I am so sick of people thinking Lyanna “Privileged” Mormont is in any way a barometer on which to judge Sansa’s actions and choices
LYANNA MORMONT WAS NEVER A PRISONER OF WAR
LYANNA MORMONT WAS NEVER SEPARATED FROM HER HOME
LYANNA MORMONT HAS SPENT HER WHOLE LIFE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO LOVE HER
LYANNA MORMONT HAS NEVER BEEN SOUTH OF WINTERFELL
LYANNA MORMONT NEVER HAD TO MAKE A CHOICE THAT COULD POTENTIALLY DETERMINE THE FATE OF HER OWN FAMILY
LYANNA MORMONT WAS NEVER ISOLATED BY HER ENEMIES, WITH NO INFORMATION BUT WHAT SHE WAS TOLD BY SAID ENEMIES, WHILE MEMBERS OF HER FAMILY WERE IMPRISONED
LYANNA MORMONT NEVER HAD TO BEG FOR THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE SHE LOVED
LYANNA MORMONT CAME INTO HER POSITION THROUGH AN ACCIDENT OF BIRTH, NEVER HAD TO FIGHT OR STRUGGLE TO GAIN HER AUTHORITY, SAFETY, OR HOME
LYANNA MORMONT IS ABLE TO BE AS ARGUMENTATIVE AND SASSY AS SHE WISHES BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN A TITLE, POWER, AND SAFETY AND HAS NEVER BEEN FORCED INTO ANY SORT OF DANGEROUS SITUATION
LYANNA MORMONT NEVER HAD GROUPS OF ARMED MEN RESTRAINING AND BEATING HER IF SHE DISPLEASED ANYONE.
LYANNA MORMONT HAS NEVER BEEN THREATENED WITH RAPE, MURDER, THE MURDER OF HER LOVED ONES, OR HAVING THE SHIT BEATEN OUT OF HER
LYANNA MORMONT LIVES IN A METAPHORICAL IVORY FUCKING TOWER AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN SAFE AND CARED FOR.
LYANNA MORMONT HAS NEVER CONTRIBUTED ANYTHING MORE THAN 60-SOME MEN TO ANYTHING.
LYANNA MORMONT SEEMS “STRONG” BECAUSE SHE’S NEVER BEEN THREATENED WITH LEGITIMATE CONSEQUENCES. IT IS EASY TO BE “STRONG” WHEN YOU’RE COMPLETELY SECURE AND HAVE POWER HANDED TO YOU. WHEN THERE ARE NO NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OR RISK TO DOING AS YOU WISH.
LYANNA MORMONT DOESN’T HAVE ANY LEGITIMATE OPINIONS ON THE ACTIONS OF ANYONE, LEAST OF ALL SANSA FUCKING STARK. SHE DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING, AT ALL.
Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark’s love started the war, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen’s love will end it. Spoilers for season 7.
Pairings; Rhaegar Targaryen/Lyanna Stark; Jon Snow/Daenerys Targaryen
Blue Winter Roses
“A blue flower growing
from a chink in a wall of ice, filling the air with sweetness.”
Rhaegar Targaryen was the fiercest warrior in all of
Westeros. The son of the “mad king” Aerys Targaryen II and the beautiful
Rhaella. Rhaegar was the crowned prince of Dragonstone and the heir to the iron
throne, set to take over the mighty House Targaryen when his father succeeded the
throne to him. He was said to be one of the most beautiful men in all the realm
with flowing silver hair, a body like one of the gods, and violet eyes. Rhaegar
had a special talent that was one of his most admired traits. He loved to sing.
