    1. “We welcome all kinds of proposals from informal discussions to formal academic presentations. Have fun and be creative, we want to hear your voices! The deadline for submissions is March 13, 2019 so you have time to plot out your ideas. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!”

      Question:
      • The Con is July 12-14, 2019.
      • The submission deadline is March 13, 2019.
      • Season 8 might not conclude until sometime after March 13, 2019.

      So… isn’t it possible or likely that a timely submitted proposal for a discussion or presentation topic could be obsolete four months later after the show has (presumably) concluded?

      Hypothetical: An ardent Sandorologist might propose to discuss The Hound as the anti-hero who’s actually protected and saved the Stark sisters, and forecast his trajectory as aiming towards sacrificing his life for one or both them – with his dying words to the sobbing sisters: “Remember where the heart is.”

      But by the time of the Con. after the show has presumably concluded, the last scene of S8e6 could very well be Lord Commander of the Queensguard Sandor Clegane writing in the White Book about his great deeds, e.g.:

      • “Saved Lady of Winterfell from gang rape and murder.
      • Saved the future Queen from Frey idiots and Polliver’s goons. Helped her retrieve Needle and get a pony.
      • Defeated Night King in single combat.”

      …. and then – because he’s not one to toot his own horn – use White-Out to erase all of that, and in its place write simply:

      • “Ate every f*cking chicken on this planet.”

    2. I attended the first, but not the second. Did they actually follow through with the Valyrian ‘perks’ in Dallas? Our experience was that we got very little out of the extra pass except a session of Water Dancing, as they didn’t enforce any of the special lines or seating areas that were supposed to be for Valyrians.

    3. Ten Beers,

      To avoid confusion with mine, may I kindly ask you to use a different, more distinctive screen name?

      (A few times, in the past, I’d exploited the homonym and used ten 🍺 emojis in a posted comment.)

      I don’t doubt you didn’t intend to mislead. It’s just that if you continue to post comments – and I hope you do – it’d be helpful if you have a distinctive screen name.

      Of course, if you’d like to choose one like I did as an homage to a favorite movie, here are some other characters’ names or terms you could use: Zukie Limmer; Captain Redlegs Terrill; Lone Watie; Little Moonlight; Mr. Carpetbagger; Granny Hawkins; Mr. Chain-Blue Lightning Himself; Grandma Sarah Comanchero; Rose of Santa Rio; Tom Turner; Sim Castairs; Bloody Bill Anderson; Laura Lee Turner; Missouri Boat Ride; Bushwhacker; Jayhawker; The Grey Rider; Dyin’ Ain’t Much of a Livin’; The Double-Tongues.

    4. Ten Bears,

      I think it be cool if they had a stand for hot pie to sell his baking goods since the actor owns a bakery now. He could have a set up for direwolve shaped stuff and what not

    5. Ten Bears,

      My first thought when I saw that Con dates were announced before air dates for the final season were, “Gee, I wonder if someone at Mischief Management got word from D&D about when the final episode is going to air?” I mean, it would be epic beyond belief if a few hundred die-hard, cosplaying fans watched it together at the Sheraton bar… 😂
