friendly reminder that when the actor who played khal drogo met the actress who plays daenerys he shouted “WIFEY!” and tackled her

Also reminder that during one of the sex scenes they were supposed to film, he came on with a sock puppet on his dick and Emilia Clarke was laughing so hard they had to take a ten minute break. 

​My life is
INFINITELY better knowing those tidbits of information

at the Q&A panel I went to with him he said before every sex scene with her he would go “I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY” before getting into character and going at it

these two are everything

I just want my hair to be even longer.

5th Legion Roman Gold Officer’s Ring, 2nd-3rd Century AD

The 5th Macedonian Legion (Legio V Macedonia) was founded in the year 43 BC by Octavian, the later Augustus, and Consul Gaius Vibius Pansa Caetroniasus. It existed in Moesia until the 5th century.  The 5th Legion was one of the original 28 legions raised by Octavian. It is also the longest lived Roman Legion, spanning 680 years from 43 BC to 637 AD.

Moesia was an ancient region and later Roman province situated in the Balkans, along the south bank of the Danube River. It included most from the territory of modern-day Serbia (without Vojvodina) and the northern parts of the Republic of Macedonia, (Moesia Superior), as well Northern Bulgaria and Romanian Dobrudja, (Moesia Inferior).

The ring is a tapered shank with rectangular panel. Nielloed inscription “LEG V MAC” between two swastikas on top.

↳ niflheim

As the Norse realm of ice and cold, Niflheim had two native species: the Niflungar and the Hrímthursar. Being one of the two primordial realms, Niflheim played a large part in the creation of all things when its nine rivers of ice mixed with Muspelheim’s nine rivers of fire and created water. Later, Niflheim became the abode of Loki’s daughter Hel and the afterlife realm for those who did not die an honourable death in battle.
