1. You know, of course, the story of the marriage between Njord and Skadi? Skadi was a giantess. Her father was killed. […] The gods conferred and agreed that Skadi could choose a husband among them, but they made one condition: that she chose him by his feet. And Skadi lost no time in choosing the most shapely pair of feet, believing they would naturally belong to Balder, the most handsome of the gods. But they belonged to the God Njord, the lord of seafarers and sea harvests. His skin was old and weathered.

  3. how-much-farther-to-go asked: I’m honestly getting angry at both the show's and the fandom's treatment of Jorah Mormont. While he grows more unstable after Dany exiles him, it's important to remember that he was NEVER on Dany's side just because he was in love with her. He genuinely believed in her cause and destiny to be a great ruler. He wanted to go home. People that call him “Lord Friendzone", even those Fedora-Wearers that take his “side” against Daario are doing him an injustice. The same is being done to Melisandre.

    Last week, I learned that the English language has more euphemisms for death than any other language. I learned that the ancient Greeks had no word for the colour blue and that the Hawain alphabet has only twelve letters. I spent last week hollowing out a little place in my heart and filling it with worry. What does that say about us? Do we really go out of our way to avoid death like that? How did the Greeks describe the sea? Are twelve letters really enough? Does every language have a word for love? Every language should have a word for love. And compassion. And gentleness. And figs and snow and that soft sensitive part on the inside of one’s arm. We should have words for everything so that we don’t feel alone. We need very very very specific words for all of the different kinds of sad and even more specific words for the kinds of happy. What if we were able to talk about everything? I want to tell you how I feel and I want to be precise. Sometimes ‘good’ just isn’t enough and few understand what I mean when I say that I feel ‘like lightening.’
