Brienne of Tarth Became a Blogger

In the final season of Game of Thrones, Brienne of Tarth suffered a blow. After she was rightfully knighted by Jaime Lannister, the two finally consummated their relationship — but then he promptly left her to go back to his twin, Cersei, with whom he was in an incestuous relationship, and died in his sister’s arms. Ouch.

Thus, toward the end of Sunday night’s finale, after the dust was settled and a new ruler was picked, Brienne began to work through her heartbreak in a way we are all far too familiar with: by writing about the person she loved, as any good blogger would do.

Brienne turned to Jaime’s page in the Kingsguard’s Book of Brothers and used a quill to write about his life (well, excluding all the horrible things he’s done) in a way that could potentially be viewed by her colleagues as a professional tribute. But we, and the rest of the Internet couldn’t help but wonder: Wasn’t the move eerily similar to opening up a new page in LiveJournal and attempting to navigate through difficult feelings by writing on a public platform that can be viewed (and dragged) by many?

We can only assume she’s going to do a Twitter thread of her feelings next.