The bards would sing songs of just how beautiful his voice was. Rhaegar was
never one for the song of swords like his rivals Robert Baratheon and Jaimie
Lannister. He always preferred his golden harp to the cold silver steel of his
Rhaegar would often visit Summerhall and bring only his
harp. His songs were said to reduce women to tears. He was desired by all the
Dornish and Westorsi princesses. Rhaegar had chosen his bride to be Elia
Martell, the beautiful Dornish princess. They had a lavish wedding and she
birthed him two children, Rhaenys and Aegon. Rhaegar believed Aegon to be the
prince that was promised, born to make the world a better place. Elia had grown
bed-riden due to the demanding births of her children. She was told she couldn’t
have anymore children due to the harsh births of Aegon and Rhaenys. All the
more, Rhaegar had kept his vow to his Dornish wife. That is until the tourney
Rhaegar had succeeded tremendously at the tourney, even
beating Ser Arthur Dayne. He had won the opportunity to crown the queen of love
and beauty. A beautiful crown made of blue winter roses. The whole crowd has
expected him to name the princess his queen. After all, she was the future
queen of Westoros. Rhaegar gave his crown of winter roses to another, Lyanna
Stark, Robert Baratheon’s betrothed.
Lyanna Stark was beautiful, although her beauty was thought
to be of a wild kind. Lyanna didn’t share the features of Elia Martell. She had
long raven hair, a thin frame, and eyes of grey. She was a noble and righteous
woman, but wild at heart. She was born to the broody Stark family of
Winterfell. She loved her brothers Brandon, Benjen, and Ned with a fierce loyalty.
Lyanna was betrothed to Robert Baratheon, as her father Rickard had promised
her to the young lord of Storm’s end. Lyanna had confided in Ned that Robert
wasn’t one to keep his marriage bed vows.
Lyanna had come to the tourney at Harrenhal and noticed
three men kicking a boy no younger than 15. The boy was Howland Reed who happen
to be employed by her father. Lyanna saved the boy and cleaned up his wounds.
Lyanna was a kind soul at heart. Howland Reed would always remember that women
who saved him from the squires. Lyannna had attended a feast and saw the crown
prince Rhaegar Targaryen play a beautiful and sad song on his harp. It made her
weep. Rhaegar later crowned her the queen of love and beauty placing a crown of
blue winter roses on her lap.
If the rumors were to be believed, Lyanna was kidnapped by
Rhaegar Targaryen with the help of Ser Arthur Dayne and Ser Oswell Whent. Many
tales have been told about the wolf girl and the dragon prince. If they were to
believe Robert Baratheon, Lyanna was taken against her will and raped by
Rhaegar Targaryen. If they were to believe others, Lyanna went of her own free
will with the handsome prince. Tales of songs and stories never to be forgotten
some would say. Only the truth remained for those who were there.
The real truth behind Rhaegar and Lyanna’s story was simple.
A true love story. Although the rumors told of a grim tale of the two star
crossed lovers, the reality was far from it. Lyanna had willingly gone with her
prince to Dorne. Against the advice and pleading of her brothers and family,
Lyanna had unwittingly caused a War in the Seven Kingdoms that would last years.
Much like Helen of Troy, the face that launched a thousand ships. Rhaegar
abandoning his duty to wife Elia Martell, and Lyanna abandoning her duty to
Rhaegar had his marriage to Elia annulled. A secret hidden
away in the lost pages of the citadel. Until a man named Samwell Tarly came
upon them years later, but that’s a tale for another time. He and Lyanna
married in a forest wedding deep in the woods of Dorne. Lyanna had looked truly
radiant in a deep blue violet gown, flowing raven hair, and a bouquet of winter
blue roses. Rhaegar looking like the Targaryen he was in full red and black
armor with three dragon heads on the crest. They had recited their undying love
for each other in the woods on the that moonlit night.
The tales tell of the love that started the war, or as many
know Robert’s rebellion. Robert seething with jealousy and wrath at Rhaegar for
taking the one women he couldn’t have. He became obsessed with the wolf
princess, even as he took Cersei Lannister as a bride. Cersei knew he never
truly loved her, but Cersei had a secret of her own. She was fucking her twin
brother, Jaime. Although that’s a tale for another time as well. This Jaime
Lannister, also known as Kingslayer, had slayed Rhaegar’s father “Mad King”
Aerys Targaryen II. Aerys wanted to burn King’s Landing to ground with wildfire.
