Even though I’ve already wikipedia’d pretty much everybody’s story lines at length because I’m super impatient when I can’t get emotionally invested in characters. (My own fault though, because I watched the first episode of the first season, then I didn’t watch until season 3, and only because mi namorado likes the show).
But then the Song of Fire and Ice wikia told me that actually a lot of the characters, ESPECIALLY the women, are WAY WAY younger in the books. Like, Sansa is 13 and Arya is 10 and dragon lady is 16 or something crazy. But pretty much all the men are kind of the same age as they’re depicted in the show.
And it fucking creeps me out to read about all these old men creeping on pre-teen and teen girls. I have enough of that on daily life and the news. And I know it’s supposed to be some sort of magical medieval land or whatever, but no.
The show is also pretty racist - but I know some of the blame falls on HBO, of course. Everybody is white, because people of color just didn’t exist until slavery started, you know? So I don’t think I’ll tackle 1000-page books for stuff I can just read in the news or history books. Not even for the dragons. Not even for all the cool, feminist-ish quotes apparently said by the book author.
My idea of a cocktail drink is condensed milk, a hint of vodka and fruit of choice (strawberry usually). We drink that type of stuff in brazil all the time.
