my favorite kind of time wasting

I stopped shaving my legs every other day
I stopped only eating citras and drinking a gallon of water a day
I started smoking weed with my friends
I stopped bringing my phone with me to Temple, to coffee houses, to record stores, to concerts
I stopped ignoring my family and started baking cookies and pancakes with bananas and nuts and apples
I’ve made 32 pancakes since Friday,
I’ve burnt 13 but I’m getting there
I won’t let you burn me anymore I’m so fucking sick of flames
Turns out I don’t get off on pain
I don’t get off on being treated like a toy
I do not enjoy having a collection of sticky notes covered in conversation topics because you never held up your end
It’s true that one person always loves more but the other side needs to give something
You knew this would happen I have to go for my own self respect
I should’ve known when you stopped sending good morning texts
Or when your texts didn’t come at all until
late at night
When your words were always about sex
Maybe I should have turned my phone off or blocked your number when you told me about the first girl
Or the second or the third
But I thought you were worth it that I’d never find a better guy
You always listened you respected my boundaries
It’s probably easy when you have six other girls who will give you what I protect
I’m not picking up this time
I’m not checking your timeline I’m not listening to your music
I’m not dying my hair your favorite color or getting a tattoo
You don’t deserve my kind of love
Not from me,
You deserve a quiet love that won’t take up too much time
You killed me over and over again
You wasted and
disrespected me without even noticing
My heart has been replaced with beetles and old peach pits but soon
You won’t live there anymore to poison my wood
Flowers will bloom in my brain once again
Watered by my own love and confidence
Planted by me for me
You will never see them
Lilacs and roses were my favorite before you
Fuck your daisies you’re the one who cut them down
—  I Always Grow Back
170619 Naver Today’s Music - Summer Songs Recommended By BTS

Jungkook’s recommendation: Steve Aoki, Louis Tomlinson - Just Hold On

“Exciting songs are a must when it comes to summer right? The more you listen to this song, the better your mood will be, it’s great for summer.”

Jungkook’s recommendation: One Ok Rock - We Are

“When you sweat and are tired because of the hot weather, you can find your inner peace by listening to this song. If you turn it on so loud as if your earphones are going to burst, it’ll give you strength no matter how hot and frustrated you feel.”

Jimin’s recommendation: YUI - Good-Bye Days

“It’s a song I have been listening to a lot since I was young. I don’t know since when but I have come to listen to this song whenever I feel good, tired or sad, regardless of the season. I think it’s a good song to enjoy when summer comes too.

Jimin’s recommendation: Sara Bareilles - Love Song

“This song makes your mood better just from listening to it. I want to listen to this song in the summer too.”

V’s recommendation: Chet Baker - Blue Room

“This is a song by my favorite trumpeter Chet Baker. It suits summer nights too. I want to make a song with this kind of mood.”

V’s recommendation: Sigur Ros - All Alright

“I like songs that can be listened to at dawn the most. It’s a good song to listen to when walking on the bridge at dawn in the summer. This is also one of the songs with styles that I want to try composing among my favorite songs.”

J-hope’s recommendation: Jazzyfact - Waste Of Time

“A song that expresses well the feeling of wasting time staying at home in the beautiful summer. Whenever I listen to this song, I want to go out and play.”

Rap Monster’s recommendation: Frank Ocean - Super Rich Kids

“The first song that comes to my mind when talking about summer. It has just the right amount of excitement and relaxation. I want to listening to this song and lie down on the tube, floating on the water. It makes me feel like a ‘super rich kids’ like the title.”

Rap Monster’s recommendation: Peppertones - Ready, Get Set, Go!

“If Frank Ocean’s song is the sea or swimming pool, this song makes me think of the mountain or park.

Such a simple thing like that makes me more excited and enjoy the summer more.”

Jin’s recommendation: Julia Michaels - Issues

“I listened to this song for the first time when I went to Billboard Music Awards not long ago. Seeing her welled up with emotions and cried after the performance ended made me feel ‘So that’s emotions’. Her voice’s really beautiful, I hope many people will listen to this when summer comes.”

