D&D: we need jon and gendry to bond, how should we do it?
an intern shaking in the corner: p-perhaps… they should bond over arya stark, w-who they both love?
D&D: you idiot. you fucking idiot. you absolute moron. what a terrible idea. go get us more coffee, you swine.
D&D: how about instead, gendry bonds over the fact that his father who he never met was friends with jon’s father? it makes so much more sense
