  1. I was both More outdoor-type especially when younger, later a little bit of both I also remember fondly my summers at the town of my grandparents where I could go to play outdoors, to "chase" cats to later play with them (the town had lots of friendly cats), walking the dog of my friend in the hills, washing her dog, getting dirty, the swimming pool, making a shelter in the garden, playing tennis or soccer on waste ground, and of course using the money to buy pastries or whatever. Riding the bike (although in my case I was almost a teen when I mastered the technique). Rainy days watching films or playing with Game Boy or Playstation. Then going out at nights, firecrackers and ghost stories...
  2. hehe! From what I remember, the games were all preinstalled in the computers of the school, so we didn't have to insert discs But yeah, I used floppy discs at home to save the drawings I made with Paint and pictures of characters of series I watched or other things that I found from the Internet with the modem connection when I was a kid. I remember that my parents controlled the time I'd be connected because meanwhile that meant they could not use the phone and also....the price of the connection.... And I kept buying PC's that could still use diskettes much longer than other people did, although same with Internet connection, I didn't get ADSL until 2006-2007.... (and I still have VHS's and a player.....still working). And Carmen Sandiego was so difficult indeed! I remember the questions' thing! Another one we played was "Prehistoric" for MS-Dos... Still? But it is as good as the MS-Dos version? I just remember him always falling down!!!! ETA: It was so good indeed!!!!!
  3. I doubt it as well, but it can still happen, and it would certainly be great. And yes, Arya would be agreat ruler as well. I'm also inclined to think that if the continent is still standing on by the end of the series, he'd possibly be Lord of the StormLands.
  4. I don't think that Gendry is the son of Cersei, but he'd make a great King an an unexpected and positive ending!
  5. deletd
  6. It is!!! Oh, just watched until episode 10, and it keeps getting better and better and surprising me!
  7. "i'm a Dracula Cat"!
  8. I'm from the late 80's and I also remember playing Carmen Sandiego and Prince of Persia at the labs of Primary School... I agree on technology and the good barometer between the most younger and the older millennials but also on the nuance thing. For instance, people from my class started having cell phones at age 12, so at around 2000, while I didn't until 16 bc I also thought they were useless/a waste of time (except for the snake game) until I succumbed to them... (they were very expensive as well) and had to spend money every month so as to be able to send SMS. I much preferred MSN Messenger back then. (And even in the Facebook era until it ceased to exist due to FB.....). But of course, Internet on phones was not thing until not long ago so until then SMS were the only option outside home. It's not that everyone started with them at the same age. With Internet connection, I got it in 1999, but then again, I had used computers at school since age 5. And my father had one of those "Big Cell Phones" in the nineties when I was a child, and I wanted to play with them, so it's not that I was unfamiliarised with the technology. Then again, I also remember my long Summer Holidays playing around at town without using technology ...while, at the same time, I was also into all the different GameBoy's when I was like 11 or so. One thing didn't mean we'd not do the other. There was a balance. Both coexisted, playing outside and also Video Games. And when I was a pre-teen I was also playing with people of different ages, my age mainly, but also two years older than me, and 5 years younger than me, so in my case "generations" were not much a thing; although we were all millennials. Then, as for the topic of the thread, I have no problem with talking with people of any age, even people in their eighties, sometimes it's more about personality than anything else; although in general I find it more easy to have things in common with people around my age than a teenager or people in their fourties and beyond; but it's not always the case, since everyone has their own tastes.

  10. Last year I wanted to start its anime due to having some friends that have been watching the anime for years, but the huge number of episodes just prevented me from start watching it. Although, I've watched some random epis and clips with them, and if I want to give a present to them, I already know that a One Piece manga is always a safe bet, and I must admit that I read a little bit of the one I bought for the last birthday of my friend ---------------------------------------------------------------- So, after a long time without watching any anime (except from some of Detective Conan which is always something entertaining to watch and it never ends.....possibly my favourite anime ever), I decided I'd start Sakura Clear Card, basically the sequel of Card Captor Sakura (CCS), that I used to watch as a kid. And the news of the new release could not get me more excited, although mainly because of the nostalgia of those Summer holiday afternoons when I would watch that anime while eating some pastries and drinking cold chocolate . (just like Sakura did in the song endings) I watched the OVA that in theory is the new version of the ending of CCS (basically now a carbon copy of the last manga) and later I proceeded to watch the first two epis of the new show (that apparently follow the ending of the first anime). I didn't watch anymore because I'm not used to wait a week for each episode and it has only been released in Japan as far as I know. So, I'm planning to continue watching in a near future, several ones per day. Looks like the visuals are now better after all these years, and Sakura is now "more blonde" (there's more lightening now in the anime following new trends) but at least the characters look the same in drawing style, and well, Sakura just decided she would style her hair without hair adorns, which is something nice to see. Then, I recently started another anime, which is called "Puella Magi Madoka Magica", that in theory is a deconstruction of the sugar-coated animes of Magical Girls, like Sakura. I must admit that at first I was unsure of watching it, despite having great curiosity in discovering how would they really "deconstruct" it. And well, let's say that I was also strongly encouraged to watch it, and yeah, he ended up being right, it's indeed really interesting (and surprisingly entertaining) to watch. From my perspective, the one of someone who has watched till episode 8 out of 12, I have to say that the sugar-coated opening could not be more misleading to the story we are going to be told. It's not that it's only "dark", although it is, at least it has been sometimes, but it also makes a lot of sense and nothing seems gratuitous. Not only this, but the way the story is divided in their different episodes, in which we get to see the different parts of the big puzzle, as well as the backstories of the protagonists that help us to get the full picture of the different characterisations are both really well-thought Then, let's not forget the "witches" they fight off!!!!!! We get to see a few of them in the first three episodes IIRC, and there is one in particular that was really, really scary. I put her name in spoiler tags because......of important reasons. The drawing style of the "witch battles" is very symbolic and curious as well. I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the show, although I'm also kind of scared due to the fact that a certain night is coming... .
