#ASOIAFREADALONG – A Game of Thrones

THIS POST CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE GAME OF THRONES BOOK SERIES YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

There’s a A Song Of Ice And Fire readalong happening on Tumblr right now and I used that as leverage to actually get around to reading them because eventually I was going to, but wasn’t sure when that actually was going to be. probably a couple years out, I’d wager. Considering I have a TBR pile that grows by the day.

– y’know I thought all the choice of “colorful” language was just a “HAHA, we’re on HBO so we can freely say tits, cock, etc.” BUT IT’S ACTUALLY IN THE BOOK???? #mindblown

– Cat mentioned Cersei and i squealed, and then i squealed when she was actually talking later on.

– oh yeah, fuck Viserys. i’d forgotten about that asshole.

– “Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” – Tyrion Lannister

– Bran’s seven in the book when Jaime asks him before pushing him out the tower, but ten on the show? WHY CHANGE THAT???

– Tyrion slapping Joffery never gets old, even in bookverse. *slap* “I’M TELLING MOTHER.” *slap*

– How different would it have been if Jon told Robb the truth about his treatment from Cat? #curiousmind

– “Stick ‘em with the pointy end!”

– NEEDLE.

– is it time for Viserys to die in a fire yet, like…literally?

Haven’t shared any of the B&W illustrations yet as they’re hard to capture with icky bedroom lighting but here’s a pretty color one of Dany, one of her future babies and Drogo. 😀

-Sansa’s all mwee mwee mwee i’m in love with Joffery. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP THAT NOW.

– Poor Lady…and poor Mycah. THE DEATHS BEGIN. [was there any before this? crap, I forget…and I made no note of it either.]

Jon kicking ass and taking names in the Night’s Watch is the best thing ever

– Besides Cersei, Tyrion’s my other favorite Lannister. I have yet to meet someone who didn’t like him though

– Joffery’s not dying yet, it’s just a damn bite. RELAX.

– “Would the lord and lady like the use of a bedchamber? I should warn you Stark, we usually charge for that sort of thing around here.” *snortgiggle*

– SAAAAAAAAAAM!!! I love him so much, he’s delightfully awkward and afraid of everything like I am.

– ….they’re EATING TYRION’S HORSE???????? like i saw that scene in the show and had like zero idea what they were doing i could swear it was a frickin’ cow or something holy shit

– i should hang out in The Red Keep soley for the fact that IT’S FULL OF CATS. CATS EVERYWHERE. is this how we get Ser Pounce?!!!

– calling Dany a pregnant whore? DUDE, WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU? THAT’S NOT VERY NICE, ROBERT. [although, i admit them all shitting themselves if she has a boy is hilarious to read. it’s like a gaggle of headless chickens running round their yard.]

the bedsheets are in the wash, so i’m reading at the desk this morning!


– WHEN IS VISERYS GOING TO DIE IN A HOLE???? I WANT TO BEAT HIM WITH THIS BOOK. JFC.

– “…my sun-and-stars…” UGH THAT IS SO FUCKING CUTE I CAN’T EVEN.

-WE MET OSHA. EEEEEEEE! [her actress played Tonks in the Harry Potter movies, whom i also loved.]

“You fucking son of a pox-ridden ass!” – i have a new insult

“I want to be his queen and have his babies!!” *facebook* Sansa, NO.

-Sansa, that wasn’t nice to say about Hodor. D:< you go apologize to him right now!

– “Your brother? or your lover?” and Cersei is just like, “BOTH.” without even denying it, and not even denying that all three kids are Jaime’s. [STILL CANNOT STAND JOFFERY.]

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”

– Dany eating the horse heart on the show skeeved me out and reading about it is skeeving me out. yuck.

– “Moon of my life.” *fucking squeals*

– VISERYS IS DEAD. THANK FUCKING GOG.

– Dany and Drogo at it again. Killing me with how frickin’ cute they are.

– Cat reuniting with Robb was so sweet, omg. ;____;

– Mirri’s here…..DROGO GUNNA DIE SOON.  [from a goddamn papercut no less.]

– TYRION AND SHAE. UGH I FORGOT ABOUT THEM AND HOW ADORABLE THEY WERE. [Despite killing everybody I love, Martin does give cute af ships.]

– Is Tyrion having this entire conversation with Bronn naked? ‘cos that is just amusing me greatly.

– PODRICK! Doesn’t he work with Brienne later? [Don’t tell me, I’ll find out on my own.] and she basically gives him a bunch of hell ‘cos I’M NOT A KNIGHT.

– aaaaand Ned is dead

– Sansa’s finally coming to her senses, Good girl, you don’t want to marry that asshole

– Drogo’s now dead too

-and look who joins the asshole brigade: Tywin.

– Did i mention i love Sam? cos i do. he’s super adorable.

– IF SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED TO GHOST I STG…..

– OH THANK GOD HE’S FINE

Dany and her babies!

[but why put this before a Cat chapter o_O]

THE FIRST BOOK WAS REALLY REALLY GREAT AND I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN AND AND AND AND….*intelligible noises* I honestly had to force myself to put it down otherwise i would have sat there all day and read the whole thing in one sitting.
