At the beginning of A Game of Thrones, Sansa is a young, lovelorn girl fawning over Prince Joffrey. She believes in the social contract. Moreover, she wants to be a princess. As the narrative progresses, she finds her dreams dashed by increasingly horrifying circumstance and becomes trapped in a system she must learn to manipulate quickly in order to survive.
However, despite Sansa starting from a place of such naiveté and immaturity giving her room to grow into one of the more interesting characters in the series, she more often is shit on, because teenage girls with teenage girl-emotions are for shitting on. God forbid young girl characters start from a place of immaturity (in this case, falling in love with the first guy she sees) and then growing from there. Oh, no, they must spring forth from the thigh of Zeus, fully formed Strong Independent Women, guns blazing and kung fu fighting!"
GUYS LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE DROPPED TO 2.64 MILLION. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. THE CHANCES OF SEASON 3 ARE GETTING DIMMER, AT LEAST ON NBC. DO WHAT YOU CAN. GET MORE VIEWERS. IF YOU MISS AN EPISODE GO TO NBC.COM OR HULU. PLEASE.
Guys, this is SO BAD.The premier episode started with 3.27 million viewers. This means that Hannibal’s ratings has dropped by .81 MILLION VIEWERS. To put this in perspective, Blue Bloods, a very popular show that has the same air slot as Hannibal, averages 11.87 million viewers per episode!
The first season of Hannibal averaged around 4.36 million viewers and it was almost cancelled because of it. Imagine what’s going to happen if 2.64 million becomes the norm; Hannibal will be cancelled.
Hannibal has an amazing cast and we all love seeing their tweets and involvement with tumblr. This is because they’re funny, kind, and care about the fans. However, they are also doing this because they are desperate to get more viewers. They know that the internet is a powerful tool, and they’re reaching out to as many people as they can.
Even if you don’t watch Hannibal, YOU CAN HELP. As stated in the original post, you can go onto Hulu and watch it. But you can also go to to NBC’s website, where you can find »»>FULL EPISODES«« without any kind of subscription.
The best part is that you don’t even have to watch the episodes! If Hannibal isn’t your cup of tea, all you have to do is mute it, hit play, minimize the window, and go about you business.
For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE SAVE OUR SHOW. You’ve seen how passionate we are about this masterpiece on tumblr. We’re invested in these characters, their stories, and everyone involved.
Please. This is huge for the fans who have read the books and for those who haven’t. Just go to the website.
I can’t deal without this.
signal boost. if you are a big blog with thousands of followers please reblog to help out

EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
To understand SCA 5, we have to remember what Prop. 209 is. In November 1996, Proposition 209 (also known as the California Civil Rights Initiative) amended the state constitution to prohibit state government institutions from discriminating against, or granting preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment , public education, or public contracting. In the 18 years that Prop 209 has been in effect, California has become the most diversified state in the US.
State Senator Ed Hernandez, the one who introduced this bill, claims that due to Prop 209, Non-Asians have a harder time being admitted into state universities.
This bill will ALLOW THE STATE to use RACE, SEX, COLOR, ETHNICITY, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN as a consideration for accepting students or hiring employees. SCA-5 is out to punish Asian-Americans simply because we set the bar too high for getting into schools with high exam scores.
Asian-Americans often need test scores hundreds of points higher than applicants from other ethnic groups to have an equal chance of admission.
This bill goes against EQUAL PROTECTION, our 14th Amendment, as American citizens!
IF WE ALLOW THIS BILL TO PASS. WE HAVE STUNTED GENERATIONS FROM GROWING AND EXPANDING THEIR MINDS, THEIR HORIZONS OF UNDERSTANDING.
IF WE ALLOW THIS BULLSHIT BILL TO PASS, WHO’S NEXT UNTIL THE LAST RACE WHOM IS DEEMED “WORTHY” OF EDUCATION IS LEFT STANDING?!
Xudong Sun, president of American Anhui Association of Scholars and Students, told Xinhua that this legislation is racial and is a serious discrimination against Asian Americans.
He said right now at the University of California and state universities, Asian students account for 36 percent, but Bill SCA-5 would restrict Asians to 13 percent.
He said under-represented minority groups, like African Americans and Hispanics need protection, but such protection should not be made at the expense of Asian Americans.
Here is the Whitehouse.gov petition: WE NEED 100,000 SIGNATURES BY MARCH 18TH. THAT’S 10 DAYS FROM NOW.
Here is the Change.org petition.
PLEASE SIGN THESE TWO TO GET THIS BILL TORN TO SHREDS! and PLEASE. SPREAD THE WORD.
Dont read “especially if you’re asian” read if you’re a person
They need a lot more signatures so sign ASAP!!
I’ve been kind of fascinated by portraits of European ladies for a while after making that Elsa picture, so somehow I ended up painting two more members of the Disney monarchy, barely resembling their original selves. I did a bit more research for these, though I’m far more satisfied with the plainer (and later drawn) Belle one than Ariel.
