This weekend’s question comes from Diogo:
If you were part of a highborn family in the Game of Thrones universe, what would be your house words?
You don’t need to be a Game of Thrones fan to play along, of course. House words are like a family motto. A few examples (from Westeros.org):
House Targaryen of King’s Landing – Fire and Blood
House Stark of Winterfell – Winter is Coming
House Hornwood of Hornwood – Righteous in Wrath
House Crakehall of Crakehall – None so Fierce
House Hightower of the Hightower – We Light the Way
House Lonmouth – The Choice Is Yours
House Jordayne of the Tor – Let It Be Written
House Codd – Though All Men Do Despise Us
As you can see from the last one, they’re not all proud and noble… though most of them are.
Mine would be “House Silva: Growing Lazy.”
Mine might be: “House Johanson: Wine? Or Tea?” (I started creating my sigil at HBO’s Join the Realm, but I had to customize it further than the options it offered.)
PS: I still haven’t had a chance to watch the new series Must do that very soon…
