SUCH BOOT i want to have lots of boots
For my 10,000th post here’s a bunch of my own boots because I’m an egotistical fuckwit. :3
me every time I actually leave the house to do something social.
Look at that ducky, though, he jumps up like “The One? YES I WANT TO BE THE ONE, OOH PICK ME”
there isnt enough cute fanart of this friendship on the internet
Vampire squid, Vampyroteuthis infernalis, literally translated as “vampire squid of hell.”
While not a true squid (order Teuthida), it does share the class Cephalopoda. Bizarre enough to warrant a separate order for itself (Vampyromorphida), it is the only extant, or living species of its taxon.

Tywin was an absolute monster, the most horrifying character in the series so far. I don’t get how you can think his rule did any good for Westeros at all unless you conceive of Westeros as consisting solely of the Lannisters. He’s entirely motivated by profit, power and pride. Tywin had half of Westeros raped, murdered and burned for no reason other than to insure the continuing power of his own house. That’s not a leader; that’s a liability (the word is not nearly strong enough) to the realm.
He had entire harvests burned in Autumn leaving the people, at least the ones he left alive, to starve without stores for a long Winter. Good for Westeros? He unleashed rapers, torturers and murderers, knowing full well what they were, on the people of the Kingdom he was supposed to lead and protect. He conspired with the Freys and the Boltons, who are shits. He is bar none the worst father in the series, having raised incestuous twins, and having turned Tyrion, who was predisposed to be a nice guy, into someone bitter and hateful enough for kinslaying (a damn satisfying scene, and necessary!). He remained blind to his children’s obvious flaws (and strengths in the case of Tyrion) and refused to see Joffrey’s blatant psychopathy even when Tyrion pointed it out. He had an innocent girl gang raped because she damaged his prestige. And Kevan is a slavering little dog who went along with all this; someone’s already quoted his high opinion of Gregor and his boys and what they did in the Riverlands. And this is all off the top of my head. The current zeitgeist seems to hold a lot of unwarranted respect for “tough” leaders who are willing to do the “hard thing.” It also seems to be oblivious to the fact that the “hard thing” is always bad for the people and always for personal profit and power. Tywin’s a perfect fictional example."
Just about the worst lesson we could draw from the way Ned’s decency made him a failure in King’s Landing is to equate indecency with success. But that’s precisely the lesson lots of readers have drawn: Tywin’s a great leader, Victarion could be Azor Ahai reborn, Dany needs to let Meereen fall to the slavers because what she really should be doing is slaughtering her way westward.
The nice thing about being a reader of these books rather than a character in them is that there’s no consequence for holding the people we’re reading about to a higher (or really, to ANY) moral standard. So why don’t we do that?
tim is taller than jaime
The next day, Jaime wakes up to find he’s had a mysterious overnight growth spurt that makes him precisely one inch taller than Tim. When questioned, the Scarab will only respond, “Dominance must be asserted.”
