favourite Game of Thrones ships | Ned x Cat
And after the war, at Winterfell, I had love enough for any woman, once I found the good sweet heart beneath Ned’s solemn face.
So, I feel like I need to say a little more about this. First, establishing some things:
Things that bother me:
So, what it all boils down to is that you have this character. She’s very sweet, she’s young, she’s innocent. She and Robb sleep together from a lack of willpower / spur of the moment thing, and because she’s noble, and it’s a matter of honor (and hormones and love), Robb marries her. Now, we’ve got this character, who is sarcastic, who is unlike any other person in the Game of Thrones world, male or female , she’s been around Robb for weeks, his men hate her, his mother dislikes her, she has shown she does not care for normal societal conventions, and (note IT IS NOT A PROBLEM THAT SHE IS NOT A VIRGIN IF SHE IS NOT.) from the way HBO framed her actions, it is highly suspect that she is a virgin, which means that for Robb to marry her, he would have a: been around her for weeks, b: going against every single person around him, c: married her for ? reason, and it just makes a lot less sense.
I get them remaking Jeyne. Fine. What I don’t get is why did they make a person who does a job that’s not a job, from a family that’s not a family, from a region we know nothing about, with a personality unlike anyone in westeros, and just expect that to be totally cool and the same and work with Robb as a character. :(
‘In my life, I have wanted for little, and what I have wanted for I have quickly come to see that I cannot have, and because of this I have learned that it is wrong for me to want. You told me something once, a very long time ago.’ She was wrapped in his cloak, as it was cold, and the moon door lay open at their feet. ‘You told me that when you know what a man wants, you know who he is, and how to move him. And I thought how lucky for me, the girl who could want nothing.’
He frowned. ‘My lady…’
‘No. Listen. It has been so long that I have gotten back to wanting, and I seem to have forgotten how. I was doing it wrong, though, all along. You taught me that. The foolish girl I was then, standing at windows and staring out and waiting for someone else to make the moves I prayed for. I’m not a waiter any longer. I’m not a wanter, either. You have taught me how to be selfish, and cruel, and how to take.’
She reached out and put one, cold hand on his chest. ‘So my question, Lord Baelish, is this. Did I move you?’
And she gave a quick, short shove.
To me this is a purposely debatable pt, GRRM withheld further interactions w/Cat so we’d never be sure. I personally feel Petyr’s desire to not care about Cat any more was a (delusional?) struggle so I…
random note, but Petyr is forever ruined for me because I feel like he’s Batmaning his voice and I think he sounds ridiculous. :<Source: thestarkinwinterfell
