Lovepurple: Yep that is the first season, and the website says it doesn't ship here! I hope it is available in Aus, when it comes out. I only have free to air tv, and haven't been able to view it at all yet. lol
Teeny: I do look at the appendices from time to time, but I find I still need that bit of a refresher. I think once I have read the whole series, I will go back and try and grasp the things I missed. He is very detailed with Westeros, and the people. I think this is going to be as big as Tolkien in many more years to come.
My mind boggles just thinking of the work he must do, to get these out. Let alone the other work he does. He must be on the go all the time.

Hooves, I picked up the series many years ago just after the first or second book were written. Since then I have read all of them except Dance w Dragons about 10 times!! You really do need to read more than once. But you never get sick of reading them!

yes i was very intrigued when brienne reappeared! spoiler in white text below, highlight to read!
but did you notice how she said to jaime 'come with me, we've found sansa stark' and he went off with her... i really couldn't figure out why she would say that to him, but when i went to that theories website, they said it's because zombie catelyn gave her a choice - either hang, or bring me jaime lannister, so she's lying to jaime about finding sansa so that he'll follow her, and she's leading him to zombie cat who will have her revenge! sorry if you already knew this but i could not figure it out!
osha and rickon are [highlight to read spoiler] on skagos which is the cannibal island - i have no idea how they got there but i think bran or jon has a dream where rickon's wolf is gored by a unicorn, and there are unicorns on skagos, and theon greyjoy's page shows davos the onion knight on a map where they have gone. rickon is already a bit wild, poor kid i don't want him to become a cannibal as well!
yeah i wonder if ramsay's letter is real as well! you just can't tell with these books!
has anyone read 'the hedge knight' which is a story set in westeros like 100 yrs before game of thrones? i know there are a few other stories as well but haven't read them yet!

I was thinking about the Brienne-Jaime chapter yesterday and wondered this as well. >>spoiler Very few people know where or who Sansa is so how would Brienne or any of the outlaws know how to find her. Unless Bronze Yohn did recognise her but chose to keep quiet but instead sent word to via someone who knew Cat was still alive...or not quite? Something fishy there. Zombie Cat...love it! Bring me Jaime Lannister so I can eat his face off.
I have a Jon Snow boy crush but feel creepy for saying it too! But you know in Westeros, where incest and wife swapping reign supreme, whats a little cougarism?
I'm having almost as much fun reading the asoiaf site as I do GRRM's books but was in the middle of reading suspected theories on Dany yesterday and I kept getting kicked out right in the middle of a great post.
I wonder what role Rickon will play then if and when he returns?

On my phone so can't read the white bits yet Aquarius, but I just remembered Bran - awesome or what?!! Oh and Arya!
I just cannot like Sansa as much as everyone else, but yes, it is a worry that she is with Littlefinger, poor thing. I don't think Brienne has found her. I'm worried she's going to betray Jaime (I like Jaime).
Oh and I swear I beamed when Dany flew the dragon - awesome!!
I think I'm going to read it again now )

Hi ladies. Another massive fan here
I'm about 100 pages into Dance with Dragons. The one thing I noticed about these stories, is that when you think they've been killed off, they actually aren't. The only people I'm (fairly) certain are gone is Ned, Robert and Robb. I love how it keeps you guessing.
Do any of you search the net for fan art? I'm a sucker for having a glass of wine and googling this stuff. On my travels I found this map which shows the whole of Westeros, Free Cities etc in one map. It also has the names of the houses etc. I found it very helpful especially in the older books as they never had the map for Bravos etc. Hope you like it too!

I am still not through DWD yet. I am busy with kids, and barely have time to read it. Grr. So can't get to it fast enough.
I cannot wait for the rest of this series to come out. I am thinking there will be another 2 books at least. I can't fathom that he is going to wrap this up in just 1. We haven't even seen Rickon or what he is up to, and I think he will have some part to play as well. Maybe I am just hoping he will!
I am loving it all!
I picked up all of my books except the last one from Book depository UK. They were selling the first books as a boxed set, and they were not that expensive.
