HEADS UP:

Doug Jones (ex contortionist, now actor) is on the castlist for the film ‘Crimson Peak' out in 2015 (with Tom Hiddleston, Jim Beaver in it etc.), and his part on IMDb currently has no name..guys, that can only mean one thing-

KICK ASS CREEPY CREATURE TIME.

I mean, this guy is the Johnny Depp of mythical creatures, he’s been in everything and is rarely appreciated

“I don’t want people to like her anymore, almost, that sounds really, really bad.I want people to realize that actually she’s not the same anymore. You can’t root for her forever, because she’s not there to be your favorite character. That’s not what she’s there for. She’s real. People go down bad paths and they make bad decisions, but it’s always justified in their head. I want the audience to differentiate that and not just be like, ‘Oh, it’s Arya, we love her.’ Because actually look at what Arya’s doing. She’s being eaten away from the inside out, and she’s not stopping it.” - about Arya

#A GAME OF CHILD ACTORS WHO REALLY KNOW THEIR FUCKING CHARACTERS

I stopped reading the books and never even started with the show, because this is basically everybody in them and it felt less like an enjoyable read than like drowning myself in how bad decisions and the world’s suckiness destroys people.
But I respect the hell out GRRM for writing characters who are that real and difficult, and it’s amazing to watch, even from the sidelines, the show’s actors and actresses bring them to life so honestly.

I apologize if I misread the Tumblr attributions, but re: Brave/Rapunzel, I think you wrote "And of course, the former Romans living and working in Scotland at the time would have no written record of their activities or appearance because no one cared." Please google: Roman soldier letters. The first result I got was from a POC, and was quite cool. Then add "Scotland" to your search. Look for the Vindolanda Letters. Again, I'm sorry if I misattributed that statement to you. Thanks.

OH MY GOD

THERE’S SO MUCH DOCUMENTATION

Incoming mail (tablet 346) is also revealing: ‘I have sent you … pairs of socks from Sattua, two pairs of sandals and two pairs of underpants.’  It was obviously a bit cold for soldiers on the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire.

THE SOCKS ARE STILL THERE:

They wore them with sandals, apparently, before they gave up and went to boots.

I JUST CANNOT…I HAD NO CLUE ABOUT ANY OF THIS.

THEY JUST KEEP FINDING THEM:

40,000+ ROMAN SOLDIERS IN SCOTLAND: WE’RE FREEZING PLEASE SEND MORE SOCKS.

THIS IS THE BEST WRONG I’VE EVER BEEN.
