-I truly don’t understand the GoT fandom (or at least the portion that I follow on Twitter). Rolling Stone’s cover story with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner dropped, and my TL immediately turned into a whole lot of fighting between Arya and Sansa stans. I don’t get it, especially because the interview is a delight. I love Maisie’s frequent f-bombs (“I thought I wasn’t a feminist if my favorite color was pink. And then I decided that’s fucking stupid”) and the oh-so-casual way Sophie reveals that’s she’s dated girls (“Everyone experiments. It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender”).

Smollett told the press “I have been truthful and consistent on every level since day one.” Fox TV released a statement saying they are “gratified that all charges against him have been dismissed.” Meanwhile Chicago police and the city’s mayor denounced prosecutors for dropping the charges, saying “We have a lot more evidence than we told the media about and we were fully prepared to go to trial. We’re very angry this happened.”
