Unless you've been living under a rock for the past two weeks, then you're already well aware of the majesty that is Tormund Giantsbane's ridiculous crush on Brienne of Tarth in the last few episodes of "Game Of Thrones." Look at his dopey face! This is the face of a powerless man in the face of a wonderful sword-wielding goddess.

He found love in a hopeless place.

Naturally the possibility of a budding romance between these two badass murderfriends has sent the entire internet into a tizzy, and you know what that means — lots of lots of fanart, comics and photoshops of the two canoodling (or, at the very least, of Brienne getting all flustered as Tormund attempts to woo her). You're welcome, fellow Tarthbaniacs:

Brienne and Tormund deserve to rule the Iron Throne together.

And she can carry him off into the sunset.

And they'll live happily ever after, amen.
