19 Struggles Only "Game Of Thrones" Fans Understand

I got 99 problems, and Twitter spoilers are one.

Posted on

1. Being attracted and simultaneously repulsed by certain (unnamed) characters on the show...

HBO

I... no, I can't, but... OK, you win, you gorgeously terrifying man beast.

2. Deciding whether to eat before or during the show, based on the amount of violence you *think* you'll see in the episode.

HBO

Oh, Gregor Clegane is in this episode? ::: puts pizza slice down :::

3. Being filled with rage when a beloved character dies, but also loving the show so damn much.

HBO

All men must die, but... THIS MAN?!

4. Wanting to use Game of Thrones phrases IRL, but also not wanting to sound like a crazy person.

HBO

5. Secretly wanting Cersei Lannister to succeed, because you know deep down she's the HERO of the show.

HBO

Her bitch face is ON POINT.

6. Wanting to read the books, but also not wanting to spoil the show for yourself.

HBO

7. Feeling downright badly for Theon, while also remembering what a horrible excuse for a person he was before.

8. The frustration that occurs when your friends are somehow still not caught up on the show, and insist on no spoilers.

HBO

But what are we even going to talk about then?! Your problems are now MY problems.

9. Becoming attached to a character even though you know better.

HBO

Famous last words. 😭

10. Feeling rage when you see GRRM do anything — ANYTHING — other than finishing the books.

But also clinging to hope against hope that HE WILL FINISH THEM.

11. Trying not to roll your eyes when someone tells you they really enjoyed A Feast for Crows.

HBO

::: FILES NAILS LOUDLY :::

12. Thinking you've FINALLY figured out how the books will end, and then having one of the crucial characters killed off.

HBO

Well, that solves the mystery of how smart I am. (Spoiler: Not very.)

13. Wanting to see the dragons fly, but also not wanting to see anymore burned children.

HBO

Ugh, that dungeon is so dark but also... STOP IT.

14. Having to forcibly keep yourself away from social media every Sunday so you don't get spoiled.

Alright... officially signing off twitter. Too many #gameofthrones spoilers for my comfort...

15. The need to hum the theme song wherever you go, but also the need to not get dirty looks.

HBO

Hum hum hum hum HUM hum, hum hum HUM hum, hum hum HUM hum, hum, HUMMMM HUMMM...

16. Harboring the darkest secret of all: You. Miss. Joffrey.

HBO

THERE, I SAID IT.

17. When you have to fight the urge to yell, "MORE WINE!" when you're out to dinner.

HBO

"Drink."

18. Not being a book reader, and regarding your book-reading friends warily every season of GoT.

HBO

Why do you look so concerned right now? WHAT DO YOU KNOW THAT I DON'T?!

19. And the biggest dilemma: Hodor. Hodor? HODOR.
