This is not a novel, but it is enthralling and enchanting nonetheless

Not that I feel 'entitled' to it or anything like that, I'm sure there's plenty that he keeps mysterious simply because the allure of mystery is a good time (or even cause it allows you to skip some details), but I guess I'm just really curious about how he constructed all this stuff and what his overarching 'bible' might look like
What are the black stone structures???

The symbolism is strong in this clip. I can decipher that the battle against the Night King will engulf the entire North. And afterwards, Cersei will take up the mantle as the last baddie. This trailer seems to hint at such. Which many people thought would be the case anyways.

It was a beautiful trailer, but my appetite won't be satiated until we get a live-action trailer. That should come around the last week of January, or the first week of February.

i like it better than the season 7 Sigils teaser, except that one actually had a new line of dialogue whereas this one doesn't…

Obviously it makes sense they'd have the teaser be ice and fire, but would've thought the fire would've started with the dragon, not the lion. Trying to see if there's some secret message in the where the fire was. Might be thinking too hard.

As over-the-top secretive as they have been for this final season I wouldn't be surprised if the promo material is even less informative/spoilery and amount than usual. For past seasons even with leaks and pap-shots of filming it was difficult to guess what was happening in trailer footage and official set photos. They're definitely not going to give anything away for S8… Still fun to take guesses about what we’re seeing. Sometimes we're close or spot on, such as the really early S7 shot of Arya on her horse looking at something in the distance that did indeed end up being her seeing Winterfell upon her return.

this is very cool imagery, and i think it's a smarter tease campaign than some stuff they've done in the past.

That is a great teaser clip! The ever-spreading ice across Westeros from the north, the fire leaping onto Westeros from vessels on the water, and then they meet to form dragon glass. The Wolf and the Dragon become covered in ice, the Lannister Lion is consumed by flame. So many possible interpretations!

Enjoy it because there will never be a show like this again, even the shows HBO is purposely making because they want more shows like this, we all know they won't be the same.
