Get to know me meme: [2/5] male character » Prince Oberyn Martell
"He knew the man only by reputation, to be sure … but the reputation was fearsome. When he was no more than sixteen, Prince Oberyn had been found abed with the paramour of old Lord Yronwood, a huge man of fierce repute and short temper. A duel ensued, though in view of the prince’s youth and high birth, it was only to first blood. Both men took cuts, and honor was satisfied. Yet Prince Oberyn soon recovered, while Lord Yronwood’s wounds festered and killed him. Afterward men whispered that Oberyn had fought with a poisoned sword, and ever thereafter friends and foes alike called him the Red Viper.That was many years ago, to be sure. The boy of sixteen was a man past forty now, and his legend had grown a deal darker.”
Rollo’s leather armor falls away leaving him bare-chested, eyes bloodshot, muscles twitching. Wolf Fenrir has claimed him. Like Fenrir, he is now too wild to chain; and as Fenrir was destined to kill Odin at Ragnarok, envious Rollo bides his time and circles his brother.
EXCUSE ME BUT THIS RING. NO ONE NOTICED IT?????
Actually I’ve seen people mention it since the first episode.
It’s Capaldi’s wedding ring. He never takes it off, even when acting.
To add to the story, he refuses to take it off because when his acting career was struggling, his wife never gave up on him. When he landed his first major gig, he decided to not take it off, to represent he was there because of his wife’s support.
This is the sweetest and best thing I’ve eve heard about any behind-the-scenes ever
"Gli studenti del collettivo del liceo Manara di Roma hanno affisso a scuola uno striscione in risposta a quelli omofobi organizzati da parte di gruppi di destra al Giulio Cesare che hanno contestato la lettura a scuola del libro sull’amore gay della Mazzucco”, riferisce Gay Center in un comunicato. “Avresti mai dato della checca isterica ad Achille?”, si legge sullo striscione esposto nel liceo di Monteverde. “Quella degli studenti del Manara - spiega in una nota Fabrizio Marrazzo, portavoce di Gay Center - è la risposta più intelligente a chi vuole portare nella scuola la discriminazione e l’omofobia. La loro protesta spontanea è l’esempio positivo di una scuola che combatte i pregiudizi e le discriminazioni” - La Repubblica
