Margaery and Willas, she’s about eight and in my head-cannon she would always run to Willas when Loras would practice in the training yard because he would always make time to read to her or just pay attention to her while their brothers focused on their martial pursuits.
He looks too pretty, like Loras, but Loras has lighter hair like Margaery and Willas is in his wiry stage from after the accident, he bulks up a little afterward at Garlans insistence.
A little gift for you, Lauren, for taking such an interest in one of the members of the “dead ladies club”.
This is Joanna after marriage, but pre-twins, flaunting her wealth with a cloth of gold petticoat and collar. If I had the patience and skill to draw it, the red fabric would have looked something like this, embroidered with gold and jewels:
Oh my gosh, thank you! This is so beautiful! Her dress has such an interesting neckline, and I love the design you suggested for the fabric, it’s perfect! Gorgeous! Thank you!! 💕
1. Not Jaqen/Not Pate = Assuming that he is the same person since the
moment that he was imprisoned in the Black Cells, what was he doing
We do not know. It is a mystery. Some think he might have been assigned to kill Ned, and therefore got himself imprisoned to accompany Ned to the Wall and kill him on the way – but that raises multiple questions, such as who would have hired him, and why so oblique a strategy (if he was assigned to kill Ned, there were much better and easier ways of getting to him) that depends on such presentism (as it was obviously not known that Ned would be going to the Wall at the time Ned gave Yoren permission to take the prisoners from the Red Keep dungeons). To me, this question honestly isn’t worth speculating about with what little information we have. Once we get more info, then we’ll see.
2. Did Rugen/Varys know about him?
Since the chief undegaoler Rennifer Longwaters knew about him:
“The black cells are little used. Before your lordship’s
little brother was sent down, we had Grand Maester Pycelle for a time,
and before him Lord Stark the traitor. There were three others, common men,
but Lord Stark gave them to the Night’s Watch. I did not think it good
to free those three, but the papers were in proper order. I made note of
that in a report as well, you may be certain of it.” –AFFC, Jaime I
and since Longwaters made a report, and since Rugen was the undergaoler in charge of the black cells, almost certainly Varys knew about Jaqen H’ghar. Did Varys know that Jaqen was actually a Faceless Man? …Maybe. Probably not. We’ll see.
3. Why are Rorge and Biter are so afraid
IDK, what would frighten a brutal criminal dogfighting organizer and the feral child he raised to fight dogs in the pit? Magic, maybe. Maybe Jaqen showed them some glamour, something terrifying, to keep them at bay. Maybe he had skinned faces in his pockets or something really creepy.
4. It was part of his plan to be imprisoned?
Maybe, maybe not, see above. What I want to know is exactly what he supposedly did that was worthy of being thrown into the black cells. (Again, skinned faces in his pockets maybe?)
I mean, he could be
following his own agenda as well as the one of the Faceless Men.
5. Did he
have multiple targets, as Eddard, i.e. (in case of being sent to The
6. When did he get the assignment of killing Balon?
Before he killed him. Some time after Euron paid the Faceless Men. (Probably with a dragon egg.) Might have been before he was imprisoned in the black cells, might have been he was somehow contacted later while free in Westeros. If you want me to narrow it down, all I can say is
7. Or did he get in the first place the assignment of killing Eddard,
and after all the events he could consider his “task” concluded and
then, return to Braavos where he was assigned to kill Balon?
The timeline doesn’t work that well for not-Jaqen to leave Harrenhal, go east across half the war-torn Riverlands to a port, cross the narrow sea to Braavos, and then return to Westeros and cross the entire width of the Riverlands to Pyke. Per the fan timeline it’s about 3 months between “weasel soup” and Balon’s death. Which might be enough time… but considering the situation in the Riverlands, I doubt it. And going around Westeros would be almost as bad. It makes more sense to me that not-Jaqen went from Harrenhal to Seagard to Pyke, only having to cross half the Riverlands once. Especially since he’s wearing the same face as the Alchemist in Oldtown as he wore when he left Harrenhal.
8. Maybe he is
not working for Euron but against him, I mean, the “FM” know about
Euron’s plans and try to reach Oldtown before him to get “The Death of
A thousand voices were screaming, but Arya never heard them. Prince Joffrey … no, King Joffrey … stepped out from behind the shields of his Kingsguard. “My mother bids me let Lord Eddard take the black, and Lady Sansa has begged mercy for her father.” He looked straight at Sansa then, and smiled, and for a moment Arya thought that the gods had heard her prayer, until Joffrey turned back to the crowd and said, “But they have the soft hearts of women. So long as I am your king, treason shall never go unpunished. Ser Ilyn, bring me his head!”
The crowd roared, and Arya felt the statue of Baelor rock as they surged against it. The High Septon clutched at the king’s cape, and Varys came rushing over waving his arms, and even the queen was saying something to him, but Joffrey shook his head. Lords and knights moved aside as he stepped through, tall and fleshless, a skeleton in iron mail, the King’s Justice. Dimly, as if from far off, Arya heard her sister scream. Sansa had fallen to her knees, sobbing hysterically. Ser Ilyn Payne climbed the steps of the pulpit. […]
High atop the pulpit, Ser Ilyn Payne gestured and the knight in black-and-gold gave a command. The gold cloaks flung Lord Eddard to the marble, with his head and chest out over the edge. […]
Ser Ilyn drew a two-handed greatsword from the scabbard on his back. As he lifted the blade above his head, sunlight seemed to ripple and dance down the dark metal, glinting off an edge sharper than any razor. Ice, she thought, he has Ice! Her tears streamed down her face, blinding her.
