You can learn to enjoy your sensuality in each and every moment. Right now, listening to music, let the music vibrate the pores of your skin. Washing dishes, let the suds bathe your hands. Walking the dog, learn to enjoy being pulled. Every day there are hundreds of things you can enjoy. You can enjoy the leisureliness of a stroll, or the sweat of jogging, or the tang of a breeze. Every moment can be an experience that lets you grow in sensuality. Right now you can feel this paper, this book, this space, the sounds around you, even your own breathing. Being open to all that and with all that will gradually turn you on to life more and more.
Paula Gunn Allen, from He Na Tye Woman  (via petrichour)

“Make them stop,” she commanded Ser Jorah. “Khaleesi?” The knight sounded perplexed. “You heard my words,” she said. “Stop them.” She spoke to her khas in the harsh accents of Dothraki. “Jhogo, Quaro, you will aid Ser Jorah. I want no rape.” The warriors exchanged a baffled look. Jorah Mormont spurred his horse closer. “Princess,” he said, “you have a gentle heart, but you do not understand. This is how it has always been. Those men have shed blood for the khal. Now they claim their reward.” (…) “I will not have her harmed,” Dany said. “I claim her. Do as I command you, or Khal Drogo will know the reason why.”

Pain is easy to portray but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one has ever done it before, perhaps no one will ever will again…

I think it’s - as with anything, you’re only as good as the person you’re working with and Gwendoline is a very good actress. She understands the character so well and she plays her just perfectly…
There’s almost a sense of betrayal with Jaime then, still wanting to be with his sister. Couldn’t he just be with Brienne for god’s sake? But, he can’t and that’s very unfortunate, because it would have been beautiful.
