"I never had an imaginary friend, just imaginary circumstances. I was so into the Indiana Jones movies and I would constantly reenact circumstances. I broke my left arm three times, two of which were me trying to be Indiana Jones. The first time, I tied sheets together and tried to climb the side of my house after I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. The second time, I was riding a horse and trying to gallop as fast as I could, like Indiana Jones, and got thrown from the horse. The third time I was bit older and it didn’t have anything to do with trying to be Indiana Jones" — Pedro Pascal interviewed by Sarah Paulson for Interview
The thing is, he’s supposed to be a joke, but a big part of the story is his development and realizing that he can be more than that. That’s why I think his relationship with Robin is so important; she helps him grow beyond a narcissistic asshole
Except she doesn’t. They get a divorce because Barney can’t change, and then some baby comes into his life by accident and he “magically changes” for her and only her. And we never even learn the name of the mother of the child. She’s simply referred to as “number 31”. I mean, what the hell is that? Barney could’ve changed, but the last episode ruined 9 seasons of character development.
Mariya Martell, the Princess of Dorne, was an old woman during the War of Conquest—called ”The Yellow Toad of Dorne” by Argilac Durrendon, the Storm King. When Aegon Targaryen came with his dragons, Mariya promised the might of Dorne if she would be delivered the fall of the House of Durrendon—sword and steed, bearing the sun and spear of her house—yet she refused to bend the knee. She offered only her allegiance, and no more. The Targaryens wanted absolute surrender. Rhaenys, Aegon’s sister-queen, led the invasion of Dorne. Masters of their land, the Dornishmen retaliated with petty skirmishes that plagued the Targaryen army, only to retreat, hide, and attack anew when they found the opportunity. Their enemies elusive, Rhaenys finally flew to Sunspear on her dragon Meraxes, and there demanded the princess’ surrender. She refused. Rhaenys promised to return, to destroy them with fire and blood. Unbowed, unbent, unbroken, said the princess, and since then Dorne had remained free and independent of the Iron Throne.(with Lea Seydoux as Rhaenys Targaryen)
Don’t leave me alone in this world.
Jon Snow — Game of Thrones 4.07 “Mockingbird” [x]
Barney Stinson is literally such a disgusting, misogynistic, weightist, ableist piece of shit that I can’t be entirely certain that his character isn’t just supposed to be a joke.
