    I can't remember but has the show introduced Jojen and Meera yet?

    It's an interesting plot line w/ Bran but I don't recall it being introduced in any of the episodes so far?

    Also, HBO has taken some liberties with Renly's character it seems. I think the book slightly hinted at his 'preferences' but the show definitely addresses it in a much 'absolute' way. (Unless the book goes into this in more detail at a later time?)
    No Jojen/Meera and even the Walders are conspicuously absent so far. Ok, so you drew me back into this thread. Is my memory so bad...I do not remember the dragons being kidnapped in the books. That's new right? Also...I am so glad they cast who they did as Davos. From his first appearance in the books the Onion Knight struck me as someone very important. It would seem he has a lot more story to tell.

    Aw Crap. Just finished Dance of Dragons. Could it have been any more Empire Strikes Back with it's cliffhanger ending. Jayzus. I tell you what...Mellisandre better have some red magic cooked up for Jon Snow or I will find GRR Martin and kick him in the sack. Just so good, the best book in the bunch as far as the scope and all the goings on. The return of the spider which I was patiently waiting. So many great moments. Poor Penny/Pretty Pig/Crunch. So sad. Never thought to see Tyrion brought to such heights/depths and the folks who only watch the show have no idea what is coming. This is going to be almost impossible to translate to tv.

    George R.R. Martin reveals which Thrones storyline he's 'dreading' | Blastr

    I put this here instead of the show thread due to the MAJOR SPOILERS. The fact that there is even discussion that HBO is thinking of altering the Red Wedding is preposterous.

    HUGE STORM OF SWORDS SPOILER!!!!
    (you've been warned)

    Damn man, they better not alter how the Red Wedding goes down. That event gutted me as I read it, I loved the Starks the most on my first read through of the books and that event saddened/enraged/intrigued me. I can think of no other reading event like that in my life, seriously. It would seem cheap and stupid to lessen the impact of the Red Wedding. ****, they closed season two on HBO with 'The Rains of Castamere' playing and I instantly got goosebumps. Looks like it will likely end up in Season 4. . . but I'll be looking forward to it.

    Also, while I'm here let's speculate on what becomes of young (dead?) Lord Snow.
    A few guesses from me.
    ** He becomes 'black-handed' like Benjen.
    ** He rises back up from the power of the Lord of Light (Think Lord Beric here)
    ** He really is dead and the Starks are really ****ing cursed. With only Bran left standing when the series finally wraps. (Arya dies during the assassination of the last Lannister, Rickon resurfaces as a wildman chief near the Eyrie and is killed fighting the returning Targaryen army, Sansa dies when someone tells her eating poison is a good idea and she believes them wholeheartedly)

    I just finished Feast for Crows. Found it a little slow, (though the ending has me hooked), as it was missing some of my favourite characters. I did find interesting the gradual evolution of Jamie Lannister and the changing of his perception and attitude towards Cerci .

    Have Dance of Dragons on order. Looking forward 2 some more Snow, Spider and the Imp!

    Worried the Thrones novels may be too brutal for you? Watch this! | Blastr



    Part of what makes George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, and HBO's Game of Thrones series based on them, so great is the fact that these characters are often in real peril. But that can also drive fans nuts—and this hilarious clip pokes fun at that fact.

    Not to get into any spoilers here, but Martin is famous for taking risky chances and killing off characters with reckless abandon.

    But in case all that uncertainty is scaring you away from the franchise, the comedy team at The Second City Network has a message for you: It Gets Better.

    Well, kind of.

    Okay, not really.

    The video is a spoof on the commercials for the It Gets Better Project, and is packed with spoilers for much of the series. So watch at your own risk if you're not caught up on your Thrones lore.

    I just finished A Dance with Dragons...wow. I'll comment more tomorrow morning. but i just want say that my opinion on what is to become of of Lord Snow is one of two scenarios, both involving the Red Woman... I'm thinking either Victarian or Mance. More on this tomorrow

    I think so. Nothing was ever confirmed regarding him, and the descriptions in the book lead me to believe it is Benjen.

    Also, i was but disappointed with how Bran's was left lingering midway through the book. Am i the only one thinking that it was Bran who was whispering Reek's name in the godswood?
