1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I had no idea that A Dance with Dragons is coming out this Tuesday.

    I was pretty close to finishing A Feast for Crows but I dunno, I guess I just lost interest and stopped (and the library was constantly pestering me).

    I will go back to the library and pick it up and finish Feast for Crows!

    The new book is going to have characters that I actually give a shit about, so that's something to look forward to.

    Since he was splitting the books is Arya going to be in the new one at all? She's actually the only Stark that I enjoy reading about.

    Characters are supposed to be:
    Daenerys Targaryen
    Jon Snow
    Tyrion Lannister
    Davos Seaworth
    Bran Stark
    Arya Stark
    Asha Greyjoy, aka 'The Wayward Bride'
    Theon Greyjoy, aka 'Reek'
    Victarion Greyjoy
    Quentyn Martell, aka 'The Merchant's Man'
    Areo Hotah
    Barristan Selmy
    Melisandre of Asshai
    Cersei Lannister
    Jaime Lannister

    So...pretty much all the awesome characters.

    that's pretty much everyone who hasn't been killed yet.

    "Reek" was Roose Bolton's bastard son's (Ramsay Snow, now Ramsay Bolton) pet creature. Ramsay dressed Reek up in his clothing as they were being chased (by Karstarks) I believe, and Ramsay was captured and pretended to be Reek.

    He revealed himself after sacking Winterfell and killing an army of fellow Northmen, and he kept Theon prisoner and tortured him, and told people that he was Reek (and everyone assumes Theon is dead).

    I completely forgot about that. Thanks for the reminder. I think I'm lost in a haze of book 4 shittiness.

    I love these books. I just hope the fucker doesn't up and die on us like Jim Rigney did.
    I'm still pissed off about that one.
    21 years and counting to finish that series.

    Man the red wedding was heart breaking.

    One of the reasons I like the series so much is for the lack of warning. It makes it that much more shocking.

    A certain someone being abruptly thrown out the moon definitely was shocking.
