  1. Really looking forward to it. The first CoT was my first con experience, and it was wonderful. It means I get to visit the US again, too!

    It’ll be great to meet more of you guys this year 🙂

  2. As you can see from my confusing Avatar, I am definitely 100% Iain Glen*, no word of a lie so please keep an eye out for me this year! Looking forward to reconnecting with old friends I met last year and meeting new people as well. What are you looking forward to most this year?

    *not actually Iain Glen but hoping we secure him for this year, by some miracle!

  3. I can’t WAIT to go back to Con of Thrones — it was my first-ever con and it was the most amazing time I could’ve hoped for. Really looking forward to going again!

  4. I will be there again! This time, gods be good, Mr. Cat will not have to cancel at the airport gate due to a family emergency! When will proposals for panels be due? We are working on something I hope y’all will enjoy!

  5. I really wanted to go this year… But I hate Texas. I even wrote a song about how much I hate Texas. Last GoT Con was in the east US, this one should be west US. Whomever planned this event made a HUGE mistake picking Dallas, Texas. Dallas is on every list of the MOST UNFRIENDLY places. Does anyone check those things?

    I will attend Con of Thrones, when it is in a place, that is welcoming, nice, not over priced.

    But NEVER ever in Texas.

  6. She Bear of Mormont,

    Well I don’t know about internet lists, but I used to live in Texas, and Dallas was always very kind and gracious to my Yankee self. 🙂 It’s a shame you can’t make it. Maybe next year!

  7. Sue the Fury,

    “Well I don’t know about internet lists, but I used to live in Texas, and Dallas was always very kind and gracious to my Yankee self. 🙂 It’s a shame you can’t make it. Maybe next year!”

    It is known. Dallasites may have the reputation of Wildlings, but as a rule they are indeed kind and gracious. It’s an easy matter to avoid politics (except the Westerosi kind 🙂 ). Gods be good, I shall be at the Con (my first) and look forward to meeting the good and sagacious members of WotW. Sue, if you find yourself coming to town early, send a raven. I know where good oysters, clams & cockles and Arbor Gold are to be had.

  8. Luka Nieto: It means I get to visit the US again, too!

    Well, be sure to keep an eye on the constantly growing list of banned countries / religions / ethnicities / political philosophies, to make sure they’ll let you enter the country. As an American, I apologize for my government. I didn’t vote for him.

  9. Do not miss this opportunity to be able to poke your favorite community members to make sure they are real and not advanced Game of Thrones Markov chain bots. But really, don’t touch them. Unless they ask.

  10. Con of Thrones was outstanding this year, and we’ll all need some big mid-year Game of Thrones event next year to help us through the hiatus. I’m looking forward to meeting up with more of the Watchers on the Wall writers (I was too shy to approach them at the last Con of Thrones.)

  11. I’m going! And I’m very excited as it’s my first Con ever. So, hopefully it’ll be as good as this year’s. My friend went and loved it.

  12. I do wish they would find another name for this event.

    In the UK, “con” means a confidence trick – a scam or a swindle.

  13. Grandmaester Flash,

    It has always meant the same thing here, but the enormous success of Comic-Con has resulted in the word having two meanings. “Con man” is still used regularly, especially to describe the Oran…

    Stop, Wolfish. Stop right there. Quit your howling.
