1. We shouldn’t be rude or dismissive, but one reason these memes come out is because people get annoyed by some of the ways GoT fans act sometimes. Same goes for similar memes put out about Marvel. Supposedly, a lot of people are annoyed that a lot of fandom and media talk seems to revolve around those two franchises, especially when some GoT and Marvel fans act like everyone needs to see those shows. Or like something is wrong with those that dislike those shows.

    On the other hand, it’s understandable for people to go on and on about shows they like. I probably annoy people to death on this site by using Naruto and Fate Zero examples over and over. To be fair, both stories are awesome and complex enough to be example fodder.

    I can see both sides of it, and I don’t think it’s a huge deal per se, so long as both sides are reasonably self aware and don’t take it too far.

    I dunno, I would totally send a homemade “sorry your waifu died” card with purposely crappy drawings to a friend. Depends on the type of friendship you have with ’em.

    Aside: I read these stories on Tumblr and don’t know if they’re true but kinda wish they were.

    Apparently the first time Jason Momoa and Emilia Clark met, he yelled “Wifey!” and hug-tackled her. Also when they were doing a sex scene, he came in with a sock puppet on his [censored] and she couldn’t stop laughing for 10 minutes.

What do you think?
