It seems like everyone has forgotten about the demise of House Targaryen and how Robert Baratheon became the Usurper. In a nutshell, The Dragon Queen’s claim to the throne is pretty weak, no matter how dominant her family line had been in the past.
It was a total eclipse of the cruise for passengers aboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. They were treated to a doubly fantastical eclipse experience on Monday afternoon as the ship sailed through the path of totality and Bonnie Tyler, the iconic 80s singer of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” performed her hit alongside…
★★★★ The gamble on opening the window to the muggy night paid off with clean new air by morning. Light passed through the open top and windows of a yellow jeep in traffic.

To the way you showed me what real love is, because even now, I forget.
★★★★ Clouds slowed the onset of daylight, but once the sun got clear it was dazzling to stand out in. The breezes were impeccable, though.
