Since the next season of “Game of Thrones”  is not happening until 2015, a lot of fans have been claiming that they already know how the saga will end. What does George R.R Martin have to say about this? Read on to learn more about this scoop.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Martin said that no, it’s not ending the way you think it is.

“I don’t necessarily know their future and whether they will live or die [pertaining to the shows major characters]. I’ll make it up as I go along,” said the genius behind “A Song of Ice and Fire,” as published on Blastr.

As we all know, he’s still in the process of writing the two remaining books of the saga, which means that no, how things will end is not yet determined even if you have read all the books from cover to cover.

However, George R.R. Martin is very much aware of this news, and he said that some fans have managed to put the pieces together, which may be the reason why a lot of them are already claiming that they know how it’s going to end. Here’s what he have to say on the matter:

I’ve wrestled with (the issue of fan speculation online), because I do want to surprise my readers. I hate predictable fiction as a reader, I don’t want to write predictable fiction. I want t surprise and delight my reader and take them in directions they didn’t see coming… at least one or two readers had put together the extremely subtle and obscure clies that I’d painted in the books and came to the right solution. So what do I do then? Do I change it? I wrestled with that issue, and I came to the conclusion that changing it would be a disaster, because the clues were there.
