Love is a choice we make. If you take away that choice, it’s not really love is it?

there are fandom posts with “i’d rather be in middle earth” and “i’d rather be at hogwarts” etc but there are none of those for the ASOIAF fandom. nobody wants to be in westeros. the people in westeros dont even want to be in westeros.

"The original weapon was absurdly large. Plenty of steel for two swords.”

"There are still lines in the play that I find really difficult to speak, and you know you’re dealing with great writing when the words have that much of an effect on you." —  Richard Armitage on The Crucible (Source)

"In fairy tales, monsters exist to be a manifestation of something that we need to understand, not only a problem we need to overcome, but also they need to represent, much like angels represent the beautiful, pure, eternal side of the human spirit, monsters need to represent a more tangible, more mortal side of being human: aging, decay, darkness and so forth. And I believe that monsters originally, when we were cavemen and you know, sitting around a fire, we needed to explain the birth of the sun and the death of the moon and the phases of the moon and rain and thunder. And we invented creatures that made sense of the world: a serpent that ate the sun, a creature that ate the moon, a man in the moon living there, things like that. And as we became more and more sophisticated and created sort of a social structure, the real enigmas started not to be outside. The rain and the thunder were logical now. But the real enigmas became social. All those impulses that we were repressing: cannibalism, murder, these things needed an explanation. The sex drive, the need to hunt, the need to kill, these things then became personified in monsters. Werewolves, vampires, ogres, this and that. I feel that monsters are here in our world to help us understand it. They are an essential part of a fable." — Guillermo Del Toro (via vaginawoolf)

"Ecstasy. From the Greek ekstasis. Meaning not what you think. Meaning not euphoria or sexual climax or even happiness. Meaning literally: a state of displacement, of being driven out of one’s senses." — Jeffrey Eugenides (via mirroir, entelechies) (via cloverover-dover)

If they are monsters, so am I.
