Game Of Thrones Is Game! Wanna Play?

August 30, 2017

THIS used to have poignant videos of Game Of Thrones that were removed from the internet and I guess what I’m trying to say with THIS is watch Game Of Thrones. So, you might, as well, skip this and watch Game Of Thrones, instead. I’m kidding, get back here, you! Ok, pfew. Hi, you!

What has “normal” got to mean these days? Normal is having a major good character die in each of the Game of Thrones‘ seasons. But then, normal is boring, people! Great is so much more fun. Literally.

No major good character died this latest season and some are going to die, for sure, in the coming up next year last one, because Hey, good could not prevail bad, it would be such a “cliché”, some would say. How did we get here? It’s become easier, for some, nowadays, to assume something bad is going to happen. That’s fine, it’s supposed to, when talking about a movie, imagine what it is like when talking about life. Rather than trusting the good old-school clichés. The greatest of them all. The truth, after all. People would say Nah, this would be too good about something that’s not even impossible to achieve. The too good to triumph. Some don’t even try to fight for the too good and, instead, take the not even easy way, and say It’s life, you know, it’s only ideal in movies.

Only to figure out that this is also “a cliché” and decide on not believing in that, either. That’s, also, a way. A choice.

Ideal is why we come here, anyway, and decide on not taking the steps to it is a choice, therefore, also. An avalanche only feels right when it sprinkles joy. People stopped dreaming. By day, as Edgar Allan Poe would say. It takes the greats, the dreamers, to both help the world be a wonderful place and define what fun and truth mean.

For evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing, Edmund Burke.

The idealists versus the mediocre.

Good is so f*cking cool, let’s imagine, for a second, what great is like.

The combination between Game of Thrones, ideal love and blockbuster just turned episode 7 of the 7th season of GOT into an unique film. This latest Game of Thrones episode has the words. And words are, so easily, used, these days, that they, rarely, mean the actual things they, once, represented. They had to be appreciated again and put back on the throne, together with the truth and the fun.

All Jon Snow had to do was lie, but he didn’t. The balls to say all the things he said in front of Cersei and the world, basically, and meaning it!(?!?!)

Is that so impossible to happen these days? Why would it be? It’s only human nature, it only takes balls, not wings, and we’re not even metaphorical or something here. The courage to say what we, actually, mean, think or feel. Where did it go? It’s here, but it’s, too often, used for the bad and that’s, in fact, fear, not courage. Upon assuming the bad and not trusting the good. Refusing to see the good or, even, to believe in the good, in the first place. No matter… Anything. Anyone. Cersei.

It’s love. This is love. We all want love when we let our egos go, yet love is revolutionary, nowadays. George R. R. Martin must’ve embraced the narrative the writers of the 7th season came up with. His creative work is, ultimately, about love (throughout the whole show covered in blood and murder and cold and dark and pulled eyes and little fingers and white walkers) at its finest. The love that has been nurtured throughout had, finally, got out.

Raw. Just as all the dialogues in this 7th season finale are.

Love is the most simple thing in the world, yet, instead of living it, day by day, some take love for granted and, further more, put love on a throne that they only “see in movies”, mock love when love gives them wings and puts them on the throne, together with the truth, fun and words. In case you’re calling me a dreamer, please, watch again the dialogue between Cersei and Tyrion in this last episode. Only if you’ve seen all the GOT episodes, obviously, because only then you’d know.

Now tell me, aren’t you one, too? A dreamer. Somewhere at the bottom of your heart.

Just as Cersei is. She might have disguised herself into this strong human being, when, in fact, with so much lying and deceiving and wrong doing, she’d only revealed how weak she’d let herself be. She stopped believing in ideal and let her ego rule instead.

Just as Jamie is. Only Jamie chose to fight, he turned into the idealist he used to be. He did some stupid s*it, but he decides to take his chance on love.

It’s up to you and the way you choose.

Love is in “the peace” in the show and love is in “the little things” in life, which are never little, they’re the greatest, they’re the love, so, love is love.

Tyrion is love! Always has been.

Jon Snow is love! Always has been. Oh, Jon Snow… Everything about Jon Snow. He, at first, spoke in a certain way with his voice and his body. Then, he looked at Daenerys and he knew. She knew. It was completely unexpected, yet the energy created by these two, each time their eyes met, is a story on its own. They’re good above all, always have been, they’re strong, they’re the dreamers, the idealists, they love and love life.

Stay close to people who feel like sunlight…

I don’t think either one of them knew exactly how powerful their feelings were towards each other [until they let their talk for the throne aside] and fell in love. Just the notion of falling for someone involves weakness, it’s not something a queen does, but she feels it happening and he feels it happening for her. Both of them are on kind of an unfamiliar ground and especially because it’s with an equal, said David Benioff, executive producer and writer, on the characters.

Jon hadn’t, necessarily, given anyone any clue about his feelings, not even himself, nor had Dany (?!?!), not even herself, but when he defended her in front of everyone, that’s when they knew. The energy never lies. And this here, again, is an ideal. A possible ideal when the lovers are equals, dream the same dream and the journey to it.

In order to be able to live love to its fullest, we should all be true to who we are and who we love and, therefore, simply be and do good. Then the butterflies fly. The dragons. If we stop believing in love for the sake of love, in butterflies and dragons, what else is there to dream about in life? It’s people who stop believing that turn into cynics, so, of course, they doubt all of the ideals, starting with their own, lying to themselves, in the first place. Conform with other cynics to match what they, deceivingly, feel inside and, therefore, stop being the change they want to see in the world and this is how they, then, start to believe that bad does, indeed, prevail.

Choices and decisions. The world can trigger us, but we can’t control it, we can only control how we react to it. Or better yet, create it just the way we dream of.

Idealists… They see each other in a crowd. Feel. Genuinely. They posses this kindness that turns into power that turns into light that shines no matter what. Anyone can sense the light. Turning the back to it gives every dark feeling a chance to invade a soul. So, I can understand how it happens, it’s that I’ve never seen a reason in choosing to turn your back on the light. Theon must have seen one, but then he got wise. And to, furthermore, harm those who choose to fight the fight as a stepping stone to the mediocre life they seem to find comfort in. Littlefinger was one of them.

It only made sense for Sansa and Arya to have despised him. They’re both too much of idealists to turn against one another. In ideal love, there’s no room for blurred lines. Everything is crystal clear. Everything is out there. No muss, no fuss.

This epic episode set the terms of the game. We know who is good, who is bad. The world has, now, a chance to be a better place and this is how it’s not “only in movies”. Real life could be better or worse, it only depends on us. And the ice dragon.

Kindness is so cool, greatness is sexy as f*ck and if love is possible in Game of Thrones, love is possible anywhere.

And then there’s the humour. Up on the throne. Made of balls.

In your mailbox would be ideal, yet in your e-mail is pretty close, yay!
