Must read faster...must read faster...  
I really need to get caught up on A Song of Ice and Fire so I can start reading fic.  One chapter, and I'm already shipping Brienne/Jaime like crazy.  I could read Dany/Jorah, too, though I feel like I'm already being set up for Dany/Robb.  (I just started A Storm of Swords - no spoilers please!)  I've heard that Sansa/Sandor is a big deal in the fandom, but I so don't see that at all.  He may save her life here and there, but he's always a total prick to her.  Plus, she's like...really way younger than him.

I think watching Battlestar Galactica helped prepare me for this series, though.  I kept reading people, in that "oh I'm so special I have already read/watched what you are now reading/watching, that makes me ~fancy, let me spoil you without actually spoiling you" way, talk about how dark! horrible! painful! it was, but I'm like...eh.  I mean, yeah, bad things happen, but I haven't thrown the book away yet.  Or put it in the freezer.

BSG has basically spoiled me for everything. I'm going through West Wing and very much enjoying it, but everything they do well just leaves me thinking about how BSG did something similar, but better. I think if I'd have watched it 2 years ago I'd be going apeshit over it.


*except not really*

*still very much enjoying TWW tho*

Yes. I definitely feel that way about BSG, too. Like, I love Fringe, and enjoy it a lot, and of all the shows currently airing it's probably the one I'm most fannish about, but...it's just not the same.

The only thing I've watched since that's made me feel at all the same way has been Babylon 5 - and I'm not just saying that in my eternal quest to get other people to watch it. ;)

Yay! I might take a little break after ASOS, honestly - I don't want to burn through so fast I'm left wanting more when I know good and well it'll be a long time before there's any more...
