Some BroSan thoughts (possible unpopular opinion)
So anyone who knows me here knows I support BroSan for a BROTP. They know that I was super happy when there were actual, real moments between Bronn and Sandor in the show. I loved those two bits. I really did. But I think I took away something totally different than what D.B. Weiss wanted.
I did not come away from the episode thinking that Sandor and Bronn really are just alike. I have never really thought they were THAT a like. I certainly see some potential parallels and similarities, but at the core of each man, they are fundamentally different, IMO.
Weiss said that underneath it all they’re alike. I beg to differ. Above it all they’re alike. Like Sandor said, they’re both killers. Bronn might have more hobbies and content himself with other things when he’s not killing, but he is a killer. A big difference though, IMO, is that Bronn is far more at peace with this than Sandor is. Perhaps a little too at peace. Bronn seems quite at peace with himself - he’s thoroughly amoral (from what I’ve seen/read). Sandor, OTOH, is not at peace with himself.
Sandor despises himself. He despises what he’s become, what he is, what Gregor and the world made him, what he forged himself into as a way to protect himself. In fact, I think Sandor’s words to Bronn are more out of self-loathing and a bitter resentment of Bronn than him really meaning, ‘Hey, we’re the same.’ Sandor knows, deep down, he isn’t just like Bronn, because he has compunctions. He feels remorse. He isn’t completely amoral. Sandor wants to be more than a killer, more than The Hound. Bronn wants to move up in the world and have a good time.
These are men who, when you look at them you would think, ‘Yeah, they’re a lot a like.’ But they have such different outlooks on life, such different philosophies. Don’t get me wrong, I love the BroSan dynamic, but I love it because they are men in similar positions, seem similar on the outside, yet are such completely different people underneath their status as warriors, as killers.

so. today was fun.
to top off my shitty monday, some reblog on my dash turned up something with “die cis scum” at the end of it. like what the fuck? so i went to that person’s tumblr and sent them an ask saying how i thought it was rude. my exact words were:
yeah, just sayin’, i think it’s super rude and uncool of you to say things like “die cis scum” it’s really generalising and presumptive as if all cis people are anti-trans scum. i find it really, really offensive and non PC. like, i’m sure there’s a point you’re trying to make… but you should maybe rethink saying that and having a whole “die cis scum” tag.
because like. fucking really. >_>
anyway. they replied super catty-like and like, two of their followers called me cis scum in the notes to it. which is absolutely hysterical to me as a. i am OBVIOUSLY, for anyone who knows me well enough, not trans-phobic in the slightest (like fucking really duh), and b. even if not for a, i fucking identify as trans* myself… so uh. yeah?
i’ll repeat that for you now. I AM NOT CISGENDERED.
and like, anyway, i wasn’t even trying to be rude about it. i was actually just like, offended that anyone would say that and shocked when it turned up on my dash. because like. really. calling someone scum and telling them to die based on something they can’t help just as much as i can’t help that i’m trans*. like really?
maybe i just don’t get it? but like. even if it is a “thing” how is that at all effective? like really. the people who don’t care, won’t, and you’ll just offend the ones who do. and like. it was a fucking cis person saying it in the first place. like um. don’t try and represent me with hate like that. it’s not cool and i don’t want any part of it. and like, obviously saying “die cis scum” would be in support of trans* people. but like. no thank you?

That awkward moment when you realize you’re kind of in love with someone who’s over a foot shorter then you.
that awkward moment when someone on the tyrion tag is an ableist wanker.
that awkward moment when you realise you’re kind of in love with someone who is happily married with a child.
that awkward moment when you realise you’re kind of in love with someone who you’ll probably never meet.
that awkward moment when you realise you’re kind of in love with a human being who is gorgeous.
that awkward moment when you imply that height or physical disability deems someone less attractive.
