keith, being the touch-starved emo alien cat that he is, has these moments where he just,,wraps his arms around an unsuspecting victim and just lays there. sometimes for hours. (read:lance is usually said unsuspecting victim)
“you do realize there’s a drill going on right now, right?” “shut up and hold me.”
during training, they try so hard to one-up each-other that they end up passing out from exhaustion
“keith, keith, keith, show them the thing!” “blep.” “oh my gOD-”

lance is always walking around the castle shirtless in the morning, the reason being keith is always taking damn shirts and never giving them back
“lance, where are your clothes?” “idk ask keith.”
regardless of height, lance is always the little spoon. always. forever. don’t question it.
the castle went under maintenance once, and keith was forced to share a room with lance. needless to say, even after his room was finished, keith never left
lance gives off a lot of body heat, which makes him the perfect person to cuddle with, especially for keith, whose about as warm as a box of penguins (aka cold af someone gives this boy a jacket or smth)
also, since lance is always so goddamn warm, he and keith don’t even need blankets when they sleep together
did i mention keith was a closet meme
*lance is about to do something reckless with his lion* “hoe don’t do it-” *lance does it* “oh my god.”
“this is, as you Earth people say, lit?” “say lit one more time.”
lance loves his meme bf
keith knows that lance is Disgusted by his texan accent, so he makes it a point to slip into it just to annoy the hell out him

the Bonding Moment is an inside joke of theirs
“Hey Keith?” “Lance it’s like 2 in the morning what do you want?” “Do you think Vrepit Sa stands for Dicks Out for Zarkon?”
I've always thought in terms of personality, arya is much more like catelyn and Sansa much more like Ned. Popular opinion seems to like it the other way round though. Maybe it's because of looks, maybe it's because Sansa/cat less popular arya/Ned more so they group them like that. But I firmly believe personality wise, arya gets more from cat and Sansa more from Ned. I was wondering if you could expand on this and share your opinion?
Hey there anon :).
I’ve picked up on this many times before and for some reason its often
overlooked by many in the fandom. I’ve always thought that while Arya resembles
Ned and Sansa resembles Cat, their personality and mannerisms are actually more
like the other parent. I personally think this is often denied because a lot of
people love Ned and Arya but don’t like Cat and Sansa, so I’m hoping this may
help change their opinion.
Catelyn and Arya:
Feminism: Despite the
very patriarchal society they live in, both Cat and Arya are essentially
champions of women, recognising the worth of women and also almost scorning how
they’re seen as second value citizens in Westeros:
Catelyn: ‘A woman can rule as wisely as a man’: When Brynden seems to worry
that Lysa intends to rule the Eyrie, Catelyn says this, emphasising her belief
that women can do just as much of a good job ruling (and to be fair, Brynden
does agree that the ‘right’ woman can)
Catelyn:‘Girls are not important enough, are they?’: This is her response
when Robb tells her that he could’ve traded Jaime for Ned, and she realises
that Sansa and Arya aren’t worth as much, lamenting how society favours men
Arya: ‘The woman is important too’: This is when Jon spots that Joffrey
wears both the royal Baratheon sigil of his ‘father’ and the Lannister lion of
his mother and says that the royal sigil should be enough but he wears his
mother’s house sigil as equal and Arya protests that, saying that women are
just as important.
Both Catelyn and Arya are actually rather intelligent: Now I’m
not saying that Sansa and Ned aren’t intelligent, but Arya definitely takes
after Catelyn, she’s a lot more intuitive than Sansa is, and that is all Cat. Catelyn
manages to outwit Tyrion, and he acknowledges that himself: ‘All his life Tyrion had prided himself on
his cunning…yet this seven-times-damned she-wolf Catelyn Stark had outwitted
him at every turn’. Arya is intelligent as well, for example, she uses her
wit and intelligence to manipulate Jaqen into freeing them from Harrenhal, she
manages to learn how to speak Braavosi, despite her young age (I also love how
when she’s in Braavos, ‘Cat of the Canals’ is a name she uses, it breaks my
They both have a massive taste for revenge:
Arya: ‘Every night Arya would say their names. Ser
Gregor…The Tickler and the Hound, Ser Amory, Ser Ilyn, Ser Meryn, King
Joffrey, Queen Cersei’: The list of names that Arya has of people she wants
to kill is very well known in both the books and the show.
