Game Of Thrones Broke My Heart

A super-fan's thoughts on the finale

Game Of Thrones Broke My Heart

My character by character, in depth analysis of the series finale. I'm so sad and not ready for this legendary show to be over, especially when this was how it wrapped up. Before people try to argue with me and ask me how I expected a happy ending, I didn't expect a happy ending, but I did expect an ending that made sense and put together logically, which I just don't believe this final season was.

Daenerys Targaryen

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/game-thrones-series-finale-daenerys-targaryen-ending-explained-1211976

Okay, fine. This one I might just be salty about because Dany was my favorite. I know that it isn't supposed to be a complete surprise that Dany ended up going crazy. I know there were hints dropped the entire time. But HINTS, not proof, and not any solid evidence. I don't disagree that maybe deep down she was crazy, I just think her progression to becoming to villain was so rushed and not well written. I would've preferred to not have had her become the villain, but if they really wanted to go that route it should've been in more than 3 episodes prior. RIP my love

Jon Snow

https://uproxx.com/tv/jon-killing-daenerys-game-of-thrones-finale-reactions/

So Jon really went for it and killed his lover/ aunt. I can't say it was completely unappreciable after what happened in episode 5. And I also can't say it was completely unjustified considering that Dany probably would've had to kill Sansa and Arya at some point. But I'm still sad the plot line ever took us down this road in the first place.

I also have to add, Jon going back to the Night's Watch makes no sense. There is no reason to have a Night's Watch now??? Jaime killed the Mad King and he still retained his position, but Jon kills the Mad Queen and he's banished??? Grey Worm and the Unsullied were the ones that wanted Jon gone but then they left and they would have no idea whether Jon left or stayed???? He is the TRUE HEIR??? So much sadness to me about what happened with Jon, and I'm really mad about how how the Targaryen heritage ended up meaning very little.

Bran Stark

https://www.vulture.com/2019/05/game-of-thrones-weird-bran-stark.html

This just frustrated me beyond belief. This makes no sense. I hate it. Bran is the most boring character throughout the entire series and was even completely left out of a season because they had nothing to say about his character. I was expecting him to come in and do something epic with his powers, but that never happened. That Tyrion line about Bran having the best story in Westeros is the worst line from the finale. That whole scene did not make any sense to me, and it felt completely made up and just did not logically flow with the rest of the entire series.

Sansa Stark

https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/tv/a27522043/sansa-game-of-thrones-finale-queen-of-the-north/

Honestly, this one I was fine with. I think it was very predictable that Sansa would rule the North, and she did, which like, good for her. I give her credit for playing the Game of Thrones really well, she clearly learned a lot throughout the series and figured out how to manipulate things to get what she wants, just wished she didn't tattle on Jon as quickly as she did. Overall, I am happy for Sansa and I think she will be great Queen in the North.

Arya Stark

https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/tv/a27522194/game-of-thrones-finale-arya-going-west-of-westeros/

In the grand scheme of things, this was also an ending I was okay with. I think it was very "Arya-esque" for her to go off and do her own thing instead of something predictable. I am only sad because I don't think she will ever see Sansa, Jon, or anyone else again, or at least for a while. My personal hope was that she would go to Storm's End with Gendry, but I won't complain about that because that was just my wishful thinking.

Tyrion Lannister

https://www.vulture.com/2019/05/game-of-thrones-finale-tyrion-lannister.html

As I have previously mentioned, the Tyrion scene where he is on trial made no sense to me. I do like Tyrion, but they have been writing him so stupid and unlike his character this season. The jumping to Bran as king just doesn't make sense. I am glad that he gets to redeem himself as Hand of the King for like the tenth time now (JK, 3rd). I think he is a great Hand that has been written out of character for the past season or so.

Drogon

https://www.thrillist.com/entertainment/nation/game-of-thrones-finale-where-is-drogon-jon-snow-iron-throne

This was the only scene of the episode that made me cry. Watching Dragon realize that his mother was dead was just heart breaking. Drogon has lost everyone that he loves, and takes that anger out on the thing responsible, The Iron Throne. Drogon then her body away to Essos, but we never get anything more definitive after that.

Honorable Mention: Jaime and Cersei

https://www.inverse.com/article/55933-game-of-thro...

They weren't really in the finale, but I have feelings to share. I am sad that they ever even had Jaime and Brienne hook up if he was just going to leave, there was no reason to even throw that in. If they really wanted us to believe Jaime was good, they just threw all of his development into a better person out the window (get I, lol). They really had Jaime return to the incestual dirtbag that he was at the beginning.

For Cersei, she was the kind of character you love to hate. One of my favorites for sure. I really wish that her death was more epic. It seemed out of character for her to die without a fight, and to die so sad and desperate. She was such a brilliant character with an anti-climactic end, and it makes me sad we didn't get to experience something crazy with Cersei.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

1784
Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

3148
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
