He doesn’t indiscriminately kill random characters.
He intentionally and deliberately kills characters for whom it makes sense to die.
An unusual amount of characters die in his books because most writers won’t commit to realism enough to do the same.
an this is why i love game of thrones <3
They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But the night my parents were murdered I caught a glimpse of something. I’ve looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the shadows. And there is something out there in the darkness, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge. Me.
Love this :p
