Game of thrones is chock-full of couples given to ‘shipping — Denaerys and Drogo, Jon Snow and Ygritte, Sansa and Joffrey, Cersei and Jamie… Uh, I think I’ll stop there.
However, the most recent episode sent fans tumbling and Twitter tweeting over what just might be the newest shippable couple to ever hit George-R-R-Martinland: Brienne of Tarth and Wildling Chief Tormund.
Because hey, think about it: Tormund’s face when he sees Brienne ride into Castle Black looking the way she does. How can you not see that?!
And the way he just bit into that hock of meat while gazing into her eyes… I can’t even. It’s a different kind of #foodporn.
Like I said earlier, Twitter just couldn’t get enough of it.
He likes big girls, and he cannot lie.

You can slice it with a butter-knife, forrealz.

Could it be meant to be?
Tormund and Brienne already have plenty in common. They're great at killing things, and they've both dealt with a bear. #GameofThrones

And think of all the happy hours of reading, dreaming up the names of their babies, and violent sobbing because it’s not a thing. Yet.
Tormund/Brienne fanfic boom forthcoming, yes? #GameofThrones
