whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
bless today because I’m feeling well enough not to lie on the bathroom floor all day wishing I could just die
ok so going through the anti Phoebe Tonkin tag is sort of activating my spite stanning lol or at least my hypocrisy radars
I also find it hilarious that they seem to criticise Hayley for shit they absolutely buy from Klaus, like just wanting a family and people who care about her when her actions in that regard can be questionable lmao
or that people hate her overacting when they cream themselves about JoMo. Sry I love Klaus but he is usually even more OTT than PT and it’s part of what makes the character so entertaining.
Stay transparent I guess.
I NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS SCENE.
So, I’ve already talked a bit (spoilers in the link) about how I was afraid of the way they would portray Ellaria before this season started: primarily in a sexual role. As expected, D&D definitely are capitalizing on two hot characters from a sexually liberal society by basically throwing them in as many orgies as they can (which isn’t stellar as far as characterization is concerned). But then, I’m really glad that we got this little snippet too!!!!
This is Ellaria telling Oberyn to call her if he needs help. It’s so important to note that usually the context of such a scene would be the more powerful character telling a perceived weaker one that they’ll be right outside the door with their sword drawn. The way Oberyn nods to her — not to give her permission to leave as is usual, but in assurance that it is okay to leave him alone. Think about how many times a person in authority asks to speak with a character ALONE, and then someone gives them a comforting hug and says, “I’ll be right here if you need me,” or “I’m just a word away,” before they leave. That is essentially exactly what Ellaria does. Consider the power dynamics in play here.
What a wonderful subversion and a nice little “fuck you” to Westerosi gender norms. The fact that a bastard from Dorne behaves in a way implying she could be more useful against Lord Tywin, effectively the leader of their world, speaks volumes of how Dorne treats their women.
Please give me more character development and less unnecessary sex scenes with Martells!!!
"why do you have to be such a hardass?" "because it’s your favorite thing about me."
