so I watched Game of Thrones.

First I will say that I really enjoyed it and might be getting into the fandom -- we'll see. The intrigue is delicious, the visuals are stunning, and the characters are all (for the most part) really really interesting and sympathetic. I LOVE THE STARKS. I just love them. There are not enough words for how much I love this family and these kids and their antics. I am really excited to watch this show.

But.

There is an arc that. Well, sexual violence/abuse doesn't trigger me but it makes me very uncomfortable and I know that it would trigger a lot of people. So just so you know. If people are interested in watching this show who plan on skipping such scenes, I'm willing to do a weekly screening and do scene-by-scene trigger warnings (and careful summaries for the triggery scenes). However I definitely understand if you want nothing to do with it. There are a lot of really good reasons for wanting nothing to do with Game of Thrones.

At this point I'm really side-eyeing this show for that arc and how there aren't any characters of colour on the show besides the ones in it and their portrayal is super skeevy.

So basically: I plan on watching it and I really enjoy it but it gets pretty problematic at times so be warned.

Less serious business: I really want to write crossover/fusion with Tony Stark.
