I believe we all got spoiled something while we were reading the books. I'm interested in what you got spoiled and what was your reaction to it.

 

I got spoiled the RW partially, I knew Robb was going to die at the Twins (wiki family tree :bang: ) but Cat's death was a surprise and it still pretty shocked me. Also, I knew Robb would marry Jeyne Westerling.

    I was watching a clip from GoT on youtube while I was reading ACoK, something about Tywin, i wanted to compare it to the book. A comment under the video said something like - 'too bad Tyrion gets killed in the privy, I'll be pissed if he gets killed in the show, he's an awesome actor' - too late did i realise i read it wrong and i spent 2 books not knowing when Tyrion will die. Not to mention I was surprised when it was Tywin who died in the chapter, i actually thought Tywin would kill Tyrion from the privy.  :eek:

   From the promo posters and stuff i got Dany's dragond spoiled, as well as 'Joffrey is the evil king'. Wasn't surprised when Robert died at all.

   I got the KL riot spoiled too although I thought it would just be a minor thing, not the let's-kill-the high septon-and-eat-him sort of stuff. After the RW I got Lasy Stoneheart spoiled but I liked when it happened nevertheless. And Jon's "death" - it was very anticlimatic knowing it would happen. Everything else blew me away naturally.

How about you?

Someone spoiled me for RLJ. :crying:

 

I hate that because my favourite part of the books is the mysteries. Cannot unsee.

I believe I got spoiled on some major traits of the Lannisters and the Starks. And on the Others - although not much in case of their origin but them existing.

I had Ned's death spoiled :( something I'd read online, I don't remember when. It was right before the books started mattering to me as much as they do now, but afterwards I stayed offline till I finished aDwD, so thankfully that was the extent of it.... well, there was a lot of build up for the RW by my (imaginary) friends and others around me, they didn't really spoil it, but I knew something big was going to happen. It was still shocking, of course, but not as much as it could have been if I were a hermit like I wish I was. :dunno:

Someone spoiled Jon's last chapter in DwD prior to me reading it, but to be fair I did wait 3 years to read the book.

Almost everything.

 

I started to read the series after the 5th book had come out and I'd already seen two seasons of Game of Thrones. I didn't mind it, I still enjoyed reading all the books.

Also, I just recalled that I read Theon wasn't dead and appears later in the books. Me, stupid as I was went to the wiki and read he is a POV in Dance. I didn't think he was dead anyway but this pretty much confirmed it. I enjoyed his chapters.

Ned's death. I was searching GoT news while watching season one and there it was.

ETA: Lady Stoneheart. I wasn't 100% spoiled but I remember reading Catelyn's wiki and seeing the subtitle so I closed there. I didn't know who she was until I read Feast. The reveal wasn't as dramatic though...

He's the second worst in Dance, though his last 3 chapters have some interesting events.

Eh, my husband told me a lot of what was going to happen because I refused to read it unless he did (this was before the show came out). Spoilers don't bother me. I read it out if order, anyway.

I saw somewhere that Jon got stabbed to death.  I heard that right before I started reading Feast.  I went through the last 2 books just waiting for it to happen, but it seemed that someone was pulling my leg. I thought that it was a troll who just wanted to post random character deaths on facebook. I held my breath every time I read Jon's POV.  I thought he was in the clear until the very last paragraph!  I was so excited that he made it out alive, and then BOOM!  Crushing blow!  So even though it was spoiled, I was still speechless after that chapter!

Jon Snow's stabbing at the end of ADwD was spoiled for me.  I was trying to be careful and avoid spoiler posts, but that one snuck past me.  I was very sad thinking he was going to die, but when I read it I am now one of the hopefuls that he will still be alive.  I'm pretty convinced that he will be back.  What form he'll be in is what mystifies me now.

I was lucky, I didn't get spoiled on anything.  My friends were great and just told me to keep reading and didn't let any secrets out.  I was also lucky in that I was one of the first three in my little group to read them and the show hadn't yet begun so the mass reading of everyone else was after I had read them.

I knew about Ned's death.  And something about a prophecy and a dragon.  That's pretty much it.

 

My sister did spoil something about the show for me (something not in the books) but I accidentally told her that Petyr pushes Lysa out the Moon Door the afternoon before that episode aired, so I'd say we're even.  :cool4:

Quite a few things, considering that reading about all the crazy things going down on the show was what got me interested in the series. Ned's death, the Red and Purple Weddings, etc. R+L=J was one of the ones that made me that made me think "I really need to get in on this."

Most everything from the first two books, and then ADWD.

Ned's death, the Battle of Blackwater, Tyrion losing his nose. Ned vs Jaime, and also the RW. A lot more stuff too.

I pretty much knew what was going to happen, but didn't know what caused those events and such.

I got spoiled by the first two seasons before I read ASOIAF.

Besides, I really don't understand this generalised obsession with spoilers.

To me, any spoiler on a topic I am interested is very welcome, it ain't like it's going to undermine in any way the pleasure or interest in it in any way.. I would instead be even more hyped up.

Sometimes I think I should found the first spoiler-welcome community on iInternet and see if there are many more like me..

I didn't know the details, but I knew Robb died. I didnt know when, so I got to experience the RW shock. I also knew Jon gets stabbed and during the whole aDwD I was waiting for it.
