Yeah, anxiety and depression before work is just what I needed.

I’m disappointed too anon:( I try really hard not to be, because Game of Thrones is my favorite thing ever, but yes, there are certainly parts about it that make me far less enthusiastic than i used to be.
I think the main problem is that we had different expectations of it. I could be wrong, but it seems the target audience Game of Thrones choose to focus on is male, didn’t read the books and watches the show mainly for the action/fantasy and the non-censored sex, nudity, violence and bloodshed HBO is known for. I can’t blame HBO for making this choice, it’s probably the best move they made in terms of commercial succes, but the part that stings, and what rubs most people on here the wrong way imo, is that most of the dedicated fandom on tumblr is predominantly female, did read the books and mostly sees the ‘action’ as an addition to the characters personal narrative, struggles and psychological growth and not the other way round. I sometimes feel like i’m on the other end of the spectrum than what D&D are aiming at. I’m sure they try to satisfy book readers as well, but in general… when they have to make choices, it’s not gonna be in favor of me and the things I care about in the books. And as a result the show leaves me unsatisfied.

I’m laughing so hard oh my god
“And so the little lamb and his mama live happily ever after,” the girl finished reading her story aloud to the creature beside her. Hopeful orbs of blue glistened as she cocked her head up at him. “Didya like that, Mister Boogey?”
No response from underneath the black coat. She frowned, teetering off her seat ever so slowly before her tiny feet reached the ground.
“Mister Boogey?” she asked again, gripping the corners of the dark trench coat. When nothing responded, she slowly peeled it open, revealing the coat rack on which he had been perched. Where had he gone?
The little girl shrunk back, upset that her friend had left without a word. She curled up in her chair, clutching the book tightly in case he came back to hear the rest of the tale. Suddenly, a soft wind blew through the empty room, but before she could turn to see what had caused it, she was swept up in darkness.
“Gotcha,” the creature chuckled, cradling her close to him.
The child squeal with laughter most contagious, pleased of his return.
“I thought you left!” She gave a pout, looking up at his shadowy face.
“Why, my dear, I’d never leave you. I am your guardian after all, am I not?” The monster gave her a toothy smile. “And I will always be your Boogeyman.”
Tumblr: the only site that can turn something so terrifying into something utterly adorable
Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
Which means when you do run into something
It’s going to be angry and territorial
i like how we forget that tywin lannister ACTIVELY HATES tyrion in comparison to jaime and cersei
and then people are like oh he can totally stand up to tywin
That’s an excellent point, although I don’t know how effective a recommendation it is since as far as I can tell most of this fandom has only read the first third of ADWD. That’s the only explanation I can find for the widespread tendency to dismiss ADWD-Tyrion as a self-pitying drunk. Somehow they’ve missed the vast majority of the book, where he’s not only surviving slavery but repeatedly risks his life and uses his wits to protect others.
Also: lifelong emotional abuse aside, people do not stand up to Tywin Lannister and the ones who do get wiped off the fucking map. Tyrion’s not just reacting to a lifetime of having his self-esteem ground down into the dirt to where he’s almost psychologically incapable of defying Tywin; he’s also being practical. I love show!Shae, but she fundamentally does not get one thing, and that’s when she keeps saying “Let’s go to Pentos! Your father doesn’t rule the world!” and like statements. Because… Tywin does actually rule the country, he’s got nearly unlimited power and resources, and if he doesn’t want you running off to Pentos, your ass isn’t going to Pentos. (Which we know because Tyrion already tried when he was sixteen.)
And the one moment where he does stand up to him and says I’m not gonna let you continue to sexually abuse me or make me complicit in the abuse of others? Everyone goes “BUT HE SHOULDN’T GET A COOKIE FOR NOT RAPING SANSA” when that is not what the fucking scene is about. There is an entire context here of Tyrion having been a victim of sexual abuse when he was the same age Sansa is now and you can’t separate the events of their wedding night from that context.
people do not stand up to Tywin Lannister and the ones who do get wiped off the fucking map
There’s even a song about this.
Which is what makes people saying “Tyrion should just stand up to Tywin” even MORE FUCKING FRUSTRATING
‘cause I’m like were you not listening ten minutes ago when Cersei was like “are you familiar with the hit pop song ‘My Dad Kills Everyone Who Pisses Him Off’”
