or did i just invent it

anonymous asked:

hello hello! i sincerely hope you're doing well. i was intrigued when I heard you say that you studied literature and creative writing at university; i realise that writing is all i'll ever want to do, and i wondered what it was like from a student's perspective, having done the degree. which university did you attend? what did your course involve? did it open up any job opportunities for you? it'd just be nice to have a general understanding of what it entails, as i'm looking into uni etc. :) x

Hi! I went to Royal Holloway University of London! Look at it, it’s beautiful!!

In my first year I had to take four compulsory modules, two from English and two from creative writing. The English modules were called Inventing the Novel (which was on the history of the novel from its conception to the 21st century) and Introducing English Poetry (which is fairly self-explanatory), and the creative writing modules were called Introduction to Creative Writing, which involved 10 weeks on fiction writing, 5 weeks on playwriting and 5 weeks on poetry writing, and Why Write? which was about the theories behind the purpose and value of creative writing. I think the first year modules might have changed slightly now, though - they’re listed here!

In your second year doing English & creative writing at RoHo you get much more choice. You get to drop one area of creative writing and focus more on the other two, so I dropped poetry to focus on fiction writing and playwriting. You also have to choose one full module from a list of five options, which were Medieval literature, Romanticism, Victorian literature, Modernist literature and contemporary debates in critical and literary theory (I took contemporary debates!). You then get to choose two half modules from a much longer list of options, but you have to take either two half modules or one full module in a pre-1780 topic (excluding Shakespeare) over your second and third years, so I took a half module in Theatre and the City, 1590-1625 (I got to do a presentation on Engels and the history of Manchester so that was great) plus a module called Queer Histories which was the highlight of my uni experience!

Then in your third year, you narrow down your creative writing options to one field and produce an independent piece of work, a bit like a dissertation in that there are no classes but you meet with a supervisor regularly so they can check how you’re getting on, and I chose playwriting for that. You then get to pick two out of three half-modules in creative writing out of screenwriting, writing men and writing for children and young adults (I chose the first two). Then for English, you either have to write a dissertation (which I did) or a taught dissertation, which is when you do attend classes (either on a particular author or a particular subject, e.g. children’s literature) and then write an extended essay related to it. You then get to take a further two half modules on top of that, so I took one on gender & writing in the long 18th century to fulfil my pre-1780 requirement (though I actually really enjoyed it), plus a module on literature & philosophy. You can see the current options for second and third year English modules here!!

As to job opportunities, I initially stayed in the position I held while I was at uni, but I’ve also recently been employed by a tutoring agency, and while you don’t need a degree for them to employ you, you do need an English degree to tutor A Level English students, and I have a £2.50 per hour bonus because of my qualifications, one of which is a qualification I have in working with disabled students in higher education, but also because I got a First at uni and because I’ve had work published in journals, which I very much doubt I’d have been able to do without the skills I learnt at uni. Also, if you google ‘English literature degree job opportunities UK’, you’ll find loads of lists of lots of careers that hold English degrees in very high regard!

I hope this helps, and if I can be of any more use, please let me know!! 💕

In which Dearie failed herself and wasn't strong enough not to write another Psycho au

So in tonight’s last movie night until the Gotham finale, we watched Psycho. I’ve been talking myself out of writing a Nygmobblepot Psycho au since joining this fandom because I have one, still unfinished, in another fandom. But tonight I said what the hell with it. Everyone wanted it just as much as I did so have decided to write it and make it official!

Nygmob screams Psycho au!

I haven’t figured out all the details yet, but I will after I get started on it. I know that Edward is my little voyeur son Norman and Oswald is Marion. Harvey is Samuel Lumis and Jim will be the private investigator. I’m also still not sure if Edward will have a mother personality or be more like Dark!Ed who’s an overbearing, overprotective, big brother. Edward invented to protect him from his abusive father….. Oh! Yeah! I like that! I’m gonna go with that!

