take me down to the water
fill you up with the deepest of sorrows
that’s my man, that’s my brother
shine a light on my home
The dichotomy of feminine Sansa and her tomboy little sister, Arya, coupled with the modern tendency to champion a misunderstanding of feminism in the form of “strong women” only, erroneously causes many readers and viewers to assume that Sansa is somehow in the wrong from the very beginning. They view her through the misconception-colored glasses of “femininity=weakness”, and assume she is weak, soft, and shallow.
Despite the wishes of fanboys everywhere, Sansa Stark is here to stay, and may be one of the most important characters in political-fantasy to date. The young girl, trained in courtesy and domestic arts, began coming of age, gaining political awareness, and fighting for her own survival before many other characters in this series, and has the potential to become the most powerful player of “the game of thrones” in Westeros."
It hurts so much, she thought.
She had always heard that love was a surer route to the people’s loyalty than fear. If I am ever a queen, I’ll make them love me.
Little Sansa things: Sansa often clasps her hands together when she’s anxious, in a defensive gesture to appear composed and in control. She develops this habit after season 1.
I have been into the Game of Thrones tag once or twice before, i never returned because it was appalling. Which is a shame, because I seriously think the ASOIAF fandom is crazy talented, and sometimes pretty things don’t get noticed because of all the wank.
The idea is, let’s create a tag for graphic stuff. Graphics, gifs, photosets, gifsets, whatever, as long as it’s a visual. Let’s make a tag that one won’t be scared to check because of stupid “unpopular opinions”, or “hey jaime lannister looks like the dude from shrek!” or “i just started game of thrones and [insert long list of character dissing here]”.
Tag your graphic stuff with #gotedit, and let’s create a clean environment. It’s possibly the best way to discover new graphic makers, and that’ll help make your blog pretty.
But this fandom has amazing fiction writers too, and many of them don’t make graphics, so their work often goes unnoticed among all the spam. So what about a tag for all the great fanfiction this fandom produces?
Tag your fanfiction with #gotfic and we can make a go-to tracked tag for ASOIAF fanfiction! Reblog and spread the word!
Remember that only the first 5 tags of original posts show up in tracked tags, so be sure to put #gotfic as one of your first 5 tags. (Check out this post to read more about how tagging works on tumblr.)
While we’re at it there should be a tag for Game of Thrones/ASOIAF fanvids = #gotvid. And maybe for fanmixes = #gotmix.
