HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones hasn't found much time to focus on building up romances between its characters, especially amidst all of the show's political intrigue, ice zombies, and murderous betrayals. But even when it has, few of the show's romances have resonated with viewers quite like Jon Snow and Ygritte's all-too-brief coupling in the third season.
Most of that is thanks to the chemistry between actors Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who made watching Ygritte and Jon flirt, fight, and fall in love a joy. And it looks like that chemistry continued, even when the cameras weren't rolling. They've been an item since 2012.
Now, following the announcement that the two were officially engaged in September 2017, here's everything you need to know about this fictional romance come true. As you might imagine, the Internet has some thoughts to share on this news.
