Game of Thrones might not be the perfect mirror of real life. I mean, in reality, no one is looking to take over your kingdom, ride fire-breathing dragons, battle the dead or build a wall (wait…that maybe slightly true). But not all is fiction.
Despite the plotting, scheming and constant treachery, there are some emotions and bonds that still seem relatable. For instance, the friendships on the show. Many of these characters have unknowingly forged a strong yaari through the 8 seasons and it feels very real to us, almost like our own yaari with our besties.
And we bet, you’ll feel the same. Read on to know which Game of Thrones yaars describe your yaari with your bestie.
Yaari Type: A brother from another mother
You have built a powerful bond with your bestie over the years and that has helped you both survive the darkest nights. Despite being very different, you use your individual strengths to complete each other. You know about each other’s secrets too, even the dark family secrets. You guys are so close, they feel like a brother/sister from another mother. Ps: Your pet who is otherwise suspicious of everyone, likes them too.

Yaari Type: Frenemies
Your friendship is a little complicated. You call yourselves friends, but you don’t really like each other. Your “friendly” banter becomes into a conversational duel of snide remarks, criticism and sarcasm. Secretly you enjoy it and that’s why you stick around. You are not exactly yaars but not enemies either.

Yaari Type: That friend who’s always got your back
You don’t have to say much and yet your friend gets you. Your friend has been with you through thick and thin, summer and winter and even when you needed someone to hold the door for you. Your other friends and family trust this yaar too. They’ve always got your back.

Yaari Type: Flirting + Friendship = Flirtationship
Someone once said, “ek ladka aur ladki kabhi dost nahi ho sakte”. Some prove it wrong and some, well, live in denial while being in love with their best friend. This is actually a flirtationship where you flirt every moment you get but don’t risk anything beyond that because you fear your feelings might not be reciprocated and you may lose this friendship.

Yaari Type: Sibling turned homies for life
Siblings are the first yaars in your life. You grow up playing along but often get into tiffs too. You know the usual, “why did you eat my chocolate? it’s my chance to watch TV”. But over time, you begin to understand them better and realise no matter where you are or who you turn out to be, your siblings will come to your rescue.

Yaari Type: The Utility Yaari
Here’s a friendship type so old that it was coined by Aristotle. We’re serious, Aristotle defines the utility yaari as something that exists between two yaars only for the sake of utility. There’s nothing less sacred about this friendship though. This is the friend you can count on getting the job done if you ask for it.
