Hi, found this team the other day. Love the series. Have, but not read all the books. Have met some of the cast at various conventions that I vend, & they have all been really nice to their fans. Looking forward to the next season!

Hello all! I just came across this team and am excited! I have read all of the books and am eagerly waiting on the 6th! I also watch the show regularly and am thrilled we are in the midst of the new season!

Today is another chance to get it right!

When in doubt, go workout.

Hi! I'm really excited to have found this team! I've read all the books and watched the first three seasons on DVD, but have no one with whom to discuss my favorite theories and characters. So happy to be here!

First of all, STAGPIPE - a massive congrats on finishing nursing school! I will be graduating nursing school myself exactly two weeks from today!

I finally finished Book 5 in the fall (took me forever, as while in nursing school, I only read after crawling into bed at night and can only usually get a couple of pages out before I start to nod off). I'm currently about four episodes behind the rest of the world, something that I mean to rectify soon. I'M SO BEHIND ON EVERYTHING. You mean, it's NOT 2009?!?

My name is Jessica, I've been on SP for a whike, but I just found this page today! I am obsessed with GoT! The HBO series came out when I was finishing up nursing school, so I didn't watch it then. So this past February I saw all 3 seasons onDemand, so I watched all 30 episodes in 4 days, then waited patiently for the 4th season to start. Then my friend Erin informed me that I wasn't a "real" fan unless I read the books, so I am niw on the 4th book. What an awesome story!!

HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS GROUP UNTIL NOW?!

I have read all the song of ice and fire books excepting the most recent one, but I read them about 5 years ago.

Tyrion is my favorite character, both in the books and the show. Although I loved me some Ned Stark (who can't love Sean Bean?).

Hi everyone! I'm Barbara & I just happened to find this team. I LOVE GOT & I'm looking forward to Sunday's episode. I think the last 2 episodes have been the best of the whole series.
I like a lot of the female cast, too. Arya is my favorite! I like all the STARK characters & Jon Snow.
Don't like the Lannister's; except for Tyrion & his g/f. Jamie is starting to grow on me, tho! Even Brienne is starting to like him!

WINTER IS COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone! Just stumbled across this team, and was so delighted that you guys exist that I couldn't resist signing up. I've read all the books and am following the show, too. The show's amazing in that it's one of those rare instances where I like -- and look forward to -- almost all the departures/changes from the book.

One of the things I'm most interested in is how women are represented in the show, especially when it varies from the book. How these various women, in their various roles, navigate a male-dominated society, and gain what power they can in what forms they can -- some more successfully (or likeably) than others. The show just adds this whole other dimension to it by highlighting different characters... and then complicates it, too, because of all the shameless topless scenes and whatnot. So many boobs, man.

Haha ok clearly I could go on forever. :) Looking forward to reading everyone's posts here!

Hello everyone.

NewMoon here, which has nothing to do with the "Twilight" series, but instead with what a New Moon represents...a chance to start anew. Had this name a long time before teen vampire mania swept the world, not that there's anything wrong with that if you're a fan. :)

Read Martin's books many years ago and I'm very happy with how HBO's handled bringing them to life. I think everyone needs to have some fantasy, adventure, and magic in their lives, and the world that Martin's created is extraordinary. What a wonderful escape from today's troubles (not that theirs are much better, LOL).

My favorite characters are Tyrion, Daenerys, and the Dothraki. Being a rider of horses and having some gypsy in ancestry, I found myself drawn to the Dothraki way of life.

Very much looking forward to next month.

Hello! I'm so glad to find a place on line to share my obsession with GoT. I've seen the HBO series and then started reading the books. I'm up to Dance of the Dragons, and plan to start them over when I finish that.

My weight loss goal right now is to celebrate every 5 pound loss. I'm looking forward to soon being out of the obese category. I like to work out at the rec center of the university I'm employed at. So I'm a 52 year old woman working out with 18-22 years olds, doing zumba, trx, turbokick, or spin classes. Nice thing about being in my 50s is I'm so much more self confident than I was when I was younger.

I have 3 sons: 25, 20 & 14. I also have 2 cats & a dog.

