My temper got the best of me and when I said that I mean I know every single thing that I said was true and I know that you’re mad at me but if you’re thinking like that, I think you’ll see that you’re mad at you too
It’s sad that groups don’t get popular off of their talent but more for what company they come from because as soon as SM/YG/JYP announces they’re releasing a new group everyone is all like “OMG I can’t wait!!! Another group to Stan!!!!!!”
But then when a smaller company makes the same announcement, it’s the same old shit about “All these nugu groups!! Nobody has even heard of this company before!!” I’m just saying…
Just wanted to say that I really love "Freia" and that I'm really glad that I found such a well written piece. I live for your dialogues and I'm going through an abstinence crisis just thinking about how I'll never get to read your Rhaenys again once it is finished (that said, I do hope there is a sequel). Also, if you could enlighten me on why you seem to hate Dany and if that is a show only or a book also thing, I'd be happy (new to the whole thing). Thank you and have a nice day <3
Well thank you that’s really nice, I’m glad you enjoy it 😊
I don’t think there’ll be a sequel. I’m trying to go for my law masters and if I’ll write, it’ll be in Dutch and my own work. Fan fiction sort of exhausts me and I started writing Freia in the first place because I wanted to grow and learn.
Okay so, you want me to enlighten you on why I hate Daenerys?
I can’t cause I don’t. I’ve said it a million times, I do not hate Daenerys. It’s as if Dany fanfirls want me to hate her because they like to write off every bit of criticism as simply being ‘hate’. It’s easier to ignore criticism when you believe it comes from someone who’s blinded by dislike. But I’m not, trust me.
The only thing I hate is people thinking she’s something she isn’t. Daenerys is a very big hypocrite and I don’t enjoy hypocrites kissing hypocrite asses. I can’t root for her, in the first place, cause everything gets handed to her on a silver platter. I have a hard time feeling sorry for her when the main thing she worries about is how she’d rather run off with her disturbing boyfriend when really, she should be worrying about the city she’s trying but can’t rule. Her people are starving and she’s wearing fancy silks and eating sweets at the top of the great pyramid. I can’t sympathize with her anymore. Not since book 1.
From my pov, and I’m saying this as someone who is about to gain a bachelor major in Public international law and human rights, that is, I’m specialized in what is what isn’t okay during times of war (don’t try and tell me people Dany kills weren’t ‘really’ innocent and don’t compare situations to North-Korea, ISIS or Afghanistan either), it is very disturbing to believe Daenerys deserves what she gains and aims. She should never ever be the leader of even the smallest pack. (Look at how she dragged a starving, thirsty khalasar into a desert just cause she believed the 'bleeding star’ was obviously send for her). Her and her dragons is like giving a fourteen year old mass destruction weapons and hoping she makes the right decisions. She’s so so so young, yet she believes she’s supposed to rule Seven Kingdoms? She couldn’t even rule half a city (since she killed the other half). By the words of someone else who’s meta I once read: has Westeros not suffered enough?
I agree with Daenerys critics, but even I feel that the hate she receives is sometimes unfair. Not because she doesn’t suck, but because I truly believe that there’s an absence of right and wrong in Martin’s work, good vs bad is an obsolete in A Song of Ice and Fire.
That also means I believe people don’t do Daenerys justice when they’re hyping her as some goddess, the messiah, the savior princess. These sort of things truly bother me. She’s far too complicated to ever be that. I think it’s an insult to the character and to GRRM’s writing to believe she can do no wrong, to wave away her flaws. Cause she has many flaws. Whenever people call her a feminist icon, a little part of me dies.
I think she is a brilliant character, she’s very layered, very detailed, complicated, conflicting, I think she may be GRRM’s most genius creation. So I could never hate her, I admire her existence to much. I do hate it when she’s given kudos she doesn’t ever deserve. And that happens a lot.
Aside from her monstrous acts, that is, in the show, doing stuff like setting people on fire, locking them up to starve in a cell, crucifying hundreds of possibly innocent men, executing without a trial because someone executed without a trial, forcing a dude who’s dad you killed to marry you, burning prisoners of war…
that’s just in the show, in the books, she takes a whole lot steps further by torturing little girls, allowing slaves to sell themselves back into slavery and keeping part of the profit. Quentyn describes Astapor to be the closes thing to hell he’s ever seen.The last survivors in Astapor are currently dying from the plague. Thanks Daenerys. She has more deaths to her name than any other character alive and the girl is barely a teenager and hasn’t even set foot on Westerosi land yet. I’m not going to give you a list of all the things she’s done wrong. I’m sure you can find it somewhere else. It’s a long list and I haven’t memorized it.
That aside, what bothers me is that people seem to genuinely believe she’ll be a marvelous ruler who’ll bring justice and peace. You know, she’ll 'break the wheel’. If she gets a chance to then, yeah, possibly, but only when she’s on top. I already explained why the Dany good girl trope bothers me, but it also happens to be absolute false.
