Around the Web July 4, 2014

Are you a massive Game of Thrones fan? I bet you’re not as big a fan as this newly-wed couple. With the help of Blink Box they put on a fantastic looking Game of Thrones themed wedding. My personal favorites are the sister of the groom as Brienne of Tarth and the brother-in-law of the groom as Khal Drogo. Also, it wouldn’t be Game of Thrones without Hodor, the bride’s father.

Till death do they part...or George RR Martin.

I’m not a big fan of the Dani/John Snow combination, but hey, it’s their wedding.

Who doesn’t love Grumpy Cat? We all feel that way some times and it’s nice to know that no matter what happens, Grumpy Cat is there to show solidarity against whatever is peeving you. Of course the next question is “what could make Grumpy Cat better?”. The answer is obviously Peter Dinklage. Ok, so the picture is Photoshopped. But it is still one of the most awesome things I’ve seen in a long while.

My Hero.

Upon reflection of my last statement, I may need to get out more.

It’s no secret that Reddit is a hotbed of debate when it comes to Game of Thrones. From people going nuts about the most recent episode, to discussions about characterizations, and comparisons between book and show, Reddit has it all. What’s really interesting to look at is the shifts in the conversation as the season progresses, thanks to these helpful infographics. Percentages are based on totals in the various Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire subreddits. The biggest winner is House Martell with an almost 2% gain in popularity and despite having the Number One and Two highest drops (by percentage) Houses Targaryen and Stark still have over 11% of all flair.

If only things had worked out as well in the show.

On a positive note, the longer the show goes, the fewer Starks there are and the larger percent they each get.
