'Animalized' (GoT)
#1
This is something I did a lot when I was younger when I was reading books about (boring) human characters. I'd often assign every one of them an animal and imagine them as either totally anthropomorphic like Redwall or the Disney Robin Hood movie, or just walking around on all fours like something like Narnia. So Harry Potter was a Red Deer, Ron was a terrier, Hagrid was a mammoth, etc. (I'm sure I made a list like this when I was reading the Crucible in High School too lol)

I'm reading through the ASOIAF books just now, and obviously, my favourite part is all the animal symbolism/imagery. So I started thinking "haha what if the Lannisters were all dumb furry lions and the Starks were all dumb humanoid wolves." Then I thought, "wait, what would everyone ELSE be?" and needless to say, I got carried away

(If think of your own versions of this, by all means go for it, but this is really just a place to dump my Game of Thrones list. And trust me, this is the shortened version!)

Ignore what Mondas said WildCat, it seems like you have put quite some thought into this and it probably took some time.
