“Arya, the lone wolf, still lived, but the wolves of the pack had been taken and slain and skinned.”
Vengeance for her pack burned within her, she’d set the Seven Kingdoms on fire to light the emptiness they left in her heart🐺
To what extent do you think the Direwolves' names foreshadow the outcome of their corresponding Stark Children?
To a considerable extent. Robb is a Grey Wind now–a story and myth about the fallen Stark king. Bran will help bring about and lead the way into Summer. Arya will be a dedicated warrior and guardian of her people like Nymeria, though I don’t think she winds up as queen. Sansa is a Lady, the Lady, the best possible version of that archetype. Rickon’s whole life is a Shaggydog story. As for Jon…well, “Ghost” is self-explanatory.
Grey Wind, her son had named him. A direwolf large as any elkhound, lean and smoke-dark, with eyes like molten gold. When the beast padded forward and sniffed at the captive knight, every man in that hall could smell the scent of fear. Ser Cleos had been taken during the battle in the Whispering Wood, where Grey Wind had ripped out the throats of half a dozen men.
Drabble Friday- This is a Robb request and jon request.. How would they react to their bestfriend/girlfriend/secretlover (you pick) if their direwolf wouldn’t listen to them and prefered you more? And would always go to you and give you puppy kisses?
game of thrones preferences - what being with Robb Stark would involve
Meeting Robb’s direwolf Grey Wind for the first time. At first he would be hesitant, but after recognizing how much Robb cares about you Grey Wind starts to love you and follows you around when he can’t find Robb.
Coming to him after he’s been outside in the freezing Northern winter all day, and cuddling to warm him up.
Getting approval from Catelyn and Eddard about your relationship, seeing as it is one of love and not an arranged one. Catelyn would be wary at first, but she agrees once she sees Ned is immediaty on board.
Having to get used to being called “Lady Stark” and “the Queen in the North,” and Robb chuckling at your confused looks when you forget.
Chatting with Robb’s siblings, whether it be talking with Sansa about the new dress designs, discussing with Arya and Jon the advantage of having a longsword as opposed to a blade when fighting, and telling scary stories to Bran and Rickon when they can’t sleep. Robb constantly jokes that his siblings like you far better than him.
Helping Robb with his military plans, and him finding no shame in telling everyone that his wife assists his battle endeavors; in fact, he’ll proudly tell people of it regardless of if they’ve asked.
Walking into the throne room every morning and smiling at the sight of the Stark direwolf next to your own sigil.
After a close victory in a battle where Robb almost lost his life, Robb comes back and kisses you hard, telling you that he loves you and how he needs you to never forget it.
Always kissing Robb before he leaves to a distant kingdom. You joke for him not to lay with another woman while he is away, but he firmly insists he would never dream of doing such a thing when he had the most beautiful wife in the world.
Robb encouraging you to do whatever you wanted. If you wanted be a housewife he’d give you the North’s finest dresses and the best handmaidens he could find; if you wanted to be a fighter he would order the greatest smith in the kingdom to make you a sword and armor that fits you perfectly. He never forced you to do anything you didn’t want to do.
Having two beautiful children with Robb; fraternal twins with the girl looking just like your husband and the boy looking just like you. Robb insists they take first names from your family, seeing they already have the Stark last name.
Drabble Friday- Robb and Jon request with the direwolves again..where they don’t realize that the reader has been letting them into her room at night..but returning them before they wake up..but she sleeps in one day and they catch their wolf in bed an what they’d do
You let the direwolf into your room as you had been doing this for a good few nights now, of course Robb didn’t know because you know he would just moan at you about it and tell you that you shouldn’t do that. Grey Wind jumped up onto your bed and circled for a moment before flopping down into his usual sleeping position on the furs and you walk to your bed after closing the door and you climb back into bed.
Usually you returned him to his kennel before everyone was awake, part from the one time young Arya Stark caught you, but you were both very fond of each other and delared to keep it a secret.
However, this morning was different. You’d managed to sleep in and you totally forgot about the direwolf who slept on the other side of the bed. You looked up and saw Robb standing at the bottom of your bed with his arms crossed.
“How long have you been standing there watching me sleep?” You yawn and then it hits you- Grey Wind was lying next to you still.
“What’s my direwolf doing in your bed?” He asks and your cheeks blush a light pink.
“Grey Wind loves it up here with me, and you’re so mean so you don’t let him go to your room,” You say and he smirks.
“Well it should be me sharing your bed, not an animal,” He says and you can’t help but laugh.
“Are you jealous of a direwolf?” You ask and his arms unfold and he looks over at Grey Wind and back at you.
“Maybe…” He admits and you smirk.
“I love you, you know that,” You tell him and he smiles and grabs your hand.
“I love you too,” He says and he pushes his lips on yours.
“Now, shall we go for a walk?” You ask and he nods.
“And maybe tonight, I’ll be the wolf sharing your bed?” He asks and you laugh at him.
“Maybe,” You say and he pushes his lips on yours again.
