Gotta be Arya. I always admired her character for shamelessly being herself and pursuing her goals, and still having immense love and appreciation for the people close to her. While I wouldโ€™ve loved for the series to be more thorough and detailed about her journey to become, and be a Faceless Man, I still thought her character arc was one of my favorites. Seeing her sail off to explore the West of Westeros in the finale got me reeeaal emotional.

Cersei. I hated to love her throughout the series, and I think thatโ€™s what made her character so compelling. She was always planning something, and while usually something terrible, her strength, hidden vulnerability and ruthlessness in pursuit of her best interest somehow made her one of the most beautifully complex characters. Also, hello, Lena was perfect in the role.

Okay so, obviously the Red Wedding was horrid and it hurt like a bish, but I have to say Theon and Dany. Theon because he had finally started on his path to make up for his mistakes, and he felt like he had returned home. During his โ€œrogueโ€ period in the series, I gotta say I lost every drop of empathy I had for him. But seeing him learn and grow from all the terrible things he did, and then have his life cut so short, really moved me. Danyโ€™s death was just plain heartbreaking. First of all, I hated that D&D did that to her character. Since the beginning of the series I always rooted for Daenerys to sit on the Iron Throne, so seeing Jon (Aegon lol) take that away from her while she had Literally just entered the throne roomโ€ฆ. Man, that was so awful and shocking I cried for an hour. I really, really wish the series hadnโ€™t gone that route, but oh well what can I do, right.

As you can probably guess, the Queen of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. I could write a whole thesis on why I love love love her character but lemme just say this. In the beginning of the series she started off as Seamingly weak, fragile and powerless. It was incredible to see how when put in the right circumstances, she started truly believing in herself and her purpose. When her dragons were born, was I think one of the most incredible scenes in the series, and TV in general. Following her journey to free slaves, conguer new cities and wade through the endless schemes and betrayals thrown her way, always kept me wanting to see more. The way her faith in herself kept her standing tall and reaching for her goals, inspired me to do that as well. As said by her in season 7: โ€œDo you know what kept me standing through all those years in exile? Faith. Not in any gods. Not in myths and legends. In myself.โ€ One of the fascinating things about Daenerys, and the Targaryens in general, is the language. I remember when I first heard High Valyrian in GOT and just immediately wanted to learn more about it. I think itโ€™s amazing how Emilia Clarke learned a made-up language, and made it sound entirely like her own. I even taught myself some High Valyrian in Duolingo, cause I thought it was so cool. Call me a nerd but man these are just few of many reasons why Iโ€™d be Dany. Dany is also most often said to be the INFJ-T personality type, which I also am. I think that's one of the reasons I can relate to her so much, and feel that if I were to play her role, I'd get a feeling of familiarity and connectivity. Oh and wouldnโ€™t complain if I got to ride Drogon too!

Like I mentioned earlier, Arya and Danyโ€™s character developments were good. I liked them at least up until season 7, and after that not so much. I still think there were some changes and developments I agreed on, but all the characters definitely suffered without an ASOIAF-book to base the seasons on. I do wanna give an honorary mention to Jamie Lannister. Even though I didnโ€™t agree with his choice in the end to go back to Cersei after all the build-up to him finally realizing sheโ€™s not what he needs, I think his story was interesting to follow. For the first couple seasons he was very arrogant, cruel and annoying, and even though he was charming too, I didnโ€™t really root for him at all. After he had defended Tyrion in court and helped him escape, and lost his hand by defending Brienne, I think he really started to change and realize where he would have to continue in life to be satisfied. I canโ€™t say I agree with everything he decided to do, but I do think that his character development was nonetheless interesting and fitting.

Well I absolutely hated Joffrey and Ramsay of course, but in the long-term I think Littlefinger was the worst. He was the one who started the whole mess, which led to a huge amount of death and destruction. Basically, he was the one who started the initial war in the series. There are countless things I could mention which I despise him for. Hate him, so so much. Wish heโ€™d have gotten a more dramatic and tragic ending tbh. Unpopular opinion, but Jon wasnโ€™t that great even though he never did anything that terrible (excl. Danyโ€™s assassination). I mean yeah for the first few seasons he was bearable, but his character suffered the most in writing and depth the closer we got to the end of the series. His dialogue and character arc in season 7 & 8? Pleaseโ€ฆ

I find it kinda weird to name a character Iโ€™d have a crush on, but I guess Jamie. He was an a** most of the time, but he was kinda the same for me as Cersei โ€“ I hated to love the character.

Daenerys, like I mentioned. She worked hard, she fought through even the darkest of times to get there. She understood the importance of having allies and friends, but also that in the end the choices were hers to make, and that her intuition was the one thing she could always count on. To deserve to sit on the Iron Throne, I think one must be intellectual, confident, determined, empathetic and caring, and Daenerys was all that. Plus she had the dragons (RIP Rhaegal & Viserion), so obiously that wouldโ€™ve been a huge asset for her as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

They did Daenerys dirty. They did the whole story dirty. It was quite a shitshow, but I canโ€™t deny it made me very emotional watching each episode of the last season. Thereโ€™s a Lot that shouldโ€™ve and shouldnโ€™t have happened, and I wish they had continued the series for up to 10 seasons as planned by HBO and George R.R. Martin. It wouldโ€™ve given every character, every event a lot more depth, and we couldโ€™ve gotten an ending that was well thought through and not something that was made what feels like on a momentโ€™s notice. So, I didnโ€™t hate it, but I wasnโ€™t happy with it either. Gotta be grateful they continued the show for even as long as they did.
