I gave up any real hope of him completing the series when I saw him in person and saw how old he looks. He's not terribly up there in years, but he moves like he'll shortly belong in the home.

If I had to put a dollar on it, I'd put it against him finishing. I've decided to be happy with what I have and rely on a friend's made-up ending: The Wall falls, the Others win, and the epilogue is a completely frozen world. That is, until the moon cracks open above to release its dragons to heat the world again.* I'm prepared for a real downer on this one, so I've made plans to accept that downer early on.

*Based on the myth of dragons coming from the moon. Who cares if it's accurate? As long as it fills the howling gap of an uncompleted narrative, my mind will be somewhat more at ease.
