    When I was reading "A Game of Thrones" I couldn't put it down, literally. Even walking out of work for a smoke break, I was walking with the book in my hand, reading. Sometimes people still comment that "I'm the girl who's always got a book in her hand" when they see me.

    After the "red wedding", I called Petyr nearly in hysterics with tears saying "I hate George Martin! I hate him, I hate him, I hate him!!!!". Remember though, that I was also thinking the Hound had killed Arya, so I was doubly upset.

    Looking back on it now, I have to laugh at myself for how upset I got, but then I think that is just a testament to Martin's prowess at writing, that he can invoke so much emotion.

    Don't think of it as embarrassing - it's a sign that you are truly one of us. ;) :D

    Yeah i had a similar reaction, i think it was a post somewhere here. just hating.


    but youve gotta give the guy some credit, it pulled off a nice dramatic climax and didnt detract too much from the story as a whole. the guy DID kill ned before, he had to top it somehow.


    thinking of that hows he going to top it next? getting the horn of winter blown, and all our friends on the watch crushed beneith a thousand tonnes of ice?

    That he is. Im new to the ASoIaF series and man I'm hooked! Most embarrassing time for me was when I was talking to my friend about Full Metal Alchemist (also of which I am a fan of) and I kept referring to Edward Elric as Eddard Elric =/

    Even worse I called my cat by the wrong name of Greywind instead of Molly. I think I need to join Therapy with you guys...

    Exactly!

    And I don't need therapy. I'm the last person to need it. ;)

    Would that be wolf? I've wanted a wolf since long before I started ASoIaF. But then I'm just wierd like that. . .

    I can't say I've had any embarrasing moments with this series, yet. I know it'll happen soon enough, though, it always gets to that point.

    Lol, I thought I was the only one who wanted a wolf as a pet. It started with White Fang when I young, and got worse with The Farseer and ASOIAF series. I'm not alone! :p

    I'd settle for a Husky, if I could. :)

    Yeah... I'd love to have a wolf as a pet. :p It started when I read "Julie of the Wolves" for elementary school, and I went on to read the sequels. I got crazy about wolves, and now I have a bunch of wolf-related stuff in my room. :p I'm afraid that it only got worse after White Fang, and then FarSeer/ASoIaF, like Ny. :p

    Now, of course, I realize that even hybrid wolves are incredibly destructive, etc. One dog-puppy is bad enough, thanks. :p I'm sticking to dogs for actual pets.
