Only one can chill on the throne, brah.
finally 3 eps till i’m fully caught up with GoT thank gods
I’ve been by your side longer than any of them, Khaleesi. Let me stand for you today as well. You’re my most trusted advisor, my most valued general and my dearest friend. I will not gamble with your life.
Sometimes being a Jorah Mormont fan is the definition of the joy turning to ashes in your mouth. In GoT 4x3, Jorah stans and Dany/Jorah shippers got one of the things we’ve been hoping for when Dany stated that Jorah was her “dearest friend.” Unfortunately, we also got a big increase of friendzone posts in the Jorah tags, and there were already too many.
The really stupid thing about the friendzone meme is that for many Dany/Jorah shippers, their friendship is probably the biggest reason why we ship them. Not because Jorah is entitled to Dany’s love for being her friend, but because they were friends before love ever came into the equation, and friendship like that is the foundation for successful romantic relationships and marriages. How many couples in ASOIAF have that? Do any of the other canon Dany pairings even have that?
Yet the friendzone meme completely devalues friendship, and it perpetuates the false notion that Jorah himself doesn’t care about Dany except to sleep with her. Does he hope that someday her feelings for him will equal his? Absolutely. But does that mean he isn’t fulfilled by the kind of love she does profess to have for him? (I personally believe that Dany’s love for Jorah is more romantic than she realizes, but that’s not the point of this post.)
Book!Dany, like HBO!Dany, expresses her feelings for Jorah in pretty strong language: “You have been a better friend to me than any I have known, a better brother than Viserys ever was. You are the first of my Queensguard, the commander of my army, my most valued counselor, my good right hand. I honor and respect and cherish you…” On the show these lines were boiled down to most trusted adviser, most valued general, my dearest friend, but the show also made the change of having Dany this not only for Jorah’s ears, but in front of her inner circle, her khalasar, the former slaves of Yunkai and Astapor, and eight thousand Unsullied: Jorah Mormont is the single most important person to Daenerys Targaryen.
Jorah is an exile from his native land who shamed his family and whose wife left him because love wasn’t enough for her. He’s the sworn sword of a queen (that’s a vow of celibacy right there.) Don’t try to tell me that Dany’s friendship isn’t equally the most valuable thing in the world to him. Don’t reduce friendship to a joke in a series where that sort of relationship is at a premium.
cries because jon said ten outta ten in video
reminds me of the good old days
After a lot of rain here in FL these baby frogs appeared. They eerily all faced the same direction.
