“I think Margaery is a more sincere girl than maybe the audience would give her credit for to begin with and what we’ve seen of her so far. That’s how I’m playing her, because it’s more interesting as an actor to play a more ambiguous line between sincerity and genuine affection and positive personality features. (…) I don’t think the pursuit for power and being a nice human being, or having elements of genuine sincerity, have to be mutually exclusive.” - Natalie Dormer
Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
