I know, I know. I am such a Game of Thrones fan. I am guilty, OK?
I will talk about Game of Thrones again but this time about theories, you know possibilities. I have read some theories which I agree too.
Here are the Game of Thrones theories:
- About Jon Snow. Jon Snow is known as Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark’s bastard son. But the fans even I think that Jon Snow is no bastard. He might be the son of Lyanna Stark to Rhaegar Targaryen. According to what I have read, Lyanna was found in a tower, I don’t know where exactly, in bed of blood by Ned. Btw, Ned and Lyanna are siblings. Fans said that bed of blood means she had labored and gave birth. And we all know that Ned Stark is a very honorable man who will not break his vows, so he might not have any bastard at all. FYI, Robert’s Rebellion against the Mad King Aerys II Targaryen started with Lyanna’s abduction by Rhaegar Targaryen as they knew. But what if Lyanna and Rhaegar really had something ever since? Robert Baratheon was head over heels in love with Lyanna and they will be married soon if she was not been abducted, as they called betrothed. I have read another rebellion which led by Daemon Blackfyre from the House Targaryen, I don’t know why he was a bastard when he also came from the same house. Anyway, Daemon’s rebellion also cause of being head over heels in love with a woman from House Targaryen too. FYI again, Targaryens and Lannisters have incestuous kind of relationship. Because they want their house to be pure bloods. That’s how families are in medieval period. Anyway, rebellions always start with involvement of love. Well, as we know love is universal. If this theory is true, I hope that Daenerys and Jon become allies. Because Jon will be Daenerys’s nephew, and hopefully she gives dragon to him.
- About the White Walkers. This theory is made by me. As I have seen the series. The White Walker is white-haired creature with blue eyes. I think the White Walker shown in the end of season 2 is from the Targaryen. Targaryens are immune to fire, while the Others are not but what if, I don’t really know. Come what may. It’s just a theory.
- About the death of King Robert Baratheon. Well this is my theory again. As I have only seen the series and never read the book, I don’t know if King Robert is really dead because they forgot all about him how he likes his funerals to be very festive but all became chaotic since King Joffrey, who is really pising me off and not his son but Cersei to Jaime, a product of incestuous relationship.
- About Tyrion Lannister. OK, I will be a spoiler now. Tyrion will kill his father on season 4, because season 4 is the continuation of A Storm of Swords which is book 3 in the series, and I am eagerly waiting for it. He really is a bad*ss. Then the last thing Tywin said to Tyrion is “You are not my son” something like that. Maybe that is why Tyrion is poorly loved by Tywin. But why he named Tyrion with Ty? FYI, Lannisters give their children Ty in their name like Tytos, Tywin’s father who is the so-called father of Tyrion. Anyway, whoever his father is I hope he is a bad*ss too.
It is fun creating theories such as the above mentioned. I mean because you are so hooked you are kinda moving forward with the story, though the books of the series are not yet finished. Because of reading articles and watching the series, I also came upon my own theories. Hehe. So, I don’t know whether they are true or not. The book series must be finished to prove all of these which is why I am very eager to know what would be the ending of the series A Song of Ice and Fire. Well, the series on screen is kinda into some changes like some other books which been on screens too that is why I am much eager to know the book series ending than the series I am watching. I hope G. R. R. Martin will give justice to the fates of the characters. But I am very sure he will, though he is kind of unpredictable, the way he writes and I like it. And I hope he will finish it before 2020 and hopefully he doesn’t die while finishing the books.
GAME OF THRONES. Oh yes! You saw it right. This post is in favor of Game of Thrones. So awesome series, it rocks!
This past few days I have encountered the world of Game of Thrones. I was curious about all the posts in FB regarding the fourth season of Game of Thrones which was why I searched for it. I looked up and saw 3 seasons already but with only 10 episodes each seasons. I was surprised that 1 episode is one-hour long, but I tried it and I love it! I have seen it before on HBO when we still have cable back 2011 I think that is why I am familiar with Ned Stark. I become addicted to the series. I am so into the series now that everyday this week I watched 5 episodes a day and I wasn’t finished with watching the series, I did research and until now I still am into reading some articles about it. You can say that I am intimate with the series. Haha. Well I guess I am like that. When I was into something, I make sure that the details were really well sink in to me.
