Jon x Sansa Parallels with William and Mary of England

William was two years older than Mary. Jon and Sansa have a three year or soage gap.

William and Mary were first cousins. Jon x Sansa are first cousins.

Mary was his maternal uncle’s daughter. Ned Stark is Jon’s maternal uncle.

Island Nation on the west loyal to his opponent- Yara is currently team Stannis to some degree.

Mary brought up in a different religion (Anglicanism) than her father (Catholicism)- Sansa follows the new gods more than the old (until recently).

Mary taught mostly “music, dance, drawing, French, and religious instruction”(Wikipedia). Sansa is also mostly taught to be a lady.

Mary was passionately obsessed with Frances Apsley, an older girl in her court (Aka Margaery Tyrell).

Mary initially didn’t want the marriage but fell in love with her husband later, which is how many imagine Jon x Sansa will be.

William was a warrior and often on campaign; Jon is a strong warrior.

Mary and her sister purportedly did not get along but still love each other; Sansa and Arya don’t get along often but still love each other.

I've heard people claim that Jon violated his vows to the Watch when he dealt with Ramsey's letter. But I don't think he did. The Lord Commander got a threatening letter demanding that he give up his guests or be attacked. That's not something the Watch can/should ignore. No matter what Jon did at the point, he would be seen as interfering. Either giving up Stannis family (and siding with the Boltons) or doing what he did.

And why did he receive the Pink Letter? Why was the Watch ever in danger from Ramsay? Because Jon sent Mance south to save his beloved sister from a monster…or that’s how he thinks about it, anyway. For his fellow crows, what happened was that the Lord Commander unleashed the unrepentant raider who tried to invade the North, the man their brothers died to defend the North from, on the North, in order to blatantly interfere with the realm’s politics by kidnapping the bride of the Warden’s son, because she’s family. Which is most certainly oath-breaking in both letter and spirit, and Jon’s response is not to engage in the slightest bit of self-reflection, but to double down. Not only does he intend to march against Ramsay, but he intends on sending the bulk of the crows to what would almost certainly be their deaths at Hardhome. Who, exactly, is going to be defending Castle Black should the Others arrive? Jon’s completely lost sight of his central mission. Now, it’s for relatable and sympathetic reasons, which is what makes it compelling drama (that, and that Jon’s journey to the walk away is structured perfectly in ADWD, and that the writing itself is top-shelf throughout). But it’s still a failure on his part.

I’m sure plenty of crows have sisters they care about who are endangered by the war. Do they all get to send a special ops team to the rescue? Then why is it OK for Jon to do it? Because he’s the Chosen One? Nope, says GRRM. (Don’t get me started on how thoroughly the show fucked this arc up.) Ramsay is the one with casus belli here; unlike in the show (there I go again), the Boltons never intended to mess with Ned Stark’s bastard, not until he messed with them. Of course, that doesn’t make them less monstrous as people! But while Jon’s ends are noble, his means are unacceptable for someone with his duties, and again, constitute an abandonment of said duties. It’s the human heart in conflict with itself, and this internal struggle is the primary reason Jon’s ADWD arc is my favorite of the larger storylines (say, double-digit chapters) in the series. 

Finally, when Jon decides to ride south against Ramsay, he’s not thinking about defending the Watch, nor Stannis’ family. He’s thinking about Winterfell. He’s thinking about his family. He’s even thinking about Ygritte, because Jon’s politics have become utterly consumed by the personal. It’s IMO some of the best writing in the series, perhaps Jon’s defining moment as a character to date:

Jon flexed the fingers of his sword hand. The Night’s Watch takes no part. He closed his fist and opened it again. What you propose is nothing less than treason. He thought of Robb, with snowflakes melting in his hair. Kill the boy and let the man be born. He thought of Bran, clambering up a tower wall, agile as a monkey. Of Rickon’s breathless laughter. Of Sansa, brushing out Lady’s coat and singing to herself. You know nothing, Jon Snow. He thought of Arya, her hair as tangled as a bird’s nest. I made him a warm cloak from the skins of the six whores who came with him to Winterfell … I want my bride back … I want my bride back … I want my bride back …

“I think we had best change the plan,” Jon Snow said.

How many times were the Stark siblings told to go North to their “brother” Jon Snow for protection?

I find it funny that as ill as Jon was treated and mocked as a “bastard” his whole life, at the end of the day, those same people knew he would be the one to protect his siblings at all cost.

