the world of ice and fire + the north and dorne

Archmaester Brude, who was born and raised in the shadow city that huddles beneath the crumbling walls of Sunspear, once famously observed that Dorne has more in common with the distant North than either does with the realms that lie between them. “One is hot and one is cold, yet these ancient kingdoms of sand and snow are set apart from the rest of Westeros by history, culture, and tradition. Both are thinly peopled, compared to the lands betwixt. Both cling stubbornly to their own laws, their own gods, their own traditions. Neither was ever truly conquered by the dragons. The King in the North accepted Aegon Targaryen as his overlord peaceably, whilst Dorne resisted the might of the Targaryens valiantly for almost two hundred years, before finally submitting to the Iron Throne through marriage. Dornishmen and Northmen alike are derided as savages by the ignorant of the five ‘civilized’ kingdoms, and celebrated for their valor by those who have crossed swords with them.”

  • “My fave is way better than your dusty problematic fave”
  • Sings your songs ALL THE TIME
  • In the shower, when he’s walking, in the car, while he’s working, in the morning when he wakes up, right before he goes to sleep, HE SINGS YOUR SONGS ALL THE TIME
  • He wants all his friends to love you and be your fan because YOU DESERVE ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD but at the same time he doesn’t want them to be your fan because HE IS THE ONE WHO DESERVES YOUR LOVE, NOT THEM


  • One of your most supportive fans tbh

I will make a full post about these lil cuties soon~!

people are quick to list reasons why Paul shouldnt be AFP but

Natalie has
-Slut shamed Zakiyah many times
-Made racists comments about James on multiple occassions
-Said Paul sexually harrassed her so that James could target him, when the feeds have shown it was a lie
-said she was shocked James could get someone as pretty as his baby mama
-used Paul’s religion as a reason to target him
-called Paul a POS, and has insulted Victor and Paul

-said she wanted paul to be miserable on his last week (this sounds a little like bullying doesnt it) -thinks feminism is when women go against men

Michelle has
-bullied Bridgette
-bullied Tiffany
-also used Paul’s religion and accused him of something things he was not
-accused Paul to have bribed teachers

if you dont want paul for afp because of his problematicness, maybe you should stop and think about these other frontrunner for afp too.

paul owns up to his problematicness unlike others who are constantly saying how good of a person they are.

This is not a “my fave is better than your fave” btw. paul is just as problematic as natalie. :) :) accept it :) :) and both are frontrunners for AFP.

Liam girls: omg daddy payne daddy payne! spank me!

Zayn girls: idc what you say my fave is better than your fave and youre in denial.

Harry girls: Harry’s hair is always perfect. Harry isnt Harry without his tattoos. bandana beanie beanie bandana. FETUS! dont argue with me.


Niall girls: whatever he does makes me so so happy he is so cute look how he laughs look how he adoooorable! OMG HE TOUCHED HIS PENIS YES FUCK ME

treat all one direction members as adults because that’s what they are, nobody in the band is an angel, nobody is completely innocent all of the time. this “my fave is better than your fave” bullshit is getting us nowhere you’re completely losing the point in the unneeded pettiness.

reasons why tyra collette is good for tim riggins

  • she calls him out on his shit like alllll the time
  • she loVES HIM MORE THAN ANYBODY IN HIS LIFE DOES more than billy, more than lyla, more than anyone
  • she is motivated and tim needs motivation on a lot of things
  • they both are really good at sex with each other so that’s nice
  • she won’t let him settle for anything less than the best
  • she sees that he has dreams (even if they aren’t as extravagant as her’s) and appreciates that
  • once again it is impossible to bullshit tyra like impossible. “there’s no bullshitting the bullshitter” lets be honest
  • tyra also comes from a crap family background so she knows what tim goes through
  • she loves him so much did i stress that enough. she loves herself even more though and that’s why she doesn’t let him hurt her (cue season 1 in that episode where he was all like “take me back” and she’s like “no i care about myself sorry” - thankfully tim grew up a bit)
  • she admitted she’s loved him since they were five years old
  • “mayeb our dreasm can merge together" *cryING*
  • one problem i always had with tim & lyla was that she was always trying to like, fix him and make him better, when really tim doesn’t need fixing he just needs someone to love him as he is!!1!!!!! and tyra does that!!! i feel like when tim looks at lyla he just sees all the wrong things he’s done and failed at but when he looks at tyra he sees someone who understands and loves him anyway??????/???
Cami Stans...

