Book version moments (2/?) | Robb arrives at The Twins for Edmure and Roslin’s marriage

His mouth split in a toothless smile as he eyed Robb’s crown. “Some would say it’s a poor king who crowns himself with bronze, Your Grace.

Bronze and iron are stronger than gold and silver,” Robb answered. “The old Kings of Winter wore such a sword-crown.” ― Catelyn VI, A Storm of Swords.

Robb Imagine...

IMAGINE…being the granddaughter to Walder Frey and being chosen as Lady Catelyn’s ward and Robb Stark’s betrothed.

((Just a little something short that came to mind as I try to get back into the swing of writing for this fandom!))

Warning: None

You were in the hall when Lady Catelyn was brought in to speak to your grandfather. You watched her closely. Wondering why the Lady of Winterfell, the wife to the Hand of the King, and the daughter to your grandfather’s liege lord was standing there begging something from the “Late” Walder Frey. You were given your answer just moments after. You weren’t too surprised. You did your best to remain away from everyone else at the Twins, meaning you missed out on all the gossip of the Seven Kingdoms.

Robb Stark + text posts

A speculative hill that I am willing to die on: that Sansa will interact with certain Freys during her time in the Vale. Likely at the Tourney for the Brotherhood of the Winged Knights, but also afterwards. Namely:

  • Maester Willamen, especially since the plot point of old Lord Hunter’s murder and House Hunter’s succession was something mentioned by Littlefinger.
  • Cynthea Frey, nine years old, a ward of Lady Anya Waynwood (just like Harry is, hmm). As her mother’s a Waynwood, she might be Anya’s granddaughter or niece.
  • Sandor Frey, Cynthea’s brother, twelve years old, squire of Lady Anya’s son Ser Donnel – and note Alayne has already met Anya’s son Wallace and grandson Roland.

I mean, I don’t know what’s going to happen… but look, GRRM wouldn’t put a boy of Sansa’s age named Sandor, of House Frey, of Crakehall blood (and therefore probably huge like his first cousin Little Walder) in a situation like this if he weren’t planning something. Seriously.

Bolton Family Thanksgiving...

(To the anon who requested it, I hope you like it. And I hope it’s…kind of what you wanted! I need to get back into writing more Ramsay and Roose haha. Sorry if it just seems to end abruptly at the end. I didn’t really know what to do with it but I knew i wanted to write something…))

Awkward. Completely awkward.

That’s the only way you knew how to describe the situation you currently found yourself in.

Instead of being back at your own apartment with Ramsay where the two of you could have been fucking or getting high, you and your boyfriend were seated across the table from his father and step-mother eating Thanksgiving dinner.

What Amerei Frey, Lancel Lannister’s new wife would wear, J Mendal

Amerei is the eldest daughter of Merrett Frey and Mariya Darry, she is known for her promiscuity, which has earned her the nickname Gatehouse Ami, as “she will raise her portcullis for any knight who passes by”

After the Red Wedding Amerei is married to Lancel Lannister, the new Lord of Darry, in order to ease the change of allegiance of the Freys to the Lannisters. However this is after Lancel decides to become a devout servant of the seven. Lancel shows no interest in either his wife or his lands, or that Amerei is most likely continuing her promiscuous ways even after her marriage.

creed-88  asked:

In the answered question about reasons to break a betrothal, you sited Robb and Arya's betrothals to the Frey's. I thought in when the renegotiated after Robb married that Arya was still betrothed to Elmer Frey? Can the Frey's use this if she shows back up in Westeros even with Ramsey married to the fake Arya?

On her way to the godswood, she passed the Wailing Tower where once she had lived in fear of Weese. The Freys had taken it for their own since Harrenhal’s fall. She could hear angry voices coming from a window, many men talking and arguing all at once. Elmar was sitting on the steps outside, alone.
“What’s wrong?” Arya asked him when she saw the tears shining on his cheeks.
“My princess,” he sobbed. “We’ve been dishonored, Aenys says. There was a bird from the Twins. My lord father says I’ll need to marry someone else, or be a septon.”
A stupid princess, she thought, that’s nothing to cry over. “My brothers might be dead,” she confided.
Elmar gave her a scornful look. “No one cares about a serving girl’s brothers.”
It was hard not to hit him when he said that. “I hope your princess dies,” she said, and ran off before he could grab her.

–ACOK, Arya X

Bolton lifted a pale finger toward his cupbearer. “Though my poor Elmar is bereft. He was to wed Arya Stark, but my good father of Frey had no choice but to break the betrothal when King Robb betrayed him.”
“Is there word of Arya Stark?” Brienne leaned forward. “Lady Catelyn had feared that… is the girl still alive?”
“Oh, yes,” said the Lord of the Dreadfort.
“You have certain knowledge of that, my lord?”
Roose Bolton shrugged. “Arya Stark was lost for a time, it was true, but now she has been found. I mean to see her returned safely to the north.”
“Her and her sister both,” said Brienne. “Tyrion Lannister has promised us both girls for his brother.”
That seemed to amuse the Lord of the Dreadfort. “My lady, has no one told you? Lannisters lie.”

–ASOS, Jaime V

Note the Jaime chapter was 14 chapters before the Red Wedding, but several after the Catelyn chapter where the Freys negotiated Edmure’s wedding. Also note that Roose is amused because Tywin has already promised him Arya for Ramsay, as one of the rewards for betraying Robb. He’s doubly amused because he knows it’s a falsified Arya, but he’s willing to take the Lannister lie to help prop up his future rule as Lord Paramount of the North.

The Freys made no mention whatsoever of Arya when Edmure’s wedding was negotiated. Whether that’s because they believed that Arya was dead (as Robb did), or whether they were already aware of the reward Roose Bolton would be getting for his part in the Red Wedding, it really doesn’t matter. Roose has a small host of Freys in Winterfell for Ramsay’s wedding to “Arya”, and nothing Theon sees suggests that any are complaining that it should have been Elmar getting her instead. (Elmar isn’t even mentioned anywhere in the books after that Jaime chapter, except for the appendixes.)

Besides, even if the Freys did try to enforce the betrothal contract on Arya… like, what could they possibly say? “Your mother, some months before we slit her throat and threw her naked into the river, said you were to marry Elmar. You gotta, no backsies.” I mean, seriously? As if any ruling Stark would give this “contract” with a family who betrayed them and murdered Robb and Catelyn even a blink’s worth of consideration. As if Arya would ever. As if there’s even going to be enough Freys left to tell Arya this, after Lady Stoneheart gets through with them.
