  1. Does anyone need a Titancon membership? It turns out that I cannot enter the UK via Ireland the first on my current visa as it has to be activated etc etc- so I cannot go to Titancon and have to fly back to the US before moving to the UK. So I’m bummed/devastated but c’est la vie. If my membership can be of use to anyone let me know. Or let @mormont know because I check this site very infrequently. I’m moving to the uk to get a graduate degree in Science Fiction and am moving in with @mormont who I met at a Worldcon, so I’m bummed about Titancon, but I win at life. We arrive in Dublin on Tuesday and are staying at The Spencer. Can’t wait to see everyone and if I’ve been MIA it’s because I have been busy doing ALL THE THINGS. xx
  2. I will also be in the Spencer. Belfast attendance TBD at a later date. I’m literally moving from the US to UK next week so there’s lots to do atm. I’ll venture that if anyone else from the greater NYC BwB crowd ends up in Belfast, I will make every effort to be there as I miss everyone already.
  3. Mormont will be crossing the Atlantic late November because our offspring have decided that they want to share a 'real American Thanksgiving.' Which means Mormont will be in the NYC/Philly area for a week late November/early December. Will be booking flights in the next few days, but I wanted to hive mind the best dates for everyone for a BwB visit night in NYC and also potentially in the Philly area. I'm thinking we will spend half the time in NYC doing tourism things and visiting and potentially a Philly day as well. 2 days in South Jersey should be an adequate period to spend on requisite family time and for me to cook a turkey that neither Mormont nor myself will eat, lol. How does the weekend after T-day look for everyone vs the weekend before?
  4. This looks good, but I need to figure out some greater logistics and touch base with the rest of the crew. Thanks!
  5. Yes, that sounds great.
  6. I'll be there with The Geekling barring some disaster. Membership purchased. No idea on Eurocon and likely won't know until the summer.

    Yes. To all of this. And also, could someone BESIDES Davos had begged Mel for magic. We set up seasons of Davos hating/being afraid of her magic. And then today he 'magically' oh Mels, can't you do a little hocus pocus for us? That line couldn't have been delivered by anyone else? They just assassinated the character they set up.

    Well, it's nice to know there are a few minutes that I can sneak to the bathroom if I forget before the show. So that is nice.

    How would you rate episode 602?

    3/10 Bran's visions were good. I hope they are setting us up for more. I liked Arya's scene. That was solid. I was glad to see Thorne get his at last. That was it. It was farrrrr better than last week's episode, that is for sure. I thought it was full of plot holes, but I am getting used to that and trying to focus on what's good and just gloss over the rest.

    [Spoilers] EP602

    I am a. Glad that Jon is back, but not convinced he is gone/not just glamoured by Mel... I think UnJon is too cheap and I am prayyyying that GRRM can do better.... b. Loved the flashbacks with bran and hope it is setting up more of Lyanna's backstory or at least setting up TOJ. Looking forward to that. Hopefully they get it right. c. Loved Arya. Looking forward to her development. d. Loved that the wildlings came to Jon's aid to defend his honor and Thorne finally got his. I'm wondering what the effect Jon's second coming will have on Mel and the wildlings. Is he removed from the NW now? I could care less about the rest of the show/characters at this point tbh.

    They broke the internet. And ewww UnJon. I pray to Rhllor that GRRM does not make UnJon.

    I hate everything about how they are doing this, but I am also glad that they are doing this "Weisseroff" style so that the books will still be rich and done right and still surprising and unspoiled. Also, I bet she fails because shocking...

    [Spoilers] EP602

    I loved the Bran flashbacks and I am glad that Saint Tyrion didn't go the way of Quentin. Really excited for the Arya arc. At least this part seems to still be in tact.

    How would you rate episode 601?

    Terrible. I have one more week of complimentary HBO. I will not be paying for it. Glad I didn't jump the gun and renew. Eh.

    How would you rate episode 310?

    4 Worst episode of the season. What a let down. Even my unsullied friends thought: meh.

    [Book Spoilers] EP309 Discussion

    It was flawless. Talisa had a point for once. I just sat stunned after. Faith restored. I hope that they can keep true to the books from now on.

    How would you rate episode 309?

    They nailed it. I was shaking and I knew what was coming.

    [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    OMG. Yes, please. The best way to untie the Mereenese knot is to just burn it! Goodbye harpy, Krappo mo Whattiz, and floppy ears. It will also end the pale mare by burning the infected bodies.

    How would you rate episode 308?

    I gave it a 9. I am very happy with this episode.
  20. Thank you for this! Comcast decided to freeze on me at the end of the episode AGAIN! It's only happened twice and only when I'm watching GoT! I missed dead Ros last week because it froze.
  21. Cat can only insist on things if they give her lines.
  22. Me too. The intensity was certainly there. He's a perfect Jaime.
  23. My non-book reader friends informed me they now hate Sansa. She's discriminating because he is a dwarf. THAT is how it reads.
  24. 6/10 Talisa: -1 Talisa talking and being Talisa and Cat says not much: -1 Sansa looking ungrateful because the surprise needed to be there: -1 gratuitous nudity: -1 I was so excited to see A BEAR! scene, but there was something somewhat blander than I had expected. I didn't believe they were in danger. When I read it, I was trembling.
  25. Character assassination of Sansa is complete. Everyone hates her because she is ungrateful.
