I had never considered this! Thanks for explaining!
You’re very welcome! I had seen several theories suggesting Sweetrobin was being poisoned due to him complaining about something tasting vile in his milk, which always boggled me – because sweetsleep is a poison! That he claims “unsweetened” milk tastes nasty is either due to petulance or a side-effect of the drug.

I’ll bet you do. But if you’d read the post I linked, you would see that the theory the “controversial Sansa chapter” of TWOW would include her poisoning Sweetrobin (often theorized it would be on purpose; also theorized were rape and pedophilia and all kinds of horrible things) turned out to be baseless when that chapter was released and nothing of the sort happened in it whatsoever. And it turned out that the original description of it being “controversial” was due to the fact that Sansa flirts with a boy in it and thus the “controversy” was incredibly overblown and all the theorizing about the horrible things that would happen to Sansa (or that Sansa would do) in that first chapter of TWOW had no basis. Again, that’s all laid out in the post I linked. (Look, I’ve linked it here again. Three times now.)
Is it possible that Sansa could still accidentally poison her cousin later in the book due to the fact she doesn’t know sweetsleep is a poison? Sure, and I didn’t say it couldn’t happen. But the theory that it would happen because Elio Garcia called her first TWOW chapter “controversial” has no basis.

I doubt that Sweetrobbin dying of sweetsleep poisoning will lead to LFs
or Sansa’s downfall. FIrst of all, everyone knows that Sweetrobin is
sickly and by bribing/ threatening a maester it will be easy to have his
death declared a result of his disease. Second of all, LF could easily
shift the blame on the maester. As for Alayne, unless someone throws her
under the bus, she won’t be blamed. After all, she’s just a sweet,
innocent girl who doesn’t know anything about the medicine and it’s
risks and was only trying to take care of sweet, sweet Robin whom she
loved so dearly and took care of after his mother died so tragically.
And when she saw that the medicine helped the poor boy, and when his
young lordship demand it - well, how can anyone blame her for asking the
maester for more?
You are Littlefinger and I claim my five pounds.
(OK, ok it’s possible it could go that way… but this is Sansa, y’know? The day everything works out for her as planned I’ll be very happy, but it’ll probably be the end of the series.)
