Tyrion Lannister had claimed that most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it, but Jon was done with denials.
He was who he was; Jon Snow, bastard and oathbreaker, motherless, friendless, and damned.
For the rest of his life –however long that might be– he would be condemned to be an outsider, the silent man standing in the shadows who dares not speak his true name.
daenerys targaryen ♥ sansa stark
if ever i am queen. i will make her love me.
No one will ever marry me for love. But lying came easy to her now.
“Stay close to me,” Jeyne said, “Don’t leave me.”
“I will be right beside you,” Theon promised.

►[20/20] a song of ice and fire by george r.r. martin
“Obsidian does not burn.”
“Dragonglass,” Pate said. “The smallfolk call it dragonglass.” Somehow that seemed important.
“They do,” mused Alleras, the Sphinx, “and if there are dragons in the world again…”
“Dragons and darker things,” said Leo. “The grey sheep have closed their eyes, but the mastiff sees the truth. Old powers waken. Shadows stir. An age of wonder and terror will soon be upon us, an age for gods and heroes.”

A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE ♔ Cersei Lannister, born in 266 A.C. at Casterly Rock
Cersei is as gentle as King Maegor, as selfless as Aegon the Unworthy, as wise as Mad Aerys. She never forgets a slight, real or imagined. She takes caution for cowardice and dissent for defiance. And she is greedy. Greedy for power, for honor, for love.
