It's not like they haven't killed off a character before that's still alive in the books (Mance, Barristan, Jojen, Etc). I wouldn't take that as definitive proof.

Theon still has much more to do in the books. And so does Sansa. In the book, both are POV characters, and major ones at that. D&D have killed of characters who are not dead in the books, but almost all of them were more minor or not POVs, the only exception to this being Barristan, but he was more of a minor POV (only having 2 chapters in the last book).

Sansa is distinguishable from those characters because ...

Of the three characters you mentioned SPOILERS Barristan is being set up to die, jojen has fulfilled his purpose (seeing bran to the children), and mances death was feind.

You can argue that both Theon and Sansa are bigger characters than those guys though. Not saying that the others weren't important or anything, just Theon and Sansa have been around longer and I personally don't think they would be killed that way.

I never even thought of them not making it until I came and read posts online about the topic.

I'm pretty sure there was a snow drift, allowing them to survive. When Theon pushed the other person off, they landed on hard dirt/gravel, killing them. Just take a look at these guys jumping from a 5 story building into a pile of snow and imagine that as Theon and Sansa

Sansa is half Stark and half Tully. She can swim in snow.

Usually GRRM makes sure he can get off on all his fans' agony as they watch their favorite characters die, in detail.

GRRM doesn't make sure of anything regarding the show.

I don't really think they would have Sansa and Theon go through all that crap only to have them die like that. Of course it is GoT and anything is possible, but it just seems like that would be a poor writing choice that would alienate a ton of fans, especially since they killed off Jon as well.

i think winterfell hasn't been explained that well but the drop was infact into a moat that has frozen over. it is how theon and his band of iron born managed to take WF.

Well it may not be how it is, but this is how I see it:

Snow can act as a cushion for a fall. There was a video of a Russian guy jumping from a rooftop, landing in the snow perfectly okay. So snow can act like a cushion. Now. I assume Stannis' camp doesn't have piles of snow stacking. As you can see in S05E10, the snow seems a bit thin.

In Winterfell, the snows can be seen thicker and bigger. And by the way, Myranda doesn't fall into snow, she fell into stone or whatever floor they use in Winterfell.

In the books the snow was literally like 50 feet deep where they jumped in and they did survive. This was ripped straight from the book, even though they didnt bother to make the snow as absurdly deep. I guess Hollywood magic as justification for them surviving in the show, but they did definitely survive in the books. So that's why they survived.
