“He’s turned against me too, Theon realized. Of late it seemed to him as if the very stones of Winterfell had turned against him. If I die, I die friendless and abandoned. What choice did that leave him, but to live?”
Be quiet, Theon, be quiet! What is wrong with you? STOP IT! I have never in my life yelled at a boy like this! When my mother yells like this it’s because she loves me! I was rooting for you, we were ALL rooting for you, how DARE you? Learn something from this. When you go to bed at night, you lay there and you take responsibility for yourself, ‘cause nobody’s gonna take responsibility for you. You rolling your eyes and you acting like this because you’ve heard it all before. You don’t know where the hell I come from! You have no idea what I’ve been through! But I’m not a victim, I grow from it and I LEARN. Take responsibility for yourself!
