Yes, it's like a lava lamp.

There were also kings called childeric the idiot and aethlred the unready' too, probs not to their face though.

Aethelred almost certainly was never called that to his face, there's no evidence of the epithet until more than a century after his death. It's mostly an amusing pun too, Athelread means "Well-Advised" and unread in the original Anglo-Saxon means "Ill-advised". Nice council no council.


The transliteration into modern Unready might also be an attempt at the same, one might expect a 12 year old king to be Unready.

Season 8 had so many completely botched callback lines stolen from the good seasons

my favorite is when Melisandre switches up the order of "brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes" to put "blue eyes" last so it matches up with her killing the night king.

Melisandre kind of forgot about how her own prophecy went.

I gotta quote a segment of the books for you nine-gear-crow, that I can't stop thinking about a certain character from a certain video game series whenever I read it.

quote:

I am Daenerys Stormborn, daughter of dragons, bride of dragons, mother of dragons, don't you see? Don't you SEE?

I get why she went bonkers and leveled Kings Landing now. Cersei trampled all over her CRISP WHITE SHEETS.

God, the ending we would have had if Emilia Clarke had channeled some Kate Mulgrew energy and just played Season 8 Dany as absolutely unambiguously bugfuck insane out of spite for D&D demolishing her character with 4 gobsmackingly awful scripts. It really WOULD have been the best season eveah.

Everything is subject to the needs of intelligence, for geniuses like me. If we actually solve problems, people won't need me and people like me, and this is a travesty without end. You have to squeeze the poor so they know their place, and you fucking commies forget that.
