"Nobody wants a hero when there isn’t something to save."
I forget where I read that, and I’m probably paraphrasing, but that just stuck with me. Post War Useless and Unwanted Harry makes sense, not that its his fault, really. But heroes in peaceful times are trouble.

Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
"The episode makes it seem like the mother is dead. But, if this episode is named "Vesuvius", and we already know that "Vesuvius" is not the right answer, it just seemed like it was for a moment, then perhaps this is a red herring episode where incorrect conclusions were supposed to be made."
The Vesuvius Theory (x)
Trans exclusionary radical “feminists” are so perplexing because it’s like they were sitting around and said to themselves “you know what my feminist movement needs? Misogyny!”
no seriously let’s lay this all out
- Sansa starts the series at eleven years old and is currently thirteen
- She is currently the successor to Winterfell, the Lady of Casterly Rock, in line for Riverrun and near to becoming the ruler of the Eyrie
- She managed to trick her abusive fiancé, who was the king into not killing someone
- She survived over a year in kings landing whilst three of her family members died and three others had to run away believed dead
- She stayed strong and polite around those who killed her family, whilst slipping in some subtle insults
- She has managed to get some of the best fighters in Westeros on her side including Jaime Lannister, Brienne of Tarth and Sandor Clegane
- All whilst remaining good and kind and compassionate
But no do keep telling us how naive and bad at the game she is
GAME OF THRONES NUMBER MEME; Seven Quotes [01: Wolf Child, Blood Child]
The dwarf woman studied her with dim red eyes. “I see you,” she whispered. “I see you, wolf child. Blood child. I thought it was the lord who smelled of death…” She began to sob, her little body shaking. “You are cruel to come to my hill, cruel. I gorged on grief at Summerhall, I need none of yours. Begone from here, dark heart. Begone!”
The folk in the town and countryside alike still sing of it, of the day the Targaryen queen, mother of dragons, daughter of dragons, sailed in upon the back of her massive beast and burned all who opposed her, of the day the wolf-queen, queen in the north, the last Stark in Westeros, came out to meet her. Accounts of how wolf and dragon both refused to kneel vary, but the kingdoms soon found themself bending the knee to a queen of fire and a queen of ice.
And the folk whisper as well, in voices softer than soft, that the two queen’s alliance was formed on more than mutual esteem, that a passion that burned hotter than dragonfire and colder than winter brought them together, and that in the moment Sansa and Daenerys met, the Queen in the North found that she could burn and the Queen in the South learned that she could shiver.
