I, like pretty much everyone else in the world, am pretty much obsessed with HBO’s Game of Thrones, as well as the books that they’re based on (The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R R Martin, as if you didn’t already know!). So I’ve been reaaaaally excited for Season 6 to air, and the first two episodes have not disappointed at all. Melisandre, you might burn children at the stake, but you’re alright.
So while I anxiously wait for episode 3 to air (at 2am UK time – I’m going to be knackered on a Monday for the rest of the season) I thought I’d do Tania Michelle’s GoT tag – some fun questions about what I think of the series. Without further ago…
- How did you discover the series/books?
I was really late to the show to be honest! A lot of people were talking about the books and the show, and had been for a while and I was just like ‘Not interested’ because it all seemed a bit Lord of the Rings, which I don’t like (shocking, I know!), but after finishing uni for the summer I was majorly bored waiting to start an internship, so I figured I’d try the series and was hooked from the first episode. I bought the books after I’d binged on the first three seasons.
- Who is your favourite house, other than the Starks and Lannisters?
House Targaryen – I love reading about their history and how much of a strong female character Dany is!
- Who is your favourite character from House Stark?
Definitely Jon, although he’s not technically a Stark I know.
- Who is your favourite character from House Lannister?
I love Jaime! I know he’s technically kind of a bad guy, but there’s just this underlying kind of morality that makes me love him, and the whole thing with Brienne. I think he might be a hero in the making after all…
- Who is your favourite character?
- Who is your least favourite character?
I hate, double hate, triple hate, quadruple hate Littlefinger. He’s creepy and sleezy and eurgh!!! He makes my skin crawl.
- What are your thoughts on the series/book?
I love that it’s a whole world that you can get involved in, and learn about. It’s like world history, but better cause magic and dragons. I wish bloody George R R Martin would just hurry up and get writing though!!
- If you could be one of the characters, who would you be and why?
Maybe one of the Sandsnakes. They’re badass and what awesome tans!
- What is your favourite episode or season?
It’s got to be the first episode, it’s such a brilliant piece of TV, cinematography and all, I was just all in from the second I saw it.
- Who is your Game of Thrones crush?
Jon Snow <3 I don’t care if he knows nothing!
- What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming season?
The whole thing really! I feel like the last season brought loads of things to a head and now this season it’s just going to be all the resolutions.
