Even in Winterfell, as a kid before the wolves, Jon was the bastard. He was the odd one out. The rest of them are all brothers and sisters. He’s only a half-brother, so he’s not as closely tied to them … So he’s of them, he’s part of the family, he’s part of the siblings, but he’s a little bit apart too. Ghost is very similar to that. He’s the albino, he’s the one who makes no noise, so he’s related to the other direwolves but one apart as well
It was only a castle when she began, but before very long Sansa knew it was Winterfell. Soon her gloves and her boots were crusty white, her hands were tingling, and her feet were soaked and cold, but she did not care. The castle was all that mattered. Some things were hard to remember, but most came back to her easily, as if she had been there only yesterday.