This will be my next project after the Edward and the Real Boy second chapter and the ficlet prompts in my inbox :)

I can’t wait!

the signs as fake quotes my weird cousin has attributed to famous authors

aries: as oscar Wilde once famously said, ‘fuck men’

taurus: i believe it was percy shelley who wrote ‘why cry over spilled milk when instead u could cry over everything

gemini: you can lead a horse to water, but u can’t make the horse drink that fucking water if it wants vodka instead. sun tzu said that.

cancer: y’know, steinbeck once screamed ‘death to capitalism’ while setting himself on fire, and i couldn’t agree more.

leo: i was trying to think of a hemingway quote, but thankfully i just remembered that i don’t give a shit about hemingway

virgo: Flintstone vitamins are for losers. William shakespeare.

libra: did you know that that nicki minaj took the lyrics “i beez in the trap” straight from jane austen’s iconic 1813 novel pride and Prejudice?

scorpio: maya angelou actually invented the acronym NSFW, did u know that? 'Not Safe From Whites’. they’re coming

sagittarius: the most inspirational thing walt whitman ever said was ‘dance like nobody’s watching’ that man was a poet

capricorn: ‘be there or be…gay! lol jk don’t be gay’ ~ the bible, chapter 5 verse 17

aquarius: honey, as Faulkner said once, ‘eat shit mark twain’. words to live by

pisces: nietzsche once said that dante was a ‘hyena that wrote poetry on tombs’ and i’m not making that shit up because nothing is funnier than that

It’s early in the morning and nobody will probably read this but I just had the greatest ‘humans are space orcs’ idea

Imagine if humans are the only species that experiences impatience.

Think about it. Most prey animals are extremely patient. Ever meet a deer or a rabbit in the woods and hold still to try and out-wait the thing? I can guarantee your brain starts sending bored bored bored messages very quickly, and your instincts start telling you to give up and find something else to do. Humans can do the patience thing- as evidenced by our endurance hunting methods- but our instincts tell us not to. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this feels like a predator development. I have the idea that if aliens are mostly prey-based, and we’re predator-based, then the aliens will be very patient and we just aren’t.

As an evolutionary development, being impatient can be brilliant. It means that we didn’t sit around and wait for the ice caps to warm up, we knew we didn’t have the technology to survive that level of cold, but we did it anyways. We were trying to send people into the sky and then into space before we had fully figured it all out, simply because we didn’t want to wait and think it out, we wanted SPACE and we wanted it NOW. And personally, I tend to be extremely productive and inventive when I’m feeling impatient. Mechanic is booked for a few days? I’ll figure out how to change my oil and tires and tint my car’s windows myself. Strawberry season is still 4 months away? I’ll get a heat lamp setup and grow them myself. Friends can’t visit and help move furniture for a week? I’ll build a trolley out of some toy cars, tape, a chessboard, and do all the lifting myself.

This impatience is what made us design faster cars, faster computers, faster internet, faster communication, methods of growing food faster, of processing food faster, we’re always looking for the quickest and most efficient thing simply because we are not patient. 

Impatience leads to a type of creativity and persistence that patience just doesn’t have.

Imagine aliens starting to realize this.

“You got to your moon before you had developed LED screens??? You didn’t even have computers that could do basic math?!”
“Well, what else were we gonna do, sit around and wait?”

“Your planes don’t have gravitational control? Don’t you experience discomfort from the acceleration and directional changes?”
“Sure. But we needed to get on the other side of the planet in a decent amount of time.”
“So… what you’re articulating is that you’d rather have physical distress than have to have a long journey?”
“Yeah, pretty much.”

“Human____, our mechanical teams will be on site in several of your earth hours, so we won’t be going anywhere until then.”
“Screw that. Where’s the manual for this thing? I bet I can fix it.”
“But you don’t have any mechanical training.”
“I also don’t feel like sitting around on this rock for ages.”

“You’re back already? I thought your medical representative told you to not be walking on that limb for another of your weeks.”
“Ugh. I just can’t anymore. I’ve got to get up and move and do something, anything.”
“But doesn’t that hurt to walk on?”
“Absolutely.”
“…You would choose pain over waiting?”
“What can I say, I’m not a patient person.”

Like aliens just being baffled that humans would rather work hard or struggle with a problem or even experience pain and discomfort. They, as prey species, are used to just waiting it out. They don’t have the same impatience driving them to get up and go and to fight through things just because they can’t wait any longer.

Bonus: 
Human: Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Alien: Why don’t you have time? Is something scheduled soon?
Human: No, I just don’t feel like wasting time.
Alien: But… it’s not wasted. It’s time well spent. And you do technically have the time to spare for that. If there’s nothing scheduled, then you do ‘got time for that’.
Human: No. No, I don’t. It’s just… no.

i know it’s kind of a meme in the fandom that viktor thought making A SCENE and greeting yuuri naked in japan but i think that was completely unintentional? which makes it even funnier imo?

allow me to explain

i don’t know exactly how long after yuuri’s video went viral that this scene happens, but it’s safe to say that at least a couple of days passed? perhaps a week or a bit more, even though the anime makes it look like it’s on the next day?

so he’s been avoiding the media for days, keeping his phone off so absolutely nobody’s going to be able to reach him until people forget about this madness 

which means he’s also entirely clueless about the rumors of viktor being his coach

and it makes it so much funnier because we know yuuri’s dad doesn’t know jack shit about figure skating, and viktor doesn’t know how to speak japanese AND IT WAS PROBABLY TOSHIYA WHO FIRST TALKED TO VIKTOR WHEN HE ARRIVED AT YU-TOPIA?

