George RR Martin -- spoilers

Something that occurred to me the other day was a similarity in 
plot elements between Martin's Ice and Fire books and DLOD. In 
both children are scattered and in peril, and while the reader knows 
they all live the parents/mother do not. Its very effective for 
emotional tension, as you fear that the parents will do something 
irrevocable in the belief that their children are lost. I've been racking 
my brains for anyone else who has done this. 

You are trapped in that bright moment where you learned your doom.
