btw, i think we should all exchange experiences about reading/listening/watching ASOIF stoned, coz to me, its a godly experience hahaha

I can't comment on watching GoT stoned because that's not my thing, but I can tell you this: I live in Antarctica and, more than once, after watching an episode I've gone outside and thought "Winter is coming?? WTF, winter is HERE!!" which is probably a lot funnier if you have T3 Syndrome/Polar Madness like I do. Welcome.

hahaha please, explain what's T3 syndrome!

It's a little bit like being drunk all the time. Because there is no sunlight (the sun set in April and won't be up again till August), even taking Vitamin D, we all get a little crazy. T3 syndrome used to be called polar madness. It affects everyone differently--some people get depressed and sleep a lot, others hallucinate--but mostly for me it makes me giggle at everything.

Hey everyone! As you've probably guessed, I'm from House Tyrell. I'm a huge fan of the series, the novels first and the series second. When I'm reading ASoIaF, I'm writing poetry and short stories (all of which pretty lame) or cooking. I'm pescetarian, which means I only eat fish and vegetables, for health reasons. I'm not the political type. But I do still cook other types of meat, mostly for my friends and family. :))

I'm a faceless man of Braavos having currently assumed the Lorathi identity of Jaqen H'ghar.

I got hooked on the first season of the GoT TV series when it aired on national Swedish TV earlier this year (it aired on pay cable last year but I'm too cheap to pay for that). Before a trip in early May I bought the first book and since then I've been hooked on the books as well. As it happened I got sent on an assignment to Germany meaning travel back and forth every week giving me plenty of time for reading, so right now I'm wrapping up ASoS and have AFfC awaiting in my briefcase for this evening's flight back to Stockholm.

I discovered this forum - and all of westeros.org - when one of the admins was a guest in a Swedish mini talk show that was broadcast after each episode of GoT with the purpose of discussing the week's episode. I've been lurking since then but finally got around to register yesterday.

Since I have a pretty good eye for details and a more or less annoying ability to keep track of relations and plot threads I'm pretty certain I'll be able to bug you all with a lot of posts in the future :cool4:

My name is Saeed and I am Iranian. I love fantasy stories especially A Song of Ice and Fire actually being able to read that, was one of the reasons for me to restart learning English after 10 years!

My favorite characters are Davos Jon Dany and also Tyrion. can't wait to hear about them and others in the next book

Hi, I'm HopeForSpring.

I enjoy both the books and TV series.

Westeros.org is a great resource for deepening my appreciation of the books now that I'm doing a re-read. It's fun to read all the different theories that people are presenting, although I feel I'm a little late to the party.

I originally posted some of my theories here inside a spoilers tag as a type of introduction, but no one else had so I took them out. I don't want to cause trouble.

Thanks to all for creating such a vibrant community!

Hi I'm Megan and from Australia.

I've been lurking for a few weeks and loving some of the theories I've read so far.

I finished ADwD two weeks ago and am just catching up with the TV series now. I discovered GOT a few months back while overseas for work (had some free time on my hands). By the time I got home I was hooked.

The depth of information on this site is amazing and I'm looking forward to discovering more that I've missed as I look around.

Hi!

I' like to say hello to everybody in this forum. I've reading it for a long time and now I've finally decided to write posts, to share my thoughts and read yours.

I must say my mother tongue is not English (or should I say the Common Tongue?)… Despite my name, I come from the mainly accepted equivalent to Dorne, so please spare me if I make mistakes.

Name's Larry, I am a mason who hails from the eastern foothills of the Connecticut River Valley. I have nightmares about this series not being finished. I only discovered the books a couple of months ago, and I've never cared much for genre fiction, but have read them like 3 or 4 times each since then. I plan to constantly reread them until Winds of Winter comes out.

I also live along the Connecticut River, although I'm not sure exactly where the eastern foothills are. I suppose if I have to ask, then that's probably not where I am. : )

My name is Christine and I'm also relatively new to the series and the board. I'm about half way through ADwD, but I've been trying to drag it out to delay the inevitable withdrawal that will follow. I think I will have to join project re-read soon. I am also starting to get my husband into TV series, as he is not a native English speaker/reader and doesn't really do lengthy English language novels. If anyone knows about an Albanian language edition, let me know!

Hello everyone (:

I've been reading this forum for a few days now and thought I'd sign up, too.

I don't know why, but somehow I never even heard of GoT and ASoIaF until those "Brace yourself"-memes were showing up all over the internet. :D I wondered where it came from and eventually stumbled upon the series and ....well, I couldn't help buying the books! :drool:

I think the thing that captivates me most about ASoIaF is its sheer unpredictabilty. But I'm still in the middle of aCoK, so there's so much more to discover and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you and basically to having a lot of fun in this forum.

...Oh, by the way, I'm Jessica and 17.

Welcome, Jessica. If you are only halfway through ACoK and are bothered by such things, watch out for horrible spoilers of doom as you navigate this place. ;)
