So, this was an idea that Adam was shocked - SHOCKED - had not been done yet. When it occurred to me, I scoured the Googles to see whether anybody else had done it, but nothing came up. So here I am, sitting on this goldmine idea. In case anybody isn’t getting the reference, this piece is an homage to the classic John Byrne cover to Uncanny X-Men #141 - the start of the Days of Future Past storyline. With the upcoming movie, you’ll probably be seeing this cover more often.
Adam selected Daeni, Tyrion, and Jon for the front because they seem to have the strongest “Plot Armor.” Whatever else might appear to happen to them, I suspect we’ll be seeing them through to the end of the story. Though god knows I could be wrong. That Martin SOB loves toying with our emotions.
Here’s a detail compilation of the headshots from the poster without all the postery effects:

I hate this 8 YEAR 8 YEAR 8 YEAR OLD. People keep forgetting the key word: 8 year old male.
This was in relation to the OP’s opinion in a case of a 16 year old female raping an 8 year old boy.
This is either trolling at it’s worst, or the best example for the need for birth control I’ve ever seen.
I learned how to drink champagne a while ago. But the way I like to drink champagne is I like to make what we call a Montana Cooler, where you buy a case of champagne and you take all the bottles out, and you take all the cardboard out, and you put a garbage bag inside of it, then you put all the bottles back in and then you cover it with ice, and then you wrap it up and you close it. And that will keep it all cold for a weekend and you can drink every single bottle.
And the way I like to drink it in a big pint glass with ice. I fill it with ice and I pour the champagne in it, because champagne can never be too cold. And the problem people have with champagne is they drink it and they crash with it, because the sugar content is so high and you get really dehydrated. But if you can get the ice in it, you can drink it supremely cold and at the same time you’re getting the melting ice, so it’s like a hydration level, and you can stay at this great level for a whole weekend.
You don’t want to crash. You want to keep that buzz, that bling, that smile.

I literally laughed out loud.

They’re a courtesy, not a requirement. I also think a lot of folks act like talking about a subject is a trigger. Real triggers can be ANYTHING. An enclosed space. A familiar smell. A loud noise. For me, it’s those damn perpetual motion machines my rapist collected. You know what isn’t a trigger for a lot of victims? ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SEXUAL ABUSE HAPPENS. It’s not triggering, it’s validating.
No one talks about the horrifying statistics. 1 in 3 girls, 1 in 5 boys, hundreds of thousands of adult victims walking around in the United States in fear of themselves and of others fearing them, too, if they found out. I’ve received thousands of messages from other victims, and not one found my story triggering.
Happy to be courteous about #tw tags when it’s on my mind. But the trigger warning police trying to hide the story I wasn’t given a choice in experiencing every day of my life? Remember which finger I’ve got on the trigger.
Please feel free to be courteous with trigger warning tags as you like. Just don’t expect others to do the same. PTSD sufferers need clinical care, therapy, and support from loved ones, not hashtags.
The world is as horrible as it is magnificent, and only getting better because we shine light into the dark. Put on a pretty cape and face the hard realities if you want anything to change.
(P.S. Thanks for the question. No animosity towards you in this response, TiaT. I’m genuinely always happy to put my thoughts into words when asked.)
