Happy Valentine’s Day! (If you’re into that thing.) This post will be talking about Game of Thrones and a very specific story of love and broken hearts. I’ll be tromping all over a spoilery plot detail, one that some might argue hasn’t been 100% comfirmed, so I’ll just let you decide if you want to keep reading.

“Promise me, Ned,” Lyanna’s statue whispered. She wore a garland of pale blue roses, and her eyes wept blood.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! I usually only post Game of Thrones-related materials mid-week, but I’m clearly making an exception. Oh, and this post will be spoilery for Season 4 and Season 5 Game of Thrones. You’ve been warned.

Spoilery? Nothing spoils north of the Wall. It’s too cold.

 

I thought it’d be nice to reminisce about Jon Snow’s first love, his true love, Ygritte the Wildling.

This post will be mentioning plot points from Game of Thrones (with the sixth season of the show looming, looming closer.) So if you’re not up-to-date on the show, this is your spoiler warning.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and even though at this time last year I mostly pointed out that romance is dead in the Seven Kingdoms, I thought it’d be okay to talk about a romance that’s not happening on the show. Since the two characters:

  1. don’t know each other
  2. are separated by miles and miles of land and sea, and
  3. one of them is probably super-dead right now.

But Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen would make such a cute couple! Y’know, he’s all ice, she’s all fire. It’d be like poetry. Or a song.

This post discusses plot points from the first four seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Consider this your spoiler warning.

In a few days, it’ll be Saint Valentine’s Day, a day when romance is celebrated (at least that’s the strong implication from chocolate manufacturers, florists, and greeting card companies) and I think now is an appropriate time to talk about love and romance in Westeros.

At the start of Season Three of Game of Thrones, Jaime “Kingslayer” Lannister is being pushed and prodded towards King’s Landing by the stoic Brienne of Tarth. With very little to do to pass the time (other than stumble along) Jaime takes the opportunity to needle Brienne about many things. Her size, her attitude, and her admiration for Renly Baratheon.

Talking about Renly and his sexual preferences crosses a line with Brienne, but Jaime defuses the situation with this statement:

I don’t blame him and I don’t blame you either. We don’t get to choose who we love.

We don’t get to choose who we love pretty much sums up the state of romance in Westeros.
