Game of Thrones
I like this character a lot, even when the series starts, because she begins as a normal teenage girl, raised in a loving family. Yes she might be a little too blinded by Joffrey’s good looks, but she’s a good natured girl, who cares deeply about her family, and her dog. I could relate to the relationship that she has with Arya, two very different people who don’t agree very often, but love each other nevertheless because they are from the same family.
She has a core of steel, enduring the death of her father, and the many humiliations that Joffrey and the rest of the Lannisters impose on her, with a calm exterior. The scene in which Joffrey tells his sergeant at arms to physically abuse her, is horrific, but Turner’s performance turns Sansa from a confused teenager, to a woman whose deportment and manner could be that of someone twice her age, clip uploaded by dfective11.
I like the connection that Sansa has with Margery, Turner and Dormer playing the two as attempting to be genuine friends, taking a little solace in each other’s company in the midst of the oppressive court. clip uploaded by Tormund Giantsbane
The progression of Sansa during the seasons, seems to be organic, and I am looking forward to seeing how much stronger she can become in season six.
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