They say Targaryens are born with the flip of coin due to the rampant incest in
their lineage to keep their bloodline pure, one side is madness the other side
greatness. Aerys had landed on madness. Rhaegar on greatness.
Although Rhaegar had greatness in him, his love was selfish.
He chose love over duty and honor. He had foolishly and recklessly caused the marriage
of three great houses to collapse. One with a mad king, one with a jealous fat
cunt, and the other with wolf blood. This selfishness is what ultimately led to
his death at the trident at the hands of Robert Baratheon. He had fought valiantly.
Although Rhaegar had betrayed his marriage and family name, the people still
loved him. He was brave, noble, and kind. Rhaegar was foolish though, blinded
by love for a woman who smelled like winter roses. The fall of House Targaryen
laid at his feet. Robert Baratheon crowned king of the seven kingdoms after the
Kingslayer killed Aerys. Robert later betrayed by Cersei, and the Lannisters
held the throne for years. Alas, the wheel continuing. “Starks,Lannisters, Baratheons, Targaryens, Tyrells, they are just
spoke on a wheel. This one is on top that one is on top and on and on it spins.”
It wouldn’t be until 20 years later that the wheel was finally broken.
Howland Reed, the young boy Lyanna saved from the squires,
happened to be there that day Ned Stark brought a screaming baby boy from the
Tower of Joy. A beautiful boy with grey eyes and dark hair. ”Promise me, Ned.”
Lyanna begged of her brother to keep the boy a secret. If Robert knew of her
child with the dragon prince, he would kill the boy. Ned had tried to urge
Lyanna to keep fighting for her life, but a bed of blood claimed the light from
her eyes. Ned would keep this promise till his death at the hands of the
Lannisters on the block.
Ned had taken to name him Jon, and passed him off as his
own. The boy Jon growing up to be Jon Snow, the bastard of Winterfell. Ned
Stark had told his wife, Catelyn Tully, of the bastard boy fathered by him and
a tavern wench and she had despised the boy his whole childhood. Ned loved Jon
as if he was his own flesh and blood, although never revealing to Jon the truth
although Jon begged him to tell him of his mother. Jon growing close with
siblings Arya, Bran, Robb, and Rickon. Sansa Stark learning from her mother’s
hate never treated the boy with kindness when he was a child. Ned had been
summoned by Robert Baratheon to be his Hand. Ned took Sansa with him to the
capital. Sansa always dreamed of marrying a young price. Catelyn had forbid Jon
from Winterfell. Jon went North and took the black becoming a man in the Night’s
Watch. He was to take no wife and have no children. Jon believing to be a
bastard never thought he would find love as he had been looked down upon by
Catelyn his whole life, never knowing a mother’s love. Little did Catelyn Tully
know that boy would become King in the North, and command the very castle she
forbid him from.
The King in the North was much like his father, but his
looks took greatly after his mother. Jon was brave, noble, and kind. He was
selfless and honest as well, a trait Rhaegar lacked greatly. Jon always assumed
he gotten those qualities from his mother. Jon still baffled by the whole
reveal of his lineage. He never truly thought of Rhaegar as his father. Ned
Stark being the one who raised him from birth and taught him the morals of
honor and integrity. He was never a Targaryen, he’d always be a Stark. Jon wish
Ned would have told him of his mother, Lyanna. He had only heard tales from
Howland Reed of how she saved him from the squires during the tourney at
Harrenhal. Howland Reed told Jon as much in the tents outside of Greywater
Watch during the War of the dead. So little time did he have to learn of his
mother. Jon knew she loved blue winter roses and he somehow came upon them when
the war ended at the remnants of the wall. He would always pick them for his
wife after she had told him of her prophecy so long ago in the House of the
Undying. “A blue flower growing from a
chink in a wall of ice, filling the air with sweetness.”
Jon’s wife, Daenerys Targaryen, was the most beautiful women
in the world. Long silver blonde hair and violet eyes like her brother Rhaegar.
