My beloved wife. I’ve missed you terribly.
Remember what you are and what you’re not.
Just thinking about Ramsay…
So, I know Ramsay is horrible (especially book Ramsay, holy shit, but let’s not think about him because, ew, no) and really caused a lot of upheaval but here’s the thing about him that I can really respect.
The North is a very old place, full of tradition and hard knocks and sturdy people…and Ramsay is a Northerner through and through and that is ALL HE WANTS TO BE.
While everyone else (besides ths Starks) are scrambling around for the throne, the right to rule the 7 kingdoms, all Ramsay wants is to be recognized as a Bolton, to take his claim on the Dreadfort and then the title of Warden of the North. That is literally it. He never showed one inkling of wanting anything more than the North.
I mean, sure, the Boltons really went about it in an underhanded way, but their desire for the North echoes the Starks, with their lineage being able to trace back to the First Men right alongside them, and it just shows that the people from there are a whole different breed and power honestly means less than their pride and their homeland.
