Game of Thrones shows you all the different ways you can wield power: Whether it’s psychological, physical, sexual, dragons. I think we’d all go for the dragons if we were given the choice. But that’s the secret of the writing, that’s why it’s such a compelling show—because it shows how different people are given different weapons, physically and metaphorically, and how they use them.

ten women i have been warned against becoming: ob edition

"The Needy One. I have heard how others spit when they talk about how she gave you everything and you shoved it back down her throat until she choked on it, until she came back crawling and asked you what she did, until her palms and knees were scraped for want of just a little affection - never be this woman, I’m told, because she’s a joke and the joke is that she dared to have more emotion than you did. The truth is, I’m told, the one who cares less in a partnership is the one who wins. I didn’t know this was a competition.” - (inkskinned)

On Season 2’s fan-favorite “holy Tilda Swinton” line: “I wish so badly I could tell you that was ad-libbed. That came out of the brilliant mind of Karen Walton. She was the one who wrote the episode. That was a writer’s line. I wish I could lay claim to that because it’s so great.”

tat said they don’t prank each other on set, but honestly all she needs to do is be dressed up as one clone and act like another and i’m pretty sure that will do the trick

Orphan Black alphabet - B: Beth Childs
She killed herself because the man that she loved turned her whole life into a lie. She knew you didn’t love her, and she couldn’t understand why you wouldn’t leave. And now she figured it out. She trusted you. How could you do that to her?

My mother swore she could feel me kicking weeks before my feet formed
That’s how hard my heart beat - and it still does


if you play the opening wrong, the game is already lost.

Fantasy Map: Rail Transport in Westeros by Michael Tyznik
Not the first Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice of Fire transit map I’ve seen, but definitely the best designed. It was created by Michael Tyznik, who also made this great fantasy map of Columbus (May 2012, 4 stars).
I do detect the influence of my TGV Routes of France map in this work — the general station symbology, the curved routes lines out of King’s Landing and the use of colour coding to define route groups — but Michael has done a fine job of taking things further. His intelligent use of non-standard angles keeps the map nice and compact, but also creates some nice, fun visual shapes. The typeface looks like the superb Source Sans Pro from Adobe, a definite favourite of mine.
(Spoilers below, I guess…)
There is some commentary in the map based on the events of the books and TV series, but it’s limited to some wry notes or labels: ”Please pardon our dust as Harrenhal is restored”, or having most of the stations on the Wall Line shown as being closed, for example. The Twins is also divided into “East” and “West” stations with a walking route between then, a very nice touch. One thing the map does really well is to emphasise the importance of the Kingsroad, the main trunk line of the whole transit system, as it were.
Michael has prints for sale for $40 of both this map and another one that shows the entire known world of the series.
Our rating: Great work: the map looks fabulous and it’s full of fun things for fans of the series. Four stars!
