Grey Worm: when unsullied are young the masters learn their
fears. One warrior is scared of dogs, one warrior hates high places, one is
frightened of the ocean. They make the
boy sleep with dogs or climb a cliff. They throw him in the water. If he learns to swim. Good. If he drowns.
Good. Either way, strong
unsullied. I had no fears. I was never
the biggest, never the strongest. I was
bravest. Always. But then, I meet Missandei, from the isle of
Naath. Now. I have fear..
GOT Season 7, Episode 2, Stormborn Reaction/Review
Dany is asking for receipts!
Oh shit melisandre what the fuck are you up to?
Aaaah I’m so excited Dany’s people are learning about Jon!!! Omg omg they need to MEET. Aaaaaah!!!!!! YES PLEASEEEE.
Ugh Cersei I hate this but it’s a good speech to convince the lords left.
Dickon? Ohhh Sam your little brother!
Jamie’s speech is probably more complying to the lords.
Jorah!!!! 6 months. Fuck. It would be nice if Sam could cure him.
Dragon heads!!!!!!! YEAH! No don’t break it!!!!!! Ughhhh. CERSEI.
Yes back to Boss Bitch Island! Ooooooh unsullied at Casterly Rock!!!! Yes!!!! I love all this planning! Olenna’s advice is savage. Love her.
Greyworm, “I’m in lesbians with you” I see he took a page out of Jon Snow’s sex book.
Sam’s on the let’s fix Jorah for Commander Mormont!! Omg my heart!! Omg this is gonna hurt fuck fuck fuck. NOPE NOPE DO NOT WANT. MY HEART.
Ugh fuck these gross transitions.
Hot Pie!!!! I’m so glad he’s still making bread!!
Yayayayaya Arya knows about Jon!!!!! Omg omg omg!!! Arya go home!!! Go home!!!!
Hey Jon. I love ya. Very much. But uhm… Send Sansa!! SEND SANSA. Wait. You’re giving the North to Sansa. Okay. That’s fine too. Actually yes. This is good.
Litterfinger get the fuck out. Yes Jon choke his creepy ass.
NYMERIA!!!!!!! Well that’s wait. It’s not Nymeria?! Who the fuck was that?
I love all the women being in charge. Hahaha these girls are cheeses as fuck. How corny are those lines. lololol
Oh Euron coming for the ships. That makes sense. I still don’t have any investment in these characters so I don’t care who dies here. It just means Dany is gonna have to fight harder and send the dragons sooner. Also yeah the woman who killed an innocent kid isn’t gonna live for sure.
Whelp. Nothing less expected from Theon to be honest. Bye Yara.
After Show Thoughts:
WAIT. IS ARYA GONNA MISS SEEING JON AGAIN?!! AGGGGGGH
So was that a new Direwolf crew orrrrr what? So it was Nymeria, that scene just wasn’t clear.
how sad to be a gay girl in this the year of our lord 2017. i’ve never been to pride before. i tell my mother i’m thinking of going and she says; please be smart and stay home. most of me thinks she’s right about this, even though i live in a city where gay pride flags fly on every other building.
they’ve done a good job scaring us into the corners we came out of. i tremble at the idea of crowds full of other people, my body in rainbow paint. i will be meeting friends from high school and none of them know i’m gay. it terrifies me. i have no idea what they’d say. what if they ignore it. what if they make a big deal about it. what if they ask me how long i’ve been this way.
straight people tell me all the time that maybe it used to be dangerous to be in love with a girl, but i should stop complaining because marriage is legal. i think of how i still hear “gay” used as a slur, how every word i have for myself has been used as a curse word against me, how i have no identity that comes unsullied. i think of how every time i hold her hand in public i find my ears become satellite dishes, waiting to pick up on any incoming danger, always mid-flinch. i think about how their opinion of me changes when i tell them. i think about the cans thrown and the threats made and the fights that bloodied my teeth. i think about the arguments with my parents and the silence in churches and the shuffling of embarrassed feet.
i’m telling myself i’ll go to pride and i’ll smile and i’ll have a good time. i’m telling myself i’ll be strong for those who can’t be. i’m telling myself thank god it’s 2017 and i live in the united states in a commonwealth that protects me. but the fact i have to rally just to walk in the streets says something. i feel sick when i think about where i’m going but proud about what i’m doing.
the closet was the worst place, i whisper to myself. darkness and spiders. but the closet is the safer place. and sometimes that matters.
“can we, like, chill with the gay pride?” i hear a girl on the bus say to her friend, “like… every june this happens and i’m tired of it.”
i’m gay every day of the week, even when i’m not proud of it.
i sit lower in my seat. i text the people i’m going to pride with. “i might come,” i write, “still working on it.”
this is what happens when you uphold people, especially milquetoast white straight cis adult men, as being Perfectly Unsullied In Their Progressiveness Always, because it leaves absolutely no room for people to criticize them, and when people DO criticize them they are thrown to the wolves because THE BROTHERS ARE DOING THEIR VERY BEST AND YOURE BEING SO MEAN TO THEM!!!! like dude, they’re grown-ass men, and if they can’t take rightful constructive feedback then they shouldn’t be in the entertainment industry. it’s not your job to shelter hyper-privileged dudes from the apparent wrath of teenagers on the internet.