Catelyn: ‘I want them all dead, Brienne. Theon Greyjoy
first, then Jaime Lannister and Cersei and the Imp, every one’: This is
before Lady Stoneheart, so there’s not even the excuse of the ruthless,
resurrected zombified Catelyn who is taking this stance on revenge.
Catelyn literally has a list of people she wants dead, not
necessarily by her hand, whereas Arya actually wants to kill the people on her
list, but if this isn’t a huge pointer to who Arya takes after, then I don’t know
what is. Now Catelyn isn’t violent, but she’s certainly after vengeance. Ned isn’t
a someone who seems like that. Yes he went to war, but I’d argue that was more
about finding Lyanna. And if he had got the chance, I’d say he would’ve killed
Aerys without blinking, but I firmly believe Arya’s stance on revenge and
vengeance comes from Cat, and not Ned. Here are some of Cat’s other quotes:
‘You are the gentle
sex’ said Lord Karstark…’A man has a need for vengeance’…‘Give me Cersei
Lannister, Lord Karstark, and you would see how gentle a woman can be’
‘I have no skill with
swords, but that does not mean that I do not dream of riding to King’s Landing
and wrapping my hands around Cersei Lannister’s white throat and squeezing until her face turns black’
Not only is Cat demonstrating her taste for vengeance, but
particularly in that second quote, she’s describing it gruesomely. Cat has a
fierceness that is seen in Arya. Arya’s list is almost purely based on a desire
to get revenge for the deaths of her family, that sounds pretty similar to a
certain resurrected character. This fierceness we see in Arya is all Cat, Ned is not a fierce person at all.
Emotion: Both Cat and Arya are driven by emotion, and this can often
mean them doing reckless things. While Cat (for the most part) is more
rational, and that comes with age and maturity, she can be impulsive at times. For
Arya, things like hitting Joffrey (although he was attacking Mycah, Joffrey is
the crown prince and it’s punishable by death to strike him) is an example of
her recklessness, but she does it to protect someone. Catelyn releasing Jaime
strikes me as something similar, it is a reckless act, but driven by a desire
to protect her daughters and get them safe. Yes, it wasn’t a good move and
severely weakened Robb’s cause (Though I don’t think that cost him the war as
others do. They just place the blame on Cat), but it reminds me of Arya,
because that is something she would do.
Cat is very emotionally driven when it comes to Jon. Jon’s
presence (not his existence, contrary to popular belief, Cat doesn’t hate the
fact that Jon exists. She actually says she wouldn’t mind if Ned had many
bastards, as long as they were kept away) affects her emotionally and it hurts
her to see him every day, to be reminded of the honourable Ned Stark’s infidelity.
She acts on emotion and chooses to ignore him over something he had no choice
in, and it is driven by her hurt over the situation. Arya is similar to this,
in the show, not the book, when Gendry is taken. Gendry is like an anchor for
Arya at this point, and it really hurts her to see him being taken by
Melisandre. However, she adds Beric, Thoros and Melisandre to her list for
this. A list that includes Cersei, Joffrey, Walder Frey, people who helped
murder her family. Now, Gendry being taken really hurt her, but do them three
deserve to be on her list? Not really, it’s purely driven by emotion.
Childhood: Arya is obviously well known for her play during childhood. She’s
messy, enjoys playing with the boys, wants to swordfight, and just wild in
general. People often liken that to Lyanna, but Catelyn remembers her own
childhood where she used to make mud pies with Lysa, and used to play with her
and Petyr. Although she didn’t swordfight, Catelyn’s own childhood mirrors Arya’s
quite a bit, since she also enjoyed playing as a child (I have a headcanon that
Arya’s archery skills come from Catelyn because as a child, Cat was taught how
to use a bow and arrow by Brynden Tully, but there’s no evidence for that, it’s
just a headcanon). People may then call Cat a hypocrite for wanting Arya not to
engage in play activities, but people also forget that Cat was forced to grow
up very quickly after her mother died and it likely was a quick transition that
she wasn’t prepared for and I argue that she wanted Arya to be more prepared
than she was and she’s also aware of how harsh society is for women, especially
those who don’t fit into the roles of ‘looking pretty’ and producing babies.
