In the Shire, hobbits say: “What lovely weather we're having.” They also stir their teacups for four and a half clockwise rotations, place their left elbow seven-eighths down the way of the arm rest, and sniffle pointedly, which roughly translates to: “This tea is over-steeped and bland, your furniture is both uncomfortable and horrifically tasteless, and you're a twit of a host.”
And I think that's beautiful.
(Hobbitish is a language of manners and etiquette; the dwarves don't even know that Hobbitish is a thing; and Bilbo is trying to keep a straight face while the Company unintentionally sexually propositions him and challenges him to pie-eating contests to the death.)
Actions speak louder than words.

where Theon's life is a succession of romantic comedy situations straight out of the book of rom-com tropes. He doesn't mind half as much as he probably should.

“It’s never going to work,” Theon whispers as they get closer to the Jaeger. “That’s – for fuck’s sake, Robb, there are exactly three people who think that this has half a chance in hell of working. You, the Marshall and Jaime Lannister.”
Robb has to crack a smile at that. “Well, I suppose I would know who I want to drift with, seems to me that the Marshall got that far also because he can assess a situation, and Jaime Lannister is the only person on this fucking planet who managed to crack the code of kaiju DNA. Seems to me like it’s not that bad of a group.”
Or: where Robb and Theon are drift compatible and an apocalypse gets canceled. Also featuring Jaime and Brienne as team scientists and Davos as Pentecost. And the breach is in the middle of the Narrow Sea.

“If I figure out that you might want to watch that movie with a dress on, am I wrong?”
Theon’s eyes go, in fact, very wide. Robb can’t help chuckling at that.
“How did you -“
Or: where Theon might want to try a kink out and Robb is entirely on board with it.
