bolton quotes

Guess what day it is!

It’s Walda Wednesday! Have a quote:

“I have become oddly fond of my fat little wife. The two before her never made a sound in bed, but this one squeals and shudders. I find that quite endearing. If she pops out sons the way she pops in tarts, the Dreadfort will soon be overrun with Boltons.”

-Roose, A Dance with Dragons

Everyone thought he would choose Fair Walda. My lord grandfather offered Roose his bride’s weight in silver as a dowry, though, so my lord of Bolton picked me. I weigh six stone more than Fair Walda, but that was the first time I was glad of it. I’m Lady Bolton now & my cousin’s still a maid, & she’ll be nineteen soon, poor thing.
—  Fat Walda, A Storm of Swords
Roose/Walda Quotes

Perhaps Wednesdays should be Walda Wednesdays??

“My lord of Frey offered me my bride’s weight in silver for a dowry, so I chose accordingly.” -Roose, A Storm of Swords

“Roose Bolton entered, pale-eyed & yawning, accompanied by his plump & pregnant wife, Fat Walda.” -A Dance with Dragons

So… who else interprets the 2nd quote as Roose being tried because he & Walda are having sex all night??

Also, he’s totally a chubby chaser y/y??

MOAR Jaime-Roose Interaction

“Fever made Jaime as fearless as he was lightheaded. ‘Can this be the Lord of the Dreadfort? When last I heard, my father had sent you scampering off with your tail betwixt your legs. When did you stop running, my lord?’

"Bolton’s silence was a hundred times more threatening than Vargo Hoat’s slobbering malevolence. Pale as morning mist, his eyes concealed more than they told. Jaime misliked those eyes…

”'You have lost a hand.’

“'No,’ said Jaime, 'I have it here, hanging round my neck.’

"Roose Bolton reached down, snapped the cord, and flung the hand at Hoat. 'Take this away. The sight of it offends me.’”

-A Storm of Swords

Trolling Jaime & Brienne

“‘She [Cersei] is well, As is your… nephew.’ Bolton paused before he said nephew, a pause that said I know.”

“'My lord, these men tried to rape me.’

'Did they?’ Lord Bolton turned his pale eyes on Vargo Hoat. 'I am displeased. By that, & this of Ser Jaime’s hand.’”

-A Storm of Swords

So how did Roose find about about the incest? Stannis’s letter?

"Frequent leechings are the secret of a long life. A man must purge himself of bad blood."

It’s learning time again, dear followers!

Here’s some info on leeching:

“The European medical leech Hirudo medicinalis and some congeners, as well as some other species, have been used for clinical bloodletting for thousands of years. The use of leeches in medicine dates as far back as 2,500 years ago, when they were used for bloodletting in ancient India. Leech therapy is explained in ancient Ayurvedic texts. Many ancient civilizations practiced bloodletting, including Indian and Greek civilizations. In ancient Greek history, bloodletting was practiced according to the humoral theory, which proposed that, when the four humors, blood, phlegm, black and yellow bile in the human body were in balance, good health was guaranteed. An imbalance in the proportions of these humors was believed to be the cause of ill health. Records of this theory were found in the Greek philosopher Hippocrates’ collection in the fifth century B.C. Bloodletting using leeches was one method used by physicians to balance the humors and to rid the body of the plethora.” -Wikipedia
