Do you think the events of ADWD are supposed to invalidate the idea of Daenerys as a white savior? Personally, I never saw her as one until watching the show because I think a) her wanting to end slavery is a justified (if naive) hope and b) HBO seems more interested in straightforwardly presenting her story as "timid girl becomes powerful ruler through hotness, badassery, and dragons" instead of the more complex and somewhat morally dubious version from the books.


GRRM used to be very vocal with his displeasure about the Iraq war in particular so a lot of fans theorized that the Meereen situation was commentary on that. Adam Pasick at Vulture/NyMag interviewed Martin in 2011, and asked him “do you think about these parallels — colonialism, the “white man’s burden” — when you’re writing?”

Martin replied: “I’ve said many times I don’t like thinly disguised allegory, but certain scenes do resonate over time. Other people have made the argument, which is more more contemporary, that it might have resonances with our current misadventures in Afghanistan and Iraq. I’m aware of the parallels, but I’m not trying to slap a coat of paint on the Iraq War and call it fantasy.”

When we discussed this on FPC (If it isn’t on one of the older podcasts we may have edited it out) we also talked about how these kinds of stories are received depending on if you are from a culture that does a lot of colonizing or a culture that has experienced a lot of colonization. I feel like from a white American perspective, a story critiquing the “white savior” trope is often received as edifying, insightful, self-aware critique. When you’re a person from a culture that has been repeatedly colonized, though, the reaction can fall more along the lines of, “not this overtrodden, colonizing, crap all over again just so you can go on a journey of self discovery because you didn’t do it before.”

I think that goes back to what we have said on the podcast repeatedly, which is that you can’t use ____ to teach a very important lesson about ____ oppression. If you want to critique ____, do it from the perspective of the people who have to put up with it, not the confused and “guilty” people who are perpetrating and benefitting from it.

Do not argue with me; Robb Stark truly was the sexiest man in Westeros.

Game of Thrones AU: Intelligence Agency

Director M, infamous for perfecting the art of manipulation and espionage, disenfranchises herself and establishes her own agency. The Stark sisters are recruited after the massacre of their family, both possessing valuable talents. Sansa, gifted with diplomatic skill, is able to elicit secrets and intel with very little effort. Arya channels her desire for revenge into her work, making her one of the most violent assassins in the world, practising for the people who killed her parents.
