This is a repost of my reply to a thread which can be found here. I’m only reposting it because it sometimes gets cut off by peoples themes. it is a thread devoted to people talking about Dennys and how you never really go there, rather you end up there.

This is one of the best stories about a restaurant I have ever read…
yes because jaime would totally rape cersei
the jaime that felt sick at the sound of hearing rhaella targaryen raped
the jaime that also felt sick after he heard of ellia and her babies being brutally murdered
THE JAIME THAT GOT HIS HAND CUT OFF SAVING HIS FRIEND FROM BEING RAPED
THE JAIME THAT SAID HE WOULD RATHER DIE IF HE WAS A WOMAN THAN LET SOMEONE RAPE HIM
What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?
Anonymous asked: To go on your recent Game of Thrones comment. 'Since when was Jamie a rapist?' He pushed a kid out a window, he has killed countless people, he has killed his own cousin and he killed his king. ARE YOU SERIOUS?? You think rape is too much for him?!
Yes. I do. He pushed a kid out of a window to keep a secret that would have gotten him killed if anyone found out and he killed countless people in battle or as a manoeuvre of war. A characters motive always has to make sense and while it may not justify their actions it will move the story forward in some way, his motive for rape was… non-existent. And it moves the plot forward how??
Especially as in the promo for the next episode Cercei just seems to be cool with it.
Bad writing. They could have done better. They should have done better. I expect only the best from one of my favourite shows.
I could barely watch it. And I’ve sat through a lot of weird and fucked up shit in my time as a media student of 8 years.
riotgeekz asked: To contribute to the Native American actors discussion, my dad is a film maker(independent) who is Native American and he makes movies with lots of Native characters. All of which were played by Native actors. There are so many talented Native actors out there, so don't try to hide behind the "there's not a Native American actor who fits the role well enough" argument.
The sad truth is when producers say “didn’t fit the role well enough” what they actually mean to say is “we can’t make a profit off of this person by selling them to a wider audience” or “we could probably make a profit off of them but the project itself is risky and that isn’t one we’re willing to make without real star power”
It’s a money game. They aren’t in it for the entertainment or satisfaction of the audience, they just want you to hand over your cash.
Okay… this is a spoiler for GoT (sort of) so don’t read on if you haven’t watched episode 3.
I’ve not read the books - I just haven’t gotten around to it but after tonight’s episode I think I have to start reading them. (TW: rape)
Since when was Jamie a rapist? Like, he always came across as a respectable man towards women. A total douche at times, but never a rapist. I mean, what the fuck? I hear that wasn’t in the books. Why change that? It made me want to turn off. Why destroy the character? I’m sorry but no matter what Jamie is going to do in the future I no longer care for his storyline and want him to die painfully. Poor writing. Worst episode. Only worth watching for emotional scene between Tyrion and Podrick.
EDIT: Yes, he is a murderer, a pusher of children, and as a result a breaker of legs but they all came with reasons that moved the plot forward. The rape just seemed out of character and completely unnecessary.
destroymycage asked: I just saw your "on being deaf" post. First of all, a looong hug: \(^_^)/ I know words can't change anything about your situation and I don't know you long enough but from what I saw of you on Anja's blog, I feel like you don't necessarily need that second ear. You might not be able to hear music the way it's supposed to be heard, but you hear with your heart. You understand people and you help people and you make them smile and you know what to say because you hear things other people can't
That is the most beautiful thing anyone has ever said to me. Thank you so much. *BIGHUGS* you’re awesome. :)
When I was a small baby of six months old I had meningitis. (It isn’t as sexy as it sounds) And this lead to me becoming deaf in my left ear. A lucky escape for someone so young with such a disease. Anyway, fast forward 20 years and I am annoyed that I won’t ever be able to experience most songs as they are supposed to be played. Nor will I ever be able to listen to an audio split track.
This upsets me greatly.
