GABI, thank you so much!!!!!!! I am so so very happy to have you as my friend!! You’re one of the few people on this who feels so genuine to me, and as a result I always feel comfortable around you. I love how you just like what you like, regardless of what everyone else is saying, and how you love villains but refuse to apologize for them. You’re also such a fun person! Your enthusiasm is contagious; I usually smile when I see you pop up on my dash because you are so wonderful to have around! Thank you for being my friend!!! <3

Hepburn did not waste time holding on to youth. ”She was always a little bit surprised by the efforts women made to look young,” remembers [her son] Luca. ”She was actually very happy about growing older because it meant more time for herself, more time for her family, and separation from the frenzy of youth and beauty that is Hollywood.” (Audrey’s Dolce Vita - Vanity Fair 2013.)
|lavender-and-creme: I just had a thought, while everything is going on right now with House Lannister who is watching over the Westerlands?|
AFAIK, Damion Lannister is managing things at Casterly Rock rn? And Daven Lannister is Warden of the West. I think power is spread out among various Lannister cousins right now, but unfortunately GRRM hasn’t shown us Casterly Rock/the Westerlands yet, so I couldn’t give you anything beyond that except headcanon. I’m sorry! :(
*sits quietly and waits for rebellion against House Lannister in the Westerlands*
I know you’re a huge Joanna fan, so what do you think her and Tywin would have been like as king and queen of Westeros if she had survived childbirth, and Tywin had become king instead of Robert, because Jaime was technically on the throne first, not that wanted it?
I actually once saw an AU graphic where Tywin and Joanna became the king and queen of Westeros after Robert’s Rebellion. (Unfortunately it was never expanded upon.)
Most people I know of say that Tywin would have been a good, effective king, and I tend to agree. But my answer is significantly more complicated than that. Long answer about Tywin, Westerosi rule, and the politics of Robert’s Rebellion under the read-more.

Wicked is structured like a queer 1950s Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. It follows many narratological and musical conventions of the “golden age musical” but places two women as the central couple. Like the heterosexual couples of mid-twentieth-century musicals, Glinda and Elphaba begin as enemies and competitors, as opposites in voice and temperament. Constructed as a butch- femme couple, they eventually merge vocally through the show’s numerous duets. By the end, they express their love for one another and promise eternal commitment in “For Good,” as they sing, “Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better? Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” In this duet, they cross voice parts: Glinda sings alto, Elphaba sings soprano, and they finish the song together on middle C. Wicked’s very project is double divadom.