Strength: Another similarity is both of them remaining strong.
Arya: ‘I am a wolf and will not be afraid’ and the repeated ‘I’m not afraid’ in the show’ demonstrate Arya’s strength. Arya is afraid, and the Hound picks up on that, but she tries to push the feeling of being afraid away out of fear of being weak, she can’t allow herself to be weak, instead she resorts to her inner strength.
Catelyn: ‘I want to weep, she
thought. I want to be comforted. I’m so tired of being strong. I want to be
foolish and frightened for once. Just for a small while, that’s all, a day, an
hour’ While Catelyn is talking about grief and not fear, she also shares the similar belief that she has to be strong, so she pushes her grief away because she also can’t allow herself to be weak, like Arya, demonstrating the inner strength she has.
I said in a previous ask Cat and Arya’s relationship is undervalued, but there are so many things Catelyn loves about Arya and now Arya will never get the chance to know how much her mother loved her. One thing that is heartbreaking is that we know how desperately Catelyn
wanted to give Ned a son that looked like him, but she never got the chance to.
I believe that despite the fact that Arya is not seen as ‘pretty’ and doesn’t get
the nice Tully features the other four do, Cat wouldn’t change Arya’s
appearance because Arya is the brown haired, grey eyed child she’d always
LSH doesn’t look like she will be introduced in the show,
but in the books, I firmly believe that it will be Arya, to put her out of her
misery. And I like to think that having to kill her own mother, Arya will stop
her quest for vengeance and head north to find her family.
Ned and Sansa:
Naivety: Sansa has obviously changed since season 1, but in season 1,
her and Ned shared the same naivety. Both of them go to Cersei in the hope that
she will listen to them, and it backfires on both of them. Ned confronted
Cersei with the fact that he knew the truth about her and Jaime, and that was
essentially him signing his death warrant. It was naive of Ned to believe that
Cersei wouldn’t try to fight back in any way. Cersei has watched Robert’s
vengeance follow the Targaryen children around in exile, and she didn’t want
that for her own children, Ned’s naivety cost him his life. Sansa also runs to
tell Cersei of Ned’s plans to leave, and it backfired.
Too Trusting: Ned obviously doesn’t trust Cersei, but he places trust in her that he believes she will take up his offer and flee. He trusts that she will put the interest of her children first, and she doesn’t and he was too trusting of her.
Ned: ‘Distrusting me was
the wisest thing you’ve done since you climbed off your horse’—‘I did warn you not to trust me’: This is the classic example of Ned being too trusting. Placing his trust in a man who literally tells him not too.
Sansa: ‘Once she had loved Prince Joffrey with all
her heart and admired and trusted his mother, the queen. They had repaid that
love and trust with her father’s head: Sansa places her trust in the wrong people, just as Ned does, and unfortunately for her, she finds out the hard way and it’s certainly a learning curve for her. The too trusting thing is all Ned, Catelyn is much more wary of people, as is Arya (Roose Bolton at Harrenhal for example)
The Eyrie: This is much more of a simple parallel, but it is still one.
Ned: Grows up in the Eyrie as a ward of Jon Arryn
Sansa: Spends time in the Eyrie under the ‘protection’ of Littlefinger as his bastard daughter (niece in the show)
It’s a very simple similarity, but I believe there is a purpose to everything that George writes. It’s funny that LF is almost trying to make Sansa turn into Catelyn, but he’s doing so in a place where Sansa will feel connected to Ned.