Living the life of the fit & healthy person I want to become.

Valar Morghulis! I just did a blog post about starting A Dance With Dragons....and it occurred to me, maybe there is a GoT group/team...and HERE YOU ARE!!!! MY PEOPLE!
Well I just joined spark a little over a week or 2 ago...and am still trying to get consistent with my goals....but I have been more consistent since I joined spark than I have in a long time!
SO I guess it works.
Can't wait to read through the posts here- and jump into discussion. I've already convinced about half a dozen people to either start reading this series- or at least watch the show.....this is how true my love is for both the books and show. My Game of Thrones goal is to meet and get an autograph from George R.R. Martin at comic con or dragon con or something next year.
My Spark Goal/Life goal- is to get to my healthy weight- long term- short term is to get down to 200. Shorter short term goal is to exercise consistently and keep tracking my food on spark- and stay within my calorie limits.
Ok back to work!

Hi all. I'm hoping to lose about 30 pounds. I'm actually re-joining Spark. Here's to hoping the second time is a charm and I stick with it this time!

I'm so happy to see there's a group like this on here. My boyfriend got me started on the show....he's read all the books as soon as they've come out...now I'm about 2/3 the way through A Feast for Crows. I look forward to getting to know some of you better!

Hello Team-
When I joined Spark People I did not realize there would be fun groups about books in addition to weight loss info! Love the tie in with the series and challenges etc for loosing weight, that is a super fun way to get motivated. I love love love these books. Saw Season 1 of the HBO show but don't have cable so I will have to wait a looong time to see Season 2. Looking forward to the fun on this team! PS-This is my first time posting to a message board so I hope I did it right!

Hi all! I've been a fan of the "Song and Ice and Fire" series since 2005. I pretty much got all my friends hooked by giving them my copy of "Game of Thrones". You know, the first one's free!

I haven't actually seen any of the HBO series yet. I'm interested to see what you all have to say around here.

Hi, I'm Sarah...and I'm addicted to Game of Thrones!! I was standing in Future Shop one day waiting for my husband, and was watching a documentary on what looked like a really great show...turns out it was Game of Thrones. I have now caught up completely on the show and started reading the first book this weekend. So excited to see a group here for it, and I'm looking forward to participating in the challenges. Winter is coming!!

Hi Everybody!!

My name is Jaime. I'm a guy Jaime, like Jaime Lannister, just without all the incest. I'm a 38 year-old physician in Cincinnati. I really enjoyed the first season of Game of Thrones. I went into withdrawal after it ended and quickly read all the books. Now I am enjoying the second season and anxiously awaiting the next book. Nice to meet people with similar interests!

Hello everyone- my name's Kate. How did I get into A Song of Ice and Fire? By ignoring my friends telling me to read it for five years until just last summer. Then I read all the books in a week...I didn't sleep much. I do not watch the series because I don't have HBO...maybe I'll get around to getting it eventually...I'm more interested in another book...please, sir? may we have another? lol
nice to find y'all!

Well, by golly, I'll hang out with you all for a while.

Started watching Series 1 and got hooked. Started reading the books, and reading... reading... reading... Now I'm in part 1 of the last book - that is, 'Dreams and Dust' from 'A Dance With Dragons.'

This season they've started showing the episodes concommitantly with broadcasts in the US, which I'm very pleased about, so we've been able to keep up instead of having to wait two or four or however many weeks.

I'm looking forward to leafing thru the message boards to see what people are saying, about the television series as well as the books.

Hi All!

I just searched and am sooo happy to have found this group!!! I'm Christine and I live in Arlington, TX (close to, but thankfully missed a direct hit from yesterday's tornadoes).

I'm about halfway through the 5th book of the series and will probably wear out the dvr copy of Season 2, Ep 1 soon if I don't quit watching it over and over.

Hi everyone, my name is Cathryn I’m in Northern California and obviously I love all things Game of Thrones. I have read the first four books and got Dance With Dragons last year at a signing with George RR Martin (he was fabulous by the way).

My DH and I are finally watching season 1 of the HBO show now that it is finally on DVD and enjoying it (though it’s a bit too bloody for me).

