The internet supported a woman because she didn’t want to attend one Game of Thrones-Themed wedding spoken primarily in an incorrect language from the series.
Posted on Reddit’s r/AmITeA**hole forum, a woman under the username u/Fluffy_Strain6713 shared her story to get the opinions of the “AITA” community. The viral post has over 4,000 upvotes and 1,000 comments.
The original poster (OP) began her post by explaining that her friend “Lexa” is getting married and plans to have one game of Thrones– Themed wedding. The Reddit user said the couple have watched the series over five times and have decorations and accessories in their home.
The OP wrote: “I’m perfectly fine with the idea of a themed wedding. I even approve of the Game of Thrones dress/costume for the wedding. The only thing I can’t get over is the fact that the majority of the wedding will be held in High Valyrian (for those who don’t know, it’s a made-up language from Game of Thrones).”
“Their wedding is also a destination wedding and I have a hard time justifying going to the effort of going to a wedding that isn’t even in real language that I can’t understand. I mentioned that I had doubts to Lexa, and she got really mad at me for originally saying I could leave before I knew it was in High Valyrian. She also sent me links to learn High Valyrian on Duolingo, and I feel like even if I show up, she’d be mad at me for not learning it,” she continued.
The OP also recently found out that the reception and speeches are expected to be in High Valyrian as well.
news week asked u/Fluffy_Strain6713 for a comment.
what is game of Thrones?
The fantasy series started in spring 2011 and aired its final season on HBO in 2019 with a total of eight seasons. Based on the book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin, most of the events of the series take place on the continent of Westeros.
Many powerful families fight for power and control over the Seven Kingdoms: Winterfell (The North), The Eyrie (The Kingdom of Hills and Dales), Harrenhal (The Kingdom of Isles and Rivers), Casterly Rock (The Kingdom of Rock), King’s Landing (The Kingdom of the Stormlands), Highgarden (The Kingdom of the Reach), Sunspear (The Principality of Dorne).
The newest game of Thrones spinoff series, house of the dragon, airs Sunday, August 21 on HBO. The show is based on the Targaryen Civil War. This occurs about 300 years before the events in game of Thrones.
A spinoff series about Game of Thrones character Jon Snow is in the works at HBO.
“I wouldn’t feel safe attending a GOT themed wedding. Who knows if it will be a red one or a purple one. NTA,” u/AdrielBast wrote, receiving the top comment from over 12,000 upvotes, citing the show’s “Red Wedding,” where many people were killed, and the “Purple Wedding,” where a main character died.
“[Not the a**hole]. There is no obligation to attend events to which you are invited. You always have the option to participate or opt-out,” stressed u/everythingistaken427.
“[Not the a**hole]. If you don’t want to go, don’t go. Just say you can’t, something came up, tight finances or whatever. Don’t criticize her wedding decisions. Your choice to have your dream wedding; It’s your choice whether you want to participate,” commented u/silverdragons505.
“[No a**holes here]. Your friends can have any type of wedding they want. And as long as you’re polite and graceful, you’re under no obligation to participate,” explained u/QueenMoogle.
U/doomygloomymillenial said, “Wonderful that anyone would have a Game of Thrones wedding… after season 8 was disastrous. All jokes aside [no a**holes here]. It’s her day to do what makes her happy. Totally understandable that you have ‘previous commitments’.”
