Jensen lets out a huge sigh of relief pulling into his garage. He throws his dark gray SUV in park and hauls ass into his country styled house, suitcases in tow. He’s finally made it home to Austin, after a grueling few weeks of shooting nonstop.
Sighing dramatically, Jensen decides it’s time to stuff his face with junk food and catch up on Game of Thrones. Humming to himself, he makes way down the hall but then suddenly freezes. He’s hearing loud movements and…a Seinfeld rerun playing?
For a split second, the thought that someone broke in crosses his tired mind. His dumb ass quickly remembers the house has an extensive alarm system so the noise must be from you.
You being his long time best friend that randomly checks on the house when he’s gone. Other than his parents and Jared, you’re the only one he trusts to do that. You’re one of the few he trusts in general actually.
The scene between Jaime and Brienne [is] the most reluctant love story in history. They love each other and they /hate/ that they love each other. […] That tacit understanding that it can never be anything, neither of them wants it to be anything, but it’s /there/.
Fairy Glen Groge, North Wales. This looks like the best AND worst place to have a picnic.
I have stepped on enough mossy stones to know that stepping on it while carrying a picnic basket won’t end well. But it’s so pretty tho :/ Imagine eating junk food while watching game of thrones here. Ahh the good life. I wish someone would invent moss proof boots. I would buy that in a heartbeat.
Avoiding Game of Thrones spoilers became a self-righteous badge of honour that you wore like a snug codpiece.
‘That sounds like a spoiler!’ you harrumphed loudly when two colleagues dared to quietly discuss the show within your exalted presence.
'I haven’t been on Facebook in three months, it’s just full of spoilers!’ you complained to the receptionist at work, a captive audience not paid handsomely enough to listen to your increasingly deranged rantings.
'I’m waiting for the series to end so I can watch it in its entirety, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask that people don’t mention it in print or out loud!’ you shouted unreasonably over the fence to your neighbour, who was actually talking about Lord of the Rings.
Little did you know, but while you were carrying on like a right Cnut the Great, trying to hold back the tide of information, your own food was subliminally spoiling the show for you in some pretty major ways.
I mean, check out this one.
It’s going to be so obvious when you get around to seeing it.
gosh don’t u just hate it when strong female characters fall prey to stupid girly stuff like human emotions and interpersonal relationships
i am so disappoint game of thrones
brienne of tarth WAS amazing
but since you’ve now had a single scene in which you’ve made explicit the already heavily implicit element of romantic subtext in her relationship with jaime lannister, that completely erases every other aspect of her character both retroactively and in the future
such a shame that nothing else about her matters or even exists anymore and never will again
when will people finally stop ruining strong female characters by letting them have FEELINGS and FALL IN LOVE as if they are actually nuanced beings instead of appropriately strong and impenetrable caricatures >:(
Daily reminder that you can and should be critical of the things you enjoy. Taking note of bad writing, sexism, erasure, and other issues do not necessarily mean you have to hate something. Actively ignoring these things though, makes you an asshole.
"BRIENNE HAS BEEN RUINED/WEAKENED AS A CHARACTER BY THE IMPLICATION THAT SHE IS IN LOVE WITH JAIME"
ignoring the fact that human emotions don’t ruin characters
might i point out that book!brienne is a 19-year-old girl who joined an army and went off to war bcs she had a crush on a gay guy on account of he danced with her one time
she is also noble and pure and heroic and relentless and the truest knight in westeros
but she was always all of those things in concert with being a 19-year-old girl who joined an army and went off to war bcs she had a crush on a gay guy on account of he danced with her one time
strong romantic feelings and questionable taste in men have always been at the core of her character so even if it wasn’t also obvious as shit in the books that she’s in love with jaime (though it is) it wouldn’t exactly be ooc for her to want to tap that
Jaime and Brienne row to your blog to thank you for being an awesome shipper and no matter if you write fics about them, draw them, make graphics, or just gush about how much they love each other you’re amazing and you should keep doing the thing that you do cause you’re awesome at it. Now if you would be so kind as to direct them to the first five JB shippers on your dash, Jaime refuses to ask for directions and they have many more to thank. - nochanceandnochoice
