White Collar is the story of an adorable couple that adopts a con man and raises him as their own. Together, they fight crime!
In Swinging Pirates, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage take on a myth from Pirates of the Caribbean 2, in which some captured pirates sway their cage to and fro, eventually making their way to a cliff that allowed them to use vines to climb to their freedom.

- Character: Sansa Stark
- Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones)
- Reason for Being Hated: Being naive, believing that the heroic tales of knights and chivalry are how life actually is, being whiny or a brat, being unlike her sister.
I feel a lot of readers miss the fact that Sansa is an 11/13-year-old girl (book/TV). Who wasn’t naive, whiny, bratty, and idealistic at that age?
Arya initially shares many of these traits (except she wants to be the “knight”), but is given a free pass because she’s the tomboy defying social norms and making a “feminist” stand for “womankind”.
One could argue that Catelyn or Cersei were probably very much like Sansa as girls, but one got her fairy tale and will do anything to keep it while the other saw hers whither and die.
There is more than one way to write a female character. This macho, “anything you can do, I can do better” standard is actually far from the normal girl.
And ASOIAF was never about idealized characters, it was about characters as people. Normal, flawed people.
Sansa Stark is a person. She is a girl, she is weak, she is strong, she grows, she learns.
