Dear A:TLA, Thank you for teaching me: The heart of JOY. The heaviness of LOSS. The pain of REGRET. The swell of PRIDE. The burden of HONOR. The hardship of SACRIFICE. The meaning of MERCY. The bonds of LOVE.
Sansa Appreciation Week: [Day 3] Favorite Season/Book → A Storm of Swords ∟ She could feel the snow on her lashes, taste it on her lips. It was the taste of Winterfell. The taste of innocence. The taste of dreams.
The director said the mission was a success. They got the data. They all made it out alive. Yet boom, South’s being blamed for “alerting them to the next attack” or whatever bullshit the director said. South is the one being bumped down the list. Why not North, who used experimental equipment in the field without a hardline to command? Why not Carolina who cleared North for that equipment in a move that should have been super catastrophic (success rate of .001%)? South even points this unfairness out!
"I thought you said the mission was a success, sir."
Damn fucking right he did and damn fucking right it was. But the director makes is personal. He says “The mission objective was stealth” and South looks to the side like she accepts that she didn’t do stealth. She knows she didn’t. But as soon as the director says her “carelessness,” and soon as he makes it about more than the mission parameters, South checks the fuck out. She shifts back to parade rest because she is 1000% done with his bullshit, as she very well should be.
