i hate that you have to put a disclaimer on every lil thing u say on this site to avoid people jumping on ur ass. u can make the most innocent post ever like “i hate spiders” but then in the tags u have to be like “#i don’t hate all spiders! #not all spiders are bad! #i acknowledge how important spiders’ contribution to the ecosystem is! #i just hate when i find them in my bed! #sorry!” if u don’t want a brigade of ppl reblogging ur post and telling u why you’re a bad person/have people privilege over spiders that u need to recognize.

no one told avril lavigne that scene ended in like 2009 :( someone should’ve told her :(




<3


My darlings are eating together! A first in this household. No hissing since I’ve been home. It’s an Easter miracle!

Anyone who has me on FB/Twitter knows just how angry and frustrated with last night’s Game of Throne’s episode. I literally have 3/4 FB comment threads I am actively talking on about the rape situation and I just want to clarify why it pissed me off so much:

Jaime is my favourite character by far. One of the greyest characters of ASOIAF, Jaime is extremely unlikeable in the first couple of books. The whole twincest thing is irksome and who the hell throws a boy off a tower? Add his extreme arrogance to the mix and he’s easily dismissed as a dickhead. 

…Until you get to know him through his POV chapters and realise everything he does is for Cersei. It’s still a bit iffy but you understand that he’s not the baddie you assumed he was. His character develops even more once you introduce Brienne  to his story arc and the humbling act of cutting off in his hand. You tell yourself, “This dude has some good qualities. He’s getting better!” and you get excited because you can see it happening right in front of your eyes, people who were total dickheads can change! 

Tada - a successful grey character! Props to GRRM, right? 
Right.

So, the scene with Cersei in the book is unpleasant already, it’s uncomfortable and cringe-worthy. 



So what was the point of changing consensual sex to rape? Not only was it unnecessary but stupid! TV!Jaime and Book!Jaime were pretty much the same person until this scene. WHY RUIN THAT?! 

Jaime, who lives for Cersei, would never do that to her. A man who stopped Brienne from being raped and said (both in the books and the tv show) that if he were a woman he’d rather die than being raped would not turn around and rape the person he loves the most. It doesn’t make sense - no matter how lonely/rejected/dejected/sexually frustrated he was. Maybe it’s something we would have expected from Season 1/2 Jaime but not Season 3 Jaime, not Brienne’s BFF Jaime. He’s grown as a person, why cut him down now? 

Classic Smosby. (No seriously, Season 9 Ted changed back to Season 1 Ted in HIMYM in much the same way.) 

Where does that leave Jaime now? Is his road of redemption cut short or are we going to overlook the fact that he is now a rapist once he does something nice again? I, for one, am never going to sympathise with a rapist. As much as I hate Cersei as a character, I am never going to think she deserved that. 

It was not okay.

My friend Lucie wrote a really good post about it (Bolded bits were bolded by me):

"So everyone is online this morning talking about last night’s scene where Joffrey is laid out in the Great Sept of Baylor and Jamie rapes Cersei. THIS IS NOT CANON, I repeat, THIS IS NOT CANON. Not only is it an unnecessary depiction of sexual violence that I think normalises and glorifies the sexual subjugation of women, it changes everything we thought we knew about two main characters.

The scene in the book was far better in every way (especially character development). The original scene was about two parents grappling with the horror of the death of their son and grieve when neither of them could acknowledge the shape of their grief. Cersei has lost The rape not only was unnecessary, it changed everything we knew about the characters. While fucking your twin on the alter of the Mother is gross, grosser still is how much this changes everything we thought we knew about two main characters.

Book Cersei is cruel and impulsive and not nearly as smart as she thinks. But she also would never take that shit. Anyone who tried that would be dead before they hit the ground. Tonight, Cersei “gets what’s coming to her”. Book Jamie is crucially one of the few honourable men in King’s Landing. Even after Catleyn Stark has been murdered, he honours his oath to her to find and protect her daughters- sworn enemies of the crown. He defends Brienne, even to his disadvantage. He honours his position in the Kings Guard, even after losing a hand. His sense of honour is his defining characteristic, and it flies in the face of everything we knew to this point about him to turn him into a rapist.

