If Jon Snow had Katniss Everdeen on his case rather than a lovesick Ygritte, something tells us those arrows would’ve found their way into his heart much, much sooner. Especially because in this Game of Thrones meets The Hunger Games mash-up, Lord Commander Snow is the one wrecking havoc on the poor, poor districts of Panem. NOT COOL, JON SNOW. Not cool!
The whole thing works because, well, President Snow and Jon Snow have the same surname (wait, is President Snow also a bastard of the North? Maybe a Bolton? Because that would explain a lot). And it has the bonus of both properties having some shared characters: namely Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth/Commander Lyme) and Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell/Cressida Bonas) in them.
Although we do have a bone to pick with the video, and will say this: if Jon Snow were the President of Panem that whole Hunger Games thing totally wouldn’t have happened. Because even though he knows nothing, he does know a thing or two about compassion when it comes to leading—even if other people won’t listen to him (sigh).
Anyone else dreaming of a fandom mash-up wherein Jon Snow and Katniss Everdeen get married and rule the world? Or has that already been created in some fan fiction we don’t know about? Either way, let us know in the comments below.
Alicia Lutes is the Associate Editor of The Nerdist and would totally approve of a Panem ruled by Jon Snow. Fight her about it on Twitter @alicialutes.
