BOOK TAG| Game of Thrones Tag

I don't really get tagged, nor do I tend to tag people. I just find these really fun to do. If you fancy doing it, I tag you! Just leave a comment with your link and I'll take a look.

I can't guarantee that this is spoiler free. This post is dark and full of spoilers. Sorry, not sorry. 

Let's get going. 

1) How did you discover the series/books?

I've always seen the books around, going into Waterstones and other book chains and seeing the covers, and freaking out at the sheer size of them. And then the TV show happened, I saw a few episode when season 2 (?) was airing. It wasn't until Christmas 2014 that I really became obsessed. I recorded and binged series 1-4 in less than two days, and then begun  reading the first book in the series. Now, I'm all caught up, on both sides.

2) Who is your all-time favorite character?


No matter my mood, it always comes back to Jaime. I just find him so fascinating to read, watch and discuss. I feel like I should give Sansa some more love, but Jaime still wins out. 

3) Who is your favorite side character?

Ooosh.. this one is trickier. Is Bronn a side character? I'm one for comic relief when needed, and Bronn brings that and doesn't pull it to ridiculous extremes. 

4) If you could magically resurrect a character by sacrificing another character, who would you sacrifice and who would you bring back?

I wouldn't so much resurrect another character by sacrificing another character, but if I COULD bring one character back to life it would be Catelyn Stark. For the role she goes on to play in the books. 

5) You're a person of the Night's Watch, who would you break your oath of chastity for? 

Oof? Tempted to be cheeky and say Podrick Payne- I want to know what he did to those whores. 

6) Dragon or Direwolf? Which would you rather have by your side?

Dragon. I have a collection of statue dragons that go on my bookshelf, because I love that much. Dragons.

7) Which character would you most like to portray on television?

Brienne of Tarth is my go to answer. 

8) What is your favorite moment of the books/series?

Oh shit, there are so many! 
TV show wise? Maybe when Nikolaj Coster-Waldau delivered Jaime's speech in baths during series 3. Stole the whole series for me. That's when I knew Jaime Lannister was my favourite character. Now I think about it same book wise too.

9) Who do you think deserves to sit on the Iron Throne by the end of the series?

I don't think there will be an Iron Throne at the end of this. 

10) What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming book/season?

In the books, I am looking forward to seeing how the Lady Stoneheart storyline progresses with Jaime and Brienne. Also, the "Targaryen" that Tyrion encounters at the end of AFoC/beginning of ADWD.  How GRRM handles the white walker threat in comparison to the TV show.
Tv show, Jaime finally away from that poison of his life, Cersei Lannister.

If you watch the show and/or read the books and haven't yet done this tag- I tag you!
