    SailorNemesis,YOU DIDN'T TOUCH any "nerve",I JUST GAVE MY OPINION!And I WASN'T SCREAMING AT ALL,I used the caps TO EMPHASIZE SOME OF THE THINGS I SAID!If G.R.R.Martin might have given some plot outline,that DOESN'T MEAN AT ALL that this plot outline covers ALL THE STORY since THE WHOLE STORY HASN'T BEEN WRITTEN YET,so he could have given some explanations regarding where the story should go ONLY TO WHERE THE STORY WAS WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS,NOT UNTIL THE END!Or simply the show runners COULD HAVE DECIDED FOR THEIR OWN ENDING,different from the one that the books will have!Therefore,HE DOESN'T HAVE TO CHANGE the fact that Daenerys will go mad and burn Kings Landing at the end of the story because SUCH ENDING ALMOST SURELY DOESN'T EXIST!And this happening WASN'T AT ALL "well-foreshadowed" but,on the contrary,DEFINITELY UNPREDICTIVE that's why it was "surprising when it dropped"!And "it was effective storytelling"for the show,NOT FOR THE BOOKS that were still to come!Also,G.R.R.Martin WILL SURELY FINISH THE FINAL BOOK FASTER THEN 10 YEARS!Then,I DON'T WANT TO WRITE ANY "all happy ending" and I REALLY DON'T KNOW what made you think something like that,I SIMPLY SAID that THE BOOKS COULD HAVE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT ENDING from the ending of the show!

    When Tyrion said to Daenerys that "there are not many who are melted to the ground so you may need a shovel to scrape some of them off the stones to witness it",HE WAS NOT SARCASTIC(though he was quite a sarcastic person in general),but instead DERISIVE towards her because of the TERRIBLE ACTS THAT SHE HAD JUST COMMITTED!So,HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY "sardonical sense of humour in this case,but ONLY CONTEMPT for what Daenerys had just done!Indeed,he was challenging her,but DEFINITELY NOT IN THE WAY IN WHICH YOU DESCRIBE THAT,meaning NOT SARDONICALLY,but IN A REMONSTRANT WAY and if the queen would have been still sane of mind,SHE WOULD HAVE NOR SEEN THIS AS AN "INSULT" because IT WAS THE AWFUL TRUTH!
    Also,I HAVE TO STRONGLY DISAGREE with someone else who said in a comment that "at this point there is no reason to believe the books will be substantially different" regarding Daenerys'burning of Kings Landing!That's A BIG NONSENSE!On the contrary,at this point THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT THE BOOKS WILL NOT BE VERY DIFFERENT FROM THE SHOW in their ending!THE SHOW ALREADY DEVIATES SIGNIFICANTLY(not just "in many small ways"!) FROM THE BOOKS in some moments,so A TOTALLY DIFFERENT ENDING FOR THE BOOKS IS VERY PROBABLE!And,even if Daenerys'turn was CERTAINLY SUPPORTED by the way in which the show developped(no matter what far too many fans WRONGLY believe!),I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND why that person could tell you that he/she gives you kudos "for not fan-ficing that(the burning of Kings Landing) away"!THIS IS CLEARLY WRONG!If you would have changed that and you would have written a ending in which Daenerys didn't go mad,IT WAS YOUR RIGHT TO DO THAT and to "fan-ficing"it and YOUR STORY SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN APPRECIATED OR NOT ON THAT BASIS!Some people SHOULD REALLY THINK before writing such NONSENSES!

    Wow, I really touched some nerves with Seragont.  Soo much caps yelling.  GRRM has said many times that he gave the show-runners a plot outline, explaining where the story should go.  I highly doubt he is gonna change Dany showing her inner maniac at the end and burning the city, but I suppose this argument will continue for 10 years until he puts out the final book.  This happening really was well-foreshadowed but still surpirising when it dropped so it was effective storytelling.  If you want to write your own `all happy ending' please do so, just don't expct me to read it.

    Awkward writing at points and you really should avoid anachronisms like `soap-opera stars'

    Surprised that you kept Daeny burning Kings Landing.  Yes, the show deviated from the books in many small ways, but they still followed Martin's outline.  At this point there is no reason to believe the books will be substantially different but you actually kept the Daeny's madness so maybe you wont be too disappointed.

    Not sure how much more I will read but you earned some credibility with your opening.  I also wish the show had ended differently but I fully belive that in hind-sight and with rosey glasses off Daeny's turn was supported and foreshadowed even if I wanted something else for her.  I give you kudos for not fan-ficing that away.
