Introductions

Oh, just found the thread!

hey guys, I'm from Greece and it's really cool to find people to discuss ASOIAF because I have met literally no one who has read it!

So, I read some years ago the comic and the story "Hedge Knight" and the short story "Ice Dragon" but I always thought I wouldn't really like ASOIAF, thinking it like one more LOTR clone.

LOTR was the top and best series ever until I read ASOIAF, after seeing the HBO series. Now, I consider them equals really. I read the books in, I think, nine days and I'm not going to praise it more cause I know you all love it! My favourite male characters are Jon Snow, Rob Stark and Oberyn Martell (hoping Jon will not end up dead too!) and female Arya. (I started liking Dany but sometimes she pisses me off!)

Hello everyone,

I'm a fantasy fan whose been meaning to read ASOIAF for a while and finally got round to it thanks to the show. I got completely hooked having read all the books in the past few weeks and am planning on starting the Dunk and Egg stories as soon as I can get my hands on them :read:

Thought I'd join the forum as I'm now kinda obsessed with these books :D

Hi everyone, I'm new to posting on the forums however, I've been lurking for awhile and I figured I should introduce myself.

My given name is Jenn but Tempus or Tempy is fine. I live in SLUT, I work the girnd every week while juggling family and reading is my escape from this pugatory we call life. Fantasy is my favorite genre and I was never able to get into ASoIaF eventhough I had received many recomendations for it. So, I can't say I've always been a fan. I can say that when HBO released the series realized I never really gave AGoT a chance.

So, the seson ended and there I was jonesing for more. I went out and picked up the series or whats been published so far and I've just finished up with ADWD. It seems GRRM has put a spell on me, not that I mind but, I can now say that I am a huge fan, wee bit addicted and can't wait for TWoW.

Anyhow, as I had started to explain, I've been lurking on the forums for awile I stumbled upon the site trying to get answers to questions that had crossed my mind while reading the series. Not only did I find the answers to the questions I had been looking for but I found new theories and questions like R+L=J that I hadn't even thought of! It's exciting to have found the forum, a place I can share passion with people who enjoyed ASoIaF and who would understand why a question like "What is the birthstone of September" would provoke a response from me of "Thapphireth! "

Well, enough of my rambling, nice to have found ya'll!

Hello all! I'm Queen Regent (no Cersei isn't my fave, but that was the best name I could come up with!). I love ASOFAI... stumbled upon the HBO series and then was hooked. I'm about halfway through AFFC. Couldn't put the first 3 down, but am struggling a bit with this one. Hope the next one is better! I read at night right before bed, so I love coming to this site and seeing what I've missed. I only know two people IRL who have read the books, so I don't have anyone to really chat about it with! Glad I found this place!

I've been roaming around the forums for about two months now so I guess it's time I finally introduce myself :-P

Basics? My name is Kseniya, I'm from New York... Started reading the books after the HBO season ended, and finished ADWD about a month ago. Pretty hopelessly into the fandom now, and I'm loving it :D

Since I need to post in order to do anything with my profile, why not introduce myself? I have spent a good part of this year reading the series and just finished A Feast for Crows. My copy of a Dance with Dragons is due to arrive today so I'm really looking forward to continuing the saga. I feel like I sort of stumbled upon these books with HBO's help, of course. I've been a fan of HBO series and an avid reader so I decided to start a Game of Thrones so that I could read before watching. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I'm very glad I got into it. :laugh:

I'm a massage therapist in Salt Lake City where I own a private practice. Besides reading, I snowboard, ski, mountain bike, and go to music concerts in my free time. Yay!

I started by watching the HBO series, then read the five books as fast as possible. Now I'm looking for the Tales of Dunk and Egg. I wouldn't call myself a big fantasy fan, but I like A Song of Ice and Fire, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Frank Frazetta's artwork including the animated film Fire and Ice.

I live in Brooklyn where I do not work. Soon I will be attending Graduate School.

I'm an occasional lurker who started ASOIAF just before ACOK came out. By browsing the forums I've discovered I missed a few things in the series. Until I have something relevant to add, back to lurking for me. Just popping in to say "hi."

