This Monsoon, Winter is coming! With the latest season coming this month, we’ve got the fans flooding the internet with all their love and loyalty towards the series, and more. With theories about what to expect, new merchandise being launched, and people taking their GoT t-shirts out of the wardrobe, you can’t miss it! But beware- with the wait that the producers inflict on them, they’re sometimes a sensitive lot. Here are the top 10 things that annoy all GoT fans.
The worst thing you can do to a fan- tell him/her what’s coming for them before they’ve had a chance to see it. With new episodes launching, they’ll be avoiding the internet like the plague and devotedly watching it as soon as they get time, but do not reveal spoilers to them, people! You might get killed!
2. When you say it’s overrated.
Love it, hate it, we’ve all watched it. If it can convince you to at least try it, isn’t it already successful? And it’s awesome. Period. If you don’t like it, do not air your opinion in front of my face.
3. When you mistype GoT and Jon Snow.
Not GOT or got, It’s GoT! I mean, how hard is it? You just have to control your Caps Lock to type it properly! And god forbid you pronounce it as “got”! And for the hundredth time, it’s not “John Snow”. No, I did not miss the “n”. It’s Jon Snow.
4. When you compare it with Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter.
They’re both awesome, okay? But just because it contains drama and they’re all popular and based on books, does not give you the right to compare them. They’re not similar.
5. When you say, “It’s all sex, right?”
Yes, we admit there’s a lot of nudity in the deal, but who’s complaining? It’s also awesome drama and awesome-r politics and gruesome scenes and backstabbing and heart-stopping moments! It’s a world of its own!
6. “It’s too violent for me!”
Did I ask you? It’s all in the spirit of the show. You’ve seen worse things, don’t just complain about this one!
7. When they use the word bastard and you get offended.
It is not a bad word. It is a word for an illegitimate child. Learn your English before you start taking offense, people.
8. When you start imagining its Indian version (there’s no parallel to it!)
No. No Hritik Roshan. No Googling to see who is a short actor for Tyron Lannister. No Amitabh Bachchan. Stop Indianizing everything, people. Some things just cannot be replicated.
9. When you do not get their t-shirt references.
If you ask me why am I wearing a “Winter is coming” t-shirt in Summer, I shall smack my forehead. Or you. Do not ask me why am I wearing a t-shirt with a throne on it. Or Jon Snow.
10. When people say the show is too long.
Then don’t watch it. But it’s too short for us, the real fans. It’s not enough time to answer all the questions they leave us with! What will happen next?
To all the GoT fans, congratulations on your reunion to the fandom and wish you a happy watching! And all the non-GoT fans, it’s just another Monday morning. Try to squeeze some more sleep in the mornings, like you usually do.
