In this episode of our Linear ReRead through A Song of Ice and Fire we leave “A Feast for Crows” behind as it’s all Dance all the time. We discuss how our own memory of some chapters greatly differs from what’s actually in them and how some chapters just don’t have much to say.

Events take place in early June 300.

Tyrion 9 – Dance – Adrift on the Selaesori Qhoran, captured by slavers
The Griffin Reborn/Jon Connington 2 – Dance – Take Griffin’s Roost
Cersei 1 – Dance – Kevan visits Cersei in jail

Hosts: Adam (drownedsnow), Zach (Alias), Matt (Varley), Hannah (Shadowbaby) and Michael (Khal Wadege), and Abby (Daceymormont).
