I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

Now that I’ve had a few minutes to digest that scene… 

I’m actually really, really angry. 

It’s not just because Jaime is my favorite character, but because Jaime is (per the books) one of the few men in this series who respects women. 

Jaime, who wanted to protect Rhaella from Aerys. 

Jaime, who actually grasps that rape is a terrible, terrible thing (“If I were a woman, I’d make them kill me,” he said to Brienne, a line that was included in the show). 

Jaime, who actually left when Cersei asked him to leave (even though he “travelled a thousand leagues to get to [her] and lost the best part of [himself] along the way”). 

Jaime, who is very intentionally not a rapist because he is supposed to be the archetypical knight in shining armor who believes in chivalry and old-fashioned romance and protecting highborn ladies.

Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.

when the oppressed/minority is quiet or kind, the majority doesn’t go ‘well they are so sweet, we should give them rights.’

when that happens, the majority does not notice the oppressed. they become invisible.

that is why no minority is required to be nice or sweet- because they will be flies on a wall otherwise

ideal hogwarts students:

  • aromantic wizards being absolutely immune to amortentia, it only smelling like the ingredients put into it when they smell it, and teaching other students how to identify the stuff on any food or drink
  • gender confused ravenclaw leafing through glossarys of pronouns and accidentally getting 80% of the class to stay up leafing through similar glossarys, screaming out pronouns in the common room when they think they found one that may fit
  • slytherin students sometimes taking polyjuice potion to pose as one of their depressed members who was having a bad day and really couldn’t bring themselves to classes
  • kids who read about the second great wizarding war and, when reading about Severus Snape’s brave acts, argue “well yeah ok but he was kind of an asshole still?”

—Wizard broomchairs instead of wheelchairs. No need to worry about stairs when you’re floating, right? Just say “up” to it like you would with a broomstick and it hovers a comfortable 7 inches from the ground, though it can be raised and lowered depending on the wizard’s preference/mood.

—No one giving Wizards with ADD/learning/organizational disabilities any guff about the rememberalls they carry on hand. 

—Aspie and autistic Wizards with dazzling proficiency in more mysterious and complex branches of magic like Wandlore and wandmaking.

—The books in Hogwart’s library reacting to dyslexic students trying to read them and helping them: breaking up paragraphs, highlighting words, sometimes reading themselves aloud if the student is having a particularly difficult time or has eyesight problems.

—Professors enchanting gloves to use sign language next to them as they teach for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

—Neville Longbottom instigating a schoolwide program to foster better communication between students and teachers and better regulation of how house points are handed out, and the general effort toward a less stressful learning environment, referred to lovingly by students as ‘Deebass,” from the joking acronym, “Don’t Be A Snape”

About Cersei and Jaime

jaimelannister:

racefortheironthrone:

stannisisthefury - so according to Alex Graves (source): 

"Well, it becomes consensual by the end, because anything for them ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle. Nobody really wanted to talk about what was going on between the two characters, so we had a rehearsal that was a blocking rehearsal. And it was very much about the earlier part with Charles (Dance) and the gentle verbal kidnapping of Cersei’s last living son. Nikolaj came in and we just went through one physical progression and digression of what they went through, but also how to do it with only one hand, because it was Nikolaj. By the time you do that and you walk through it, the actors feel comfortable going home to think about it. The only other thing I did was that ordinarily, you rehearse the night before, and I wanted to rehearse that scene four days before, so that we could think about everything. And it worked out really well. That’s one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever done." 

wow. in my opinion this is even more disturbing than the scene itself. this is not just about turning a consensual scene into a rape scene, this is the director NOT EVEN REALIZING he turned it into a rape scene. this is the director talking about a woman saying ‘no stop right now, it’s not right’ repeatedly while crying and trying to fight the other person off while the man thrusts into her saying ‘i don’t care’ and having the nerve to call it consensual, because ‘power struggles are a turn-on for them’, because ‘anything for them results in a turn-on’,  like being turned on by powerplay is making this scene consensual, like being turned on anyway by whatever they do makes this scene consensual. well im sorry to inform you mister director but THERE’S A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSENSUAL SEX AND RAPE AND THE KEYWORD IS CONSENT. AND THERE WASN’T ANY CONSENT IN THIS SCENE.

Unfortunately, the show is wrong, on both counts. Changing a scene from consensual sex to rape is not just a pedantic issue of accuracy—it’s a problem with story. The Daenerys Targaryen who falls in love with a man who granted her respect when no one else would is different from the Daenerys Targaryen who fell in love with her rapist. It changes that relationship. (Dany falling in love with Drogo, and calling him her “sun and stars,” makes a whole lot more sense now, doesn’t it?)

Similarly, Jaime is a figure of chivalric love in the books—despite his arrogance and ruthlessness, his devotion and sense of duty to Cersei, the only woman he has ever loved, is so fervent as to border on adoration. Admittedly, the show can’t rely on his point-of-view chapters, as the book does, to communicate that love. But given what we have seen Cersei Lannister capable of—her ex-husband is hardly the only man she’s had killed—is it even conceivable that she would stand for it? Jaime raping Cersei is a major anomaly for these two characters—even based purely on what we’ve seen in the show. It’s just not something that either character would do.

*tosses Bernioff and Weiss into a trashcan* (via tramampoline)

EXACTLY HOW I FELT ABOUT IT. It doesn’t even seem right for EITHER character. Cersei would never stand for that and Jaime wouldn’t dare try. Ughhhhh
