the thing abt d&d writing off arianne and thus dorne’s status as the only house that doesn’t follow male primogeniture, besides the obvious underlying sexism, is that the dornish belief in women’s right to inherit is much of the reason they’ve secretly been supporting daenerys the entire time, and is thus yet another example of the got showrunners preferring to invent narratives of heroic dudes over having their plot making any sense
Cristina looked after Emma, her hand going to the pendant at her own throat. It was silver, in the shape of a circle with a rose inside it. The rose was wrapped around with thorny briars. Words were written in Latin on the back: she didn’t need to look at them to know them. She’d known them all her life. Blessed be the Angel my strength who teaches my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. The rose for Rosales, the words for Raziel, the Angel who had created the Shadowhunters a thousand years ago. Cristina had always thought Emma fought for her parabatai and for revenge, while she fought for family and faith. But maybe it was all the same thing: maybe it was all love, in the end.