Jin’s recommendation: Luis Fonsi, Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee - Despacito

“This song makes you feel like you’re at a festival in South America. A perfect song to dance to alone when you wake up in the morning and take a shower. I get excited for no reason from listening to this song.”

some makeup tips for lower-budget beginners

hello younger girls, trans girls, and anyone who wants to learn how to do makeup and doesn’t have $3k to drop on a kit, here’s a compilation of things i’ve learned doing makeup on myself and others over the years, and overspending on like, everything

- if you’re going to invest in anything, invest in foundation that won’t clog your pores/irritate your skin
- nyx has good eyeshadow singles
- nyx primer is also a+
- nyx is just great ok
- morphe palettes are twice as big as sephora palettes and half the price, and they’re almost (if not equally) as good.
- if you’re spending over 8$ on mascara you probably have something to prove
- take care of your skin your makeup will look 10x better if you do
- makeup wipes are convenient but overpriced and wasteful: garnier miscellar water is like $6.50, works better, and lasts a long time. put it on a paper towel or a kleenex or a cotton pad.
- beauty blenders are just fancy sponges that soak up your product and grow bacteria. don’t let instagram tell you you need one
- all the brushes you need: foundation (there are lots of kinds, my favorite is a japonesque round tapered synthetic brush), big fluffy powder, little fluffy blender for crease, little flat one for eyelid, medium fluffy cheek brush, eyeliner brush (angle or tiny skinny one, whichever you like better. sephora has an amazing angle liner brush for ~$14), brow brush if your aren’t using gel. the rest are great but you can do a full face with just those 7.
- don’t use creams with natural hair brushes. morphe + real techniques have great synthetic ones.
- maybelline 24 hour tattoo gel eyeliner is $9 and better than every gel liner i’ve ever used
- light-medium foundation with buildable coverage: one foundation for everyday and full glam
- colourpop’s lip products are ~$6 each and they’re amazing
- spray brush cleaner!!!!!!!!! (you can use rubbing alcohol but it can dry out natural hair brushes, and make sure it’s dry before putting it near your eyes bc that shit hurts)
- buy lashes online, buy duo lash glue at cvs
- HALLOWEEN STORE GLITTER (make sure it’s cosmetic grade!)

Spencer Hastings: the rundown

I’d like to applaud the growth of Spencer Hastings over the course of the series- and I don’t think the growth stopped at 7a.

Here’s my spencer character rundown.

Season 1:

Spencer was portrayed as the little sister that’s always in her older sister’s shadows—however I think Spencer is way smarter than Melissa. She let’s pressure get the best of her as well as repeating past mistakes(i.e keeping her lip’s on Melissa’s men). I love how her and Toby’s relationship began, I think that they brought out the open-mindedness of both of the character.

Season 2:

I don’t know about all of you but I knew if one liar would get trapped with A in the end, I knew it’d be Spencer. This was Spencer’s investigative season. She asked the right questions and found out things she did and didn’t want to know. I do wish they would’ve gone a different route when she found out Jason was her brother- I low-key hoped that they would develop a better brother sister bond. I’m proud that she finally spoke up to her father in this season. We also got a glimpse of her selflessness by sacrificing her relationship with Toby to keep him safe.

Season 3:

Spoby reunions - I live for them. It was a classy “first time” scene. This season was so bomb for her. One of my all time favorite moments was when she slapped Toby when she saw him in that hoodie *chills*. This season gave her so much depth-i.e when she thought Toby was dead which lead to her going to Radley. The whole fake A team ploy was kind of weak but served it’s purpose for the time being.

Season 4:

I’m glad she supported Toby in the whole figuring out what happened to his mother thing—even though it wasn’t my favorite storyline.

