Anonymous asked: In your Sansa Stark video you said that Sansa is the eldest living Stark and that confused me for a second because I was like no Jon Snow is still alive but then I realized that not everyone is as adamant about Jon counting as one of the Starks as I am.
I only meant from a political standpoint :)
Jon Snow isn’t going to be in line to inherit anything because he’s a bastard. In terms of politics, Sansa is the eldest of the Stark family, which is why she’s being held by the Lannisters and nobody seems to bother about poor Jon.
He counts as a Stark to me too, but unfortunately (or fortunately) for him, he doesn’t to the Lannisters.
Also, as a member of the Nights Watch, he would have had to forfeit any titles and claims.
totalitarian dystopian future lit is like “what if the government got so powerful that all the bad stuff that’s already happening ALSO HAPPENED TO WHITE PEOPLE?”
|The US Government:||We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of|
|The US Government:||If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day|
|The US Government:||And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem|
|The US Government:||In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free|
|The US Government:||If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education|
|The US Government:||Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people|
|The US Government:||And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job|
|The US Government:||The parent who is working 16 hours a day|
In episode 10, there’s a nice, private moment that Ward has with Coulson - they’re in Lola, and I think they’re going to see a Centipede soldier’s sister, and they’re just having a conversation, finally, about their personal lives. Coulson brings up that he had someone in his past, a cellist, and that he had dinners at The Richmond, and that’s something that comes up later - that’s a tool Raina uses to help coerce Coulson to get into the machine in episode 11.
And then in “Seeds,” there’s really nice moment where Skye is standing at the wall of valor, and we hear Coulson’s voice off-camera saying that the world is full of evil, pain, lies and death - and the camera pans and lands on Ward when he says “lies” and “evil.” [x]
