I honestly can't recall much of the first movie but Legacy, on the other hand, was visually amazing.

I think it would be difficult to choose a fave character now, what about you?

I enjoy Tyrion's chapters for the clever dialogue, Daenerys's plot fascinates me, Arya is so extremelly endearing, and I enjoy the dynamics of all the characters at the Wall - their unique perspective of all events to the south.

I'm most impressed with the complexity of each character - each person is treated with a certain pity for their faults.

Although, I was so frustrated at times with Catelyn and with Ned!

It's the same with choosing a favorite house. I would not enjoy any one of them as much if they didn't have the others to contrast with.

My favorite? um......lol

Dunk, Arya, Tyrion, Mya Stone, and Visenya

(I know there are other's but these come first for me)

Cat, blech I hate that bitch almost as much as I hate her sister :stillsick:

Ned :crying: poor stupid honorable Ned!

lol hope you enjoy the boards!!

You're welcome. =o)

That's a thread actually. "The Thread That Never Ends". We currently have No. 453.

And Skyping can be fun indeed.

"Tron" - the old movie - is quite awesome. Loved it.

<waves to Cora> =o)

Guess, we both need to taste that tea Jon mentioned.

Hey! *waves to her king*

Yes, we must try this tea!

This forum has been a godsend for me after realizing GRRM is going to torture my soul forever w the release of WoW... I am a husband, father, Air Force veteran (4 yrs), sports enthusiast, avid reader and believe R+L=J. I fully support the Others as the good guys, at least not purely evil. And above all else DESPISE Daenerys Targaryen a thousand times over!

Ha! This soul torturing is clearly a sweeping epidemic on a grand scale!

Oh, whatyou say about Dany! I can't wait to find out why! No Spoilers! I just started a Clash of Kings!

Welcome from one newcomer to another!

I keep answering that question with everything short of classical ballet and oriental/bellydance (and would definitely do that too, given the opportunity).

Why? I am hard pressed keeping track of all the dances I do. On a very regular basis (two nights a week) I dance the 10 international competitive standard and latin dances: Slow waltz, tango, Viennese waltz, quickstep, slowfox(foxtrot), samba, chachachà, rumba, pasodoble, jive. But I don't actually compete: I dance for my partner's and my own enjoyment. Ocasionally I dance Sevillanas and some flamenco, lindy hop and other jazz/swing dances, salsa and Cuban rueda de casino, bachata if there's no other music in the house, Argentine tango de salón, and a few European folk dances. I used to do even more, and also used to teach the 10 dances and lindy hop and present on stage or in formation dances, but then the kids required me to stay home most nights. Some say I am a true dance enthusiast.

Wowzers! I'm a dance enthusiast, too! I don't participate in nearly as many styles as you do, but I love to try anything and everything related to dance. I do not compete and I don't perform. It's a shame you don't continue to perform and teach! Maybe when the kids get older you will? My main love is classical ballet but I've taken a lot of modern, contemporary, and a scattering of jazz classes too. The occasional tap and hip hop. I just love ballet the most. Though I've never done pointe and probably never will becuase I have plenty of technique to work on without that added challenge. The expense of it, the necessary additional classes it would necessitate and the potential for pain and injury don't seem worth the investment although I would LOVE to try it just once!

Do you attend a lot of performances? I don't attend as many as I probably should. For example, the Alvin Ailey troupe toured not that long ago and I regret not going when they were in town. There's a 3-day dance showcase coming up soon and I'm looking forward to it. It's a bunch of local companies plus a few visiting groups from out of state.

A place for people to post a message introducing themselves to the forum, if they wish to. It's entirely optional to post an introduction, but if you do want to post one, do so here rather than starting a new thread.

It doest seem that way for a first time blogger. Highly intimitated by other posts & no interest in the books or films, just hooking up! Shit forum for us in the UK|

Hello everyone. My other obsessions include Harry Potter, LoTR and Naruto. Picked up game of thrones at a bookstore two weeks ago, and I was hooked from the very first page. I love the extensive world and the complex characters. The characters of Varys and Littlefinger intrigue me the most. My favourite character is Ned Stark. I've finished three books and am halfway through the fourth, so I thought I should join a forum. Funny thing is when I google searched ir, I discovered that this series already has a TV adaptation. Then I saw this great community and thought I should join in. :)

I look forward to meeting, befriending and debating with you guys.

Cheers. ;) \O/

Welcome Moriath to the forum.

Since you have not read all the books, be very careful of spoilers - you may want to limit your participation to the forums dealing with the books you have already read.

If you already own A Dance with Dragons and feel perky you may ponder to read the combined way of reading A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons as proposed in the link in my signature. ;)

I'll definitely try reading the way you suggested senpai! :D. And thanks for the warm welcome!

I don't mind spoilers at all. Actually, this makes it even more interesting for me because I'm able to delve deeper into the mind of the characters and notice more details, because I know what's gonna happen and can focus on the events leading up to that end :D

Hey Moriath! :D

Welcome to the boards!

I like your outlook on spoilers xD :thumbsup:

I hope you enjoy it here and you post! Start threads! Meet people! Oh and don't get scared if the boards shut down sometimes, they come back :D

I respect Varys a lot, he just seems to understand the game :smug: no one can tell him anything!

Welcome!

The board experiences problems now, especially on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, because of Game of Thrones Season 5 airing on HBO....

I made a thread by mistake, my apologies. I will just copy / paste what I wrote there in case it is deleted.



Hi everyone. I just finished reading ASoS and I am really excited to be here participating on the message board. I am treading lightly because I have not yet finished all of the books, but I look forward to lengthy discussions about everything from L+R=J to who we want to hear POV chapters from before the end (ADoS)? :)




Anyway, I just wanted to say hello, not start an on topic discussion in the one place it isn't meant for, so HI all of you wonderful people!!! I look forward to interacting with you :)

Welcome @Stong Belwas,

beware the forum is dark and full of spoilers,

so carefully stick to the forum sections for the books you have read or rather keep on reading the books first.

On killing your own thread: Edit it. Then use the "more Reply Options" button. Now you can change the thread subect to "please DELETE". Replace the contents with the same "please DELETE". Save it. Use the "Report" button next, briefly explain to the gods mods that this thread should disappear. That should safely do it.
