“My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.”
#i know this quote is overused as fuck but it is so damn accurate #i think people don’t think about it too much even though they use it a lot #and i think sansa haters should think about it too #before calling her stupid annoying and childish you should consider the fact that she was a child who was raised to be a lady believing she #would marry a great lord and have children and be happy just like they taught her through the songs #then they had her believing she would marry the prince of the seven kingdoms (who she thought was a great person)#and then suddenly she lost everything she had everything she knew and everything she believed in #the prince turned out to be an abusive asshole who took her father’s head and had her beaten up constantly #she found herself in a place where she had literally no family no friends not even a single person she could trust #all she had left in king’s landing was hope #like literally she had nothing but hope for robb to win the war and hope to someday be home again #and guess what? #this annoying childish and stupid teenager is outliving a bunch of powerful and respected adults #this young girl who grew up thinking her life would be like a song and then was left with absolutely nothing but pain is a survivor #she learned really fast how to play the game and it’s working really well #so i’m guessing she’s not that dumb in the end and she’s a lot more powerful smart and strong than you’re giving her credit for

The girl’s happiness is not my purpose, nor should it be yours. Our alliances in the south may be as solid as Casterly Rock, but there remains the north to win, and the key to the north is Sansa Stark.
#I LOVE HER SO MUCH #because stories are her lies #because she no longer lives in them #but she brings them to life around her #because she will be a bastard like jon if she has to #and she will embody any story she needs to to survive #meanwhile shae lies for a living #she lies for her life #and she always has #so she doesn’t like to do it for fun #because the truth is always on the tip of her tongue #begging to come loose
“Sansa stalked away with her head up. She was to be a queen, and queens did not cry. At least not where people could see.”
while you were selling your soul
while you were tearing a hole in me
I was taking control
now I have taken control
“I am Sansa Stark, Lord Eddard’s daughter and Lady Catelyn’s, the blood of Winterfell…She turned her face up to the sky and closed her eyes. She could feel the snow on her lashes, taste it on her lips. It was the taste of Winterfell, the taste of innocence, the taste of dreams…I am stronger within the walls of Winterfell.”
and when they come together for his wedding, and you come out… clad in a maiden’s cloak of white and grey with a direwolf emblazoned on the back… why, every knight in the Vale will pledge his sword to win you back your birthright. So those are your gifts from me, my sweet Sansa… Harry, the Eyrie, and Winterfell.
a piece I just finished today (: super happy with it. SANSA MY QUEEN IN THE NORTH.
