The Game of Thrones opening music is stuck in my head. Life has gotten a whole lot more thrilling.

Tonight I am going to see The Fellowship of the Ring. I swear to fucking god, Sean Bean better survive that movie OR PEARLS WILL BE CLUTCHED.

Let's check on the fate of an actor who plays characters who live forever and ever in the latest episode of Game of Paddleboats on a Quiet Lake.

Joffrey is such a little fucker. Congrats to the casting department and my apologies to the actor, but goddamn, I want to punch his face.

Ned Stark gave up his love affair with Honor (did you get honor, 'cause I got honor! *brofist*) to save the life of his daughter. Welp, he kind of saved Arya more than Sansa because god fucking lord, that girl is going to be served the most delicious cake ever if Joffrey is the one calling the shots.

I'm so happy-sad that in that grimdark scene, Ned saw his daughter and was able to sort of protect her. Watch, in the next episode, she'll get run over by a draft horse.

Ugh. Jofrrey. Little shit. Killing a lord of the North, undoing the crafty plans of Cersei and his advisors to have Ned to get the fuck out of their way, riling up the Northern men, wow, so many people are going to be killed all over the nation.

As I am aware of shit that happens in the books (I haven't read them nor will I until the series is officially finished), I knew Ned's life was dunzo the moment the show started. Also? He was played by Sean Bean. That's not a fucking spoiler alert: any role inhabited by Mr. S. Bean is destined for a dramatic, stirring death. Deal with it.

Apparently quite a few unspoiled people are absolutely SHOCKED that the "lead character" was killed off and are mad at HBO. My lols are many and I roll around in their bitter tears.

Well. Maybe it'll be a warning that in the show, nobody lives, everyone dies, and sometimes you invoke blood-magic and surely set up a situation that will be happily resolved by next week.

Soft dogs for all!

OMG finale next week, everything will hurt.

You will not read them ever if you know what is good for you. HAH, people who are shocked at Sean Bean's death have no idea how bad it's going to get. Jeesh.

Also, who the fuck cares about Sansa. She's actively stupid and the actress who plays her makes me hate her even more than I do in the books. Although that stupid hairdo has a part.

I don't mind reading terrible things happening to characters. What happens is that I just learn not to care about anyone.

Doesn't Sansa do a few more awful things in the book though? I sort of pity her on the show.

I was both crying at the scene and also laughing at my Mom's "THEY CANNOT KILL THE PROTAGONIST!!!" reaction.

Really really despise Joffrey with the fury of a thousand suns. *Goes watch Tyrion slapping his nephew over and over*

The scene was amazing work by Sean Bean, really. It was tragic and beautiful, such a great idea to shoot his POV on the execution, so yeah, I felt sadness. But post-ep I couldn't help but laugh at people being wankers and whining HOW DARE YOU.

I need to find the gif of Tyrion slapping that little punk.

Here's a link to the gif.

It was heartbreaking. I was spoiled even before I read the book (I read it before watching the show but after Sean Bean got cast so...) but it didn't make it less sad. Sean's acting was amazing.

But yeah, the reactions are lol-worthy. I'm really looking forward to the filming of upcoming seasons. I'll be sure to have both popcorn and tissues handy.

As someone on the Experts GoT board at the AV Club said, if people stop watching because of this, The Lannisters Will Have Won.

I like how this show is all "Doesn't it look like pretty heroic fantasy? Except it is actually a gangster film. And in gangster films, guys like Ned Stark get whacked."

Hey, that's a good way to think of the show! I just thought grimdark medieval fantasy but yeaeh, it's totally a gangster story in its own way. The only way to rise to the top and stay there is to murder and lose every scruple you had along the way.

I knew going into this Ned Stark (and most of the cast) were goners. I just really want the people that bug the crap out of me to die already.

Sansa and Joffrey deserve each other, if they survive, or I cared.

Alas I think some of them will take a while to die. I can totally see these series ending with "monsters from the north fall upon the world, everyone dies.

I do pity Sansa. It's like she thinks she's in an Authurian story.

I've read them, my husband hasn't, and I have been very restrained. I was all "so, were you surprised about Sean Bean?" and he said, essentially, "it was Sean Bean. What could I possibly expect?"

And I used to have a Sean Bean icon, but now I do not.

See, your husband had it right! I didn't read the series and I wasn't really aware of who lived or died but once the casting came out and I found out Sean Bean was going to be cast, I thought, "wow, wonder when they're killing him off."

For him to last most of the first season is pretty good for a Sean Bean character.

There should be an icon of Eddard playing with little statues of all the sigils of the houses and a caption, "Curse your sudden yet inevitable betrayal!"

Alas, if Eddard was as smart as Wash he wouldn't have walked into Mordor...I mean, King's Landing, without a plan.

Half the fun of being an ASoIaF fan is watching these reactions from the newbies. This one ( so far has been my favorite. (warning: so NSFW as far as language goes) And I'm cackling with glee about what's still to come.

Speaking of Sean Bean, did you hear he was stabbed in the arm in a bar fight this weekend? Denied going to the hospital, just cleaned up with their first aid kit and then ordered another drink.

Man, that dude is pissed off. This is why you must learn not to love anyone on Game of Thrones. Which means I'm screwed since I like Arya and the Starks are destined for Sad Times.

I saw the report re: Sean Bean! That is RIDIC. I am glad he wasn't mortally wounded or my lj post would've been grossly insensitive. It made watching LotR last night pretty awesome.

That was such an incredibly moving scene. Goddamn, that man can act.

As for the draft horse? I am dying, reg. DYING.

Sean Bean dies so well. What a strange compliment.

Oh...yeah, I couldn't help it: re draft horse. ;-)

HA! One of my friends has the GoT theme as her ring tone. I die a little inside everytime she gets a call. *head in hands*

I would SO love having it. But I'd just want to listen it and not answer my incoming calls.

I can't not post this gif now.

Joffrey. The dude who makes everyone else look good, even the Dothraki and the northern zombies.