TOSHIYA IF YOU’D ONLY GET INTO YOUR SON’S ROOM, LOOKED AROUND AND DID THE MATH YOU WOULD KNOW

so what has happened was probably something like “i have no idea what you’re saying mr. foreign-dude but you’re probably here for our famous onsen so yes make yourself comfortable” which viktor, tired as fuck from his travel (a long ass flight from st. petersburg to tokyo, probably? plus the train from tokyo to hasetsu?) GLADLY ACCEPTS

hell yeah i’m going to enjoy the fuck out of his hot spring

since yuuri is nowhere to be seen why not take some time to relax after a long travel, am i right

it’s not like viktor would understand if yuuri’s parents were to say “oh yes yuuri is holed up in his bedroom but he’ll come out eventually” so as viktor is pretty sure he found the right place and that yuuri is there he’ll just wait and have a nice soak meanwhile

AND THEN YUURI JUST BARGES INTO THE ROOM WHERE VIKTOR IS BATHING

well, this was not how i had planned this to go but here you are?

AND OF COURSE, STANDING UP WAS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY BUT VIKTOR BASICALLY INVENTED BEING EXTRA AND… LET ME SHOW YOU MY HOT BOD BECAUSE I GOT TO SEE YOUR ALMOST-EVERYTHING AT THE BANQUET SO I THINK IT’S FAIR YOU GET TO SEE ME NOW AM I RIGHT??? 

in viktor’s mind, yuuri is this extroverted, outgoing party animal he got to know at the banquet and was absolutely mesmerized by, so he probably thinks yuuri’s going to be alright with this extra introduction? also knowing yuuri lives and probably worked at the onsen for a while viktor maybe just assumes he’s probably unfazed by nudity?

oh viktor, little did you know

it just gets funnier the more you look into it

7 Reasons Why

So…. I am currently watching the new tv show “13 Reasons Why” and my mind decided to make a tragically-beautiful connection tooooo can you guess what?? YUP LANCE!! So here are my thoughts once again… hope you enjoy and feel free to comment any other ideas!!
*NOTE* I’m lowkey crying as I’m writing this. My heart isn’t okay. I’m not okay, okay?? *MORE NOTES* So this came out kinda different than the show/book but i hope yall kinda get the idea

