'Game of Thrones' as Children's Books Is Hilarious (Goodnight, Moon Door!)
There may be plenty of child actors on Game of Thrones , but anyone who watches the series knows that it is wholeheartedly not for kids. Other than the violence, the nudity, and the language, there's all the things that the show makes its child actors say and do; you'd certainly never see the kids on Modern Family watching their parents get beheaded or graphically choking to death in front of a crowd of a thousands. Yet the rated-R content of the show hasn't stopped fans from trying to make it a bit more kid-friendly, at least according to one of Friday's Twitter trending topics, #GoTChildrensBooks.
In the hashtag, users take famous works of kid lit and Thrones-ify them, whether that be changing a word in the book's name or just adding characters from the show into the cover of an already fitting title. Apparently started by Mashable, the game should be enjoyable to any Thrones fans who could use a little lighthearted humor before Sunday's finale. They're silly, they're fun, and some of them are pretty damn genius; seriously, why hasn't anyone made a Thrones edition of All My Friends are Dead yet?
The seven best submissions so far:
This version of Alexander could really have put any Thrones character in the title, but Tyrion just feels right.
Lysa probably read this to Robert every night before bed. It'd explain a lot.
"Weird" wouldn't be the first word that comes to mind when describing Cersei and Jamie. "Terrifying" and "deranged" seems more fitting, but we guess that's not usually the title of a children's book.
This one's meant for young readers, as it consists only of the word "Hodor" repeated for twenty-five pages.
There's Joffrey again, although this time, he's Seuss-ified. We wouldn't recommend getting this one as a graduation gift.
"Oh, just some incest, a lot of death, and that damn three-eyed raven" probably wouldn't have sounded as good, but we would've read it.
And our personal favorite:
Well, as of last week, at least Jon Snow has an answer to that one.
