(read: never)

Someone on my dash just said they “can’t imagine” GRRM writing Jon and Dany having sex and lmao, he already did.

Lying abed in her narrow bunk, she found herself wondering how it would be to have a man squeezed in beside her in place of her handmaid, and the thought was more exciting than it should have been. Sometimes she would close her eyes and dream of him, but it was never Jorah Mormont she dreamed of; her lover was always younger and more comely, though his face remained a shifting shadow. (Daenerys II, ASOS)

And then made a callback to it later on.

“Every man who walks the earth casts a shadow on the world. Some are thin and weak, others long and dark. You should look behind you, Lord Snow. The moon has kissed you and etched your shadow upon the ice twenty feet tall.” (Jon VI, ADWD)

I love the final chorus of You Will Be Found. Everyone comes in so strongly on the last big “you will be found” and the contrast between that and Evan’s “you will be found” at the end is so??? Emotive??? Because you kind of realise that his message of hope was something he didn’t fully believe but he was just kind of reassuring himself. And in the last line he’s saying it quietly, to himself again but now the idea is so much bigger than him and he can’t understand how it could have lifted and united so many people. and I’m just. Sobbing.
