been writing so much lately, using all my free time to find the words, not caring how they stumble from my mouth, freeing
I was not made for this world.
Simultaneously too much the animal,
too much the human for it.
Feral, like the pig. Hungry.
My hands, dirty from rooting at the ground
searching for truffles, tremble.
But like the suckling human child: mouth raw,
sore from biting at mother crone’s empty breast,
and bleeding now, it grows slack.
Aging head, heavy with antlers
inching higher, hangs low.
Eyes, strained from staring skyward
in search of god, exhausted, close.
Lacking fur, I grow cold.
Brimming with consciousness, I grow hungry.
Impossible possibility— I die.
How soon, how swiftly
this living loses it’s meaning.
Isamu Noguchi with Undine (Nadja), 1925
I just really identify with Sansa Stark. Like, I haven’t gone through the emotional ordeal she has (who has though right?) but as someone who is not necessarily strong in the traditional sense, someone whose femininity has always been seen as a weakness, someone who feels trapped by the system, like they can’t fix anything or help the people they want to help, because of how deeply ingrained in our society all of the violence and ignorance is, it would just mean so much to me to see her become as strong as I know she can become. It would mean so much to me to see her using what I, and so many other people, have been told are negative and useless qualities, to make real positive changes in a world that sometimes seems inherently evil
i’m only on SOS so i’m not sure how she develops but so far i feel like she doesn’t want it. i think she’s just done with politics bc it’s cost her so much, haha. i want her to escape and be happy and free and live forever
I haven’t read the books yet so I’m clueless about what her characterization is in them, but based on what we’ve seen in the tv show, I think she has a lot of potential for growth. Like, yeah, she’s pretty fed up with everyone’s shit. Her dad’s dead. Her brother, her mother. She thinks her sister’s probably dead too, and she almost had to marry the biggest asshole in the history of assholes. So it makes sense that she wants it all to end, for it all to go back to the way it was. Who could blame her? But she’s still just a kid. She’s still porcelain. And all of this stuff that’s happened to her, it’s still very much a fresh wound. But eventually wounds scar over, and I think she’s going to become hardened from it all. Not jaded or unfeeling, but strong, with a firm understanding of what’s right and wrong. Eventually she’s going to become steel. Because she’s going to have to, and because, after all is said and done, after she’s had some time to grieve, she’s going to become sick of not being in control of her own life, and she’s going to want to start making some changes. You know, work from inside the system. Maybe this will lead to her sitting on the iron throne, maybe not, but I think she knows that the chances of her being able to leave the political realm behind are pretty slim, too slim for her to continue doing what she has been doing: just surviving. Which means she’s going to have to figure out how to start living again. And I think the only way for her to do that right now, is to gain some political footing. Plus, she has so many strong women in her life right now from Margaery to Olenna to even Cersei who, in spite of what their allegiances might be, will, I think, inspire her to become just as or powerful and influential as they are. Also, let’s not forget her mother who, in spite of not holding the title of king, was a political powerhouse herself. I can’t imagine that her mother’s ideals, that her father’s sense of justice, wouldn’t instill in Sansa the need to rectify the evil occurring around her. After having survived for so long, after seeing all the violence committed by those who are in control, I just can’t see Sansa being able to turn her back on all that without trying to fix it. As a Stark, as a just in general strong and moral person, I don’t think she has it in her to give up the fight her parents started.
I am so here for sansa stark
like, she is hands down one of the most complex and interesting characters on the show and I wouldn’t doubt it if grr martin were like, “fuck all ya’ll this girl’s got some mad political game” and put her on the iron throne
Of all those at the high table, only Sansa Stark was not smiling.
okay but this research could totally legitimize my many theories of who is and isn’t straight/gay
We’re discussing scent and pheromones and oh my god
LESBIANS CAN LITERALLY DETECT OTHER LESBIANS BY SENSE OF SMELL AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY PREFER THE SCENT OF OTHER LESBIANS
LIKE THERE IS SCIENTIFIC PROOF OF THIS I LOVE IT I LOVE PHEROMONES
This explains gay-dar. It’s not a sense of just knowing it’s the fact that we can fucking smell each other
au de homõ
okay but what about gay men
I must know for the sake of science
Virginia Woolf, The Pargiters: The Novel-Essay Portion of THE YEARS (via fetchhappened)
this lady died in the 1800s and this shit is still true today, aka we need more female perspective and female-centered stories in the media that are not romance or romantic comedies, like that’s the only thing women do.
