“I was the oldest,” the prince said, “and yet I am the last. After Mors and Olyvar died in their cradles, I gave up hope of brothers. I was nine when Elia came, a squire in service at Salt Shore. When the raven arrived with word that my mother had been brought to bed a month too soon, I was old enough to understand that meant the child would not live. Even when Lord Gargalen told me that I had a sister, I assured him that she must shortly die. Yet she lived, by the Mother’s mercy. And a year later Oberyn arrived, squalling and kicking. I was a man grown when they were playing in these pools. Yet here I sit, and they are gone.”

When Winter comes, you’ll hear no lions roar.

No stags grazing the fields, 

No roses growing in the meadows,

No snakes in the sand.

The krakens will freeze where they swim,

The flayed men will rot and wither.

No trouts swimming in the river

And no falcons fliying in the air.

Not even the dragons breath will warm you in your halls.


Only the wolves howl in the night,

And you’ll know Winter is coming.


One day the wolves will come again.

Let the southerners have their fairy tales and summers.

We northerners have home.

For the north remembers my friend.


The north remembers.


Westeros Capitals + Claude Monet.

“This talk of Seven Kingdoms is a folly. Aegon saw that three hundred years ago when he stood where we are standing. They painted this table at his command. Rivers and bays they painted, hills and mountains, castles and cities and market towns, lakes and swamps and forests … but no borders. It is all one. One realm, for one king to rule alone.”

↳   I want to bring those, who have wronged me, to justice. And all those, who have wronged me, are right here. I will begin with Ser Gregor Clegane, who killed my sister’s children and then raped her, with their blood still on his hands, before killing her too. I will be your champion.”



AU - Rhaegar and Aerys die during Robert’s Rebellion, but the loyalist forces win. Elia Martell is crowned Queen Of The Seven Kingdoms and her reign becomes the golden age of Westeros.
