By now, you may have heard that UK retailer Waterstones recently revealed the outline for George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, otherwise known as the giant set of books that HBO’s Game of Thrones is based on. The original outline revealed some random fates about characters that ended up wholly changing as Martin worked and reworked drafts. Arya, for instance, did not end up with Tyrion or Jon Snow—and thank god for that. Interestingly in the breakdown, Martin revealed there are 5 characters who are such key players that the books were designed around their survival.

We’re about to get into possible spoiler territory, so head away if you don’t want to know what Martin originally envisioned when writing the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Obviously, as Martin’s draft proved, nothing is set in stone, but here are the 5 characters that Martin initially envisioned as survivors while prepping for his series. May they all have equally great fates in the television realm.

Daenerys Targaryen
Dany’s story capably takes us to a totally different part of the world the Game of Thrones characters inhabit. It would totally be a shame for her to die—in the books or on HBO—because Dany’s story adds complexities in language, strategy and location that are integral to the story. Many fans hope she will eventually take over the Iron Throne; but whether or not that ends up being her destiny, I hope we get the chance to stick with her story for a long time to come.