Do you ever just suddenly feel really proud and weirdly self-contended knowing that Cami O’Connell, the little human psychology student who’s hated on so much because she’s supposedly “boring” and a rip-off, but who you love anyways…

…caught the eye and eventually stole the heart of Niklaus Mikaelson, the 1000 year old original hybrid to whom humans are primarily food, the main character of the show, loved by the whole fandom, part of at least 3 other huge ships and producer Michael Narducci’s absolute favorite?

Because I do.

We,Kpop fans, should make peace. Yes, my faves are better than yours, and yes, your faves are better than mine. Everyone ones faves are the best and kings/queens. It’s ok for a person to think that way. We don’t need to rudely state it or rudely put one down because they said it. Big Bang is the best imo. But it’s ok if you think that EXO or Infinite or whoever is the best. That’s your opinion, not mine. I’m not going to judge you, so you shouldn’t judge me too.

anonymous asked:

what black widow has that other heroes or heroines dont that make you appreciate her so much?

I don’t necessarily want to say that she has something that others don’t, because that can very quickly spiral into “my fave is so much better than your fave!” territory and I seriously don’t want to go there. 

I will say that back when The Avengers came out, I was a casual Marvel fan at best. I wasn’t really into comics, and though I enjoyed the films, I wasn’t particularly obsessive about them. As anyone who follows my personal blog knows, “casual” doesn’t really cover it anymore, whereas “obsessive” is fairly accurate. What inspired this change? One Natasha Romanoff. 

It was the scene with Loki in the cage that really hooked me. An assassin with a dark and bloodstained past, someone who was once very probably a villain in their own right but now worked towards their redemption? Almost all of the fiction I’d consumed in my life told me that such a story was solely the province of male characters. I was intrigued, and spent the rest of the film hoping for more tidbits about what made this complicated woman tick. Or, as I stated rather inelegantly about a year ago: 

I hadn’t read a single Black Widow comic (or Marvel comic, for that matter) before I saw The Avengers. It’s due entirely to the tantalizing hints of deep backstory they gave us in the film that I even bothered to pick up a comic to learn more about this woman who was clearly holding so much inside her. Her scene with Bruce that I quoted earlier was such a morsel.  A child forced into the life of a spy? Tell me more, please! Her scene at the cage was another. Red in her ledger? A set of skills she didn’t care who she used them for or on? Sao Paulo, Dreykov’s daughter, the hospital fire? Tell meeee! And then the scene with Barton? Someone had unmade her? And she was still standing, still striving for redemption? Cue the incoherent squeals of pure want.

And last, but most definitely not least, you have this puny little human with (as of now) no superpowers and no metal suits, only two little guns and her own body, who has seen all of the “heroes” scatter to the wind and for all she knows won’t be coming back, and she says I’m going to fight. There might not be anyone beside me when I do, but I am going to stand up against an army of gods and monsters, and I am going to fight.

It didn’t stop there. On the comic front, MCU!Natasha made me seek out and fall just as in love with her comic book counterpart, which in turn made me burrow my way through the larger pantheon of incredible Marvel women. And when it came to the movies, it seemed as though no matter how many times I watched the same scenes, I’d discover another layer to this character I hadn’t seen before. The Winter Soldier only added to that, making her increasingly complex, more so than I thought would be possible, given that she’s only ever sharing the screen with others, rather than having her own film in which to develop.

I love the Black Widow for many, many reasons, but none more so than this: Natasha was the hero that was never supposed to be. She wasn’t originally intended to be an Avenger. As Hawkeye said, she’s spy, not a soldier. She deals in deception, never seeking out the front lines, purposely avoiding the spotlight. Yet in the end, both in The Avengers and in The Winter Soldier, her genuine desire to balance her ledger, to make the sacrifice play, makes her exactly what she never expected to be: a hero.

Ok, why hasn’t anyone on my feed mentioned this? You guys are letting me down; I rely on you for Hiddles posts.

It’s especially funny because I noticed a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s soap earlier and the label had on it the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling. And I realized I know that poem because Tom tweeted it (I think; or it might’ve been in an interview) back in the day and I looked it up to read it in its entirety.
