It’s not over, don’t forget
The Iron Throne as described in the novels, officially endorsed by GRRM on his blog as the most accurate artistic representation thus far. By artist Marc Simonetti.
What the fuck that isn’t safe
No, it’s not. The histories talk about how the throne is cruel to unworthy kings. Jaime would talk about how Aerys Targaryen would constantly be covered in scabs from sitting on the throne carelessly.
'No man should sit comfortably upon the throne'
It is meant to be an ugly, monstrous beauty. And several times during the books Joffrey cuts himself on throne.
Text: Especially with #Ferguson all over social media, here’s my pet peeve: People who complain about racist family/friends without actively confronting them. Unless you’re depending on this racist for your livelihood, e.g. living in their home or relying on their income and they could cut you off, CALL THEM OUT. That racist aunt you visit maybe 3 times a year is posting about “thugs”? Send her facts. Show her the hypocrisy of her words. Don’t just let it go because you don’t want to “cause trouble”, THIS IS THE TROUBLE. And this applies to non-black POC. Recognize the anti-blackness in our communities (Asian Americans, you have a big responsibility in this) and do something about it. I always say no one is obligated to educate strangers that pop up demanding a breakdown of race relations, but if you consider yourself an ally yet can’t even confront that guy from high school you keep around on Facebook? I call bullshit.