Season 5:

Well this was a season where she was in 2 too many jumpsuits. I feel like they were really trying to pin random crimes on her. I got chills when the were being arrested when Alison was found guilty. I thought it was creepy that Melissa was being nice to her. Also, I found her “love interests” - Colin and Johnny- stupid and a waste of time. I didn’t approve of her trying to use Toby to get information since he became a cop

Season 6:

Her addiction resurfaced in 6a and after some point I was over it. I think she was an asset to the big picture but she was extremely obsessive with the Charles thing which I’ll get to later. Let’s get to the 5 years forward I’m so happy that they did because I got tire of them being in high school. Although a career in politics was a given to her I love the 23 year old Spencer, even more sophisticated than ever. What I’m about to say may piss people off but I loved Spaleb. I think that their relationship made a lot of sense they’re both mature, responsible, good, intelligent and kind hearted people. It made sense and they were so cute together for the short time that it lasted. I know they get a lot of flack but at the end of the day Hanna and Caleb had been broken up for years and in those years he and Spencer were getting close so I don’t want to hear that’s a out of the blue situation. Also Hanna and Caleb had not seen each other since their break up and same goes for Spencer and Toby. I’m a Haleb fan and a Spoby fan but get over it ppl.

Season 7: Even though not much has happened and I’ll probably end up updating this whole blog post at the end of the series lets do this anyways. I think Spencer being Mary’s daughter was inevitable lets get that out of the way first. Mary always had a weird vibe when coming around her so I wasn’t surprised she was her biological daughter. But might I add that I’m tired of every time a big family twist happens, it’s always involving the Hastings or Dilaurentis families. I think they could’ve gone with Aria or Hanna or someone else. I feel like this was done to keep Mary relevant to the big picture. It explains why Spencer was so obsessive when trying to figure out Charles but if she gets a sibling vibe, why didn’t she have it with Cece if they’re the same person. I don’t like the chain reacted that’ll be set off if Peter is her biological father and not adopted father. Peter being Spencer’s real father not only means that he stepped out on Veronica twice(who doesn’t deserve it bc I think she’s a great person, but did so with twins. That means that Spencer and Jason are first cousins and half siblings and that’s a little too close for comfort. And even though I was sad she got shot, I know she didn’t die so I’m good

Fave moments so far:

The showdown when she found out Mona was A

Her style

When she broke up with Toby in order to protect him from A’s wrath

“bitch crazy”

“bitch chipped us”

Spoby’s first time

Asking Toby if she could kiss him one last time 😍

Spoby in general

Spaleb arc - “I need you to go get a glass, ‘cause your girlfriends drinking all by herself and it’s real sad”

What I want from her in the final 10 episodes:

A Spoby wedding

Her to reject Mary as her mother(harsh, I know, but Veronica has been a great mother to her and Mary has been a backstabbing snake since the day she showed up). I kind of wish Mary was just the surrogate.

Spencer helping Toby get through Yvonne dying and letting him feel again. Closer bond with Jason(won’t happen)

So that new Camp Camp trailer dropped . . .

And you know, it’s be super weird if someone went through and screenshot every second their favorite character was on screen, especially when they’re a minor character no one else gives a shit about. What a ridiculous waste of time who would ever bother to do 



(and no I couldn’t get rid of the title bar just deal with it)

Chocobro Music Headcanons

So for my first headcanon I’m going to elaborate on what I think what kind of music the bros listen to; rather in the car or just when they are hanging out by themselves.


Totally into classic rock. This boy will definitely waste a day playing video games and just listening to classic rock. Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd… you name it, he loves it. His all time favorite: The Doors. When he takes the Regalia’s wheel you can bet he’s going to BLAST “Break on Through” over and over until one of the guys begs him to turn it off. 


The little ball of sunshine will listen to anything and everything. Literally, scrolling through his MP3 player he has every genre from Alternative to Rap. He is all over the place. He’s not afraid to share his music either. You can bet he is stealing the Regalia’s AUX cord whenever he has the chance. The other bros sometimes shoot him looks of surprise when country music, screamo, or even K-POP comes through the speakers. Prompto could care less, though. He will sing every word to every song with great confidence. 


This boy is all for rock music and he’s the totally type to play air drums in the car (Prompto hates it, because the back of his chair is Gladio’s bass drum. Poor baby). He is so into Metallica, Drangonforce, and the Deftones. Play that music loud and proud, my boy. 


Bless his soul for dealing with the other bro’s music choices. Iggy is really into classical music. He’s definitely has bought tickets to see a live orchestra numerous times.  While the other boys think his music choice is “boring” Ignis takes pride in it. He finds classical music to be very relaxing and stimulating. He thinks it is truly amazing how composers are able to express so much emotion in a piece without lyrics. 

