Over the course of my 20-something years on Earth, I've found that I live my best life when I abide by the fictional ones on my TV. Now, I don't mean in all instances. There are some things I see on my screen that should never, ever be duplicated (and by that, I mean any and all seasons of American Horror Story). But, that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a well written and well delivered sassy quip from time to time and apply it to my very own life, right? Speaking of, you know which show has sass in spades? The HBO fan favorite, Game of Thrones.There are plenty of hilarious, sassy, and flat-out amazing Game of Thrones responses perfect for any situation, and I'm ready to use them all.
In the midst of killing each other, fighting off White Walkers, piloting domesticated dragons, and drinking way, way too much wine, the Thrones characters have provided some of the absolute best GIF reactions that the Internet has ever seen. Yes, I am making that blanket statement, and you can fight me on it or challenge me to a duel or whatever. But, what's especially great about the material that GOT gives is that it is so versatile. You can apply the plethora of reactions to your everyday life and it will always feel right, regardless of the fact that they live in a mythical world under vastly different circumstances than we regular folks.
Here are 18 GOT reaction GIFs for any situation:
