    The most loyal of lady knights with the Kingslayer, and somehow, they understand one another.

    Arya & the Hound

    The youngest of the Stark girls paired with Joffrey's Hound. They go together like oil and water, or do they?

    Tyrion may not be a great warrior, but he sure did find himself one! And the humorous banter between the two should never end.

    Tyrion & Varys

    On the face of it, you wouldn’t think these two would ever be homeys but on many levels, it works. Both are extremely intelligent, strategists, and outcasts. Biggest difference; Tyrion’s penchant for the drink and the ladies. We’re not sure if Varys has any vices besides being the ultimate chess player in the Game of Thrones.

    Davos & Shireen

    Even though these two are very different characters, they seem to have similar intentions and therefore, make an effective team.

    Jon Snow & Sam Tarly

    They couldn’t be any more different yet they are a buddy spinoff waiting to happen. Sam is the brains. Jon the smoldering brawn. But they both find their courage when called upon. And they both have a thing for wildling women.
