If you thought Brienne and Tormund's relationship would be the only potential Game of Thrones romance you'd become obsessed with this season, then think again. Because "Battle of the Bastards" wasn't just about an epic battle of good versus evil that will live on in infamy. It was also the start of a potential love story between Game of Thrones ' Daenerys Targaryen and Yara Greyjoy. Seriously, the chemistry that was radiating between these two characters was off the charts and only grew more pronounced as the scene progressed. (If you listen really closely, you can almost hear the pounding of the keyboards as a million new fan fiction ideas are being born.) But will Dany and Yara ever hook up on Game of Thrones ? I honestly wouldn't rule anything out at this point.
I mean, we're talking about two badass female rulers who have just created a powerful alliance together. Who knows where things could go from here? Yara certainly seemed open to the idea of mixing a little pleasure with business, and it wasn't as though the Mother of Dragons scoffed at the idea. In fact, she herself seemed very impressed and even taken with Yara's sassy demeanor and admirable confidence. If Theon had been the only one negating here, I doubt things would've worked out the way that they did (with Dany agreeing to give Yara the Iron Islands back if they back her claim to the Iron Throne), so it's definitely not out of the question this could lead to something more happening between the two of them. And if Twitter is any indication, it's something that fans would welcome with open arms...
And just in case that in itself isn't enough to fully encapsulate how much love viewers have for these two ladies, there's already a potential 'shipper name circulating the Twitterverse: Yaranerys.
I gotta say, folks, I don't hate it. In fact, I've never not hated something more. But that's one of the many great things about Game of Thrones. Here we have two characters who have never come into contact before and now after just one scene together, I can't imagine a world without this unstoppable team up.
Basically, Season 6 has definitely been a season of surprises, especially in the relationship department and I am so not complaining about it. Now if we could just get a double date to happen between Brienne, Tormund, Dany, and Yara, then I will officially have lived my best life. Your move, writers.
