I was wondering… What do you make of the fact that Sansa was repulsed by Tyrion on their wedding night? Why do you ship them?(Tyrion’s my absolute fave, but I’ve never gotten the T/S ship) I really want to hear your reasoning.

Okay, so, this got a bit long.

I’ve talked before about how Sansa has some ableist attitudes towards Tyrion, and she is physically repulsed by him (it’s also worth noting that in the books Tyrion has a pretty horrific facial injury), however I also think she’s a great deal less judgmental than most people are when it comes to Tyrion’s appearance. She does make a conscious effort to “find his beauty” on their wedding night, and she is able to see him as a human being in a way that a lot of people in the books don’t, even though she is terrified of him and of being forced to marry him. She pities him and recognizes that he is “as frightened as I am”. She also feels bad for him when she sees how he’s made fun of at their wedding, and feels guilty that her refusal to kneel caused people to laugh at him. She rightly thinks “why should I spare his feelings when no one cares about mine”, but it’s when she turns and sees his face and how humiliated he is that she changes her mind. That says a lot about Sansa’s ability to empathize with someone even though 1) she has every reason to fear him and 2) she was raised in a very ableist society and is only thirteen (!!!) years old.

I also think that given the situation Sansa would be repulsed by the idea of having to marry and have sex with anyone. Again, Sansa is barely a teenager at this point, and has zero sexual or romantic experience, unless you count her sort of vaguely sexual, vaguely threatening interactions with Sandor Clegane. Sansa is a high born lady and she’s been trained for the day when she will be sold into an arranged marriage, but she hasn’t been prepared for the physical aspect at all. Of course she is going to be frightened and repulsed by the idea of being forced to have sex with Tyrion. All the romantic stuff that she was promised is completely stripped away and here she is being forced into marriage by the people who have killed her family and have been holding her prisoner and torturing her physically and mentally. Even by Westerosi standards, this is a hugely abusive situation.

The marriage itself interests me because it’s an example of how both of these people are disadvantaged by society, but in different ways. Tyrion has marginally more agency than Sansa does, but that isn’t saying a whole lot because Sansa has no agency and no choice in the marriage. Tyrion has choices that aren’t really choices, because they’re cloaked in political and familial obligation, his history of abuse by Tywin, and the idea that he would be dead if he didn’t have his family name and everything that comes with that, and that he owes his family for even allowing him to live, therefore Tywin gets to make (exploitative) decisions about his life and he should just sit there and be grateful.

As for shipping, well, my shipping preferences for Sansa and Tyrion are a bit complicated.

Penises are for urinating and supplying sperm for reproduction, doesn't mean we urinate and fuck in public .. why should breast feeding be okay? fucking typical one sided feminist

sktagg23:

Does your penis provide sustenance for another person? No. Can you show your nipples in public if you want to? Yes. Also, breasts are not genitals or sex organs. Only 13 out of 190 cultures world wide consider them to be sexual or even private parts. Don’t even act like this is a feminist thing. This is a babies-have-the-right-to-eat thing.

When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.

She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.

She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.

Girl is 50 years old.

FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.

fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this. 

You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half. 

Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium. 

This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks. 

Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS. 

she kicks ass like a coursing river

with all the force of a great typhoon

With all the strength of a raging fire

I love how Clark Gregg is just standing there like “I’m a boss, but she can kick your arse!” I love it! x’D I want to be Ming-Na Wen when I grow up..

I feel the same sense of disbelief, believe me!  We’ve still got a couple weeks left, but it’s weird to think it’ll be over soon… Thank you so much for dedication and sticking with me on it, I know there have been some big gaps in updates.  You guys all rock for toughing it out!
