my lit teacher has set us an essay to do that we’ve already done before but just with a different partner text

i’ve become even less motivated since i realised this when i found the other essay

just no


i’ve seen a lot of angry posts on my dash about the implications of tonight’s episode on jaime’s character development (or, now, apparent lack thereof) and i’m 100% behind them. i adore jaime lannister with my heart and soul and the altar scene disgusted me.


something i’m not seeing discussed, which needs to be addressed, is d&d’s complete, repeated lack of respect for female agency. cersei clearly and definitively said “yes” to jaime in the books; it was one of the things that made the scene stand out in the wake of joffrey’s death when i read asos.

but in “breaker of chains,” cersei never gets to say yes. and that’s what makes everything so disgusting. 

this scene is supposed to be empowering for her. instead, d&d took away her agency and stripped her down, made her a victim (as if watching her son die a horrible death wasn’t victimization enough). 

i’m mad for jaime, yes. i’m mad for the incredible journey that he went on in terms of his character arc last season, and all the ways he’s grown.

but i’m a hell of a lot madder for cersei.

Remember that time when Beyoncé did a guitar solo with her voice?

or when she called upon the father, the son, and the holy voice to bless the harmonies?



Sharing a binding

This is a clever book from the 18th century, printed in Oxford in 1756. It presents both the Old and New Testament, although the books are not bound together the regular way, behind one another. Instead, the binder opted to place them next to each other. This very rare binding technique is part of a family that includes the dos-à-dos (or “back to back”) binding, which I blogged about before (here). Having the two testaments bound this way allowed the reader to consult passages from both books at the same time. Indeed, the empty pages in the front and back are filled with notes, including in Greek and Hebrew. It appears this clever binding had a reader to match.

“When Game of Thrones started audiences didn’t really take to Sansa. And I would read the reviews and that was a very sad time for me. I am a very sensitive person. But then season three came along and everything changed. That was the best. I’ve become very defensive of my character.




she actually lost first place and is in third, so you all should keep voting for her to at least beat racist katy perry!!
