If you look at the examples given in the "What is Author's Tone" article, you'll see how very different an identical situation can be by just the words an author chooses to use.
Look at the following words and see how they reflect a different feeling, even though the words are similar in meaning.
Even as someone who likes #Gameof Thrones in general, I can't help but think about how much better this show would have been if they'd had more women, poc, and woc writing and directing it. This latest development is a divisive one among fans, as some want to see her burn King's Landing to the ground after what happened to her right hand woman, dragon Rhaegal and both the Dothraki and Unsullied armies ... Making Ghost's exit all the more heartfbreaking: Jon never pet the dog goodbye ... ghost fought for the north, was always on jon's side, was loyal to him his whole life and jon just decided that ghost is better off some place else...
Just, every part of it would have been improved.— alanna bennett (@Alanna Bennett) May 6, 2019Remember when Sansa was like "you know, it actually was a good thing I got raped and otherwise assaulted and abused all those times, bc now I am a Strong Woman." Interesting. while others don't think it fits with how the character has evolved over the previous seasons. we burning it all down, imma show up to the red keep like pic.twitter.com/8M9SFPfl O6— baby grinch (@khaleeseas) May 6, 2019I have been a Dany stan since day 1, and I’ll be damned if I let anyone change my heart now. the way he put his head down when jon was leaving him behind, PLEASE, let me protect him pic.twitter.com/e H2Iil3wa N— ellie (@odairannies) May 6, 2019 In one of the show's lighter moments, Dany named Gendry a true Baratheon and made him Lord of Storm's End.
The episode was also criticized for putting one of the few women of color, Nathalie Emmanuel's Missandei, back in chains and using her death as a plot device for Dany... Not only was it a secret that her dad had no problem keeping for years, but one that, if it picks up steam, could make Jon the true ruler of King's Landing ... After surviving the Battle of Winterfell, Jon's direwolf, Ghost, was sent off to the North to live with Tormund and the rest of the wildlings.
and for making Brienne, one of the series' strongest characters, cry over Jaime Lannister. SANSA EXPRESSING GRATITUDE TOWARDS RAMSAY?!!!!!???! 🤬🚫🤬🚫🤬🗡🔪🤯— sonia_saraiya (@soniasaraiya) May 6, 2019as happy as i am with sansa's development throughout this series, i do have a problem with the way the writers keep pushing the narrative that a character has to go through something like rape and abuse to grow and develop.— kins (@sansascstark) May 6, 2019 As Dany inches closer to the throne, she also seems to be inching closer to her own father's fate as the "Mad King." After Missandei's murder at the hands of Cersei, she seems driven toward rage more than ever and it could be her undoing. He believes it's where his pooch -- now rocking a torn ear -- truly belongs.

Arya, rejecting Gendry’s proposal: “You’ll be a wonderful lord. Does he truly still have feelings for his sister ... Last night's episode showed Greyjoy being told he's going to be a father to a future king, something viewers know is not actually the case.
GTFOH.— The Young Turks (@The Young Turks) May 6, 20191. or does he have something else (i.e., her murder) in mind? Jamie literally took Brienne’s virginity, made her fall head over heels, and then told her that he’ll always be more in love with his sister. While Euron thinks he knocked up Cersei, that baby is really Jaime's and Tyrion may have just blown her cover story.
