“My American Language Partner, Newaza” by Zoe, part one, translated with permission by me

I know this isn’t my usual fanart translation but I found this comic so hilarious that I had to translate it.

There is a second part and I’ll translate it soon.

George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga continues in the official comic book adaptation by Dynamite Entertainment! Following the events of A Game of Thrones, Westeros is embroiled in civil war, while Daenerys Targaryen – as heir to the Targaryen dynasty, seeks to reclaim the Iron Throne. Arya, with the help of Yoren, a brother of the Night’s Watch, has escaped from King’s Landing, but the road to the Wall brings its own dangers. Meanwhile, Sansa attends a tournament on the sadistic King Joffrey’s name-day, and Bran, in Winterfell, suffers from strange dreams of wolves…

Can you think of any ASOIAF female characters deliberately scripted to quippy and clever, other than Olenna Tyrell? Or female comic relief (that's not super gross ala Lolys)? I was thinking about it, and it seems that the men hog most of the humor in the story (same for GOT, but women in GOT only tend to fluctuate between cold, angry, scheming, and crying so...) .

Off the top of my head? Myranda Royce and Genna Lannister. Dany’s definitely got her moments of sharp humour as well. 

However, there’s actually fairly solid in-universe reason for this. Humour of the sort you’re describing often involves putting someone down. Being funny in this way is therefore not encouraged amongst Westerosi noblewomen (how indecorous! what if they made fun of a man?). It’s no accident that Olenna (old widow), Myranda (younger widow), Genna (complete and overt power imbalance between her and her husband) and Dany (ruling queen with dragons) are the women with the social space to make snarky comments about men in public or semi-public. Contrast with image-conscious Margaery, who’s no stranger to snide comments, but has to be sneaky about them.

Humour, and its expression, is subversive. Training women not to be funny, and people not to see women as capable of producing humour, is part of the patriarchy GRRM’s depicting.

The Flash: Barry and Iris heading to couples therapy

 “Barry and Iris keep comically clashing inadvertently because she’s used to being in charge, and he’s used to being in charge, and so they wind up going to couples therapy to work through it,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “The two of them with the therapist is some of the funniest stuff we have ever done on this show, but it also leads to a deepening of their relationship.”  

Their journey to couples counseling is actually suggested by Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), whose relationship with Iris will strengthen this season. “Caitlin has been through so much herself in relationships, and if anyone can offer advice, it would be her,” Patton says. “She’s there quite often to give Iris advice on her relationship with Barry and how to move forward. It’s actually more her idea that they go to counseling and get help.”
