Game of Thrones S03: My Understanding so Far
in valyria we don’t say “i love you” we say “dracarys” which roughly translates to “i am daenerys stormborn of house targaryen of the blood of old valyria and i do in fact speak high valyrian you fucking dipshit AND I’M HERE TO FUCK YOUR SHIT UP WITH FIRE AND BLOOD MOTHERFUCKER” which is really beautiful i think

As a society, we are fascinated by fictional psychopaths. Humankind has an ‘ongoing… fascination with tales of gruesome murders and evil villain. Popular culture abounds with depictions of the mad and the bad; and aberrant psychology has proved a fertile source of such material to the novelist and the reader alike. Perhaps no single disorder holds as much morbid cultural appeal as psychopathy.
There is no question…that readers feel empathy with and sympathy for fictional characters and other aspects of fictional worlds’, yet it is difficult to see how one can empathise and identify with a character who is himself incapable of empathy. If empathy and identification are both the goal and the reward of reading literature, then we are left with a striking ambivalence which needs to be explored.
Being alone comes with a dull ache, doesn’t it?
There’s a lot of life here.
