gosh don’t u just hate it when strong female characters fall prey to stupid girly stuff like human emotions and interpersonal relationships

i am so disappoint game of thrones

brienne of tarth WAS amazing

but since you’ve now had a single scene in which you’ve made explicit the already heavily implicit element of romantic subtext in her relationship with jaime lannister, that completely erases every other aspect of her character both retroactively and in the future

such a shame that nothing else about her matters or even exists anymore and never will again

when will people finally stop ruining strong female characters by letting them have FEELINGS and FALL IN LOVE as if they are actually nuanced beings instead of appropriately strong and impenetrable caricatures >:(

lolol

The only unique virtue most protagonists have is that they are given the *role* of protagonist of the narrative.

saathi1013:

Everything else is filtered through that sympathetic lens, including the relative merits/morality of their actions.  Which means that we, as viewers/readers and especially as transformative works creators/consumers, ought to be aware that sometimes the only reason that we applaud/excuse/rationalize an action is because we’re given insight into (and, by extension, sympathize/empathize with) the person who does it.

There are also ingrained (and sometimes subconscious) cultural/personal biases, all of which combine to create a preference for a very specific range of characters, often white (and cishet, TAB, etc) men.  

And if we don’t factor that into discussion/evaluation of characters/narratives, we lose a great deal of nuance and significance, and can sometimes perpetuate the structures we claim to be challenging/subverting/transforming.

Hi, I’m alive, I’ve just been very busy.  Work and guests and stuff.  Also, I seem to have fallen back into the sewing fandom.

reaction to PoI 3.19, mostly non-spoilery:

Didn’t love it.  Didn’t hate it.  Some looooong moments, interspersed with some fun ones.  I’m relieved they didn’t play up the attraction very much between Shaw and Lostie-guy, because I don’t believe in googly-eyed Shaw, not even for Nestor Carbonell.  (Although he is fabulous, and I would hit that.)

The ending startled me, simply because I was expecting something like that at the end of the season rather than now.
