“People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.”—Sophie Turner, in response to Sansa hate (x)
So, I Found A Place I Want To Move To, But There's The Whole "Put Down A Deposit/Fill Out An Application/NOW!/I Don't Own A Printer/DO IT NOW!/Is Staples Still Open?/WHAT THE FUCK IS A MONEY ORDER?/It's THAT Much Money?/HELP ME JESUS" thing
The dichotomy of feminine Sansa and her tomboy little sister, Arya, coupled with the modern tendency to champion a misunderstanding of feminism in the form of “strong women” only, erroneously causes many readers and viewers to assume that Sansa is somehow in the wrong from the very beginning. They view her through the misconception-colored glasses of “femininity=weakness”, and assume she is weak, soft, and shallow.
Despite the wishes of fanboys everywhere, Sansa Stark is here to stay, and may be one of the most important characters in political-fantasy to date. The young girl, trained in courtesy and domestic arts, began coming of age, gaining political awareness, and fighting for her own survival before many other characters in this series, and has the potential to become the most powerful player of “the game of thrones” in Westeros.
I keep trying to tell people that all the other characters in Game of Thrones are using Sansa like she’s their pawn, but in doing so they’re inadvertently not only teaching her out to outplay them, but they are positioning her to take the entire map of Westeros.
(Not to mention the fact that if you line up GoT with the War of the Roses, she’s a good candidate for Elizabeth of York.)
Back to work. Back to sobriety. Back to stressing about life, love, jobz stuff, and apartment hunting.
YES! I am looking for a new place to live in NYC—a small, cheap place that I can live in all by myself! A place that may actually live only in my fantasies. This year, I’m saying “YES!” to stress, “YES!” to danger, and “YES!” to possibly crippling life-long debt. ONWARDS VOYAGER!
