Anonymous asked: Oh my god, can we talk about that flicker of love between Tyrion and Sansa when their hands touched as she gave him the cup?! He looked at her as if she just sprouted angel wings and her eyes... They totally said "I am here with you.."
I think this kind of sympathy was long overdue. In the books it happens during their wedding.
People say that Sansa sees Tyrion as another Lannister, but that’s not completely true. She sees him as another victim of the Lannisters. You know how in the books during the wedding she has to kneel before him for the cloaking ceremony. She is too tall and he can’t cloak her. So he gives her a sign that he wants her to kneel. And at first she is thinking “I won’t. Why should I spare his feelings, when no one cares about mine?” And then she hears how Cersei and Joffrey and everyone else are laughing at him, making fun of him. And when she turns around and sees his face, she understands him, she gets that he’s just in another kind of prison. And she kneels for him.
That kind of inner struggle was cut from the wedding ceremony on the show. I can only imagine George Martin didn’t enjoy that. So when he was writing 4x02, he decided to add that scene with the cup. In the books the cup gets under the table and Tyrion goes there and takes it himself. On the show we see Sansa kneeling, taking the cup and giving it to Tyrion. That small scene, written by GRRM personally, is a significant evidence of how the author sees the relationship between these two characters. They are not enemies, they are not even indifferent, they are allies, they help each other and give each other comfort when they can. They care about each other. And it’s not based on passion or lust, as with so many of the relationships in the series, but on mutual understanding, sympathy and kindness. I believe this is the foundation of the truest love possible. Remember when Cat was talking about her love with Ned in season 2:
“Your father didn’t love me when we married. He hardly knew me, or I him. Love didn’t just happened to us, we build it slowly over the years, stone by stone… For you, for your brothers and sisters; for all of us. It’s not as exciting as a secret passion in the woods, but it is stronger, it lasts longer.”
I will go down with this ship. Always and forever.

Wow. I love that you kept their expressions the same as the originals. Great all around!
And I wish the second came with a fic, because I would love it.
okay, so i totally get why victor hugo decided to change the name “thomas” to “marius” in later drafts of les misérables
… but a part of me will always mourn all the “tom haverford pontmercy” memes that might have been.

I want to see Brienne and Jamie do a slapstick Vaudeville show. Am I… am I a fanfic person?
But like their act is just a bunch of terrible “Can I get a hand?” jokes and the big finale is a dancing bear who doesn’t want to cooperate
Think about it
"Apart from my transformations, I was happier than I had ever been in my life. For the first time ever, I had friends, three great friends. Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, and, of course, your father, Harry ― James Potter. Now, my three friends could hardly fail to notice that I disappeared once a month. I made up all sorts of stories. I told them my mother was ill, and that I had to go home to see her…I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they worked out the truth…And they didn’t desert me at all.”

Anonymous asked: I've been meaning to ask you, will you do a write up on what you think the death of Lady means for Sansa? I do think it foreshadowed the death of Sansa Stark- the identity, not the person. As we see now, she's Alayne Stone. But beyond that, what are the ramifications of being the only Stark child without a wolf? And, Arya doesn't have her wolf either, but Nymeria is alive, leading a pack in the Riverlands, and Arya wargs with her every night from Braavos. Their connection is only strengthening.
Well, the whole connection between Stark and direwolf is interesting and very symbolic. It’s also very powerful and important, which means that Sansa and Arya have had to struggle through being separated from theirs.
It’s pretty complex in my opinion.
