  • What are the problems with many of the story fixes
    • Game of Thrones was inspired by the past.
    • It was meant to take a Tolkien like story and subversion
    • Execution caused most of the problems, not what happened.
  • Daenerys should be queen and/or
  • Jon Snow should be King
    • No just know
  • John Snow should have killed the Night King
    • Not as such
  • Kings Landing should not have burned
    • Who could be king
    • Gendry
    • Ellaria Sand
    • Sansa Stark (The starks are the White Roses)
  • Bran should not be King and John Snow should have at least hugged Ghost
    • Okay, cannot argue that
  • Lessons for storytellers
    • Beware of breaking tropes
    • People seem to want Disney Fantasy
      • A little messy and scary at the beginning and tied up in a neat bow at the end
    • Monday Morning Quarterbacks will appear either way if your story becomes popular
    • Use character development not shock to change the course of a narrative.
