house stark feels


Beautifully done! And the song is perfect!!!

When Arya and Gendry reunite i hope it is beautiful and emotional and happy and sad all at once because fuck they deserve it. They haven’t seen eachother since s3 and they 1. left on a pretty bad note which was heartbreaking and 2. Arya probably thinks the red woman killed Gendry and Gendry probably knows now about Arya being kidnapped by the Hound. 

Firstly, I hope she sees him and Jon separately first because we deserve two separate reunions for each of them. And secondly, I legit pray that the genius sound people combine the Stark and Baratheon themes when they finally see each other bc that would be fuckin great.

I hope Gendry sees Arya first (before she sees him) and i really want her to be fighting someone with Needle or just generally being a badass bc he last saw her as a young girl pretending to be a boy and now she’s what, 16 or 17?? I want him to be in shock at this tiny girl he last saw is now, still pretty small, but a woman and a badass one at that.

When Arya sees Gendry i want her to freeze and be in total shock bc this dude who was probably her closest friend in life who she thinks she would never see again is standing right in front of her. But instead of an immediate hug and all that, i really want her just to fucking sock him right on the jaw lol. He was going to leave her to join the Brotherhood back in s3 and she was pretty pissed off/upset about that. But after she has punched him and his initial shock i want them to just stare at each other both with tears in their eyes with their themes in the backroud and have a Jon and Sansa style hug. Arya is still a lot smaller than Gendry so my fuckin shipper heart wants him to lift her off the ground with her arms tightly around his neck and then whisper something like “m’lady”

I’m Tried of all the anti-arya from show-watchers, D&D took her story and destroyed it. Let me remind everyone of important things they left out

  • The toddler she saves and takes care of even when the boys want to leave her
  • Being threatened with rape multiple times 
  • Learning actual skills from the House of Black and White along with a friendship-ish with the waif
  • Her enslavement and beatings while at Harrenhal
  • The beating that Yoren gave her for fighting with Lommy and Hot Pie
  • Jaime going to kill Arya for Cersie
  • Jeyne Poole teasing Arya about how Mycah died
  • The guilt Arya felt about Mycah’s death
  • Thinking her mother wold not pay her ransom
  • Being called Horse Face or Arya Underfoot
  • Wanting to go back and save Sansa, of actually thinking about her sister in a positive light
  • The jealousy she felt towards Sansa
  • Cat saving Sam
  • Loving nothing more than sitting at her fathers table
  • Is actually a crier 
  • Her fascination with courtesans 
  • She’s good at math
  • She would play with low born children and make up names for babies
  • Bran was better at a sword than she was
  • She’s too small to use Anguy’s bow
  • Even after what the Lannisters and Freys have done to her family she has not put whole houses on her list
  • She has not been the cause of death for a good amount of people on her list 
  • She figure out how to warg into cats by herself 
  • She shares her rabbit with Gendry and he becomes her BFF
  • She and Edric Dayne become friends (Gendry got jealous)
  • She hears Ned’s voice talking to her at Harrenhal 

They’re acting like Arya is the same person she was when she left Winterfell 7 seasons ago. Like she is still a petulant little girl fighting with her sister. She has gone through 7 seasons of unspeakable trauma including watching multiple family members die. She went through a tremendous struggle to reclaim her identity as a Stark. Through it all was the notion of a “pack” that drove her character.

“The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives”

After King’s Landing and the Red Wedding she had become the lone wolf and had lost her pack. There was a hole in her heart where her family had been that was so painful she thought would never ever heal. It was too painful to be Arya Stark and remember what it was like to have a family, to be part of a pack, to be loved and protected. She tried to find family again with Gendry, Hot Pie, even the Hound to a point, but she couldn’t find it.

She defended her pack, even if she wasn’t with them. Every action she took was to avenge the wrongs done to her pack, or to find her way back to them. She sees herself as a protector of her pack. She goes after anyone who wronged them. That is why she has her list.

It was easier after all the trauma she endured to not be Arya Stark anymore, to throw away her identity and be No One.

But she couldn’t.

Because of Needle, which was Jon Snow’s smile. Because of the snow melting in Robb’s hair as they left Winterfell. Because of her father smiling down at her, the wolf blood, Bran and Rickon, her mother, and the girl she had known a million years ago who had loved lemon cakes.

This was her pack. Try as she might to fight it and bury the pain that came with this identity she couldn’t be No One.

Arya recognizes more than anyone the importance of family. Her experiences have done nothing but to strengthen this bond with them.

For D&D to insinuate that Arya would antagonize and threaten to kill one of the 3 remaining members of her pack, the most important thing in the world for her, is an insult to her character.

you are my sunshine

my only sunshine

you make me happy when skies are grey

you’ll never know dear, how much i love you

please don’t take my sunshine away

….why do i do this to myself…

“Let me tell you something about wolves, child. When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives. Summer is the time for squabbles. In winter, we must protect one another, keep each other warm, share our strengths. So if you must hate, Arya, hate those who would truly do us harm. Septa Mordane is a good woman, and Sansa…Sansa is your sister. You may be as different as the sun and the moon, but the same blood flows through both your hearts. You need her, as she needs you…and I need both of you, gods help me.”

The northern girl. Winterfell’s daughter.

sansa stark + motifs and themes | the north / home / house stark

anonymous asked:

Hi! So I came across (several) posts stating how Sansa is "removed" from everything Northern and how Lady's death means she's less of a Stark and that she doesn't fit in the North arc as her arc is completely different from her siblings (which is magical),the Northerners won't accept her,SR destroying snow castle means she'll never return to WF etc. My question: Do you think Sansa will return North? Do you think she'll ever reunite w/ her siblings and stay in WF? Thanks

Oh yes, to both questions. Easily. I’d also say Sansa will be the first Stark to cross the gates into Winterfell and it’s quite possible she’ll serve as a focal or rallying point for her siblings.

As for the rest, Sansa suffers from a negative POV bias in the first book, and honestly, I’m often left with the feeling that the old adage is true, first impressions matter. I’m not going to get into the narrative structure of Sansa’s chapters or character in this but we can tackle the rest of it.

I’ll go through those comments, point by point, below. This is long because I don’t know how to shut up.

Keep reading

the pact of ice and fire

The dragons are about to dance again, so another pact is to be made, to be sealed and last

It will bring the Dawn and set a fire to light away the Long Night’s darkness

No men can stop these two souls from meeting in a mist of love and hate

Theirs is the song of ice and fire,

 and to their hearts belongs the world’s fate

Maester Luwin and Hodor

I just wanted to point out that Maester Luwin is maybe the only character in the series to talk about the dignity of a mentally challenged person like Hodor. I literally tear up when he gets heated about the way the Walders treat him, and they way he admonishes Bran by reminding him that Hodor is a man and not an animal. You just rarely see that kind of thing in any fiction, and it chokes me up that Luwin recognizes and champions Hodor’s humanity. Luwin ain’t got no time for your ableist bullshit. Even in this slightly exaggerated, qausi-medieval world, there’s someone who is willing to speak up for the differently abled and mentally challenged. Luwin should get more credit for this.

Thumbs up of the writer who had the idea of making this scene. The moment Jon Snow says he’s not a Stark, a freaking dragon flies over his head.

AND to make it even more epic, it was Rheagal, fucking RHEAGAL!!!!!!!! (My screenshot sucks but feel free to rewatch this amazing moment)

*foams from the mouth at this beautiful yet subtle reference do his lineage*
