    11. Grace Poe would be Daenerys—claiming what is hers with fire and blood. In this case, her Filipino citizenship.

    12. And she has her charm, sure, but a lot of people think she's still too young and inexperienced to be a queen.

    13. Miriam Defensor-Santiago would be Lady Olenna—she may look old and sickly, but her wit is enough to take you down. She's also sassy as fuck.

    14. Bran would have a kuliti because he made boso while Cersei and Jaime are having sex.
