And let’s face it, HEAs could happen. One thing for GOT – plenty of potential romantic heroes. Can you imagine Khal Drogo on the cover, gazing moodily out into the distance under the banner ‘The Dothraki Horse Lord and his Stormborn wench’? (Here’s a picture, in case you need help with the visualisation), an erotic tale of bondage and domination.
So many options, when you come to think of it: You’ve got the wounded hero, Jaime Lannister. The young apprentice turned hero, Jon Snow. The everyman wiseman, Ser Davos, looking for a third or fourth chance. The abandoned sell-sword, Darius, who gave up everything for beauty.
But, seriously, there best be some sort of something happy with Tormund and Brienne. Really.
