Hi guys, wow! It's been so long that finishing and uploading a video feels foreign. Seriously, nearly 5 months. I've had so much going on in my life lately and I've really started getting my priorities in order (to an extent) but I'm still slowly trying to find that perfect balance between school and everything else, which is why I've been so absent. I hope in the future I won't disappear for that long again :)

And also, I'm about to reach 5,000 subscribers. That is unbelievable to me, and you are the greatest, honestly :')))

* Steph (thelucifersvessel) - I hate you. And I already participated in a collab for your birthday. But still.
* Chris (chucklovaaa) - Your birthday is in February, or some other stupid month, so here. Hey, also, guess what you insolent snot! I've been reading the Game of Thrones books since the beginning of the school year. Well I've read like one page a day or smth but now I'm a couple hundred pages into Storm of Swords. sry but not sry. sry. ALSO FYI, do you know how awkward I felt when the other night I stayed up ALL NIGHT vidding then all of a sudden how you were tweeting you wanted to vid JoH again? Yeah. s2g. Fuck you. Fuck my open windows.
* Michelle (bottledmichelle) - You're honestly the reason I pushed myself to finish this, you're one of the kindest and sweetest girls I've met on here and you deserve something for your birthday. I'm sorry this is so late, you're selfless and you always put others' needs before your own, so.. just. be alive. cuz i luv u

These bitches.. I hate them. They make me want to eat my hand.

I started this a couple of months ago. I originally planned to make this solely "the women of Game of Thrones and how they are affected by men," but then I added in Mirri Maz Duur and so that isn't exactly it anymore.

The women of Game of Thrones are constantly beaten, raped, verbally abused, looked down upon and told they are nothing. They struggle in a patriarchal world where they are the lesser to everyone including themselves. Yet their hope, love, hate, resilience, kindness, intelligence, courage, character, morals and strength prove time after time that they are just as strong if not stronger than their male 'superiors.' They are so fascinatingly complex and while GoT may not be women "friendly," the writing, storylines and true chances given to be their own person is enough for me to see it as one of the most women "friendly" shows in all honesty. These women do not sit on the sidelines or let anything hold them down for too long.

This is one of the reasons I included Cersei at least a little bit - she has made some bad decisions and can be extremely intrusive/cruel, but there are so many moments when you see her kindness come through and for that time you just.. pity her. She is a queen who is in love with her brother, and her husband doesn't even know his "kids" are not his, but in fact his wife's brother's. If that's not complex, I don't know what is.

I think that's it! Thank you guys for watching :)