Hi all! Like many, just found the group after stumbling around SP for about a year. Upset I didn't look earlier!

I've read the books from the beginning, been following George's blog, watched season one of Game of Thrones last year, and got the fam and some coworkers hooked now!

Hi Everyone. My name is Erin, and I just found this group. So excited! I've been sharing these books with people for YEARS.. and when HBO announced it was doing the show, I was in such anticipation! Love George RR Martin for sharing his world with us. I'm currently reading A dance with Dragons and anxiously waiting for April 1st. Soo close now. Haha.

Hi,

My name is Christina-Celine, I'm from Northern Ireland and I am a massive fantasy book/movie/Tv show fan! A Song of Ice and Fire is one of my favourite series up there with Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter!

I started watching season 1, when they made the show expecting to be disappointed as I am with most book to tv show/Movie adaptations. However I was surprised and thrilled by the amount of effort that was put in to make the show.

I'm lucky enough to live in the area where most of the show was filmed, so it's nice to visit some of the places they used and talk to friends/family working on and behind the scenes of the show.

I'm looking forward to being more active on spark people and on teams to help motivate me to continue on my diet and reach my weight loss goals. I've joined the S2 challenge so I hope that goes well!

Hi, my name is Steve and I have been having hard time finding a group of people on Sparks that I click with. My wife (Lotuslife) has said great things about this team. Being a huge fan of the show (have not read the books, but Nikki tells me everything she reads) and fantasy in general I should have no problem fitting in. I joined Sparks not so much to lose weight, but to lose shape. I want to lose the gut, and grow the biceps. I hope to give and get inspiration here.

When you have done all you can do......do 1 more.

Hi, I'm Deborah. I don't know why it never occurred to me to look for a GOT team before. I have been on SP for four years and have had my ups and downs, both in terms of weight and participation. I seem to be on a good track now, but I can use all the help I can get. I am training for the Tower of Terror Ten Mile at Walt Disney World in September.

I too am obsessed with Ice and Fire. It was the HBO series that first caught my attention, but I have now read all the books. Just finished reading GOT for a second time and will read Clash of Kings again next in preparation for the second season on HBO. And, yes, I have had season one on pre-order for months now!

Hi everyone!! My name is Lisa and LOVE this series in both book and tv form!!! I finished reading A Clash of Kings in January and can't wait to see if the HBO version follows as well as the first season!!! I used to say that Lord of the Rings was my addiction and I do believe that A Song of Ice & Fire has totally become my new obsession!!!

Although I joined Spark quite awhile ago, I lost interest quickly and pretty much neglected to sign in or do anything. Last week I decided that I had to do something to get healthier... so I got back in with Spark and am starting out (slowly) by logging my foods and trying to become more conscious of what I am doing. I hope to start adding exercise to my next week.

My "Winter is Coming" and I would love to have some allies to see me thru this battle... keep me interested.... share my stuggles.... cheer my victories... and would like to offer the same thing in return!!

Hi all :)

My name is Stacy. Been around on Sparkpeople for quite awhile, but just stumbled across this group. Typically, I try to keep everything here focused on weight loss, but I just couldn't pass this up! I adore this series, have finished all the books and am eagerly awaiting the start of Season 2 of the show.

Looking forward to getting geeky with all of you! emoticon

Hi all! I just started reading the books, probably about a month ago. I have flew through them because they are just that amazing. A Dance with Dragons arrived in the mail yesterday, so I'm finally able to pound that out as well. So I will be avoiding a lot of threads on here for a while just to avoid spoilers! So, don't be too offended if I'm MIA for a little while :D

I got into the series because of the TV show, and was happy to read that the show was fairly consistent wit the book, at least more so than other tv shows and movies are to their book counterparts.

Outside of the ASOIAF life, I am a 1st year teacher, teaching 5th grade orchestra, and I love it so far. I have a black cat who I, in a way, consider my child, and love her to pieces. I also love Harry Potter and spend way too much time on the internet.

I can't wait to get to know all of you!

hello all! I read the first 4 books probably 2 years ago...waiting to get my hands on the newest one. I dont have HBO, so I have to wait for the show to come out on netflix...sighhh.