Hi.

Hi All,

I'd been a fantasy fan from years back with LoTR, the Belgariad/Mallorean by Eddings and numerous others. I'd stopped reading for at least 15 years due to my needing the time for real-life, and getting my genre fix from TV and movies. At Worldcon in Reno I got an inkling about what GoT was, even got to sit the Iron Throne, but didn't really pay attention until I hit the Brotherhood Without Banners room party when GRRM came by for a visit. Everyone'd been given an HBO major-house button randomly at the door; I drew the red lion, was told I was an evil bastard but didn't know what to make of it all. Shook hands with Mr. Martin and that was it until I got home and managed to find the TV series still available on-demand.

I had my doubts after episode 1 and even more after episode 2 (RIP Lady), but stuck with it for the next couple of days and was hooked. I began reading TWOP forums and others on just the television show but I soon had to make a decision: Would I stick with the TV series only and try to avoid ALL the spoilers or just Go For It, get the books and make the time. After getting back from Barnes and Noble the next day I began a journey in mid-September that didn't finish until Nov. 17th. I'm now in complete withdrawal. Other cold-turkey addicts get the D.Ts...I'm suffering from a lack of D.T. (Danearys Targaryan, that is :). So that's it. For probably four or five more frickin' years. I live in northern New Jersey and when I'm not trying to figure out plot twists and prophecies I'm blasting Morse Code through the ether on amateur radio and making Windows computers behave as well as possible.

I'm new here as well. I thought forums were dead, so I'm very pleased to have found one that's still active and revolving around a topic that holds my interest.

Hi!

I am a 23 year old norwegian girl. I started reading Game of Thrones after seeing an episode of the TV show. By now I have read all the books. I love the series and I have been reading this forum for a while, so I thought it would be fun to join.

I like Harry Potter, Naruto, The Big Bang Theory and other shows and games and books and stuff ;)

Hi. Sneaking around and stalking your forum really made boring hours of my job pass quicker and in huge amount of rofl-ing. :) I´m Elle, recently drowned in the world of ASOIAF. Right now I´m somewhere between Meereen and Braavos in ADWD, hoping I will have the book conquered tomorrow.

hello! I'm also new. I'm actually not finished reading yet- still in A Feast For Crows- but I just couldn't wait until I finished to start fangirling because my sister and fiance, who have not read the books, are getting sick of hearing about them!

like others I started reading after the HBO series came out, so I'm glad to have found them, because I've been craving a good fantasy series. I'm actually listening on audio book so I can read and draw at once. I'm grad student studying animation- someday when I have some more free time I would like to animate some of my favorite scenes from the books, just for funsies!

Hi all! I only recently discovered this world of Ice and Fire thanks to HBO. But it was love at first sight! When I finished watching the series I became very twitchy wanting to know whats gonna happen next, so I bought myself the whole stack of books and began reading... I just recently finished with ADWD and now I sit twitching again! :)

I really enjoy reading through the forums and wikis because I tend to discover not only things I missed in the books, but also some interesting (and crazy) theories other readers have! I LOVIT!!

Hello hello.

I am from Finland, where the Winter is coming as I type. I've been lurking around this forum for about a year, and I have been pondering about creating an account so that if I sometimes would have something meaningful to write here, I could actually do so. Somehow, I just haven't got myself to do it - but I haven't got anything meaningful to write here sooner, either. Just the other day I got this weird flash in my head about Jon and Patchface connection, which I am sure I have not read here before, so it was time to create that account and blurt my insane theory out.

Because I live in middle of nowhere, I haven't got chance to see the TV-series so far, and I am anxiously waiting HBO to release the DVD.

Hello all!

I, like many others, discovered ASOIAF after watching & loving the recent HBO series A Game of Thrones and instantly went and read all the books back to back before finding this forum. Loved the books but reading the threads here shows just how much more then a simple fantasy series they are, with the threorys and history in the books, I plan on re-reading them in the next year (after the list of other books I have).

Anyway, Im from Kent and yes, I am a Pink Floyd fan (hense the username)
