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)
Jaime Lannister: It must be strange for you… coming into this room. I was standing right here when it happened. He was very brave, your brother. Your father too. They didn’t deserve to die like that. Nobody deserves to die like that.
Eddard Stark: But you just stood there and watched.
Jaime Lannister: Five hundred men just stood there and watched. All the great knights of the Seven Kingdoms. You think anyone said a word, lifted a finger? No, Lord Stark. Five hundred men and this room was silent as a crypt. Except for the screams, of course, and the mad king laughing.
”So those are your gifts from me, my sweet Sansa… Harry, the Eyrie, and Winterfell.”
“…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…”
Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
Once I understand each word the caterpillar said,
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
And shared a conversation with the housefly in my bed.
Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets,
And joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow,
Once I spoke the language of the flowers…
How did it go?
How did it go?where the sidewalk ends, shel slverstein
“’Sansa was a lady at three, always so courteous and eager to please. She loved nothing so well as tales of knightly valor. Men would say she had my look, but she will grow into a woman far more beautiful than I ever was, you can see that. I often sent away her maid so I could brush her hair myself. She had auburn hair, lighter than mine, and so thick and soft… the red in it would catch the light of the torches and shine like copper.’”
What I’d love to say to all the Sansa haters. (Well, besides “FUCK YOU’).
If anybody knows where the quote came from, please let me know. Thanks!
Seven hells, do you know how long I’ve been waiting for someone else to say this?
*HUGS* Let us be friends henceforth, and defend our brave queen! :D
I’m not a Sansa stan, but there is truth here regardless.