Just read a novella by GRR Martin about the Hedge Knight, and it reminded me why I liked the books so much.

Hello everyone! As you can tell from my Handle, I'm a big fan! I've read all the books, watched all the episodes, and participated in MULTIPLE discussion threads on differing theories about the many characters in the series. My wife created this account for me and decided it would be funny to name me MaesterSteve...so here I am. But, I'm having fun so far!

Welcome, Euphrates! I hope you enjoy the series. Personally, I am still finishing Dance with Dragons (should have enough time to finish this week) and cannot wait for season 2 to begin on HBO.

Let us know your thoughts as you progress through the books / show.

I go to Cincinnati for the zoo or concerts sometimes :) nice to have someone so close on board.

A Song of Ice and Fire has totally taken over our household! My mate is digging through book 5 right now (which he bought in hardback, which he NEVER does, but he just couldn't wait), and I finished book 2 yesterday - SO glad I start vacation after I get off work today, so I can dive into book 3 and get some serious reading time in!! Finding time between 12 hour work schedules and various obligations on my days off has been driving me NUTS!

We watched the first episode of Game of Thrones on HBO on demand last weekend, and we were pretty impressed (it was seeing scenes for the show that got my mate's attention so he started the first book). We waited until I'd finished the first book, so it wouldn't spoil anything for me. ;) Hoping to get some time to watch the rest of the season while I'm off as well!

Nice to meet everyone!

I have been a sparker for a couple of years, but just found this team this morning. I usually read historic fiction and am not much of a fantasy reader, but saw the advertisement for the HBO series and thought that I might like reading the books. I am almost at the end of book 2 and am really enjoying this series. Nothing better than a big fat wonderful book to read. I have not seen the series yet since we don't get HBO, but will watch it on netflix one of these days.

My 22 year old daughter and I are both reading the books. She is a book ahead of me, however.

Hello all! I just signed back up for SP, and I'm so pleased to have found a group that shares an interest of mine. Like many others, I first discovered ASOIAF through the Game of Thrones series on HBO, and my husband and I were immediately hooked. We've been reading it through ebooks and audiobooks, and I love getting lost in the Seven Kindoms. The audiobooks are quite costly, so I'm using them as a reward for myself as I reach my goals. I look forward to getting to know you all!

I'm a big fan of the books and do admit to enjoying the series on HBO. I was pleasantly surprised with how true to the story HBO stayed. I also enjoy the HBO interpretation of True Blood, so I was pretty psyched for GoT.

I enjoy reading most sci-fi and fantasy and tend to stay pretty true to the epics I know and love. SoIaF is one of those epic series I just can't give up on. Though I do wish I had re-read the series prior to Dance with Dragons...

Greetings to you all. I have become an avid follower of GOTs books. I first heard about the books when i saw a free HBO preview of the first episode. I was hooked when i saw the poor boy get pushed out the window. Since we cant afford both HBO and STARZ STARZ won out for TORCHWOOD and i bought the first four books of GOT for my ereader. Ive just started the second book.

Welcome MAILMANVIC! if you look in each episode (espeicailly the first few) on this forum, there are links to streaming sites with the HBO show. I do recommend buying the dvds when they are available though, as I plan to do also!

Hi, I'm a big fan of asoiaf. I haven't had a chance to see the show yet. HBO is pretty good about getting to show removed from sites that stream it. I guess I'll have to wait until it comes out on dvd. By far the best science fiction book ever written. Hopefully it will be finished soon.

Welcome Rhonda!

yea I will still be posting some GoT related news and discussions (casting decisions for season 2, awards, Dance with Dragons reviews etc) but it might be a little slower around here until next Spring ;)

I am going to have some big contests (as soon as we get enough active members) so be sure to stick around for that.

Just wanted to say hi. I joined Spark a few days ago and am checking out the different facets of the site and saw this group.

I have been reading the books, currently a little over halfway through the second. I have also been following the HBO series and I like how faithful it has stayed to the book, in some cases the dialog was almost word for word. Of course some things had to be changed for television, for example Daenerys is not 14 like she is in the book, but the major plot points are still the same.

