If you're a fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire books and you're watching the latest season of Game of Thrones, you may have noticed that Sansa's storyline is deviating ever so slightly from the source material.

Hey, Remember When Sansa Stark Kicked Steve-O In The Balls That One Time? [VIDEO]


"Sansa Stark is the worst female character on Game of Thrones," he said disdainfully. Suddenly, out of the blue, Sophie Turner appeared like the ghost of femininity-shaming past. "Valar morghulis," she whispered, shoulder feathers flapping in the spirit breeze, as her inexplicably very corporeal foot slammed into his delicate bro-balls.

Sophie Turner Talks About How Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark Is Kind of Like Gollum

Lemon cakes are kind of like fish, right?

Okay, nerd-quiz time: if you were going to start drawing comparisons between Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire, who would be Sansa? After all, there are only three major female characters in the whole trilogy. Leave it to Game of Thrones actor and number one Sansa Stark fan Sophie Turner to come up with a really twisted and awesome idea.

Walk Softly and Carry a Littlefinger: An Ode to Game of Thrones‘ Petyr Baelish

Petyr, Petyr pumpkin-eater, had a Cat and couldn't keep her.

Vile, despicable, slimy and creepy. These are all words I’ve seen used to describe Lord Petyr Baelish, portrayed by Aidan Gillen on HBO's Game of Thrones. In my estimation, though, there isn't much that's more attractive than a man with intelligence, and certainly Petyr has plenty of brains to spare. What motivates Lord Baelish to be the slick political mover and shaker he is? And why is he a character so many people love to hate – or hate that they love?

Another Day, Another Interview Where Sophie Turner Says Great Things About Game of Thrones‘ Sansa Stark

Lemon cakes for everyone!

Things I love about Game of Thrones: The theme song. The drama. Stannis Baratheon (come on, you saw that coming). The way Sophie Turner will go all mama bear on Sansa Stark at the drop of a hat. I like to think when baristas ask for her name at Starbucks, she says "Sophie. But I play a character named Sansa. And, you know, Sansa is awesome because..." And the barista just stands there, transfixed, because you know what? Sansa is awesome. And she does get too much hate.

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.

Detail Shots of Sansa Stark’s New Game of Thrones Dress In All Its Sith-tastic Glory

I will make it legal!

Several commenters in our post on the best moments in "The Mountain and the Viper" pointed out that Sansa's new duds are reminiscent of those worn by Dark Lily—Mia Sara once she goes eeeevil—in Legend. It's a fair comparison, if Sansa's version has substantially less boobage than Lily's (thank you). Others have posited Petyr and Sansa as a Sith master and apprentice. Photoshop all the lightsabers! Regardless of the cultural reference, I want this dress. If the quick glimpse we got in the episode wasn't enough for you, we have several other pics behind the cut, courtesy of on Tumblr.

Winter Is Coming

Of course he might. Gotta say, the Game of Thrones fandom is the only one where this news would be met by "Oh for f*ck's sake" rather than "Yaaaaay, more books!" Also in this post: Sophie Turner defending Sansa Stark to the haters and Emilia Clarke explaining Daenerys' emotions in her big "The Mountain and the Viper" scene.

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.
