GRRM recently did a reading from The World of Ice and Fire, where he gave an extremely detailed account of Aegon's conquest of Westeros...

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

my GOT stalking continues. I was going home today along Belfast's Dublin Road, when I saw Jerome Flynn walking along, looking very Bronn-esque. I shouted 'Hey, Bronn, great show' at him and he looked blankly, then seemed to realise that I meant him and waved back.

I'm kinda surprised he's in Belfast, I would've thought that his role this season would have been small and would at any rate have been filmed in Malta (ie King's Landing).

King's Landing hasn't been shot in Malta since season one. It's in Croatia now. And only certain exteriors for the city are done there; many King's Landing interiors are done on the sets in Belfast.

There's not a lot of Bronn in the first half or so of A Storm of Swords, unless they're playing up the Symon Silvertongue thing (which I tend to doubt we'll see at all), but he's the sort of character the producers seem fond of, so I'm sure they've found something for him to do.

The writers aren't afraid to expand minor characters' screen time (Robb being the best example I can think of), and Bronn seems to be a favorite with both the fans and the writers, so it wouldn't surprise me if they gave him more to do.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

In non-me-stalking news, HBO has released a behind the scenes pic from S3 with mildly spoilerish blurb (you can't actually say for sure who is in the pic, so spoilerism is limited):

There's minor and there's minor.

Robb Stark is one of those characters who is enormously important to the plot of the novels he just doesn't get as much 'screentime' as the other non-Rickon Starks.

The same can be said of many characters who have had notably expanded roles, like Jaime Lannister and Margaery Tyrell. They're major players in the game of thrones, and thus matter in the big picture in ways that say Ser Dontos or Hot Pie did not.

That said? Bronn's worked excellently as a foil for Tyrion, being written into scenes he's not in in the books and also some of those brand new scenes, so I wouldn't be surprised if he's leaned on in that role next season.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Okay, I'm about 90% sure that as I drove my daughter to swimming this morning, I passed Peter Dinklage out for a walk with his wife and child on Belfast's Malone Road. I was more or less level with them when I realised that the male in the group was a dwarf and not a boy and a split-second later, I realised that it was him. Hopefully they do this walk every week, maybe next week I'll be able to say hello!

I bought and downloaded A Clash of Kings onto my Nook yesterday. I'll probably start it next, once I get closer to the end of The Last Days of Krypton.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Out of chance, does anyone have a link to the Victarion, Arianne, and/or Tyrion chapters that GRRM read out loud at the various cons? (Printed versions, not video. Sorry, GRRM!)

I have the Theon one already -- need a quick WOW fix, basically.

Cheers,

I don't think there are printed versions of the Arianne and Tyrion chapters or of the full Victarion chapter, only summaries from people who were at the events where they were read. At most events, Martin specifically asks that no one record or transcribe his reading. There's a partial transcript of the Victarion chapter, though, that someone made based on the TIFF video: link.

I figured it was probably either Ashara Dayne or unimportant when reading the first four novels. I heard about R + L = J online thereafter.

I figured it out halfway through the first book.

On the other hand, I missed Arstan, Alleras, and several other more obvious things.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I missed the whole rat cook and Frey pie bit from the marriage of Faux Arya (J Poole) and Ramsay Bolton.

I also never thought about the Alleras and Sand Snake connection. I saw it online and it was a forehead smack moment. I was too busy trying to tell if the Alchemist was Jaquen, and when Sam arrived at the Citadel, I was just too worried about him to pay much mind to anyone else.

I am re-reading the books now and so many little character bits that I missed on the first reading are jumping out at me now.

I went on to the Forum of Ice and Fire. Their theories are great.
