#sansa endures #it’s what she does #she’s tortured day after day and all she can do is smile and thank the people who torture her #all she can do is look straight ahead and will herself not to cry as the horrifying death of her family #of the people she loved #is shoved in her face in more and more grotesque ways #and the fact that after all of that #after all she is made to go through #she can still find it within herself to be kind #that’s the truest sort of strength #that’s a strength few people could barely dream of #it’s sansa’s kindness that defines her #the fact that she can live through what she’s lived through and still look for goodness in people #it’s remarkable (via whoistorule)

The northern girl had a wild beauty, as he recalled, though however bright a torch might burn it could never match the rising sun.
"I also tried to provide a certain moment of pathos with the death. I mean, Joffrey, as monstrous as he is — and certainly he’s just as monstrous in the books as he is in the TV show, and Jack has brought some incredible acting chops to the role that somehow makes him even more loathsome than he is on the page — but Joffrey in the books is still a 13-year-old kid. And there’s kind of a moment there where he knows that he’s dying and he can’t get a breath and he’s kind of looking at Tyrion and at his mother and at the other people in the hall with just terror and appeal in his eyes—you know, “Help me mommy, I’m dying.” And in that moment, I think even Tyrion sees a 13-year-old boy dying before him. So I didn’t want it to be entirely, “Hey-ho, the witch is dead.” I wanted the impact of the death to still strike home on to perhaps more complex feelings on the part of the audience, not necessarily just cheering."-George R.R. Martin — Entertainment Weekly: George R.R. Martin on why Joffrey died THAT way (via perksofbeingalannister)
The story of the Titanic is very personal to each person who hears it, almost like a biblical story. This giant ship, all these people in the middle of the ocean, this iceberg, the warnings. What would it have been like to be there on that fateful night?
And later I dreamed that maid again, slaying a savage giant in a castle built of snow.
