    Arya Stark's Moves Have Inspired Fans In A New, Viral Challenge

    Not today death, not today.

    You know the deal, if you're not caught up on Game Of Thrones click out now because:


    We all know Arya Stark is super skilled with a blade and in the last Game of Thrones episode she proved that on the biggest stage by turning the Night King into a low budget snowcone.


    What was even more impressive is how she did it. When she jumped at the Night King with the knife in hand he caught her in air and started choking her. Without missing a beat she dropped the knife, caught it with her free hand and buried it in his chest. The whole move was smooth as silk.


    She's also done it as Maisie Williams choreographing the scene with Gwendoline Christie.


    She's not a stranger to the move as she's done it sparring with Brienne of Tarth at Winterfell.


    Every time she does it her execution is flawless.


    Well, people have been both inspired and are doing their own versions of the move and sharing it on Twitter with the hashtags #aryachallenge, #thearya, and #nottoday.

    The versions are varied and creative.
