Neither do manuscripts, if you get my meaning. :)

Figure skating is so cool… I almost broke a leg doing it, so - trauma for life. Lucky we don’t get much ice here, perhaps. Can you actually do it? There’s plenty of ice in Europe!

Ah, no, I can’t even skate properly, let alone do actual figure-skating… I just watch it when I can.

For unpopular opinions, all odd numbers you haven't done?

Whoa. Lemme see…

1. A selection of television programs you do not care for.
The kind of reality shows like Big Brother. Talkshows. Sport events (except figure skating).

5. A habit you find disgusting.
Smoking in crowded public places. Obnoxiously snogging in public.

7. Your favorite household chore.
Washing up the floor. It’s oddly satisfying.

9. PC or MAC?
I never used a MAC so I have no basis of comparison…

13. . Musical artists you love but have gotten shit for liking.
My dad and brother either laugh or mock-throw-up whenever they hear any kind of musical, but they hate Webber the most. Both my siblings hate anything metal.

17. . The household chore that makes you want to shoot your own face off.
Cooking. My goal in life is to earn enough money to afford takeaway every day.

3,4,11,12,15,19 for the unpopular opinions

3. A selection of celebrities you couldn’t care less about
Anyone who came from ‘reality shows’. I never watched any and never bothered to keep up with the participants.

4. A hobby you “don’t get”.
Jogging. My dad loves it and I tried it, I really did, but… nahh.

11. A sport you really like, for whatever reason.
Figure skating. My dad never fails to laugh at me for it.

12. Television programs you love but have gotten shit for liking.
…the bloody X-factor. Even I know it’s shit…

15. A habit you have that other people bug you over.
Getting lost in my mind and forgetting to close my eyes, which results in me saring creepily, unblinkingly off into space. Periodical huffing through my nose. Cracking my joints.

19. A celebrity crush that maybe even you don’t understand.
For a given definition of crush… Maybe Benedict Cumberbatch. I know, I know…

aro Benedick and aro/ace Beatrice who are sick of people being smug about how they're totally going to fall in love with someone someday and just go fuck it and get married so people will stop talking about it and then happily snipe at each other for the rest of their lives

Semi-regular Ice and Fire log:

Stannis without Melisandre: sort of a very grumpy Enjolras or Javert…

Stannis with Melisandre: I don’t know where the story goes from here but I wouldn’t be surprised if he turned out to be like Shakespeare’s Macbeth after all…

Stannis with and without Melisandre is the same person.

End of story.

Faulty wording on my part then. Yes, he always had it in him to turn dark, I won’t deny that. Just like the two examples in my first sentence, those two just had, well, different influences.

Melisandre did nothing to change his actual personality, just maybe the way/place he’ll end up when all’s said and done. She’s a means to an end, she was there, he took the chance.

It was his own choice that left him in the state he is right now (I’m still in the second book and it seems he’s starting to fall apart…). Alliance with her lead to choices and actions that don’t sit well with his coinscience and I don’t think he’s going to survive the books without going mad. But he chose this, so there’s that.

(And Javert was a bad example because he also dies with his mind in pieces, so scratch that.)

(Also, as I said, I’m only in the second book, so I’m merely speculating.)

Kira Nerys from DS9. She's really cool and a good warrior, has all kinds of interests and fights in revolutions.

Quick trip to Google and… wow, thanks! :)