Traditional: While Cat and Arya very much champion women and are essentially medieval feminists, Ned and Sansa are much more traditional. Now, that’s not to say that they don’t value women, because they do. Sansa has probably been beaten down to think that women aren’t worth much but by season 7, we see that she’s really starting to believe in herself as a woman. Ned definitely valued women, respected them, he had a lot of trust in Catelyn, but in reality they are both traditional and fit in with the patriarchal society. Sansa despises of anything unlady-like that Arya does, because it’s not how a woman should act. Certainly in book one, Sansa is convinced that she has to look pretty for Joffrey, smile for him, give him babies, a very traditional medieval view of a woman’s role. Ned certainly doesn’t see Catelyn as a breeding machine, and that’s not what my point is here, but he is still traditional in the fact that he is in charge, and what he says goes. He doesn’t give Cat a say in Jon’s situation and then forbids her to talk about him, using his authority as the male over her. That’s not to say Ned is mean, it’s him being traditional, the man is superior to the woman.
Gentleness: Both Ned and Sansa are much more gentle than Cat and Arya. Cat and Arya have a fierceness we don’t see in Ned and Sansa. Sansa is a gentle young lady, made for the south, doesn’t know how harsh the world is, a very gentle soul. Despite his rough exterior, we know that Ned is actually a very gentle person: ‘Eyes that could be soft as fog or hard as stone’, ‘Once I found the good, sweet heart beneath Ned’s solemn face’. Sansa’s gentleness towards people and life is 100% Ned, even though he doesn’t seem the gentle type.
Armour: Their metaphorical suits of armour are pointed out:
Ned: ‘You wear your honour like a suit of armour, Stark’
Sansa: ‘What was it that Septa Mordane used to tell her? A ladies armour is courtesy’
It’s another simple similarity, but a fascinating one again, because they are both using these metaphorical suits of armour to almost shield them from real life. Ned holds honour in high regard, as Sansa holds courtesy as well, and they are the things that they use to shield themselves, as armour is supposed to do.
General Personality: Ned is known as the most quiet (his nickname is the ‘Quiet Wolf’), sensible, patient, dutiful and this is definitely evident in Sansa. Sansa is also rather quiet (in comparison to Arya), sensible and patient, she’s not rash or reckless, she’s slower to act to things, idealistic, she has a great deal of empathy. That’s not to say that Catelyn is the complete opposite, Catelyn does have empathy and she’s not completely reckless, but these qualities are much more evident in Ned.
Reassurance: This again is only a small one, but in the show only, we’ve seen a similarity between Ned and Sansa, trying to reassure Catelyn and Jon respectively that they belong in Winterfell
Ned: ‘All these years and I still feel like an outsider when I come here’ — ‘You have five Northern children. You’re not an outsider’
Sansa: ‘I’m not a Stark’ — ‘You are to me’
It’s a very simple parallel, but an important one. They are both reassuring someone who isn’t sure of their place, that they belong. We saw Sansa through season 6 continue to try and assure Jon that he had a place, that he was a Stark. She made him a Stark cloak, she told him he should have the lord’s chamber, she convinced him to be the person to lead them retaking Winterfell. I imagine that Ned throughout his marriage, assured Catelyn that she belonged in Winterfell, the North was her home etc.
Like Cat and Arya, Ned and Sansa’s relationship is massively undervalued as well. Sansa is his first daughter, and while he obviously loves Arya too, that’s something special to him. She’s the first child he would’ve been present for the birth, seen her as a newborn. We don’t actually know when Ned and Cat fell in love, but Sansa could’ve been the first child out of love. Sansa is precious to Ned, she’s just like him in personality, but she looks just like the woman he loves more than anything, and her innocence and gentle look on the world is why I think he doesn’t tell her what the world is really like, he wants to shield his little girl from the horrors of it.
In the end, people talk a lot about Ned sacrificing his honour for Jon, but they often ignore the fact that Ned loved Sansa enough that he was willing to be deemed a traitor to his best friend in order to save her and that is Ned Stark summed up in one scene. He thinks honour is important, but it’s nothing compared to family. Sansa is one of the last things he sees before he dies, and Ned would be proud of the woman Sansa has become

Stop demanding Korean fans to translate everything for you. Translators exist for a reason. You’re making non-bilingual natives uncomfortable and it’s rude to keep asking when they made it clear that they’re not fluent in English. If you’re that curious about what people are saying, use an online translator or put effort into actually learning Korean.
