The first two seasons are really great! I know you have a lot of shows to watch and others to try, but definitely put it on your list considering 3+ gets… even more outrageous.
So! So far I have given people feelings on the following pairings they claim they not ship before my
mind control reblog blasts:
mulan x aurora
snow x red
elijah x rebekah
lydia x laura
I am Sailor OTP and in the name of the moon, I will convert you!
PRETTY EMOTIONAL ABOUT DANY SAYING VALYRIAN IS HER NATIVE TONGUE THOUGH
because it’s not, the common tongue is; the targaryens specifically abandoned much of their culture (religion, language, rituals) and changed from valyrian to westerosi when they united the kingdoms - the only things they kept were the imagery and weapons and customs that would assert their power (dragons and dragon iconography, valyrian steel, marrying in the bloodline to keep them “pure” - aka keep their features distinctly valyrian)
but ghis is a part of the world where the ghost of valyria is very much alive (they’re still speaking their language!!!) and dany knows that and she uses that and she very purposefully turns the tables on the slavemasters using language to remind them that she has the power
in front of these people she does not want to be the exiled princess of a country half a world away - she is the blood of old valyria and now that she has dragons that means something again
and she doesn’t need to do this - she has the dragons, and the unsullied - but she uses history and culture and performance to assert herself anyway and
#yes thank #obsessed with dany as a throwback to old valyria #i really really want her prophesised mount of dread to be her riding back to old valyria #i want her to melt down the iron throne and go back to her ancestral home? #having found that the westerosi home she’s been longing for is not truly the home she needs? #idk just want her to cease attempting to be a conqueror and be first a warrior/saviour in the fight against the great other #and then a rebuilder; clearly the whole ‘white saviour’ narrative in adwd is intended to show how problematic that kind of conquering-as-sav #conquering-as-saving deal is#i want her to rebuild valyria as a free city #after saving westeros from both the winter and the iron throne #GIVE IT ME #but god the performativity at play here; capitalizing on her heritage and what it means in essos #fucking in love with my darling being smart; it’s always what she’s been best at #using the inherent power of her bloodline and dragons and what it means to exert her will upon the world #very good at upsetting regimes of power with it but not so good at maintaining them; especially when built on broken systems?#which is why i want her to rebuild from the blank slate of the doom in valyria #REPUBLICS AS ENDGAME THANKS BYE #game of thrones #asioaf spoilers #meta #burn baby burn (via okayophelia)
And so many of them! Like ten of them out there right now!
