Fan gives a Night King-twist to the end of Game of Thrones

The shock of the Game of Thrones ending was too much for some of the fans; who labeled it with tags like simplistic, rushed, and bizarre. The backlash was so much that a petition to remake the final season had started doing rounds; which surprisingly gathered about a million signatures. We cannot say that we were completely happy with the route that the last season took either; but yes, we were fine with the final position of most of the characters. Sadly, the Game of Thrones we’ve known for the entire last decade won’t come to us anymore. However, we could hope for more of Westeros in the upcoming prequel, House of the Dragon, and other spin-offs, if & when they happen.

But, a few fans of the series have been doing some pretty amazing edit work lately. More than a year after the finale of season 8, a fan called “Art of Ice and Fire” (@ArtofASOIAF) posted an alternate ending-edit on Twitter. It features the Night King and his ice-breathing Viserion right towards the end in King’s Landing.

We all remember how the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen went ‘Mad Queen’ over the largely innocent population of King’s Landing. Most of us could believe that the heinous act would well have suited the Night King; had he reached the capital city! Moreover, it serves the myth of the White Walkers much better than a curt pack up in the middle of the season. ArtofASOIAF gave us exactly that in his twelve-second clip, where Viserion is burning King’s Landing cold; while the Night King gets right behind Cersei through her chambers in the Red Keep. “The Night King deserved better!”, Art of Ice and Fire wrote, but we feel Cersei deserved better too. Though we’re not saying that dying in Jaime’s arms was any less, yet a final confrontation with the Night King would have been a great last note in her dark fate.

Fan gives a Night King-twist to the end of Game of Thrones

We can’t change what happened, but everyone’s free to imagine a different end to the wonder that was Game of Thrones. The author, George R.R. Martin has already hinted at a slightly different ending to the saga. We don’t know how it would take place but it’ll be in the last two books of A Song of Ice and Fire series. It’s all in the future, but it is coming, just as sure as Winter was!

Check out this interview of a young George R. R. Martin shared by the author himself

Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin is one of the most celebrated authors of the present generation. Several of his novels are best selling books all over the world, and of course, the TV adaptation of his A Song of Ice and Fire broke all records in TV history. He recently shared a video of himself on his blog Not A Blog, where a younger version of him is seen criticizing the sci-fi genre for being too predictive.

The interview was with the University of Calgary’s campus TV station NUTV. “I don’t think anybody reads science fiction in order to find out what the future is going to be like,” he said. “If they did, they’d go crazy. For every right prediction in a science fiction story, there are a thousand terribly wrong predictions.”

“Any literature is written for the contemporary audience…It’s meant for the audience here and now and it’s only to the extent that it speaks to that contemporary audience that it is successful or it is a failure.”

“I don’t remember that hair,” he writes on his Not a Blog. “My hair was dark brown when I was young. When I got older, it went to gray and then white. Judging from this clip, I guess 1991 was when it changed, but I don’t ever recall it being half-and-half like that, or having a dark beard with white hair. But I guess I did.”

Jason Momoa dedicates his Dune fight scene to Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke

Jason Momoa dedicates his Dune fight scene to Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke

Game of Thrones was a beautiful journey for the cast and the fans alike. It was a show like no other, breaking records and gaining unprecedented popularity. The cast made lifelong relationships with each other. Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke may have played a couple on-screen for a little time on Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen, they have been great friends behind the screens in real life. Momoa recently shared a behind-the-scene training video from Dune, and he dedicated one of his badass fight scenes to Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi.

Momoa shared a new behind-the-scenes video today about his role as a loyal soldier of House Atreides, Duncan Idaho, in the upcoming Denis Villeneuve movie. It’s short, but sweet, focusing less on Idaho’s character and more on how Momoa prepared for the character’s major fight sequences in the film—where Duncan single-handedly goes up against swaths of men, carving a path through their shields and armour with his twin daggers.

But perhaps the cutest aside is that just as Momoa prepares to go in for filming on one of his big fight scenes in the first movie—battling the forces of House Harkonnen hand to hand in a scene glimpsed throughout the trailers—Momoa casually dates the footage, by saying that he’d just watched the Game of Thrones series finale the night before. We’re not left to wonder what exactly the former Khal thought of the series’ end, but he does offer an inkling that he was perhaps not too pleased that Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen didn’t avoid Momoa’s own grim Thrones fate in the end—going into filming the battle with a simple “This one’s for you, Khaleesi!”

Game of Thrones fan creates real-life version of Beric Dondarrion’s flaming sword

Game of Thrones fan creates real-life version of Beric Dondarrion’s flaming sword

Game of Thrones had some of the most iconic weaponry in television history. They have been turned into props and merchandise and are quite sought after. But there are some weapons that have seemed quite impossible to make, that is, until now. Remember when the character Beric Dondarrion used a flaming sword as his trademark weapon and wielded it against the Hound in season 3? He used it against the army of the dead in season 8 as well. A fan has managed to bring fantasy to life, after making a real-life replica of the sword, along with the flames.

YouTube channel Faraway Forge posted a video of the full construction of the sword step by step. In the video below, the man takes you through each and every step of the process all the way to the big flaming final product.

The video shows the full process of making the sword, from start to finish. It appears to have been coated with some kind of material film that supports combustion for longer periods of time. It is truly amazing to watch such a beautiful creation come to life.

What do you think of the real-life replica of the fictional weapon? Talk to us in the comments below!
