leasspell_dael: Escaflowne's Hitomi with feather (Default)
I've been putting off re-reading the Song of Ice and Fire series, because it's dense and I've been busy. Of course, everyone is talking about it these days, since the HBO series of Game of Thrones came out, and my mother has been pushing me to re-read/watch the series because it's renewed her own interest, and she wants someone to talk to about it. Can't blame her there, I've been in that position myself.

I think she's finally convinced me though.

I was visiting her this afternoon, and she finally got me to watch the opening, which I confess looks fantastic. This lead to a brief discussion, and I casually put forth a theory I've held about Jon Snow since I originally read the first book. It's something I had thought was "obvious", but completely side-swiped her, and lead to a light debate. Of course, it's been years since I've read the books, so I didn't have my handy details to back the theory up. Now I'm going to wind up re-read the series, just to get my argument together. XD

Spoilers, except not really, behind the cut. Does it count as a spoiler when it's only a theory that may not be correct? )

There goes the rest of my summer. I'll try to resist, but it's going to be hard. And once I start, I won't stop, especially since I have the new book sitting tantalizingly on my coffee table.
