He was followed by a haggard grey-faced whore, accused of giving the pox to four of Tarly’s soldiers. “Wash out her private parts with lye and throw her in a dungeon,” Tarly commanded.
Put down your sandwich, because today’s topic is the pox. Not to be confused with redspots, which while also referred to as ‘pox’ is something like chickenpox, the pox is an STD and there are two likely culprits: gonorrhea or syphilis. One was an STD in medieval Europe, while the other most likely was not. Good luck finding a prophylactic in Westeros or medieval Europe and moon tea won’t prevent the transfer of STDs, which undoubtedly means that STDs—whatever they happened to be—were commonplace.
- a waste of time
Tell me again how asexuals are accepted.
I’m glad that Bilbo Baggins exists
Because in the book, the dude was pretty firmly middle aged when his crazy-ass adventure started
He was settled down in the house that belonged to his parents and had done precisely jack shit with his life
It gives me hope that maybe some nutcase wizard will eventually show up and be like yo
you’re a burglar now
don’t even care that you didn’t roll rogue homie we got dragons to slay and kingdoms to save
Captain America #14: pretty obvious overall, and still not a good arc. I kind of wish Steve had killed Nuke? People would hate Remender even more than they already do, sure, but that would make an interesting story. And I feel I should be looking forward to the repercussions of the photo, but I can’t bring myself to care.
Captain America: Living Legend #4: this was such an overestimated series; the only actual good thing here was the art. I’ve seen some people say the Steve in this series is the real Steve, whereas everywhere else he’s just badly written. Seriously? He’s nothing but a soldier in this series, with no personality whatsoever, for better or for worse. Sure, he IS a soldier, but the character is not supposed to be limited to that. They couldn’t have written a more generic Cap even if they tried! There’s no feeling in this thing, but since it looks so good and we waited so long for this to be published, no one seems to care… And that ending… a little more and it would delve into the patriotic bs that is always a major risk in Captain America stories.
Wolverine and the X-Men #39: dude, I didn’t know I missed seeing Cyclops and Wolvie fighting side by side until I read this! One thing I know for sure is that I need to see the one-on-one tests against Storm! And what is that homework? Best thing ever! I kind of wish the Joseph guy would actually become a mutant now.
Cable and X-Force #17: each issue only makes me ship Nemesis and Forge harder! And Nemesis is the best, period.
Inhumanity: The Awakening #1: interesting so far, and I like this girl’s looks. Some heavy themes implied here. I just think they went a bit too far with the connectivity stuff; it became really distracting.
The Walking Dead #118: NOOOOOO!!!! THEY KILLED THE TIGER! I don’t think I had ever cried at a death in these comics, and I certainly haven’t been affected by any since Tyreese.
Mighty Avengers #4: really well written, though I’m still doing my best to ignore the art (I’ll admit, though: Sam looks really hot). Sam and “not-Blade” had the best lines. And I just love how SpiderOck sounds so much like an insane super-villain here, even more than in his series. She-Hulk soon, yay! But it’s kind of depressing to see them refer to the main Avengers as “Stark’s team”. Cap doesn’t have any team now? Wtf?
There are simply not enough hours in a day (or money in a week) to read all the good things published today. Maybe I’ll leave the rest for Christmas, since there will be nothing good to read then.
Wonder Man #24 (1993)
I just love these glimpses of the Hank-Wanda friendship; a pity there are so few of them. And it’s kind of adorable that he calls her kid when she can’t be more than a couple of years younger than him (well, not counting the time she spent frozen as a baby, of course).
The joys of the Cersei Lannister tag.
What is Cersei life tragedy? The fact that daddy was mean to her. Boo hoo. The (remaing) Starks have lost their family and home, but do you see them becoming all “queen of evil”?
Yes, Yes that’s it. That’s exactly it. That’s all there is. You ignorant fuck. Forget the years of sexual abuse at Robert’s hands. Forget living your whole life with a prophecy that predicts your death and that of your children. Forget living in a society that thinks you nothing more than a hole for a king to stick his cock in and get his heirs out. Forget obvious clinical psychological issues of megalomania. A WHOLE FUCKING CHARACTER REDUCED TO “DADDY WAS MEAN TO HER”. WHAT A FUCKING JOKE. And yes, the Starks did not become “queen of evil”. You have a zombie who hangs people, a nine year old assassin who want to avenge their family. You also have a cannibal who will probably become war machine and a tree god. YEAH POOR STARKS THEIR COPING MECHANISM IS SO MUCH BETTER ISN’T IT.
Practically all the other characters (except for Joffrey) have been through a lot more than her.
Yes please. Tell me how Jaime Lannister, the golden Lion of Lannister had it worse than her up until he got his hand chopped off. Tell me how Ned Stark had it worse than her. Tell me how Robert Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon, Renly Baratheon had it worse than her. Tell me how Benjen Stark had it worse than her. Tell me how Oberyn Martell had it worse than her. Tell me, please. EN-FUCKING-LIGHTEN ME. HOW.
Now, while I agree that in GoT and even in real life sometimes men have it a lot better I still don’t think anyone should give into spite and aim to ruin others’ lives just because yours isn’t what you’d like it to be.
Who the fuck are you to judge how people should react to the shit they’ve been through. Let me guess, do you think an abuse victim should not want their abuser in prison just because, hey shit happens? Do you think a child with neglectful parents should not want to cut them off because all they did was make their life hell? WHAT A FUCKING GREAT MENTALITY YOU HAVE THERE. STOP JUDGING PEOPLE FOR THE WAY THEY REACT TO ABUSE. Her rage is fucking justified, her need to unleash is fucking justified, despite the grossness of her methods. Yes, what she does is awful, but do not judge her reasons. She has every fucking reason to want everyone burned to the ground.
For example, Danny has it very rough too and she is driven by revenge but her intentions are pure – she doesn’t want to harm innocents or those who can’t fight back like Cersei does.
This is why, Danny is called mother while Cersei is nothing more than a brother-fucker.
I don’t even have anything to say to this, I just want people to laugh at it for how dumb this is. I even bolded it to be sure no one misses it.
Even in her relationship with Jaime she is selfish –while he was missing she had no problem sleeping with that Lannister boy (who btw seems underage). To me it seems like Jaime is the one really invested while she just sees him as an escape from the brutal reality she has written herself into and yet another tool for entertainment.
AH AND THERE IT IS. JAIME LANNISTER IS BETTER THAN CERSEI. CERSEI DOESN’T LOVE HIM. CERSEI SLEEPS WITH OTHER PEOPLE!!!!! LMFAO C-C-C-COMBO stupidity and slut-shaming in one go. Well you clearly haven’t read the books, judging by the pile of bull-shit I had to go through in this post (never quite THIS MUCH IN ONE SINGLE POST, CONGRATULATIONS!) or you would know Cersei’s psyche enough to know that she sees sex as a power tool. Also, when Jaime is away, she literally sleep swith lancel because he looks vaguely like him and is the closest thing she has to her brother.
Last but not least Cersei isn’t strong at all. Being strong doesn’t mean to give into the darkness inside you, it means to overcome it and try to fix the world even though it might have broken you in countless ways.
Thank you, Mother Theresa. Stockholm is handing out Nobel prizes for peace soon, I’m sure their invitation is on their way.
Team Dragonstone Meme: six scenes (1/6)
“Melony,” she heard a woman cry. A man’s voice called, “Lot Seven.” She was weeping, and her tears were flame. And still she drank it in.
