They will garb your brother Robb in silks, satins, and velvets of a hundred different colors, while you live and die in black ringmail. He will wed some beautiful princess and father sons on her. You’ll have no wife, nor will you ever hold a child of your own blood in your arms. Robb will rule, you will serve. Men will call you a crow. Him they’ll call Your Grace. Singers will praise every little thing he does, while your greatest deeds all go unsung.
You’re an honourable man, and a just man.
Big men fall just as quick as little ones, if you put a sword through their hearts.
We’ll find you accommodations more suited to your name and as a reward for your accomplishments during the battle of Blackwater Bay. And when the time is right, you will be given a position fit for your talents so that you can serve your family and protect our legacy. And if you serve faithfully, you will be rewarded with a suitable wife.
Some people theorize that since the whole book series is called “A Song of Ice and Fire,” Jon is ice and Dany is fire, so it’s ultimately all about your characters.
Well, my ego would love that! [Laughs] Would that mean Jon becomes my lover? I would love for that to be the case!
…and approach them with an open heart.
They are behind us, they are still behind us, they are taking us one by one.
