...and then The Bro goes: You know, I'm getting the vibe that you may be disappointed in this show because of all the hype you're subscribing to.

Dudes, I really hate him sometimes.

Oh my gosh I'm so, so excited too. Too excited maybe, but I don't care I can't wait.

I'm going to start my preparatory re-read soon. Have you finished up to A Feast of Crows yet? I thought you had but I don't want to start talking and spoil something :D Have you read any of the Dunk and Egg stories?

Oh, yeah I finished reading them ages ago... um, but didn't do a post? I'm not sure... life's been crazy. Erm, Dunk & Egg is The Hedge Knight, right? I've read only that one... not the novella thing, it's hard to track down here.

Dunk and Egg are the short stories set about 100 years before the main novels. The Hedge Knight is the first one and then there are 2 others, I haven't read the newest one yet. I like them a lot and it's good to have something new to read while waiting for the books :D I only have them because I managed to get the Legends short stories collections.

I figured that you had finished them especially when you posted the fanmixes and things.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Hedge Knight so I shall be on the look out to see if that collection ever comes into the store.

Why exactly does it take so long?! I kinda wanna yell at GRRM to hunker down and WRITE because it seems like he's all over the place with all these other projects and we're left suffering for new material. *sigh* Life of a fangirl, I suppose. ...I need new Lena/Cersei icons.

Oh man I don't mind the wait so much mainly because I've been waiting over 10 years for the final book in a YA series I was obessed with as a teen and I'm at the stage now that I don't believe it will ever be published. And judging from certain things the author has been saying and posting I'm not sure I even want it at this stage because I know what she's writing now is not the book she would have written 10 years ago and it's not the book I want to read. (It's got all these new ideas and things that would be better off in a new series)

At least with GRRM I feel like the books will come and when it does it will be good. I was really lucky with Feast of Crows though, it was only about 6-8 months after I'd finished the series when it came out so it wasn't super long.

Ack! Late reply is late. Wow, that's a long time to wait for something. You, my dear are one dedicated fan. Stringing along your fans for that long however, not cool, especially if you're completely overhauling your story/plot/character etc. Yikes I don't think I could stand the torture.

I came into the game late where, fortunately, all four had been out for a while and easily accessible. And now we wait. I'm hoping that the response to the show serves as encouragement/impetus for him to make some significant progress. *crosses fingers*

I'm actually starting to get really excited for this as well.

There is so much going on for me in fandom right now I don't know what to do with myself!
