*sighs* tell me more about Arya and water symbolism in her arc and what it could mean for her endgame please
my other favorite subject lol. ok so water is everywhere in arya’s story. from her first lesson with syrio, the water dancer, to the riverlands where arya spends so much time and she gives dying men water. now she’s in braavos - a city of islands in a sea where a poisoned pool is central to the temple she lives at. and all the dozens of references in between. its a really strong motif in her arc. again, this suggests to me that its intentional on grrm’s part
“This is the bravo’s dance, the water dance, swift and sudden. All men are made of water, do you know this? When you pierce them, the water leaks out and they die.“ (AGOT)
water is a fundamental part of life and i think people get caught up in death where arya’s arc is concerned. yes, it plays a big role. but you cant have one without the other. arya witnesses so much death and kills but she’s still alive and so are others thanks to her and she gave the gift of mercy to several others. even in the text water mainly represents life (exception poison/contamination which we also see)
The green water was warm as tears, but there was no salt in it. It tasted of summer and mud and growing things. (ACOK)
She got dirt in her mouth but she didn’t care, the taste was fine, the taste was mud and water and worms and life. (ACOK)
arya actively uses water as a coping mechanism. her mantra “calm as still water” helps arya manage her fear/panic. its a survival technique. she thinks of herself as water with the faceless men too. there she needs to be controlled as well as on the battlefield or while being hunted. arya stark’s true thoughts and feelings must be concealed. all of this is why water can symbolize mystery and emotion. its the element of hidden depths which is a perfect representation of arya
Her face was still water, hiding all, revealing nothing. (ADWD)
i can’t not mention the nature connection. water is significant to the old gods - they rule over trees and rivers. the pool is an important part of the godswood. arya spends so much time in the wilds that water is frequently mentioned in one form or another (rivers, lakes, rain, the sea, fog, canals ect) she feels hears smells tastes and sees it. its always a sensory experience. arya can, according to jon, swim like a fish. when arya tries to rid herself of all her possessions she throws everything into the water. like i said; its presence in her story is huge. this is a constant throughout every book. water is her personality, her survival, her faith, her surroundings.
She raised the cup to the fish’s mouth. The water splashed across her fingers and down her sleeve, but Arya did not move until the cup was brimming over. (ASOS)
i’ve talked a lot about arya’s water like nature. because water will change form to fit into any space it symbolizes adaptability. which i think is one of arya’s most defining traits. arya becomes whatever she has to in order to survive. to the point that she will attempt surrendering her very identity into nothingness. nobody has had more transformations. this is the crux of her arc. and its a big reason i think she’ll make it. if you create a character to be just like water - moving shifting adapting no matter what the circumstances - then i don’t see any meaningful reason for killing them off. arya’s survives. its what she does.

Happy Birthday Sam. A very happy 34th. Happy birthday to one of the most beautiful fictional characters I’ve ever known, or rather I will ever know, because there’s no one quite like you.
Thank you for being so exceptionally brave and inspiring. And the first of those qualities is not the only one that makes the second exist…No. It’s the purity of your heart, your hard work and your empathy.
There’s hardly another character more forgiving and truly selfless. Only the other Winchester comes in the same league regarding these exceptional qualities.
To have been kicked down so often is unimaginable, but kudos to you for picking yourself each time, and still having faith in this mangled, and broken world. I look up to you everyday. So happy birthday…. Here’s to many more… Cheers!
I’ve seen the word stupid being thrown around as far as Lee’s decision to inject herself with the Tetch virus. Jervis clearly got in her head when she visited him and made her think it was her fault Mario died. Plus she had that line to Jim about being willing to pay for what she’s done. She injected herself as a way of punishing herself. She also had a line when she was with Jervis where she asked him why he didn’t just infect her instead of Mario. In her mind it was always supposed to be her, so I also think this is her way of just setting it right.
Also, she punched Ed, she hates Barbara, and had no problem sassing Jerome, but suddenly with Jervis it’s ‘Why blame the lunatic?’ She’s been through so much trauma she can’t even think straight. Not to mention the fact that she’s completely alone and the ones you’d think she could turn to have been lying to her face for weeks and showed her no sympathy at all in her time of grief.
This cutie is literally the most precious thing! I’ve been subscribed for almost 3 or 4 years now and I can’t get over the fact that he literally risks his life for other people in video games. And his stupid fucking voice has me tripping up and blushing whenever he uses THAT tone.
You know what I’m fucking talking about! When he says something completely innocent but it sounds so dirty in his voice! I’m left wondering how in God’s green Earth can someone so dorky and adorable sound so fucking sexy in 0.01 seconds?
Not to mention he’s so thoughtful, when he’s streaming if chat is in a dark place then he’ll stop and talk about his struggles and encourage others to get help and gets the people to find suicide hotlines for anyone that needs them.
I just think not enough people appreciate Ohm. I love him with my whole heart and I’m honestly glad the bbs fandom sort of unanimously added Ohm to this fandom. He’s the biggest sweetheart on this entire planet. ❤
