The latest promo for Game of Thrones, HBO's adaptation of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, aired before the season finale of True Blood. Check out the latest footage from the production in Belfast.
Okay; during Harry Potter fandom's long run in the 2000's, from the first movie in 2001 to the final movie in 2011, we've had a generation of scifi & fantasy fans proclaiming their allegiance to different wizard houses: Gryffindors, Slytherins, etc.
1 - I now predict that scifi fandom in general, and io9's comments boards in particular, will be divided between loyalties to the various different Westerosi royal houses: we're going to divide between those supporting House Stark, House Lannister, etc.
2 - at this point I would like to make it known that I am the first io9 commentator to officially declare my allegiance to *neither* House Stark or House Lannister, or any other usurper, but to the restoration of House Targaryen.
Fire and blood!
