Did Garlan win? Also, what is "r/asoiaf?" I honestly have no idea what you are talking about.
It's a subreddit over on Reddit. The Hound won, actually. Here's the final bracket:
How it worked was that posters would submit short stories that pitted these characters against each other in a duel to the death. The community would vote on which story was the best, and whichever character won in that story got to move on to the next round. Here's a link to the hub, which has links to all of the matches: http://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comments/yhrgv/2012_asoiaf_tournament_central_hub/
What? Lame. Who decided that a common thug and murderer could defeat Garlan the Gallant?
Top post is the one where Sandor won, and it was the one that won the tournament. Personally I was hoping for Jaime vs. Brienne, but the Hound pulled a surprise victory over Goldenhand.
Got The Lands of Ice and Fire; completely awesome! The King's Landing map is my favourite , for sure.
I like the one with the Free Cities; mostly because the tiny little map pictures of them vaguely resemble what the cities are meant to look like, and help me try and visualize what they really ought to look like. The Braavos map is pretty amazing, and gets my imagination watering (if I may mix metaphors) over what Volantis would look like if visualized like that.
A new sample from TWoW! You're welcome.
Edit: and there's the waiting again.
Arianne! She's definitely becoming more interesting since her father put her in her place.
Also, it looks like we know what happened to Aurane Waters when he sailed off with Cersei's fleet
Well, to be fair, that's exactly what he said he would do.
Hehe, Lord Waters. Also, I was wrong on #eu last night- this is a wholly new chapter, completely different from the Arianne chapter that Martin has read at conventions.
Also, love how it foreshadows that Dany and Aegon are going to war against each other.
I haven't read the excerpt, and I don't think I'm going to do that, I don't mind finding out spoilers about the released chapters though. So far none of the chapters have been about characters I really care about though, and I'm a bit worried that Arianne is getting a lot of pages, since I personally think that Dorne is pretty boring, if they lead to Dany finally reaching Westeros then I would be happy though.
Spoiler: About the TWOW Excerpt
Yeah, sometimes Arianne drags. The good news is that with Arianne's first chapter, she's leaving Dorne, and with her second chapter (the one that Martin read aloud at a convention), she's already meeting with the Golden Company and Storm's End has just fallen. So by her third chapter she should be chatting with the newest Blackfyre pretender himself. Also, apparently there's been sightings of (non-metaphorical for Greyjoys) Krakens off of the stepstones, which is sweet.
I don't like reading excerpts because I become too excited for what's going on and then have to wait too long to find out.
Obi Anne, I find Dorne boring too. And because of that, my mind has wandered with those chapters. I forgot who Arianne was.
i've got my ice i've got my fire!
i have that which i desire!
of my love i will ne'er tire!
till he burns on a fun'ral pyre!
wait, what is this about in here?
First season 3 photos, including first glimpses of the Reeds and the revelation of Talisa's last name (which most of us probably guessed already).
Blackfish looks awesome! But no pics of Edmure? I know we saw him in the video preview for this season, when he's firing the flaming arrow at Hoster'sfuneral boat, but it would be nice to see a close up.
He probably screwed up his closeup, like everything else he does.
Hey, his surrender of Riverrun (allowing the Blackfish and possibly Jeyne to escape) was pretty brilliant.
And if that idiot Robb had actually told him his plan then it would've worked brilliantly. 'Oh sorry I smashed your enemies too hard'.
but man, what character isn't some sort of tragic dumbass?
god jojen is jacked-up scary lookin
That actor always is. I don't remember what else I've seen him in, but he's memorable.
I've only seen him in Love Actually, and there he's definitely not scary.
I'm finishing up book 2. Can't wait to start on book three! I read some spoilers on Wikipedia which I regret. Can't wait to see what happens next!
oh ****, he was that cute little kid? damn he got ugly
