Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

MARK YOUR FUCKING SPOILERS.

george_r._r._martin_-_a_dance_with_dragons_-_us.jpg

so this is out tomorrow for some of us and the day after tomorrrow for others, and it's been decided (and mod-approved!) that we should have a seperate place to talk about it

there's going to be some rules here, so read carefully

THREAD SPOILER RULES

ANY SPOILERS FROM A GAME OF THRONES UP TO A FEAST FOR CROWS DO NOT REQUIRE MARKING

if you are in this thread, you're here exclusively for full-series discussion. any TV show fans or people reading the series should get out now, you will be spoiled otherwise.

Dance With Dragons will still require spoilers in this thread

MARK YOUR SPOILERS, AND SPOIL YOUR CHAPTERS

for added security and to prevent impulse clicking, we're going to do a bit of a complex system. please mention which chapter you are talking about. if you're unsure of an exact number, say a fraction, or a page number.

e: fine, you doofs, no nested spoilers
example:


TYRION CHAPTER 2

or

TYRION, ABOUT A QUARTER THROUGH

or

TYRION, pg 255
TYRION WAS A GHOST THE WHOLE TIME!

please try and follow these rules, guys


also, here is the place to submit your DANCE WITH DRAGONS DEATH POOL!

we all know that George R. R. Martin is the Jack the Ripper of literature, so let's figure out who he's gonna kill! simply make a list of your predicted deaths, spoil it, and title it like so:

YaYa's Death Pool
blah dead people blah

when you get to the end of the book, talk about how well you did!


have fun, guys, and please follow the rules

    Death pool, eh?. I'd have to think.

    I think the double spoilers is a bit of overkill, but if that's what the people want

    I did the same thing for 8/9 on your list. But it is set!

    In other news I am reading A Feast for Crows but I probably won't finish it before Tuesday.

    It feels like a lot of the big events have already happened but I'm only halfway through.

    1)Areo Hotah surprising Arys Oakheart & Co. on the Greenblood.
    2)Brienne fighting off some of the remaining Bloody Mummers
    3)Euron being declared King of the Ironmen

    My brain just remembers these happening more towards the end I guess. Still plenty to come now that I think about it.

    Both. He had some ridiculous idea of what Jon Snow's parentage could be but it was so bad that I sort of blocked it out of my head.

    Though he recently stopped by my desk to complain about Catelyn since he has just started book three. I had to laugh when he said "I just hope she dies. She bugs me."

    Ser Jorah
    I'm not expecting that one until there is some sort of
    mad dash for a revenge kill/heroic redemption on his part..
    which I don't see happening until one more book.

    Unless it's a cliffhanger deal.

    I'm kinda sad that we won't be getting much (or any) of Littlefinger's Scheming School (Which I imagine is going to be an Open University course at some point in the future). Still..more of the other dwarf with the hideous facial scar should make up for it though.

    My guess if he doesn't die, Jorah will become the new commander of the nights watch and it somehow frees up Jon to march with Dany to basically fucking own everything in Westeros.

    Then he'll be king and marry his...well, aunt right.

    So you're saying he's kind of like a combination of Obi-Wan and Anakin, if Anakin hadn't gone off the deep end in 3 and instead sent himself into exile as penance after, e.g., killing Mace Windu?
