Hey, thanks for accepting to this forum - Game of Thrones is a favorite for a while just never delve in it more as should until recent. Now can, about something personal...some of a favorite things is Cycling the Bicycle is something am fond about so guess that can be the introduction a little about this profile. So far so good.

Welcome!  I'm also an avid cyclist!  I don't drive very well, so for me it's transportation and not really sport.  In my opinion, you've found the best place on the internet.  Enjoy!

It's  been ages since I participated in a fan forum! I'm 30. I love ASOIAF. Been watching the show since it aired, which led me to get the books. I love connecting the slightly "crazy" theories together (not D+D=T crazy, just A+J=T crazy). I was around the reddit subs for a while, but I missed the forum format for fandom discussions. Anyway, hi!

I'm a Bipolar type 2 fan of Cervantes, Lovecraft, Howard and Tolkien.

Hope you can cope with my mental insanity.  :)

Hello, I'm 27 and from south Florida, US. I've never kept much presence on any forums previously; none of my IRL friends are book readers and I need to get my fix somewhere.

Over the past 2 years I've read (and selectively re-read 80% of): 1-5 ASOIAF +TWOW per-release, 1-3 dunk and egg, the companion histories, and TWOIAF. Recently I've gotten hands on of a cache of eBook copies of Martin's short stories/novellas, at a half dozen or so at present (Starlady FTW).  

ASOIAF is the first and only fantasy series that I've truly gotten into; I predominantly read non fiction with a sprinkling of Vonnegut, Hemingway, random classics, and, sadly, had my introduction to Orwell at far too young of an age to ever be normal. lol 

From my youth, I've spent much time on the water and in the Florida woodlands, my initial draw into the Martin's world was the the level on which characters are at the mercy of the environment. Plus all the sailing, I like sailboats. lol.

Sorry, this ran a bit long.

P.S. when I grow up I want to be Gylbert Farwynd.

Welcome to Westeros, Tyrion Son of Aerys! Feel free to open threads about any interesting theories you have, just be prepared to defend yourself! And you might discover there's already been discussion about your theory, learning how to search can be very useful, lol! Have fun!

Welcome to Westeros, Somni451! Not to worry, we have all types here!  And that reminds me, I really need to read some Lovecraft, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. At least you've mad it to two posts already-post early, post often!

Welcome to Westeros, The Crabs in Hoster Tully!

It's been a while since I did any of the welcomes, but your name caught my eye. Is there a story behind your choice?

You have done more reading than many fans, feel free to share your thoughts about Westeros in the forums. I like to encourage people to post, to get interesting ideas out for discussion. Have fun!

Hi everyone.  My real name is Marti and I'm a long-time lurker and first time poster.  I first read "Game of Thrones" back in 1998 so I'm a long time sufferer of George's snail - but absolutely awesome - pace.

Hello, I have been reading these forums for quite a while now and felt that I should probably sign up. I really enjoy reading everyone's theories and opinions, and look forward to continuing this now as a member.

We're looking forward to having you all!

BTW, you've picked a funny time; much of the userbase aren't using their regular names due to the World Cup. Normalcy will return soon. ;)

Greetings!

I am a newly published fantasy author from Sweden, who still is curious for when Winds of Winter are going to come. ;) 

Welcome to Westeros! I wish you luck with your book. It must be an exciting and nerve wracking time for you.

hey theree

Greetings!

 

For all who are new to this Forum I'd like to point out two things:

- there's a list of abbreviations thread that may be helpful in understanding some of the conversations that go on here. link below in my signature line.

- Forum Games hosts a number of different ASOIAF related contests. There's also TTTNE (The Thread That Never Ends) which is a years long running conversation that ends in a race to be poster #1000. That poster's reward is to start the next extension of TTTNE. Currently, it's TTTNE #473: An Obsession of Joshes.

Welcome back! Some here (not me) have been around all those years since you were last on the site. A bunch of my friends over in TTTNE (The Thread That Never Ends - current thread here:

) have been posting on the regular those 8-9 years and then some.
