Oh yes! Another Game of Thrones / Song of Ice and Fire blog. Just what the world needs. It's not particularly serious, in fact I would say that it's a mummer's farce! No really the site is:

I wasn't kidding about the mummers farce business!

Hi there~!

For my first ever youtube video, I created this masterpiece (biased) for Game of Thrones TV series after months of work. I can assure you that it is high quality work.

Please watch it and comment if you like it. THANK YOU!

This is a video of the opening titles using new music I wrote- the official theme is pretty awesome, but I wanted to see if I could come up with something that sounded a little less "Pirates of the Caribbean" and more "Game of Thrones"... tell me if you think I got close!

I have a blog with linked Facebook and Twitter accounts. Just started it with the idea of commenting on all things Ice and Fire, from a different point of view, that of a bastard from Casterly Rock. I don't think Lord Tywin would approve. :drunk:

It seemed like a fun thing to do. Everyone is welcome to take a look. Just remember it is only a couple of days old and I'm still trying to pull everything together.

EDIT: I got more grandiose, got a domain name and made the entry site a hub for the blog, twitter, facebook, google+, etc., here

Well! A few of us have decided to begin a tumblr of our amazing songs in the thread 'Rhymes for a song...', which is in General ASOIAF. The thread, along with the blog, will have huge book spoilers, so please have that in mind!

The full title of the thread is 'Rhymes for a song about the Red Wedding', but it also includes other big events now too

I'm pretty sure this doesn't count as fanfiction either. It's just a bit of fun - if anyone wants to pop over the that thread and give us their takes on events that happen in the books, feel free! And don't worry; we won't put your stuff onto the blog if you don't want us too! :D

Finally, after my endless rambling: http://shardsofbards.tumblr.com/

Hi there.

Race for the Iron Throne is my new book/tv analysis blog. Starting with A Game of Thrones, I’m going to be doing a chapter-by-chapter close reading of the books, focusing on the reality of Westeros as a political system and analyzing the actions, motivations, and ideas of the major and minor political actors within it. Each chapter post will include the following sections:

  • Political Analysis – in this section, I’ll analyze what this chapter tells us about how the Seven Kingdoms (and Essos) work and don’t work as political systems, and trying to figure out how the various factions and conspiracies are working to their ends and reacting to changing circumstances. When I get closer to the War of Five Kings, I’ll go in-depth into the military strategy of each of the competitors, and what they did right and wrong. As it’s been a while since I’ve read books 2-4 (I just re-read Game of Thrones and have recently read through Dance With Dragons), I may revise my thoughts here as I get further along and come across new information.
  • Historical Analysis – much of the realism of George R.R Martin’s work stems from his close study of Medieval history and the warts-and-all lives of rulers, rebels, and common folk who were anything but morally black and white. In this section, when we run into characters, events, and places derived from historical events, I’ll write about what the real story was, and what Martin kept the same and what he changed.
  • What Ifs – as a historian, you are always reminded of the power of contingency and chance to change the course of events, upending institutions and social forces. This is especially true for A Song of Ice and Fire, where George R.R Martin bombards the reader with missed opportunities, crucial choices, and where the timing of character movements and events are of the utmost importance. In this section, I’ll hypothesize about what might have happened had Ned Stark left on time and wound up on Dragonstone, or if Catelyn Tully had stopped at Riverrun instead of the Inn at the Crossroads, among other things.
  • Book vs. Show – in this section, I’ll point out the places in which HBO’s Game of Thrones diverges from the book series. However, this isn’t a section to list mistakes or complain about the purity of vision slowly draining away – I actually think the series has made certain critical improvements over the books in particular areas – but rather to talk about the necessity of narrative and story, and how mediums change the story without us realizing it.

You can read my essay on the Prologue/opening scene of episode 1 here.

Episode-By-Episode Discussion of Season 2 of Game of Thrones – beginning April 1st, I’ll be doing an in-depth discussion of Season 2, joined by my fellow culture/political junkie, Entertained Organizer and possibly some of our friends. We’ll go into our reactions, thoughts, and then go through Political and Historical Analysis and Book vs. Show.

Race for the Iron Throne - now with Daenerys I! Viserys as a romantic monarchist, Dany as a realist second-generation immigrant, the dos and don'ts of royal incest, why Drogo is a Hun not a Mongol, and what the hell Illyrio is up to.

Eddard I is up, looking at the similarities between Robert Baratheon and Henry VIII, the role of the Hand of the King (and how Ned made mistakes other than honor) and the importance of the Wardenships, the historical parallels between the Battle of the Trident and the Wars of the Roses, and some juicy what-ifs.

Jon I is up, looking at the emerging theme of Robb vs. Jon, vs. Theon as leadership examples, the historical complexity of bastardy in Medieval England, the importance of self-knowledge in politics, and how the tv show actually improved on the original Jon meets Tyrion scene.

Hey, I'm from a small fansite that we hope will begin to expand. For that, however, we need members so the admins can give us our own sub-forum.

If people could register and post at the link below--absolutely anything related to the series. We like to discuss everything, and would like growth in our board to include its very own ASOIAF section. Any help would be appreciated. And you're also more than welcome to stick around! We're a small but lively community!
