Best Fans Ever

I've always said that I had the best fans in the world.

Now VULTURE has made it official.

See here:

Take a bow, all of you. Westeros rules... because of you.

Far out. Maybe we should update the BWB website....

some fans actually learn to speak Dothraki, which became an entire constructed language à la Klingon from Star Trek

And yet others learn how to curse out Klingons in Dothraki.

Why best fans?
You have the best fans, because you write the very best fantasy! Thank you, George, for such wonderful, creative works of genius.

Up until now, I've managed to never get 'fanatical' about anything (although I came close with Buffy the Vampire Slayer) ..

All that changed when I read "Game of Thrones", and then watched the HBO show ..

It's all about Daenerys for me. :)

ASOIAF fans are the best
I was half-tempted to make up a celebratory rhyme, but knowing we beat out Bieber AND the Insane Clown Posse is merit enough. :)

Well done, fellow fans!

Awesome
It's true, I try to find ways to feed my addiction to the world of Westeros but nothing even comes close to scratching that itch, just have to keep re-reading the series and watch the show over and over again until the next book comes out. Until then I'm just sitting in the corner speculating on the third Dragon and who really is Azor Ahai.

Really really really wish you could post those sample chapters you've read at some of the conventions with Tyrion and Victarion, you can find youtube videos for the Victarion chapter but all you can find for Tyrion are people who just summarize it and it ruins the effect the chapter should have on you.

But while we all wait for "The Winds of Winter" we just get to enjoy season 3 and The Red Wedding and watch how friends and family go crazy over the result :D. Like you said in one interview how you were going to go hide when that airs, from me and all your loyal bannermen like to wish you good luck on the fallout of that episode :)

I'm very glad that, since this August, I'm also among your fans. My dad recommended your books to me for a long time, but it took me years to listen to him.
Thanks for all the pleasure and all the emotions you bring us!

Woooh!
I was pretty proud when I heard about this, I must say! Though only part of the credit goes to us, you know. A creative work has gotta be pretty darn amazing to spark such love and obsession ;)

It's all thanks you YOU, George. I'm SO eager for more Iceand Fire and Dunk and Egg so I'm lookingforward to those, but I understand and realize you're human, not a robot writing machine.

I'm a big fan of the written Westeros, and also quite like the HBO series. That said, I'm a fan of (what vulture lists) :

- Mad Men
- Neil Gaiman (haven't read much of his stuff...read and liked Stardust, also want to read American Gods and Anansi Boys)
- Bruce is pretty good, especially 'Born to to Run' and 'The Promise'
- Star Trek (just the tech, mythos and universe is far better than Star Wars)
- Community. Definitely a hit. Angie's a total cutie.
- Joss Whedon (for Buffy and Serenity/firefly)
- Hunger Games (only read the books though)
- Lord of the Rings (and some other Tolkien stuff...did you know Tolkien wanted LotR (as one volume) and The Silmarillion published together as a duology called 'The Saga of the Jewels and the Rings'?)
- Harry Potter (both films and books)

Greatest fans ever!
Then maybe you could reward us with a fresh sample chapter! Yeah!

Thanks in advance.

Woohoo!
I am proud to call myself a long time fan! I've been reading your books for eleven years(I was 15, can't get into them much earlier than that so it is a long time for me) and I know how much others care about your work since I introduced it to a good number of people. But really, you would not have some of the best fans if you did not have some of the best novels ever written. We will take a bow... to you- THE KING OF THE NERDS!!! THE KING OF THE NERDS!!! THE KING OF THE NERDS!!!

Best part is without doubt "[the fans] are as anxious for the coming of winter as the series’ characters". That is so true! I consider myself a capital-F fan of many things in life but what impresses me the most about the asoiaf phenomenon is the unrelenting activity of your fans (and I count myself in).
I stay away one single day from the forums and when I come back the amount of new discussions, theories and analysis on your novels has grown out of all proportion, even though the last book was released more than a year ago and every possible detail in it has already been discussed over and over! The thing is that most of the online fan stuff about the saga is actually well written and enjoyable to read. Asoiaf fans are not only the most devoted aficionados you can possibly find on the on this planet, but also some of the most smart and clever people around! In this sense we really are the best fan in the world. Now, I know that you tend to avoid reading theories and fanfics circulating online but I can assure you that some of them are so well documented and argumented that they could make their own book! You should read them one day, some of them are totally crazy!
