I think, my human friends, that sometimes you get angry with yourself for being hurt. Because you feel like you aren’t allowed to be hurting, because what made you hurt might be something not worth being upset over, or because you feel like other people have it worse.
But that’s not true. If you are hurting, then it means that it was important. That it mattered to you. And that is a legitimate reason to feel hurt. You are allowed to feel what you are feeling.
My phrasing here has been borrowed from the lovely and talented John Green, from this video. He is a very nice man who writes nice books, and has a knack for saying things well. I hope he doesn’t mind me using his words for a little while!

i’m here for this manatee and not john green

Bless you Calming Manatee.

You are a hero, Calming Manatee.

Shale’s girlish things.

Inspired by this gifset and justgirlythings tumblr.

LOL DAT STEN. SHE ACTUALLY SAID THAT?! HDBXJDHDJD

Something like “I could watch it [fight] all day. The way the light plays on its muscles, the skill, the form…I mean, yes, well done. With the fighting.”

Oh, Shale <3

Holy fuck this is perfect.

Hi my name is Lydia and my Saturday nights include:
Reading
Internet
Eating popcorn leftover from the movie my family went to, but I didn’t
Pretending to be Hank Pym and sending Hank Green messages in hopes that one day he notices
Not doing homework that I really should be doing
Making tumblr posts about above activities in the style of a dating website profile
A++++++ catch

Martin on his female characters

  • Facebook question for GRRM: What was your intent in providing such female characters of strength in a genre that typically reduces them to witches, wives, and whores?
  • George R. R. Martin: To be fair, I have my share of witches, wives, and whores. But I try to make them fully fleshed out human witches, wives, and whores. It all goes back to what I said earlier about common humanity. It seems strange that I have to say this, as a sort of weirdly radical statement, but women are people and they are driven by the same desires that drive men, I think. A desire for respect and power, a desire to protect your children. Greed for money, for acclaim, everyone wants to be loved. It is all common humanity. I just try to write my female characters as I write my males characters. I do take into account it is a very patriarchal society. They are limited to certain roles, some of them fit comfortably within the roles their Westerosi society assigned them. And some of them cannot fit comfortably into those roles, and therefore encounter a certain amount of rejection, or tension, or ridicule as they try to pursue their own dreams or as they frustrate their own dreams. All this is great, all this is conflict, it is character tension, it is what story is all about, the human heart in conflict with itself once again. One of the things that pleases me to no end is that I have so many female readers. They do write me, all the time, that they do like my female characters, and I am very pleased with it.