  11. She says: "I love my new haircut!"
  12. LOL it thinks I primarily login with a phone device which is completely wrong, then it incorrectly says I use Android----
  13. This yeah. That was so foreshadowed. I wonder what will happen between them.
  14. Hi everyone, This thread is dedicated to the "not so main" characters of Game of Thrones, especially to their evolution in Season 7 (their journeys until season7, their motivations, personalities, speculation about their future arcs).... Who are those "not-so-main"? The secondary characters! There are many fans that like secondary characters. So this is a place for those who like Sandor, Jorah, Meera, Samwell, Brienne, Davos, Gendry, Lyanna Mormont, Gilly, Yara, Daario, Missandei, Melisandre, etc and feel they need a thread to talk about their roles in the story. The "not-so-main" also refer to the characters that are main characters in the books but don't have enough screentime in the show (at least until now). They are not the main focus of the thread, but also fall in the category given their screentime, so if some people feel the need to talk about them, they are free here to talk about them as well. According to imdb the characters that have more screentime are: Tyrion, Jon, Dany and Cersei --> more than 200 minutes, some ones much more than that.....(Tyrion and Jon more than 250!). They are the big four of the show. This thread is not to talk about the arcs about these ones because plenty of other threads focus on them due to their popularity. Then Sansa, Arya and Jaime in a second category with more than 150 minutes. Not the main focus of the thread, but still a place for them if some people want because they should need more screentime, and thus they are "not-so-main" as well. The rest of the characters have less screentime, even if some of them are considered main characters in the books, like Bran. The secondary, sometimes forgotten characters that are not Tyrion, Jon, Dany, Cersei.... still have fans and lots of people are interested in them even if they are not the "main" characters. Some people even like them more than the big four (like me!) and I felt there should be a space for them. Book readers feel free to talk about the books, because correlations between the two mediums are welcome here. Samwell: In season 7 he is starting his lessons as a Maester, he'll likely discover some things in that huge library. He is one of the most interesting characters in the show and in the books. Which will be the differences between his role in the books and in the show? In the show he defied his father stealing HeartsBane. What's the role of this sword? Daario: He was left in Meereen. Will we see him again? Meera: Reports and screenshots are saying she is arriving to Winterfell. She is Bran's best confident and friend. Brienne: She achieved her purpose but she still has Oathkeeper. WIll that sword be important in the future? And will this have anything to do with Jaime's dream in the books? Which will be her next mission? Gendry: Reports are saying he is back in season 7. What will happen? Sandor: He is leaving the Riverlands with some members of the old BwB and we've seen he has new clothes in the screenshots. Yara: How will her relationship with Theon develop? And Euron's threat vs her alliance with the dragon queen? She has shown lots of strength in both mediums. She is an amazing Commander. Lyanna Mormont: This girl was key to win the Battle of the Bastards and all the Northern Lords respect her despite being very young. Davos: The hand of the King, the Onion Knight. Interesting journey serving different Kings, being taught how to read by Princess Shireen, saved Gendry in the show (Edric in the books), in the show he said some interesting things to Melisandre in their last scene together, a "grey": cold but also good-hearted character. Finally, I'd also add this from the producers... “For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come,'” showrunner David Benioff says. “Well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it — you still want to give characters their due, and pretty much all the characters that are now left are all important characters. Even the ones who might have started out as relatively minor characters have become significant in their own right.” http://ew.com/tv/2017/05/23/game-of-thrones-season-7-pace/ So the "minor" ones will have their arcs, and are kind of important as well This is the thread for the fans of these ones!
  15. Just the fact that it will cover the real ending means that tehre will be lots of surprises and better quality than season 7 (well, that is not very difficult )
  16. Exactly!!!!! And he is the most related to the Old Gods
  17. Totally agree. Some seasons ago. Now, I miss that scheming.
  18. Yes, me too. right now he is pretty boring...
  19. No, I mean, because of that reason, I'd really want to be him to be King. And he'd be a great one.
  20. If only!!
  21. Yes, we were referring to the rebellion charges. Although in theory if the Spanish Judge decided to annull the EAW maybe he could still be judged for this? I'm not sure, I don't think so, but I don't know the details of these things. Meanwhile Spanish Jugde Llarena is trying to go to the UE Cort so as that the decision of the German Judge could be rejected...
  22. A new interview to Joe Dempsie: http://metro.co.uk/2018/04/06/game-thrones-joe-dempsie-teases-unexpected-satisfying-end-season-8-7446643/#mv-a ‘I’ve not envied [showrunners] David Benioff and Dan Weiss the task of having to find a way to bring this phenomenon to a conclusion that is both satisfying for the majority of the fans but also unpredictable.’ He added: ‘I’m sure David and Dan don’t pay too much attention to people’s theories and speculation there is all over the internet, but it would be a bit of an anti-climax if a well popularised theory turned out to be the way it ended. ‘There’s many pitfalls and I think they really have achieved that with this. It’s an ending I don’t think many people will be expecting and I think, on reflection, people will really, really enjoy
  23. Or maybe Bran as one of the Starkest in nature despite of his looks can end up being KITN.

  25. He is!!! Right now only the VicePresident Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría has spoken saying they respect all the justice systems and decisions. PP is having some problems these days since the President of the Autonomous Community of Madrid is under investigation for the forgery of a Master....although she keeps denying it.....