  • Lance was dead. Had committed suicide to be exact. And he left his story behind.
  • The tapes appeared from nowhere. No one knew where they came from or where they disappeared to. No one knew that the tapes contained so much in such a small amount of time. No one knew that these tapes would become an ugly part of them.
  • “Hello space pals and gals. Lance McClain (KINDA LOVE THIS LAST NAME) here. Live and in stereo.”
  • Lance starts off by explaining his “7 Reasons Why” (hahaha get it? Cuz he’s the seventh wheel?? *cries*) he committed suicide and his two rules.
    • “Rule number one. You must listen to the tapes. I’m not gonna lie. This is going to be hard to do but you MUST LISTEN.”
    • “Rule number two. When you are done, you must leave them where you found them. And if you, oh lets say, decide to throw them away, tsk tsk tsk…. bad things will happen.”
  • “First and foremost, our mighty and heroic leader, Shiro.”
    • “I wasn’t good enought to be praised by you.” Lance explains that Shiro was a good leader, a great leader one might say. Unreplacable, “unlike me.” So why was it that he never told Lance “great job” or “thanks for the help.” Why did he alway care so much for Keith? Told him “great job out there” and patted him on the back after every battle. Why did he always take his side even when he was in the wrong? Why did he treat Pidge like a little sister? Always taking care of them and making sure they were getting enough sleep. Always being so nice and caring to both. “You were always my hero but why did you not act like it?” He never payed attention when Lance didnt get enough sleep or didnt eat or was sick. Always making him work and train. Always pointing out his flaws without helping him improve them. “Why, Shiro, did you not care for me?”
  • “Can you guess our number two?? Well, I’ll give you a hint. It’s not me this time. *laughs* First time being number two, our excellent number one paladin, Keith!”
    • “Keith my man, I loved you.” (Klangst? WHY TF NOT?!?) Lance always loved Keith, always looked up to him too. He loved to joke around with him, loved to rile him up, loved to bicker with him because thats how he got to talk to him. He knew that they were playing around so why did it hurt so much? “Why Keith, did you always tell me I wasn’t good enough?” Always telling him to leave you alone, always “you’re annoying me” and never “please stay.” Keith always reminded Lance that he was never good enough, never up to his level, never realizing how lance felt. But how could Lance blame him? However, sometimes Keith, you, took it to far to the point where my heart was too broken to put back together. “I’ve always loved you but you made it so easy to hate you, too.”
  • “My favorite green paladin, my little space sister (female pronouns for this), my gaming buddy, Pidge.”
    • “Pidge, did you even ever realize that I saw you as my sister?” Lance saw his little sister in Pidge. He always, like Shiro, did his best to make sure they stayed healthy. He was always fussing over her eating and sleeping habits. So why did she never appreciate him? “Pidge, you never even said thanks you.” Lance just wanted to be a brother to her. So why did she make him a disposable replacement for her missing brother? Always using him when necessary and then throwing him away when it got too much for her? “Leave me alone Lance. Im working.” Pidge sometimes said really hurtful comments to Lance and she never let him help her because why would she let someone “annoying” help? In, reality Pidge was his sister but according to Pidge, “You are not my brother, Lance. Matt is.”
  • “Hunk, my precious beautiful friend. You did nothing wrong but you also did nothing at all.”
    • “Where to start?” Hunk had always been Lance’s best friend but after Voltron things changed. “I noticed that you and Pidge would hang out together, without me.” Lance just wants to be part of their group again. He tried so hard so join, to contribute, to help. But all he got was “you’re distracting us.” Although they didn’t hang out as much, Hunk was the first one to realize that something was wrong with Lance. “You left me alone.” Hunk saw him getting worse and changing throughout the days. He saw but didn’t do anything. “Hunk, why did you not do anything, if you noticed?” Lance wondered why Hunk left him by himself, why he didn’t try to reach out to him, why he didn’t invite him over, why didn’t he? “You could have helped but you didn’t.”
  • “Our beautiful space princess who will save the universe without moi, Allura.”
    • “Sometimes, your pushing for perfection was too much, not just for me but for everyone.” Lance always felt like the odd one out. Everyone was good at something but he never had a “thing” and Allura’s nagging didn’t help. “Keep up Lance!” Keep up with Keith in the training stimulator. Keep up with Pidge’s new machinery. Keep up with Shiro’s battle plans. Keep up with Hunk’s nee inventions. Keep up. “Again.” No matter how hard Lance tried, Allura was never satisfied. Never complementing him, never saying “good job,” never letting him rest, never telling he was good enough. “Why, Allura, did you never see how hard I was trying?”
  • “Lets talk about our seventh wheel, our number one *snickers* sharpshooter, Me! Lance!”
    • “In my opinion, I was the number one at fault for this occurrence.” Lance hated himself. He hated himself for feeling jealous, angry, sad, homesick, depressed. “I just wanted to be like the rest of you all.” Lance wanted to be as good as Keith and as strong as Shiro. He wanted to be as nice and comforting as Hunk. Wanted to be as smart as Pidge and as powerful as Allura. “I wish I wasn’t so selfish.” Lance thought he was selfish. He wished to get “thanks you’s” from the rest. Wished he get praised from Shiro and Allura. Wished Keith would feel the same way. Wished he was home with his famiy. He wished and wished and he hated it. “I wished I was home.”
  • “My favorite alien, Coran, the one who took care of me and who noticed me struggling. Yes, he tried to help but I guess it wasn’t enough since I’m dead now.”
    • “You let me walk away.” Coran tried helping Lance in his own way. But how could an alien understand some Earthly emotions? “We talked but sometimes it was just you talking.” Coran tried to get Lance to open up to him but failed. He always cut off Lance with his own stories so he never let Lance say what was bothering him. “Coran, you were like an uncle to me.” Coran reminded Lance of his uncle and it kinda hurt him. He was constantly reminded of his family whenever he was with Coran. This made his emotions even worse when he talked to Coran because sometimes Coran didn’t understand him. The day Lance died, Coran had told him to just “move on.” Lance just got up and left but he secretly hoped that Coran would come after him. He didn’t. “You wanted me to move on from this and I did.”
  • “I’m sorry.”

