This is exhausting.
Servicing all the women in Spain was never an easy job but I believe in you.
@_dirge_: It actually has me interested in the books and comics now (Most likely the comics tbh. Don't have the patience for reading every King book.)
But as someone who went in not having the mythos of the King novelverse in my head, or the expectations that came with it, I liked it. It was a good flick and a one of a kind that doesn't seem to rehash anything most movies do now and yet also plays well off of old story telling styles without making them seem repetitive. For a 95 minute flick it was impressive but also clearly rushed.
I liked the world(s) building of it most, gave me a lot of ideas.
The books are long.
I'll probably wait for it to come to netflix or something.
@_dirge_: Daenerys. She's like the girl in me who wants to be nice and do good to everybody (but I'll also burn your ass, and I love poetic justice so she gets bonus points every time she does something like those instances). And...actually, things are becoming interesting! Still very much cut and dry, so much more than the rest of the show in terms of he being "good" and stuff, but in the scope of the show it's fairly novel. Different, at least.
The turning point (as in the point where she stopped being markedly less interesting than the rest of the show) I think came when she burned the witch alive. Or I guess technically, the turning point was after Drogo died, when she smothered him before the witch died. Before that, I'd kinda zone a little bit on her scenes and...I knew what was going on, but I wasn't really attentive and was mostly waiting for the scene to be over so I could get back to What's Up in Westeros. Then things changed! I guess...killing him, that's the real point where she starts to seek control over her own destiny. And their relationship never totally sat right with me. I came to accept seeing them together, they did cool things and she began to care for him, but I could never really get over the fact he raped her. And then she just went on loving him. I guess for me her smothering him also (in hindsight) represents something more, maybe? Subconsciously, if anything. But after she was no longer tied to him, we get to see her. She's acting as she pleases, doing what she wants, so we get to learn who she is as a person, not just bound to someone else (Drogo) and acting purely as she relates to him.
