asoiaf meme (minor characters): 2/8 relationships ~ lyanna stark and her brothers

Lyanna Stark was the only daughter of Lord Rickard Stark and his wife, Lady Lyarra Stark. She had two older brothers, Brandon and Eddard, and one younger brother, Benjen.


ㅤ House Stark of Winterfell. 

—  Look at me. You’re a Stark of Winterfell, you know our words.
—  ’Winter is coming’.
You were born in the long summer, you’ve never known anything else. But now winter is truly coming. In the winter, we must protect ourselves, look after one another.

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.

Her father used to kiss her whenever she’d done something wrong. He would laugh first, then pull her into his lap and kiss the top of her head. That was when she was little, though. Now when she does something wrong, he gives her a glare and a stern lecture.

Lyanna does not remember her mother’s kisses at all. It makes her feel guilty.

Her brothers had been kissing her since she was little, and they do not shy away from it now that she’s grown. Brandon still laughs when she’s angry at him, slings an arm around her shoulder, and kisses her temple. Ned hugs her and kisses her cheeks whenever he came home from the Vale. Benjen used to kiss her all the time when they were the only two little ones in Winterfell, but nowadays he just kisses her cheek when she swears to keep a secret for him. She kisses him back when he swears to keep a secret for her.

Howland Reed dropped to a kneel and kissed her hand after the tourney. 

“Thank you, my lady. You risked yourself for my honor. My spear is yours for as long as I live.”

Lyanna is charmed by this, but takes it seriously. She was a Stark, after all. It was her duty to receive her bannerman with the respect that they were due.

Robert kissed her– or tried to. They were leaving Harrenhal when he put his two big hands on her waist and pulled her in for a peck. Lyanna had turned her face and ducked out of his arms. He laughed and promised he would have his kiss, a long one, when they wed. Lyanna laughed in return, but grimaced when she turned away from him.

Rhaegar’s kisses were different than any she’d known. They made her heart flutter and her skin warm. They made her feel small and perfect and alive. Guilty, too, but that’s a draught she swallowed quickly.

There comes a point where she does not like his kisses much anymore. She thinks it started when he first slipped into her bed, lips on her mouth and neck and breasts. She did not like his kisses then. She did not want them.

She did not want him at all.

Lyanna knew her temperature was rising when she kissed her baby’s forehead and felt his skin cool against her lips. Even now she is unsure if she wants him, but he is here, against his will, just as much as she.

Ned held her. Ned listened. Ned kissed her hand as she slipped away.

It is the last kiss she’ll know.
