“Stannis and Renly were actually quite alike. They both liked to ram the Mud Gate.”
i have never wanted to spoil people so bad in my life.
I do not like this attitude. I discovered A Song of Ice and Fire through Game of Thrones. Now, I am full invested emotionally in the plot and portrayal of this story and these characters via the television show. Reading the books now, for fans of the show, would be like reading text spoilers of a TV show we loved before they aired. I did not skip out on the books out of laziness, and you are no better than me for reading them.
Attention those of you who read the books. Congratulations. Here is my applause. I honestly envy you for having a knowledge of this incredible story and these beautiful characters before I did. But shut up about us “TV fans” not having read the books. This is how we have chosen to experience ASOIAF, deal with it.Source: confidencekraken
