Introductions

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Tessa and i'm from the Netherlands. I was looking for a fanforum but their aren't really active ones in my own language and then I found this one. I'm fairly new to the books, I started with the television serie and I absolutely loved it, after that I started reading the books and at this moment i'm reading ADWD. Don't know what to tell anymore so that was it :wideeyed:

Hello there!

The name's Leigh, from Australia.

My favourite character is Bronn. He's not given enough screen or chapter time (I don't think he's a POV character?) but I like his sense of humour and "friendship" with Tyrion. As with everyone in Westeros, his moral compass is quite skewed.

Had never heard of the books until the TV series came out which sucks because I love epic fantasy so I should've known earlier. Just about to finish the 5th.

Looking forward to discussions and dreaming with you all.

First off welcome. Second, Aussies are awesome, I have never met one that I haven't thought was great. My favorites are Ser Jorah, His Grace King Stannis and Dolorous Edd Tollett. I feel like I can relate to all of them a little but. You should read The Hedge Night, The Sworn Sword and The Mystery Knight if you haven't already done so. They are prequel novellas that take place 85 or so years before A Game of Thrones.

Welcome to you as well. I started with the series too. I just finished reading the series for the third time in a year. It's an addiction.

G'day y'all. I'm Laura from sunny (today anyway) Melbourne, Australia.

I picked up A Game of Thrones in Houston Airport in 1997. I devoured it on the 10-hour flight to Gatwick and was hooked. There's no way of knowing how many times I've read the books. I've done a reread of the previous books just before the release of each new book. I've also slipped in rereads in the seemingly interminable waits between books.

I'm a firm believer of R + L = J, that Tyrion, Jon and Dany are the dragon's three heads and that Dany will establish a kingdom in Easteros leaving Tyrion King in the South, Jon Lord Commander of the Nights Watch and Arya Queen in the North. Ok... the last "belief" is really more wishful thinking for the dispensation of my favourite characters.

I speak zero Duth. But Imma guess this says "Hello, welcome to the board, Tessa!

I speak a little Dutch."

Cause it's basically what you hear at 2:15 AM when you're the sober guy in the bar.

Anyhow, Amsterdam is cool, as was Utrecht. But Am-dam became my role model: so many cool dads biking around with kids on either end, chatting away, made me aspire to be a cool dad when the time comes.

I didn't do an intro post before so... hi!

Love the books, like the series. Can't wait for Winds of Winter.

I enjoy fantasy of course (it all began with Tolkien) but for me, what's brilliant about George's writing, is that it reads just as much like a complex crime-mystery novel. The author's a big tease is what he is.

Anyways, nice to be here m'Lords n' Ladies.

though I joined ASOIAF in june of 2012 after accidentally stumbling across GOT on HBO and getting hooked, I have been lurking around the board as suggested in the announcement/help sections to see just what is out there...now that I have read all the books, watched both seasons, repeatedly, and valiantly attempted to at least skim every thread, I figure this is a good place to start...

I am a 61 yr old US Navy vet and a retired marine geologist. I live on the Isle of Palms, off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina. Originally I am from the bayou country of Louisiana...what all that means is I have rarely spent more than one or two nights away from the ocean...I guess that makes me sound like an Iron Islander, but in reality I see myself more as a sailor from one of the Free Cities, Lys would be my choice for reasons I shant discuss in polite company.

My interests include fishing, sailing, books, movies, real vodka and drying my herbs the old fashion way...by smoking them!

I will make evey effort to take responsibility for my opinions, as I do in other places, by using my own version of IMO...which goes something like this...in this old asshole's opinion, this board gives not only insight into an interesting and entertaining series but also provides a great environment for theories, ideas and expansion of GRRM's original concepts!

and hopefully that is the longest post I ever make... :smoking:

Greetings, I am Vilhjálmyr!

I was born during a vicious raid on our village, carried out by one of the nomadic mountain tribes. My people managed to ward off the attackers, alas, my father fell in battle and my mother succumbed to her injuries. I was raised by Arne, the blind blacksmith, who was prudent enough to beat me every day and make me steal food from others, in order to survive. When I was six, the tribe who killed my parents returned to our village. After slaughtering them all, I decided to walk the lands, bedding women and killing men, the way of a true warrior. Never have I been bested... And so I sit, on a rock carved to resemble one of the Earth Gods, Hognír. Waiting, every day, for a warrior with fire in his heart to challenge and defeat me.

Unfortunately, the fabled internet is no place for true warriors, so here is a completely fictional account of my life:

I am Bill. My beard is as red as the robes of R'hllor. I am 23 and live in Germany. My favourite film is Jaws and my favourite part of the saga is 'A Storm of Swords'. I roll my own cigarettes, drink one beer to every supper and have never been outside of Europe. My favourite character is Davos of Seaworth, closely followed by Tormund Giantsbane. I also enjoy football (the one where you use a ball and your feet) and have a dog I call Ghost, which is not her real name.

Bless your heart, Bill. What an ordeal you've gone through to get to our forum. :)

Welcome! Glad you're not actually having to sit on a rock all day.
