↳   Only the kindly man knew the Common Tongue. “Who are you?” he would ask her every day.
  “No one,” she would answer, she who had been Arya of House Stark, Arya Underfoot, Arya Horseface. She had been Arry and Weasel too, and Squab and Salty, Nan the cupbearer, a grey mouse, a sheep, the ghost of Harrenhal. but not for true, not in her heart of hearts. In there she was Arya of Winterfell, the daughter of Lord Eddard Stark and Lady Catelyn, who had once had brothers named Robb and Bran and Rickon, a sister named Sansa, a direwolf called Nymeria, a half brother named Jon Snow. In there she was someone. but that was not the answer that he wanted.

“It had been so long since he had last seen Arya. What would she look like now? Would he even know her? Arya Underfoot. Her face was always dirty. Would she still have that little sword he’d had Mikken forge for her? Stick them with the pointy end, he’d told her…Bring her home, Mance. I saved your son from Melisandre, and now I am about to save four thousand of your free folk. You owe me this one little girl.“

It had been so long since he had last seen Arya. What would she look like now? Would he even know her? Arya Underfoot. Her face was always dirty. Would she still have that little sword he’d had Mikken forge for her? Stick them with the pointy end, he’d told her. Wisdom for her wedding night if half of what he heard of Ramsay Snow was true.

JON AND ARYA APPRECIATION WEEK - Day 1: Favorite Memory


He wondered where Mance was now. Did he ever find you, little sister? Or were you just a ploy he used so I would set him free?

It had been so long since he had last seen Arya. What would she look like now? Would he even know her? Arya Underfoot. Her face was always dirty. Would she still have that little sword he’d had Mikken forge for her? Stick them with the pointy end, he’d told her. Wisdom for her wedding night if half of what he heard of Ramsay Snow was true. Bring her home, Mance. I saved your son from Melisandre, and now I am about to save four thousand of your free folk. You owe me this one little girl. 


Arya fucking Stark.

“Sansa knew all about the sorts of people Arya liked to talk to: squires and grooms and serving girls, old men and naked children, rough-spoken freeriders of uncertain birth. Arya would make friends with anybody.” - Sansa, AGoT

The people’s princess, who’s actually loved by the smallfolk and loves them in return.

Arya had loved nothing better than to sit at her father’s table and listen to them talk. She had loved listening to the men on the benches too; to freeriders tough as leather, courtly knights and bold young squires, grizzled old men-at-arms. She used to throw snowballs at them and help them steal pies from the kitchen. Their wives gave her scones and she invented names for their babies and played monsters-and-maidens and hide-the treasure and come-into-my-castle with their children. Fat Tom used to call her “Arya Underfoot,” because he said that was where she always was. She’d liked that a lot better than “Arya Horseface.” - Arya, AGoT

And the princess the North deserves.

This has been an announcement.

“It had been so long since he had last seen Arya. What would she look like now? Would he even know her? Arya Underfoot. Her face was always dirty. Would she still have that little sword he’d had Mikken forge for her? Stick them with the pointy end, he’d told her.”

Better pics later, but say hello to Chandra! Dizzy Stellar Dynamics from Dizzy Dogs and named for the astrophysicist Chandrasekhar, Chandra x-ray telescope, etc. First nickname is Arya Underfoot because that’s where she always is. :P

As I said before, she’s a screamer! Quite a voice on this one, haha. She’s more people-oriented than her sable sister was, which has its plusses (she’s very interested in us and wants to be with us) and minuses (will have to do a lot of work on separation anxiety. She follows me everywhere and screams if we are separated at all). She’s done pretty well on this busy day, several hours on a plane and then straight down to an agility trial.

Tried not to overwhelm her with training on top of everything, but we did start working on some stuff and she took it in stride. Offered focus, hand touches, collar grabs, paw handling, waiting politely instead of mauling the crate door to come out, playing with toys and leashes. Puppies tend to remind you of how much they don’t know, like just eating a treat from your hand without dropping it! Or not screaming when you step away for two seconds, haha.

So far Ryker and Solstice are doing ok. Lots of rewards and careful management for co-existing. Solstice seems to be warming up and even tried to play with Chandra, though we’ll be limiting their play until she’s a bit larger and less breakable. :P Ryker is interested when I’m holding her, but can’t be trusted if she approaches him on the ground. We’ll get there!

p.s. we had three “black lab!” comments before we even left the airport, so that’s begun XD
