If you are a Game of Thrones fan and haven’t neither seen the series yet nor read the books and are planning to, then this post isn’t for you. I am gonna try and contain myself and not give away any major spoilers, but I can’t guarantee it.
Its already over 😦 The season with 10 episodes is already done. Oh My God!!! What a roller coaster ride. I am still not sure how I feel about the various deviations or rather should I say major deviations from the book. I think I am not too happy about it, but kind of accept it, because that is all I can do now! (I know I am trying to convince myself here, especially now that I have seen all the episodes). The last episode made me empty a big tub of icecream even before I could stop myself or even realize what I was doing. I sort of expected a few of the twists in the last episode and certainly did expect the end scene to be exactly the one that was shown, but that doesn’t mean it felt nice to see it. It still made me cringe in horror. The only other surprise that made me cringe was when Stannis the Mannis did what he did and became the most unpopular guy, even beating Ramsay Bolton in the race. A lot of surprise elements in the series which sort of leads the story astray from the books, especially the White Walkers scene (whoa!!! that was one hell of a scene yeah?). Now that we know a couple of characters are dead , who weren’t dead yet in the book, how is the story gonna proceed….and I have to wait for almost another year now! Dammit!!! I seriously hope the book comes out before that because there is a lot of catching up to do. I really admire how they actually condense the whole story into 10 episodes trying to bring all that matters into the series, considering the number of subplots and characters involved, but still feels bad to see your small and favorite characters not being included. My best scene of the whole series is where Jorah and Tyrion sit and talk after their attack. That was one hell of a place and the photography was so amazing. I kept rewinding to that scene just to take in that sunset. It was soooo awesome. The final episode does win the most gruesome episode award among all the episodes. People dropped dead like flies, literally. Someone even tweeted that this episode had more deaths than the (in)famous Red Wedding 🙂 But at least it ended where the books ended. A small consolation if any.
I think I did manage to not add any spoilers, hopefully. But if I did, well, I did warn ya’. Now the wait begins. But at least there will be lot of posts discussing and dissecting the season. So I will get my GoT fix 😉
When I am bored I love taking some quizzes , anything fun and not adding much pressure to my already exhausted brain. Sometimes, I turn to Buzz-feed for my fun quota. I was really bored during the second half of the work day and took some simple quizzes for fun.
1) Who Is Your “Game Of Thrones” Soulmate?
You know what I got ????
You got: Tyrion Lannister
When it comes to partners-in-crime, it’s brains and not brawn that matter, right? Like Tyrion, you’re sharp as a tack, and aren’t fooled by anyone. Have a large glass of wine, because you and Tyrion are meant to be buds for life.
Yay!!!! My favorite character 😉 Not sure about being soulmate, but yeah buds for life ? why not!
2) What Is Your Scottish Name?
Now, this I wasn’t very sure, because I didn’t know much of the places or the flowers or drinks…So the answer was quite random for the questions asked. And my answer was
You got: Fergus
Hi, your name is Fergus (Fearghas), which means “man-strength”. You are fit, you are strong, you are more powerful than they can possibly imagine.
Hmm… For a female, should it be Fergie ? Hell, whatever ? Sort of matches me to some extent I believe.
Do you wanna play them and let me know what you got ? Are there any other fun games you know of, to keep the boredom away ?
Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t watched all the four seasons of GoT or read all the books, and you are planning to, then you might probably want to skip the rest of this post.
Yesterday was the day when Game of Thrones Season 5 was aired on TV in India. I had to enable HBO Defined channel by paying additional amount for it. But then hey… I get to watch GoT when its aired right. I am not going into the story line or anything here. So you can relax. Now after having gone through all that trouble, and after watching the first episode, I am not sure anymore. May be I should have waited until the DVD came out later ? It was almost a 45 min episode. I think it is almost a 60 min episode otherwise right. As usual, there were cuts. Obviously the double B’s don’t get shown in Indian TV. But have to say that those were edited pretty well, you wont even realize it. But then after watching four seasons you pretty well know where they might have been strategically placed. Yes, at all important scenes when they discuss something pretty important. But since I have already enabled the channel, I might as well watch them even if it is the most clean version of all 🙂 I am more interested in the story aren’t I ?
So for people who haven’t yet started watching the current series yet, and wants a recap of who is where in the series, here is a YouTube video which does just that. It is pretty funny too.
Also I found this interesting video titled ‘Dumb Ways to Die (Game of Thrones Edition)’ Now that really piqued my curiosity. And I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at the way they have shown the deaths and hey, the song is also too cool. Very nursery rhyme-ish but then that is what makes it very cute.
Good night y’all
I like quotes and I like art, especially drawings/paintings and stuff like that. And I like the one’s where they combine both to create something new. I saw one like that in one of the restaurants sometime back and I did post about it. Recently I did see a few more in Twitter and would like to share the same.
From Game of Thrones, one of my favorite character is Tyrion Lannister (I think he is the favorite of a majority of people who follow the book and/or the series). I do follow Tyrion Lannister on Twitter and just loved this picture that was posted there. I don’t tweet much, except to reply to some tweets, very very rarely. But I really wanted to share this and re-tweeted it.
The quote goes like this
“Let me give you some advice, bastard: Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.”
Have you seen/heard Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space‘ song? I love it. I was commenting about that song to my friends and told them that I just love the line where it goes like this
But you’ll come back each time you leave
Cause darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream
I saw this image which was posted on Twitter (I don’t have the link now) but got redirected to the tumblr link (which I saved) and just loved it. It is such a very cool representation of that line. Don’t you think ?
Even though not represented in a drawing or image, the recent song from Jessie J (I really like her songs) called Masterpiece is my current hot favorite.
I have been singing this song continuously for past two days because I love love love these lines.
I still fall on my face sometimes
And I can’t colour inside the lines
‘Cause I’m perfectly incomplete
I’m still working on my masterpiece
For this week’s photography challenge: New
When a new Game of Thrones book had come, I got it as a gift for my friend on his birthday. He is a big fan of that series and was the one who started me on the books by lending his first book. Today I will show a couple of pictures from that new book, for those who haven’t seen it yet. Let me tell you that this book in paper looks so awesome than the kindle version. It is currently with me for sometime. I am yet to start on it though.