Hi all!
This team surprised me, I only use this site for weight related purposes, but I'm happy I found it :)

I have read all books, and I have watched 4 episodes of the TV show. The first book is my favourite, and I enjoyed it very much!

I am from Spain, so my English is not as good as it should, sorry. And I usually wait for the episodes to have the spanish subtitles before I download and watch them, so I go a bit behind watching them.

I'll go now to see what you said about the episodes in the HBO section :)

Hi Shala. Yeah, I thought the first episode was really well done, but for some reason the actor playing Jon Snow bugs me. Maybe I will like him better when he matures as a character, I don't know... anyway thanks for joining and feel free to comment on each episode in the HBO section -- I need more people to chitchat about it with haha

Hi all,
Just want to introduce myself. I'm Shala and just now starting my weight loss journey. I am a book fiend, and I have to say that this series is one of my favorites! I've read all the books that are out, and I can't wait for A Dance with Dragons! Did you guys watch the premiere of the series? I was very pleased. I thought they did an excellent job. I might have changed a couple of the actors they chose, but over all I thought it was great!

Jane--Welcome! Glad you found us and the series. The Song is many things, but it is not stale. I hope you enjoy it :) I've begun re-reading it myself, so we can have some spoiler-free book chat if you ever wish to.

I am so happy to see this team! Today I heard about the series and went to Amazon to check into the books and ordered the first book. I read a few pages online and hit "order" immediately. -- hoping it gets here before the series starts.

I don't know how I missed reading this series thus far but I am excited to get going on a new reading experience that sounds like it has some zip to it. I usually read post-apocalyptic and dystopian sci-fi but the genre is getting stale, so a big fantasy romp is overdue for this reader.

So I am following along, a little late but hopefully a part of the team as we go along toward the series.

At the moment it is approved for one 10 episode season, but with all the hype surrounding it, it should surely get another season after that. I'm assuming (hoping) GRRM will be able to finish the series before the TV series catches up... I guess it all depends on how quickly they move through each book and how often the seasons come out (once a year, twice a year, etc).

My only fear is that George R.R. Martin will be too busy overseeing the production to work on the next two books!

Everything Kathy said is also true of me. Except that I am a real addict - after I read the first book I bought them all in hardcover as soon as they came out (normally I use library or second-hand for my books).

I have a daughter who is as hooked on the series as I am --maybe more so. However she is studying in Africa till next December and her internet is way too expensive for streaming anything. So I don't know if I can hold out till she gets home and maybe by then we can buy it on DVD, or if I will give in and try one of the sneaky ways of viewing.

How can they possibly make a miniseries when no one yet knows how the story ends -- presumably not even the author? And how long is it scheduled to run?

I will have to see if my son approves. He slaps my hands if I drag my computer to places he has not put his blessing on. Since he fixes said computer, he will cut off my repairs and upgrades if I don't behave. I think he is getting even for the rules I gave him in his youth. Will try to get daughter in law hooked and then she will protect me. :0)

Welcome KattyKathy. Nice to have you. You can always try torrenting each episode as they come out (it is illegal, technically, but no one ever gets sued for it... unless you torrent about 500gb of movies a day). I plan on getting my fix of ice and fire through thepiratebay.org about 1.5 hours after each episode airs ;). Color me swashbuckle-y.

Major underling reporting in. Have ear read (audio) first two books of the series. Watching all the ads and spoiler of the tv show, but since I am a old trollish night creature (employed nights) and without cable will have to await internet availability or dvds to see. Wah. Will enjoy hear what everyone else says about it. If you don't see me, don't be surprised. I lurked in the dark corners and hide from the powers that be that might injure me. Beside the fact that I am old and tired and time deprived. :0)

Greetings, underlings!

I am your benevolent overlord, Jamie (Yes, that is my real name. Yes, I wish it were spelled differently). I look forward to this team's growth and hope that we get enough minions to start running some challenges. I refuse to believe that I am the only SoIaF fan on SparkPeople...

t minus 7 days 'til the HBO series begins.
I will be sitting in my iron throne, glued to the TV.
