“Theon is misjudged hes confused he wants to be honourable like the starks but at the same time he wants to prove to the Greyjoys that he is one of them as well”

“reek reek it rymes with freak it rhymes with weak ..and ..i forgot the rest?”

“i dont think he( Theon) is evil there is a human side to him and i do relate to him a bit”
“good old robb he wouldnt be very proud of me would he? well maybe a  little bit”

“he (peter Dinklage- Tyrion) was my inspiration in the first series he made it look so effortless  i think that affected the way i did things in series two”

so why do you think he (kit Harington) is such a good actor?”

“he got all his acting tips from me.”

(pre season 3 interview)  “you havent read the books?”

“ive read the first three?”

oh. youve no idea whats coming”

“well no i dont really people say this to me theyre `have you read it’ and im like `no i havent  i dont know ‘and they just go `dude come here’ and put their arm around me”

“It really was demoralizing at times. It was hard. It was really, really hard. There’s a scene later on where I basically just fucking broke down. I remember Iwan, on the day, didn’t really know if he should continue or if he should just stop, because I was really really, really breaking down. That’s one scene I’m definitely excited to see.”

“The actor who plays Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) is a very strong actor and Alfie is his equal match.They have such chemistry you really feel it. When they just look at one another – or if they don’t – you go “oof!” You feel it. It goes right into the core.” Game of Thrones director Alik Sakharov

“ every time im more inspired by him. every single scene he does blows my mind hes so underappreciated so many people underestimate alfie and dont give him the recognition he deserves” sophie turner (sansa stark)

Theon Greyjoy never knew who he was

Theon Greyjoy arguably has the most tragic plotline is asoiaf. But what I think really breaks my heart when I read his chapters is the realisation that he’s probably never going to be able to completely regain his identity, because he never really had one in the first place.

A lot of Theon’s early plotline revolved around his inability to be a Stark or a Greyjoy. He was born a Greyjoy, but then a captive of the Starks for so long that he lost a lot of what made him ironborn, and that’s still very apparent when he becomes Reek.

Whenever Theon, as Reek, tries to remember who he was, it changes. Sometimes, he remembers himself as Ironborn

“I was ironborn. A son… a son of Pyke, of the islands.”

“Ironborn. I was ironborn. Balon Greyjoy’s son and rightful heir to Pyke.”

Other times, however, Theon talks of himself as the ward at Winterfell. And while he was a captive, it’s rather apparent he suffered with Stockholm Syndrome, and always wanted to be a Stark.

“I was a ward of Eddard Stark, a friend and a brother to his children.”

“I was a boy here before the war. A ward of Eddard Stark”

And one of the most poignant moments for Theon in the books is when he rather bluntly expresses that he has no idea who he is.

“Theon found himself wondering if he should say a prayer. Will the old gods hear me if I do? They were not his gods, had never been his gods. He was ironborn, a son of Pyke, his god was the Drowned God of the islands… but Winterfell was long leagues from the sea. It had been a lifetime since any god had heard him. He did not know who he was, or what he was, why he was still alive, why he had ever been born.”

The only identity Theon truly has is that of a captive, he’s used to that and can fall back into very easily, but other than that, he never really knew who he was enough to ever go back to himself. He also almost always uses past tense when talking about himself as ironborn, which suggests he personally doesn’t think he has any of that left in him. If he was ever to recover from his ‘Reek’ identity, he would probably have to create another whole new identity for himself, which he most likely doesn’t have the strength to do.

anonymous asked:

Why did Theon's hair turn white?

   Some people say that it happened because of all the stress, pain, fatigue, fright, etc. In the real world, that only causes loss of hair. So I read an article and found out that emotional trauma can turn your hair grey in months or even weeks. I don’t know if that is actually true, but considering that he spent months being tortured emotionally and physically, that might be right. 

   Concerning his loss of hair, in addition to what I said before, it might have also happened because of the starvation; and even when he was allowed to eat, it was just something easy to ingest and that wouldn’t hurt his mouth. Because of that, I don’t think he’ll ever have enough nutrients to grow his hair normally again. 

No Time for Rhyme

When the English tongue we speak.
Why is break not rhymed with weak?
Won’t you tell me why it’s true
That we say sew but also few?
And the maker of a verse
Cannot rhyme his horse with worse.
Beard is not the same as heard
Cord is different from word.
Cow is cow but low is low
Shoe is never rhymed with foe.
Think of hose and dose and lose.
Think of goose and yet of choose.
Think of comb, tomb and bomb,
Doll and roll and home and some.
And since pay is rhymed with say
Why not paid with said I pray?
Think of blood and food and good.
Mould is not pronounced like could.
Wherefore done, but gone and lone -
Is there any reason known?
To sum up all, it seems to me
That sounds and letters don’t agree.


Thanks to Liam McCarney for this

Will Solace

Okay so Will Solace is important to me
And I never see headcanons for HIM
I see Solangelo ones
Never just Will

So here you go
- He’s really terrible with names and he’s labeled at least SIX of his little brothers “Hey You ” and calls literally all his sisters “Princess Insert Name Here”
And so every single Apollo camper is JEALOUS when Will comes home muttering about Nico
“ oh so you remembered HIS name after a day but you live with me ten years and ya don’t know MY name?”

- he’s totally clueless with children under the age of five and will just hand them off to Nico
- HE SINGS IN HIS SLEEP
-You know how some people sing in the shower?THIS nerd fucking plays GUITAR in the shower
-He collects song titles and artist names like it’s his mission in life to know every singer there ever was
-HE HATES NURSERY RHYMES
-his weakness is COOKIES
-This nerd is afraid of dogs
-He eats sunflower seeds like they’re going extinct ( they are , because of HIM)
- he’s allergic to nuts

One day, one rhyme- Day 545

Grey haired dame has found my weakness,
Don’t confuse her looks with meekness.
Running rings around my writing,
Her word is never worth fighting.
At English, does more than dabble.
Formidable foe at scrabble
Picking out all my misspelling,
I’d rather in hell be dwelling!
Demons, krakens aren’t as scary:
Grandma with a dictionary.
