Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 in ten books, with a total of over ten thousand individual lines of verse. A second edition followed in 1674, changed into twelve books (in the manner of the division of Virgil’s Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification.
The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Milton’s purpose, stated in Book I, is to “justify the ways of God to men”. (More +)

They were once Men. Great kings of Men. Then Sauron the Deceiver gave to them Nine Rings of Power. Blinded by their greed, they took them without question. One by one, falling into darkness. They are the Nazgûl. Ringwraiths, neither living nor dead.

i don’t even think i can defend show!sansa to anyone who hasn’t read the books any more. like usually i can give the whole “well in the books it actually happened like this” but now d&d have just taken 99% of sansa’s development and pivotal moments and crucial arcs and just wiped them out or changed them beyond recognition to fit in with their “male audience” bullshit (like having a canonically FOURTEEN year old character “USING HER SEXUALITY” on a middle aged man - who is already being a super fucking creep when it comes to sansa’s sexuality). they’re completely destroying sansa just like they ruined catelyn and ros, not to mention jeyne and val and arianne who never even made it on screen!!!!! but it’s all good as long as petyr’s getting his speeches and tyrion’s getting his beetle scenes right???
