Introductions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My name is Graeme and I just joined today. I'v been an admirer of George R. R. Martin's books for some time now but only recently found out about this forum. I'm happy to be here. I looks like there are lots of fun things to discuss. I have read all the books and seen all the TV shows, and like to catch George's blog every few weeks, so it's great to now be involved in a larger discussion group.

See you around

:)

Hello everybody.

My names Philip and I'm an addict.

A SoIaF addict that is. ;)

Seriously though i love these books and this world that George Martin has created.

I want to talk and dissect these books with everyone i meet. It's incredibly frustrating because it seems like everyone i know has never read these books or is even interested in reading them. I'm glad forums like this exist so i can at least see what other people think.

Favorite pov is Arya. Her path has been so tough and as dark as things look, i hope she can find some peace

Hi Philip,

I find that interesting. Here (Winnipeg) it seems everywhere I look I see someone reading one of the SoIaF books. Must just be catching on like wild fire here. I too am so happy to find somewhere to hunt down some good conversation on my favorite series and favorite author.

:)

Hi all!

I've been a member for a while and a lurker for longer but only recently decided that I would start posting. I'm a huge fan of the books and of the tv series. I'm from Scotland and a bit of a history and politics geek, so the "game of thrones" and the medieval setting really appeals. :)

Welcome Kingsguard, your name certainly doesn't' roll of the tongue. Anyway, welcome to the forum! :cheers:

Haha thanks very much!

I had originally picked a non ASOIAF name but thought it would be better to go for my favourite line of the series!

Relatively new to the forum so thought I'd say hello in here.

Names Chris. I'm currently living in Sheffield but I'm native to London.

Read all the books after watching series 1 of the series. I'm now obsessed :wub:

Other interests include TV (sopranos, the wire, boardwalk empire), indie music, drawing, xbox and football.

The forums fantastic, great reading all the theories, however crazy. :lol:

Hi! I am so excited to be a part of this community. I am currently re-reading the ASOIAF and will probably turn around and re-read it again before the next season of GoT. IRL - I am studying to be a massage therapist and am completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training out here in the desert (Phoenix), total geek, film buff and music nut.

Hi everybody, I'm "sans visage" (it means faceless in french langage).

I'm also active in the "garde de nuit" french forum (obviously it is the case for other people here)

I started the first reading (in french) in 2006 and I started a second reading (in english) few month ago.

Usually I prefer the books to the movie, but the HBO result is pleasant enough from my point of view.

I'm also RPG and LARPG player but i'm not only reading fantasy (historical books, detective novel ...)

Occasionaly I like also going to medieval festivals.

Hi Everyone.

My name is Jason and I am from Atlantic Canada. My wife once said she wouldn't be surprised if she "came home one day and found me and a bunch of other geeks running around our front yard in our underwear, drunkenly reenacting chapters from the books." Love the TV Series, the Graphic Novels, and of course the novel series. I am an artist, and I have found myself drawing various characters. I've been creeping this site a lot to see if people have the same theories as me about The Winds of Winter. I look forward to looking further into this site and hopefully not offending too many people with my n00bness.

Hi there. My name is Graham and I live in Sussex in the south of England. I suppose that means that I don't talk like a Stark. ;)

I've watched the HBO TV series and got hooked after the first few episodes. Recently I've decided to go a step further and tackle the books. I've read the first book, which certainly added to my appreciation of the story and to my enjoyment (to be expected), fleshing the story out and giving more weight to the characters. For one thing, my appreciation of Jon Snow has increased tenfold, amongst other things (I don't care for Sansa as a character, but her PoV chapters are interesting). I'm currently reading the second book and getting some Stannis story.

Anyway, I thought it was about time I joined up. So, umm, I did. Thanks.

Hi! I am Stephen and today is my first day wandering in the forums, although I was a member for 1 or 2 weeks now. I just finished aDwD and I've had quite a few questions so I immediately came here!!(actually I just read the Epilogue and it was a hell of a great ending!) I've loved all books, but my favorites were aSoS and for sure aDwD, although I had been spoiled about the RW and another death.

I will have some time until mid-September, but I will then become inactive for Autumn, Winter(:o) and the greater part of spring. Also, I just read the R+L=J theory and I liked it very much :) ((I hope J ain't dead :o)

How many members are active on these forums? (I think this is the most active I've ever joined)

Hi Stephen, welcome! If you get tired of the aSoIaF-related stuff, you may want to check out the Entertainment forum. There's a Breaking Bad thread that might interest you! :)

Hi Folks,

I'm Pete, from Wales, and having recently finished the books for the first time, thought I'd join these forums (I'd avoided the site and most others until now because I was worried about reading spoilers).

Despite the fact that I don't tend to read a great deal, the ASOIAF books really hooked me in (I've been borrowing them one by one from a friend), so much so I picked up AGoT on my kindle and intend to start reading them again pretty much straight away (have to pass the time until the next book I suppose!)