  •  did i already mention a kiss initiated by magnus 
  • literally imagine him just pulling alec by the lapels or the back of his neck for a kiss while alec would get absolutely breathless

  • especially cuddly ones where they’re just laying in random places at magnus’ apartment, holding each other tight, maybe burying their face in the others neck and smelling them a bit 
  •  every deep™ conversation has to be on the balcony from now on

What I love more than anything about Brooklyn Nine-Nine is how nice all the characters are. And we’re always told that nice = boring, but they’re not boring at all, even though they’d do absolutely anything for each other. I mean Gina’s the meanest character on there and she’d still give her friends her own liver if they needed it, she’d just criticise them really inventively while she did it.

Maybe other shows that think they need to make their characters dark and edgy to attract an audience should consider just becoming better writers?

Did I ever tell y’all that I got bored one day and thought AU where Jack is a literal prince as a joke and then completely failed to let go of the concept

Turns out it’s not easy to invent a royal family. Of Canada. Living in Quebec. With the last name “Zimmermann”. I basically had to reinvent Canada’s entire history and constitution just for a stupid joke and now I’ve accidentally got this extremely detailed alternate universe with centuries of history and genealogies of old Canadian families, and absolutely nothing to do with it

Some features:

  • Jack is the last in the Zimmermann line. Since no one actually knows who comes next, no one is very sure what will happen if anything goes wrong
    • There’s a centuries-long dispute between the Armistead and Chevalier families
    • There was an aborted constitutional crisis when Jack overdosed where everyone in politics panicked for a few days
    • Early in a relationship, Jack has to have an awkward “I know this is too early but I need to know if you’ll want kids because… Canada” conversation
  • He’s still known as the Hockey Prince because he insists on playing professional hockey even though he’s a prince, Jack, what are you doing?
  • Inviting his friends to the palace this is hilarious to me
    • Kent “I’ve fucked a prince but I can’t tell anyone” Parson
    • Bitty cannot believe anything about his life
    • “Shits you have to wear pants in the palace”
    • T a t e r
  • Everyone is just a little bit hesitant to check him too hard. Partly because he’s a prince and partly because his long-suffering security guards are watching and also are possibly armed
  • As a result of a minor tiff with the English royal family that included some world-class mocking on the part of then-Queen Joséphine, the Zimmermanns own all Canadian geese in Canada
    • “They can beat your swans in any fight” said Joséphine, probably
    • They also own all the Canadian geese in the US, as part of a minor clause in some treaty or another, which was inserted after a few friendly drinks. No one has done anything about it since so it’s technically still law
    • There’s a long tradition of the Zimmermanns issuing a formal apology to anyone attacked by a Canadian goose
  • There’s been a rumour for as long as anyone can remember that the Zimmermanns are secretly vampires or witches or werewolves, etcetera, depending on the variant you hear. They have never commented on this rumour
About Jin and Jimin

I will not, under any circumstance justify what Jin said to Jimin in today’s Episode, not a chance, not at all. He was wrong, what he said was uncalled for and in a way hurtful. But I will not stand for this Jin hate bandwagon. Why are you all (specially maknae line stans) like this?

Your fellow fans are literally sending death threats to Jin publicly (proofs below) and saying foolishness such as he should leave the group, that he is cancelled or that his jealousy and/or recent popularity (?) got to his head. (Some of you even tweeted that to their public account). 

(There are more comments like these)

BTS unfortunately has always made jokes about weight, eating habits and calling names that can actually be seen (and are) fatphobic… and it should stop, really. Bangtan should not use being “fat” as an insult, and I totally understand if you feel triggered/upset about what Jin said, it’s totally okay to be mad and disappointed… but what it’s not okay is all the hate Jin is getting. 

Remember when Yoongi called Jimin a pig and all the backlash he got? It’s the same now with Jin though a different situation but still bad.

I know that Jimin’s weight is a delicate matter within the fandom and it’s used to insult him, but please stop inventing diseases and/or eating disorders we know nothing about… and for those people saying Jin does not care when someone calls him “pig” or that he didn’t went through any diet/mental stress over it…

And he was also called pig countless of time over this… even by his managers any time they saw him eat. His answer?

When Jin gained a little weight how did everyone else treat him? 

Yet he had to endure that, pretty much just like Jimin had to countless of times. I’m not comparing nor justifying. I repeat, what Jin and BTS in general does is wrong, it’s uncalled for, ugly. But you are attacking Jin, calling him names when he has to go through this since probably before debut? This has to stop, Jin got called fat so many times and no one bats an eye, it’s deemed as “a joke among friends”, but now that Jin did make a mistake and apologized right after and checked how Jimin was (in a game in where they had to diss each other, but still bad), he’s being criticized (and it’s okay) but to the point in where he’s receiving hate and threats.

