Game of Thrones fans know that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have been dating ever since they met on the show, playing doomed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. Though he pleasured her far better than one would think for a virgin living on a bachelor ice-flow, Ygritte eventually sacrificed herself to her cause rather than submit to the will of the Night's Watch. Sad. Luckily, he gets to have her in real life forever, because THEY'RE ENGAGED:
Yes, they published the announcement in The Times, like a normal couple. It sedately reads:
“The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire."
Fans are freaking out for a lot of reasons: that their favorite relationship for the show is getting an IRL reboot, that they have personally missed out on their chance to marry Kit Harington, and because they want to get a pun out there on Twitter as fast as possible:
Everyone loves a happy ending, and it's rare that anyone on Game of Thrones ever gets one.
