Cersei in ADwD

There aren’t words enough to express how upset I am whenever I see people gleeful over what happened to Cersei in ADwD. Look, she’s not a good person. In fact she’s awful. She murdered her best friend as a child, ordered the murder of her husband’s bastards, ignored the sociopathy of her firstborn, and gave people to Qyburn to be experimented on (i.e. tortured). But what happened in ADwD wasn’t about any of those things.

What happened in ADwD was her being punished for being sexually active. She confessed only to having sex with various men after Robert’s death. Her “Walk of Shame” is punishment for a widow having sex after her husband’s death. It is slut-shaming taken to the extreme. And anybody who revels in that is gross.

I think when people revel in it they are missing the author’s intent. I don’t think GRRM wrote it to punish Cersei, he wrote it to show that all women, even the queen, were at risk of sexual violence. The fact that her uncle went along with it makes it especially cruel to me.

Absolutely. If I recall correctly Cersei told Sansa in one of their ACoK scenes that “a queen is only a woman.” I think Cersei’s whole story is meant to show that being a woman in a pseudo-medieval world sucks. She is the most powerful woman in Westeros - and even she can be a victim of domestic violence and marital rape, and be shamed by the clergy and mob for being a woman.

I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.

*jumps into this bandwagon several weeks late with Starbucks* Am I cool now?

This entire post is dedicated to my awesome (in a dysfunctional sort of way) Team Edain family. Live fast, die awesome.

We are one person in two bodies. 

So I say, “Live and let live.” That’s my motto. “Live and let live.” Anyone who can’t go along with that, take him outside and shoot the motherfucker.

[WRITING IN THE DARK] is a mix for writers looking for inspiring and yet unobtrusive music. Over the years I’ve found myself returning to certain tracks — in part for the feelings they evoke— but mostly for their ability to aid my writing process without distracting me from the story. The above is a selection of my favorites~ ♥︎

♪ Listen to this mix on 8tracks ♪

Ever since I answered this question, people have been asking me for my favorite music tracks to listen to— well, here you go! These are seriously some of my favorite tracks to listen to while writing, "Schala’s Theme" in particular tends to sneak into every single one of my books. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed making it~ ♥︎

Can we please stop making fun of people who are over 20 and are still virgins

Can we please stop making fun of people who are not interested in sex/are repulsed by sex

Can we please stop making fun of people who aren’t interested in a sexual or romantic relationship

Can we please stop making tv shows about virgins trying to lose their virginity like it’s a leech upon their life destroying all of their goals and opportunities?

The worst bullies you will ever encounter in your life are your own thoughts.
