A Certain Darkness
In Westminster you’ll find the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Horse Guards Parade and fantastic night time views from Westminster Bridge. It’s a sightseer’s paradise, and it’s starred in films like Skyfall and TV programmes like Doctor Who and the title sequence of Sherlock.
"Cersei’s fears make her act wildly, irrationally, attacking everyone she suspects of working against her, making enemies of potential allies and alienating the allies she has. In the end, Dany (who Cersei will never see coming) will just walk in and have to ‘take’ very little at all." [x]
"(And the irony in the valonqar prophecy is that Cersei is sure it’s Tyrion but it’s actually Jaime. No, it’s not Sandor/Arya/Tommen/Rickon. Irony, not randomness.)
"(And please don’t go “but Dany and Jaime are so obvious!” Yeah well so’s R+L=J.)" [x]
Game of Thrones meme: seven quotes [1/7]
“Her father used to say that a lord needed to eat with his men, if he hoped to keep them. “Know the men who follow you,” she heard him tell Robb once, “and let them know you. Don’t ask your men to die for a stranger.””
"Oh." Bran thought about the tale awhile. "That was a good story. But it should have been the three bad knights who hurt him, not their squires. Then the little crannogman could have killed them all. The part about the ransoms was stupid. And the Mystery knight should win the tourney, defeating every challenger, and name the wolf maid the queen of love and beauty."
"She was," Said Meera, "but that’s a sadder story.”
This is an ask I saw sansalayned (thanks for the rec by the way <3)was given, and I just wanted to say something on the subject.
It’s impossible to really know the context that anon is describing as they offer no counter examples (which “certain characters” for example or compared to whom does anon think Arya falls short in “good”ness,) but there’s something really important to get at here.
Forgetting the actual haters, Arya is actually judged more harshly on a scale of goodness than many other characters for her killings. Part of that seems to be her gender, more of that seems to be her age (it’s more acceptable seeing an older character engaging in violence than a younger one,) but there is a serious pattern of judging Arya’s choices more harshly.
