Game of Thrones Fun

Let’s say I wanted to put a spin on Game of Thrones and say what I think 🙂

Who’s Who Facts:

Robert Baratheon – 17th ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, Lyanna Stark was betrothed to him.

Stannis Baratheon – Brother of Robert Baratheon and the wielder of a sword said to be Lightbringer but his sword would only glow, it did not radiate heat like legend tells of Lightbringer.

Rickard Stark – Lyanna Stark’s father

Rickard Stark – Eddard “Ned” Stark’s father

Arya Stark – Eddard “Ned” Stark’s daughter and Jon Snow’s cousin

Aerys and Rhaella Targaryen – parents of Rhaegar Targaryen

Jaqen H’ghar known “No One” or “Faceless Man”

Samwell Tarly (Sam)- a steward and Jon Snow’s closest friend

R’hllor “Red God” – Lord of Light

Melisandre “The Red Woman” – R’hllor’s Red Priestess Melisandre has been searching for Azor Ahai, the “Prince That Was Promised,” who will fight the coming darkness. She has not always been accurate in her predictions, at first, she thought that man was King Stannis Baratheon because she could resurrect him and her resurrecting “Azor Ahai” was foretold. She wears a choker with a ruby that she uses to work her magic and change her appearance.

Facts:

Aerys and Rhaella Targaryen had a son Rhaegar Targaryen because a witch prophesied to them that a prince of their line would be reborn as “Azor Ahai” and save the world from darkness “White Walkers”

Azor Ahai will wield a sword called “Lightbringer” “hint, hint”

Azor Ahai would fight with Lightbringer but also would not fight alone but with a creature

Lyanna Stark married Rhaegar Targaryen and were truly in love

Lyanna desired to carry a blade, yet Rickard Stark forbade her from carrying a sword

Rickard Stark made comments that Lyanna had a touch of wildness in her that he described as “the wolf blood”

Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen had a son “Aegon Targaryen”, when Lyanna spoke to Ned Stark, she made him promise to take care of him and to call him his own. Ned named the baby Jon Snow and claimed him as his own bastard son.

Rhaegar Targaryen was killed by Robert Baratheon

Rhaegar was struck down with a massive blow from Robert’s Warhammer, which scattered the rubies encrusted in Rhaegar’s armor into the water. While Rhaegar lay dead in the stream, soldiers of both armies scrabbled in the water to search for the rubies.

Arya’s Favorite brother: Jon Snow “Aegon Targaryen”

Arya was trained by No One – Faceless Man – Jaqen H’ghar

Jaqen H’ghar found Arya, he positioned himself as a prisoner and when found, he knew her name. She was timid so not easy to befriend. So, when Arya saved him from the fire, he said to her, The Red God “Lord of Light” has his due, sweet girl, and only death may pay for life. This girl took three that were his. This girl must give three in their places. Speak the names, and a man will do the rest.

Jaqen H’ghar is strong, kind, soft spoken and good with a sword but also has a darkness 🙂

Jaqen’s mission was to make sure Arya could protect herself with any weapon

Jon Snow was brought back to life, reborn by “Lord of Light” through Melisandre “The Red Woman” 🙂

Samwell Tarly “Sam” gave Jon Snow the Tarly family ancestral sword called “Heartsbane”

Fun Fact:

Jaqen has a long blond almost white streak in his hair “hint”

Jaqen made comment to Arya.. “You have a wildness in you child “the wolf blood” My father used to call it 🙂

Jaqen also made the comment to Arya.. “Lyanna might have carried a sword, if my lord father had allowed it 🙂

Catching on?

Age Facts:

Jon Snow “Aegon Targaryen” age 20-21

Rhaegar Targaryen age at death 23-24

Jaqen H’ghar – No One – Faceless Man – age 43-45

Theories:

Rhaegar Targaryen’s body was never found

Is Jaqen H’ghar – No One – Faceless Man, Rhaegar Targaryen and using the ultimate disguise to stay hidden?

Did Jaqen H’ghar train Arya because she is the “Azor Ahai” that will kill the Night King?

Is Jaqen H’ghar if he is indeed “Rhaegar Targaryen” or Jon Snow the reborn “Azor Ahai”?, we know Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen born from the Aerys and Rhaella Targaryen bloodline. Jon Snow was also resurrected “reborn” by the R’hllor “Lord of Light” through Melisandre “The Red Woman”

Did Stannis Baratheon have the true Lightbringer as that sword would only give off a glow but no heat or was it simply not functioning correctly because he was not the true “Azor Ahai”, The “One True King”

Is Heartsbane really Lightbringer which would make Samwell Tarly “Sam” a descendant of the original Azor Ahai?

If Jon Snow “Aegon Targaryen” is “Azor Ahai”, when will he be reunited with Lightbringer? For Lightbringer to be reborn, a sword must be thrusted into a certain living heart, will that be Melisandre’s heart 🙂 She said she is only alive because the Lord of Light isn’t done with her and that she is to help Jon win the war and has one last thing to do… hmm

Last but not least, if Jon is Azor Ahai and is reunited with Lightbringer, who is the creature that will fight beside him? Will it be Rhaegal’s, the second strongest dragon, Drogon, the strongest dragon and who Daenerys rides or something else?

These are just my thoughts, let me know your thoughts below 🙂

NEW DELHI (AP) Indian filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma’s crime thriller based on the 2008 terror attack on Mumbai has opened in theaters worldwide.

“The Attacks of 26/11” captures three hours in the lives of two men involved in the deadly attacks in which 10 gunmen laid siege to India’s financial hub, leaving 166 people dead.

Bing: More on the film

Varma’s offering is a dramatic reconstruction of the attack viewed through the perspective of Mumbai’s police chief and the lone gunman who survived the attack.

The film stars veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar as the police commissioner. Sanjeev Jaiswal reprises the role of Ajmal Kasab, the terrorist caught after he gunned down people at a crowded railway station.

The film will be shown at the Berlin International Film Festival 2013 in the panorama and competition sections.

Revered director Werner Herzog is to be celebrated by the German Film Academy in recognition of his contribution to the country’s movie industry.

Bing: Herzog’s ‘Happy People’

The filmmaker will be honored with a lifetime achievement prize at the 2013 German Film Awards ceremony, which takes place in Berlin on April 26.

Herzog, who has previously won four prizes at the annual bash, insists he is “delighted” by the accolade, calling it “the highest honor that one can receive in German cinema.”

“Werner Herzog has not only made some of the most important and original films of the New German Cinema’s school, with several of his film titles he also enriched our country’s vocabulary,” Academy Jury president Iris Berben said in a statement. “As a visionary film artist with a never subsiding courage he has remained on the move and in addition to several great feature films has newly defined the boundaries of the documentary.”
