People thought of thinking is the exact reason why none of the Starks
other than Sansa would have survived being put at King’s Landing surrounded by enemies
because them saying the wrong thing or doing the wrong thing for
something that wouldn’t even matter if they were dead would lead them to
their death. She knew that escaping at the wrong time would lead her to
her death. She knew that saying the wrong thing (sometimes even at the
wrong person) could lead her to her death. She knew that in order to
survive, she needed to appear like who she was before, not who she is
now. She is strong, because it would have been so much easier for her to
let it all out instead of keeping everything inside. There’s a reason
why Tyrion said “Lady Stark, you may survive us yet.”, and that’s
because of how resilient she is, and how smart she is about what she has
to do to survive. She was strong every second she continued the facade
to love Joffrey. She was strong every single second she continued this
facade of being who she was before and not who she is now. And the thing
is that lots of people like to pretend that Sansa only survived because
of her name and beauty, but do you honestly believe that Joffrey cares
about any of that. He killed Ned Stark despite how everyone around him
(who actually cared about Ned’s name) told him not to. She could have
easily ended up dead if she did any of the stupid stuff you suggested
her doing. A lot of people like to act like she only starting playing
the Game Of Thrones in Season 4 onwards, but in my opinion, she started
playing from the moment her father died, and she surely played her
limited cards right cause she’s alive at this moment. Practically
everyone who stayed at King’s Landing for many seasons died because they
did the wrong thing, said the wrong thing sometimes or solely used the
way they felt as a reason to make a move and that’s starting from her
father going to even the Tyrells but she survived and then she lived and
now she shines.
…on this tumblr. I have another, but shh, let’s not talk about that. It’s mostly dedicated to fandom things that have no place on such a professional blog. Ahem.
Not that this blog won’t eventually descend into the yawning depths of fandom psychosis, but I’ll try and keep things to a minimum for as long as I can. I feel like the Winchesters trying to keep a Devil’s Gate closed…and there I go.
For the most part, I’ll try to keep this sane. And if I go on a reblogging spree and spam you all with Tyrell photosets, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
