my favorite part was loras’ sick burn towards jaime and kudos to them for not going with the obvious “lol loras u r gay u can’t make baby” in that conversation, but they don’t deserve any credit at all ever for how they handle gay characters fuck off.
I mean… the only two queers left on this show (minus ellaria), loras and oberyn made fuck me eyes at each other despite their families hating each other in a bad way because lol gay people are all hungry for the dik no matter what haaaaa here let’s watch renly wave his ass around while humping on the westerosi version of a blow up doll tyrell.
cool. fun. the writers all deserve seats in melisandre’s hell.
At this rate I really hope they just kill Loras off so I don’t have to see him being butchered and humiliated on the show.
But I did love that burn between him and Jamie. It was a flash of the Loras I know and love, and never get to see.
I don’t have my table number yet, but I will be signing most of the weekend. I’ll have a few trades and a few Pretty Deadly tshirts to sell, but only as many as I can fit in my suitcase, so find me early if you’ve got your heart set on one. (You can always buy PD shirts here.)
