    If I was writing the ending (and of course I didn't) I would have written it with the Kingdoms breaking up and the families having loose ties. That would have made more sense to me. But that's just one possible way to do it.

    Thinking about it more......writing it that way could have set in motion a great sequel. A couple of hundred years in the future, a big threat from outside of Westeros and someone tries to re-unite the Kindgoms.

    Oh, if we're talking about his shorter work, you have a point. With a short story, the ending is everything; there's no room for a bad one. King's short stories generally have great endings. So does GRRM, to get back on topic.

    Yeah, I didn't say it, but I was thinking of his novels. King's novellas and short stories are generally much more story-driven.

    So this was the three-eyed raven's plan all along?
