idek why this is

Walk the same tale over and over, until you wear a groove in the world, until even if you vanished, the tale would keep turning, keep playing, like a phonograph, and you’d have to get up again, even with a bullet through your eye, to play your part and say your lines.

Many fans, including myself, have pointed out that Sansa should have discussed this Umber/Karstark matter with Jon in private before this scene. But here’s a question: what detail in the scene makes us think she didn’t already?

Check out Jon’s reaction to Sansa speaking up in the Great Hall scene (above). Does he react like this is the first time he’s heard Sansa’s position on this? Or does he react like he knows what she’s launching into before she even says anything unsupportive?

Rewatching this scene, I found myself questioning my original assumption about the scene. After writing about it briefly in reply to winterfellchild’s fantastic Umber/Karstark meta, I got curious and took a closer look. In particular, I wondered what details of the scene I had missed originally, which contributed to changing my original assumption.

Below, I’ve broken down the scene line-by-line, matching each beat with the actor’s delivery and facial reactions (numbered with the corresponding screencap above bc tumblr is being stubborn and won’t let me insert them into a text post) to question the scene’s intentions and what they might suggest about the season ahead. Of course, standard disclaimers apply, this is just one interpretation and your mileage may vary.

newpolishics  asked:

i loved how you included tommy in the last fanart and i'd like to see your headcanons for the character

wow I was actually doodling Tommy when I got your ask.

Here’s what I got with little to no recollection of Tommy Oliver from the original series:

  • Definitely native american.
  • she makes contact with Trini first because she finds her cute and is like “nice hair, you do it yourself?” and Trini is a blubbering gay mess. Kim is mentally assassinating her. Tommy notices.
  • Zack immediately texts Trini like “if you don’t ask her her number, I will” because he DEFINITELY finds her beautiful
  • Tommy enjoys flustering Trini but mostly annoying Kimberly who is very obviously jealous (obviously = except to Trini who’s an oblivious mess). She doesn’t like Kim’s attitude in general, and the feeling is mutual.
  • She ends up actually bonding with Zack over teasing Trini and Kim and eventually reciprocates his attraction
  • She definitely befriends all of them (it’s still a bit complicated with Kim because damn that girl can hold a grudge and be a stubborn ass) and often plays basketball or football with Jason.. she is TALL and likes sports, ok
  • SHE DEF HAS A MOTORCYCLE and Billy helps her out with it once in a while. She doesn’t let anyone else ride it tho, they can sit behind her but THAT’S IT.
  • Kim: What kind of high schooler has a motorcycle that big… and bright green.. like *mocking voice* I’m Tommy Oliver everyone look at me I need everyone’s attention at all time
  • Jason: Kimberly stop, she is nice
  • Kim: KiMbErLy StOp ShE iS NiCe
  • Jason: Oh my god
  • They take Tommy getting the green coin pretty okay, a little awkwardly maybe but overall it goes well. However Trini gets very uncomfortable, still having bad memories of Rita. 
  • Kim and her definitely fist fight at some point, because Tommy was too reckless during a fight against a big villain and almost got Billy injured and Trini killed and that was The Last Straw that made Kim snap
  • Once they finally got all that tension out, they have a heart-to-heart and become inseparable and Zack and Trini love it as much as they hate it because they are INSUFFERABLE

“People say, ‘She only got that [role] because of her mom.’ Yeah, yeah I did.” Lourd admits with sincerity, “But what would you have done if you got offered a role in Star Wars? Say ‘no?’ That’s even more pretentious.”
