“Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not ‘you’. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.” — NASA Lunar Science Institute, We Originated in the Belly of a Star (2012)

Claire Underwood ♠ Season 2


Sansa could sew and dance and sing. She wrote poetry. She knew how to dress. She played the high harp and the bells. Worse, she was beautiful. Sansa had gotten their mother’s fine high cheekbones and the thick auburn hair of the Tullys.

"Rae’s a beautiful person. Not bitchy and broken like me."

"And there’s another thing Chloe’s better at than me, holding it together. She’s so strong in situations where I’d crumble."

Do you mean the understanding is good or bad? Because imho I feel like the got cast is so off at times :/

GOOD! I mostly read interviews with Sophie and Nikolaj since Sansa and Jaime are my favourite characters, and their readings and interpretations of their respective characters are so spot on.

I’ve also seen around tumblr that e.g. Maisie and Lena and Michelle also have this deep understanding for their characters.

However the show has a tendency to butcher the characters and glorify some at the expense of others, which makes it hard for these amazing, intelligent actors to always give interpretations closer to the book, which is a shame.


Don and Peggy define themselves through their work all too often, and if that work is taken away from them or eroded of meaning, they’re stuck in a world where all they can think about is how little meaning life has outside of the meaning you construct for yourself. But even that meaning collapses in the face of despair or sorrow or death. Without work to give them meaning, without each other to bounce off of, what do Don and Peggy have left? Only the knowledge that they, too, will die, and that much of their lives have been hollow attempts to fill that void.
