Anonymous on WWLTL asked: 

In your opinion, if the Lannisters lived today, what would they do? What would their professions and jobs be for example, their hobbies, politics, social stuff etc? :)

The road to becoming the richest family in Europe ( and only number 9 in the world) was not easy for the Lannisters (but the fact that their ancestors struck oil certainly didn’t hurt). Today, Lord Tywin Lannister is the head of Lannister Industries, a multinational company that, beyond the oil business, is involved in, well, everything.

And as the company itself, Tywin has been involved in just as much : after graduating Oxford School of Business summa cum laudae,  Lord Tywin inherited his father’s company, completely destroyed any competition that he might have had, and after serving as a consultant for the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills for many years, Tywin is definitely considered one of the most powerful men in the UK. In fact, he may be as powerful enough to be voted the next Prime Minister.

Jaime Lannister, Tywin’s eldest son, does not like to be in the spotlight, but accepts it as a family curse. In his youth, Jaime served in Afghanistan, and a difficult decision almost ended his life : Jaime had to choose between the order he was given and the safety of his comrades. His father’s influence was the only thing that saved him from  Military Justice. Today, Jaime runs a group destined to protect soldiers who face similar situations, despite his father’s requests to take over the family company. 

Cersei, Jaime’s twin, has always been in charge with the family’s charity work , even though she hates it with a burning passion. She feels that organizing glamorous parties and simply being the feminine side of the Lannisters is not worthy of her Master’s Degree in Business. A degree she felt she wasted the moment she had to marry Robert Baratheon, in order to ensure her father’s biggest merger. Ever since, she hopes that her father’s last will and testament will name her heir to everything the family holds.  Today, tabloids always talk of her spending more time at her family’s house than her husband’s, always in the company of her handsome  brother. 

Tyrion, the youngest of the Lannister siblings, has faced unwanted attention ever since he was a baby, due to the circumstances of his birth. For months, the tabloids raved about the death of Joanna Lannister and the disability of Tywin Lannister’s newborn son. But Tyrion never allowed it to rule his life. Instead, he graduated Oxford School of Business summa cum laude and became the unofficial spokesperson of Lannister Industries, the media loving his witty remarks and always comparing him to his father.  However, his love of drinking, gambling and pretty women always gives Tywin  a reason to threaten his not so beloved son that he will disinherit him. 

For the anon who asked me  :D

Jawaharlal Nehru: 

Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.

It is fitting that at this solemn moment we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.

The light has gone out of our lives and there is darkness everywhere. I do not quite know what to tell you and how to say it. Our beloved leader, Bapu as we called him, the Father of the Nation, is no more. Perhaps I am wrong to say that. Nevertheless, we will never see him again as we have seen him for these many years. We will not run to him for advice and seek solace from him, and that is a terrible blow, not to me only, but to millions and millions in this country. And it is a little difficult to soften the blow by any other advice that I or anyone else can give you.

The light has gone out, I said, and yet I was wrong. For the light that shines in this country is no ordinary light.

Anonymous: do you think girls like Priyanka/Deepika will still act in their 40s or do you think they might just fade out and make occasional appearances?

koffeewithkaranbitches:

I hope they do! But if everything remains as it is now, they’ll fade out. And if things change, they’ll owe a LOT to the women 40 and over paving the way for them by taking all the risks and all the brickbats right now for daring to assert their own desirability in an industry that doesn’t want to accept them.

The thing is, you can’t be young forever. The same way that Julia Roberts can’t keep playing America’s Sweetheart into her 50s, and George Clooney has moved on to playing fatherly roles to young stars, Bollywood stars have to adapt. The problem is that Bollywood seems to only want to tell stories about youth. That’s why you have to Khans, who are almost 50, playing college students. It’s obviously a lot easier for men, but eventually they’ll fade out, too. So it’s all about adapting and finding stories that are age-appropriate but still entertaining. Bollywood has to make space for films that speak to people in all walks of life, not just upper middle class college kids. I know it’s technically more complicated than that, but it CAN be done.

And it is starting to change a bit, with audiences accepting films like The Lunchbox and English Vinglish. I hope the industry continues down that track, because there’s no reason that beautiful and talented women should be pushed out of the industry just because younger girls with smoother skin have come in. I hope they’re around for a long time to come. But I don’t know how quickly things will evolve over the next decade or so. Fingers crossed?

Fucking signal boost this shit

This is one of the most horrific things happening in the world and yet I can’t seem to find out any news about it.

Ambulances are being shot by tanks. Doctors, civilians, children playing on the beach and everyone else are all being killed.
