Several times throughout the events of Game of Thrones Arya Stark asked:

"What's west of Westeros?"

Well now we know.

It's Maisie Williams as a guest judge on RuPaul's Drag Race UK henny!


Don't you worry, no GoT spoilers are going to be found in this article.

Now that George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy has come to a close, Williams is wasting no time preparing for a new battle for the throne. However, this time it's The Rhinestone Throne.

The news broke on World of Wonder's Instagram account with the following post:

And every glamazon in every house from Lannister to Targaryen to Stark was shooketh.

Fans of Drag Race and Game of Thrones were quick to revel in their excitement and let the world know they are ready for Arya to slay.

Fans of both series were posting comments like:

While the BBC posted a rather Targaryen comment:

And some merely just came to show Williams some love:

Needless to say, the news is being met with widespread excitement.

Even Williams herself can't contain her enthusiasm. She has been a fan of Drag Culture for some time now and has been able to find the intricate beauty within it.

In an interview with BBC, she was quoted saying:

"What I love the most about drag is the story of the drag queen behind the facade."
"I think that so much of drag comes from a place of real pain and seeing how that transforms into a character is so interesting to me."
"I love that about art and about drag."

But now we have to ask ourselves the most honest questions:

Is the fight for the Rhinestone Throne going to be as difficult as the fight for the Iron Throne?

Is lip syncing for your life going to be as scary as fighting the White Walkers?

Are the queens going to form alliances like the different houses of Westeros?

Only time will tell.

But if there's one thing we can be guaranteed by any collaboration between RuPaul and Maisie Williams, this upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK is going to be a wild ride full of tears, battles, and fire.

We can't wait to see it all go down.

It's easy to get caught up in the past.

When determining how to spend our life in a way that feels worthy, many place a heavy emphasis on experiences. We want to die with scars and stories.

Ideally, a teacher should take the job because of a genuine interest in helping students, furthering their education as well as their self-development. Of course, it's not as simple as that (administrative issues aside). Unfortunately, there are some teachers out there who aren't cut out for the job––and they even have a mean streak when it comes to their students. The effects this can have on the learning process are dire.

Teachers don't get paid well, and they're well aware. Many stick with the job because they have a passion for teaching; many others stick with the job because of the position of inscrutable authority it offers them over helpless students.

People shared their experiences after Redditor Ara-Rat asked the online community,

"What did your teacher do that made you call them 'the worst teacher ever'?"
