I don't actually KNOW what your BE otps are but please educate me!
RICHARD/JIMMY. ALWAYS AND FOREVER. THE BROS THAT SCALP RACISTS TOGETHER WILL ALWAYS BE TOGETHER IN MY HEART. Because they are the only ones who will ever understand a semblance of what the other went through. Because their kinship goes beyond an exchange of goods, whether those goods be currency or liquor or political power. Because even during his extreme downward spiral, Jimmy still saw Richard as his equal. Because Richard loved Jimmy enough to let him go, even though Jimmy was his only link in the world left. Because at the end of the day, they would have fought for each other right down to the last bullet.
In a very much platonic sense, I ship Chalky/Dunn, Gillian/Richard, and Nucky/AR.
I also ship Nelson/Freedom from his repressed childhood, Angela/Happiness/Agency, Gillian/Sound peace of mind, Margaret/Power, the Boardwalk Ladies/Freedom from the misogyny held by the man who created them (still side-eyeing you, Winter. Still side-eyeing you).

Game of Thrones
I’ll go ahead and answer 001, since it wasn’t specified. I’m also going to force myself to only focus on the show, even though I’m almost finished with A Feast For Crows
Favorite character: Choosing a favorite character is super difficult with this series. So I will choose one male and one female character. Male? Stannis Baratheon, duh. Female? Tie between Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark.
Least Favorite Character: This one is super fucking easy! Arya Stark.
5 Favorite Ships (canon or non-canon): Ohhhhh boy.
-Stannis Baratheon/Jon Snow
-Robb Stark/Jon Snow
-Daenerys Targaryen/Jon Snow (he’s the fandom little black dress, okay, he goes with everyone plus PARALELLLLLLLS)
-Renly Baratheon/Loras Tyrell
-Sansa Stark/Freedom/Happiness/Lemon cakes
Character I Find Most Attractive: Not gonna lie, Jason Momoa is a brick shithouse and the only actor on the show that I’d like to smang.
Character I Would Marry: Are you kidding I wouldn’t marry anyone in Westeros they’re all cray and have issues.
Character I Would Be Best Friends With: Sansa. Because Lord knows the girl needs a true friend.
A Random Thought: Out of all the plot twists and prophecies and history, I think the Targaryen bloodline, especially the possibility of Dany representing fire and Jon representing ice, is the most interesting.
An unpopular opinion: Arya is the worst. I’m sorry, I know a lot of people love her, but oh my God, I wish more than anything that Martin would have written a spinoff for her, that way I would never have to force myself through any of her chapters and Arya fans would still be able to read her storyline in peace.
My Canon OTP: Renly/Loras. Mainly because they’re the ONLY canon OTP I ship.
My Non-Canon OTP: TEAM HONORABLE SEXUALLY REPRESSED WARRIOR KINGS FOR THE FUCKING WIN.
Most Badass Character: Probably Syrio Forel in the TV show. Although if we’re talking about the books, then OBERYN MARTELL HOLLA AT THE RED VIPER Y’ALL!!!!!
Paring I Am Not A Fan Of: Sansa/Sandor. I want to say that I don’t understand why this pairing is popular, but unfortunately, I do. And it makes me sad inside.
Character I Feel The Writers Screwed Up: WOW THIS IS ALSO SUPER EASY CATELYN STARK. ALSO ROBB STARK IS RIGHT UP THERE, TOO.
Favorite Friendship: Catelyn/Brienne, without a doubt. Although I actually really like Tyrion/Podrick and also Jon/Samwell, too.
Character I Want To Adopt or Be Adopted By: STANNIS BARATHEON OF COURSE. I WOULD ADOPT HIM AND TELL HIM THAT HE’S MORE THAN GOOD ENOUGH AND THAT HE HAS GOOD QUALITIES TOO AND IT WOULD BE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE I ALSO SUFFER FROM MIDDLE CHILD SYNDROME AND APPRECIATE THAT HE LOVES JUSTICE. AND IF HE ADOPTED ME, I WOULD LAUGH AT ALL HIS JOKES AND HELP DAVOS WITH HIS ‘SAVE THE KING FROM RED LADIES’ MISSION. ALSO IF HE ADOPTED ME I WOULD HAVE TRIED TO TELL HIM THAT KILLING HIS BABY BROTHER WITH A SHADOW BABY IS A POOR LIFE CHOICE.

CHALKY FOR THE LEADER.
At first I had only Arnold in the Leader role, but then I thought about it and was like, “WELL CHALKY WOULD FIT TOO DAMMIT SHIT WHO DO WE CHOOSE?!?!!”
I like Gillian for the evil, (especially given who the Victor/Victim is!), Prophet for Capone and Luciano for the Messiah since Capone *is* the iconic mobster but Charlie did more for it? …but I’m torn with the leader for reasons
At first I had the Commodore slotted into the Evil role, but also thought about this and thought that Gillian may be a better fit (even though I personally don’t find her to be ~evil~ per se). And you’re right, with Jimmy in the Victim role, that would work out really well.
I was torn on Luciano/Capone, so I think it’d be better for someone with more knowledge about them to choose which role they suit best.
And agreed, I am torn as fuq about the Leader. Rothstein fits the role, but so does Chalky and AUGH GOD WHO DO WE CHOOSE?!?!!?

