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 Fourteen-Favorite Ship/Pairing
Hmmmm this is a tough one.
No I do not ship incest or anything else morally questionable. So a lot of the ships here are dead in the water because that shit is fucking gross. In the books I ship Jamie Lannister and Brienne of Tarth. I think that is where that arc is going and I am all for it. I am not so sure they are my OTP or not but in the books they are pretty damn close.
On the show I am not even sure I have a ship anymore. The arcs have been so distorted and switched around that it is very hard to think of anyone I want to see in a relationship. It would be nice to see Sansa Stark find a man deserving of her. I’d like to see Melisandre drop leeches on Little Robin’s privates but that more just for entertainment.
Other than that nothing is coming to mind so I guess I Jamie and Brienne are my OTP from the books, while I just want everyone on the show to get what they have coming. Starting with Cersei. No time for love Doctor Jones.
