summary: He isn’t
going to protect anyone else but her. Well. Then there’s him. HakYona.
also read on: fanfiction notes: for HakYona Week: prompt protect. (with all apologies, I offer
this short piece. (so many fandom weeks in the summer! I must admit that I’m
getting fatigued, ahhh.)
And while every single thing about Hak’s life has changed
more than he would have ever guessed in his life, the one thing that remains is
his habit of waking up just minutes before dawn comes.
I’m mildly upset about Rickon’s death because A.) that actor is adorable. B.) I wanted him to eventually be Lord of Winterfell, I was convinced that was going to happen. C.) It was lazy writing on the show writers part to bring him back after two seasons, give him ZERO lines, and then kill him like that. BAD WRITERS. VERY LAZY. GAH. D.) he didn’t serve too terribly much of a purpose. Why does Jon have to be enraged at his brothers death like that, why couldn’t they write in Sansa telling Jon in awful detail what Ramsey did to her, and Job get enraged that way? Or like, literally anything else. I like loose ends that never get resolved. We could have left Rickon’s end loose.
E.) I would have loved to find Rickon in whatever future season they have the epic battle against White Walkers. With Asha and Shaggy Dog, full on Wildling / Free Folking it up. Just completely abandoned his life as a Stark, wild as can be, and RUTHLESS in his fighting style. And Jon Snow or Bran being like “???????”
