there must always be a stark at winterfell

Today at work a man came in wearing a Stark shirt. I yelled KING OF THE NORTH! And, I kid you not, 4 strangers started chanting KING OF THE NORTH with me! Forget my wedding, it was the most magical moment of my life.

Reading through all of the crackpot theories and open mysteries regarding the Starks, it seems like each Lord Stark should at some point take his heir aside and have “the talk”. You now, the one about the Children of the Forest, and warging, and the Others. Better yet, maybe they could just put it all in a Secret Stark Handbook.

“You must govern the North in my stead […] there must always be a Stark in Winterfell […]Make him part of your councils”

Just a reminder to all those who forget, or ignore, (often thanks to the fecking show) that Catelyn is actually a good leader, held far more responsibilities than just being a Mother and knew much about politics and ruling; Ned Stark left her to govern Winterfell AND THE WHOLE OF THE NORTH in his absence, she is left as Warden in the North until Robb is of age, that Ned Stark also considers her to be a ‘Stark in Winterfell’ even though she’s a Tully by birth, and that in Ned Stark’s own words we know she has HER OWN COUNCILS.
