Irina, 20. Physics & Aerospace engineering major.
Professional stan of Tyrells, Katniss Everdeen, Buffy Summers and Elrics. I enjoy morally ambiguous characters, middle children arcs, characters that use the weapons that were thrown at them and use the same traps they fell into against their own persecutors. Characters who rewrite their stories.
MY ♔ QUEEN ♔ IS BACK
“I am Alayne, father. Who else would I be?”
#ugh god #this is so gorgeous x a million #i am a stark. i can be brave. alayne stone. queen in the north. little bird. lady. the traitor’s daughter. #i must be like my lady mother. i am a stark of winterfell. all these shifting ideals and shifting faces and shifting names #sansa is as much a wolf as her brother as her sister as the rest of her staunch unbending family #she is water and she is air and she understands how to compromise she understands the mechanics of the court #and that is her weapon and her shield #she is crafting herself into a woman of ice and stone but beneath that ice is a beating heart#fuck all the people who call her ‘passive’ and ‘useless’ and ‘not as badass as arya’ #her and arya have the same goddamned arc. they both turn themselves into someone else in order to survive #arya in the cold bleak grey world and sansa in the glittering court dripping poison #both are avenues of survival. both sisters have their stories. both sisters are above and beyond your gross dichotomies #i have had so many arguments with my friends about sansa. honestly so many. #it baffles me how anyone doesn’t like sansa or even like her story #i mean i get it if you don’t like cersei because cersei is not an easy character to like #she’s megalomaniacal and power hungry and like wildfire with no kind of strategy #sansa is a heroine in every sense of the word #she has the classic hero arc - from vanity and childishness and only that sense of awareness you can’t teach #to a woman of the court who uses the court against itself #the only difference is that she’s not a man and the court is not a battlefield with swords or mud or armies #it’s a battlefield of smiles and words and she is mastering it #seriously. #things that baffle me: how anyone doesn’t like sansa #the best of them all
