Daenerys- As much as I adore the character of Daenerys, I’m not quite certain she’s going to make it through to the end. In my wildest fantasies, she becomes pregnant with Jon’s child. But this is the Game of Thrones, and I can’t help but think Dany is not going to get what she wants, nay, burns for. I half-way believe that Jon will have to kill her to fulfill the Azor Ahai prophecy. Either that, or she is going to have to sacrifice Drogon in some manner.

Jon Snow- I’m equally unconvinced that Jon is going to live. He was brought back to life by Melisandre to fulfill a purpose, and I believe that will be to kill the Night King. But once he achieves his purpose, who is to say that he will live after that?? Perhaps he will be free to rest in peace once the prophecy is fulfilled and the long night is over again. I 75% have a gut feeling he will make it to the end, but I’m not sure.

Tormund- Since this is Game of Thrones, I can’t help but think of something tragic happening to one of my favorite characters. I don’t think he died in the Wall’s destruction, but that doesn’t make him safe. I believe he might sacrifice himself for Brienne. Or he might go down in the Final Battle somehow

Brienne of Tarth- Speaking of Brienne, I am half way convinced she is going to make it through to the end. After all, she is an excellent fighter. She beat the Hound! I am 85% sure she is going to make it. There is no reason to be so optimistic, I just don’t want her to be dead.

Jaime Lannister- I wouldn’t put it past Jaime to sacrifice himself in the end. He will do some foolishly brave thing as his last act. He might help them some in some epic way. I could see his fate going either way. After such an immersive redemptive arc, it might not be too far a stretch that they might want him to outlive his reputation as the Kingslayer. Or to give his reputation a new meaning?!

Sandor Clegane- I want Sandor to win the Cleganebowl. I don’t want him to die in the process. I could see him sacrificing himself for either of the Stark girls. He might die in the Final Battle, because he is not going to do well in it. With the dragons present, there is going to be a lot of flaming wights and soldiers alike going on. He might freeze up and end up the worst for it. I half way don’t expect him to make it through the end. He was instrumental to Azor Ahai’s prophecy however so perhaps there is hope for him yet.

Gendry Waters- I could unfortunately see Gendry falling during the Final Battle. I do not have the most trust in his fighting abilities. He might be able to swing that axe ably, but I think he lacked battle experience. He might be too green and get himself killed in the Final Battle. I feel 64% he won’t make it through to the end.

Yara Greyjoy- I see Yara being rescued by Theon, or almost(!) This is Game of Thrones after all. I could see something tragic befalling both the Greyjoy siblings in Theon’s attempt to save her. Maybe neither one of them will make it out of it alive. I feel 35% certain she might die.

Bran Stark- I want Bran to warg into Viserion more than anything. It might cost him his life, but so be it. I don’t think I see the Three Eyed Raven making it through to the end. Maybe. Then again, he is the Three Eyed Raven, so perhaps he will find a way to go live beyond the wall in the End and go be part of that old tree like his predecessor. I feel 73% he’ll live.

Meera Reed- I can’t imagine she wouldn’t be part of the Final Battle. I want to believe she would live, but I can’t be sure. I think she’s more likely to live than to die. She survived beyond the wall, after all.

Podrick Payne- I very much want Pod to go on. That is why I fear for his safety. I’m unconvinced he’ll make it through to the end. I’d give him a 50/50 chance of living. He might sacrifice himself for Brienne or Tyrion or Bronn. Or he might just fall in battle in the Final Battle. In my heart of hearts, I’d like to see him knighted.

Game of Thrones: Jonsa

Related image

I have read quite a lot of fanfiction. Disclaimer; My OTPs are SandorxSansa and AryaxGendry. I have read a few really good Jonsa stories though.

I don’t think the two of them getting married would be too far-fetched. Especially after it is revealed that he is a Targaryean. They would be cousins then, and it’s not like she felt very close and brotherly towards him when they were growing up. Catelyn always taught her to regard him with disdain.

I don’t see things going that way in canon necessarily? I have almost made up my mind that Jon is the Prince Who Was Promised and that he will have to sacrifice Danearyus in order to stop the Long Night. So I definitely think Dany bites the dust by the end of all things, but what is my stance on Jon? I can’t decide. He may or may not live.  I’m leaning towards not.

Sansa could rule, then? Who would she marry? Or would she just be a sovereign queen? Some people think she may end up with Tyrion after all. I don’t hate that idea, either. Could Sansa garner the support of the realm if Danaeryus, her dragons, and Jon were gone?

The North would declare her Queen of the North. Would the wheel be broken and the realm scattered, people elected rather than using blood lines? I liked the idea Tyrion kept suggesting, that they use the system that the Night’s Watch used.

As for Jon, I think he and his aunt have a lot of reasons to be attracted to one another. They are on equal footing and they respect each other. They’re both strong willed and born to rule. They both have achieved impossible things. They both have risen above the circumstances of their birth and traveled far in their lives. He went from a lowly bastard to the King of the North. She was sold into slavery and ended up a Queen. I like the pairing pretty well. I think I like them together more than he and Sansa.

Final Verdict on Jonsa: I will read a fic all day long where they’re not related lol Such as modern AUs.  That’s the problem with people who try to go canon with this. Some people write Jon revering Sansa as some untouchable Madonna of his early life- oh, what would lady stark say now if she knew he harbored such dirty thoughts for her perfect girl? See how weird that sounds? I’m not into it.

But if they’re not related, it’s an AU, or a modern setting AU, thumbs up.

