Weddings have become more perilous than battles, it would seem.

"The good investigator never rules out the possibility that his quarry is a fool."
whenever i watch a show with my family i like to throw in bits of trivia about the writers, actors, original script… that sort of thing
they’re never as awed as they should be tbh
Peter was their friend
He was a Marauder
They trusted him
He wasn’t stupid
STOP DESTROYING THE TRAGEDY OF IT ALL BY MAKING PETER SOME STUPID IDIOT THAT THEY DIDN’T WANT AROUND BECAUSE JAMES AND LILY WOULD NEVER PUT THEIR LIVES AND THE LIFE OF THEIR SON IN THE HANDS OF A BUMBLING IDIOT THAT THEY DIDN’T LIKE AND CONSIDER A DEAR FRIEND
I think the idea with Joffrey’s death was to make it look like an accident — someone’s out celebrating, they haven’t invented the Heimlich maneuver, so when someone gets food caught in his throat, it’s very serious. I based it a little on the death of Eustace, the son of King Stephen of England. Stephen had usurped the crown from his cousin, the empress Maude, and they fought a long civil war and the anarchy and the war would be passed down to second generation, because Maude had a son and Henry and Stephen had a son. But Eustace choked to death at a feast. People are still debating a thousand of years later: Did he choke to death or was he poisoned? Because by removing Eustace, it brought about a peace that ended the English civil war. Eustace’s death was accepted [as accidental], and I think that’s what the murderers here were hoping for — the whole realm will see Joffrey choke to death on a piece of pie or something. But what they didn’t count on, was Cersei’s immediate assumption that this was murder. - George R.R. Martin
This is fascinating to me. It never for a second occurred to me that the poisoner may have been trying to make it look like an accidental death. And if GRRM says “I think” - well, he’s the writer, he knows. Reading this changes my perspective on many things that happen after, as well as certain characters.

”A story like mine should never be told.”
Stravinsky’s rite of spring is about a girl who dances herself to death to appease the Russian god of spring.
When it premiered the crowd got so amped up they opened up a mosh pit in the theater and the night would be forever known as the “riot of spring”
