We talk a lot about Gendry being the “looks tough but is actually a sweetheart” to Arya’s “looks cute but will stab you in the face,” and there’s an element of truth to that (he stands up to bullies! He protects orphan children!), but don’t forget that Gendry is a certified badass in his own right. He’s an outlaw knight at the age of 15, he’s fought in battles and killed people, he sassed Ned Stark, Hand of the King, as a poor 14-year-old orphan apprentice boy.
Give me more love for Arya and Gendry as Westeros’s #1 murdery power couple please and thank you
