With this post…the series of Game of Thrones Challenge comes to a close. I thank Patrick (who has his own lovely blog on GOT), Santulan, Kanzensakura and everyone else who have been on exploring GOT and adding to my meagre knowledge 🙂 It was awesome sharing the same passion as you guys. Yeayy!!!! 😀
Day 30: One celebrity from the show you would love to meet IRL?
I would love to meet Arya Stark/Maisie Williams. When I was on Twitter, I used to follow her and she has a wacky sense of humor. She also has a pet tortoise and is cool in every which way. Yeay and yeay 😀 And because I am such a greedy person :P, I would also love to meet Peter Dinklage and Pedro Pascal 😀
Today, I will tell you a very weird thing. I don’t know…but ever since I have known that this man is pure evil walking free, I have hated him to the core. His sigil, his very personal sigil is that of a Mockingbird.
And know what? Everytime I see him, all I I can think of “To Kill A Mockingbird” and that is a book by Harper Lee 😛 It can be autobiography of the person who wipes this cunning little evil thing from the map of Westeros.
Day 28: If you were to be in Westeros, which profession would you like to take up?
I would be a Maester by profession. Why? Well, I have a certain thirst for knowing everything that exists in the world. The chain worn by a maester, with the links having special significance will be my badge of honour or rather, my “degrees” that I will proudly display. I would teach the kids of noble houses – another favorite occupation. Also, I would be able to heal people with injuries so, I can also be a medico!! Multitasking is indeed a fascinating thing and in Westeros, it becomes double the fun 😛
There are a number of fan theories floating like boats in the Riverlands in ASOIAF. Like you have Jon Snow being the son of a Stark and a Targaryen. This being quite an obvious choice. But the theory that really had my mind-blown was that Tyrion is supposedly a Targaryen. That will really change the Game – of thrones and otherwise 😉
Day 20: Three Words That Define Game Of Thrones For You?
I have no other words for the series, which has a bit of everything. It would be different with no magical elements. It would lose its character if it had happy endings to the story arcs. It would not have the desired effect without GRRM’s words. Give the man an award or two now 😀 😀
Given the recent developments of the show and the developments in the book that I know of, I would definitely choose Arya Stark as my trial by combat champion. I would like to pitt her against Cersei so that she can strike off her from her list and you know…;)
Point to be noted: Those of you, who do not know who Hodor is, he is this cutesy giant of a man who seems to be dimwit but is a sweetheart. He can only say one word and that is “Hodor”. There are many variations of Hodors that constitute Hodorism. Needless to say, this has led to numerous memes. I hope that the take on Hodor in the link pasted above, makes some sense even to non GOT fans 🙂 Cheers!
Don’t kill me for this…but I would like to pair up the very dashing Dario Naharis with Mellisandre. Why you ask? Well, to me they would be stark (ooh…see the pun 😛 ) opposites. The calm and composed Mellisandre will be apt for the brash and flamboyant Dario 😀
“I will hurt you for this. I don’t know how yet, but give me time. A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you’ll know the debt is paid.” (Tyrion to Cersei)
– By GRRM, A Clash of Kings
*I Googled this one up though. Bad memory.
And this one – as a tribute to the great Oberyn Martell of Drone 😀
“It is rare to meet a Lannister who shares my enthusiasm for dead Lannisters.”
