Over the past two months, George R.R. Martin estimates that he’s done “maybe as many as a hundred” interviews, leaving very little time for writing his Beauty and the Beast reboot. Oh yeah, and something about dragons. A Song of Earth, Wind, and Fire I think it’s called? Anyway, Martin’s a busy man, so if you’re going to interview to him, don’t ask him the same damn questions that he’s already answered a million times before, especially one PARTICULAR damn question.
Sitting around a hotel room talking doesn’t sound so hard, but it can be grueling. Especially when they all ask the same damn questions.
(Tyrion is my favorite character. Okay? OKAY? Can we PLEASE put that one to rest?? I love all my viewpoint characters, Arya and Sansa and Bran, Jon Snow and Brienne, Arianne and Cersei and Jaime, Theon, even Victarion and the Damphair, ALL of them, but I love Tyrion the bestest. Tyrion son of Tywin, the Imp, second son of Casterly Rock. How many bloody times do I need to say it?? I swear, from now on, whenever anybody asks me, “who is you favorite character,” I am going to start naming characters from other people’s books. Cugel the Clever. Flashman. Gatsby. Hotspur. Solomon Kane. A different one each time…)
But I digress. (Via)
Here are a few questions Martin would love to answer:
-Yo George, where my dragons at?
-In book three, when the Hound plays Polliver’s skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib twice in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.
-Where did you get your hat? Followup, may I have your hat?
He’s been waiting years for the hat one.
