she needs to be as strong as robb

Fun fact about the mun

She unironically and honestly likes Sweetrobin and feels bad for him.

Having grown up watching/reading The Secret Garden he reminds me a lot of Colin. He’s spoiled and bratty, but he’s also afraid of dying and has moments of genuine sweetness (it’s been a while, but he has a few of them in Dance) that hint he might not be all bad.

He just needs a few good-hearted but strong willed companions to play with and help him get stronger both in heart, personality, and body, less bleedings, a good education, and to be as far away from Littlefinger as he can get.

Ned and Cat // Jon and Sansa parallels

It’s interesting. Not just in clothing and stature, both leading the North, both strong, and willful. Cat was a fighter; a pistol, that’s her Tully. Ned was honorable; magnetic, that was Stark. They even argue the same. It was shot with the similar frames. She kept Ned in check, he propped her up, which i think is coming for Jon. Allowing her to have the Ramsay kill was proof of that. Sophie said that was a big moment, when he finally gave her agency.

I’m not necessarily suggesting a romance, but I do see the need to hold the North. Cat once told Robb, she didn’t love Ned at first. Their alliance was political, but over time they built that love; that it was stronger. Lasts longer. Sansa’s end game, I have no idea. She’s hitting her peak which worries me, where Jon hasn’t hit his yet. But if GRRM wants to preserve the Stark House, this is the key. Bran can’t and he’s got other things, like the Night’s King. Same as Arya. So, my vote is cousin marriage…once it is relieved Jon is half Targarygen. Might be the only way.

anyways I appreciate Osha so much she is honestly one of my favorite minor characters and such a good example of how deep Stark loyalty runs. Osha was a wildling who tried to kill Bran, but once she was shown mercy by Robb she became Bran’s fiercest protector. She took him and his brother out of Winterfell when Theon captured it, she was a constant reassuring and grounding figure to both boys, she saw to their needs above her own, she took care of their beloved maester in his final moments. Then when the time came that it was clear that their paths must split, Osha left Bran with people she trusted and took Rickon to Skagos, and what she hoped would be a safe place.

She is patient and strong and so fiercely loyal to these two boys, she would do and has done anything to take care of them, and I’m just so emotional about it.
