I’m Arya Stark of Winterfell. Daughter of Ned and Catelyn Stark. I have an annoying sister, Sansa. I have three brothers, Robb, Bran and Rickon. I have a half brother, Jon. And I used to have a direwolf, Nymeria.
So many vows…they make you swear and swear. Defend the king. Obey the king. Keep his secrets. Do his bidding. Your life for his. But obey your father. Love your sister. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. Respect the gods. Obey the laws. It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or the other.
