stannis baratheon spent his life trying to be more noble than his gross brother and his reward was jon arryn trying to send the repulsive sweetrobin to dragonstone to foster
one time stannis baratheon went to a whorehouse to see robert’s baby and was like ‘oh this bastard child is so cute and not covered in grey rotting facial scales like my baby was’
literally the best thing that has ever happened to stannis baratheon was meeting an evil vagina monster
once when he asked robert why he didn’t get to rule storm’s end, robert just looked at him and laughed and laughed and laughed until his face was covered in robert-spit and then they just sort of ate dinner in silence
the only song sung about stannis baratheon is an allegorical ballad about a grumpy lobster with no friends
stannis is often woken in the middle of the night by patchface sliding under the covers to croon a sad sad song into his ear
there is room under the covers because selyse has not slept in stannis’s bed in years
this one time walder frey was desperately looking for a girl to marry off one of his kids to and he looked at shireen and was like ‘noooooope, not good enough’
back when they were young strapping lads, renly got more pussy than stannis did
and the saddest fact of all: stannis baratheon’s only friend is davos seaworth
If you are a girl then you are a boy. If you are a boy then you are a girl. If you are a bastard then you are royalty. If you are royalty then you are a bastard. If you are dead, you are alive. And if you are alive, you won’t be for long.
The greatest and saddest thing about Game of Thrones is that none of it ACTUALLY matters. These people are lying, killing, cheating, stealing, destroying, abandoning, changing and for what? Titles and honors and oaths THEY themselves created. Power no one actually has. Revenge no one actually needs.
They lose so much at their own hands.
This is why every character in these books is beautifully written. This is why they are tragic and good and evil and brilliant.
Because they are their only enemies.
The Iron Throne is not a reward.
It’s a fucking curse.
And I swear the biggest joke of all will be when at the end.
“We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better.”—Chuck Palahniuk, Choke (via leritas)
tumblr when it's 4.30am and i have school the next day:news, excellent conversations, beautiful graphics, an entire fandom simultaneously liveblogging and fangirling, new followers, a million posts a minute, no drama, all of tumblr is in the beginning of those 2 hours during which a joke/meme is funny before someone kills it, everything is puppies and rainbows and unicorn poop
tumblr when i have absolutely nothing to do:unnecessary drama, porn, a dash that moves more slowly than a glacier, no one is online, boring, boring, boring, boring, zzz...
