I dreamt of a maid at a feast, with purple serpents in her hair, venom dripping from their fangs.
Sansa Stark Alphabet →A is for Amethysts from Asshai
I loved this scene so much. The actors play off this pairing as flirty and adorable in a way the characters really weren’t in the novels IMO.
That said, when she said the line, “Girls see more blood than boys,” my husband was all confused and like, “What, warrior women, she means?”
So I just looked at him and started listing off, “Blood from their periods every month, maybe blood from sex, blood from childbirth, blood from tending and washing the wounded and dead…That’s been true for most of womankind all through history.”
And he got very, very quiet.I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m reblogging again for the commentary because this little exchange is like a wink to the female audience that I really loved and I guarantee you that any woman who saw this would know exactly what she means. There are a pretty big chunk of men in the world who don’t think that “women’s work” or women’s bodies are worth knowing about. Also I think find it really amusing when he tries to pass off his ignorance with, “you’re different, you’re not like other women” and she immediately shuts that down.

So I ALSO finally got a photo with Kit!!
AND LATER ON HE CAME OUT TO HAVE A SMOKE AND WALKED STRAIGHT OVER TO US, PAST HIS FRIENDS, TO HAVE A CHAT
gods bless Kit Harrington he is such a darling
I think the funniest part is when he came out to smoke the second time, all the (autograph) dealers were looking for him and he was just stood in a corner w his friend plain as day and they didn’t even see him
And then it happened a second time when he was stood in a corner on the road w his friend and I went up to ask him if he knew about any of the Jon Snow theories (he doesn’t, said he avoids them like the plague) and the dealers who were looking for him STILL didn’t see him
Wasn’t until the third time when he walked right past them that they noticed him
Although we are quite proud that we saved him from the harassment of the dealers twice tonight
Kit Harrington’s protectors
Should put that on my CV
When he came over to us we had a nice chat about Great Britain (which he’d just seen) and my friend mentioned we knew one of the actors - Ben Mansfield - who plays Ding-Dong. Then talked about Testament of Youth and just overall chat about how things are going and whether he had a nice evening. So lovely.
…and then he just walked down the road to TigerTiger
The worst club in London
Sansa stirred in her seat. “What sword is that?”
Tyrion’s eyes still stung from the wine. He blinked and looked again. Ser Ilyn’s greatsword was as long and wide as Ice, but it was too silvery-bright; Valyrian steel had a darkness to it, a smokiness in its soul. Sansa clutched his arm. “What has Ser Ilyn done with my father’s sword?”
