Arya Stark is a Jedi

So I just finished watching Game of Thrones season 1 (finally, I know) and it was awesome and looking forward to season 2. So far, my favourite character, by far, is Arya Stark (well my 3 favourite are her, Daenerys and Tyrion, but Arya is my favourite overall) because she’s very much like some of the Skywalkers in Star Wars. Like Luke Skywalker, she’s a rebel in that she wants to be something more than what she is now. Though she was of high class because of her family and Luke and his aunt and uncle were simple farmers on Tatooine during Imperial times, both Arya and Luke want to leave him and go on their own adventures. Because of certain tragic circumstances, both are able to do so and along the way are trained to be warriors - Luke is of course trained by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, whereas Arya was trained by Syrio Ferel and The Hound (both had two mentors and yes I do know Arya travels with The Hound in later seasons). In fact, in the season 1 episode ‘The Pointy End’, Syrio tells Arya as their training ‘watching is not seeing’, which very much reminded me of when Kenobi told Luke (as he was training with the remote on the Falcon with his lightsaber) ‘your eyes can deceive you, don’t trust them’. And they also share something similar regarding their fathers, because as both their fathers were warriors, so to do they want to train and become like them. When Syrio tells Arya to catch the cat, that reminds me of simple tasks Yoda instructed Luke to do on Dagobah. Also, both Luke and Arya go through a progression arc where they get more mature and stronger, both internally and physically. And from what I can tell, she wants to kill Joffrey when she has completed her training as a warrior (I saw a clip of her and The Hound talking about it). This reminds me of Jaina Solo, when she was trained by Boba Fett, an experienced yet rogue-ish badass who isn’t one of the good guys (unless The Hound is, but he doesn’t necessarily strike me as one yet, so if he is, I apologize if I got that wrong). It also reminds me of how Luke wanted to defeat Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back because he wast old his father was killed by him, like how Joffrey had Arya’s father killed (the difference of course being Arya was present when the villain killed her father). Honestly, I’d love to see a fan film or fan fiction or something where Arya, just for no reason other than she’s so fucking cool and awesome and badass, has a freaking lightsaber. That would so cool!!! :D
