"People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her."

Figure Skating Elements: Sit spins and combination spins

Time to refresh you memories on upright and layback spins and camel spins because here’s the final installment of the spin intro posts - sit spins! (And combination spins, but we’ll get to those in a second.) Sit spins are denoted as “SSp” on protocols and are defined as spins where the skating leg is bent so that the thigh is at least parallel to the ice. Basically, it looks like the skater is squatting down while spinning. There are numerous variations in sit spin positions and most of them don’t have names. I’ve only included some common and famous variations in this post. Both men and women can do some of these positions.

Basic sit spin: Sasha’s skating leg is bent and her free leg is extended in front of her.

Sit spin variations: The free leg can be bent, the torso can be twisted, and the arms can be in various positions.

Flying sit spin: Stephane “jumps” into the spin. This particular flying entrance is called a death drop. Flying sit spins appear as “FSSp” on protocols. Flying entrances are common for camel and sit spins, not so common for upright spins. A “hop” in the middle of a sit spin is another way to do a flying sit spin.

Pancake spin: A sit spin variation where the free leg is crossed on top of the thigh of the skating leg and the torso is bent over it. Mao’s arms are above her back in this example; if the skater’s arms are holding their skating leg instead, it is known as a cannonball spin.
