frankly im annoyed and irritated with the existence of the got fandom when robin hobb’s books exist
women queens women bards women soldiers woman assassins woman puppeteers woman sailors woman candlemakers, grandmothers and aunts and nieces and daughters all working together to save the world
non-binary trans main character love interest
nine books in the main farseer trilogy, four in the rain wilds, another set of books starting up right now
no sexual abuse, only one actual depiction of rape in a nine book series (that is examined and clearly labeled and given every respect by the author), with another two in the following series where two male and female rape victims openly discuss it and compare their experiences and offer support to one another without judgement
queer characters trans characters gay characters asexual characters bi characters
a constant focus on recovery from trauma and ptsd and internal prejudices and upbringing to become better stronger wiser and more capable
a lovely feminist author who adores her fans and specifically said to me personally that she added more non-heteronormative characters because it wasn’t enough to just insinuate that they were not cis and straight, she had to make it as clear as possible otherwise it made them invisible
no horrible awful lurching preening hbo show
SO MANY DRAGONS
I can’t possibly be the only one who likes how Connor jumps five feet into the air to knee someone in the face.
Judging from the way that redcoat literally flies off getting hit by Connor is like having a rocket lift you off from the ground. All that potential energy of 200 pounds of mean muscle converted into one solid knee to the face? Comparable to the power of a Saturn V rocket *nods sagely*
I’m putting my cat on a vegan diet.

No it’s not. a vegan-only diet is actually very healthy for them.
"cats are carnivores. they need to eat meat"
I know. that’s why it’s a vegan-only diet. I feed them only the finest vegans I can find.
I was about to go off on you
Does this lead to Narnia? Or am I think of a different Ornate Furniture?
if you don’t think this is the coolest shit ever then fuck you
This is a marvel of mechanical engineering right here, loooove it! @w@
