Like you, I think Dany is going to go full cray-cray throne-thirsty villain. Even Emilia said something along the lines of Dany shedding her humanity and then there's GRRM's comments about reading how a villain actually becomes a villain - his story isn't so much about the hideous evil creatures like Tolkien's orcs (so GRRM's WW) but more about human nature & responses to the world around them. So - how would you like to SEE Dany's change play out & become clear to the casual viewer?

i’m not super picky, honestly, but i’d be pretty thrilled if s7 ended with like danielle finding out that jon has a claim to the throne. so she does that thing where she looks at him with that squinty expression/jaw tic that she does and before jon can be all “oh shit” she goes full-on “dracarys” so the last thing we see is drogon’s signature fireball then CUT TO BLACK and the space jam theme song plays over the credits

hey, a girl can dream. but in all seriousness i do think the BEST way for the showrunners to indicate danielle’s turning point is for her to threaten the starks 

(in which case i would also fully and enthusiastically accept her making a vague remark re: sansa, to which jon could say “ARE YOU THREATENING MY WIFE” but i understand that’s something of a pipe dream–perhaps–so that’s just going into my fuckplot fic so it has at least some presence in reality) 

Wonder Woman: Biggest opening for a female director, ever. Highest rated DC film since the Dark Knight Trilogy. Amazing end credit song by Florence Welch (sung by Sia, the queen of modern hits). 93 FUCKING percent on rotten tomatoes. Discusses racism, sexism, and mental illness. A main cast that has people of color who discuss being marginalized. First ever Wonder Woman live action film.

“His fingers touched the strings, and all my thoughts were displaced. The sound was pure and sweet as water, bright as lemons. It was like no music I had ever heard before. It had warmth as a fire does, a texture and weight like polished ivory. It buoyed and soothed at once.”

- Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles, page 34

Everything Black

DID YOU KNOW?

that “N.O” stands for both the word “no” and is the acronym for “No Offense.”

and the mv looks like its from some kind of dystopian world where anything and everything they do gets controlled like

Who is the one who made us into studying machines?
They classify us to either
Being number one or dropping out
They trap us in borders, the adults
There’s no choice but to consent
Even if we think simply,
It’s the survival of the fittest
Who do you think is the one who makes us step
On even our close friends to climb up? What?

suga’s lines make me think about south korea’s culture of educational masochism, and how its normal there for even young children to work from early morning until late at night, and often at weekends too, to get into the best university they can and eventually secure a well-paying job. the pressure is intense, and the routine relentless - for years on end. in seoul, legions of students who fail to get into top universities spend the entire year after high school attending hagwons, which are after-hours tutoring academies, to improve their scores on university admissions exams. and these hagwons are no joke, they can last until early mornings for students as early as elementary school kids :0

which brings me to my next point. i think its very clever that rapmon starts the song with 

A good house,
A good car,
Will these things bring happiness?
In Seoul
To the SKY,
Will parents really be happy?

ppl may not know while SKY can mean the sky up above us, its also said to be the acronym for the three most prestigious universities there– seoul university, korea university and yonsei university. they’re very hard to get admitted, and the competition is insane, just

and its no wonder why even with south korea being the world’s 12th largest economy at least according to forbes, a place where you can surf the internet on the underground, dance the night away in a salsa club, and buy a decent americano on your way to work. and yet, as i quote, “people here seem less happy than during the years of hardship after the korean war.” their high suicide rate seems to reflects this. 

and like how rapmon further laments, how can they?

The grown-ups confess
That we have it so easy
They say that we are happier than our portion
Then how do you explain my unhappiness?
There’s no conversation topics beside studying
Outside, there are so many kids like me,
Living the life of a puppet
Who will take responsibility?

cos thats how they’ve rolled for centuries..

which is why i applaud bangtan and its whole production for highlighting this issue and in a way letting ppl know of its atrocity, and that gives a lot of consolation for ppl like me, for students like us, and i like how their message isnt really about being rebellious and going against the authority, they’re not even questioning the importance of education, cos it is. 

just take the title for what it is, no offense– but

It must be illegal to look that good!

You know I’ve been taking some time

And I’ve been keeping to myself

I had my eyes up on the prize

Ain’t watching anybody else

But your love it hit me hard

Yeah, you’re bad for my health

I love the cards that I’ve been dealt

Do you feel the same as well?


You know, I used to be in 1D (now I’m out, free)

People want me for one thing (that’s not me)

I’m not changing the way, that I (used to be)

I just wanna have fun (and get rowdy)

Want coke and bacardi (sippin’ lightly)

When I walk inside the party (girls on me)

F1 type Ferrari (6 gear speed)

I love it when your body (grinds on me), baby  


You know I love it when the music’s start
But c'mon, strip that down for me, baby

There’s a lot of people in the crowd
But only you can dance with me

So put your hands on my body
And swing around for me, baby

You know I love it when the music start
But c'mon, strip that down for me (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)


Oh, strip that down
Love when you hit the ground (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, strip that down
Love when you hit the ground


You know, that since the day I met you

Yeah, you swept me off my feet

You know, that I don’t need no money

When your love is beside me

Yeah, you opened up my heart

And then you threw away the key

Now it’s just you and me

And you don’t care ‘bout where I’ve been
