When I was working on my PhD I was afraid GRRM would finish The Winds of Winter before I finished my dissertation, because that would ruin my dissertation.
That was more than two years ago now. I earned my PhD and The Winds of Winter still hasn't come out.
@drbjork I had the same worry about my favourite video game franchise and that didn't happen either :D