Sure, Dany cares about her subjects. But she’s also the most incapable ruler of rulers.
Dany is arrogant, short-tempered, ridiculously inconsistent, never has a long-term plan, has the absolute most rubbish character judgement, she has some really high headed übermensch mentality, she’s stubborn, aggressive and the show has even given her clear signs of her daddy’s paranoia.
She’ll be a terrible queen. Her Mereen rule was a joke and might be funny did it not end up destroying lives. Just look at her endless list of titles. Do you truly believe someone genuinely nice would give themselves a list of names dedicated to all the fabulous things they’ve done and forces everyone to listen to it all the time just to impress and feel good about themselves? No. Daenerys wants to rule Westeros even though she’s never in her entire life set foot on mainland. She doesn’t know the land she wants to rule nor does she show any signs to attempt at learning them. Look at the way she tells Jon to forget about her father killing his uncle and grandfather, yet helps him remember Ned Stark tried to kill her. That’s Daenerys for you, right there. She wants all her father’s privilege, to sit on a throne they lost by conquest and is therefore, honestly, simply not hers anymore (ignoring the fact that Jon’s claim is stronger anyway), but none of his cruel deeds.
So yeah, I think that if people still root for and like Daenerys at this point they won’t change their mind no matter what, which says more about them than about Dany. I don’t think you should root for her, but if it’s wrong to still like her… 🤷🏼♀️ just know that if anything, asoiaf has taught us that those who want power, should not have it. Who is the most powerhungry person again? Right. Not Cersei, I promise.
One thing I know is that she doesn’t deserve the oversimplification she’s subject to. She’s so much more than what her fans/the makers of the show give her credit for.
I actually prefer SanSan pictures that focus more on their connection, and less on the romance, so I guess this drawing makes me a total hypocrite (after all, he’s kissing her, and neither one of them appear to be wearing any clothes). Ah, l’amour!
“Aw what are you complaining about? That’s some free negative juju for you!”
“I’m sorry if you the bickering between the two of you tastes like stale, moldy bread compared to a real fight. All I heard was nah, nah, nah, Discord you’re a big selfish baby and nah, nah, nah, Twilight, you’re a hypocritical dork. Then Oh! Kiss me you fool!” Her Twilight impression was squeaky like a helium voice and her Discord was deep and raspy.
Autumn wasn’t okay. She had just caught her boyfriend cheating on her. What was worse was the little voice in her head telling her she was a hypocrite. She let Jamie kiss her even though her and Sebastian still together didn’t she? She found a pack of beers in a cooler, and lost count of how many she drank
pocky, jongyu, r. jinki wants jonghyun to settle down before exams. for @jjangst–happy birthday kk! please enjoy!
Jinki sits down beside Jonghyun on the couch with a heavy sigh. Jonghyun’s winter finals for his fourth year of year of university were on the horizon; Jinki, who had graduated in the spring, was allowing his boyfriend to study in his apartment.
Worry is etched on Jonghyun’s forehead. He has read the text before him so many times now that it appears blurry and formless before him, as though written in ancient runes. Meticulous and fastidious as ever, Jonghyun, despite the lateness of the hour, has continued to refuse sleep or even food, not wanting to waste his time. But the moment Jinki takes a seat beside him, his attentions wander. Typical Jinki, he thinks to himself without a hint of annoyance. Even after a year together, Jonghyun has never been able to work around Jinki; the angel of a man is too damn distracting. Especially when he’s brought Jonghyun’s favorite snack with him, a full package of–
“Strawberry Pocky?” Jonghyun asks, eyeing the packet his boyfriend is warmly extending to him.
“I figured you could use a snack,” Jinki shrugs, voice growing humble at the awe-struck look Jonghyun gives him. “It was nothing really, I just know they’re your-”
“You’re my hero,” Jonghyun interrupts, seizing six and putting them all in his mouth at once. “You’re a godsend, you’re miraculous, thank you, thank you so much.”
The words tumble unchecked from Jonghyun’s mouth as he chews, half delirious from stress. He eats with a speed which would alarm Jinki if he wasn’t so used to the way Jonghyun devours every snack and meal he’s presented with; still, Jinki manages to sneak a stick of Pocky for himself too.
Within a few minutes Jonghyun has seized one of just two sticks remaining. As he chews, Jinki eyes the final piece, eyes sparkling with a mischievousness born of an idea that was the perfect combination of juvenile, romantic, and sexy, a mixture he knows Jonghyun is incredibly weak to.
Film critics: “LOL, Magic Mike is just fat chicks lusting after hot men!”
As opposed to slim, beautiful women lusting after dorks like Seth Rogen and Kevin James?
Go fuck yourselves. You Adam Sandler-loving misogynist hypocrites. Kiss my ass. Your feeble word has no value. Eat my farts.
