On the drive down last night, “I’m Alive” from Next to Normal came on and I was overwhelmed by Bucky feels. The first half of that song especially fits him SO well that it hurts. “When I appear/it’s not so clear/If I’m a simple spirit/or I’m flesh and blood” and “I’m your wish/your dream come true/and I’m your darkest nightmare too” really stand out.
Oddly enough, the later half of that song really seems to fit Steve and Sam. “Though you made me/you can’t change me/I’m the perfect stranger who knows you too well” and “if you climb on my back/then we both can fly” are just ugh.
Basically it’s an emotionally compromising song
Really doe? Like one of the biggest reasons that Brienne followed Renly was because she was in love with him and he showed her kindness by dancing with her when no one else would. That is why she was a kick ass warrior and was willing to die for him. She was still kick ass in love with Renly. Why is it a stretch for her to fall in love with Jaime when he did much more for her than dancing? He saved her from being raped. He saved her from a bear by putting his body on the line. He told her things he never told another soul. And he’s fucking handsome as all get out too.
It doesn’t make her less kick ass to be in love with him. Just means she’s a human being with human feelings who has fallen in love.
I hate how so many people equate love with femininity and therefore weakness.
Or even more accurately with women who aren’t traditional love interests as not being as bad ass if they are in love or the insistence that this has to be a brotp because she is not traditionally beautiful. Meanwhile people eat up Sandor and Sansa like it going out of style. I’m not saying that as a insult to people who like that pairing. I’m saying that it is interesting that our reactions to the traditional beauty and the beast trope is acceptable when a male is the beast. But if a woman is less than a runway model they are seen as someone unworthy of romantic love.

That movie was pretty intense for two 95-year-olds trying to kill each other.
