game of thrones dystopian au → king’s landing
the fires fall on the first day and the city screams. the proletariat crumples under the flame; flea bottom glows and the wood of the brothels becomes kindling for the fire that rains from the sky. in the citadel the aristocracy crumbles under the chaos, the silks of the ladies melt into their skin; the lannister gold becomes the lannister skin; flowers melt into the queen’s hair and the screams from the city below the keep echo in the halls as the lords and ladies cry out.
when the flames dye out the city is not the same. the citizens that survive have wild eyes and their skin is scarred. the city is tempestuous; a playground for the broken bodies of the survivors where law is natural and kill or be killed has never been more true. the court continues; underground with their dragon skeletons, a macabre parody of the bourgeoisie before the doom where their pleasures are carnal and their bodies are wretched.

At least 60 people detained as Istanbul protest spreads to Ankara and Izmir, with tear gas sprayed and many injured.

The Magic Begins | Day 5:
Favourite House/Your House
”Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, there’s no doubt about that.”
What I love about this is the first half - the one about real friends. Friends who’ll do anything for you. Who’ll venture into the depths, into the most terrifying darkness, if it means helping you. Friends who’ll take the blame, who will put up with dishonor and hatred, if it means protecting you. Friends who’ll become their own worst nightmare if it means saving you from yours.
Friends like Severus Snape.
Take heed, everyone.
Slytherin is not the house of traitors.
Slytherin is the house of those who are faithful even unto the end, unto death, ignominy and fear. Slytherin is the house of those who do not shun the ways of darkness if walking them means preserving the light.
The worst inhabitants of Slytherin should not be allowed to outshine the best.
My mom said if this post gets 500,000 notes nothing will happen.
But if this petition gets 500,000 signatures we can get federal laws preventing rapists from suing for custody/visitation of their victim’s children.

How about putting in an effort to Operation We’re Finally Taking Rape Seriously?
Dear fandoms of tumblr,
as some of you might have heard, one of the BBC’s shows, The Hour, has recently been cancelled. That name might not ring a bell for you, but it’s a really, really excellent work of television, work of art, I dare say.
‘But shows get cancelled frequently!’
Very sadly, they do. But this show was cancelled even though it was pretty clear its creators wanted to continue its production. (Why would you end a season with a shocking cliffhanger then?)
The other devastating thing is that one of the show’s key aspects is to bring the people noteworthy television, no matter what it takes. To not let people be dumbed down. And by axing this intelligent, versatile, beautifully done marvel the BBC is doing the exact opposite to what it stands for.
I personally ask for your help, be (in) whatever fandom you are, because ours is a small one. Yes, the BBC made a mistake, they didn’t promote it at all, so even in the UK very few people are familiar with it compared to other well-known programmes. We can’t do anything about that. But what we can do is to express that despite their decision there’s still a demand for the show, there are lots of people who love it and that lots of people want to voice their disappointment over it.
So I’m asking you to please help, even if you don’t know a thing about The Hour, just for the sake of quality television and for the sake of helping each other. Imagine if your favourite show was to be cancelled. We’d help you too.
If you want to know why is it such an amazing show, click here.
But most importantly, please sign this petition made by Alice, the starter of our campaign. And reblog this post to spread the word.
