I had a man once. A good man. Bruni, his name was. I was his and he was mine. But one night Bruni disappears. People said he left me, but I knew him. He’d never leave me. Not for long. I knew he’d come back. And he did. He came in through the back of the hut. Only it wasn’t Bruni. Not really.

PS. Please don’t worry if it takes me a while to get to your number. I’m already thinking on it! Just RL, is all. x)

Princess Elia was a good woman. She was kind and clever, with a gentle heart and a sweet wit.

"The common people pray for rain, healthy children, and a summer that never ends. It is no matter to them if the high lords play their game of thrones, so long as they are left in peace. They never are."

He had a little pointed chin beard now, and threads of silver in his dark hair, though he was still shy of thirty. They went well with the silver mockingbird that fastened his cloak. Even as a child, he had always loved his silver.

What is your predicted ending for Asoiaf if you dont mind explaining in brief?
I have difficulty with “brief” but basically
The Wall will fall at the end of TWOW, while the Red Keep will accidentally go up in a giant ball of wildfire as the various sides (Dany, (f)Aegon, Cersei, etc) try to control King’s Landing. (Nice ice/fire parallels, nice juxtaposition between the zombie war and the political war.) Humanity will be pushed back, all the way to the Trident. There’s probably very little food because the Greyjoys will have burned the Reach and the Westerlands, along with Oldtown and a lot of important documents on dragons and dragonglass and stuff that they keep there (Samwell Tarly’s mind is going to be very important).
I think ASOIAF has four messiahs: Bran (acting as the Battle Commander) and Dany, Jon & Tyrion as the Three Heads of the Dragon, with Stannis acting as a commander of the majority of the forces on the ground.
Because Bran has the ability to transcend time and space (and he’s had that ability since book 1), he will occupy the metaphorical “high ground” of the battle against the ice zombies and he will be able to direct the battle from his command center in the cave. The cave will be under siege, and that unguarded back door to the cave is a thing everyone should be very worried about right now.
The Three Heads will have to fly to the Curtain of Light in the Land of Always Winter, basically leaving Stannis alone, without backup, letting him feel abandoned like he did during the Siege of Storm’s End. (Paging somedeadman.) Stannis will fight “to the bitter end”, dying in the process.
All the three heads of the dragon are going to die. Dany, before she flies out, is going to swear to someone — Missandei, Jorah, the refugees from King’s Landing, idk — Dany is going to promise someone that she’s going to come back and take care of them all/make this right (basically a parallel to Rhaegar saying goodbye to Jaime at the end of the Rebellion), and once she gets up there, it’s going to be a Bruce-Willis-in-Armageddon situation, where she will be required to sacrifice herself for her people, out of her love for humanity — a betrayal for love.
The Iron Throne is destroyed, underscoring GRRM’s point that war for a stupid metal chair is pointless. There is no more central government, the Seven Kingdoms break up into seven different kingdoms again, humanity has to rebuild civilization from the ruins. The epilogue is a Bran POV, with Bran guarding humanity against the newly imprisoned Great Other and looking into the future and seeing Winterfell rebuilt and stuff.