… He totally hums “Mars: Bringing of War” by Gostav Holts in battle. 

Review for Nameless

Just as a warning: possible spoilers, TMI about my personal life, and oversharing. This is also going to end up being a review of sorts for every game I’ve played in the Otome Game Category, so I have a feeling this is going to eat up a big part of my life for the next week or so.

My absolute favorite, of all the games I’ve played so far, has to be Nameless: The One Thing You Must Recall. Now, I know that I’ve mostly been reblogging Mystic Messenger art and headcanons like crazy, and that Mystic Messenger seems to be my favorite, but I have some really good reasons why I chose Nameless as my #1.

Nameless is an otome game that is entirely choice-dependent, meaning there’s no grinding for stats or anything that can influence the outcome of your endings aside from some very very important choices. I personally love these kinds of games, as every decision I make brings me closer to the people I care about instead of stats, and each decision opens up a new dimension to that character without wasting my time. I also love the fact that I can blast through Nameless at my own pace, which is definitely something that I struggled with in Mystic Messenger.

Nameless opened new doors inside of me that I never knew were there. I felt deeply for all of the characters, and while my heart belongs primarily to Lance and Tei, I was heavily attached to all the others. To be completely honest, I have a fear of Yandere characters, primarily because I’m very sensitive to abusive relationships after being psychologically abused by my mother (sorry, TMI, right?). Nameless brought forth a cast of characters that I felt deeply for, not only in their main “dateable cast”, but also in their secondary characters. I fell hard for Soi and Shinbi (the MC’s best friends) and treasured the appearances of other characters like the Principal, Yujin, Zion, and Hobin. I went so far as to call Soi and Shinbi my wives, which was the first time I’d ever really felt so much for characters to call them by those titles.

Lance was by far my favorite in this story although he’s technically part of the “common route”. I liked Tei too, of course, but something about Lance just broke me. This is a very vague spoiler, since I still hope that this list does convince some people to play this game, but I really connected to Lance’s fear of abandonment, of not being good enough. I definitely have anxiety about being left behind or being replaced, and he has an extremely deep relationship with the MC if his route is pursued. To be honest, I’m a wholehearted monogamist, so his possessiveness does speak to me, but even more so, the realization that this cynical, rational person trusted me enough to open up his heart to me was mindblowing.

Lance taught me that even if I don’t consider myself special, there are people in my lives who definitely do. And this idea of your significant other becoming your world…well, that’s just a philosophy that I live by.

Those aside, in regards to the more technical parts of Nameless: the skipping mechanic has always been accurate and easy for me to use. I did have some difficulty with the volume of everything, as the voices tend to be pretty quiet in comparison to the background music, so I had to do a bit of adjusting before I felt comfortable. The soundtrack, however, is fantastic. The light-hearted tunes really made me relax and the creepy, music-box tracks always made my spine tingle. The voices are also amazingly soothing and I personally have a weakness for the way that Yuri says “Darling”.

The secondary characters are also amazing; they’ve made me laugh and feel wholeheartedly accepted in so many different instances that I’m amazed by how immersed I felt in this game. Soi and Shinbi were often times more considerate and accepting than some of the friends that I had made in my life, and there’s an overall feeling of warmth from all the characters despite their quirks and weird moments.

For a breakdown (out of 10):

MC = 8. The MC for Nameless was definitely sassier than most of the MCs that I’ve had the privilege to play as, and she’s made me laugh a couple of times with how innocent she can be. But I’ve had to dock a couple of points off primarily because she is almost distracting innocent. There were a couple of points where her sassiness was definitely on my level, but she didn’t really feel like a “strong, independent” protagonist to me. There were many times where she fell into the stereotype of “innocent, quiet, and gullible” that I see a lot in Otome MCs.

Dateable Cast = 9. Pretty amazing, both in their own routes and others. I did feel some romance kindle in routes that I had originally no interest in and I still felt appreciative of characters’ roles in routes that didn’t belong in.

Secondary Cast = 10. I loved all of the secondary characters; they added tension where I needed it, broke the ice when it was necessary, and were wholesomely loveable on their own. Soi and Shinbi earn a standing ovation from me because of how appreciative I was of their warmth and overall kindness toward my MC, as well as their adorable relationship dynamic.

