Do you still believe in jonsa? :( I really want them to be together :( I want to believe jon is playing daenerys i can't just accept he would bend the knee easily!
Hi sweet anon,
I do still believe in Jonsa. I’ll always believe in it, until the last ASOIAF book comes out to prove me wrong.
Jon and Sansa’s relations have been set up and written to be romantic – both in the show and in the book in my opinion. Not for a one-night stand, not for sexual tension, not for political marriage; but for finding comfort in each other, safety, trust, peace, love and family, something that nobody else in the World could give them. All they long for is the North, the Starks, their family and their home, and who could understand that better than they do themselves? Who else could understand their pain?
Let’s look back:
They had the most emotional reunion out of all characters on the show. None of the men in castle black have looked at them and thought they were siblings. They all must’ve thought they were long-lost lovers.
The stare™ and the cheesy smile:
When was the last time Jon or Sansa laughed like this? Who else makes them happy like this?
LOOK AT THIS!!!! For god’s sake if my sibling looked at me like this I would’ve called the police by now
Now, the letter from Ramsay. Look at how he looks as Sansa to check up on her before reading the letter.
When it got to the r*pe bit, Jon threw it away and looked away in anger.
When Sansa carries on reading, look at his face. Look how gently he lookes at her.
He loves her.
Now, for the fur-coat scene. This is important - Sansa tells Jon “You are a Stark” without really saying anything.
For god’s sake look at him
Then the heated argument in the tent. (can you imagine if this was Jon with another specific character arguing in a dark tent while breathing heavily? the internet would go crazy) Jon was really trying to be angry here, but couldn’t. He still looks at her like this:
“I won’t EVER let him touch you again. I’ll protect you I promise”.
We all know Jon’s reaction to Ramsay mentioning Sansa in his bed *kill bill sirens* Have you ever seen Jon being so protective over anyone like that before?
I also found interesting how Jon found and was looking at Sansa when the Vale’s army marched in:
After the battle, Sansa was the only reason he didn’t beat Ramsay to death.
And then the forehead kiss.
This is not a brother showing affection to his sister. This is something else. This is far too loving, far too intimate, far too long.
And then another stare.
Then, she makes him laugh once again, like nobody else does.
And she finally looks happy.
And when Jon becomes the King in the North, he looks at her.
Continuing into season 7, we’ve got this gem, where Littlefinger says he loves Sansa and Jon gives us one of his angriest moments in the show:
He entrusts Sansa with his kingdom and his people
and he tenderly looks back to look at her one last time before he sets off
And lastly, the thought of her is the only thing that stops him from killing Theon.
I know this got long, sorry, but there are so many little moments, touches and looks that are so important. We know they’ve been rushing the show, they’ve been rushing J0nerys, but they haven’t rushed this. Why? Why haven’t they rushed Jon and Sansa and concentrated on them building trust for each other? Their affection for each other?
Because, dear anon, I believe that Jon and Sansa will end up together. And you should too!