Daenerys was the very embodiment of house Targaryen, she favoring with the side
of the coin that held greatness. Daenerys was strong, fierce, compassionate,
and selfless. She had committed her dragons and armies to the war of the dead
after rescuing Jon from his foolish attempt at trying to capture a wight to
show Cersei Lannister the threat. She had lost one of her children that day,
Viseron, named after her madman brother Viserys Targaryen. Jon had nearly lost
his life that day after falling into a frozen lake. He will never forget the
awe he had when Dany rode her three dragons into the battle against the army of
the dead beyond the wall. She had saved all of them that day. When he awoke
from his state of unconsciousness to her sitting at his bedside, Jon knew he
had found the love he had been craving since he was a boy.
Jon had been in love once before, he thought. Circumstances
and deception at play when he met the wilding Ygritte. She had been kissed by
fire with a head full of bright red hair. Wild, bold, and fierce she worked her
way into Jon’s heart without him knowing it. Jon knowing fully well the deception
he was doing for his brothers, as he pretended to deceive the Night’s watch. He
broke every vow he had with Ygritte that night in the cave. He only ending up
leaving her, while she put three arrows in him. Funny how fate has a way of
being cruel to him, as his wilding girl died in his arms with an arrow to the
heart. Knowing the love he holds for Dany now, his love for Ygritte was a foolish
youthful obsession and lust. He always had a place in his heart for Ygritte,
but he had felt he didn’t love her out choice only out of sheer and dire
His love for Dany grew out of choice, although the timing
couldn’t have been worse. They were first at odds when he came to Dragonstone
seeking help for the war against the dead. He furiously demanding her help and
alliance, she furiously demanding he bend the knee to her cause. Daenerys was
the rightful and last heir to the throne and Targaryen dynasty she thought at
the time. The war for the throne still ongoing years after Rhaegar and Lyanna
had died. Cersei Lannister the crowned queen of three, not seven, kingdoms Dany
would always joke as Dany had alliances with Highgarden, Dorne, and the Iron
Islands. Jon had grown to respect and admire Dany after he saw what kind of
leader she would be. Still unwilling to bend the knee to, she let him mine the
precious dragonglass under Dragonstone.
Jon, unaware of his blood at the time, even had the courage
to pet one of her dragons. Dany teases him that he accepted them as his
children that day even though he didn’t know it. Jon only truly realized his
love for Dany when she sat at his beside and pledged herself to his cause while
asking for nothing in return. He eventually bent the knee, although Dany never
took the Northern title from him after the war ended. Jon’s love for Dany ran
more deeply than even he could process. She had been afraid at first to accept
his love and show her love in return. They were at war, and there was no time
for such things. Selfless they were always putting their duty and their people
before their own desires. Dany ending her war with Cersei Lannister to fight with
the dead, Jon nearly giving his life fighting the Night king beyond the wall.
The difference between his love for Dany, and his father’s
love for his mother was that his father was selfish. Rhaegar didn’t think of
the consequences of running off with his mother. Blinded by pure love his
father started a war that killed him and his mother. Lyanna no better herself
as she left her family and brothers behind. He didn’t blame them for their
selfishness, if he had the choice to do the same with Dany he may would have in
different circumstances. Jon didn’t have that choice as Ned Stark had fashioned
him for duty and honor. The War for the dead loomed upon them when they met,
and the Night King wouldn’t wait.
Although Jon was different from his father in many ways, he
was somewhat the same. He held a fierce, true love for Dany bound by an
unwitting, stubborn honor for his pride and morals, and sometimes it made him
think unrationally. When the war for the dead had ended, and Dany and Cersei
battled with what armies they had left, Jon found out his true lineage from
Bran and Sam. He was shocked to say the least. His whole life seemingly a lie now.
Jon was no Targaryen. Dany had been thrilled when she had found out. “Blood of
my blood.” she said to him as tears of joy streamed down her face. Jon wasn’t
having much joy. He and Dany were related by blood. Dany being his father’s
sister. Jon was at a standstill, Dany was the love of his life but his
upbringing had taught him incest to be immorally wrong. His Stark values
getting the best of him, he told Dany it better to not be together.
