When Jon had been very young, too young to understand what it meant to be a bastard, he used to dream that one day Winterfell might be his. Later, when he was older, he had been ashamed of those dreams. Winterfell would go to Robb and then his sons, or to Bran or Rickon should Robb die childless. And after them came Sansa and Arya. Even to dream otherwise seemed disloyal, as if he were betraying them in his heart, wishing for their deaths. I never wanted this, he thought as he stood before the blue-eyed king and the red woman. I loved Robb, loved all of them… I never wanted any harm to come to any of them, but it did. And now there’s only me. All he had to do was say the word, and he would be Jon Stark, and never more a Snow. All he had to do was pledge this king his fealty, and Winterfell was his. All he had to do…

… was forswear his vows again.


Put the streets on notice with a Waddle Dee cap ⊟

How are you supposed to respond when a kid shows up with a hat that has Meta Knight’s face on it, and just kills the whole fashion scene? Your friends try to hide their own embarrassing non-Kirby hats, sitting on them and looking nervously at each other. That girl you’ve been crushing on for months gasps, her pupils dilating. The smartphone in your hand buzzes – it’s your mother, and she just wants to tell you that she is very, very disappointed in you.

I’m not even sure how you could show your face around the block anymore until you get your own King Dedede hat just so you don’t look foolish.

Japanese company Asami is selling these mesh caps for ¥2700 (around $25) each, and intends to release the Dedede cap later this  year. Via Inside-Games!