OST = 10. The soundtrack felt fitting where it needed to be. I’m honestly in love with the music from Nameless, and since I’m a sucker for nostalgia, I loved the moments where the main theme (which is a beautiful music box-esque piece) would come out and imbue me with a sense of nostalgia.

Mechanics = 10. I’ve never had this game crash on me, never had any stuck screens, nada. This game has always run smoothly for me.

CGs = 9. The CGs are beautiful and consistent. Of course there are a few here and there that I didn’t like as much (the way the hair was drawn was a little weird, or it felt like some characters got nicer backgrounds than others), but overall, the CGs were stunning.

Overall Score = 56/60. Bravo Cheritz! You made an amazing story that has me drowning in nostalgia, learning more about myself, and feeling honored to know all the characters you have created.

Art, craft, colossal waste of time…? XD

The two YoSD pairs still need to be photographed for @woolstrung, I have one pair on the needles (yellow/gold, about 75% completed, that will hopefully be done soon), and enough skeins for two more pairs before I’m out of yarn (and my favorite dyer is currently on hiatus). After that, I’ll need to figure out something else to do… ^^;;

It’s kind of nice to see them all together like this, though! <3

virtue, deanxrowena, 1.4K for @silver9mm, bby I want to be your dirty little teacup <3


Back straight. Chest out. Dean twists his wrists, squeezing his fingers shut in a fist, then letting them uncurl. Breathe in. Breathe out. Shifting his knees, the plastic laid out under him crinkles loudly. She pauses what she’s doing to look at him with a disapprovingly arched eyebrow. It’s as  precise and well painted as the rest of her face.

Dean looks back down, and stills. Quiet.

There’s a rug underneath the plastic, bright red oriental pattern, well padded and he likes doing longer scenes where there’s good carpet instead of the hard wood of her playroom.

Breathe in. Breathe out.

It’s quiet except for the rattle of the teapot’s lid when it’s tipped. Small hands on a bone white china, red roses curling around the top and down the handle. Her nails are painted a soft, muted red that almost matches.

The solarium is flooded with sunlight through ceiling high windows, bushes lining the garden outside providing privacy. The afternoon sunlight glints off the perfectly curled fall of her long red hair, shining on the sequins of her midnight blue dress.

The plastic is loud when Dean shifts again. Chest out. Back straight. Arms folded behind him with hands clasped around forearms - except when he’s fidgeting - the rope harness wrapped around his chest pulls as he moves and Dean appreciates the presence of it. Soft, white rope.

“Hasn’t anyone told you patience is a virtue darling?”

Rowena looks down at him, fingers loosely splayed over the teacup, resting on its lip as they move back and forth, steam curling up in the sunny air.

Dean rolls his eyes, stills again. Quiet.

“Personally, I’m not one for virtue.”

I love how he wins because he counted on her assuming exactly what he wanted her to assume and that she wouldn’t think about what he actually said. And even though I should have known better, it worked on me too. I didn’t even think about the flower in her hair at all until he reached for it and then I was like “OH SNAP”.

He does this kind of thing all the time in DM too. Every time he goes to control an opponents monster he lets them assume that he’s going to pick their strongest one so they’ll waste time protecting it and leave the one he actually wants wide open. I know other duelists do it too, but I think it’s a tactic that Yami is fond of using the most.

Err, sorry about all the words. I get carried away with fangirling sometimes.

Summary: He can’t blame me for the fact that I live in a building full of people united in the singular effort to ogle Hot Fireman as often as humanly possible.” Laura laughs, loud and echoing in the empty restaurant. “Hot firemen can make a girl do crazy things,” she agrees, nodding towards her brother’s name on the menu. “Derek won’t let me date anyone from his company, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the eye candy.”

“Send them my way,” Stiles suggests, finally loading up a forkful of pie. “Apparently I’m incompetent enough that I need to be babysat at all times, because it would be cheaper than dispatching a truck every time I try to use a kitchen appliance.”