Furious and heartbroken, Dany took off on Drogon to go burn
King’s Landing and take what was rightfully hers. The dragon blood of the Targaryen
running through her veins, Dany was venomous towards Jon. How could something
they could do nothing about tear them apart? He was a coward, just like his
father. Rhaegar abandoning his house to run off with Lyanna Stark and starting
a war, and Jon being the stubbon Stark he was ending any hope she had for a
future with him and a house with a red door. So different father and son, yet
so the same. Dany was no fool. She would never be like Lyanna Stark and
foolishly hope for love and run away from her path. Dany would forget about
Jon, and take what was rightfully hers. How had she strayed for so long from
her goal? The war of the dead being a rightful purpose, but now that she had
defeated the Night King with fire and blood why had she waited so long? Just like
her brother, blinded by foolish love. Jon had torn down her walls and she felt
as if she could finally be the girl she was again. She loved him like she had
loved no other. How could he abandon her after all they had been through? Dany
cried as Drogon flew towards the mad queen’s keep. Dany hadn’t wanted the
throne after the war was over. She would defeat Cersei of course, but she had
wanted to marry Jon and live in Winterfell. How desire can make people do such
foolish things. Rhaegar was killed for it. Lyanna as well. Dany would not be.
It took Dany two days to burn King’s landing to the ground.
Drogon spewing fire on the city below. Luckily most of the residents fleeing
south to Dorne during the war of the dead. Jamie Lannister eventually slaying
the mad queen with his own hands. King’s Landing lie in ash. Dany had become
the queen she had never wanted to be. The queen of ashes. Most of her armies
gone, Daenerys stood in the rubble of the Red Keep with her hand Tyrion at her
side. What would Rhaegar think of her now? He always the valiant fighter and
noble prince. He would never use dragons to burn the world.
Too enthralled in her fury when leaving Winterfell, Dany had
forgotten Rhaegal was behind in Winterfell. Choosing to stay with his rider Jon.
Dany seethed at the thought of one of her children staying behind. As much as
Dany wanted to hate Jon with all her veins, she couldn’t. He was only doing
what he thought was right. How could she blame him for choosing honor over
love? His honor one of the qualities she loved him most for. Dany thought of
Lyanna Stark. Dany may be more like the wolf princess than she thought. Jon had
taken greatly after her. Daenerys had hopelessly followed Jon until the ends of
the earth when the Night King arrived. Long forgotten her duty to the crown. Lady
Lyanna had followed her brother to ends of the earth, not thinking of the consequences.
Hadn’t Dany done the same? Risked her life for the one she loved. She had
nearly lost it when following Jon by herself when he charged at the Night King.
Only to be protected by an injured Drogon’s fire when a walker almost toppled
her over into the frozen ice lake. Tears streamed down her face as she stared
at the ash of the Red Keep. She didn’t want the crown anymore, all she wanted
It took Jon two days to realize how stupid he had been. He
always chose honor and duty over love. This time it had cost him the one thing
he only ever chose for himself. Truth be told, Jon didn’t care about the blood
relation. He had never known Dany growing up, and they got together without
even knowing of the relation. He loved her, and he had broken her because of
his own foolish pride. As little as he thought of his father, they did have one
thing in common. A desire to be with the one they loved. His father risking everything
to be with Lyanna. What had Jon risked for Dany? She had given him everything
to defeat the night king. She had given him her word, her body, and her heart.
She never strayed from her promises. Jon broke her trust at the first sign of
misfortune. Jon raced to his dragon, named after his father, Rhaegal and flew
for King’s Landing.
It took him a day’s ride to get there. Plumes of smoke
rising from the city. Rhaegal sensed where his mother and brother dragon were. It
didn’t take the dragon long to land on the ground right by them. He saw her
there staring at the burned down Red Keep with her back to him. The Imp
noticing him first with a hard stare. He made his way over to his queen. He
knew she could sense him behind her and she tensed.
She looked at him with heartbreak and sadness behind her
violet eyes. What had he done?
Dany felt his presence when Drogon screamed for his brother.
