Arya Stark

  1. “Snobby” A Song of Ice and Fire Readers, Maisie Williams Wants You to STFU

    "READ THE BOOKS if you don't want to be spoil—oh God, she's coming. Run away. RUN AWAAAAAY."

    Not all book readers, mind you. Just the ones who spoil things for non-book readers because "LOLOL, they're not spoilers if the books have been out for years!" You know who you are.

  2. The Women of Westeros Never Looked So Elegant As They Do In This Print Series

    Yup. They're the strong ones, all right.

    As much as we love all the actors on Game of Thrones, it's always nice to see a more book-driven interpretation of the characters we know and adore. That's why we can't get enough of these illustrations from Martina Cecelia. The Qartheen one-breasted dress! Catelyn's auburn hair! ASHA! It's too much for our hearts to take. Someone's gonna have to come and eat them raw or something.

  3. Seven Hells, Look At This Portrait of Arya Stark [Video]

    Winter Is Coming

    Earlier this week, my partner and I were playing hangman. Her gallows kept getting more and more elaborate, so in response, I drew a hasty approximation of the steps of the Great Sept of Baelor for the setting of our next round. My partner lost, and to seal her defeat, I drew Arya Stark watching from the crowd. That is to say, I drew a faceless stick figure with scraggly hair, standing behind a much larger stick figure labeled "BAELOR" in big block letters. Suffice it to say, this video impressed me. Please direct your applause toward Xiaonan, the artist at work here. (via Nerd Approved)

    Winter Is Coming

    After we posted a Game of Thrones cosplayer who looked remarkably like Natalie Dormer's Magaery Tyrell, we got several emails letting us know about Ginny Diguiseppi. Yup, that's her cosplaying as Arya Stark, Little Badass of Westeros, not a photo of Maisie Williams on set. Check out a few more photos of this talented women...

  5. A Frank Discussion of Game of Thrones‘s Rape Scene And Its Epidemic of Sexual Violence

    The Mary Sue

    Since last Sunday, the Internet has been abuzz with talk of Game of Thrones' controversial rape scene. We touched on it in our recap and shared with you the responses of the scene's director, co-writer, and one of its actors, plus A Song of Ice and Fire scribe George R.R. Martin. But we hadn't written a post specifically on our personal thoughts on scene, because...well, because we have a lot of them. There's much to unpack about rape culture, storytelling tropes, and the responsibility of fiction. So Jill Pantozzi and Rebecca Pahle, along with Geekosystem's Victoria McNally, sat down to hash it all out. Below you'll find our uncensored discussion on the scene and why, specifically, it made us boil with seething, all-encompassing rage.

  7. Maisie Williams Talks Arya Stark’s Character Development In Game of Thrones Season Four (No Spoilers)

    "I don't want people to like her anymore, almost," quoth Maisie Williams, one of the people I enjoy most on television. "I want people to realize that actually she's not the same anymore. You can't root for her forever, because she's not there to be your favorite character." But she is, Maisie Williams. She is.
