You knew it was only a matter of time. What do you get when you combine Game of Thrones with the pure silliness of a CW high school drama? School of Thrones.

Yes, it’s silly, but it’s also pretty great to see those big, thematic ideas from George R.R. Martin’s series translated into the hallways and classrooms of Westeros Valley High.

A team of fan actors and writers have developed the first episode here, which will be an ongoing series. Our first installment introduces us to young Dany Targaryen's on her first day at the most dangerous high school in the world.

Check out the first clip below:

What do you think? Does the concept work on a smaller (more melodramatic) scale?
