“To me, we have a culture that is surpassed by no other civilization, but we don’t know anything about it…My job is to somehow make [the black youth] curious enough or persuade them by hook or crook to get more aware of themselves and where they came from and what they are into and what is already there and just to bring it out. This is what compels me to compel them, and I will do it by any means necessary.” -Nina Simone, c. 1969
Why do you think Sansa was crying when she sentenced LF? In a high quality photo of the scene you can see a tear sliding down her cheek.
Yes, she was. Don’t know if it was scripted or it was all Sophie but it’m glad they portrayed as the tragedy it is. Sansa said it—that in his own way, Petyr loved her, and, “it’s not about what I want, it’s about what honor compels me to do”. Their relationship was so complicated, and it shaped Sansa so deeply that it’s impossible for her to remain impassible. This man wronged her and her family so much, she knows it now, she’s suspected it for a while, yet he was the only constant in her life after Ned’s death. He was there in King’s Landing. He helped her navigate the court. He smuggled her to the Eyrie. Under his wing she grew into the person she’s now. Before Arya, before Brienne, before Jon, he was her closest confidant and the only person who knew all her secrets. He was a surrogate father and a surrogate lover. This isn’t a Littlefinger apology, to be clear—he was absolutely abusive and manipulative to Sansa, on top of all the shit he did to the rest of her family. But it’s perfectly normal to still feel devotion and compassion for one’s abuser, even after you’ve completely opened your eyes on the nature of the relationship; and Sansa is nothing but compassionate.
I really appreciated that Arya asked her how she felt. She understands that her sister’s relationship with this man was complex and that she still felt a twisted kind of loyalty to him and yes, it was brave of her, because she decided to get rid of someone who might still have been an asset, not to house Stark as a whole, but to Sansa Stark as an individual.
I honestly feel so, so sorry for her. Because she had to steel herself and watch another person in her life die, and this time she had to pass the sentence while he begged and cried for mercy. The witch is dead, yes, but in real life that sort of moments are more bittersweet than triumphant. Remember Joffrey’s death? Justice often requires a sacrifice. And Sansa had to sacrifice the only thing that was, in a twisted way, hers and hers onlyto have justice for her family. This is probably the hardest thing she’s had to do so far. I’m both proud and heartbroken.
it’s so telling that klancers are solely focusing on and blowing the “lance is keith’s stability” quote out of proportion but completely ignoring the part where it was discussed what kind of GIRL lance would end up.

❛ We are three distrustful acquaintances who happen to share a bloodline. ❜ ❛ You don’t suppose they’ve found a way to kill him once and for all, do you? ❜ ❛ I’ll either stop them, or I’ll help them. Depending on my mood. ❜ ❛
I cannot be killed. I am immortal.
. ❜ ❛ I will always protect you. You have my word on that. ❜ ❛ What do you care about the witches? ❜ ❛ You would dare threaten an original? ❜ ❛ I was expecting to see some sort of supernatural miracle baby bump. ❜ ❛ You hardly know him… and yet you miss him. ❜ ❛ What is it about my brother that always inspires such instant admiration? ❜ ❛ I cannot believe you disposed of those vampires without me. ❜ ❛ Was I supposed to leave them in them in the front yard to rot? ❜ ❛ It’s called compulsion. It’s a neat bit of vampire trickery. ❜ ❛ The world is an awful place. Best to meet it on its own terms. ❜ ❛ They want to be good. Something makes them bad. ❜ ❛ You get a daylight ring when you get invited into the inner circle? ❜ ❛ You do not want to end up on the wrong side of me. ❜ ❛ The kind of damage a werewolf might do, only there was no full moon. ❜ ❛ So, enlighten me. What did you mean when you said you had to die? ❜ ❛ You’ll keep your promise about my mother’s spell book? ❜ ❛ Those Orphan Annie vampires are my family, and this city is my home. ❜ ❛ So this is what you do the first time we’re back together as a family? Vampire Book Club? ❜ ❛ I’d deal with the devil himself just to see you suffer. ❜ ❛ I’m a gay club kid who died and came back as a vampire. ❜ ❛ Forgive me. Thought you were in danger. It appears I was mistaken. ❜ ❛ A coven of psycho witches want to sacrifice me in a blood ritual. ❜ ❛ What makes you think I’m afraid to die? ❜ ❛ So you’re having weird, retro sex dreams. Get over it. I’m staying. ❜ ❛ It is ironic discussing free will with a mind-controlling vampire. ❜ ❛
Is there anyone who isn’t plotting your downfall?
