I tried to run away but Renly Baratheon took me in his arms. “Don’t let them see your tears”, he told me. “They’re nasty little shits, and nasty little shits aren’t worth crying over”. He danced with me and none of the other boys could say a word. He saved me from being a joke. From that day until his last day. And I couldn’t save him in return. Nothing is more hateful than failing to protect the one you love. One day I will avenge Lord Renly. - Brienne of Tarth
