"Could I maybe please pet your wolf?"

[ @outlawerofbeets ]

          truth be told, the bastard feels sorry for little Tommen — he’s not to blame for the family he has. a father who’s everything a king should not be, a mother who’s a walking cube of a ice, a brother who’s nothing short of a little shit, and— …well, Myrcella is also a SWEET girl, or looks to be anyway. Jon won’t be surprised if, at this point, she’s made friends with Sansa and Jeyne and Beth and has revealed herself as just as empty inside, regardless. but the youngest prince, he’s ADORABLE enough and Jon does quite enjoy the company of children — growing up as the (almost) oldest sibling contributed to such outcome. smiling at the very polite request, then —for, at the end of the day, Tommen is royalty and he himself is nothing but illegitimate blood, and yet the young boy shows himself more courteous than the rest of Robert’s party put together—, he promptly complies && calls over his WOLF PUP, squatting by Tommen’s side as he holds Ghost out to him.

‘ do not be surprised if he makes no noise — it’s just the way he is. 


asoiaf meme (minor characters): 7/8 relationships ~ ellyn reyne and jeyne marbrand

Ellyn Reyne, now Lady Tarbeck, departed Casterly Rock with her husband, never to return, but the rivalry between her and Lady Jeyne was not at an end. If anything, it seemed to intensify through what Lord Toad came to call the War of the Wombs. Though Lady Ellyn had not been able to give Ser Tion an heir, she proved more fertile with Walderan Tarbeck (who, it should be noted, had a number of older sons from his first two marriages), giving him two daughters and a son. Lady Jeyne answered with children of her own, the first of whom was a son. // meryem uzerli as ellyn reyne, leyla feray as jeyne marbrand

anonymous asked:

Is there any significance of Sansa not flinching at the sight of men in pain during the Hand's Tourney unlike Jeyne?

Sansa’s trying to be ever so grown up in Sansa II, AGoT, and grown-up ladies don’t react to men getting hurt in tourneys.

Jeyne covered her eyes whenever a man fell, like a frightened little girl, but Sansa was made of sterner stuff. A great lady knew how to behave at tournaments.

Sansa is totally a great lady. Or she will be, anyway. However, this thought is immediately undercut by

Even Septa Mordane noted her composure and nodded in approval.

So we see that she’s got very little idea why it is that composure is valued, but mimics this behaviour in a search for adult validation. As Sandor Clegane accuses her at the end of the chapter, 

“You’re like one of those birds from the Summer Isles, aren’t you? A pretty little talking bird, repeating all the pretty words they taught you to recite.”

Compare this to Sansa’s interaction with Sandor at the end of the chapter. With the romantic dream of the tourney and her prince shattered, Sansa then flinches at the sight of Sandor’s burns, evidence of a man in pain - but she sees them anyway, and learns the truth behind them. And instead of the distant, abstracted sadness she felt over Ser Hugh’s death, we get this:

She was sad for him, she realised. Somehow, the fear had gone away.

The silence went on and on, so long that she grew afraid once more, but she was afraid for him now, not for herself. She found his massive shoulder with her hand. “He was no true knight,” she whispered to him.

The significance of Sansa’s not flinching is in the contrast. That was the childish behaviour, while her mastering her fear of Sandor to give him comfort was the action of a great lady, who knows how to behave at tournaments.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: game of thrones has become a horrible, non-canonical, misogynistic fan fiction of ASOIAF, D&D are completely obliterating the plotlines of the characters we love and leaving them with husks of their former selves doing totally OOC things that will probably have disastrous effects on the coming seasons, and offering us disgusting rapes and sexist tropes and child burnings for shock value to make up for cut story arcs that were actually important and good and meaningful, i want Shireen safe at the Wall and Arianne and Jeyne Poole and Barristan Selmy alive and Griff and Young Griff and SANSA IN THE VALE. GODS WHY IS SANSA NOT IN THE VALE EATING LEMON CAKES. I THOUGHT THE WORST THAT WOULD HAPPEN TO HER THIS SEASON WAS SOME UNWANTED KISSING FROM BAELISH BUT I WAS SO WRONG. SO WRONG.
