OK, Game of Thrones does have a lot of terrible writing, but the degree of vitriol directed toward Dany and the show for “I was born to rule the seven kingdoms and I will” seems a bit over the top. There is more than one way to interpret that line, and I do not believe it was ever intended to be interpreted as “I was born to inherit the seven kingdoms”. That’s obviously wrong, Viserys came before her, and Dany knew it.
My interpretation of that line from the moment I heard it was along the lines of I was made for this, as in I was born for this moment, “I was born to rule.” I know Benioff and Weiss don’t do themes (themes are for 8th grade book reports according to them, sigh), but there has been a emphasis on show!Dany being the one fit to rule according to people on the show, with Jorah and his “you would not only be feared, but loved” and Varys with his “a ruler stronger than Tommen, gentler than Stannis, loved by millions etc. etc..”
This line isn’t all that bad, it fits with what came before it on the show, it fits with show!Dany, and I can think of far worse lines to get worked up over than this.
Told Dean last night that after we talked several months ago, I’ve decided that come December I would like to start foster paperwork and possibly do foster -> adopt.
He said he doesn’t know and I told him that’s fine if he doesn’t feel ready for that step. But that he needs to start giving it some serious thought. Either way, I would just like to know he spent some time thinking about it, regardless what he decides, I’ll be able to accept his feelings after genuine reflection. Hopefully we can move forward but I don’t want to start anything we both don’t feel 100% ready for.
Fostering is a little scary. The hardest thing would be having to say goodbye and that’s one of the biggest things he, and I, need to make sure we are ready for.
1. So if I just talked and used no punctuation whatsoever but I still asked a question it would seem rhetorical wouldn’t it
2. better yet, if i didn’t capitalize anything (but still used punctuation, of course) i’d seem more chill. now it seems like i’m not pretentious, i might not even care so much, but here’s my honest opinion. i probably call people pet names like ‘my guy’.
3. [Then there’s the] Say it louder for the people in the back!! [Translation: I don’t have much to say, but I agree.]
4. And then. And then. You have those pretentious folks who like to use capitalization, punctuation and full sentences! They probably even use italics too! In the company of try-hards such as these, one might feel as if they were sitting around the table with a bunch of French Revolution philosophes. Or maybe that was just what they wanted you to think.
