Game of Thrones season 3 is currently underway (finally), and there's no doubt, at least in my mind, that it's one of the best shows on TV. The characters are so compelling, the plotlines so twisted and shocking, there's action, violence, sex, drama, comedy, Tyrion ... one simply couldn't ask for more in a series.
Not to mention the fact that everyone who stars on the show happens to be ridiculously good-looking.
How can you not have a massive crush on Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys, or Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow, or Richard Madden, aka Robb Stark, or Lena Headey, aka Cersei Lannister, or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka Jaime Lannister? Well ... needless to say, one woman took her love of Game of Thrones and its characters a teeeeeeeny bit too far with an absolutely hilarious Craigslist ad.
Here it is in its entirety:
I am an avid fan of George R. R. Martin’s series Game of Thrones (both the books and the show). I have recently purchased a replica of the Iron Throne as seen in the television show, and need a partner to play out an elaborate fanatsy.
In my fantasy, I am Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, and Rightful Heir to the Iron Throne and the Seven Kingdoms. After crossing the Narrow Sea and defeating the forces of Westeros, it is within my power and right to slay all of those who betrayed my family and denied me my rightful place for so many years. The most vile enemies of house Targaryen, House Stark and House Baratheon must pay the highest price. All of those who fought against the Mother of Dragons are slain -- all except one. When I come to Robb Stark, out eyes lock and something moves inside of me. I realize I need to have him, want him, and I can tell he is thinking the same. I order my guards to throw him in the dungeon and later that night, I have him brought to me, in the throne room. There, on the Iron Throne I’ve so recently won, I make wild and passionate love with him, repeatedly.
Please only respond to this post if you look like Robb Stark! I would appreciate pictures, but please, no names. In order to stay as true to the fantasy as possible, I ONLY want you to refer to yourself as Robb Stark. You will need to provide your own clothing. Please keep in mind that you will have recently participated in a battle and been thrown in a dungeon, so you will not be wearing your nicest furs.
I’m looking for a Stark in the streets but a wildling in the sheets.
Omg. "A Stark in the streets but a wildling in the sheets." Mind = blown. And how crazy is it that she doesn't even want to know the guy's real name. That doesn't sound too dangerous or anything, does it? I wonder if email@example.com is currently available for those of you who are blessed with Richard Madden's strikingly handsome mug.
Talk about someone taking their love for Game of Thrones ... and Robb and Daenerys ... to a really, really weird, some might say disturbing, level. (And, come on, any true fan of Game of Thrones knows that there's no chance in hell Daenerys would hook up with Robb. It's Drogo, her dragons, or bust. Just ask poor Ser Jorah.)
But to each their own. Whatever turns ya on. Right? Still, you gotta admit, this is oddly and awkwardly comical.
And it's a tad hard to tell how serious this woman is -- like if she actually has a dungeon and replica of the Iron Throne (the thing costs $30,000) in her possession. Can't imagine the Iron Throne being the most comfortable thing to have sex on, but you have to admire this woman's imagination and how ... intricate ... she wants this fantasy to be. Am I sensing some Fifty Shades of Grey-style Game of Thrones fanfic becoming the next big thing? Perhaps -- as long as Robb gets his outfit right.
What do you think of this ad? Harmless fun or really crazy?
