Hi, everyone. I have just read such a sentence in Game of Thrones: "He was so scared he might have pissed himself all over again, but the cold was in him, a cold so savage that his bladder felt frozen solid." (#1) This reminds me of this sentence “He’s dead!” Joffrey sounded so proud and happy you might have thought he’d skinned Robb Stark himself"? (#2) I think both sentences express the idea of "imagined reaction", i.e. the author is imagining a possible reaction that might have happened but didn't actually happen. In #1, the author is imagining his reaction; in #2 the author is imagining the readers' reaction. Am I right? Thank you.
