No but imagine writing for the slytherin house? Let’s make characters that are born and bred by age-old families with all these rules and traditions, lets play misunderstood men and women that have known nothing but the life they’ve lived. Let’s create brotherhoods and sisterhoods and friendships forged with a bond too strong that wars can not break them. Lets play good souls in the snake’s pit, lets play ambitious, cunning, kind, nasty, /different/ people that make up the great slytherin house.
Because there’s so much more to the house of green and silver than meets the eye.
It seems as though when most men think of feminism, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women. All they can think about is having the existing power structure inverted and therefore refuse to face or support equality.
I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or how aware they are of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them. Either way it really bloody pisses me off
D&D show writers confirm Jon will face enemies within that he will be vulnerable to due to his honorable nature. Not only will the WW threat loom taking Jon’s focus he will have to rely on others to protect him from selfish enemies within his inner circle. Who are those selfish people? D&D even say “defeating men and women” who don’t play by “honorable rules”.
D&D spoke to Deadline and gave this interesting insight into what is to come:
Benioff & Weiss: Jon’s honorable nature has proven a disadvantage in some regards: a man who plays by the rules will have a harder time defeating men and women who don’t. But Jon’s nature also provides one of his great strengths: his ability to win others to his cause. Men who respected his courage and honesty elected him Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. The Free Folk, who had never before aligned themselves with kneelers, chose to fight for Jon Snow because they believed in him. The lords of the north named him King in the North because they realized he was their last, best chance to survive the wars to come.
The question will be whether an honorable man can overcome dishonorable enemies. As E.O. Wilson wrote, “Within a group, selfish individuals always win. But in contests between groups, groups of altruists always beat groups of selfish individuals.” So Jon Snow better hope this is a contest between groups.
Sidenote: Jon has a sister coming home. Most likely bringing with her a Hound, hopefully an of army wolves, and brothers who can finally take up banners again. The Stark name. Another group Jon can win over? Stay tuned!
