Behold my denial: the endgame goal that will never occur—AKA: The Great Winterfell Snuggleparty.
Seated before the great hearth of Winterfell, you will see, pictured from left to right, Meera Reed, Hodor, Jojen Reed, Bran Stark, Arya Stark, Jon Snow, Benjen Stark, Rickon Stark, Sansa Stark, Jeyne Poole, Theon Greyjoy, Asha Greyjoy.
Standing guard to the far right: Osha and Brynden Tully.
Standing guard to the far left (and probably biting back tears, lbr): Sandor Clegane.
Direwolves are flopped in front of the fire so you can’t see them but Shaggy, Ghost, Nymeria, and Summer are all present as well, and Nymeria’s wolf pack is romping around playfully in the godswood.
(The Baratheon Kids were invited, but they had their own snuggleparty to attend.)
Never gonna happen.
