Game of Thrones Fever is back in full force- the Song of Ice and Fire resounds through our day to day lives.
For those of us die hard Game of Thrones fans- we have all at some point pondered an important and very relevant question. I am speaking, of course, of the question of which Game of Thrones character we would be if we lived in the world of 7 Kingdoms where Dragons fly the skies and winters last 3 years at a time.
Thankfully, we have Buzzfeed and platforms such as Facebook to answer these important life questions for us. Most of us have probably done the quiz going around now. If you haven’t already, what even are you doing with your life?!
Some view this quiz as silly. Some even go as far as to deem it a waste of time. Who can take time out of their busy schedule to fill in a buzzfeed quiz equating themselves to a fictional character from a Television series? Aint nobody got time for that. But I am here to tell you why knowing what Game of Thrones character you would be is a totally necessary pursuit.
Why, if you don’t know whether you are Lord Baelish or Arya, how will you know how to respond with all of the gumption of a legendary hero when someone in your work place dares to sleight you? Do you take the passive aggressive route and get them back via the use of carefully planted seeds of doubt and confusion. Or do you take matters into your own hands like Arya Stark?
Just imagine it. You offer your colleagues fresh orange juice at Monday morning’s meeting. The OJ is laced with sleeping pills of course. As they all begin to succumb to the slumber, you repeat boldly “You leave one wolf alive, the sheep are never safe”. You will be a legend once your colleagues return to normal consciousness at the end of the day, and realise how funny your little prank was. They will think twice before messing with YOU again. Either that, or you will be fired. And possibly arrested. Because let’s face it- this is 2017 and that kind of behaviour just doesn’t fly anymore. So maybe the Little Finger passive aggressive approach is the better choice after all. You see- this is why you need to be clear.
This quiz is also obviously the best way to tell you what life decisions you should really be making. Should you be hatching Dragons (even if they are metaphorical ones) and travelling the world on a mission to create an empire based on freedom and equality, or should you be somewhere more permanent, manning our walls against terrors that lie beyond?
And because if you can’t put yourself in the shoes of a GoT character and ask yourself what they would do in your situation, you will just never be able to do everything in life epically. Ask yourself, do you want to just do things? Or do you want to do them like Winter is Coming?
So tell me, where do you sit on the Iron Throne? Who are you when you play the Game of Thrones, a Game in which when played, you either win, or you die.
Just one thing- if you got Ramsay Bolton, stay far away from me and my homestead! If you got Tyrion on the other hand, head on over. I’m in the mood for a glass of wine and a good joke.