Arya and the Hound

The Wolf and the Hound by Pawprynt
Arya and the Hound have been travelling together for several years now. The constant bickering is comfortable between them and they constantly are complaining of the other. However, as winter approaches, nights get colder, and life brings them closer together, a spark just might happen and make these two people who “hate” each other feel something else. Rated M for later chapters.

I recently read a very interesting story. I really enjoy the Hound in fanfiction. Sandor Clegane. Cruel and rough, yet gentle at the same time. I marvel at Sandor’s character. If you consider him solely from the TV universe, he really is a noble character in many ways.

Yes, he killed because his King bid him to. He enjoyed killing. But he also protected those who are weak. He had a heart to break behind his ugly, scarred face. The way he offered himself to Sansa and did kind things for her twisted my heart.

She had little kindness in King’s Landing and that the ugly man who tried his best to scare her was one of the best things in her life.

The story I read was an AU in which Sandor and Arya stay together for years. They stay together as travelling companions into her teen years. A relationship forms. I really enjoyed the author’s ability to write Sandor. I have seen it also described in the novel Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.

Scarlett musing about Rhett;

“The most exciting thing about him was that even in his outbursts of passion which were flavored sometimes with cruelty, sometimes with irritating amusement, he seemed always to be holding himself under restraint, always riding his emotions with a curb bit.”

His love is intense. Sansa has thought of it before, the sheer anger that reverberates off his body. In the story that I read, he was quite rough with Arya but it felt so real to read.

He would rough her up but she knew he would never hurt her. He did hurt her though, he punched her once and pulled her hair and bloodied her lip. Yet at the same time, the sexual energy in the relationship magnified what was going on. It was a very titillating read.

Did some scrounging around on the internet & found one fan who posed a cool question;

Did the Hound care for Arya as he did for Sansa? One thoughtful answer;

Not Another GOT post

#yeahitis #getusedtoit #gameofthrones #youwinoryoudie

The worst thing I can do when my husband and I are fighting is to read some Sansan fanfiction from Game of Thrones LOL I love SansaxSandor, that shit is almost canon. I particularly enjoy Modern Era stories of these two where they could hypothetically wind up together legitimately. Some of my favorites;

  1. Wait For Me
  2. Titanic Fic
  3. The Right Number
  4. To Steel
  5. Misconceptions

I have learned to read other Sansa pairings. I originally started off in the fandom shipping SansaxPetyr the most. Over time I started to feel the creepiness of it though and moved away from it.

I like Arya/Gendry fics. I have read both Brienne/Tormund and Brienne/Jamie stories. I am torn between the two. Been reading more of BriennexJamie lately. I am doing a character study on him actually but that is for another time.

I am interested in reading other stories. I have never been a big fan of Danaeryus/Jon in particular but one fic did get my interest piqued.


It features a Sansa/Jamie relationship aspect that I had not yet entertained. I both love and hate that you can pair Sansa with just about anyone if you put your mind to it. I’ve read a very good immersive tale of Sansa/Tyrion and also Sansa/Stannis. They are featured below;

A Shadow and a Wolf by Gracques
Tyrion Lannister weds Sansa Stark and everything goes as it happened in the show. However, just before Joffrey’s wedding, an unexpected event changes everything. The forced husband and wife will have to go beyond their family loyalties in order to survive and hope to win the game of thrones.

An Inconvenient King

I am interested in reading a more believable version of Sansa/Jamie. Couples I’m not terribly fond of;

SansaxJon *shrug* idk

But I am interested in a version of AryaxJon

Which character do you identify with most in Game of Thrones?


Khal Drogo, strong and confident
Dany, brilliantly smart and confident, self-motivated
Brienne of Tarth, independent, strong, self-discipline
Arya, strong, resourceful, knowledgeable
Jon Snow, broody, outcast, magnanimous 
Sansa, courtesy and suffering, picks her battles, wise, silently strong
The Hound Sandor Clegane, reminds me of my husband, damaged but self-assured
Littlefinger, manipulator extreme, mysterious, knowledgeable, untrustworthy
Lyanna Mormont, tough as all get out, proud
Shireen Baratheon, knowledgeable, kind, friendly, bookworm (Hufflepuff)
Margary Tyrell, strategist, generous, intelligent (Ravenclaw/Slytherin)
Podrick Payne, loyal
Tyrion Lannister, philosophist, knowledgeable, bookworm
Oberyn Martell, open sexuality, bisexy, very loving
Bronn, self-serving, knowledgeable, strong, resourceful
Yara, confident, leadership skills, knowledgeable, open sexuality
Sam, bullied, cowardly, bookworm

Shireen, Sansa, and Yara

I liken myself the most to Shireen. She was knowledgeable and kind. We shared a love of books. She had an innocent way of going about despite her face. That coincides with my desire to have everyone like me and be friendly. Shireen was smart enough to ask tough questions. She didn’t accept things at face value, she had reserved opinions of her own. She was mentally strong and yet gentle at the same time. I relate to Sansa because she has suffered a lot to get where she is. I know something about having to keep quiet to please others. I have felt some of the abuse that she had to endure, certainly not all. She smiles through the pain, and that’s something I’ve learned to do as well. Sansa is a survivor, a silent endurer. I likened myself to Yara in the fact that I have leadership skills and I have an open attitude towards sexuality and perhaps share her sense of crude humor.

Sam, Jon

Regrettably when I first asked myself this question, the person I identified with most was Sam Tarly. *wince* He came to mind first because of his poor self-esteem and how he was bullied and unwelcome at his own home. I was similarly ill-abused at my own family’s hands and left feeling very alone. On the flip side, I positively likened myself to him because he is knowledgeable and a book worm, turning to the library for answers.

The second male I likened myself to is Jon Snow, but that was mostly for my ability to brood.