Can someone gif everytime a Stark was told to go North to Jon? I would, but have no idea how to do that. Hehe. 😘


“Jon.” You say surprised as he comes in your bedroom.
A sad shine is in his eyes as he sits down on your bedside.
“(Y/N).” Jon whispers, pulling you on his lap and you swallow hard. “I’m sorry, but I have to go.”
“It’s ok.”
Tears swim in your eyes as you bury your face in the crook of his neck. His black curls tickles your face as a quiet sob leaves your throat and Jon wraps his arms around you. Softly he strokes over your back, holding you tight while you cry.
“Tomorrow morning.” Jon responds, wiping the tears from your cheeks.
“Do you stay with me the night?”
Instead of an answer Jon kisses you. His lips moving slowly against yours while you slip your hands under his shirt, wanting him to feel one last time. The kiss becomes more passionate as Jon’s tongue slides in your mouth.
You moan after he pulled your shirt over the head and kisses now the skin on your chest. Desire builds in your lower stomach as he opens your bra and sucks your nipples in his mouth.
“Jon.” You whisper excited as he turns you both around and he pulls down your skirt and panties.
Your eyes fall shut as Jon spreads your legs and he kisses your inner thighs up to your wet folds. Gently Jon licks through your slit before he takes your clit in his mouth, licking and sucking it.
As you tug Jon’s hair to pull him closer a quiet moan leaves his mouth, sending you over the edge. Small intense waves of pleasure shoots through your body and as you look down his lust blown eyes meet yours.
Before he bends down to you, Jon straightens up to undresses himself. You both moan into each other mouthes as his hard erection presses against your core.
“Please.” You beg against his mouth.
Centimeter by centimeter he enters you, holding still as he completly fills you out.
“(Y/N).” Jon moans as you stroke over his back, encouraging him to move.
Slowly, but forceful he starts thrusting in you, wanting to take his time with you.
The sex feels different, more intense and more like a goodbye.
Again tears falling down your face which Jon kisses away while he moves faster.
The knot in your lower stomach rebuilds and you buckle your hips to feel him deeper in you.
“Jon.” You whimper as you find your sweet release.
Your walls clench down around his twitching cock and he spills his hot arousal deep inside you.
Exhausted he slides out of you and falls next to on the bed.
“Come here.” Jon says and you snuggle up to his chest while he wraps an arm around your back.
“I love you.” You whisper, listening to his strong heartbeat.
“I know.” He responds, kissing you on the top of your head. “I love you, too.”
The whole night he holds you in his arms, stroking over your back and placing kisses all over your face until you fall asleep.
As you wake up the next morning Jon is gone and even when you can’t hold back a sob, you know that you’ll see him again.

King. Cousin. Leader. Lover.

The wolves have come again, from the banners on Winterfell’s walls to the roaring pack outside the castle’s gates. Bran speaks to the trees, tracing the movements of their strange enemy as the Others approach the Wall. Arya prepares for battle with the Valyrian steel sword, Dark Sister. 

And Sansa stands at Jon’s side, preparing the castle and its people for the winter that has reached them. His ardent supporters doubt her place there, but what is an alpha wolf without his lady? Her council is the the first he seeks for every issue. She is the one he turns to as the nights turn colder. Wrapped in sheets or sitting at the high table, it makes no difference. He is her cousin and her commander, she loves him and she will follow him wherever he asks her to go.

Trust bloomed in a barren garden of salted earth, and the plants grow fresh for the first time in years. Each brush of Jon’s skin against her own sends ripples through her, each commanding word spurs her on. They are equal in all things, even in their command of one another, and together they will see them all through this long night.

I feel extremely confused as to why Jon keeps on having dreams of the stone kings telling him he doesn‘t belong down there. By all accounts, he’s Lyanna’s son, so he’s a Stark as well, by blood. And if the theory of Rhaegar’s arp being in Lyanna’s grave is true, wouldn’t they be calling him in?

I think maybe it’s just meant to be a sign as to who he’s fathered by. The people that end up in the Stark crypts are usually (I’m not sure if there has been a historical exception) fathered by a Stark. And though Lyanna may be Jon’s mother, Rhaegar is his father. If Jon had been raised with his father’s family as I’m sure Rhaegar intended, he would have been cremated upon death in the style of most deceased Targaryens.

Jon’s dreams feel like a message from the old gods to me. I don’t know if there has to be anything down there for the significance to remain. I certainly don’t think Rhaegar’s harp is down there. What would be the point in that? If there is something tangible in the crypts that could reveal Jon’s parentage, I would assume it’s something from Lyanna. She was actually important to Ned, and the mystery of his mother is something that has consistently plagued Jon throughout the story. If he’s getting an heirloom or trinket from either of his biological parents, it’s from Lyanna.
