    Sansa & Ayra: Tales of Sisterhood

    Sansa & Ayra: Tales of Sisterhood

    Despite the disappointment from many fans of the Game of Thrones TV show, one thing that a lot of people seem to be happy with is Sansa being Queen of the North and Ayra being alive. A lot of fans are pretending season eight doesn't exist and that their favourite character is sitting on the Iron Throne drinking wine. The world has enough negativity as there is, so I wanted to make a small tribute to two of my favourite characters that survived Game of Thrones: Arya and Sansa Stark.

    How 'Game of Thrones' Changed My Perspective on Life

    How 'Game of Thrones' Changed My Perspective on Life

    OK, so what's with the Mountain and the Hound? Where are their parents? I want to know how they were raised. Why so much hate? Besides the fact that the Mountain burned the Hounds face in their childhood. Why are they so angry? So many questions I wish can be answered.

    From Beyond the Wall to King's Landing

    From Beyond the Wall to King's Landing

    I have traveled. I have crossed the length of the Seven Kingdoms. I have been beyond the Wall, seen the Iron Islands, stood in the highest tower of Winterfell, walked the streets of King’s Landing, and sat on the Iron Throne. Game of Thrones has changed my life, because it inspired me to travel overseas to Europe for the first time. I spent roughly six months there, mostly alone, visiting Game of Thrones filming locations, and other incredible wonders. And I managed to do it all without ever getting on an airplane.

    'Bran' You Believe It?: How 'Game of Thrones' Has Changed My Life

    'Bran' You Believe It?: How 'Game of Thrones' Has Changed My Life

    It's been a long road of slaughter and Starks, Baratheons, and beheadings, Lannisters and loss, Greyjoys and goodbyes, but HBO's Game of Thrones has finally come to an end. While an article on how David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' fantasy epic changed your life might seem a little cliché to some, it's one that's a little closer to home for me—putting it as bluntly as Lady Olenna, I literally owe my writing career to the Seven Kingdoms.

    May, 2016. It was the penultimate week of high school, and Mrs. Scallon had one last project to assign my AP Psych class before the majority of us graduated.
