nobodysuspectsthebutterfly replied to your post: Had a very intense argument with my sister earlier about Sandor’s true nature. She thinks he’s just a mindless killing machine, whereas I think that, yes, he enjoys killing, and he’ll do it to protect himself or others or when ordered to, but he doesn’t just kill people because he feels like it. That’s a Gregor trait. Haven’t read the books in ages, though so could be wrong, just interested in your two cents on this[Re Saltpans] “What they were describing sounded more like Gregor’s work than Sandor’s. Sandor had been hard and brutal, yes, but it was his big brother who was the real monster in House Clegane.” — Jaime Lannister
TITLE: You Said Your Vows & Closed the Door
CHARACTERS: SanSan, what else? ;)
WORDS: One-shot, 999 words (HA!)
DESCRIPTION: Future fic; what happens when Sansa decides to marry someone else. Title taken from Death Cab for Cutie’s song “Cath” - “You said your vows, and you closed the door…on so many men who would have loved you more…”
DISCLAIMER: Characters etc. are GRRM’s and his alone.
Sansa-sandor LJ community commentfic meme prompt: Their last conversation before she marries someone else.
(beware, this one is a bit depressing)
“…this was a bitter tormented soul, a sinner who mocked both gods and men. He served but found no pride in service. He fought but took no joy in victory. He drank, to drown his pain in a sea of wine. He did not love, nor was he loved himself. It was hate that drove him. Though he committed many sins he never sought forgiveness…”
i have a million excuses and i swear all of them are good
not the least of which is that i basically work two jobs now and my computer at my day job does not allow me to visit tumblr
i’m going to try to be better at this
here are some fic gifts for still following me, if you’re still around:

Massive Attack & Mos Def “I Against I”
A Sandor song, if you ask me.
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won’t survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time
yes, excellent taste, and also very ASOIAF-y for the “flesh of my flesh/mind of my mind”
The secret diary of Joffrey Baratheon age twelve and a half. Meet Joffrey’s best friend.
A SONG OF DOGS AND WOLVES
OR: A COMPILATION OF ALL THE MILLIONS OF TIMES DOGS AND WOLVES ARE MENTIONED TOGETHER, COMPARED TO EACH OTHER, OR BASICALLY THEMATICALLY INSEPARABLE IN THE BOOK SERIES THAT MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN TITLED A SONG OF DOGS AND WOLVES
YOU WANT TO…
ooooooo can you say your reasons for the sorting choices?? :D ps. this would be ADORABLE
Oh, geez, Sandor’s basically the biggest loyal Hufflepuff that ever was. I have some thoughts on his sorting in a few of my recent posts, if you want to take a look. But basically he’s just a fierce honeybadger. ;) Though I could see his (AU-verse) actual sorting as a near-Hatstall — him thinking desperately “not Slytherin” (because duh, that’s where Gregor is, as a Crabbe-Goyle type) and the Hat telling him he’s got the courage for Gryffindor… but then seeing that what Sandor really wants is to belong, to support, and going for Hufflepuff in the end.
Sansa, well, Sansa is a little odd for her family (Starks are almost always Gryffs though the Tullys are obvious Hufflepuffs, and Bran wants to be a Gryffindor but will end up Ravenclaw instead). Of course she read everything about Hogwarts (she’d wanted to go so much her whole life), and knows all the stories of all the great wizards and witches, and thought how being a Slytherin would be so mysterious and romantic, and how being a Gryffindor would be so brave and romantic, and how the other two would be… all right… though Ravenclaws are smart and Hufflepuffs are loyal, that is true… and was very surprised when the instant the Hat touched her head it said Ravenclaw.
BTW, if you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend guad’s ASOIAF Quidditch, it’s so cute (the brooms! omg) and I agree with almost all of her sorting and position choices.
THAT HONEY BADGER VIDEO I AM DYING FROM LAUGHTER
“WATCH OUT” SAYS THAT BIRD
IT JUST DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT, IT JUST TAKES WHAT IT WANTS
THE HONEY BADGERS HAVE A FAIRLY LONG BODY BUT DISTINCTLY THICK-SET BROAD SHOULDERS
THE HONEY BADGER DOES ALL THE WORK WHILE ALL THE OTHER ANIMALS JUST PICK UP THE SCRAPS
AT NIGHT TIME THE HONEY BADGER GOES HUNTING
HONEY BADGER DON’T CARE
HONEY BADGER JUST SMACKS THE SHIT OUT OF IT
#OH MY GOD #AND THEN HE PASSES OUT I AM ASSUMING FROM TOO MUCH WINE #I am sorry I am just dying here #just anthropomorphizing Sandor as a honey badger no big deal #okay so it’s not anthropomorphizing it’s the opposite of anthropomorphizing but there isn’t a word for it #SANDOR IS THE HUFFLEPUFFIEST OF ALL HUFFLEPUFFS #He’s basically the Hufflepuff poster child #loyalty and hard work and yellow and black #I mean yeah Gryffindor would be second choice because of bravery but imo it doesn’t fit quite as snugly #but sorting is never cut-and-dry and there will always be disagreements about it #anyway go watch that honey badger video #I think I’ve seen it before but applied to Sandor it’s like 3 times as funny #trying not to see that king cobra as a martell and failing
Look how much he hates Joffrey. You could see it in his face more and more how he dislikes Joffrey and his decisions, but here he hates him. Just cannot stand him.
(Have I reblogged this? Do I care?)
Fuck it. In for a gold dragon, in for a… gold dragon.
I always like to image he was looking at Sansa here, not the king.
And I like to imagine he looked at Sansa when Loras raised his hand, he looked to his right and that´s where Sansa was sitting.
Yep, fangirls notice everything.