In the book, this is the first glimpse we get of Jamie’s pain that he can never acknowledge his children. In the book, this is probably the first time we realise how much Cersei actually loves Jamie. This scene is dramatic and interesting enough without the rape. It’s the beginning of Jamie’s realisation that Cersei is a monster. Tonight, a crucial scene that sets up much of the rest of the show is inexplicably altered to be a cruel, contextless rape. Why?

I guess the bottom line is: Why fix something that ain’t broke? TV!Jaime has now lost the potential to be great in the way Book!Jaime is and if we do ever forgive him, what does that say about us?

He raped Cersei, but that’s okay because Cersei sucks.
Cool.
No. That’s never cool. Ever. 

Also, just in case you wanted to read more about the whole Jaime thing, here’s a really good article about it here

Tuckered out by 10.30

Well, I finally found a Murakami novel that disappointed me. 

It was beautifully written and I powered through but it left a bitter taste in my mouth. 

This is hard to write because I have the utmost respect for Murakami but I really disliked the protagonist.

Spoilers ahead: 

The story is about Hajime, an only child, who feels left out as the rest of his school peers have siblings. He makes friends with another only child named Shimamoto, a girl in his grade who has a limp due to having polio. They have an extremely deep bond until Hajime changes school and loses touch with her. 

He still pines for Shimamoto as he loses touch but starts a relationship in high school with the beautiful Izumi. He ruins her life by sleeping his her cousin and then spends the next eight years kinda doing nothing until he meets his wife Yukio. They have two daughters and he gets a sweet job he loves, owning and managing two jazz bars.

His life is great until Shimamoto comes back. All he wants to do is to be with her. They meet once a week and get to know each other again when she asks a favour from him. She needs a river close to here and he finds one, in a place I can’t remember but somewhere that needs a plane to get there. She asks Hajime to go with him and he does, no questions asked. He lies to Yukio about the trip and tells her he plans to be home after dinner. Yukio doesn’t even bat an eyelid and says that’s fine. 

Shimamoto and Hajime go the river and there she scatters the ashes of her baby, one that she had for only a day. No other information is given. They drive back to the airport but then Shimamoto has this kind of physical meltdown. It seems like they are going to miss the airplane but the plane is delayed and they get home, albeit quite late. Hajime spends all his time replaying what could have happened with Shimamoto if they had missed their flight/had their flight cancelled. 

So basically the rest of the novel is spent him pining for Shimamoto but she disappears for awhile causing him to spiral in this numb depression. He realises that even though he has a good life and loves his wife and daughters, he would give it all away for Shimamoto. 

Shimamoto eventually turns up again to his jazz bar one night and Hajime decides to choose Shimamoto over everything. He rings Yukio and tells her that he is going to go to their vacation house to think things through. Yukio, a little upset, asks if it’s her and he says no.

He takes Shimamoto up and they have an intimate night together. Shimamoto leaves without a trace before Hajime wakes up.

He goes into another depression and Yukio asks about it - she knows that there was someone else that he loved and she wanted to know whether he wants her to leave or not. Hajime, not know what’s up from down, says he doesn’t know. 

He stays in this lull for ages, causing his wife much grief, but ends up pulling himself out when he sees Izumi causing the memory of Shimamoto fades. 

Hajime and Yukio start a new day together. 

Ugh. 

Hajime is a selfish man throughout his life. Always willing to put his desires over the feelings of the people he loves, he goes through his life chasing after one desire after another. 

I get that he has this deep desire for Shimamoto but it just comes off arrogant and stupid. He ruins Izumi’s life and while he seems remorseful, he doesn’t even try to make things better. 

He loves his wife and daughters but he’s willing to give it all up to a girl he used to love when he was 12. I mean, Yukio took him out of his 8 year lull and is extremely accepting of his downfalls but he still puts his lusts over her’s. 

Maybe I lack depth or something but it irks me, that’s not how you treat your loved ones. 

Rating: 2/5 - I loved the writing, beautiful and warm as always, but a really disappointing story.
