WARNING SPOILERS I GUESS (if you're so behind you haven't even seen season 1 yet, what are you doing with your life).
So this is a new thing I'm doing. On my blog here. Since we already miss a bunch of dudes from Game of Thrones, and since it's inevitable that a bunch more dudes (and ladies?) will be brutally slain as season 2 goes on, I believe it's time to make a series of posts dedicated to these sweet departed princes.
Let's talk, then, about a character that I really, really miss in Game of Thrones. Viserys Targaryen. Or as I like to call him, V-Targ. "Wait what?" you say. "That creepy psychotic bastard with the over-processed hair?" YES. That one. Let me be serious for a second here guys. Viserys ticks all my boxes. He pushes all my buttons if you know what I mean. Let me break it down for you. This is what I like in a character: 1) A vaguely elf-like appearance; 2) Angsty/upset all the time; 3) Incestuous leanings?; 4) English accent; 5) SO MISUNDERSTOOD YOU DON'T GET WHAT KIND OF SHIT HE HAS TO PUT UP WITH GUYS; 6) I mean seriously misunderstood; 7) So fucked up and awful that you end up feeling sorry for him just because he's so deluded; 8) Weird bone structure; 9) Sneering all the time; 10) Cool outfits. As you can see, Viserys fills every requirement. I can't possibly express how much I just love his character. He's a ludicrously vile guy, but by the time he ends up being gruesomely and horrifyingly murdered (GOLDEN CROWN'D!), you find yourself going, "Aw. That was a bit harsh," cocking your head and tutting. Which means, of course, that he's a brilliant character and we should all mourn his passing by looking at pictures of his face.
Therefore I've compiled some visual aids to help us in remembering his life as a power hungry yet lovable douchebag. Let's take a moment of silence.
|Aw yeah do that creepy incest face you know I like.|
|"Check out Khal Drogo. My hair's better, right."|
|"God! You all suck! This sucks!" he sneered.|
|Chilling with that guy from Downton Abbey.|
|Ahahaha! Haha! Yeahhh, laughing with beardy man. Good times.|
|"Ugh, nobody takes me seriously around here."|
|"YOU DON'T KNOW ME."|
|I can't think of a good caption for this. Someone help me. HIS FACE IS DISTRACTING ME.|
