Daily Inkling Prompt: Personal Oxymoron
“Based on your personality, what is something you would expect yourself to like, but just can’t seem to get into?”
I love fantasy. I love action. I love drama. I love betrayal. I love dragons.
From what little I know about Game of Thrones, it should be my ideal show. I’ve seen the hashtags on Twitter, read all the hype, seen all the promotional images, and have attempted to avoid spoilers… but I just can’t bring myself to watch the show, and I really don’t know why. A big part of it is not having access to a streaming service that offers it for free, I guess, as well as a lack of interest on my husband’s part.
I’ve never really watched it at all, not even clips. The only bits of it that I ever watched were over six years ago, after my ex and I broke up and shortly before I moved out of my old apartment, and even then, it wasn’t much. I guess I kind of attach the show to those memories as well.
All I really remember from the few split seconds I watched in passing is boobs, blonde hair, and blow jobs. Likely in that order. That’s it.
The only thing that makes me even want to consider finding a way to watch it is my love for Jason Mamoa. I just have no interest. I don’t know if it’s because so much of it has been spoiled for me, due to how popular the show is (and the books, obviously), or my negative memories attached to my introduction to the show… I don’t know. It has all the making for something that I would love, but I just can’t be bothered.
What do you think? Should I give GoT a go?
