ASOIAF MEME: Wenda the White Fawn and the Kingswood Brotherhood
The Kingswood Brotherhood was an infamous outlaw
organization during the reign of King Aerys II. Operating out of the Kingswood,
the Brotherhood gained recognition by kidnapping several nobles and evading
early attempts to capture them. Ultimately, they became such a nuisance that
King Aerys sent a detachment of soldiers led by notable members of the
Kingsguard to destroy them. Lord Sumner Crakehall and his two squires, Jaime
Lannister and Merrett Frey, were also part of the retinue, led by Ser Arthur
The Brotherhood was sheltered by the smallfolk of the
Kingswood, preventing the royal forces from finding and ending the outlaws.
However, Ser Arthur Dayne gained the confidence of the smallfolk, who had
believed that the only ones protecting their rights was the Brotherhood. Arthur
petitioned the king for better rights for the smallfolk and he made sure the
royal forces paid for any items they took from the peasantry. Arthur’s actions
swung the allegiance of the smallfolk to the royal forces who could now hunt
the Brotherhood, as the outlaws could no longer walk around with impunity in
In a notable clash, the young Jaime Lannister, Ser Arthur
Dayne, and Ser Barristan Selmy faced off against several notable outlaws,
including the Smiling Knight and their leader, Simon Toyne. Barristan killed
Simon, while Arthur killed the Smiling Knight. Jaime regards the battle, in
which he crossed swords with the Smiling Knight, as one of his fondest
Other members of the Brotherhood included Wenda the White
Fawn, Oswyn Longneck the Thrice Hanged, Big Belly Ben, Fletcher Dick and Ulmer.
All members are presumed dead except Ulmer, who joined the Night’s Watch to
What's your favorite NSP song? My favorite's Cool Patrol :D
Mines their cover of Wish You Were Here. That song holds a special place in my heart for a friend that passed away last year. Means a whole lot to me. If you haven’t listened to it, please do! It’s a gorgeous cover
Look. I know Zayn and Louis applied for the same job. And Niall and Liam went to the same Busted concert (presumably when they were like 8 years old when Busted was touring before 1D was formed). Both of those things are neat coincidences.
But they aren’t very significant to any of them, because they’ve mentioned both of those things like one time in interviews over the course 6 years (and it was arguably to try and make the Script concert seem like less of a thing).
You know what’s significant? What Harry himself made significant?
The Script concert. He had to make a public declaration about it…twice!
“This place is incredible to me…I remember coming to quite a few gigs here. I remember I stood right there watching the Script and it turns out, Louis was at the same gig!“ - Manchester, 22 December 2011
“This venue is quite special to me. I’ve been to quite a few gigs here before. And I remember, about 3 years ago, I was stood just about there to watch the Script in here, and it turns out, that Louis was at the same gig!” - Manchester, 23 December 2011
Louis and Zayn have never described their mutual employment pursuits as “incredible” or “quite special.” And neither have Liam and Niall described the Busted concert that way, despite it being literally the same scenario as Louis and Harry attending a Script concert at the same venue on the same day.
So you have to wonder why Harry cares so much, why it’s such a curious thing that they were there, together, on the same night, at the same time, doing the same thing, and they didn’t even know each other.
But then fate twisted, and they did meet, and became so important to each other, that it made the night they missed each other that much more significant.

If you look for ‘Close to Home’ by 'Laura Sinead’ you should find it! What’s really cool is that Shazam, which is an app for song recognition, actually recognises my songs! I squealed with happiness when I tested it and my song came up :D
