#these two women right here #let me tell you about these two #they both believed with all their hearts that knights were chivalrous #that there really was such a thing as honour #that the villains were clearly the villains #and right from wrong was always black and white #but then real life happened #and even though they were disillusioned #and they found out life was nothing like the songs #they didn’t give up and they didn’t give in #they did not become completely demoralized or malevolent #like so many others who are subjected to the game of thrones do #bc the thing is #sansa is still gentle and kind #just now she wears her courtesy as her coat of mail and never reveals her true feelings #bc she learned what happens when you trust and believe #and brienne is still trying to be the honourable knight #but realizes she’s one of the few honest and loyal oath keepers left #and she has seen the horrific deeds other “knights” have done #but now they are no longer the naive girls they once were #and they realize there is no black and white #there is only grey #but they choose to be the good in this corrupt world

Brave. Sansa took a deep breath.
