GOLDWIN SMITH HALL—Citing the immense cliffhangers and high stakes in the wake of last season, the entire Medieval Studies department is going absolutely fucking mental for the Game of Thrones season 8 premiere.
Omar Alberen ‘20, a Medieval Studies major, has been in full Night’s Watch regalia for weeks and expects this season to be fucking bonkers. “I fucking love this feudalist shit, are you kidding me? I can’t believe it’s finally here,” he said. “I don’t think I’m ready. Do you think I’m ready? Are you ready? Do you love this shit? Are you high right now?”
Faculty from the department have issued additional assignments for all students in the Medieval Studies program. Students will be required to complete 20 pages of fan-fiction and any students without 100% authentic feudal kingdom garb will be docked participation points.
Medieval Studies Program Director David Powers said “I think I’m going out of my fucking mind” before just screaming for twenty minutes. Upon finishing, he was briefly able to listen to some clarifiyng questions, before saying “Hold on, shut- wait, shut the fuck up- shut the fuck up they just released a new trailer.”
All ten students of the department plan to break into Olin’s Rare and Manuscript Collection to uncover the props needed to complete their Samwell Tarly cosplay.
