- Reaction score
What about the princess and the queen? I have to imagine it draws from that.There's a lot (by necessity) of creative liberties that will be taken to fully flesh out the story. the source material is essentially an Encyclopedic overview of the war (and preceding/proceeding events) told from a few different maesters.
Big events and end results are written in stone, but there's a lot of wiggle room in between.
I have a feeling (correct if this has already been addressed somewhere) it's going to end on or around where Part I ends, which fully covers the Dance and subsequent rulers. Part II is expected (unless, of course, GRRM fucks with us all over again) to cover all future Targs up to Mad King Aerys. For Hot D and the Thrones-verse at large, I really hope they don't go that route.
That would REALLY take the wind out of Drunk & Egg's sails, which I know HBO wants to (and should) turn into a series of some sort.
otherwise yeah, that’s kind of what I thought.
I’ll read books/stories that spoil the show, but if they are mostly drawing from encyclopedia entries then I’d rather watch the show first than just read “historical accounts”
