good morning. I am happy to wake up this morning in Westeros. For those of you familiar with forum games, I am Rocksniffer's oldest Niece. I had joined some time ago as In Lieu of Grayce, iirc ( but can't log on anymore so went with new identity). Thanks to Fragile Bird for the name idea. I will endeaver to make well thought out posts and not to start too many flame wars. Unlike my illustrious Uncle I rarely make drunken posts or get involved in feeding trolls. I look forward to meeting many of you on the board and perhaps at a con ot two.



Here is hoping everyone herein has a wonderful day.

Thank You. Of course I remember Unk telling me many of his friends were in Europe and points east and west. So good afternoon! :)

Thank you. =o)

I hail from Europe. Although I see myself as a cosmopolitan. Not so much European actually.

Hello all, I am a long time lurker (creeping on threads via the Google). Um, I'm an American social justice warrior feminist type who was drawn to this series because of my intrigue for the show (never saw it), which pulled me into the books. I've become enamored with Sansa and how eerily similar she is to me. My name comes from a woman who was canonized in the Eastern Orthodox church, but left out of the Western Orthodoxy (yet I am an atheist, go figure). Uh, yeah! So, I decided I needed more social interaction online besides Twitter and Facebook, so here I am!



As for a living, well, after a rather unfruitful search... and a bad stint in a dying retail chain, I'm preparing for the LSAT! I also survived a rather bad bout of depression following my university graduation. I am writing a novel and I also run a little blog that looks at popular culture through a feminist lens. Uh, so yeah! Hi! :)

Hi, I'm Kris,



Long time lurker, mainly as I usually find the answers to my questions I'm looking for here or someone has already raised any points I wished to discuss so didn't see the need, but finally found something I wanted to post about and ask, so figured I'd come introduce myself here first.



I'm more of a book person than a TV person, in general when there's both anyway. I've read through ASOIAF twice but only since the TV show, I started watching season 1 and got a few episodes in, realised I was enjoying it so figured I'd read the books first before I got too much of the show in my head (I like to read first so my imagination can do it's job and I'm not seeing characters as the actor and places as the sets). I read all the books and ADWD when it came out then continued watching from there on out. I'd say I enjoy the book story much more and grudgingly still watch the show, partly as I still enjoy it somewhat and partly because I feel I'll need to, I know I can't avoid it forever and I'd rather be spoiled by it than Facebook or gossip. Also contrary to that, partly out of curiosity, I'd feel I was missing out hehe. I'm only explaining this here so you get a feel for where my needle pointer stops.



After discovering these forums and the wealth of content, theories and things I'd missed, I had another read through so I could try and spot and see in depth some of this myself, and I'll likely read through again this year or early next before TWOW(I hope anyway) to see if I can find anymore things I've read since or missed in my 2nd.



Anyway cheers for the help and information that I've been to thick or impatient to see :dunce:, this place has opened my eyes to a lot and made the story a lot more rich for me. I hope I can fit in and contribute(though in truth my post count likely won't climb very tall or very quick haha)



See you all around the boards :wideeyed:

Hey guys!



My name's Greg. I'm a musician from Nashville, and I'm obviously here because I'm a big fan of the books and the show. I love the gritty realism and how it's closer to the chaos of real life than most works of fiction. Favorite characters are Tyrion, Eddard, Robb and Jon...so I'm pretty much just waiting for Tyrion to die. :/



I'm into music, classic literature, sitcoms, old videogames, comic books and shonen anime. Nice to meet all of ya!
