She had all of her mother’s beauty and none of her nature. Dornish law would always rule in Dorne. And Myrcella is in Dorne. By law the Iron Throne should pass to her.

With six children, she still manages to visit these kinds of countries, traveling lightly, without much security, taking the same bumpy roads and dodgy planes and going through the same military checkpoints as I do when I report from conflict zones. There is no red carpet in Libya or Sudan. She still packs her own flashlights, notebooks, and waterproof gear. She made Blood and Honey with $13 million and a lot of humility. She approached it the way she does her job for UNHCR, like a student.

"When I go on a field mission, I get multiple briefings, including from the CFR [Council on Foreign Relations]," she said. "And I took a course on international law. So I did the same thing I did with missions. I studied."

For the film, she “read a lot of books about the war. I talked to a lot of people, I watched, I listened. I just wanted to tell the real story.” She repeated what she has said several times: “I wanted to be respectful of people.” If she did not know something, “I asked.” — Possessed By War by Janine di Giovanni in Newsweek, Dec 12, 2011 [x]

Maleficium is a Latin term,describing harmful or dangerous sorcery. It is often used in witchcraft and necromancy. This type of magic can involve the act of poisoning or killing somebody.

Something my friend told me the other day (via sinisteria)

dailylilycollins:

“I never thought I’d be doing what I am doing at 25. I feel happy. I’m taking more risks, whether work or with myself. It’s an ‘If not now then when’ vibe and I am definitely trying to be more of a yes person. Because yes is so much more fun than no!”

“If I was bound for hell let it be hell. No more false heavens. No more damned magic. You hate me and I hate you. We’ll see who hates best.”

stop telling me to smile. it wouldn’t be real anyway so what’s even the point of asking. i don’t like lying with my words why would i lie with my teeth? i smile for me and my feelings. my moments. not your guilt.
