    All here like (or love, if that's your preference) ASOIAF. But when we start to associate things in our normal lives (or as normal as it gets for the likes 'o us) you know your obsessed.

    You know you're obsessed with ASOIAF when......

    You meet someone called Jamie (Jaime) and immediately squint your eyes in suspicion and mutter "Kingslayer".

    When you suddenly get a chill you think "Others".

    Call out "Corn" when you see a murder of crows.

    You see a Huskey and wonder if its Summer or Grey wind.

    Your old doctor could actually be Aemon.

    Look for Arbour Gold at your local Wine store.

    When you see a redheaded girl whisper "Kissed by fire".

    At the same time seeing that redheaded girl you are secretly annoyed by her because she reminds you of Ygritte.

    At the end of summer (I live in Australia) are glad the seasons dont last years.

    When making a judgement call you think "What would Ned do?"

    Wish you had a cool nickname like "The Red Viper" or "Sword of the Morning".


    Anyone else have these????

    There's one for the obsessed Tolkien fan as well:

    • Your AOL screen name is Elbereth.
    • You can pronounce Nirnaeth Arnoediad.
    • The opponents in your MS Hearts game are named Morgoth, Sauron and Ungoliant.
    • You have a decided opinion on the question of the two Glorfindels.
    • You understand #4.
    • Your thesis was entitled "On the Valar and their Treament of the Noldor"
    • When watching The Two Towers, you must fight the urge to scream, "THERE WERE NO ELVES, NEITHER FROM IMLADRIS NOR LÓRIEN, IN THE BATTLE OF THE HORNBURG!
    • But you mourn Haldir anyway.
    • It's not "hello", it's "Hail and well met."
    • You know the difference between Sindarin and Quenya.
    • You use Shire reckoning.
    • You can recite the names of all the Kings (and the four Ruling Queens) of Númenor.
    • You think Ar-Pharazon was a louse.
    • Your twin sons are named Elladan and Elrohir.
    • Your baseball bat had a name, too: Narsil. And when it broke and had to be taped up, you re-named it Anduril.

    and the rest:

    Careful, Pyan, I may have to infract you for thread derailment. Please post on topic from here on in - we don't want any talk of your lesser authors besmirching our Martin forum.

    Yeah. This was sort of a Martin thing. Not a Tolkien thing.

    When you don't attend weddings for fear they will be 'Red'.

    ...

    Okay that's one of the silliest things I've ever written.

    My apologies - I thought it was a general obsession thread, from the title - I didn't notice it was it what's-his-name..oh yes, the Martin thread.


    Hah! When GRRM's sold as many books...

    And he's even nicked JRRT's middle initials...:p

    You search wedding guests for crossbows.

    You have an unhealthy fear of lions.

    You blame your lack of magic on the extinction og Dragons.

    You are sure Criss Angel is from Asshai.

    You mutter valar morghulis when accepting change from the cashier.

    You feel more open with people who wear bells in their hair.

    You whisper I'm so sorry to your dinner before eating it.

    Instead of making snowmen every Winter you make snow-walls.

    You think of your casual walks as 'rangings'.

    The word 'others' makes you cringe.

    You always ask chefs if they're blade is sharp before they begin dicing. In fact, you make it a point to always ask twice, using their proper name each time.

    Sometimes you bellow on a horn three times in a row, just to see if the neighbor will understand.
