  1. I agree. I like Aemond. I think the show has portrayed him very favourably so I’m not really sure what the argument is haha. also people are gushing over Daemon cos he’s proper fit. Not everything is so deep he’s done plenty of awful things in show and I’m sure he’ll do plenty more evil things later on. i definitely agree that it seems the show is much more Team Black than Team Green but I don’t think it’s quite so unbalanced as the poster up thread would suggest.
  2. I loved some of the dialogue. I don’t think it was cringe at all.
  3. We have always been meant to burn together. Oof. What a line. loved this episode.
  4. That’s Rhys Ifans!!! I would say it’s likely more of an issue of directing than acting because he’s bloody fantastic and EXCELS at ‘jamming it up’. I think the soft spoken stoic works well because when he finally loses it and shows some of the cracks in his demeanour then it will pack a better punch. But either way I HUGHLY doubt it’s down to a fault with Rhys Ifans - who is FANTASTIC.
  5. I love that though. It’s showing the difference between fantasy and myth and reality. Propaganda and the truth. it makes sense for something like F&B to be steeped in the mythical propaganda of a lot of these characters when I’m reality they’re all messy human beings.
  6. I have no issues with any of the age changes and very much agree with the below. As a visual storytelling medium, you almost need to rely on visual stereotypes and things that will tell a story quicker than reading it in detail. These ages hit different story points and bring out different emotions from us and for me they really work for this story. It makes the characters actions all very believable.
  7. Miserable run today. HORSEFLIES EVERYWHERE. Any tips to repel them please?
  8. Fourth run this week. That’s it for me now I think, taking a couple days off. First week of Couch to 5k completed. Next run scheduled for Saturday and will start the second week!
  9. Well third run this week tonight. I’ve decided to start couch to 5k, I was always embarrassed to before because I used to be a runner for years. But i have no fitness even if I have the annoying muscle memory which makes me think I can do more than I can so I’m starting at the very beginning and actually quite excited to see what happens with something so structured like this.
  10. Just did a 9k run with my mate, my first run in a couple months no idea where I got the energy but I feel chuffed & hope I’ll continue !
  11. I think it is me a little bit and I don’t say that to be self deprecating and or really hard on myself but I do have a tendency to shy away from any intimacy as soon as it vaguely pops up so I don’t do myself any favours. But I also think the internet just doesn’t work for me dating wise, it’s just a problem there’s hardly any age appreciate single guys in my area and all my hobbies and interests are shared by old men LOL. Really lovely chaps but I’m not looking to marry someone 40-50 years my senior
  12. Chatting to someone for months, them seeming really enthusiastic and keen. And then suddenly really lukewarm. Just milquetoast vibes. Travelled basically right where I live multiple times, didn’t make effort to meet up. And now seeing other person on their socials. I’m actually not hugely bothered which probably tells me all I need to know but it does feel a bit of a waste and just highlights to me…my game is garbage. Bloody hell I need to learn how to flirt and be obvious with people cos at the moment this sort of slight interest going nowhere is the story of my life. Also I’m an ugly cow but I can’t help that I at least think I’m pretty funny, smart and fun …quite away with the fairies tho… anyway if you hear of a Flirt Academy anywhere let me know LOL
  13. Im trying not to jinx it too much so not speaking about it massively but am on the same journey I was this time 3 years ago where I became the healthiest I was (briefly) until I completely burnt out on 9 months of 6 day weeks with no holiday and then the pandemic happened… but have lost a stone so far (with quite a bit to go), gained back a lot of fitness I lost when I got covid last July. And slowly and surely trying to work towards something better, more sustainable and healthier. fingers crossed it works this time…
  14. Hahaha I think this about people who will in the future ask if I’ve met the king, if Charles ever makes it LOL, and I’ll have to say yes which will validate them. - anyway, been chatting to this fella on Twitter for awhile who is really friendly and nice but I’m like…why are you chatting to me all the time? I’m gonna have to just come out with it and ask him out soon which is scary but I’m feeling a lot more comfortable with myself lately and he just seems interested and friendly which is really nice.
  15. Im giving a FREE online talk on Cornish myths and legends at the end of April if you fancy listening to me chat about mermaids, giants and piskies!! I’ve posted the link & everything on Twitter @SianEsther just feeling really proud of myself
  16. Feeling simultaneously very hopeful for the future whilst also pretty stressed and frequently miserable about the present. I love where I work, I love the people. The place. The office building itself is horrid though and I think it’s making me sick all the time. the job is 2 jobs, crushed into one, as is the habit in the cultural sector. So workload is always high and I always feel a bit like I’m scrambling and not doing my best for a place I love. but having said that I think I’m making a good name for myself in the local sector, and working on some really rewarding projects and bits of work. being a grownup is weird isn’t it. For the most part, I’m really proud of all the work I’ve put in to get where I am but now have to figure out priorities and money and my own worth. bloody love the sector I work in but it’s also underpaid, overworked and relies a lot on peoples passion for what they’re doing. is what it is though.
  17. I’ve got a video that went viral of him and it still makes me howl with laughter looking at his little face https://vm.tiktok.com/ZML6t4gdp/
  18. My dog looks like a wizard trapped in the body of a tiny brown labradoodle and it’s never going to stop being hilarious to me
  19. It’s taken me weeks to ask tbh! So you’re definitely not alone!
  20. Caved and asked my boss for a 2 week extension on some work and he was like yeah that’s absolutely fine so moral of the story is seek help and be open before you get to mental breakdown stage hehehe???? no really I’ve not been doing too well lately whatsoever and I still don’t know if I’ll get this work done in time but I do feel relieved.
  21. I don’t think I actually deserve it though because I feel awful at my job. I never seem to hit deadlines, all my work seems subpar & not as good as it should be cos I’m so stretched for time, busy & stressed out
  22. Going through a really rough patch recently of feeling really rubbish at my job. I love where I work, in a museum, I love my team. But my role is basically 2 jobs in one and I feel like my brain is being pulled in way too many directions, stretched way too thin and actually for not a massive amount of money. But I don’t feel like asking for more cos I don’t know if I deserve it! Argh. Just is what it is but I needed to vent because I’m starting to go into some dark thoughts about all this which is ridiculous but there we go. My sense of self & validation has become a little too tied up in work and I don’t like that.
  23. OK THIS is the thread I’ll go back and read and join in with soon not the book spoiler one. i know nothing about the books really but I’m enjoying the show. Red headed guy is my least fave and I just know he’s going to end up being the dragon or something. Yawn. But I DO love Nynaeve and interested in his other friends.
  24. I’m gonna check back in properly and read through this whole thread but I just wanted to pop by and say so far I’m quite enjoying this. I’ve never read the books and I don’t know too much about the story at all. Nynaeve is my favourite so far and my least favourite is the boring red head bloke and I just KNOW it in my bones that he’s going to end up being the dragon reborn… Nice to have something to wait weekly for though, I miss having a tv show to discuss like that. Haven’t done that since 1st & 2nd seasons of Westworld!
