I don’t usually like it when a girl looks me right in the eye, and this girl does that a lot. But I don’t know what it is about her. When she does it, I don’t mind. I just look right back at her.
I felt for Daenerys. I felt for her situation as a woman. Being in such a male-dominated society, where she was being abused by the men around her - it was that sort of sympathy, I suppose it started off as that. But then as you track her story, the problems that she overcomes and the way that she deals with them with such grace and the way that she deals with them when she has no training. The only thing that she has is herself and her iron will - that’s just a fabulous, incredible side to her character, really. She goes through painful events but she is still this strong, independent woman. And I think that, as a female, is what I really connected with.
i had wings once. they were strong. they were stolen from me. but day by day i’m growing back my feathers.
