“I am a S t a r k. Yes, I can be b r a v e.”
Sansa Stark ~ The Bride
If you ever call me sister again I’ll have you strangled in your sleep.
Catelyn Stark fucks with people’s preconceptions of female characters because she exists in the space between the Evil Stepmother trope and the Good Mother trope.
The idea that a woman can both be a loving wife and mother and STILL hold grudges, not treat a child well, just fucks with people’s heads.
Like, oh my god, how dare a woman be multi-faceted and complex. How dare she not conform to tired, worn out stereotypes.
