Hi everybody, my name's Giorgia, I'm a 19 years old italian student. I've been reading and passionately loving these books since a few months (I'm currently reading ADwD, which hasn't been completely translated into italian yet) and finally I had to look for a forum to relieve my need to talk about ASoIaF, since none of my friends read it. Also italian forums are more deserted than Valyria, so here I am, with my wonky english...

Thank you everyone for making this forum such an enjoyable place (if i can say that I mean if it really exists in engish)

I am a Norwegian girl currently living and studying in the UK.
I have read all the ASOIAF books before, but inspired by the HBO series (and the unbearable wait for season 2) I have just started on my second read-through. I don't know anybody else who has read the books (but many who watched and loved the series), and so I'm finding it very frustrating to not be able to discuss the stories with anyone without risking spoiling things for them!
Don't know what else to say, really, apart from that I'm a newbie and I look forward to maybe getting to know some of you a bit

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I registered b/c I have a lot of questions and I'm hoping some ASOIAF experts can school me.
P.S. I just saw a billboard advertisement for GoT Season 2 and it has a fist clutching a crown and the words "War is coming..." I'm so excited I need a change of pants.

I'm also a fan of the Kvothe series, but other than that, ASOIAF, and the occasional Tad Williams' re-read, I haven't found too many new fantasy series that meet my interests.
I'm from Boston, Massachusetts. Glad to be a (soon to be) contributing member of the boards!

So I came here to discuss things and ask questions.

I JUST discovered this show and THANK GOD I DID!!! I've been hopelessly obsessed with it for weeks. And my timing couldn't have been better, because the show's returning!!!
My favorite characters are Ned and Danny. My heart immediately went out to them. Even though it appears that Danny would be a cruel ruler, I can't help but root for her. Her story at the beginning of the season was so heartbreaking and pathetic. So, my favoritism towards her is based partially on pity.
And Ned...OH NED!!! THEY DID YOU SOOOO WRONG!!!
I can't wait to chat with you guys and share different theories and opinions with you.

I have been a fantasy fan almost my whole life, some of my favorites are The Dresden files, the dark tower, the sandman comics and of course a song of ice and fire
I discovered the books on the net in my search of something new to read. The characters and the dark feeling of the world was what really draw me into this series.

Of all the things I love about the novels, I especially love the names that George R.R. Martin gives to his characters. One can see in his name creations that he clearly has more than a passing familiarity with medieval names.
Names are a special interest of mine, and anagramming is my obsession. I wonder if members here might be interested in having their names anagrammed into Westerosi names? I do a name anagramming thing on a few other message boards, and I've been experimenting with Westerosi names.
Anyway, this looks like an interesting board! I'm looking forward to becoming a part of the community here.

About me: 21, live in Cardiff where i'm in my 3rd and final year of an Economics and Philosophy degree. And this degree is now suffering due to my complete addiction with the asoiaf books. Hence why i am here to discuss them while i wait for TWOW.
Cheers and see ya around

I've only just seen this thread but I've been lurking for a little while. I'm a middle-aged, dusty old Classicist from Manchester, UK, who would never have given a nod to fantasy until my daughter bludgeoned me into watching Game of Thrones. I resisted during the first run of the series on Sky Atlantic, and then gave in over Christmas when it was re-run over two nights. Hooked! Since which time I have read every book in the series one after the other and am totally in love with the characters and storylines.
Glad to be among friends....

I´m glad that this forum is alive with people who are sharing the love to Westeros with me. Please read my postings patiently - my english will need it.
