Introductions

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, my name is Pug. I'm not exactly a newbie but I've only just seen this thread and thought I should say hi (guess I should have checked out everything this site had to offer sooner!)

I got into ASOIAF via the HBO show too and am now obsessed! I just want to say how much fun it is discussing everything on here, and thanks for all the theories - credible and crackpot alike, they're all good.

Good work everyone, you certainly make my slow days a lot more interesting!

I have left a few lines on here before, but felt I had to avoid this forum like the flux until I'd read all five books, lest I be spoiled! I've completed that task now, so I'm back to offer my thoughts, for what they're worth.

I'm actually starting over again with a re-read, as I find I have quite a few niggles and unanswered questions bothering me. I've no doubt I'd find the answers on here, but it bugs me that I've missed it in the first place! Serves me right for reading too quickly..it's too big and deep a world for speed reading, so I now intend to take my time and pay full attention to everything and everyone! Though I must say, I don't look forward to reading Dany's post-Drogo POVs again...what a slog they were!

Hey everyone, my name is Rhys. I got into ASOIAF after wathcing the HBO show, I was hooked after the first episode, I then started reading the books and while I was reading the first book I found this forum but I decided that I wouldn't join until I finished the five books, I finished them a few months ago and forgot to join but here I am now.

A little bit about myself my favourite house is house Lannister, my favourite characters are Tyrion, Jaime, Jon, Dany (except for in the 5th book) and Robb. My favourite book is Storm of Swords. I'm just starting a re-read of the series now because, while reading some of the posts on this forum and others, I noticed that I missed quite a bit so I thought I'd read a bit slower.

I just finished off DwD a couple weeks ago and I'm now ready to start engaging in convos on the forums. So far I have been checking out these awesome topics. Man this website is pretty sweet.

Hello.

I am JAHman28, and mostly joined here for the fascinating theories that fly around. I have been very cautiously lurking while I was still reading the novels, and now that I am finished them I think I'll join the discussion. ASOIAF has featured in my every thought for months now, and I rushed to finish the fifth book before it could intrude into my exams.

My favourite characters are Arya, Davos Seaworth, Stannis Baratheon, Jon Snow and Tyrion.

G'Day Everyone,

Name is Adam and I have just recently found ASOIAF. I was reading Game of Thrones when my 6 month year old Pup decided it was a chew toy. I have recently just finished my new copy (ebook) and have seen the entire first season of Game of Thrones on HBO. It has fast become my favourite TV series, and I cannot wait for season two. I am pumped to continue reading as well.

A little about me, 21 years old, and I live in Australia. I love to go to the Gym and play Australian Rules Football. I have joined this site to meet fans of ASOIAF, please feel free to get in contact.

Cheers,

Adam

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to introduce myself to this board which I avoided for the better part of a year to avoid spoilers. So now that I've finished "A dance with dragons" last week I finally want to delve into the discussion :-)

I'm a 39 year old psychologist from Germany and started listening to the German Audiobooks of A song of ice and fire last february. I got hooked pretty quickly (probably during the first chapter) and really love this epic story - my main fear is if GRRM will be possible to bring it to an ending which really is satisfactory... which may be the hardest part with ANY story. As a fan of TV shows like Babylon 5 or Lost, I have often experienced that something does not end quite as great as it started...

My personal favorites are Daenerys, Tyrion and Oberyn Martell. The only elements of the saga I did not thouroughly like were Briennes journey in AFFC and Aryas part since she left Westeros.

See you on the board!

Hi, Iam Anja, German, 40 and currently live in Indonesia. As a fan of "Lost" I first stumbled across the ASOIAF series via @DamonLindelof who tweeted his anger about GRRMs concerns that he would "do a Lost" with ASOIAF's ending. The HBO series got me hooked, and then I read the books and have just finished ADWD - feeling a little empty now... :(

During Arya's travels to and through the Riverlands I almost stopped because it was hard to bear all the violence and cruelty, especially for me as a mum of several small children. But I made it through and of course cannot wait to find out what happens next.

I wish I had found this site earlier to exchange thoughts while still reading the first four books. The theories coming up in this forum are quite amazing and I feel that somewhere in the near future I have to join the re-read. I was so anxious to get through the stories that I missed a lot of small (or sometimes even bigger) stuff.

Hey guys :) My name is Kara & I'm brand new to this forum - a Commoner, as you can see xP

I got hooked at the ASoIaF series last year. I took a break between A Storm of Swords I and II because of the exams and schoolwork, but picked up as soon as possible and now I'm reading A Dance with Dragons.

I love this blog so far. I hope to spend more time here with fellow fans, discussing every tiny itty bitty detail of the series - as proud geeks should xD

Hi. I've been a lurker on Westeros.org for a couple of years. I read anything from non-fiction to fiction to graphic novels. I really enjoy ancient and medieval history but I also love Victorian era through 20th century history. I try to go to Comic-Con every year and I really enjoyed the Game of Thrones panel in 2011. I live in Virginia Beach and am a civilian working for the Department of Defense. I was introduced to AGoT by a Belgian friend of mine.

Hello all ... my name is Joan. I've been trying to avoid too much internet exposure until I'm finished reading, but was delighted to find the chapter by chapter threads! I ruined a few plot points on the wiki just reading house and character descriptions. UGH. Anyway, I'm almost finished with ADWD (about 200 pages left). I started reading GoT while hubby was deployed in August and I'm almost done now! Holy obsession. Hopefully I can keep myself from spending all day on here.

Welcome. But I have to point that actually, there are some bards you can trust.

Hi *waves*

A dear friend twisted my arm to read the books before AFfC came out - dragons! zombies! riddles! a guy called Jaime Lannister! :P - and now I'm a huge show fan as well. I'm mostly interested in the politics and the speculation about the prophesies. My faves are Varys at all times, Dany when she has a plan, all Baratheons and Tyrells (especially the Queen of Thorns and Loras), Sansa starting from ACoK, and then Jon and Tyrion when they are doing something else but wandering beyond the Wall or the narrow sea. Overall, I'm more of a happy fan than a hater but I'm not short on opinions either.

I'm on my third epic re-read where I have sworn to myself not to skip anyone's chapters in the rush to the ending.

What's up, folks? My name's Rose, but I'd rather be called Aurelia on here. I'm a student from Australia who just wants to kill some time.

I first got into ASOIAF from watching the HBO series (after my best friend recommended it) and now I'm pretty much hooked on the series. I'm up to A Storm Of Swords, but haven't started it yet because I'm having a little break.

My favourite characters so far are Arya, Dany and Bran. I'm also slowly falling in love with Brienne as I read on.

A hearty welcome to all our new boarders. :)

For those of you that are yet to finish, and are worried about spoilers, the best place to hang out would be the "Still Reading" threads.

Enjoy!

:)
