“That’s not you” is a direct reference to what Arya herself said to her father when her father painted this picture for her of the life she could have as a lady of a castle and marrying some lord and wearing a nice frilly dress. Arya’s not domesticated, and it makes total sense that her wolf wouldn’t be either. Once the wolf walks away, at first she’s heartbroken to have come this close, and then she realizes the wolf is doing exactly what she would do if she were that wolf.”

Incompetence should not be rewarded with blind loyalty. As long as I have my eyes, I’ll use them.
I wasn’t born into a great house, I came from nothing. I was sold as a slave and carved up as an offering. When I was a child, I lived in alleys, gutters, abandoned houses. You wish to know where my true loyalties lie? Not with any king or queen, but with the people. ★s t o r m b o r n
Okay, so I watched Game of Thrones early this morning, and I had a moment when that line was said and I was like “Please, no, don’t make her find it sweet, she wouldn’t” and then amen, God bless. I couldn’t help but notice how not angry the GW / Missandei scene made me and you want to know why? Because she reacted like we should teach our girls and women to react to stuff like that.
I watch these two scenes and I look at how one of these women smiles, is apparently glad to be defined as his weakness (Me?) like it’s some sort of honor, and the other’s like “wtf? You better process this or else I’m outta here?” It made me so sad because I want Supergirl to be like that. I want her to be educated and smart and stand up and to see she’s being turned into punching mess is just so unfair to her myth. I want her to make all the faces Wonder Woman did in the movie when she realized women weren’t treated equally. I want her to be smart like Diana and Missandei.
PS - Obviously there’s no way of comparing the two male characters in this post whatsoever, like, one of them has been a slave his whole life and the other owed slaves. Even the sentences are in a completely different situation and tone and a completely different direction of romance, and yet it’s Missandei who’s been allowed to speak up. This just says so much about the writing of the shows (not that GOT is perfect from beginning to end but man …)
