Aneurin Barnard as Lord Darnley in Mary, Queen of Scots
You thought you could be Mrs. de Winter, live in her house, walk in her steps, take the things that were hers! But she’s too strong for you. - Rebecca (1940, dir. Alfred Hitchcock)

If the first body was made of dirt, in order to plumb the hollow of that first throat, whose thumb first lodged inside the hinge of that first mouth to force it open?

ignis fatuus (medieval latin: “english fire”), commonly known as will-o’-the-wisp, is an atmospheric ghost light seen by travelers at night, especially over bogs, swamps or marshes. It resembles a flickering lamp and is said to recede if approached, drawing travelers from the safe paths. In European folklore, these lights are held to be either mischievous spirits of the dead, or other supernatural beings or spirits such as fairies, attempting to lead travelers astray. In literature, it sometimes has a metaphorical meaning, describing a hope or goal that leads one on but is impossible to reach, or something one finds sinister and confounding.
D O R N E →large peninsula which makes up the southern-most part of Westeros, and is one constituent regions of the Seven Kingdoms. Its capital is Sunspear and the lords of the ruling House Martell still style themselves “Prince” and “Princess” in the Rhoynish fashion.
Dorne is bordered by the Sea of Dorne to the north, the islands known as the Stepstones to the east, and the Summer Sea to the south. Stretched between them is the mountain range known as the Red Mountains, which separates Dorne from the remainder of the Seven Kingdoms by land. There are only two major passes though the Red Mountains, connecting Dorne with the rest of the continent by land, the Stone Way Pass and the Prince’s Pass. The Prince’s Pass leads to the Reach, while the Boneway exits the mountains near Summerhall.
Dorne is the hottest region on Westeros. The region is rocky, mountainous, arid and dry, and features the only desert on the continent. Its rivers provide some fertile lands and even during a long summer there is enough rain and other supplies of water to keep Dorne habitable. Inland water is almost as valuable as gold, and wells are jealously guarded.

Magic Wielders → The Necromancer
His ledger is always balanced. In for a penny, in for a pound. His price list is never a game of risk and reward. Some come to him so desperate he demands all the gold they’re good for. He whispers. Their loved ones whisper back. They will never say everything that those left behind to live wish to hear. Others smile in a way that makes him chuckle. He works his craft for free then. There’s no need for him to bleed them dry when the monsters they want summoned will do the job for him.
His nights may be lonely- but he’s never longed for any company besides the dead.
This kinda makes me want to work with necromancy/as a Necromancer. Just me? Okay.
