What GoT Would Be Like if the Characters Used Social Media

What GoT Would Be Like if the Characters Used Social Media

Just the mere mention of Game of Thrones (GoT), one of the biggest shows in TV history, sends people into a frenzy. Everyone has an opinion, including the people who don’t watch it. Yes, GoT is that good.

Imagine what GoT would be like in 2017. What would the fictional characters have to say if they could use social media? Let’s face it: secretly, we all want to be riding under a banner trying desperately to claim the throne.

Dressed in medieval garb and sporting trendy hairstyles, men all over the world would be vying for a chance to marry Daenerys Targaryen. And, who wouldn’t? She makes Kim Kardashian seem rather ordinary. Not to mention, she is the mother of dragons. Dragons, people.

Let’s face it, sending a message by social media sure beats trudging through the snow for years being chased by angry dead people.

How would GoT characters fare if they had access to social media?

Sansa Stark

Sansa was quite shallow at the beginning of the show. She was concerned only with her social status and beauty.

Think Mean Girls meets Westeros. There is no doubt that her Twitter feed would consist of teenage crushes and disdain at her brother’s inability to listen to her advice.

Something like, “OMG Anthony Weiner just texted me! Why do I always pick the worst guys?” or “Ugh, Jon sucks! I saved his ass and now he’s crowned King of the North. Hopefully, Baelish’s offer still stands…I am not going back there.”

Jon Snow

Jon’s constant need to do the right thing has made him a fan favorite. In fact, they won’t let him die. But then, he is a bit “doom-and-gloom” at times, and he takes everything too seriously.

Jon’s tweets are likely to state what dire straits we are all in. “Trump is President, the UK has abandoned Europe, Russia is hacking the Net, and Winter is here.”

He’ll be sure to include some self-deprecating comments about what the right thing to do next will be. “Yes, I defeated Bolton and I am King of the North. Anyone else would’ve done the same thing. No time to celebrate, I’ve got to go build a wall, find Hilary and lock her up. Once I am King, I will make it all great again.”

Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion’s wit is well known in Westeros, along with his admiration of women. You can always count on him to find humor in any situation and to always have his mind in the gutter. His tweets are bound to be funny, sexy and mocking. “Cersei has just had a MASSIVE tantrum and trashed the place. Jaime has been neglecting her again. She’s just discovered I’ve pinched all her wine and signed her up for an assertiveness gig on coachingjobs.com.”

Cersei Lannister

Cersei is a harsh, vengeful character. She has strong feelings of hatred for most people around her. In contrast, she does care about the people she loves fiercely. There is no middle ground where her emotions are.

Her feed would verge on the inappropriate. Rants about incompetence would be common. “Why, oh why must I be surrounded by idiots? The next time I hear something stupid I’m going to burn this place to the ground!” This along with something a bit suggestive without being too full on – “Hey bro, what you up to tonight? Want to Netflix and chill with me?” Whatever she’s tweeting, she is not the person you want to enter into a Twitter war with. She’ll tear you down with her words or come after you in real life to exact her revenge!

But, then again, she has not met Lady Mormont. Now that would be a Twitter battle for the ages.

If this sounds all too familiar, it should. After all, life imitates art. Perhaps that is why everyone seems to love this show so much. We see too much of ourselves in these characters. Imagine how other famous people shape who we are and who will become. GoT help us all!

50+ Best Motivational Quotes To Prepare You For Any Challenges In Life

Life is filled with highs and lows —happiness and struggles that will test your resilience and integrity, push you to overcome challenges and leave you with lessons that will make you even stronger on your way up.

It’s the way you feel and think about yourself, including your expectations and beliefs about what is possible to you, greatly determines everything that happens to you.

                            Quotes for work and success

                            14. Don’t talk, just act. Don’t say, just show. Don’t promise, just prove.