Notes: GUYS. THIS IS PERFETION. MY BRAIN MELTED. It was so happy  making you have no idea! Feels, humor, great friendship and just all the little things that will make you smile. LOVE IT! - K.

Sneak Peek:“Oh good, so you’ve come up with a new way to colossally waste everyone else’s valuable time?” Hot Fireman snarls. “Great, that’s great news. What is it now, testing the hot water capacity in all the showers until the steam makes the alarms go off?” (Stiles hadn’t thought of that.)(Apparently Hot Fireman has.)(It’s kind of clever, actually.)

I wanna delete this blog tbh I’m not
Really feeling it anymore like I’m losing interest in the 80s as a whole. I still REALLY LOVE AND CHERISH 80s music but I honestly care for such a select few now. (This might sound harsh) but I feel like it’s a waste of time to devote myself to an era that I was never and never will be a part of and I feel like it’s really limiting. my favorite artists are either dead or will be soon, or they’ve just stopped making new interesting music . I’m just kind of not as enthusiastic as I was and I feel like I can’t run this blog v well anymore.

Road to Recovery
Lyrics: Nishida Shatner
Composition/Arrangement: manzo

Shinkai: My friends bring to me a strange courage, to fight when I had almost given up
My friends shine a light in the pitch-black of despair, and I gradually see before me the guideposts, a course made of light
Hakone Academy (minus Izumida): That serious guy who looks up to me
Hakone Academy (minus Manami): That carefree guy who rides mysteriously
Hakone Academy (minus Toudou): That talkative guy whose climbing is first-class
Hakone Academy (minus Arakita): That guy who pulls us forward
Hakone Academy (minus Fukutomi): That stiff-faced guy with the kind smile underneath
Shinkai: Each of their passions awaken me
Their feelings change my pain into strength
Hakone Academy: Now, let’s move on towards tomorrow
There’s no time to waste looking back
Shinkai: Each of their resolve, I take into my heart
And now, I ride once more

Big Walder the Builder

Endgame speculation is, of course, ambrosia. But it tends to revolve around who will die (and how spectacularly) in the final pushback against the Others, and not what the world will look like once they’ve gone. Bran seems to me the character most intimately connected with the world to come; he’s already come somewhat unstuck in time, his consciousness is gradually transcending his body, the physical world at large, and possibly mortality itself, and he seems the best poised to grasp the totalizing meaning and weight of the collective story of ASOIAF. He’s the time capsule, the memory-vessel, the true narrator.

But that’s at the cosmic level; there are surprisingly few hints as to what Westeros and Essos would actually look like on the ground in the wake of a successful second war for the dawn. This is especially true because most child characters, the generation that will inherit what’s left, are either a) utterly doomed to die before they get there (Tommen, Myrcella, Sweetrobin, Shireen…) or b) suffering in a manner that imprisons them in the present; speculating on the future is time wasted when you’re so busy surviving just to have a future. As such, we don’t necessarily get a good sense of what kind of adults they’ll turn out to be, beyond generally traumatized. 

…there is this one exception, however, and it would probably piss Bran off something awful.

Big Walder Frey is my favorite minor character. This is true in large part because while ruthless ambition is generally corrosive in adults, I find it oddly charming in little kids. Big Walder knows exactly what he wants to do with his life–rule the Twins–at the age of nine, and is committed to that long game with a murderous zen that is adorable and utterly terrifying in equal measure. The great joke of House Frey is that it’s this hateful backbiting snake’s den full to bursting with the worst adults in Westeros, but at the very bottom there’s this little kid that all that venom has just drained into, and he’s entirely composed of it, and he’s going to regurgitate it on anyone between him and his prize…and no one around him seems to notice, even though he is so confident and so ready and so sure that he simply announces what he is going to do to his family, over and over.

“We’re cousins, not brothers,” added Big Walder, the little one. “I’m Walder son of Jammos. My father was Lord Walder’s son by his fourth wife. He’s Walder son of Merrett. His grandmother was Lord Walder’s third wife, the Crakehall. He’s ahead of me in the line of succession even though I’m older.”

“Only by fifty-two days,” Little Walder objected. “And neither of us will ever hold the Twins, stupid.”

“I will,” Big Walder declared. [Translation: I’m going to kill you.]

