Asoiaf meme (minor characters): (5/9) scenes ⟶ Catelyn, Maege and Dacey talking about the women of Bear Island

Dacey Mormont looked up at the sky. “I would sooner have water raining down on me than arrows.”

Catelyn smiled despite herself. “You are braver than I am, I fear. Are all your Bear Island women such warriors?”

“She-bears, aye,” said Lady Maege. “We have needed to be. In olden days the ironmen would come raiding in their longboats, or wildlings from the Frozen Shore. The men would be off fishing, like as not. The wives they left behind had to defend themselves and their children, or else be carried off.”

“There’s a carving on our gate,” said Dacey. “A woman in a bearskin, with a child in one arm suckling at her breast. In the other hand she holds a battleaxe. She’s no proper lady, that one, but I always loved her.” ― Catelyn V, A Storm of Swords.

Brandon was never shy about taking what he wanted. I am old now, a dried-up thing, too long a widow, but I still remember the look of my maiden’s blood on his cock the night he claimed me. I think Brandon liked the sight as well. A bloody sword is a beautiful thing, yes. It hurt, but it was a sweet pain. ― The Turncloak, A Dance with Dragons.

The list is long, and many are the legends, for there is scarce a noble house in all the Reach that does not boast of descent from one of Garth Greenhand’s countless children. Even the heroes of other lands and kingdoms are sometimes numbered amongst the offspring of the Greenhand.

day 3: one king → viserys ii

Viserys II had within him the capacity to be a new Conciliator, for no king had ever been shrewder or more capable. Tragically, a sudden illness carried him away in 172 AC. // marc warren as viserys ii

Betha Blackwood was a member of House Blackwood who became queen consort to King Aegon V Targaryen. Betha was known as Black Betha because of her dark eyes and hair. She was a spirited woman also considered stubborn or willful. While Betha and Aegon had married for love, Betha assisted in arranging politically advantageous betrothals for their children. The youths resisted Betha’s and Aegon’s plans, however, and the children instead married for love as their parents had done.

The crannogman saw a maid with laughing purple eyes dance with a white sword, a red snake, and the lord of griffins, and lastly with the quiet wolf… but only after the wild wolf spoke to her on behalf of a brother too shy to leave his bench. ― Bran II, A Storm of Swords.

Rohanne Webber was married at ten years old to her father’s squire. He was slain during the Battle of the Redgrass Field in 196 AC, fighting for House Targaryen. Addam also died during the battle, fighting for House Blackfyre, causing Rohanne to develop a grudge against his father. Rohanne’s second husband was old, and died of a chill. Her third husband, Ser Simon Staunton, choked to death on a chicken bone. Her last husband, Ser Rolland Uffering died of the Great Spring Sickness. Before his death, Lord Wyman Webber attempted to marry her to Ser Lucas Longinch, but she refused him. Rohanne later married Lord Gerold Lannister and had four sons with him, twins Tywald and Tion, Tytos, and Jason Lannister. She was the grandmother of Tywin, Kevan, Gerion, Tygett and Genna Lannister. Lady Rohanne disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 230 AC.
