But what KIND of zombie is he?

Ice zombie?
Grayscale zombie?
Resurrected-by-the-Lord-of-Light zombie?
The-Mountain-meets-Dr.-Necromancer zombie?


#3

The has-not-been-conclusively-proven-dead-therefore-totally-still-alive-trust-me kind (aka Benjen).


#4

Where the fuck is Benjen?!?


#5

Up north putting the finishing touches on his R+L=J powerpoint presentation.

it has to be said: the new book would probably be out much quicker if he would stop doing things like this. WRITE, WRITE LIKE THE WIND, GEORGE


#8

Not necessarily. Sometimes a break and doing something silly can do wonders for one’s creative output. Whether it is a novel or a circuit or some code.


#9

Pretty sure he’s been taking plenty of breaks from writing, based on the time between books.


#10

i have to admit, you’re totally right. i still feel my pithy, snarky comment still has a grain of truth in it, though.


#11

This is so fuzzy problematics that we can be both right at the same time. :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

It’s disconcerting to see a zombie who keeps his glasses as clean and smear free as this one.


#13

It’s the level boss.


#14

The kind that wont let his own mortal passing affect his completion of the last books of ASOFAI?
Unfortunately they will be dictated strictly in groans and Hodors.


#15

Two symbols are enough to have full binary communication.
Even one symbol would be enough if timing is specified (one groan zero, two groans one - just an example).


#16

Well yea…
They could translate it.
But it is so much more poetic in the original tongue.


#17

Then you have to decide if you want poetry or intelligible text.

Poetry. A way to be deliberately obtuse and confusing in way more words than needed to convey the same information in clearer way…
