29, Italian. This blog is meant for escapism, so expect little seriousness and lots of literature, shows and music appreciation.
It will mostly feature:
A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones,
I'm inept at making graphics, but I do love meta and character discussion.
This is not a spoiler free blog.
jaime/brienne ; why???
One, this is my opinion. I will not be dealing with any passive aggression that i know will come of this post. If you intend to speak to me about this, tag me in something, hell even come to my ask. But if you passively aggressively post about this, and belittle my opinion, i will rip you to shreds with my bare teeth. (✿O‿O)
Riiiight. I stopped at “it’s not ok to romanticise abuse”. Coming from someone shipping a pair involved in:
- emotional abuse (from both sides)
- physical abuse
… I mean, am I meant to take you seriously or are you just having a laugh? Because I can’t quite tell.
Basically, this. Not to mention, those quotes at the beginning refer to a time in the story where Jaime and Brienne were enemies and he was her prisoner. I’d… say it’s a given he wouldn’t want to stay with her and cuddle?
And he did call her “my lady”… until she started calling him kingslayer, that is. The disrespect was mutual, rooted in prejudice and, again, in the umbalance of their relationship (not to insist on the point, but you do recall Jaime was in chains?). They both grew out of it during their journey, which, as you pointed out as well, made them friends (Oathkeeper and all that).
And I get wanting them as “just friends”, it’s an opinion that I can respect (I myself enjoy them no matter what turn their relationship will take), only don’t diss and belittle (see where I’m going?) other people for having other preferences.
Not EVERY male-female relationship has to be romantic - but grrm has coded this one with romantic undertones. We’ll see if they come to fruition or if it will just stay a (beautiful) platonic bond, but the undertones are there and you choosing to ignore them wont make them go away. Just as the bond between Jaime and Cersei is there. I don’t romanticize it, I think it’s not healthy for so many reasons, and I think it’s more made of hartred and disillusionment than of love as of now, but I see it’s there and it won’t disappear overnight.
You can totally not dig the relationship. That’s up to you. But if you don’t want people to respond to you in an irritated way I may suggest leaving them alone with their preferences.
And come on, you speak of wanting JB to remain friends when you have called them abusive just a few lines above? Because abuse is okay in friendship right? At least stick to one version of your attack on other shippers.
A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)
Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.
i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.
Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews
EXCUSE ME BUT THIS RING. NO ONE NOTICED IT?????
Actually I’ve seen people mention it since the first episode.
It’s Capaldi’s wedding ring. He never takes it off, even when acting.
To add to the story, he refuses to take it off because when his acting career was struggling, his wife never gave up on him. When he landed his first major gig, he decided to not take it off, to represent he was there because of his wife’s support.
This is the sweetest and best thing I’ve eve heard about any behind-the-scenes ever
The Miss Indian World pageant is the answer to Miss America we’ve been looking for
When Kira Kazantsev was crowned the new Miss America on Sunday night, a feeling of déjá vu set in.
Not only was she white — like all but nine of the 94 winners before her — she also fit snugly into a narrowly defined standard of Western female attractiveness: early 20s, long flowing hair and a thin, painstakingly tanned physique that would not seem out of place in a Victoria’s Secret catalog.
In many ways, the Miss Indian World pageant’s definition of what American beauty truly entails is the ideological antithesis to Miss America. Indeed, since 1984, this five-day competition based in Albuquerque, N.M., has honored Native American woman for their contributions to their communities, not their bikini bodies. The top award is given to the contestant who “best represents her culture,” according to Al Jazeera.
Why this pageant is world’s better
