A More Accurate Game of Thrones House Quiz

I didn’t like any of the ones I saw online so I made my own. Because like, really? If I like cold places I must belong to House Stark? Being a Stark is about being brave and honorable, and you can very much be that even if you live right next to the fucking Equator. In the same way, preferring dragons to wolves doesn’t make you a Targaryen. I’m pretty sure almost anyone would prefer a dragon to a wolf because a dragon is magical while a wolf is not. Anyway… feel free to reblog with your own answers. I’d love to know which House you identify with! ;)

HOUSE BARATHEON

[✓] You’re confident that at least three of your friends would take a bullet for you.
[✓] You think justice is a hundred times more important than mercy.
