"I prefer maritime laws over laws on land. Maritime laws only exist to guarantee safe passage. There are no loopholes or biases to favor more powerful vessels. Every ship is equal, and no one is more powerful than the sea."
What’s the biggest misconception people have about elephants?

"People learn to love their c h a i n s.”
ARE WE REALLY ROMANTICIZING THEON AND BOLTONBASTARDSNOWWHATEVERPERSON
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
I HATE THIS WEBSITE.
Love does not have to be romantic. I didn’t include Theon’s story into the gifset for that sort of relationship at all. Daenerys says those words in regards to the slaves loving their chains/masters, just as Theon does to Ramsay in a more loyal sort of way. Yet obviously the slaves are not romantically in love with them. Just how Sansa has chains from multiple people…she finally learns to use them, and to not be the crying little girl overruled by everyone. Just thought I’d clear that up :)
Also, “People learn to love their chains” is basically a direct description of Stockholm Syndrome — identifying with your captor — which is absolutely what Theon has, evidenced by many scenes, but in particular the scene where Ramsay asks if he loves him and he says “Yes, m’lord.” So it’s pretty clear that this gifset is not about “love” in the coupley, romantic, mutual sort of way, but about the respect that forms between captor and captive, whether under duress or not, and all four characters above have been held captive, including Daenerys, and Jon and Ygritte were both captives of each other, giving those dynamics an interesting twist.
No one is romanticizing anything. If you understood the quote then you would clearly see that, but I guess you didn’t.
