Of course I have shit to say about GOTS8, Ep4, “The Last of the Starks.” First thought upon seeing that title: “They better NOT be the last of the Starks!” Anyway. There’s a lot of things happening in the episode. And it’s not all bad! Part of the problem with the ep, and with the season in general, is there’s some content in here that’s really promising.
I just don’t know where to begin.
I don’t want the US to become a one-party system. What we have right now, though? It’s worse than a one-party system. We have a party that is interested in actually governing. And then we have a party that’s mostly just interested in fucking everything up.
They’re gonna keep fucking everything up as long as they keep getting into office.
Part 6 is up at The Cloak Soiled Him, everyone! In this chapter, Jaime gets a clear chance to retire from the Kingsguard, and he foolishly turns it down.
Is there a social network or database of people who live in states with pretty liberal abortion rights, who are willing to host pregnant people who need to travel to get abortions?
Because I live in Maryland, and I’ve got couch space available for people coming from Ohio. Must play nicely with my cat. Free lodging, food, Internet, reading material, and I’ll give you a ride to and from the Metro station. Ask nicely and I’ll pay for Lyft rides to and from the clinic.
I have reached the stage of ASOIAF/GOT fandom at which I feel viscerally, personally offended when people vilify my favorite characters. Like, it’s become a question of whom I can trust, if they have choosing-to-be-wrong ideas about certain characters. It’s not just reading comprehension anymore, it’s wondering how this reflects on your treatment of people in real life.
Also, I’m just as vicious a curmudgeon as ever.
My dearest Throners:
The R+L=J+M idea was ridiculous from the get-go, but since the Season 6 finale, it shouldn’t even be in the conversation.
If I see you STILL trying to make the Stargaryen Twins happen, I will not take seriously any other speculation you have to offer.
Still advocating for any form of Lady Stoneheart on the show, or for Cleganebowl happening in either version? Same thing. Everything else you want to argue for in GoT could be prophetic, but if you’re still arguing for a theory that’s been proven non-viable, then I have better things to do with my time.
We got some pretty amazing synopses from HBO today for episodes 6 and 7. Twitter had a field day with them, but I’m not posting anything on them because I’m pissy about having submitted a slideshow to FanSided in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, and no one’s even begun editing it yet. I was given a deadline of noon on TUESDAY. I stayed up late on Monday night to finish it on time. It’s still pending.
Yeah, and somehow my asshole jerkbrain has decided I won’t do a blog post over here because my editors over there don’t have their shit together.
Well, there’s that, and I had an especially persistent run of annoying, pointless shit at work today. So my head may be a little scrambled.
Lemme do a little pattern-analyzing and see if I don’t feel better.
