Game of Thrones Season 7 just ended. If you’re an avid watcher of the famous television series, have you ever wondered what their lives would be like if they were college students? Let’s try to imagine what it would be like if they were dying to wear the graduation gown instead of the crown.
Cersei is the brilliant student running for summa cum laude. With her cunning personality, she can make her professors biased towards her enough to give her a high grade. Also, she bribes everyone to make her the student council president.
The underdog and the one you didn’t expect to become successful. She might not have shone brightly during high school, but as soon as she entered college, she promised to soar high with flying dragons —err, flying colors. She joins different organizations to make her name known, and works her way to the top of the class.
Tyrion is the charismatic class clown who never fails to brighten (or ruin) a person’s day. His jokes are funny to some, yet insulting to many, which is why he finds himself in the guidance office most of the time.
He enters college without knowing anything, or without having any idea what it would be like. He gets bullied on the first day of school for being a show-off and gets teased for coming from an expensive high school. After learning to keep his feet on the ground, he finally makes friends and continues to become a promising student.
Nobody would want to get in the way of Joffrey. He is a bully who picks on people who are smaller than him. He is not afraid to get in trouble in school because he knows that his parents will handle it in a flash.
No one can make heads turn on campus as much as Margaery can. Everybody likes her because besides doing well in the classroom, she doesn’t skimp on extra-curricular activities like charity work. With her beauty and brains, she is one of the top contenders in the school’s beauty pageants.
The sly and devious Petyr has his connections and he wouldn’t think twice about using it to make his life easier. He has already used his network to enroll in classes without falling in line, so don’t be surprised if he offers to trade the exam’s answer sheet for your money.
The certified ‘gossip boy’. Want to know if your crush is already taken? Ask Varys. Wondering why your classmate skipped class? Varys probably knows why. He has so many stories to tell that he might as well create a one-man team for the official student publication.
The White Walkers are the ‘ghost students’ who stay at the back of the class as if there’s an invisible wall dividing them from the rest. Nobody knows their name or how to contact them for class announcements. They are rarely seen that some of the students don’t even know that the White Walkers exist.
What do you guys think? Were you able to relate to any of these characters?
