Introductions

Gonna use this thread to re-introduce cause it's been a minute, y'all.

Hey. I'm Dani. Y'all might remember me as a dumb idiot kid named R'hllor Coaster. I'm in Ireland now, I'm genderfluid (any pronouns good), I'm married, and I'm damn near 30.

Hi, I'm Cecilia (the blacktea thing is obviously my drug of choice), I am one of those poor souls that came across A Game of Thrones back in 1997, I lived in Strasbourg but was in NY because of my father's work, I was 17 and my mother decided to gift me some books, since I had a bad case of jet-lag insomnia and I had already read all the (many) books that I brought with me...And I thought "oh, this book seems nice, and it is the first of a saga, so if it is actually good, there will be more...". The idiocy of youth. 

I remeber ordering the second book in a Rome library (i wanted to read it in English, even if it is not obviously my first language), and it took about 40 days to arrive, and we had to move to France again, and I was frantic that I would not be able to collect the book and read it before moving. 

Now I am 38, and I am cool with the waiting, as long as the next book will be able to deliver the same emotions and epic of the others.

I joined back in 2011, when I was doing a re-reading before ADWD, but until now I never had time to participate in discussions. Recently I switched to private practice, and I finally have time to pursuit other things aside from work :P.

Last thing: while I may have read ASOIAF at least 5 times, I am not particularly a fan of the show. I watch it, mainly because my husband watches it, but I do not like it. Not a bit. À chacun son goût. (To each his own)

Hey, I'm Lizzie, I'm British and a freelance illustrator. It's nice to finally be here!

One of my best friends recommended ASOIAF to me 5 years ago - she lost interest in the books but I've been sucked into the yawning abyss and haven't looked back since.

During my first time reading I skipped through a lot of important information and I'm trying to rectify that by listening to the audiobooks. And I listened through every excruciating second of Roy Dotrice's sex scenes with only mild regret, because I still got to experience the series all over again!

I have some gripes with the writing, but all of that is made up by GRRM's intensely atmospheric descriptions, excellent character writing and incredible world building. I can't express how happy I am to be part of a fandom which produces such top notch theories and analysis, and I'm excited to see what's in store for us in The Winds of Winter!

Welcome aboard!

And let's face it, nobody offers negative feedback more regularly than die-hard fans! :D

Ditto! :D

I once loved it, but it has really gone stale and, to be honest, stupid.

Also welcome!

Not a huge fan of the "Introductions" thing, but here we go. I'm Fae and my long watch for the next book in ASOIAF began many, many years ago after ADWD came out after I binge read the series prior to getting into the show. Nice to meet everyone!

Hello, I go by the name, Mother Cocanuts. Reason being is that I don' t know how to spell, "Coconuts." Some facts about me:

 1. I rather laugh than argue, but don't underestimate me.

2. I am a huge anime fan.

3. Despite my going by the title "Mother Cocanuts"I don't conform to cisgender binaries.

4. I... (leave the rest to you.)

Hello! Have seen this board for years and would lurk every once in awhile. The Unholy Consult discussions, ironically enough, brought me here.

Hello! SUPCOM0356 here. Have been a viewer of the forums and the wiki for awhile and finally decided to contribute! I also think my friends are tired of trying to explain the lore of ASOIAF to them a non-book readers so I have direct all these musings somewhere!

I'm not really new here, but new to this thread. I'm a fan of comic books, mostly Marvel & DC, TV, and movies.

I do like cable channels more honestly like HBO, Showtime, etc. More of the good shows are there now. I'm also a fan of Netflix.

I read A LOT. I haven't reread ASOIAF but do read other related material when available. I read nonfiction bios and history. SW novels as well.

 

That's about it for now.
