has said that he partially based his Euron performance off of Donald Trump and frankly he deserves an award because I feel the same way about Euron in the show as I did about Trump in real life.
I may not like everything he’s doing, but my god do I love watching him fuck people’s shit up.
House Greyjoy round-up post, featuring Balon, Euron, Victarion, Aeron, Asha, and Theon. Victarion is played by Ray Stevenson as Blackbeard in Black Sails; everyone else is represented by their show counterpart.
Think the Dusky Woman will get any sort of reveal before Victarion kicks it?
I certainly hope so! Victarion’s inability to realize that he’s being manipulated by Euron, and that the latter is operating on a much stranger and scarier plane than the rest of the Ironborn, is central to his character. As Moqorro puts it when they meet, the Iron Captain is “blind to the tentacles.” (Unlike Aeron, who can see them all too well…) Vic is so certain that he’s pulled one over on the Crow’s Eye, even as he tells all his plans to the woman Euron tricked him into taking and lets her tend to his wound. As such, not only would confirming the dusky woman’s status as Euron’s agent be a hell of a reveal in itself, it would be a fitting catharsis for Victarion’s characterization. He’ll finally understand that he’s a tool…too late.
reblog / like / follow if you’re ready to write with book canon Victarion Greyjoy from George R.R. Martin’s a song of ice and fire.This man is a powerhouse on the battlefield, his body is that of a bull but his mind is that of a tree stump. Warning to those that try and stop this man from attaining his prize is a swift axe to the skull.
“Why was I exiled? Well, some think it was because I sort of burned the Lannister fleet and started a rebellion that got my brother’s son’s all killed or worse, but no. We Ironborn are a proud people. My beloved brother wouldn’t have kicked me off his island for that.
No, it was over a girl. Gorgeous thing, Victarion had picked her up somewhere, Dorne or the Westerlands, probably, she had nice tawny skin, dark eyes, a voice that begged like a goddess, and a cunt as tight as a virgin. I guess Vicky didn’t use her as much as he could have. Now, we couldn’t have that, such beauty going to such waste. So I took care of it. She kept our little secret, but then… she got stupid. They say that babies do that to women, they eat their brain. ‘Your brother raped me! I’m carrying his child!’” he cooed in a high falsetto. “As if
Victarion would have punished me for it. I wish I had been there, they said he smashed her skull into a rock and cried while he beat her to death with his own hands. He would have killed me, if kinslaying hadn’t been such a sin in the eyes of the Drowned God, at least according to our benevolent king, who told me to leave and never return till his death.”
“At least I can say that I listened to him. I didn’t return till the day of his death.”
