And then they say “ah, but this is just a story about dragons and naked people, right?” and you control yourself and say “yes, but not like that!”. Or use this precisely as an argument: “did I tell you that there are dragons?”

5. Dragons are going extinct and it could affect Westeros in the future
As George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series was making its transition to HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the author made a shocking discovery: Dragons were going extinct.
Martin had always imagined dragons as being a central part of his fantasy world, but after he learned that they were on the verge of extinction, he had to rethink this iconic feature in Westeros.
The author was faced with a dilemma: should he change the course of his story to accommodate for this new reality? Or should he ignore it and risk running into more problems down the line?
The answer depends on what kind of story Martin wants to tell and how much time he wants to spend on rewrites in order to keep up with the latest research on dragons.
