10 Awesome Game of Thrones Character Art Posters by chrisables

A long time ago, she remembered her father saying that when the cold wind blows the lone wolf dies but the pack survives. He had it all backwards. Arya, the lone wolf, still lived, but the wolves of the pack had been taken and slain and skinned

“Remove this liar from my sight,” she commanded.

Few of the birds that Aemon had sent off had returned as yet. One reached Stannis, though. One found Dragonstone, and a king who still cared. A thousand leagues south, Sam knew, his father had joined House Tarly to the cause of the boy on the Iron Throne, but neither King Joffrey nor little King Tommen had bestirred himself when the Watch cried out for help. What good is a king who will not defend his realm?

If I look back, I am doomed, Dany told herself… but how could she not look back? I should have seen it coming. Was I so blind, or did I close my eyes willfully, so I would not have to see the price of power? [x]


 In this beautiful series, artist Elin Jonsson depicts the women of “Game of Thrones” in the style of Alphonse Mucha.



the ironic thing about hbo choosing not to name their show a song of ice and fire is that by titling it game of thrones they’ve proven exactly how fucking much they’re missing the point. because that’s the thing. the books are not about the game of thrones and the characters…

But…no. Yes there is a point to be made that all of the southron squabbles for the worlds most uncomfortable chair may be rendered totally meaningless if The Others make it over the wall or Daenerys finally stops dicking about in the slaver cities and comes to dracarys the shit out of King’s Landing, YES there is a point. But……

  1. To say the books are wholly about dragons vs zombies? I think that’s missing something too. The ‘Ice’ and ‘Fire’ of the series title is much more thematic than literal. It has many representations throughout the story and the zombies and the dragons are just one of several.

  2. A Song of Ice and Fire just doesn’t work for television. One of my main problems with this adaptation is that a number of book fans just expect a straight translation and don’t understand the changes or allowances that need to be made for a totally different medium. As far as show titles go you need something short, snappy, something that gives you a vague idea of its content. Something like, oh hey, how about Game of Thrones? Yeah that could work. Oh it’s also the name that GRRM CHOSE for the first book in the series that is supposedly nothing to do at all with the game of thrones? Well fan-fucking-tastic.

  3. The game of thrones itself, the struggle for the Iron Throne, actually does have weight in the story. It’s a HUGE part of the series. And if you’re right, if the whole thing does come down to just dragons vs ice zombies (which I hope to God it doesn’t, a battle would be cool but to bring the entire, complicated, beautiful story down to just that?) then the person who sits the Iron Throne will affect the outcome. Would Stannis have ever gone north to respond to the Night’s watch calls for help if he didn’t give a shit about the Iron Throne? Would Dany and her dragons ever bother going back to Westeros if she didn’t give a shit about the Iron Throne? What about the armies and their strategy if they come to fight The Others? Who’s going to command them? The person who sits the Iron fucking Throne and their delegates. If Dorne, the Iron Islands or the North secedes from the rest of the seven kingdoms then again, it’s still those involved with the power struggle who will be heavily involved in the defence of their kingdoms should they come under attack from, I don’t know, a horde of ice zombies or dragonfire. 


There’s no shame in fear, my father told me, what matters is how we face it.

 three treasons Cersei had named Joffrey, Tommen, and Myrcella

"Up to now, Sansa has been a piece that other people have moved about the board to achieve their own goals, using her, discarding her, using her for a different purpose, you know, ‘You’re gonna marry Joffrey.’ ‘No, you’re gonna marry Loras.’ ‘You’re gonna marry Tyrion.’ She is beginning to at least try to understand how she can play the game of thrones and be, not a piece, but a player with her own goals and moving other pieces around. And she’s not a warrior like Robb, Jon Snow. She’s not even a wild child like Arya. She can’t fight with swords, axes. She can’t raise armies. But she has her wits, the same as Littlefinger has."
