“No doubt you’ve been wondering. You’d been waiting all year to see if I’d return. Well, you’ve nothing to fear. Night falls once again, and the wind howls through. It’s me, Dr. Junkenstein, and, oh, how I’ve been waiting for you.”
What’s up everyone? Today we’re going to talk about these two amazing ladies; Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark.
With the Jonerys ship taking off (literally), I see A LOT of hate going and back and forth between the Jonerys and Jonsa shippers. There’s quite a bit of speculation that Sansa is going to be angry with Jon for giving up the North and that her and Dany will never get along. Well I’m here today to tell you that I think Sansa and Dany will get past whatever early on strifes there may be, because in reality, they’re not as different as it may seem.
So, let’s remove Jon from the equation and appreciate each woman for who they are on their own and some of the similarities they share.
Daenerys: Started off as a young, pretty, timid, and naive girl who just wanted to go home.
Sansa: Started of as a young, pretty, timid, and naive girl who just wanted to be loved.

Sansa: Lost both of her parents.

***BONUS** Both are beautiful fire princesses and snow queens.
Please stop putting these two against each other just because you can’t agree on which one of them you ship Jon with. Yes, they are very different individuals, but deep down they have more similarities than you might think. I hope D&D does these two justice and allows them to form a friendship.
And yes I ship Jonerys, but I still love Sansa and will always appreciate her as a strong character.
