Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin says ending in books will be different from series


George R.R. Martin, author of the original Game of Thrones books, has recently shared how his ending will be widely different from the television series — which will feature *drum roll please* unicorns.

The 70-year-old wrote on his blog how fans will get the opportunity to read about more characters that did not make the cut for HBO series.

“How will it all end? The same ending as the show? Different? Well…yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.” he said.

“There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books.”

“So if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet.

“And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort.”

And if the fans are not happy – Martin doesn’t really care.

“I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet,” he added.

This follows Sophie Turner, who plays the Queen of the newly independent North, Sansa Stark, who called the petition to remake the final season “disrespectful.”

The petition reads, which currently has over 1 million signatures.

“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

Turner shared with The New York Times:

“People always have an idea in their heads of how they want a show to finish, and so when it doesn’t go to their liking, they start to speak up about it and rebel.”

“All of these petitions and things like that – I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season.”

“Like, 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.”

The petition recently was updated, the creator, Dylan.

“This will more than likely be my final update to the petition, unless news worth sharing comes to my attention. It is unsurprising that I have still not been contacted by HBO or any representative regarding this whole thing. I’d call it disrespectful if I didn’t mind being labelled as entitled, so I will instead use the word that encapsulates our feelings towards this entire ordeal: disappointing.”

He continued on, saying:

“I want to thank all of you supporters once more. As it is, this petition stands among the most-signed ever in this site’s history! It really did bring a large, ardent community together in a way that I’ve never seen before and I’m glad that I was able to adequately represent most of you during this whole endeavor, even despite some media misrepresentation, Hollywood discontent, and general online hate. Your support largely outweighed the backlash. I will keep in touch with the people in case someone tries to contact me, but in the meantime I will return to being a normal nerd.”
