Howdy, y'all!

Okay, I'm not actually Texan or anything, sorry. :P I just came to this forum a couple days ago after my love for ASoIaF began to be rekindled by the ongoing production of Game of Thrones. I read the first three novels way back in 2002, and then eagerly devoured (in the metaphorical sense, obviously) A Feast for Crows when it was released in 2005, but I hadn't cracked open any of the books since then. But as I've started following GoT's progress, I've gotten really into GRRM's fantastic world and characters again, and I figured it was high time for a re-read of the books. I just started AGOT a couple days ago.

When I last read the books, I didn't really know anyone else who was into them, so it'll be nice to have other people with whom to finally discuss them. :thumbsup:

Oh, and as for my name...I'm also a big fan of Bernard Cornwell's Richard Sharpe novels, and I also really enjoyed the TV movies based on them, which starred Sean Bean as Sharpe. Since he's now playing two of my favorite characters from two of my favorite series of novels, I figured I'd combine the two. Probably not as clever as I think it was, but I'm usually pretty terrible at coming up with good usernames. :lol:

Hi!

I was talking to someone from omegle a while ago who encouraged me to join, so here I am :P

I've only had a skim of this thread so don't really know the protocol :P

In a nutshell, I am a 17 year old student who wants to rediscover her love for ASOIAF. I've read the books, but want to have a big re-read at some point. I think I'm looking for a place where I can discuss all my loony ideas and theories on them...

I also love reading, writing and rubbish TV!

so yeah, very briefly, thats me!

Hi, new to the board. I'm a research student, studying archaeology. Big fan of GRRM, but don't know anyone else to banter or speculate with about ASoIaF. Stuck in an airport in England during the snow so I thought I'd get posting on this since I signed up ages ago. Hello! :)

Hello! I got on the asoiaf thrillride back in '03 or '04, about a year and a half before AFFC and I've been stucked ever since! I've ended up hearing about it from a WoT board where asoiaf was describe as NOT about good verses evil but peoples and families motivated by there own self interests. I sounded so refreshing ... until Ned got his head cut off! I've can't get enough now.

I've been bored lately and now I'm finishing up my second reread. I've been a lurker here for at least 9 months and only now have been trying to contribute because I don't want to be considered a floob!

Hello everyone. My name is Jessica and I'm a long-time friend of Yagathai. He and X Ray the Enforcer urged me for years to read the books, but I didn't pick them up until now.

I am seriously regretting not listening to their advice earlier. :) Have only finished Game of Thrones, so don't spoil me, please!

I'm originally from Texas, but currently teaching English in South Korea. I love it very much and hope to make teaching my full-time career on return to the USA.

I'm also really interested in attending future BwB meetups in the future.

That's all for now, folks!

NOOOOOOOO!!!

Look, it was this or back to trolling the Barbaro forums. At least I'm reading something that contributes to my cultural literacy in the world instead of baiting horse fanfic writers.

That Barbaro-Jesus slashfic was the pinnacle of what our civilization can produce. Of this, I am sure.

Hello! I'm using this to re-delurk, since I didn't introduced myself the first time I posted. I hope it's alright.

I'm an university student, studying arabic and persian languages and cultures. I became a fan of Asoiaf about an year ago, when a friend told me to try out the books,

and now, well, I'm waiting for ADWD.

I read also others fantasy and sci-fi books, with a preference for the latter. I've got a little bit of interest in gardening and agriculture, too.

And in historical fencing, partly because of GRRM's books. And in anything related to the ocean. All things I can't do, sadly.

You wouldn't happen to have a Twitter account of exactly the same name, would you...?

ETA: Nevermind. Asked @indigocat, and despite the fact that you both are studying Arabic, you are not the same person. :leaving:
