Long post ahoy.

So it‘s National Autism Awareness Month and in the spirit of I thought I would put together a collection of some of my and my wife’s autistic female faves from fiction.

the game of irony..

sansa, a beautiful stark girl, wanted a beautiful young prince but was treated like a princess, only by his uncle, the imp

tyrion lost faith in love years ago, thinks that he’s not worth of lady’s love and respect but was described by sansa as “kind” and “gentle”

arya didn’t want a prince, didn’t want a man at all but had/has a crush on gendry, the real son of robert baratheon, young and handsome man

gendry dislikes all highborns but eddard stark’s daughter is ok

jaime, the golden son, thought that he was attracted only to his sister, cersei but fell in love with a woman far less attractive

brienne hates guys like jaime but loves jaime