❜ ❛ I have conspired against my own blood and I doubt even your God could save me. ❜ ❛ You compelled her to go out with me, didn’t you? ❜ ❛ Do you have any idea how rare love is? In a thousand years I have found it but twice. ❜ ❛
Kill the demon today, face the devil tomorrow. ❜ ❛ Young, old, dead or alive, witches are a pain in the ass. ❜ ❛ Is this what it’s come to, making moves against your own blood? ❜ ❛ I’m going to find the witch who did this and then I’m going to do what I do best. ❜ ❛ If there’s a war going on, I want to be on the winning side. ❜ ❛ You’ve poisoned me with a kiss?!? At least you haven’t lost your sense of irony. ❜ ❛ Are we skipping the part where you beg for mercy? For forgiveness? ❜ ❛ Hey, am I taking orders from you now or are we in this together? ❜ ❛ One little spell then we can finally be together for real, what are you waiting for? ❜ ❛ They took my home, my people, everything. I can’t just run away. ❜ ❛ You know, you’ve come a long way, little wolf. ❜ ❛ I woke up in the church and all I felt was this hunger. ❜ ❛ A warrior fights for what they believe in. A warrior fights for his family. ❜ ❛ I kept you from becoming a beast for as long as I possibly could. ❜ ❛ As a devout feminist, I refuse to say that you hit like a girl. ❜ ❛ Am I crazy, or did he just do his version of a nice thing? ❜ ❛ I am your only family. And there is no greater strength than family. ❜ ❛ Don’t be stupid. I’m offering you eternal life. ❜ ❛ We will sleep for a century and wake with a power unlike any that’s ever been seen. ❜ ❛ Being Alpha’s an honor, you know. It’s one you have to earn every day. ❜ ❛ We are a macabre echo of a family, and I take all the blame for that. ❜ ❛ You just wouldn’t be you if you didn’t have a knife, would you? ❜ ❛ And does this monster have complicated feelings for you? ❜ ❛ Okay, fair enough, pick a fight, call me out! ❜ ❛ What do you feel like you owe these people? ❜ ❛ Do you mind? I’m trying to reverse a very complicated sacrifice spell. ❜ ❛ I leave you with the burden of a truth that no one will believe. ❜ ❛ Tell me, darling, how did they respond to your overtures? ❜ ❛ If you truly thought me weak, you would snatch this weapon from my hand. ❜ ❛ I wanted to rip my own heart out every time I woke so I couldn’t feel. ❜ ❛ We came here to honor the alliance between us. ❜ ❛ You know why I’m sitting here day drinking in the corner all by lonesome? ❜ ❛ I’m pretty much done and through with the vamps, wolves, and witches of this town. ❜ ❛ It’s not safe being out this late. You never know who you’ll run into. ❜ ❛ I’ll explain everything. Just say you believe me. ❜ ❛ It’s been a thousand years. How is this possible? ❜ ❛ I know that we’re in a cemetery and I happen to be terminal…. ❜ ❛ Spread the word and do arrive early enough to clean yourself up. ❜ ❛ You have disgraced this family for the last time. ❜ ❛ You talk about family; family this, family that. ❜ ❛ I haven’t earned the right to share your secrets, have I? ❜ ❛ You’re my blood. And I need you… I need you by my side. ❜ ❛ Oh, you’re angry, are you? ❜ ❛ I’ve been here a thousand years! I was building that dagger to protect myself against you! ❜ ❛ I got a family who didn’t care if I lived or if I died. ❜ ❛ This house, though charming, is completely falling apart. ❜ ❛ I know this wedding can work. We can bring our little girl home. ❜ ❛ You absolutely will not believe the week I’ve had. ❜ ❛ Fine. Go. You’ll be back. The prodigal son always returns home. ❜ ❛ Family are not just people who coddle you, who grant you your every whim. ❜ ❛ I will step in front of a moving truck before I let your mother take over my body. ❜ ❛ Not the first time that’s been done by a member of this family. ❜ ❛ I woke up with puncture wounds all up and down my spine! ❜ ❛ If what you say is true, then death is far too delicate a fate for her. ❜ ❛ Heh, you think I’m gonna break her little heart? ❜ ❛ I have a unique ability. Because I’m a hybrid. ❜ ❛ Except that every werewolf in town is trying to kill me. ❜ ❛ We need to get out of here… Are you gonna help me, or what? ❜ ❛ Your pack? Last I checked, your pack was blindly following me. ❜ ❛ First, I’m going to kick your ass. Then, I’m going to take my pack back. ❜ ❛ We’re so going to hell for this. ❜ ❛ Remind me to teach you how to send a text message. ❜ ❛ A thousand years estranged, and you choose to walk in silence? ❜ ❛ Kind of hard to rest with a thousand-year-old psycho in the next bed. ❜ ❛ You waited for me, so I’ll do the same for you. But, our people need their alpha. ❜ ❛ Is this rash a side effect of the witchy acid trip he’s on? ❜ ❛ You declared war when you came after my family. ❜ ❛ You’re outnumbered. Are you going to beg for your miserable life? ❜