Dude that first answer? GPO to the motherfuckin Y!! I was just thinking about that today. I was wondering if that was a bad thing.
I don’t think about it in terms of whether it’s a bad or good thing anymore; it is just how I operate, nothing more, nothing less. The thing I cherish the most is control; not over other people, but over myself, over how I represent myself, over how others see me. The most important thing to me is showing people that I am in control, that they hold no power over me, that I cannot be broken. I don’t desire for people to love me; I desire for people to respect me because I am unbreakable. This pressing need to appear this way is inspired because at my core, I’m self-destructive. I value and crave control because I know that at any time, and it’s happened before, I could destroy myself.
But. We’re all human, and part of the human condition is expressing emotions. No matter how distasteful I find it to be, I have to release my emotions somehow because bottling my emotions is the one thing that CAN break me. So I write in order to express those emotions, so they don’t fester inside and boil and boil until they become so intense that I self-destruct. Writing is how I balance my intense need for control and my natural inclination for self-destruction, which are always at war with each other.
# petiteberries # wow # more about me than you ever wanted to know # i told y'all i felt oddly open tonight # writing # personal # i am fucked up and i am okay with that
violet, white, orange, red
Violet: What is your favorite thing about your writing?
I like to think that I’m good at making readers feel emotions. Which is hilarious if you think about it, because I’m so anti-feelings in my relationships and day-to-day living. But I guess it’s not so surprising, because writing is how I convey my emotions, since I refuse to appear weak, vulnerable, and open in front of ANYONE and strive to come across as a robot with no emotions.
White: Weirdest thing I’ve ever written
Um. I’ve co-written angel/demon incest before. Does that count? I thought it was pretty cool, but I’m not a great judge at what’s considered weird.
Orange: Who is your greatest literary inspiration, and why?
Virginia Woolf. Because she was brilliant in a time where women weren’t considered so. Because she saw the bitter truth, but wrote about it so beautifully, so tenderly. Because she suffered so intensely and still managed to step outside of her demons to chronicle the female experience in spite of the society that tried to stop her. Because she insisted on showing the world that she mattered.
Red: When and how did you first realize you loved writing?
I wrote my first story when I was seven, but I first realized I loved writing when I was ten, when I realized that I could take myself out of reality and insert myself into a world that I could control. I realized that I could choose to opt out of a world where I was lonely and unseen and into a world that was exciting and made me happy.
Pllleeeease can you reblog your 'why everyone should watch Spartacus' vlog for me?
I love you a lot. This is not a summer thing.
I figured you meant Finn from TVD, but. I HAVE SUMMER FINN HEADCANONS AND FEELS, TOO.
# petiteberries # OH BOY DO I HAVE SUMMER FINN HEADCANONS AND FEELS # stanning for summer finn until the day i fucking die
RICHARD MY BB I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU EVEN THOUGH I’VE BEEN CAUGHT IN THE CLUTCHES OF SPARTACUS
1. He cannot articulate it. Even before he went to war and came back as a ghost, he wouldn’t have had the words to encompass everything Jimmy was to him. He has never felt closer to anyone in his entire life, not even his sister, and he knows that he never will again.
2. It takes every ounce of strength he has not to smash his fists into every mirror he passes.
3. Not only does take a life feel as natural to him as taking a breath, but it excites him. He has lost control over everything aspect of his life, and he cannot control the reactions of disgust when people pass him. But for a brief moment, when he has a gun pointed at someone’s head, he is able to control their fear, and it brings him comfort.
Finn (I’m assuming from TVD)
1. He met Sage when he was a vampire, and the reason he loved her was because she made him forget his nature. That ended up being their undoing.
2. He realized a long time ago that his family would destroy him, and so he slipped away quietly. He had honestly though that Klaus would hunt Elijah first, as the two had always been closer. It was a shock when he realized that he had been Klaus’ first target.
3. He feels bound to Esther because she is the only one who can end the abomination that is his life, but at the same time, he resents her for turning him into a monster.

I KNOW. Just when I think to myself ‘ok I’m done with this shit.’ They hit me in the feelings with something gloriously evil and I CARE.
I watch for Vampire Barbie/Teen Wolf, and I violently hate anything to do with Stefan/Elena/Damon (Stefan/Damon and Stefan/Elena are fine, I just hate that the show revolves around their triangle, which I GET THAT THIS IS THE POINT OF THE SHOW I JUST HATE THE WAY THEY DO IT), but episodes like tonight just make me feel SO MANY FEELS FOR CHARACTERS LIKE JEREMY AND BONNIE, WHO SEEM TO BE THE ONLY ONES WHO SUFFER FOR ELENA’S POOR LIFE CHOICES. AND WHO ARE MADE TO BE THE BAD GUYS WHENEVER THEY DARE QUESTION ELENA’S CHOICE OF DATING SERIAL KILLERS. WHO END UP ALONE WITHOUT NO ONE TO VALIDATE THEM AND ASSURE THEM THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE.
Which is why I like Jamie, and why I liked Matt in this episode. Elena couldn’t be bothered to go after her brother after they lost their only parental figure, but Matt? Matt steps up to the plate, offers his bro a memorial shot, and says nothing while Jeremy cries. Already he is much better at this relationship than his relationships with Elena and Caroline.
I am not shipping Matt/Jeremy I am not shipping Matt/Jeremy I am not shipping Matt/Jeremy.
# petiteberries # oh fuck # i think i'm shipping matt/jeremy # goddamn it # ashley watches the vampire diaries
Please do, my father is obsessed and I’m curious if it’s something more than cursing and bear chests.
LIV IT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN CURSING AND BARE CHESTS. IT IS EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER WANT IN A SHOW. AND I’VE WATCHED A LOT OF SHOWS.
THAT’S IT, VIDEO WILL BE MADE TOMORROW ONCE I HAVE PROPERLY SHOWERED.
