i have so much hope on rickon

So I guess based on the leaked photos the first thing happening next season is Daenerys and Jon becoming allies. Wow! What a shock after Tyrion’s speech about how she would find love again and her replying with having to go to the 7 kingdoms while marrying into an alliance.

Poor her, willing to sacrifice herself to a marriage. Luckily though the only one there that will be able to marry her because they share the same views and he is basically the only male leader left is nice, goodlooking king Jon.

Now who would’ve guessed that? It’s almost as much of a coincidence as Daenerys’ hair never catching fire, or her never getting closer than a mile from actual danger or death, or any other plot armor she has been getting since season 2. Lucky her!

While Arya will be a crazy murderer according to the show writers, Sansa will for whatever reason actually team up with Littlefinger(?!), Bran will not get his birthright of Winterfell and will just be used as a way of giving the audience info, Rickon has died stupidly, Ramsay got beaten to pulp and then eaten by hounds, Margery couldn’t find a way to save herself even though she was one of the most clever people in the 7 kingdoms, and Tywin who was a genius himself got killed on a toilet. It’s just so much bad luck.

Now at least we have Daenerys to make up for all that bad luck since she can’t seem to get any on this show.

But in all seriousness I was hoping the last 2 seasons would at least look like or resemble the actual story (asoiaf). But if the writers are gonna go on making the show into DanyParadiseAndFuckAnyOtherCharacter TM then I’ll find something better to do. Every other character has had some of the most shittiest stuff happen throughout all the seasons but Daenerys hasn’t gotten anything past season 1 (season 1 was actually written according to the books). Yes D&D, I know she’s your favorite character, that still doesn’t mean I want her shoved down my throat with every opportunity you get.

I just realized that Sansa & Jon’s reactions to Rickon’s death are even worse when you compare it to their reactions to Robb’s death. 

Jon tried running to Robb and Rickon. It wasn’t like Robb was right there when Jon was running, but he tried leaving Castle Black, he thought “I belong with my brother” and he wanted to protect him and fight by his brother’s side, and he was stopped from riding to Robb. When he learned of Robb’s death, maybe he even flashed back to that moment, wondered if his presence could have changed anything. When he  And then he had a chance to physically save his youngest brother, he was so close, and he had so much hope, only for it to get snatched away at the last second. He had a chance, he got to be present and it still didn’t matter, his brother still died. 

And Sansa. We know how much hope she had in Robb. She flat out told Joffrey that Robb would bring her his head. Whenever she was hurting, she’d tell herself to be strong, and she thought to herself, “Robb will kill you all.” She had so much hope and faith in her brother, even when nothing else was hopeful in her life, and then he died and that last piece of hope went away. Sansa’s said it herself - no one can protect her, that she can’t rely on anyone, and she also said that Rickon was as good as dead. I saw a few people say she didn’t care but that’s not true - she hoped that one brother would win once, and she wasn’t about to do it again. She accepted Rickon’s death as a real possibility and after it happened, she still looked angry and hurt because that’s still her little brother’s body laying before her. 

Just seeing these two and thinking of how Robb’s death factored into their emotions when it came to saving Rickon hurts way too much.