“Ryman is old too,” said Little Walder. “Past forty, I bet. And he has a bad belly. Do you think he’ll be lord?”

“I’ll be lord. I don’t care if he is.” [Translation: I’m going to kill him…if he doesn’t get himself killed first.]

“Did you find your cousins, my lord?”

“No. I never thought we would. They’re dead. Lord Wyman had
them killed. That’s what I would have done if I was him.” [Translation…not required on that one.]

There isn’t even a little foreshadowing moment like “Maester Luwin looked at Big Walder for a long moment, his eyebrows raised” or “Reek wondered if Hosteen and Aenys knew what they had in their young cousin” or anything like that. The only explanation, of course, is that he’s nine. So no one makes the connection when his cousin turns up dead. 

Snow slid from Ser Hosteen’s cloaks as he stalked toward the high table, his steps ringing against the floor. A dozen Frey knights and men-at-arms entered behind him. One was a boy Theon knew—Big Walder, the little one, fox-faced and skinny as a stick. His chest and arms and cloak were spattered with blood.

The scent of it set the horses to screaming. Dogs slid out from under the tables, sniffing. Men rose from the benches. The body in Ser Hosteen’s arms sparkled in the torchlight, armored in pink frost. The cold outside had frozen his blood.

That’s the other reason to love Big Walder: the classic I May Be Evil But That’s Just Fucked Up moment. Big Walder is willing to kill or let die dozens of his fellow Freys, but the gratuitous pleasure Ramsay takes in inflicting pain is simply beyond his moral event horizon:

Little Walder swung down from the saddle. “You can see to my horse too, Reek. And to my little cousin’s.”

“I can see to my own horse,” said Big Walder. Little Walder had become Lord Ramsay’s best boy and grew more like him every day, but the smaller Frey was made of different stuff and seldom took part in his cousin’s games and cruelties.

Reek paid the squires no mind. He led Blood off toward the stables, hopping aside when the stallion tried to kick him. The hunters strode into the hall, all but Ben Bones, who was cursing at the dogs to stop them fighting over the severed head.

Big Walder followed him into the stables, leading his own mount. Reek stole a look at him as he removed Blood’s bit. “Who was he?” he said softly, so the other stablehands would not hear.

“No one.” Big Walder pulled the saddle off his grey. “An old man we met on the road, is all. He was driving an old nanny goat and four kids.”

“His lordship slew him for his goats?”

“His lordship slew him for calling him Lord Snow.”

(Note that Big Walder talks to Theon as though Theon is, in fact, a human being.)

Of course, Big Walder primarily killed Little Walder because the latter stood ahead of the former in the succession, and because Big Walder realized how easy it would be to frame the Manderlys. (He immediately and intuitively grasps that Wyman had his relatives killed, and uses that information to cover his own murdering. How can you not love my brilliant baby boy) But Big Walder may also have acted out of growing horror at Little Walder becoming “more like [Ramsay] every day.” What was it Lord Wyman said, beholding the corpse and musing internally on recipes?

“So young,” said Wyman Manderly. “Though mayhaps this was a blessing. Had he lived, he would have grown up to be a Frey.”

Perhaps Big Walder feared Little Walder would actually grow up a Bolton.

This sort of thing is necessary, of course, to establish Ramsay’s place at the top (or bottom, I suppose) of ASOIAF’s taxonomy of villains; like Joffrey, he freaks even the other killers out. But GRRM is also emphasizing this contrast between the Walders as a preview of the world to come. Little Walder exemplifies the Westeros that makes me, at some deep horrible level, glad the Others are on their way. The corrupt, arrogant, sadistic Little Walders of the story…well, as usual, Stannis puts it best: 

Stannis glowered up at Theon where he hung. “You are not the only turncloak here, it would seem. Would that all the lords in the Seven Kingdoms had but a single neck… " 

And certainly, most of the Freys will suffer for the Red Wedding, those that haven’t already. But as the noose tightens, the incentives will change for the Freys determined to survive above all else: they will sell out their family.

“A little spittle on Lord Walder’s tomb is not like to disturb the grave worms,” Qyburn agreed, “but it would also be useful if someone were to be punished for the Red Wedding. A few Frey heads would do much to mollify the north.”

