotr needed was absolutely more niggers
>>149261083Anon they had him declared incompetent before he died so they could sell it to Amazon and he couldn't arrange his estate to stop them, this was very recent and you must be a retarded triple nigger not to even be able to remember that far back. Although you're obviously just a nigger-loving CONSOOMER so that was already obvious.
>>149239749do not insult fantasy genre by calling asoiaf "fantasy". it's not a fantasy. it's borderline historical fiction
>>149262063Anon, there are dragons in it. That's fantasy.
>>149239676Nobody remembers jack shit anymore and everything is just a flash in the pan might as well take with both fists. He made the right choice.
>>149247801i used to be like you. then i picked up way of kings and it was complete garbage. like really bad. not only was the story boring, but the writing was on the level of a high schooler. flat characters, stale world-building, no subtext whatsoever it's really suprising how he managed to fool so many people into believing he's a good writer.
>>149249421So he's basically the western version of kamachi.exe? Whilst some of his works are word count longer and on a slighter longer release schedule than the "average" LNs 6 monthly release, his prose and narrative isn't mind blowing?
