It feels like forever since I have had any new Game of Thrones to watch…or any new A Song of Ice and Fire to read. In little over a month we all will get the seventh season of the hit HBO show. I am betting we will not get the last two books until the show has completed its run in 2018. I hope I am wrong about that but more and more it feels like that is what is going to happen. That means for now the show will be the officially unofficial canon of Westeros will be the show. As a writer I am not super happy about that but as a fan I just need my GoT fix already. To help satisfy that need I embark upon a 30 day blogging challenge about Thrones. I am going to try to answer each prompt once for the TV show and once for the books since a great many things differ. With that being said…
Day Eight-Least Favorite Male Character
Should I troll the internet and say Jon Snow? And then when everyone messages me hate say ‘because he knows nothing.’
That could be fun but I think my least favorite male character in both mediums is Jorah Mormont. Let’s just be honest here…all us dudes wanna pretend and think of ourselves as Khal Drogo, Ned Stark, Mr. Snow, or maybe even Tyrion but in the end most of the time we are fucking Jorah Mormont. hopelessly in love with a chick way out of our league. It sucks but no one ever said life is fair.
I super do not like how Jorah’s arc was handled on the show. Mostly because the stuff they cut out of the book was a lot of the stuff I super enjoyed reading about. In the books Jorah’s arc just makes him out to be a sad sack. Seriously he is just sad. Sometime so sad its hard to read about. He is sad and broken and to be perfectly honest how he got there isn’t all that interesting.
Maybe I should have just trolled everyone.
