A Game of Thrones Tag | Nerdfest

Hello everyone!

Keeping with the nerdy theme of my blog, I thought I would take part in some of the tag blogs/videos that are on the web. You don't need to be tagged by anyone to do these as they are just for fun! I found this one relating to the Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire series and thought I would share some of my insights on the series! I only discovered the tv show last year, and have now gone on to read the books!

Questions:

  1. How did you discover the series/book?
    • I kept seeing it mentioned on tumblr during the start of season three, so I eventually got a hold of seasons one and two and managed to catch up quickly. I wasn't aware of the books until seasons three was over, so purchased them and started reading. 
  2. Who is your favourite house, other than the Starks and Lannisters?
    • The Tyrells. They might seem harmless at the start, but Margery seems very cunning and manipulative of people without them really realising it. Plus Loras is the Knight of Flowers!! 
  3. Who is your favourite character from House Stark?
    • Arya
  4. Who is your favourite character from House Lannister?
    • Tyrion
  5. Who is your favourite character?
    • I cannot pick between Tyrion and Daenerys. Both are incredibly well written in the books and portrayed amazingly in the programme. 
  6. Who is your least favourite character?
    • A toss up between Joffrey and Walder Frey. Again, written perfectly and acted so well that I love to hate them!
  7. What are your thoughts on the series/book?
    • Once you are in the book, it is very hard to put down. You are actually in the world almost. The programme just helps give certain aspects more visuals, such as how characters look. It will also destroy your soul if you read/watch it. Everyone you like dies!!
  8. If you could be one of the characters, who you would you be and why?
    • I'd like to say Arya, but she has so much crap happen to her that I would prefer to be Daenerys. 
  9. Who is your favourite episode/season?
    • Fave episode has to be the Red Wedding. I was not expecting it at all as I hadn't got to that point of the books when it aired! Season one was pretty good as it set up the bases of the programme. 
  10. Who is your Game of Thrones crush?
    • Jon Snow
  11. What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming season/book?
    • I'm looking forward to reading the Red Wedding chapters as I feel that it will be really descriptive! I've still got another book to go before I even get close to that one. As for season four, (which has just had the trailer released) anything with the Dragons and Arya will be something I look forward to!
This was different from my usual stuff wasn't it! If you are a GOT fan and want to do this tag, then please do and link me so I can see what your answers are. Hope you liked this little tag as I would love to do more. Hope you're having a great day and keep safe :)
