honestly grrm missed a huge opportunity in neglecting to explore Jon’s relationship to the staff and servants at Winterfell. They all obviously would have known him from infancy and played a huge role in raising him. I refuse to believe this sweet motherless little boy didn’t get smothered in pats on the head from every maid and serving woman. I absolutely cannot imagine a world where he didn’t cling to Old Nan like a barnacle until well past an appropriate age.
