you know what’s the BEST thing about this episode?
Oberyn fully dressed writing poetry (or so he says ehehehehe) far away from the nearest brothel and not being hypersexualized. FOR ONCE.

Game of Thrones S04E05 | Elia “Lady Lance” Sand mention
She leaned her back against a fluted pillar and wondered if her brother was looking at the same stars tonight, wherever he might be. Do you see the white one, Quentyn? That is Nymeria’s star, burning bright, and that milky band behind her, those are ten thousand ships. She burned as bright as any man, and so shall I. You will not rob me of my birthright!

In the first year of the war, they had only heard of the other vaguely. A queen, they told him, dark eyed and delicate, from distant shores escaping dragons. She will fall soon. A lordling, they told her, virtuous and grand, with a loyal army. He shall not put up a fight to save his people.
In the second year of the war, they met each other upon the battlefield. She was fierce and commanded her spear with poise, but he was fast and familiar with the city. Their armies clashed and they chased each other through parching desert, dusk till dawn, daylight to nighttime, relentless. They were too equal a match to succumb so easily.
In the third year of the war, they caught each other. Within days, they had formed a partnership, and in that single year of alliance, conquered the entirety of Dorne. When they had fallen in love, they were not aware. But she was a good queen, and he her paramour. Nymeria took Mors Martell as her husband. And so House Nymeros Martell of Sunspear was born.