Had he come to mock her for rushing off furiously to defeat Cersei? No that
wasn’t Jon. He had come to say goodbye. Tears sprang in her eyes. This was it.
She would accept his decision because she loved him. Even if he didn’t want to
be with her, she would still respect his choice. She still needed to clean up
the mess from the wars and she needed his help to unite the people.
To her surprise, Jon had tears in his eyes when she looked
at him. They just stared at each other and she began to understand. He hadn’t
come here to say goodbye, he had come back for her. They had always said their
emotions through their eyes. He had grabbed her and pulled her into a tight
embrace and whispered deep apologies to her and told her how much he loved her.
Dany melted in his arms. She told him that the world needed them to help make
it a better place. She couldn’t do it alone, she needed him to help her.
Together. They flew on dragon back to Winterfell the same night.
Like time repeating itself Jon and Daenerys got married in
the moonlight under the godswood, just as Rhaegar and Lyanna married under a
beautiful tree in the forest in Dorne. Jon wore grey and white armor with the
stark direwolf on the crest. Dany wore a dress of black and red with flowing
braids in her silver hair, and she carried a bouquet of blue winter roses.
Dany and Jon later ascended their claim to the throne to
Tyrion Lannister as Warden of the Seven Kingdoms. A democracy with each Kingdom
choosing their own leader. Jon had named his sister Sansa head of the North,
and Gendry Baratheon warden of Storm’s end. Daenerys gave the Iron Islands to
their rightful owner Yara Greyjoy, Highgarden to Bronn (he had always wanted a
castle), and Casterly rock to Jaime Lannister. Tyrion diplomatically bringing
peace and diplomacy for years to come.
Spring had finally come for Westeros, the wars coming to
end. Peace and prosperity raining until their deaths. The love that had started
the wars long forgotten in song. The love that ended the wars sung to all the
children in the land.
Rumors were told of the great love story of the dragon queen
and the wolf prince. Some say they ended up traveling to Essos and disappearing
from the world, and some say they ruled secretly with Tyrion Lannister the
whole time. Only the people who were there knew the truth.
Lyanna Targaryen told her children the tale of two star
crossed lovers who ran away together and married in a forest. Their love had
started a war for decades.
Lyanna Targaryen also told her children a tale of two star
crossed lovers who raised her in a house with a red door and lemon tree growing
outside in small village outside of Winterfell. Their love had ended that war.
Meanwhile, a recap on Jon and Sansa's 'unadulterated platonic relationship'
Sansa, after being raped and abused:

i'd like to see you try.
if i die, dont bring me back
im not your servant
you're in my camp. Im your Commander
*probably forgets his plan and that he's the Commander, so he stupidly marches front and center to the Boltons*
*waited until Jon Snow is halfway through the battlefield* Go! go!! Follow your stupid commander!!
oh well, since my army is gone. How about i take you up w your offer? One on one?

Jon. Where is he?
im having the Lord's chamber prepared for you.
you should take it.
no you take it.
'I'm not a Stark'™
You are to me.
You're the Lady of Winterfell. You're the reason why we're standing here. You. The knights of the Vale rode for you. Speaking of, you wanna tell me why you never mentioned you have a battalion in your pocket?
(comes closer) we need to trust each other. *forehead kiss™ that lasted a little longer*
*Sansa sits at the left side of Jon, looking proud as the North names him King in the North*

And how should i be smarter? By listening to you?

*insert ned/cat parallel here*
youre so obsessed w the Night king, you forgot about the Incest queen in the South.
im obsessed w him bec i saw the fantasy shit he has beyond the wall
hun, the South has their own fuckery. Father underestimated Cersei, that obvs didnt turn out so well
Jon, you've read the Art of War by Ned Stark. I've read the one by Cersei.
Did she sign your copy?
Yes. I'm her number one stan.
*after Sam tells him there is dragonglass in dragonstone which lol Ser Davos DID NOT even mention) i should go to dragonstone.
