No one ever looked for a girl, it was a prince that was promised, not a princess.

"No one ever looked for a girl… It was a prince that was promised, not a princess. Rhaegar I thought… the smoke was from the fire that devoured Summerhall on the day of his birth, the salt from the tears shed for those who died. He shared my belief when he was young, but later he became persuaded that it was his own son who fulfilled the prophecy, for a comet had been seen above King’s Landing on the night Aegon was conceived, and Rhaegar was certain the bleeding star had to be a comet.”"What fools we were, who thought ourselves so wise! The error crept in from the translation. Dragons are neither male nor female, Barth saw the truth of that, but now one and now the other, as changeable as flame. The language misled us all for a thousand years.” “Daenerys is the one, born amidst salt and smoke. The dragons prove it." [x]

My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.

Happy. Broken. Empty.

mademoisellesansa:

He had not been dead when she left the throne room. He had been on his knees, though, clawing at his throat, tearing at his own skin as he fought to breathe. The sight of it had been too terrible to watch, and she had turned and fled, sobbing. Lady Tanda had been fleeing as well. “You have a good heart, my lady,” she said to Sansa. “Not every maid would weep so for a man who set her aside and wed her to a dwarf.”
A good heart. I have a good heart. Hysterical laughter rose up her gullet, but Sansa choked it back down. The bells were ringing, slow and mournful. Ringing, ringing, ringing. They had rung for King Robert the same way. Joffrey was dead, he was dead, he was dead, dead, dead. Why was she crying, when she wanted to dance? Were they tears of joy?

- Sansa, ASOS

Just~ As a Sansa fan I wanted to remind everyone that the book leaves Sansa’s reaction to Joffrey’s death ambiguous at best. Rather than a consistent feeling of joy or relief or satisfied vengeance, Sansa experiences a disconnect between what she thinks she feels and how she is actually physically and emotionally reacting to the death.

Her instinctive and initial reaction to the cruel and unsightly death that Joffrey suffers is to “turn and flee, sobbing” because “the sight of it had been too terrible to watch,” not to feel any form of positive emotion. It is only later, when she has time to reflect on the course of events that she begins to think about how she should feel and what Joffrey’s death actually means for her.

And even after concluding that, logically, she should feel joyous about Joffrey’s death, Sansa continues to weep - no longer for Joffrey, but for Robb and for Margaery. Because this is the kind of person that Sansa is - not someone who dwells on the satisfaction of seeing a hated enemy dead at her feet, but someone who instinctively recoils from the suffering and pain of others and, even when she can no longer find it in herself to feel compassion for the victim, is still much more concerned with the effect of Joffrey’s death on “poor Margaery, twice wed and twice widowed” than she is with the vengeful satisfaction that the death should afford to her.

I’ve just been seeing quite a few posts about how Sansa would be celebrating or extremely happy over Joffrey’s death in the Purple Wedding so I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about the actual text of her reaction in the series :D
