If U.S Cities Were Game Of Thrones Characters

If U.S Cities Were Game Of Thrones Characters

Ever wondered which Game of Thrones character best describes your favorite cities?

107

The Game of Thrones cast is extremely diverse. So many different backgrounds, stories, conflicts, and desires. The United States is also home to a very diverse group of cities and people. I was watching S8 E4 this past weekend and after seeing all those who died, I wanted to write something that represented each of the main characters. So, here we are, with a list (that will keep growing) of U.S cities that relate the most to GOT characters. Let's get started...

1. Philadelphia = Jon Snow

The city of Philadelphia is one of the toughest cities in the country. They are always in the middle of fights, either protecting their brotherly love or just stirring up problems. You either love them or you hate them. Like Jon, they are "bastards". As a fellow Philadelphia native, I can easily confirm we fit that criterion. We are a crazy bunch of people who are passionate about everything we do.

2. Washington D.C. = Cersei Lannister

Many people probably think I have a specific reason, or person, that resides in D.C for me to put Cersei as the parallel, but I mainly put this because she has been living in King's Landing, the capital of Westeros, for most of her life.

3. New York City = Daenarys Targaryen

New York City is the most impactful city in the United States. Everyone seems to claim that they are the unofficial "capital" of the country. Everyone from outside the country knows of NYC, just as Daenarys commands practically everyone outside of Westeros.

4. Los Angeles = Joffrey Baratheon

Joffrey, just like the city of LA, is extremely dramatic. I mainly say dramatic because of Hollywood, but there is still a stigma that people feel they are a "higher-class" than others. Joffrey feels as if he deserves to be put on a pedestal. Joffrey also died in such a Hollywood way, choking on poison at his own wedding.

5. Chicago = Jamie Lannister

Jaime always finds himself in battle. As we all know, Chicago is one of the most violent cities in the country. Jamie, aka "The King Slayer", seems to be the ideal comparison for the violent Chicago city. However, Chicago has an underlying beauty to it, from Millennium Park to the Navy Pier. In the later seasons of the show, we finally see Jamie's more compassionate side, especially with Brienne of Tarth.

6. Las Vegas = Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion gambles with his life on a daily basis. I might be right in saying that he has made either an ally or an enemy with every house in Westeros. Let's also add that he loves to drink, he loves women, and I could 100% see Tyrion embracing the spirit of the Las Vegas Strip.

7. Birmingham = Sansa Stark

Birmingham, Alabama has a rich history of industrialization and change. With Sansa, she starts off as a whiny, shy girl. Yet, she consistently progresses as time goes on. She never forgets where she comes from, and values family over everything else. You have to love both Alabama and Sansa Stark for their strong sense of identity and ability to grow and adapt. Sansa might technically be a Northern belle, but she has the spirit of the American south.

8. Boston = Arya Stark

Boston, as much as I hate to say it, is the city of champions. With Arya, she is and will always be a champion after slaying the Night King.

9. New Orleans = Melisandre

If the Red Woman was exploring the American South, I think she would find New Orleans to be the exact type of culture she needs. Her mysterious aroma would blend seamlessly into a culture with a love for the exotic and powerful.

10. Charleston = Bran Stark

Charleston is one of the most historical cities in the country. As it pertains to Bran, he is the 3-eyed raven, meaning he knows all the history EVER in Westeros.

11. Anchorage = Night King

I bet 9/10 people who read this article have no idea where Anchorage is located. When you think of the Night King, you think of the north. And what's the northern-most part of the United States? Alaska. Anchorage is the most populated city in Alaska, home to over 200,000 people. Night King, who rules the north, embodies being the biggest city in Alaska. Plus. it's cold, and most people tend to avoid that state.

12. Nashville = Tormund Giantsbane

His name sounds like a small Nashville country band. He's a lil bit country, but a lil bit of rock 'n' roll as well. He also rocks an awesome southern beard.

13. Little Rock = Littlefinger

Lord Baelish came from nothing. But he was always ambitious and rose from his lowly status to become Master of Coin and even more. Arkansas has a Mockingbird as their state bird, and we see a Mockingbird as huge symbolism for Littlefinger throughout his journies.

14. Minneapolis = Brienne of Tarth

I always hear stereotypes that all women in Minnesota are abnormally tall and physically imposing. She's very tall and doesn't conform to the feminine styles that are popular with ladies in the Seven Kingdoms. Brienne has always been a bit of a pioneer for women in Westeros, and in 2018 Minnesota was named the "best state for women".

15. Cheyenne = Jorah Mormont

I chose a city in Wyoming for a few reasons. For starters, Wyoming is home to thousands of bears, which also happens to be the sigil of House Mormont. I also chose it due to Jorah's low-key personality, quietness, and devotion. The people of Wyoming are not really nationally spoken, but they are very communal with one another.

16. Orlando = Theon Greyjoy

Theon was an iron islander who ended up being raised in the north. Some surrounding states claim that Florida is the "New York of the south". I find Theon to be just that, a northerner who returns home to the Iron Islands and feels out of place and unwanted. Also, so many weird stories come out of Florida, maybe things such as having your genitals cut off or wanting to sleep with your sister, whether or not you realized it was your sister in the first place! Who's to say?

17. Newport = Margaery Tyrell

Margaery grew up in a wealthy family. Highgarden sounds like an expensive row of mansions and beauty. Margaery is beautiful, fashionable, and seems to know how to manipulate people to get her way.

18. Phoenix = Missandei

Phoenix is the "valley of the sun". It is always sunny and hot, and has an underlying beauty. Missandei was born in Naath and became a slave in Astapor. She was always a southerner, and when she went up north she struggled greatly. However, her beauty makes her fierce and powerful.

I've always been interested in any product that can get me the Jennifer Lopez-esque natural glow. I'm Indian and have medium-toned skin, so getting darker was never really the goal. Rather, I've always looked for a product that would even out my skin tone and cellulite, basically making my legs look Photoshopped.

Now more than ever we're craving that healthy, tan glow most of us only get after spending a week poolside with margarita in hand. We may not be spending an SPF-soaked summer hitting on our local lifeguards. But when we're going on socially-distanced walks outside, taking viral-worthy selfies, or just want to test out the best self-tanners for when you do finally get to show off all the bikinis you binge-purchased through your quarantine boredom, these are the best to ways to glow up, no matter your shade of skin, whether you have uber-sensitive eczema-ridden skin, or just want J-Lo glow, smooth legs.

Thanks to coronavirus (COVID-19), most of the United States has gone into its own version of quarantine. While no one loves this new way of life we're adjusting to, it's the necessity that will eventually help us fling open our front doors and frolic freely once again!

Premature thinking? Maybe. But while we're in the midst of this quarantine time, we're chatting about the most terrifying, the funniest, and the weirdest thing that quarantine has forced us into recently.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.
