"Fire And Dough" (via reddit)


Look, I'm not a guy who wakes up and says "I'm going to write about cookies today." I write about tough-guy things, like herds of ducks crossing the road.

But I can't ignore how totally kick-ass these cookies baked by a redditor's sister are. If you aren't familiar, these are the House sigils and Words of the major families in Game of Thrones. Here's a list of which signs belong to which House, in case you're not a huge nerd:

(From left to right, top row first)

1. Gold lion on a red field, "Hear Me Roar": The Lannisters. As Maester Luwin tells Bran Stark way back in Season 1, "A Lannister always pays his debts" is actually just a catchphrase, not their Words.

2. Spear through a sun on gold field, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken": House Martell, the family of the late, great Prince Oberyn. Also, their capital is called Sunspear. Their Words come from the fact that they're the only one of the Seven Kingdoms that resisted the dragons way back when.

4. Fish over a river, "Family, Duty, Honor": House Tully, Catelyn Stark and Lysa Arryn's family, also the Blackfish and Catelyn's piss-poor archer of a brother, Edmure.