Anyway, let me talk about Game of Thrones from what I have gathered. Well, Game of Thrones is an epic fantasy series of HBO from the series of George R. R. Martin, A Song of Ice and Fire, wherein the first book is entitled A Game of Thrones where the series got its name. The series is set back in the medieval period where there are kings, queens, royal families, feudal lords, mythical creatures, etc. which really are interesting. Who doesn’t like history anyway? There is the continent of Westeros where also the kingdom is named after. In the first season, Westeros is ruled by King Robert Baratheon who created a rebellion against the before king who was called the “Mad King”. When the ruling House Targaryen became exiled , as people knew, and King Robert Baratheon is dead, people in Westeros have come to claim the power. The series actually started with the death of the Hand of the King who is known to be the adviser of the king. Today, Hand of the King is known as the Vice President. All over the Westeros there are different families also called houses. There are 9 popular houses in Westeros: House Arryn, House Baratheon, House Greyjoy, House Lannister,House Martell, House Stark, House Targaryen, House Tully and House Tyrell. These popular houses are the houses where the main characters came from. In medieval period, power and glory come to people first. They are power hungry people, the people in medieval, well I guess people today too are like that. And in medieval period, people are so brutal. In Game of Thrones, you really will see medieval people come to life.
The characters of Game of Thrones are unpredictable. You will not know whether you love them or you love to hate them or both. The characters like what others have said that they are so real, you can see to them a real human, can do good and bad, that is why others also said they are perfect. And I can’t disagree that the characters are real. After the first season, I became unbiased with all the characters because they are still showing their sides. But my personal favorite and I guess other fans too, is Tyrion Lannister who is called “The Imp”, “Dwarf” and “Halfman”. Yes, he is all that because of his appearance which is a dwarf, but I must say he is such a bad*ss with his tiny body. He can play along well the game of the series. There are lots of favorable characters too, and the series of A Song of Ice and Fire is composed mainly of POVs of the characters.
I have a lot of respect for the writers of fantasy books because they are so imaginative. They even create their own kingdoms, people, languages, etc. A very good example is J. R. R. Tolkien who is the inspiration of George R. R. Martin to his series. I have seen the Lord of the Rings and the first part of The Hobbit and all were great. I was so amazed with the creatures of Middle Earth especially the elves. I am into fantasy too. I like to draw elves, and they are my favorite creatures. Btw, the books of the series A song of Ice and Fire are more than 500 pages each. I only have read Harry Potter and The Hobbit but never finished any of the books. Maybe because I am a visual artist that I am more favorable with seeing than reading. What an excuse. Haha. In books and movies, you will learn different things, like believing that there are magical creatures such as elves, cyclopes, etc. which also are living in this world or parallel to our world. Whether they are true or not, it is still amazing if we open our eyes, heart and mind to the possibilities.
"Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Don’t wait. Not everyone gets the time, I’m getting. Not everyone is as lucky."
I finished reading Tuesdays with Morrie. The first book that ever made me cry. Why it made me cry? Because I have sunk in every bit of it. It was like a chocolate, every bit of it, I was indulging. Actually, I really don’t want to end yet the reading but I needed to, though I knew what would be the ending was.
I felt Morrie and Mitch, all throughout their conversations. People I knew came up to my mind when I was reading, especially myself. I was so touched with the book. The lessons it gave were priceless. I was like Mitch and still learning how to resist. I think I need to re-evaluate my life. What is the point? That’s the point! I’m just 24 years old. I can do different things, and when you say do different things, you do the things differently. I am not like Morrie, who involved everybody. But me, I am selfish, I only mind my own business. It is not for playing safe’s sake. I just think that I have problems too why would I mind others.
I love how Mitch and Morrie tackled different issues in a person’s life, like death, forgiveness, love, marriage, money, etc. I was so drawn to forgiveness. Maybe because I was too hard on myself that I need to forgive myself for being like that. It is not bad to say sorry to one’s self sometimes, it’s a kind of relief. When Morrie, as a dying man, talked about death, I was amazed that he can talk like that. Well, because if people were in the same situation like he was, they would all have the same reaction with death, fear. Fear only gotten people who take it seriously. I asked my mother about death yesterday i think, what if she knew she was dying. She answered me that she would separate herself to the world, like most people would do. Well, for me, I would like to do something different. I would want to enjoy my remaining days. But really, death is something I would not want to talk about most of the time, who does anyway. I knew that everybody will die, the only difference is they don’t know when, same as I am.
I am really thankful to Mitch Albom for writing the book. His books are really inspiring. And of course, to Morrie Schwartz, for giving lessons until he left. May his soul rest in peace.
And the importance of all the lessons that Mitch and Morrie have given is… People should change until they have the time. They never know when death will arrive. They should be humbled themselves to do good, which is rational to people.
Just to get out all this stuffs inside of me right now that are bothersome.
I just wanted to say that I am not that 6-year-old girl anymore. I am growing up. And I am likely to change. We all know that. People do change not because they are just growing up, also because they were into circumstances that made them into what they are now. I am still that introvert girl who is pretending to be an extrovert; you can say that I am an extro because I know how to socialize and you think I have lots of friends. To be alone is where I really find comfort and myself. Being alone at times makes me more creative, imagining things which I really wanted to do and have. I am trying for effin’ sake. I know that what I am doing now will define my future, hell yeah, who else will define me, of course, only I. At the end, I can only shrug off all these on my shoulders, and be back to what I am in front of the crowd.
