Kit Harington and Rose Leslie Are Engaged, and Twitter Responded With the Funniest Memes

Jon Snow and Ygritte the Wildling are the official One True Pairing of Game of Thrones. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie just got engaged in real life, and Twitter doesn’t know whether to be ecstatic or heartbroken.

Harington and Leslie were a couple on the show, and they started dating in real life in 2012. Leslie’s character Ygritte, was only around until 2014, unfortunately. Now she’s starring on The Good Fight, the spin-off of The Good Wife on CBS All Access. But while the Jon and Ygritte on-screen pairing is over, in real life it’s going great. They’ve announced their official engagement with an announcement in the Telegraph, and Harington is on his way to being the sexiest groom since the guy who paused mid-wedding to rescue a small child from a river.

They are a lovely couple, and many fans were overjoyed.

I think that GIF just got me pregnant.

Of course, some fans are heartbroken.

They were holding out for Harington or Leslie themselves.

Jon and Ygritte ‘shippers are dancing in the streets.

Fans who liked Jon Snow and Ygritte more than they like Jon and Daenerys as a couple were thrilled. Jon may be hooking up with his aunt on the show now, but in real life he’s planning a big society wedding with Ygritte.

Ygritte really was great.

Jon Snow and Emilia Clarke are not a couple in real life, so the Daenerys fans will just have to comfort themselves with the fact that aunt and nephew were last seen having hot, naked sex on a boat somewhere in Westeros.

Harington and Leslie were adorable together on Game of Thrones. Also, fun fact: They are both posh AF. Harington’s father is a baronet. Leslie’s whole family is Scottish aristocrats. She grew up in a castle, of which her parents apparently own several. Charles II of England is something like eighth great-grandfather to both of them. So let’s all hope they’re planning a very fancy castle wedding with cake, dragons, and a wedding dress made of the purest silk from Tralalaleeday.

If they avoid inviting any Lannisters, everyone might even make it out of the wedding alive.

How do you feel about the upcoming Harington Leslie nuptials? Let us know in the comments.
