  1. Hi- This is my very first posting. I am still figuring this whole thing out. Love the books, have completely given up on the HBO series. Lots of thoughts and questions... will be posting more soon.

  2. Hi.

     

    Some of you may have met me at ConQuesT, others at Archipelacon and quite a few at Sasquan. Certain people told me that if I don't make myself an account here, one will be made for me.

     

    Usually, that kind of thing comes complete with embarrassing avatars and usernames, so I thought I'd head them off at the pass.

     

    I'm from Finland, my work with the Helsinki 2017 Worldcon bid brought me in contact with the Brotherhood Without Banners and now, here I am. I run cons and read a lot.

  3. Thank you very much. I'll have to give The Station Agent a shot but if you get me talking about movies I'll never shut up.

    I appreciate the welcome and I'll try not to wear it out.

     

    You're welcome!

     

    I also like to talk about movies. And "The Station Agent" is really great. Like The Dink.

  4. Hello.

    After lurking here for a while I decided to finally start an account. I got into A Song of Ice and Fire through the HBO series and started to read the books after three episodes because I had no idea what was going on. After that I read through the novels one after another in the break between seasons. The show hooked me because I saw Peter Dinklage's name in the credits whom I liked in "Find Me Guilty". I just recently started re-reading the series so I'm not one to look to for deep analyses or anything. I favor the books more than the show but despite some bad episodes I think it's been entertaining. Not seeing the Bloody Mummers has been disappointing since I think most television shows would benefit from their presence.

     

    I look forward to some interesting conversations or at the very least not making too many enemies. :D

     

    "Find Me Guilty" is a great movie. Loved it. May I recommend "The Station Agent" to you as well?

  5. Pixels is a lot of fun. Enjoyed it. Dinklage is always fun. The ending is the best.

     
    I'm gonna watch it tonight. In 3D! I'm so happy about that because it's going to be the original version as well.

    I'm back from the movies. Did you guys notice Sean Bean?

    And I like it. The credits were awesome too.
  6. Hi all! 

     

    Just noticed this section of the forums (shame on me!) 

     

    Started by the TV series too, as I'm not a big fan of sci-fi books. Though after reading the books, I became completely hooked to them, and now I have a lot of mixed feelings about the TV show! I've lurked on the forums and it helped understand a bits of the books. 

     

    See you on the forums!

  7. Hi!

     

    I joined the forum a week ago, but have been lurking for a while. I am a relatively new fan of the ASoIaF books as I've only started reading them a year ago. I've recently finished all the books, and I've also been a loyal viewer of the show. Actually it was the show that got me to read the books in the first place.

     

    I am hooked on the series and can't wait for Winds of Winter! :D

     

    Welcome to the boards! :cheers:

     

    And Sophie Turner as your avatar! That's nice!

  8. Hi  :D

     

    I'm an extremely new fan of the show/books, I've just watched all 5 seasons of the show within the past 5 weeks and I'm about 1/4 of the way through the first book. I'm absolutely hooked on both the show and I'm loving the first book so far (I'll definitely be purchasing the rest of them) and I thought I'd join here to chat with other fans. 

     

     

    I joined this forum a year ago, but I've only lurked and never posted until now.  If memory serves, I think I'd read through nearly to the end of the 3rd book before I saw any of the series, seasons 1 and 2 being all there were at the time. Then I finished off the rest of the books fairly quickly before season 3 came out.   I'm pretty much just a casual reader of the books and a casual viewer of the series, so am somewhat in awe of the knowledge of others. I am finally re-reading all the books now, and  though I know I don't really know much, I occasionally want to post because I am surprised at times by what some people have been saying in reaction to Season 5. I think the biggest thing that surprises me on these forums is seeing which characters some other fans admire and/or dislike. It makes me realise that some other fans have profoundly different values than I do.

     

    Welcome to the boards, you two! :cheers:

  9. Hi!

    A few years ago I was introduced to the Game of Thrones show just before season three began, and I was immediately hooked, which is no surprise coming from a Tolkien fan (unlike ASOIAF, I'd read the books before the movies). A little while later I started reading ASOIAF, and got through the beginning of book three.

    A few months ago I found this forum and also found how many details I've missed during my reading of the first two books. As of now, I've started over with book one, this time taking notes and highlighting bits that stand out. It's amazing how many details and clues there are on every page! I'm definitely enjoying the books much more now, and I hope to participate quite a lot on this forum since I've restarted this journey.

  11. Hi folks!

    Just decided to check out some forums for ASOIF while I'm waiting in vain for Winds of Winter. I'm from the Philippines and although it's a tropical country, we love to say 'Winter is Coming'. Haha! I hope to read more fascinating insights and theories in here. Cheers!

     

     

    Holy hell, it only took me about 2 weeks to sign up for this forum.   :blink:

     

    Anywho,  I am new to the GoT world.  I started the series last summer, and just started the books this summer.  Hoping to up my GoT game.

     

    Welcome to the boards, you two! :cheers:

  12. Hi all,
     
    Normally I'm not into introductions, but what the hell.
     
    I started watching the show a couple of years ago, which took some convincing--I'm normally the last person to watch anything sci-fi or fantasy-related, or to read anything but nonfiction, but GoT eventually sucked me in.
     
    I've been keeping up with each season, with this past season being the first one that I watched while it was happening. Before this past season, a family member started watching it from the beginning, and that's when I started to notice all the great little details that go unnoticed the first read-/watch-through. So, I started reading the books, got even more into it, and now just after the end of season 5, I caught a bit of the R+L=J theory in a random comment somewhere, and that has totally sucked me in.
     
    I'm currently taking a year off of grad school, working three jobs or so, so I haven't had much time to read for fun, but I'm almost finished with the first book...trying to really soak things in as I go and not read quickly, as I normally do. I can't tell if I wanna finish all the books before I get back into grad school or not, because they're such a nice diversion from all the seriousness of stuff like that!
     
    Anyway...that's my story as it relates to this forum!

  13. Hello!

    I thought I should come and say something over here, since I'm still pretty new post-wise, though I did register a while ago...

    Still trying to figure my way around all the various different topics and things going on, but would like to become more involved :)

    And I obviously picked the wrong moment to do this, as there's no way I'm going to be able to look good after @Alia's post, though I also do not own a pet lion.

    Welcome to the boards! :cheers:

  14. Salutations forum beings.

    I've been a member for a few years, but was inactive for a while and merely lurking and silently judging for the most part.

    (Mostly because I'm bored at work), I finally decided that I should probably introduce myself, stop lurking and start judging less silently.

    So hi, I'm Alia. I like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain.

    And by that what I really mean is: I like to pretend I'm witty and I spend way too much time on the internet looking at pictures of cats.

    When I get bored of cats (or rather, when I fill my daily quota) I read (everything from ASOIAF to Beat poetry, really), play PC games (I suck at console games. I mean, really suck), and watch a lot of sci-fi things.

    Oh, and I'm South African. And female. And no, I do not own a pet lion, contrary to popular stereotypes.

    Welcome to the boards! :cheers:

    That's a really nice introduction.

  15. Hello,

    New member here. I've been lurking in this forum forum for a while and why I never post or regis? Because everytime I want to someone already had the answers. So please guide me in here. Semar send his regards.

    Welcome, Semar, to the boards! :cheers:
