I sat on the Iron Throne today you guys. For reals.


#195

pics or it didn’t happen


#196

Sweated my way to the top.


#197

Brilliant :smiley:


#198

one of the dragons will get turned into a white walker

also i think the others are attacking because they made a pact with humans at the end of the war for the dawn that guaranteed the wall would prevent humans from encroaching too far north but because we ignored the pact - i.e., the wildlings it pissed off the others and they decided to take revenge.


#199

i.e., a “man is the real wanker” scenario.


#200

Hey gang. How’s everyone coping? I’m binge watching a lot of shows and reading A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (Dunk & Egg) and have put up my GoT Christmas decorations.


#201

My friend is working on GoT and im very glad that he isn’t telling me anything as per the non disclosure thingy


#202

I have Rogues, which means I have one of the other two short stories he’s written alongside those 3 (not Dunc and Egg ones) but I’ve not read that yet. Too much reading.


#203

book wankers - whats your plan for when the new book gets a release date?

  • don’t need to re-read anything, steel trap m9
  • reread all the books again because i have unlimited time and patience
  • re-read a dance with dragons - quentyn martell? don’t nobody remember that shit
  • worlds going to blow up before he brings another out

Actually did a re-read a year or so back. Can highly recommend using the combined reading order for AFFC and ADWD together. Improves both books massively.


#205

ooh, i might just do that. a lighter could improve feast tbf though.


#206

I voted for the re-read option although obviously it’s more likely that the world’s going to blow up etc., but I plan on re-reading and re-watching everything before the final season is out anyway.

I’m a bit drunk now but just thinking about re-reading and re-watching actually makes me feel really excited just because I know how much amazing stuff I have ahead of me again. (I’ve read the books once and watched the entire show twice all in the past two and a half years or so)


#207

just realised i’ve not read any of them since 2011!! re-read them all when a dance with dragons came out but i had it in my head that that was about 3 years ago or something. :hushed:


#208

what’s this now


#209

This


#210

interesting.

wonder how much of a pain in the arse it is to keep switching books? I guess each one is chronological ie you don’t go back and forward within each book, you just switch between them at certain points


#211

It’s not too hard. I had both as ebooks so that made life simpler. Mainly because there’s no actual numbering I kept having to check after most chapters to make sure when to switch.


#212

does anyone remember the name of the other fantasy series some say is better than GoT, it’s very dense and complicated and sink-or-swim reading? we discussed it earlier this year but i can’t find it.


#213

would be interested to find out what it was, i’m needing something new to read
