listen I get why it's so easy to be cynical about disco and everything associated with it especially given how dead the genre is but dont tell me that there's no beauty in that balance between tacky and opulent that makes it both desireable and attainable for the everyman and dont you dare say that there isn't pure joy and sex and youth in this movement and dont you talk shit about disco not being Real Music because like all important genres of the present it was the music of the devil that parents didnt allow their kids to listen to and quite frankly if you dont see the charm in disco with all its rhinestones and dance and boundless sexuality then i'm sorry for you like seriously Donna Summer and the bootcut jeans belong on that pedestal we build for renaissance art and Bach<p/></p>
can you explain to me why everyone in westeros is always referring to lyanna as very beautiful when her counterpart (arya) is referred to as "horseface", is it because lyanna is being described by the people who loved her or maybe it's because arya is still very young? i'm not hating or anything is just that this too descriptions always seems to clash for me
Well, because that’s what we’re told of Lyanna:
“Lyanna was beautiful,” Arya said, startled. Everybody said so. It was not a thing that was ever said of Arya.
“She was,” Eddard Stark agreed, “beautiful, and willful, and dead before her time.”
“You never knew Lyanna as I did, Robert,” Ned told him. “You saw her beauty, but not the iron underneath.”
Where was the beautiful Lady Lyanna that King Robert had named in honor of the maid he’d loved and lost?
The northern girl had a wild beauty, as he recalled, though however bright a torch might burn it could never match the rising sun.
That comes from Ned, Arya, Robert, Davos, and Kevan, plus whoever the “everybody” in Arya’s statement is. The only times we hear something slightly off from that is with Barbrey Ryswell’s “centaur” comment and the world book’s “by all accounts [Lyanna] was a wild and boyish young thing with none of Princess Elia’s delicate beauty.”
Taking biases into account, I would say Kevan and the world book’s descriptions are most accurate, that she was pretty but in a striking, intriguing way like a Visenya Targaryen or Ellaria Sand. She wasn’t an Elia, Ashara, or Catelyn who were unequivocally gorgeous and turned heads, but there was something about her that drew the eye. That said, apart from Ned, the only time any of those people saw Lyanna was at Harrenhal (and Davos never), when she would have been prettied up and told to act in a more reserved, ladylike manner. Only Ned would have known the way she normally was, sparring with Benjen in the godswood with sticks.
As for Arya, she’s a child, only barely 11 by the end of ADWD, and the “horseface” comments came from Sansa, Jeyne, and Theon who liked to pick on her. We know that the Stark “look” consists of a long face, which those three I mentioned who very much do not have the Stark look and who are bratty (pre) teens, would poke fun at. Arya does the same thing to Sansa, only she pokes fun at Sansa’s preoccupation with true knights and love of traditionally feminine interests. It’s a two-way street.
Ok. Here's the thing. Dunno if somebody already did that. Pidge: I'm sorry, the old Katie can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, cause she's dead! Shiro: Pidge: Shiro: Pidge: Shiro: Katie, what did we say about quoting song lyrics? (It was way funnier in my head, I'm so sorry, I'm trash)
No, no, it’s beautiful. Pidge bugging her giant boyfriend is my favorite thing!
IF YOU CAN HEAR THAT SOUND IN THE DISTANCE, IT'S PROBABLY ME STILL SCREAMING OVER DECKERSTAR KISS. ARE YOU DEAD, BECAUSE I'M PRETTY SURE I AM *PTERODACTYL SCREECH*
