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 tojoin 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”.
Arya is like Lyanna, but she’s like a dark version of her (because of killings and faceless man’s talents she has) and Gendry is like better Robert (no whoring, less cruel).
And while Robert was attracted to Lyanna, who didn’t really like him because of whoring and things, Arya has a crush on Gendry, who probably considers her child.
And while Robert met Lyanna as a noble girl from Winterfell, Gendry met Arya as lowborn boy, and both Robert and Gendry met Ned first, and than the girls.
Robert and Lyanna lived like noble people, and Arya and Gendry lived in the forest for some time, hiding from the nobles (Lannisters).. Both couples visited Harrenhal, as you know for very different reasons. Robert and Lyanna were there because of the tournament, Arya and Gendry were captured by Lannister soldiers.
And LOL Robert was jealous of Rhaegar there, and guess what:
Reminder that Robert Baratheon did nothing wrong. Rhaegar Targaryen started the war when he kidnapped Lyanna, don’t matter what the show says, it’s bullshit. Rhaegar was a 24 full grown man with a wife and two children who ran away with a 14 year old girl who was engaged with the Lord of Storm’s End. The war started because Rhaegar couldn’t keep his dick in his pants and the whole realm bled because of that.
He insulted his House, House Stark, House Baratheon and House Martell, he was nothing but an asshole.
