Editor’s note: As promised last week, here is the second part in a multi-site project undertaken by BryndenBFish. Enjoy, and welcome our guest writer to the Wall! – Sue the Fury
Hello, again Watchers on the Wall! Thank you all so much for your responses for part 1 of ASOIAF Theory Poll! As of this writing, you all have provided 2,941 responses. Thank you! If you didn’t get a chance to vote for part 1, the poll is still open!
As stated previously, this year, I am doing a 5-site cross survey of the A Song of Ice and Fire fandom surveying the following fandoms:
My intent in polling these various fandoms is to find congruence and disparity among the many A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones fandoms. The data will then be analyzed to look at trends, variance and congruence on the various fan-theories on A Song of Ice and Fire.
A word of warning: This survey is intended for those who have read all 5 published books in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series as well as the Dunk and Egg novellas, the Princess and the Queen and The Rogue Prince, The World of Ice and Fire and finally The Winds of Winter sample chapters. If you’re not comfortable with this, no harm, no foul if you choose not to participate in the survey. However, if you’re comfortable with these parameters, then this survey’s for you. For that matter, none of the questions presented are mandatory – meaning you can skip questions if you’re completely unfamiliar with the theory.
If you want to know more about the theories presented in the survey or see ideas that you’d like to be refreshed on, I’ve created several theory resources to provide information and fan-defenses of the theories on Reddit:
For your enjoyment- last year’s results:
This will be the second and final survey coming your way. Today’s survey is on plot points, ASOIAF History and the future of ASOIAF! I split up the survey as the number of theories I was trying to put together was rather daunting, and I figured that I (and hopefully by extension: you) enjoy a smaller survey split by topic.
All good? Alright, here’s Part 2 of your survey, Watchers on the Wall! Tell me what you think!
