The casts of The Lion King and Aladdin in a Sing-Off on Good Morning America

I've seen you reblogging Jon/Dany stuff and I'm curious how likely you think that level of love/romance would be in the coming canon. Even putting aside whatever state Jon is going to be in post-resurrection, I'm not sure their past relationships suggest that each would be the other's type for instant attraction, and I don't know if they'd have time to develop much of a relationship what with the oncoming winter apocalypse. Or is it just a ship people like the idea of but don't expect?

Oh no, I don’t think the all-American, crewcut, boy-next-door Jon Snow we’ve seen in AGOT - ADWD is Dany’s type for instant attraction at all! 

Dany’s the type who likes rockstars with wild hair, and the power and danger of a big ol’ Harley-Davidson between her legs. She’s looking for a maverick fighter pilot from Top Gun to ride one of her dragons.  She wants a rebel with a cause, not a lost, grieving boy. I don’t think the Jon Snow we know is the type of guy Dany’s looking for!

But Jon Snow died. ;)

In the words of the King, “The person you put up there ain’t the person that comes back. It might look like that person, but it ain’t that person” (Pet Semetary). “Resurrection… ah, there’s a word (that you should put right the fuck out of your mind and you know it).”

GRRM has said that “Death is hard.” It changes a person. Look at the Lightning Lord. Look at Lady Stoneheart. They remember, but they’re not the same people anymore. I think Jon Snow, after spending some time in Ghost, is going to come back wilder. More reckless, more dangerous, more … rockstar. So I think Dany will find Jon very attractive.

(Will TWOW please come out soon, because my ASOIAF / pop culture analogies are getting wilder and wilder.) 

So anyways, you can’t just “put aside” Dragonriding Rockstar Jesus Jon Snow and his Resurrection, or his Freefolk Groupies on the tv show, or his tv manbun when considering the potential for Jon/Dany. The resurrection – and the change it will bring – is a big reason why I think Jon/Dany has potential.

So how likely do I think there will be love/romance between Jon/Dany in canon? I’m certain of it. I think Jon and Dany will grow very close as they fight together to save the world, and I think that’s a beautiful thing. I’ll wager money on Jon/Dany falling in love in the books before the end of ADOS; any takers? First come, first served

Concept: the Paladins soaring toward battle, in their lions, all singing Bohemian Rhapsody together over radio.

Because they’re stressed, they need an outlet, and there’s no rock song quite as unifying as Bohemian Rhapsody.

Lance hits all the high notes. Shiro is the only one who knows all the correct words; everyone else just kind of mumbles or babbles through the complex phrases. Keith just hums the guitar and piano solos. Hunk and Pidge got the “Galileo” and “WE WILL NOT LET YOU GO / LET HIM GOOOO” phrases on lock.

Listening over the radio, Allura is sure they’ve all lost their goddamn minds. Coran is highly amused because in Altea, that song would have been the stuff Baby Einstein is made of.

  • One person: I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love

So for some reason, I started singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight and I realised I don’t really know who originally wrote it. Turns out, it was written in 1939 as Mdube by Solomon Linda in Zulu and performed by The Evening Birds.

He was completely ripped off by The Weavers and other western musicians because they thought his music was “simply tribal”. That’s not all.

Like, what the fuck? He wrote one of the most iconic songs of all time and died in poverty. This wasn’t the 1800s. Black artists are still disenfranchised because of western ignorance and institutionalised racism.

Since it’s black history month, I thought I’d share this.

Listen to the original song, it’s brilliant.
