Thinking on unusual marriages…
Meetups during the War of the Ninepenny Kings may also be a reason why Hoster Tully wanted his brother Brynden to marry Bethany Redwyne, a rather atypical cross-country match. (Especially when you consider Hoster himself married a Whent, one of his bannermen.)
When I powder my nose, he will powder his guns
And if I try to get close, he is already gone
Don’t know what we’re doing, don’t know what we’ve done
But the fire is coming, so I think we should run
I think we should run, run, run
Modern-AU SanSan on the run because I’m on crack
*flies away into the sunset*
I write a completely private journal on my computer, but I think I may try copying stuff here occasionally for generic posts that don’t really need to be private.
While getting over a cold this past weekend, I had a bit of a memory flashback memory to a very tough cold I had years ago and how I distracted one night by watching some Hercules and Xena with a good friend. I haven’t seen her for years since we live in far off and different cities and lost, but it was both a shock on how fast time goes by and how you can lose track of people.
I don’t remember *exactly* how we met, but we lived in the same residence. One night we ended up playing ping pong and it was pretty fun. She was quite skilled and I was pushed to my limit. I remember joking with her as she won one of the games that she was trying to distract me to win (she was wearing her PJs and her bra/bra straps were showing through). “Rly, you are flirting with me over ping pong?” she said with an arched eyebrow. She was amused, though it wasn’t intentional flirting as I knew she had a bf. We were always friends, and she definitely helped me out as a sounding board when it came to my own relationships.
Anyway that’s all I wanted to initially jot down, but I now remember a bit more. We also shared a taste in good fiction, though I am not sure if she ever got into ASOIAF and I wonder if she has now. It is funny that back before what I even knew what cosplay was, she cosplayed the main female character for the author of Kushiel’s Dart series. I never read that particular series but another friend told me it matched ice and fire in terms of being for adults only.
Another interesting thing is that she was really into asian culture, both Korean and Japanese shows (including anime I believe), long before I got interested in the latter. She watched Korean dramas with her Asian friends and she had at least one international Asian boyfriend. He was a pretty cool guy and part of a band. It is a shame that her (and other friends’) interests in anime did not reflect on me, as I did not get into watching anime properly until years later.
Okay, it takes a special kind of post for me to Tumble it. This is that post.
I don’t know why I do this, but then again TBH I don’t know why I’ve been in this fandom for 10 years considering how miserable it makes me, so I’m probably beyond all reason anyway.
I want to make a post elucidating the nature of the relationship between Cat and Jon (and…
