Sansa Stark meme: 1/10 scenes
“Sansa!” The boyish shout rang across the yard; Joffrey had seen her. “Sansa, here!”
He calls me as if he were calling a dog, she thought.
what I really love about this scene is that Sansa is trying to emotionally manipulate Joffrey into going to the most dangerous area of the fight. Don’t tell me she’s just a passive player, she picks her battles where she can and this is her shining moment of defiance.
Congratulations Raleigh on making the best first impression possible. So many movies the male character meets the female character through some misunderstanding or she hates him to begin with because she doesn’t “get” him. Raleigh is a perfect gentleman from the first second. HE SPEAKS JAPANESE. Like somewhere along the line he learned Japanese well enough to converse in it (and he’s already said that he and Yancy weren’t really good students, so this boy put some effort into this at some point). And he lets her know that he can keep up with her, but without really embarrassing her. His better or worse comment is disarming and his expression is completely charmed that he caught her judging him. So she’s already modifying her opinion of him by the second to last gif (and he succeeded in making her smile). And rather than laugh and swagger off, he gives her a very respectful nod, an acknowledgement of her culture rather than his. Everything about Raleigh focuses on Mako rather than himself.
"The image of [Mako]…with a red shoe in her hand is a capsule of who she is—how she was birthed by this tragedy.”

“You talked to one of my lieutenants. He has, over the years, played the role repeatedly and with great conviction. More often than not, he’s done so to protect my identity. Other times, it was because I suspected a potential client might.. struggle with my gender. As if men had a monopoly on murder.”
#let me explain to you how genius the deconstruction of Irene Adler is #because in making her a conscious manipulation; an artful and purposeful creation by moriarty in order to ensnare sherlock #they have destroyed The Woman; the one individual who eclipsed the whole of her sex and at whose feet Sherlock fell #they’ve taken the goddess down off her pillar and revealed the woman in the fridge was a doll all along #Irene Adler is only a story; can only ever be a story; because there is no Woman #only women #and they are villains as well as heroines and they are clever even when they make mistakes and they can hold the world together #whether to take advantage of it or to save it for the people they love #but there is no Woman #there never could be #and Sherlock had to learn that #elementary #the best goddamn show (via notbecauseofvictories)
#up until this point I had been like BUT LIKE IN THE FIRST TWENTY SECONDS OF THE SHOW #THEY SHOWED HER HAVING SEX WITH A GIRL #THEN A GUY #YAY SHE’S BISEXUAL #but I don’t think they’ve ever used the word bisexual on this show #lesbians all the way even though at least two are actually bi #(well you know they don’t label themselves anything but they have relationships with people of both genders) #anyway when this line finally showed up I was like OH THANK GOD #WE’RE ACKNOWLEDGING THE SPECTRUM #I love lesbians in my stories but let’s not pretend that’s the only non-straight sexuality
