#173:  “Barbie: Princess Charm School is such an underrated movie to me. It is an inspiring story about a girl who would do anything to help her mom’s sickness and give her family a better life. It also has one of my favorite quotes from Barbie’s movies: ‘Every girl is a princess, some just have fancier crowns’. I love this movie so much and the song ‘On Top of the World” fits perfectly. I know a lot of people don’t like the new Barbie movies but if you give them a chance, they may surprise you!”

anonymous asked:

Do you have a list of GRRM quotes about Arya? I know he has talked about her importance, and knowing where he was going with her story and what not.

Well, I do not have all of them, but here is what I do have. (Note: I left out some references that I thought were uninteresting, like if he just randomly includes her in discussion or it is something we have already had answered.)

*Edit: forgot this one. On Arya and Braavos:

He said that LOVES to write about Arya’s adventures in Braavos. He said he could write whole novels about. That received a huge applause until he joked that maybe he could put off Winds to do so. [source]

On Arya being his favorite female character/his second favorite character of all his characters written/being one of the closest characters he relates to:

“I do have my favorite characters, of course. Tyrion, Arya, Jon … but I love them all. Even the ones I kill.” -GRRM

A part from Tyron, is there any female character you love more than the others?

Oh, probably Arya… but as with the men, I love them all. -GRRM

First of all the books are amazing (ASOIAF, Wild Cards, the other stuff, its all great), thank you. Two related questions, and one unrelated one. While you probably have strong feelings for all the characters you write, do you have any “favorite characters” from A Song of Ice and Fire who you enjoy writing/simply like more than other characters?

Tyrion.  Arya is fun to write as well. -GRRM

“Years and years later, when Wild Cards came around, I would use Bayonne and 35 East First Street to flesh out a character named Thomas Tudbury, elsewise known as the Great and Powerful Turtle. “Yes,” I would admit sheepishly when asked, “I am Tom Tudbury, only without the kickass teke.”

And that’s true, and that’s false.

Tommy’s me … but no more than all the others. Robb is me in “Song for Lya,” as Dirk is me in Dying of the Light … though Arkin Ruark and Jaan Antony in that one are both me as well. Abner Marsh is me, as his proud sidewheeler Fevre Dream is the excursion boat to Far Rockaway, only the passengers drink blood instead of Kool-Aid. Sandy Blair is J-school me, Peter Norten is chess club me, Kenny Dorchester is me trying to lose weight. Holt in “The Stone City,” he’s the kid lying in the grass, staring up at distant stars. Trager is me on a dark night of the soul, bleeding poison from three wounds named Josie, Laurel, Rita. Jon Snow has me in him, and Sam Tarly. The women too, Lyanna and Shaara, and the girls, Arya and Adara … Daenerys Stormborn, searching for that house with the red door. And Tyrion Lannister? Oh, yes. The Imp is me in spades, the horny little bastard.” -GRRM

On Arya as a favorite of the readers:

At the koffeklatche, George said the two favorite characters [of readers] were Tyrion and Arya. [source]

Tyrion y Daenerys [una reina interpretada por Emilia Clarke] son dos de las invenciones más vívidas de toda la saga. 
Son dos de los personajes más populares, aunque creo que los más populares en todo el mundo son Jon Snow y Arya. -GRRM

(The translation of that one is just that the interviewer said that Tyrion and Dany are two of the most compelling/vivid characters in the series, and GRRM says that they are popular but he believes Jon Snow and Arya are more popular/the two most popular of all the characters.)

On why Arya was in both AFFC and ADWD despite it going against his system:

"It broke down pretty well according to geography. I could have omitted Arya. I hesitated over her because she is on the other continent, but she had only three chapters. I was moving Jon Snow, Tyrion and Dany-three of my four most popular characters-into the other book. If I moved Arya too, it might not be a good idea. She’ll actually appear in both books." -GRRM

On Arya and the end/principle endgames:

"Some major characters — yes, I always had plans, what Tyrion’s arc was gonna be through this, what Arya’s arc was gonna be through this, what Jon Snow’s arc is gonna be. I knew what the principal deaths were gonna be, and when they were coming.” -GRRM

“Essentially I know the big stuff, but a lot of little stuff occurs in the course of the writing. And of course some of the little stuff is very, very important. The devil is in the details. The devil is what makes the journey more than just an outline or a Cliff’s Notes kind of experience. So I may know the ultimate fates of Jon Snow and Daenerys and Arya and some of the other principal characters. But I don’t necessarily know the ultimate fates of Dolorous Edd or Hot Pie, you know. Well, I have a few ideas about those, but still.” -GRRM

Will Arya have any significant impact on events later in the series?No comment. -GRRM

On Arya’s (and Sansa’s) conception:

 Arya was one of the first characters created. Sansa came about as a total opposite b/c too many of the Stark family members were getting along and familes aren’t like that. Thus, Sansa was created; he ended by saying they have deep issues to work out. [source]

On Arya supposedly being an assassin/the inspiration of being a child soldier:

So when you had first introduced Arya, you knew she was going to become an assassin?

Well she’s not an assassin yet. You are assuming she is going to become one. She’s an apprentice.

But she’s already going around killing people and she’s learned a lot of the secrets.

Not only in Ice and Fire — we also did this bit in the Wild Cards series, the whole thing of the child solider is a fascinating construct. We have this picture of children [as] so sweet and innocent. I think some of the recent history in Africa and some of the longer history have shown that under the right circumstances, they can become just as dangerous as men, and in some ways more dangerous. On some level, it’s almost a game to them. -GRRM

On Arya and Nymeria, being “adrift”:

Shaw: You mentioned how closely tied the Stark children are with the direwolves, but how about Sansa now that Lady’s dead? 

Martin: She lost hers, so it kind of leaves her a little adrift. Of course Arya has lost her’s too, she’s separated from Nymeria. [source]

On Arya (and Sansa’s) name(s):

The names Arya and Sansa are meant to represent the polar opposites of their characters, Arya being a hard sounding name, Sansa a softer more pretty name, etc. [source]

On Parris, GRRM’s wife, opinion of Arya:

Parris has proclaimed that Arya cannot die! (No, she wasn’t there :( but he mentioned it when someone said that he’s not allowed to kill Dany) [source]

On his favorite line ever written:

What is your favorite line you’ve ever written?

“I certainly like ‘Stick ‘em with the pointy end.’ And it’s more than one line, but I like the ‘Oath of the Night’s Watch.’ I revised it a number of times, polished it to get it exactly how I wanted it and to this day, it still gives me goosebumps when I hear it.” [source]

On Jon/Arya:

Granny: Are you trying to say something to the reader by drilling into us how much Arya and Jon love each other?George_RR_Martin: “Say something to the reader?” No, I’m just reporting how the characters feel. <g> Of course, everything in the book says something to the reader. -GRRM

On Arya/Sansa and education:

How closely does Westeros resemble the real Middle Ages in terms of social customs and gender roles? For example, would highborn ladies have been expected to bathe guests and know how to make cheese, etc.? Sansa’s education and training seemed rather impractical - did the fault lie with her parents or were all young ladies raised like that?Sansa is more than just a young lady.  She’s the daughter, not just of a noble, but of one of the most powerful nobles in Westeros.  The great houses stand far above the lesser nobles, as the lesser nobles do above the smallfolk.She would not make cheese, no.  But Arya might think it would be fun. -GRRM

And every single time skip answer includes Arya, gendrie has compiled a nice little list here. Overall, GRRM talks about Arya a lot. I left out some of his more random references to her, but there’s others. Probably others I don’t even know about.
