21 Struggles All "Game Of Thrones" Fans Understand

Winter is coming...in April once a new season finally starts.

Posted on

1. Accidentally screaming, "Where are my dragons?!" any time you get angry.

HBO

It's not a problem, so much as a thing that will alienate everyone around you.

2. Feeling a deep, spirit animal connection with one of the more "evil" characters, and being judged for that.

Like, maybe you want to live your life like Cersei, and that's OK.

3. Having a close-knit viewing group during the season, and then being without them for roughly nine months.

Can we just meet and rewatch Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4?!

4. And the pressure that is coming up with new food puns for that viewing party.

"I did Iron Scones last week, what the hell is this Sunday going to be?!"

5. Waiting years, and years, and more fucking years, for the next book to come out.

HBO

Do you think this is a game, George?! Because if it is, you're literally the only one ever winning.

6. And then developing actual back problems because of how heavy the damn books are.

NO, I will not get this as an e-book, because half my life has been spent waiting for it. WINTER HAS COME.

7. Realizing you've spent $400 this year in GoT merch.

OK, I'll stop! Although... Christmas is just around the corner, so if anyone wants to buy me these... I'm down.

8. Falling into the black hole that is Pinterest tutorials on DIY Khaleesi braids.

They never come out like they're supposed to, and you'll never get those four hours back.

9. Accidentally saying, "You know nothing, Jon Snow," to people you hate, and then having to explain yourself.

HBO

It's a thing from this show... you wouldn't understand, because you know nothing, and that's why I hate you.

10. Or trying to slip a sensible "Hodor" into group conversation and getting a bunch of blank stares back.

I'll just go? Yeah, going. HODOR.

11. Waiting a solid nine months for a new season with new episodes to air, and only being able to rewatch so many times before people think you're insane.

If you only knew how many times I've rewatched, tho...

12. That terrible moment when you're waiting for a new season to begin, but have run out of new fan theories to read.

HBO

WTF do I do now?! I need answers!

13. When you accidentally say a spoiler from the books in front of fans who have only seen the TV show.

HBO

I'M SO SORRY FOR THIS, but all the more reason for you to educate yourself... right?!

14. Having to explain to friends who are getting married why you're a little nervous about attending their wedding.

Seriously, watch "The Red Wedding" and then tell me three good reasons why you shouldn't elope. (And no, one of those reasons can't be, "It's just a book.")

15. People thinking you're weird when you refer to sexual dry spells as time at The Wall.

HBO

It's pretty accurate, TBH.

16. That inconsolable feeling of sadness when you're the first one of your friends to read a book, and have no one to talk to about it.

HBO

But, can you read faster...?

17. Having to stop yourself from screaming, "One blast for rangers returning!" every time you honk your car horn.

Two honks mean I have a LOT of feelings.

18. Having to fake reactions to scenes in the show when you've already read the books and know what's coming.

HBO

Or when you haven't read the books, and then get angry when people who have aren't properly reacting.

19. Having a new and terrifying fear of any ravens you see.

What does it mean? Is it looking at me?! IS THAT A THIRD EYE :-O

20. Having to stop yourself from rage outbursts when the TV show totally deviates from the book.

HBO

Hold up: This isn't what I signed up for, OK?! Make it stop! George, DO SOMETHING.

21. Having to hide the fact that you're impossibly jealous of Podrick, while also being attracted to him.

HBO

What happened in that orgy, though? A friend wants to know...
