…You think my life is some precious thing to me? That I would trade my honour for a few more years of… of what?
My favorite moment in all of season 1.
get your little fingers off of my daughter, littlefinger
We can all see which way your eyes are pointing, LF. The North remembers.
The blood of Winterfell.

i find it really amusing how while talking to people in king’s landing ned’s facial expressions range from moderately to hugely disgusted. and you can tell he’s not quite sure if he’s more disgusted with the people or the weather or himself. but that doesn’t matter anyway because the point is that he is generally disgusted with everything and he hates his life and wants to go home because what is he even doing in a such dumb hot place to begin with?
When they had first come to King’s Landing, she used to have bad dreams about getting lost in the castle. Father said the Red Keep was smaller than Winterfell, but in her dreams it had been immense, an endless stone maze with walls that seemed to shift and change behind her. She would find herself wandering down gloomy halls, past faded tapestries, descending endless circular stairs, darting through courtyards or over bridges, her shouts echoing unanswered. In some of the rooms the red stone walls would seem to drip blood, and nowhere could she find a window. Sometimes she would hear her father’s voice, but it was always from a long way off, and no matter how hard she ran after it, it would grow fainter and fainter until it faded to nothing and Arya was alone in the dark.
The men who loved their king too much.
Because Ned refused to cooperate in Daenerys’ assassination.
Because Ned’s downfall wasn’t due to his greed, cruelty, selfishness etc. it was because he wanted to protect three children who meant nothing to him
“They say it grows so cold up here in winter that a man’s laughter freezes in his throat and chokes him to death,” Ned said evenly. “Perhaps that is why the Starks have so little humor.”
we made Robb that night though; we made a king together
It is in a northern country; they have cold weather, they have cold hearts.
Cold; tempest; wild beasts in the forest. It is a hard life.
