i didn't know how young you wanted him

  • Them: Daenerys is not strong. She is a bitch. How dare she speak to Jon Snow like that? She doesn't deserve the throne. She is boring af and insignifant.
  • Me: HAHAHHAHA LISTEN UP. SHE WAS HUNTED WHEN SHE WAS ONLY A CHILD. SHE WAS SOLD TO KHAL DROGO. SHE LOST HER CHILD AND THE LOVE OF HER LIFE. SHE WAS TREATED AS A SLAVE BY HER BROTHER WHO INSISTED HE WAS THE DRAGON AND SHE WAS NOTHING. AND YET THROUGH HER LOSS, THROUGH HER FAITH IN HERSELF, THROUGH HER STRONG WILL SHE BECAME A QUEEN. SHE MAY NOT SIT ON THE IRON THRONE YET, BUT SHE HAS A HEART OF GOLD. WITH THE POWER SHE HAD SHE COULD TAKE THE THRONE EASILY, BUT SHE FUCKING DIDN'T. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T WANT TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE. SHE FREED THOUSANDS OF SLAVES AND GAVE A CHOICE THEM. NOT ANY QUEEN HAS EVER DONE THAT BUT SHE FUCKING DID. SHE DIDN"T FORCE PEOPLE TO JOIN HER. SHE DIN'T MAKE THEM BE AFRAID OF HER. JON REFUSED TO KNEEL AND YET SHE DIDN'T KILL HIM EVEN IF SHE COULD. SHE GAVE HIM MORE TIME SO SHE COULD PROVE HERSELF. SHE DIDN'T MAKE HIM HER PRISONER, SO DON'T TELL ME SHE WAS A BITCH TO HIM. JON SNOW HAS BEEN THROUGH A LOT BUT SO HAS SHE. SHE DID MENTION WHAT SHE IS BEEN THROUGH TO JON, BUT THAT IS HOW SHE SHOWED HER POWER WITHOUT EVEN TOUCHING HIM. SHE HAS DONE MANY MISTAKES, BUT DON'T FORGET SHE IS YOUNG AND WITH NO ACTUAL EDUCATION. THE REASON WHY SHE REFUSES TO HELP JON IS PROBABLY BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T REALLY KNOW HIM. ASKING HIM TO BEND THE KNEE IS NOT ILLOGICAl. SHE IS LIKE "I WILL HELP YOUR PEOPLE BUT I NEED TO KNOW YOU ARE LOYAL TO ME". PLUS IF SHE DOESN'T TAKE THE THRONE FAST CERSEI WILL GAIN MORE POWER.. AND COME ON SHE RAISED 3 FUCKING DRAGONS WHEN THEY DIDN'T EVEN EXIST. YOU MAY NOT WANT HER FOR QUEEN BUT STOP SAYING SHE IS WEAK. I am good...

Hi. I read the article of harry doing mansplaining and I want to know your opinion about it. I can "understand" why some people may see his response as a way of mansplaining (at the end of the day he is a man and he's talking about how young girls are portrayed), but I wanted to know why you don't see it that way (I'm just asking because I didn't like how the article was written, and I talked to some feminist friends about it and they agreed he was doing mansplaining).

Mansplaining is when a man interupts a woman, to tell them something they already know, generally with less of a solid grasp on the subject matter than the woman they spoke over. 

What Harry did is 100% NOT mansplaining, because he was A) talking to another guy, who B) asked him a specific question about his fan base and C) was answering in support of women and girls. He was specifically celebrating the often-looked over and spoken-ill-of members of his fanbase and holding them up -  not as the fans you want to get past, so you can get to the real music-lovers, but the fans you should be greatful for, because of their vocal feedback and earnest support.

Quite frankly, fuck anyone who can read his answer to that question and not get that he was speaking from a position of genuine love and support, and with full enthusiasm and reverence.

Once I was at a family reunion and my cousin got (really) drunk and he pulled a condom out of his back pocket and screamed, "DIDN'T YOUR MOTHER EVER TEACH YOU TO USE PROTECTION ZEUS?" Then my second aunt (my cousin's mom) came out and asked him why he had a condom and gave him a lecture on how he's too young for sex (even though he's 20).

why did he say that,, I want to know the context behind pulling a condom out of your pocket and yelling about zeus

Mr. Gillen, what were your thoughts on Agent of Asgard? I know it likely didn't follow how you might've planned it to go (since you didn't write it) but were you happy with the way Loki's story went and was written?

It’s be a mistake to think I had anything like a plan for Loki after where I left him in Young Avengers.

I left Loki in a place at the end of YA where someone could run with him, any way they choose. I consciously try and write my runs so they don’t necessarily demand anything from writers who follow me. If they don’t like it, there’s nothing that insists they have to use it. Knowing that we wanted to do a Loki: Agent Of Asgard-esque book, without any specific details about its plot, my destination point was always “Here is Loki who has understood some of his shit and can operate as a lead in ethically grey-styled story.” Everything else was meat if they wanted it, but could be ignored to do their own thing if not. The latter wouldn’t displease me. The former always delights me. Being a writer with cheerily low self-esteem - otherwise known as “a writer” - I pretty much assume all my peers hate my work, so it’s always a surprise and a joy when someone does it.

(Recently, see also Sinister-is-a-species in SECRET WARS.)

I was very happy when Al got the book, as he’s a friend and someone whose work I adored. I was astounded by how much he chose to write it as the third act to Loki’s arc. And it really is the third act. As much as he builds its own thing, it’s a logical and beautiful extrapolation of where he inherited Loki. He even uses the line I dropped at the end of my editorial note in the last issue of JIM, y’know? (”Write your own happy ending”).

In short, I thought Al’s solution to the paradox we posed in SIEGE: LOKI was inspired. I thought that when Al described it to me in the LSCC hotel bar (the same place which inspired much of issue 7 of WicDiv), and I thought that when it saw print.

I think I tweeted that Al deserved some kind of award for “working in a shared universe writing” for Agent of Asgard, and I’d stand by that. Fascinating to see him do all that while making it his own.

[1] You know what? It's amazing how Arakawa made EdWin and RoyAi parallel but also very different. I mean, the guy seems so self-assured and confident and full of spunk but deep inside they are having a hard time making peace with their pasts. Then there's the girl who'll always look out for him, call out on his shit, and would always know him better than anyone else. I remember those 2 separate episodes, Winry telling Ed not to die and Riza telling Roy not to die and I think it's just so cool

[2] how Arakawa made them similar to each other. But then again, they are also very different in a way that EdWin’s about the beginnings of young and innocent love while RoyAi’s all about stability and devotion. It’s amazing. Arakawa’s amazing.
