I haven’t been much use these past few days. To be totally honest, all I really feel like doing lately is watching House of Cards😛 The hubs and I just picked the show up last week but we’ve been watching for hours every night, so we’re already on the third season. No spoilers, pretty please!

Despite my new obsession, I did manage to tear my eyes away from Frank Underwood for a couple of minutes to watch the new trailer for season six of Game of Thrones!  I’m beyond excited, you guys. Since I’m so stoked on all the Game of Thrones awesomeness AND in honor of International Women’s Day (which was yesterday, I’m way behind on the times here), I’m dedicating a Geeky Goodies post to my favorite khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen!

I love Dany for many reasons. She’s a compassionate woman, but she’s strong-willed and not afraid to get her hands a little dirty for the good of her people. Sure, she makes mistakes, but who doesn’t? She’s had to deal with a lot of crap during her short life, and I admire the fact that she hasn’t let any of it break her. She’s stronger than ever and she knows what she wants, and I think she’s just fabulous. So here are a few of my favorite Etsy goodies, inspired by the Mother of Dragons herself<3

    • Heck yeah, me too! I think if I’m being real with myself, Tyrion is more my spirit animal:P But I think Dany is such a strong character and I’m definitely rooting for her!

    I absolutely love her – she’s one of my favorite characters on the show.

  2. Ummm I do not watch Game of Thrones anymore for personal reasons but House of Cards….that is a completely different topic. I love that show we just binged the enter 4th season. I was sick all weekend and watched all the episodes over the course of the weekend. Let me just say the end of season 4 is just wow! Just Wow! And I love that the Professor from Sherlock is Petrov in House of Cards! He is a great, great actor! Amazing baddy!

    • I haven’t gotten to Petrov yet but I’ve read about him and I think he’ll be showing up soon! I honestly never thought I’d like a show about politics but man, this is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen!!

      • I have to agree. My husband talked me into watching one episode and I was blown away! Really great show! Just amazing!

    • It’s gorgeous, right?! There are so many cute posters of her, but I love that this one has one of her badass quotes:P I can’t wait to see what happens with her!

    • What the heck?! Girl, get on that!! 😛 I put off watching it until after season three ended. I just didn’t think I’d like it, but when I did start watching it…I just tore through it. It’s soooo good!

  3. Love that poster!! Can’t wait for Season 6. Also, absolutely love House of Cards too. We are finishing up Arrow and then plowing into Season 4!

      • My honest opinion? It’s okay. It has a lot that I really do like, but many things I don’t.

        • Oh yeah? Hm, what don’t you like about it? When I first tried to watch the pilot episode I thought it was a little boring and haven’t tried it again since. Maybe it’s just not for me after all:P

          • I really liked Season 1, but from Season 2 on there are what feels like a lot of inconsistencies. I can’t really get into it to much without massive spoilers haha, but timeline/story-wise, a lot of things don’t line up. Plus, I’m so annoyed at some of the romances happening…they just feel like fan service and that two people are being put together only to have them break up later and cause drama and that bugs me.

          • Oh man, inconsistencies drive me crazy! They just nag at me, haha. I guess I’ll give it another try, but I always hate forced drama=P

  4. Oh man, Dany and Sansa are my favorite ladies from Game of Thrones, and I’m beyond excited for the new season. I love the little illustrated brooch!

    • It’s beyond adorable, right? And I love Sansa too! I couldn’t stand her at first but she’s grown into one of my faves. Can’t wait to see what happens to everyone!

  5. House of Cards is sooo good. I haven’t had a lot of time to watch this new season, but I can tell from the first episode it’s going to be awesome. I’m also stoked about the new GoT season. Dany isn’t my favorite character but does have some of my favorite quotes. I’d be all over that mug.

    • I think she’s super quotable, for sure. Just a strong, badass lady<3 And House of Cards is definitely becoming one of my and my husband's favorite shows of all time!

  6. Phoenix from DesignGenes. Thanks for including my Dany mug! This list is top notch <3 Dany is so badass but Arya is by far my favorite. Can't wait to see her just in 20 days!

    Hergeekerians… (haha sorry I had to) what's your favorite GoT quote you want to see on a mug??

    • No problem at all, Phoenix! It’s such a fantastic mug, I just wanted to show it a little love<3 Arya is one of my very faves too, and I love the 'Stick em with the pointy end' mug! I loved when she said 'I don't want to be a lady' …I'd drink coffee out of that mug, haha!
