“Also, I have always been vaguely confused by that gifset floating around Tumblr where Sokka says his ex-girlfriend turned into the moon (‘That’s rough, buddy’). And now I know… she literally turned into the moon. I don’t know what I thought it would be.”— The Mary Sue ATLA Recaps are a delight and you should all be reading them (x)
Despite various reservations I have about some of the casting and some of the roles themselves, I’m sure the actors will be just fine in what they’re doing. (Has anyone ever just not fit at all in this show? The acting has never been a problem, it’s the scripts people worry about.) I greatly look forward to Alexander Siddig as Doran, that’s a dreamcast come true, and hopefully he’ll be a saving grace in whatever the hell is going on in the show’s Dorne plotline.
Re Arianne, it’s not just tumblr “overreacting”, it’s literally everywhere ASOIAF/GoT is discussed: w.org, reddit, wic.net, the new WotW, facebook, other forums — hell, even youtube’s talking about it. I don’t think it’s an overreaction to find it extremely curious and upsetting that a significant POV character seems to have been eliminated altogether.
Now, it’s possible that the role has been offered to a particular actress and the contract negotiations are still going on — last year we were getting casting announcements through September — but the description of Trystane as Doran’s heir does not lead one to think that possibility is especially probable. If there’s a later announcement, then there will be, and we can relax — but until then or until some PTB says otherwise, we can only work with the information we’ve got.

I need to have as much wild sex as possible so one day I can become an inappropriate old lady that blurts out things like “when I was your age I got a concussion after being bent over a desk” and then my family can be like “grandma please, you’re making easter dinner really uncomfortable” and it’ll be great

'God's attributes are three: omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence.There are three great divisions completing time—past, present, and future. Three persons, in grammar, express and include all the relationships of mankind. Thought, word, and deed, complete the sum of human capability. Three degrees of comparison complete our knowledge of qualities…Three denotes divine perfection.’ (x)
