Hi I've already read all the books but I am planning to reread them, plus I wanted to join in before he releases the next book.... haha I think I should have enough time.

barely. Welcome @taotao, good you made it in time :) But after the next book is still before the (next) next book.

I'm on a bunch of other forums, also as Philpenn, concerning art and music. Say whats up if you happen to see me on one of them. Cheers.

Cheers, welcome @Philpenn!

Hey hey-

Name's John, from the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania (hence the moniker). Been a huge fan of GOT since S01E01, and began reading ASOIAF post season 3. Definitely never read anything so fast before. Wrapped up all the books plus the Dunk/Egg and Greens/Blacks short stories a couple months later. I'm on a bunch of other forums, also as Philpenn, concerning art and music. Say whats up if you happen to see me on one of them. Cheers.

Welcome to the boards! :cheers:

Um.. you forgot a period at the end of your sentence. That could be considered a death sentence here. Just joking! Welcome to the board.

Thanks for the welcomes all.

Faceless Athena- Favorite house is Florent, simply because I'm a huge fox fan. Favorite characters are Davos, and Casso The King of Seals. I like the show and the books almost the same. Mayhaps due to starting the show before starting the books. Now I'm at the point of just wanting the story be it from either. Character the show left out that I'm most bummed about is probably Strong Belwas.

Also, random question. When I registered, there was a prove you're not a robot question of which house has a lion sigil. I answered Lannister to be safe, but what would have happened had I answered gold, red, or green & yellow checkered?

Haha crazy cool choices! I think Davos is pretty awesome too!!

Um... Idk what would have happened? Maybe they would have asked you to try again :idea: idk though. Lol

I hope you stick around and enjoy

your time with us :D

Jon W. What if I only wait 70-80 seconds ;)

I’m from Slovenia and I haven't written in English since high school, so it might take me a while to get used to it again :)

And my favorite POVs are Jon and Eddard, but otherwise i'm fascinated with Targaryens :)

I wonder what would happen if someone answered:

House Reyne, House Manning Houses Grandison, Jast, Osgrey, or Parren...

Welcome to the boards!

I hope you'll have a great time here :)

Hello everyone, I just joined.



I am 28/yo female.



My name and avatar are Tron-related but I'm not really sure why. I just kind of picked them and will likely change them in the future. (They are so unrelated to this whole Song of Ice and Fire world but, you know, I am in this forum so I obviously like that.)



I'm a fan of sci-fi and fantasy movies and shows (Firefly, Eureka, X-Files, LOTR) though I have read very little sci-fi and even less fantasy.



So I'm nerdy but not the sexy CosPlay kind of nerdy, just the kind that sits at home and reads and drinks tea alone like a hermit loser.



I'm even too afraid to start going to the local game shop to join in the RPG club there even though I really want to.



I was considering taking up a prison inmate penpal but that seems drastic and probably wouldn't turn out to be as devastatingly romantic as I imagine it would be.



I have never seen the HBO show - Game of Thrones. I have only read A Game of Thrones and the very first part of A Clash of Kings. I have read all of the World of Ice and Fire. It had some spoilers.



Lately I have been feeling really lonely and without friends to connect with. I have only lived in this city where I live now, for 2 and a half years, but I've never been a very outgoing person anyway. I barely had a social life before that.



It's hard for me to make new friends and I think I have trouble maintaining relationships. I really just want people to talk to, a community to be part of. So here I am! Hello! I hope this hasn't been an overshare.

Welcome @Quorra!

Have you read all the books? ...until you've read all of the books, beware of spoilers.

What to say? The internet offers lots of opportunities for shy people. I used the IRC network a lot in the olden days. It is no real-life-worth substitute for a real life though.

Otoh, when you try going out with chat friends, you may like some of them and instantly feel familiar. The effect has been researched, and it is true that chatters trick themselves into familiarity, but does it matter? Real life shy people might use drugs, or alcohol, or going for common high spirit experiences like visiting a fun fair together or go out dancing.

Who's gonna stop you from combining some of them?

Learning to dance is a great way of changing the way you feel about the world around you and to change the view the world has about you. Pick dances where you dance mostly just for your self like the ballet, jazz, Oriental or flamenco dances. Or modern jive or lindy hop, where you would change partners every 3 minutes, so you don't need a relation to take too much care of. And it is good fun for you all the way. In dancing class, when you learn just for yourself, you need not take care about your looks either.

I have some trouble maintaining old and long time ago friendships myself. I have never been a regular holiday postcard/christmas card writer. So I tried to bind the names of important people to calender days 1...28 or so, so a look in the calender makes me at least rethink the matter and remember. And maybe, once in a while, write a letter, or an

email, or make a phone call. It does not work so well as it may look, but it keeps me busy not forgetting and not berating myself for doing even less ;-).

Jon W. What if I only wait 70-80 seconds ;)
Will it still taste good?

It will taste too watery but a little sweeter. After more than 2 minutes the awakening-refreshing traits will fade and the taste of bitterness will fortify in the brewed tea.
