"They’re trapped in here. Terrified. Meat for the beast. And there’s nothing they can do but wait. That’s all they’ve been doing for days, waiting to be picked off, having nightmares about monsters that can’t be killed. But I don’t believe in that. I always find a way. I’m the thing that monsters have nightmares about. And right now you and me are gonna show ‘em why."
The Air Nomads traveled the world, herding their flying bison, but they had four cultural and spiritual centers where the held ceremonies and festivals, and trained the apprentice monks. Being a reclusive, monastic society, the built their Air Temples at high altitudes, in very remote locations.

game of thrones meme: five houses [3/5] → house lannister
one of my favourite fairy tales ever is the one of Vasilisa… it’s about a little girl whose mother, on her deathbed, gives her a doll that comes to life when Vasilisa gives it something to eat and tells it her problems.
Her father remarries for her sake, but when her stepmother is really nice to her father, she’s rotten to Vasilisa and sends her out to find something in the forest that is impossible to find. She is warned by this strange spirit not to come this way, but she does because it’s growing dark and long story short she is abducted by the evil Baba Yaga and if she doesn’t clean her gross cobwebby house, cook massive feasts and other impossible things she will eat her. Her doll however comes to life and helps her out.
Baba Yaga’s hut is “haunted” by all of her past victims and if Vasilisa can defeat her they all go free… but she needs their help, too. One of them, the spirit she saw, tries to help her the most but is cursed not to tell her why he’s there or what his name is.
There’s like, a billion different versions of this tale and I’m sure most of them are online… one thing of note is that I think this is one of the very few european fairy tales that mention specifically the race of one of their characters without making it a ‘thing’. The entire story is very much Spirited Away-meets-Cinderella —while researching for these drawings I really noticed how Spirited Away seems to be a retelling of maybe something similar to that fairy tale, Haku as the spirit who helps her out but isn’t allowed to do much more than that, a little girl from the outside who has to obey a big evil bird-themed witch, lots of different spirits… I wonder if the inspiration for that movie came from this tale?? Who knows??
I should watch it again now…
anyway have some drawings
game of thrones meme: four deaths [1/4]
↳ Lysa (Tully) Arryn
"I’ve always loved you. I’ve proved it, haven’t I?" <…> "I gave you my maiden’s gift. I would have given you a son too, but they murdered him with moon tea, with tansy and mint and wormwood, a spoon of honey and a drop of permyroyal. It wasn’t me, I never knew, I only drank what Father gave me" <…> "It was me who got you your first post, who made Jon bring you to court so we could be close to one another. You promised me you would never forget that." <…> "You told me to put the tears in Jon’s wine, and I did. For Robert, and for us! And I wrote Catelyn and told her the Lannisters had killed my lord husband, just as you said. That was so clever."
"My sweet silly jealous wife," he said, chuckling. "I’ve only loved one woman, I promise you."
Lysa smiled tremulously. “Only one? Oh, Petyr, do you swear it? Only one?”
"Only Cat." He gave her a short, sharp shove.
Lysa stumbled backward, her feet slipping on the wet marble. And then she was gone. She never screamed. For the longest time there was no sound but the wind.
↳ One King/Queen: King Stannis Baratheon
I shall bring justice to Westeros. A thing Ser Axell understands as little as he does war. Claw Isle would gain me naught… and it was evil, just as you said. Celtigar must pay the traitor’s price himself, in his own person. And when I come into my kingdom, he shall. Every man shall reap what he has sown, from the highest lord to the lowest gutter rat. And some will lose more than the tips off their fingers, I promise you. They have made my kingdom bleed, and I do not forget that.
