i think its funny how sansa told bran to hide under his blanket so “demons” couldn’t get him but when a “spirit” tries to scare them she goes running for the hills and it’s arya who throws down and scolds it for scaring baby bran lol
which makes me think of how after ned and the girls receive the news that bran is going to live sansa dreams of him smiling; probably a subconscience projection of the boy she remembers who was so lovable as well as a sign of her own happiness. but at winterfell bran wakes up changed. he’s definitely not smiling. he has lost the use of his legs. his hopes and dreams have been broken.
and that quickly occurs to arya. she remembers how he wanted to be a knight of the kingsguard and is the one who asks what will happen to bran when he comes of age. she reminds their father of bran’s dreams of knighthood and he confirms that path is no longer an option. later in agot, arya wonders if bran is sad too.
both show their idealistic vs pragmatic perspectives. sansa sees the good happy news but arya reflects more on what this will mean for brans future and how it will make him feel. arya has more reason to at this point too. while sansa is living out her fairy tale in kings landing arya wants to return home to be with her brothers. and she knows what it feels like to be uncertain of your fate
