in the bitter watches of the night

I'm Swift, 27 year old trans guy. This blog is a multi-fandom/personal blog, mostly Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Game of Thrones at the moment, with some other odds and ends thrown in. Expect occasional Brad Dourif, Disney/Pixar, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, or whatever else catches my fancy at the moment.

Formerly loathsomegargoyle. Url was given to someone else, so if you see a loathsomegargoyle that is no longer me.

Be warned I am a newbie learning to make gifs. For my own reference or anyone who might be curious/have requests here are some of the things I want to gif.

“People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.”

For real I am grossly enamored of this little guy and he doesn’t even have a name yet.

Oh my god I have been trying so hard to be good and not buy another light dragon because that’s all I have so far but I just bought my first dragon and you get three guesses whether it’s a light dragon.

But the combination of his colors sounds like it should be so fugly and it probably is to everyone who isn’t me but

Emerald Iridescent
Rose Shimmer
Silver Crackle