Not cool guys, you can be disappointed, mad, upset… but don’t send them death threats, it’s worse, it’s ugly. And by the end of the day Jin and Jimin are best friends, they love each other, they have lived together for so many years… you think you know better than them? You don’t. If you don’t like Jin then just say it, but don’t use this as an excuse to hate on him, it’s nasty.

legacy-game  asked:

how did you do the rig? can we get a breakdown, its a really inventive design

Hey yeah! I’ll explain it real fast but’s it’s a bit complicated. If you don’t know maya you won’t understand anything, sorry. I won’t explain the basics (how to skin, how to place follicules or how to link things in the Connection Editor, you’ll easily find tutorial for those on internet) i’m just gonna (try to) explain how i made the eye slip on the shape. Also i still use maya <3

So I just really want to share my opinion about something that has been on my mind lately. So, I really like the show Avatar: The last airbender, and my favorite character is Toph Bei Fong. I just love how strong, independent she is and she knows it. She knows she is probably the greatest earthbender in the world, ever. That is something I really appreciate, just as much as I love how she is blind, but that just makes her stronger. She is a great character.

The thing that is bothering me, however, has to do with Toph. Actually, more the fact that she, in the show does not get enough credit by her friends. Like, she freaking INVENTED METALBENDING and they acted like it was normal. At least, what they showed. They also did not show the Gaangs reaction to finding out TOPH WAS FREAKING KIDNAPPED!!! I think that is something the makers should have focused on much more. I want to see more of Toph Bei Fong. I want to know and see everything about her. I want more credit to how great she is.

I also think that no one really understands how strong she is. Like, the picture at the top. I just can’t fathom how strong she is. She deserves so much more credit from the producers and the fans. I just… Writing this made me angry. I love her so much, I would, if I could just jump in their world and freaking marry her.

BTS as more things my friends have said
  • Seokjin: I basically invented this friendship group
  • Hoseok: I don't know why but I'm in a really good mood right now and everything just looks adorable suddenly
  • Yoongi: If you guys seriously expect me to get up before noon then you clearly don't know me as well as I thought you did
  • Namjoon: I'll speak to them seeing as no one else here is capable of holding a conversation with a stranger
  • Taehyung: don't just assume that I'm in a good mood just because I'm grinning at you
  • Jimin: wait - you guys don't think I'm innocent?... How though?
  • Jungkook: I'll go but if we see anyone especially attractive just prepare yourself for my awkward, out-of-character demeanour
The signs as things I've heard AP students say
  • Aries: I don't know how to play football, but I've got anger issues and want to punch some of you.

Does most of the fandom understand just how destructive Littlefinger is?

I think most ASOIAF/GoT fans understand Littlefinger is a bad guy because he screwed Ned over and he told Cat the dagger belonged to Tyrion.

That’s not the end of it, though. His villainy did not begin with lying to Catelyn about where that dagger came from.

Do most of the fandom register, and understand the implications thereof, that he conspired with Lysa Arryn to murder Jon Arryn and draw the Starks’ suspicions to the Lannisters? When you consider Lysa’s confession in ASOS, and you look back at the events of AGOT, do you understand just how thoroughly Ned and Cat got played? And how much of that danger came not from the Lannisters, but from Cat’s sister and foster brother?

Looking back at the events of AGOT, do you understand how the Lannisters were being attacked and vilified by Littlefinger and Lysa’s lies? Do you notice how every shitty thing the Lannisters did to the Starks was reactive (if sometimes disproportionate), not pre-emptive?

Do you even look back at the events of GoT and understand that the Lannisters did not kill Jon Arryn? Do you understand that when Ned was convinced the queen’s family had killed Lord Arryn, he was dangerously mistaken? With that knowledge in mind, do you ever consider how Ned and Cat’s actions may have appeared to the Lannisters?

Seriously, I’ll say it again: do you even register that the Lannisters did not kill Jon Arryn? The possibility that they “would have” killed him if Lysa hadn’t poisoned him first is irrelevant: they didn’t kill him.

Leaving out the White Walkers and focusing on just the political struggles, there is no more unambiguous villain in the series than Littlefinger. I’ve said it before and I still think so: if the Lannisters (especially Tywin and Cersei) didn’t exist, Littlefinger would’ve had to invent them.
