GOT rec: They Will Crown You, They Will Take Your Legs by [personal profile] netgirl_y2k.

This is 2k of Dany/Doreah, which I found because the author posted a commentary on it and author commentaries are like crack (Filling like meta! Tasty like fic!).

It's amazing for being very emotionally complicated in a very short fic, and for exactly hitting the notes of Dany complexity that I like and that I am on tenderhooks hoping the show does well enough. Doreah's enslavement just permeates the fic, and one of the best complex/interesting/infuriating things about Dany is that she does not understand slavery as well as she thinks she does; that she has co-opted that narrative as her own, and does not actually see slaves clearly as people or slavery clearly as an institution because she has made it All About Her. Which is interesting, and the books did it well.

If you read George RR Martin's Game of Thrones, or if you watched the first episode of the miniseries, or if you have even contemplated doing either one, [personal profile] hth's meta is absolutely non-optional required reading. It's long but articulate and amazing, and includes an explanation of the consistent ethical stance and worldview of the series, meta on the characters of Drogo, Daenerys, and Cersei, the society of Westeros vs. the Dothraki, issues of institutionalized rape and consent, and (obviously), That Scene.

It's really really good.

Linkspam appreciates George R R Martin )

Borgias, which you should watch )

Question for fandom at large: You will soon be providing me massive amounts of kinky intense conflicted unbearably loyal fucked up Cesare/Michelotto porn, right? I can't be the only one wanting this.
