Omg I am actually the worst at articulating my ASOIAF feelingz & opinionz so I’m very sorry for how shit this will be. Also I guess kind of uh vaguely spoilery? But not too bad. More vague than spoilery tbh.
Sansa is magnificent and wonderful and perfect and haters are so gross. I really love the whole idea of the perfect little lady exposed to horror and cruelty who clings to that propriety as armor and both as something that no longer makes sense and as the only thing left that does make sense (does this sentence even make sense wow). Sansa is just so gr8 ah!!! Pretty much all her ships are fairly creepy but like I can see the reasoning behind most of them. Personally as far as ASOIAF goes I just multiship the living daylights out of everything and I feel that I should mention that I ship the three eldest Stark children + bonus Jon Snow in a big pile of interchangeable pairings/threesomes/foursome (when they’re alive I mean, sry Robb u can txt it from the grave~~) (also in a world where they’re all legal consenting adults and whatnot). Oh and also with all their direwolves so up to an eightsome in imaginary everyone-is-alive fantasyland I suppose.
SANSA AND ARYA ARE SUCH A GOOD SISTERS NARRATIVE AUGH like I just love sisters? Which is weird because I don’t really like my own sister much but yeah I like how they are foils and whatnot and how they’re all grr grr fight fight toward each other but they still have ~~that bond~~ or whatever and both heading toward the end goal of bitter revenge, just in different ways. OH AND ALSO speaking of parallels that thing floating around a while ago pointing out the Sansa/Theon paraellels AUGH MY HEART. That fucking destroyed me. Um I am really bad at talking about the whole Stark sisters deal and so many people have done it so much better than I have but I LOVE THEM SO MUCH MY BBS IN HIDING DOING WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO SURVIVE and just everything, all the feelings, all of them.
So I mean obviously I love them both to pieces but aaaactually Arya is my favorite. People have done some really good analysis about all the ‘look at the horrible things that happen to a child when you expose them to horrible things’ (although I’m not really a fan of calling her a sociopath because I’m not so big on how much that word gets thrown around like it’s popcorn) and yes but also at the same time I am just too busy stanning the fuck out of her, my murderous dearheart. It’s super icky when people are like ‘yes Arya perfect ~~~~tomboy~*~ hero; boo stupid Sansa!!!’ because why would you have to throw one sister under in order to love the other??? it makes no sense (although obviously I am not surprised when I see it because people have a lot of really terrible opinionz) and I hate it but yeah the point is that I love Arya. My fantastic Arya Underfoot, my perfect tiny bloody champion, who, like her sister, has left behind most everything she once knew. I love her sfm. Brilliant loyal homeless boundless fighter running away from everything while running toward it at the same time, impossible stubborn heroine, etc.
Also known as “creaky voice,” vocal fry refers to the low, guttural vibrations that sometimes occur in speech, often appearing at the end of sentences. (Here’s an example.) It’s the lowest of three so-called vocal registers, the other two being falsetto at the high end, and modal, which is the normal speaking register. As one linguist put it, vocal fry has been commonly identified in speech “since forever” (in some languages, it’s a legitimate part of the phonemic system), but now some studies hint that it’s particularly popular among young American women of a certain type.
I’m wearing a red plaid lumberjack shirt and leopard-print boyshorts with hot pink bows because I’m the coolest person I know and I almost took a picture and posted it but then I was like no Holl the internet is forever