“Lord Walder will never sacrifice his own,” said Pycelle.

“No,” mused Cersei, “but his heirs may be less squeamish. Lord Walder will soon do us the courtesy of dying, we can hope. What better way for the new Lord of the Crossing to rid himself of inconvenient half brothers, disagreeable cousins, and scheming sisters than by naming them the culprits?”

It was like to be every son for himself when the old man died, and every daughter as well. The new Lord of the Crossing would doubtless keep on some of his uncles, nephews, and cousins at the Twins, the ones he happened to like or trust, or more likely the ones he thought would prove useful to him. The rest of us he’ll shove out to fend for ourselves.

But Big Walder’s still a little young to wield power at that level; I have another candidate in mind.

…[A]nd after Ryman came his own sons, Edwyn and Black Walder, who were even worse. “Fortunately,” Lame Lothar once said, “they hate each other even more than they hate us.”

Merrett wasn’t certain that was fortunate at all, and for that matter Lothar himself might be more dangerous than either of them. Lord Walder had ordered the slaughter of the Starks at Roslin’s wedding, but it had been Lame Lothar who had plotted it out with Roose Bolton, all the way down to which songs would be played. Lothar was a very amusing fellow to get drunk with, but Merrett would never be so foolish as to turn his back on him.

Lame Lothar Frey, charming and courteous and utterly devious, has no sons of his own, but he does have a nephew; if Lothar were to follow his father as Lord of the Crossing, his heir would be the little boy everyone instinctively calls Big. Remember Osha’s insight into Little Walder?

“The big one they call little, it comes to me he’s well named. Big outside, little inside…”

The reverse is true of Big Walder. My baby contains multitudes.

Even Bran, much as he resents both young Freys for being able to run and play with Rickon, grudgingly recognizes that Big Walder is the worthier of the two.

“These threats are unseemly, and I’ll hear no more of them. Is this how you behave at the Twins, Walder Frey?”

“If I want to.” Atop his courser, Little Walder gave Luwin a sullen glare, as if to say, You are only a maester, who are you to reproach a Frey of the Crossing?

“Well, it is not how Lady Stark’s wards ought behave at Winterfell. What’s at the root of this?” The maester looked at each boy in turn. “One of you will tell me, I swear, or-”

“We were having a jape with Hodor,” confessed Big Walder. “I am sorry if we offended Prince Bran. We only meant to be amusing.” He at least had the grace to look abashed.

Little Walder only looked peevish. “And me,” he said. “I was only being amusing too.”

“Was it Lord Tywin he defeated?” asked Bran.

“No,” said the maester. “Ser Stafford Lannister commanded the enemy host. He was slain in the battle.”

Bran had never even heard of Ser Stafford Lannister. He found himself agreeing with Big Walder when he said, “Lord Tywin is the only one who matters.”

Ser Rodrik reminded him to send something to his foster brothers, so he sent Little Walder some boiled beets and Big Walder the buttered turnips.

(Ok, that last one is a little subjective, but I’d much rather have buttered turnips than boiled beets…no, fuck it, that’s objectively correct. Beets are tolerable as paper-thin splashes of color in a salad. Otherwise, they are hideous alien roots and are never to be trusted.)

The endgame in my head is, in some sense, all about how Big Walder ends up with the Twins, and Skahaz Shavepate ends up with Slaver’s Bay (in retrospect, foreshadowed from his very first appearance), and the Tyrells end up with most if not all of the south. It’s not about the world taking a massive leap forward to utopia or even democracy; it’s about the “long and slow boring of hard boards.” It’s about things getting incrementally better. I will so very take the Tyrells over the Lannisters, the Shavepates over the Sons of the Harpy, and Big Walder over Little Walder. Choosing the lesser evil isn’t a sad half-measure, not in a world where the greater evils are the likes of Ramsay, Gregor, Craster, Rorge…or the Others, above them all. Sometimes, it’s enough to kill the ravaging monsters at the door, and hope the little nine-year-old monster at your side is “the right kind of terrible,” the kind who will rebuild the world…if for no other reason than so he’ll have something to rule.