Jon 'reckless, stubborn, you know nothing' Snow! What did we talk about being an idiot? Have you forgotten why father fought the mad king in the first place? That girl is dangerous!!

You'll be safe here. I'll leave Ghost to you. And you'll keep everyone safe. Until I return, the North is yours. (This is me trusting you)

(snaps and chokes LF) istg you touch her and i'll kill you myself
so that was a little intense. Oh Cat 2.0!! There you are!! Hellooo!!
*looks back and waves at Sansa before leaving - ala Brienne & Jaime style*
*ACTUALLY STARES LONGINGLY AT JON*
damn. At Ned 2.0? Story of my life, huh?
And Sansa. Does she miss me terribly?
(i'd be careful of what you say next)
well i've never touched her and i was really nice to her
oh good. I mean idc. But that's really great. I'd hate to almost kill you myself. Not that i care.
*looks like fine snack at the mountain top* i miss home.
*subtly ships Jonaerys*
(rolls eyes) you know what's real? The White Walkers.
*comes back to WF but is cryptic AF*
i wish Jon were here
and you were so beautiful, in your white wedding dress--
(kim kardashian voice) if you know how i feel why would u say that like you put me in such an uncomfortable situation like u know im not happy i know im trying to see if it will work out here and i know that its not--
jon left you in charge?
he did. I hope he comes back soon. I remember how stoked he was to see me. We're buddy-buddies now. His heart will probs stop if sees you.
so you and the Pretty dragon lady.*nudge, nudge* jonaerys is real. I ship it. Bec i saw you look at her direction for .1 second and i know foh shure you are secretly in love w her. I have the receipts.
(loses his shit) you think i'll be tired of going all batshit crazy over someone mentioning her name?? Your traitorous coward useless ass can choke
(this damn bastard cant keep it together ffs)
*kiss ass to Sansa*
ok thats nice but Jon is our king. Im a loyal ho, you fake ass lords cant relate.
Jon I wish you can come back v soon. I miss you. Obviously Ghost does too, remember him? The Northern lords Are bipolar fuckers who are as loyal as fake fans are. Arya and Bran are back but they've gone cray cray. PS. Bran says the undeadz are heading towards the Eastwatch. He has visions now.
*hypocritical speech about something that happened 6 seasons ago*
sis i love u but stfu. Even tho Jon is an idiot, he gives me credit that i deserve. We won Winterfell back because of ME--
'Sis', idk about you and Jon and but 'I' single-handedly avenged the Red Wedding by wiping the Freys out. But go awf i guess.
their loyalty is to Jon. Which is debatable btw. Jon had left me on seenzone for weeks.
doesnt matter. He left you in charge. The North likes you
those lords probably doesnt even know what 'loyalty' is. If they found out about the letter I wrote 6 seasons ago when my character hasnt developed yet, by the time Jon comes back, he'll have no army left
ok but Arya is your sister. She wouldn betray you
she would if she thinks i'm going to betray Jon. Which is never gonna happen.
“Bran mate, why the fuck haven’t you said Jon is son of Rhaegar and Lyanna ?”
Personally I think he hasn’t said anything to allow Jonerys to become an actual thing.
Say what you want about the last episode but it is clear Jon and Dany are falling/already in love.
Now most of the Antis are like “BUT THAT’S INCEST”
and I can’t fault your argument there, incest is mank. I think Jon would also be put off completely at the start if he knew Dany was his aunt (Dany is pretty chill with incest given she was raised thinking she’d have to marry her brother, and also it’s kinda her houses thing)
I think Bran hasn’t said anything so the pair will get together before the whole nephew aunt thing comes out to put them off the idea (as in they may be married/engaged when the news is dropped)
because Grrm said Jon and Dany coming together is the main point of the series (I think the books are gonna be very different with how it’s done) and I do not believe for one second that Jon would go on with it if he knew the truth about his parentage
because while we know they’re related, the characters do not, so to them, they are two unrelated by blood people falling in love and that’s grand. To them.
Now I am very interested to see the reactions of said characters when the big reveal happens @ bran mate do ya thang
