Random, while I’m thinking about Sansa
My OTP for her is Sansa/Sansa. Because I want her to realize that she doesn’t need someone else to be whole. I would dearly love it if she went all Elizabeth I.
lion-heart10 asked: Game of Thrones for your fandom list!
Here we go!
-My OTP: Renly/Loras 5evah
-My OT3: Renly/Loras/Margaery
-My BroTP: Tyrion/Bronn
-My NoTP: Sansa/The Hound. Bleh, on so many levels.
-My favorite scene: Oh, so many … but Dany’s little “Valyrian is my mother tongue, you miserable fuckwit. Dracarys.” is up there. Probably a half dozen of Brienne’s and Arya’s scenes, too.
-What I wish would happen/would have happened in canon: Lots of stuff for book canon. For show canon, I’m deeply sad that we didn’t get the “sun has set” line from Loras.
sorry not sorry
That is perfect.
Spoilery GoT reax
Under the cut!
Somehow, I’d missed that our dear Torstein was also the doomed Ser Hugh.
My one gripe with GoT: Oh boy, yet another bisexual character who kills people, is possibly mentally unwell, and who has sex or wants sex all the time. Because we didn’t have 405039562648396834060436 of those.
FTR: Oberyn and Ellaria are canon bi and frisky in the books. They’re also heroes, inasmuch as anyone in this universe is.
Also: We bi folks have next to no representation in popular media at all, and bi men even less. The vast majority of bi characters are young femmes. In fact, how many bi men can you list whose names aren’t Jack Harkness?
Beyond that, a lot of bi people are highly sexual. It’s a natural variation in who we are. I get that that part of our community is somewhat overrepresented in popular media, but I’m not about to erase one of the very rare legit instances of representation just because it’s not exactly what we’d like.
Attention King’s Landing:
You now have a Bisexual Badass in your city. Genuflect accordingly, motherfuckers.
This is HBO. I doubt they’ll do anything but use Ellaria and Oberyn’s sexuality just to be able to show more boobs and be as “scandalous” as possible.
Eh, I think that’s possible, but given that even in canon they were wont to partake of the whorehouses, I don’t think the intro scene was unnecessarily gratuitous. Actually, I think it was a nicely succinct and unequivocal way of establishing their sexuality. No long infodumps or veiled suggestions or anything. Just yep, they’re queer and badass and now we can talk about everything else that matters about them. I really feel like that was one of the best, most canon-adherent character intros in the whole show (some of the others being Loras, Arya and Brienne.)
I’ve had my complaints about how the show has handled sex and nudity in the past (ask me about Loras getting frisky post-Renly. ARGH,) but I really feel like this episode was very well done on that count. It feels like they heard the complaints and tried to adjust.

Plus shit (finally!) going down on SHIELD and Grimm and also my usual amusement with H50 and Criminal Minds.
Almost every day this month is filled with candy and toys for me. I am one happy little fanthing. :)
Singer of classical stuffs.
Shameless fanthing.Queer/Genderqueer. Feminist. Progressive. Gen X. Northwest snob. Journalist and media-deconstruction nerd. Happily married and an adoptive parent of a most excellent little boy. Endless pontificator on topics both sublime and ridiculous. Expect both breathless pop-culture squee and wordy rageflails about social justice.
My "home" fandom is Primeval, but these days I'm most heavily into Vikings, Game of Thrones and Arrow. Check my background image to see the other current stuff I usually post about.
Also into older/cancelled stuff including Sinbad, Leverage, Fringe, BSG, Lost, Sanctuary, The Hour, Being Human (UK), Eureka, Longmire, Merlin, and The Borgias, along with a ton of other stuff from the last ~40 years. If it has a kickass chick, a charming rogue, and/or an adorkable nerd in it, I probably like it.
Oddly enough, I'm not a Whovian and I kinda lost interest in SPN, but I'm still sort of fandom-adjacent there, since it's impossible not to be whilst on Tumblr.
Fun fact: I had crushes on both C-3P0 and Data.
