Yeah, but nothing is still on Earth. Everything’s always changing—leaves, cities, even Jersey changes. My dad says the rest stops used to be pretty gross, but now they have sushi. This isn’t the same world that held you prisoner, not anymore, and I know it doesn’t feel like home but maybe that can change, too.
cursed discourse, completely wrong: i don’t like klance because Lance is abusive
good discourse: i don’t like klance because it’s a stereotypical, boring dynamic that has been played a million times before and a majority of klance content plays into various homophobic and racist tropes
best discourse: i don’t like klance because keith is a major source of lances insecurities that have been ingrained in him for a long time, probably a few years. while this isn’t exactly keiths fault, he continues to feed into it without thinking. it also ensures that an unhealthy competition will be present in their relationship, romantic or otherwise, for a long time. until they both work it out, neither of them are ready for a romantic relationship, and almost all fan content ignores this fact and lances insecurities in favor of a romanticized, unrealistic dynamic that is far from true to either character.
god tier discourse: i don’t like klance because it doesn’t have hunk
The Hound was right, she thought, I am only a little bird, repeating the words they taught me. (Sansa, AGOT)
Arry was a fierce little boy with a sword, and I’m just a grey mouse girl with a pail. (Arya, ACOK)
i like the contrast between these two personas. sansa has always been courteous and pretty but its not until kings landing that her natural disposition becomes her tools for survival. even after the lannisters betray and abuse sansa she’s expected to be joffreys grateful betrothed. she has to smile and dress well and say everything that is required of her.
arya adopts a somewhat similar persona when she’s a prisoner in harrenhal. she becomes a mouse, nonthreatening and vulnerable, just like her sister. the major differences are defined by status. while sansa is in a cage for display arya is in a maze wheres she’s just another pow. sansa recites pretty words arya quietly observes. arya wears scratchy grey clothes, sleeps in straw, and scrubs harrenhal until her hands bleed.
Sansa stalked away with her head up. She was to be a queen, and queens did not cry. At least not where people could see. (Sansa, AGOT)
I won’t cry, she thought, I won’t do that. I’m a Stark of Winterfell, our sigil is the direwolf, direwolves don’t cry. (Arya, ACOK)
sansa rarely compares herself to any animals and even when she thinks she’s a little bird its not even her own thought. animals are not particularly relevant to her experiences. she prefers things like songs and social status. her bird-esque behavior also predates her hostage crisis and exists after the fact. this is another huge difference. arya constantly uses animals as symbols throughout her journey. but the direwolf is the one she always comes back to in the end.
I am a direwolf, and done with wooden teeth. (Arya, ACOK)
Be brave, she told herself. Be brave, like a lady in a song. (Sansa, ASOS)
again, this is reflected in their castle(/prison) escapes. arya relies on her wolf instincts for survival. but those would have little use in sansa’s situation. i think another factor her is that arya’s actually been inside a wolfs head. she is connected to nymeria, body and soul. sansa’s bond to lady was severed before she got inside her wolf’s head. but ultimately i think its just a difference in personality.
A lady remembered her courtesies, and she was resolved to be a lady no matter what. (Sansa, AGOT)
I’m not a lady, Arya wanted to tell her, I’m a wolf. (Arya, ASOS)
instead of bruce constantly running off in the middle of batcat dates to go dish out some vigilante justice, imagine selina constantly blowing bruce off to hang out with the gotham rogues and each time he gets more and more frustrated
bruce: hey selina we still on for tonight? selina: sorry bruce i promised i’d drive harley to airport. rain check? bruce: sure don’t worry about it
bruce: i reserved a table for 7pm tonight and- selina: ooooh sorry, bruce, i totally forgot. eddie just got a new cat and that man CANNOT look after another living thing without intervention. bruce: another rain check?
bruce: thought i’d check before i actually booked the table this time and- selina: about that… tonight’s the rogues christmas party. i said i’d go so ivy wasn’t bored out of her mind, hope it’s ok that we- bruce: ….it’s fine.
bruce: should i even ask if we can-? selina: no can do bruce, i have a lunch date with freeze and i wanna see how he’s doing- bruce: [hangs up]
bruce: alright selina for the last time, are you really serious about dating me? or are all these excuses just your way of saying you want to break up? let me guess, poker night with two-face and penguin? selina: …….. i was gunna say i’m free at 9pm but if you’re gunna be like that…
“My name is Percy Jackson. I’m twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for troubled kids in upstate New York. Am I a troubled kid? Yeah. You could say that.”
Just so we’re all on the same page here: Anakin Skywalker 1000% watches soap operas. We already know what a shipping fangirl he is overall so you know he’s into soaps or some kind of serial drama. Maybe he used to watch them with his mom or something and it became a habit.
He binge-watches them on Galactic Netflix at Padme’s when she’s gone during the day. Obi-Wan learns this and mocks him for it (he’s totally an “I don’t own aTV” guy)but then gets totally sucked in to one of Anakin’s shows and then one day Padme comes home early and the two of them are sitting on her couch, crying about some episode they just watched during a full-season binge viewing, and she’s like “what in the world happened to you two?”
Anakin’s looking up spoilers for the next installment on his phone while covering his mouth in shock at what he’s reading, and Obi-Wan’s ranting about how he can’t believe that the writers killed ANOTHER person that one of the heroes loves since he’s trying to watch this stupid show to ESCAPE from reality, damn it. Both of them are trying to claim only the other one is crying.
