btw i’ll do the rest of the prompts tomorrow because i didn’t get much sleep last night and now i’m super tired
robb and jon almost fall out of window when they awake to seeing that much snow covering the ground and it’s only the fact that ned walks past that stops them. of course as soon as they’ve eaten breakfast they slide out of one of the windows (since there’s too much snow to use the doors) and spend the entire morning building warring snowmen.
sansa’s desperate to go and join the ‘big boys’ as she always puts it but there’s no way cat is trusting them with their five year old sister so ned is forced to attempt to climb out the window that strictly speaking is too small for him and yet he manages it anyway, only to have sansa declare less than half an hour later that it’s too cold.
instead she attempts to get arya to play court with her, arya who is far more interested at running around the house as fast as she can to avoid her big sister, her parents and frankly anyone who tries to stop her from being as mobile as possible. at three fast movement is still a novelty to her and it’s really only the fact the window’s closed that stops her from escaping out of it.
even bran who’s just a baby decides to make as much noise as possible.
the afternoon doesn’t get any easier with sansa complaining that no one’s playing with her and arya disappearing for several hours and both boys trampling snow everywhere.
by the time cat and ned manage to get them all in bed all cat wants to do is sleep, she doesn’t even mind that she’s sitting on the sofa still. well until ned kisses her softly and she remembers why she goes through all of this hassle.
aegon’s bright red as he stammers out his question to sansa. apparently he told his family he’s got a girlfriend in an attempt to get them off his back and now that they’re coming down next week they’ve insisted on meeting her. sansa barely lets him finish before agreeing to helping him out, she might have only met him at the start of term but she likes him well enough and she loves the fact that he sees her as a good enough friend to ask this of her.
she only realises that she’s nervous when she’s discarded almost every dress in her wardrobe a few hours before she’s due to meet them all at the restaurant. and margaery has to find something for her and do her make up too, her hands are shaking so much.
aegon’s dad is terrifying of course (but at least she’d been warned of that in advance) but his mum is lovely and sansa loves her at first sight. his sister and aunt both seem insistent on telling her as many embarrassing baby stories about aegon as possible and his uncle barely speaks to anyone but dany. she loves them all though and she feels horrible about lying to them (although she does start to understand why he lied in the first place as rhae teases him about finally getting a girl).
and as he walks her back to hers it feels perfectly natural to hold hands the entire way.
truth or dare
oberyn is the one who suggests the game and the rest of them have drunk too much to remember what a bad idea it would be, there are far too many secrets in their group of friends to start demanding truths.
it starts tamely enough, with demands for oberyn to run around the garden half naked or for ashara to finally reveal the story of how she lost her virginity. and then it’s arthur’s turn and oberyn dares him to kiss the prettiest girl in the room. elia’s sure he’s going to choose his sister, everyone knows ashara’s the prettiest girl anywhere. but she sees him move closer and closer to her until suddenly his lips are on hers and she’s kissing him back. she had almost forgotten what this felt like, to kiss someone this passionately.
and it’s only then that she remembers rhaegar’s presence at her side and she has no idea how to explain this to her boyfriend.
sansa isn’t entirely convinced this is necessary, but apparently they don’t look enough alike to pass as sisters and so married it is. she’s done her homework well enough to know that the compound doesn’t care about the whole ‘gay marriage is a sin’ thing as long as they show good family values. and judging from the enthusiastic welcome they get apparently a just-married young lesbian couple is just what the community wants.
of course once they’re in it’s exactly what sansa was dreading because how on earth is she supposed to hide the fact she’s in love with margaery when she has to actually show it. and every time margaery goes to kiss her she has to remind herself that it’s just pretend for her, that it’s all just an act.
stannis is one hundred percent sure this is renly’s fault. if it hadn’t been for the fact that he had brought (yet another) unsuitable boyfriend home for dinner, then stannis wouldn’t have felt the need to give him a lecture on how if he really had to bring his boyfriends of one week to sunday dinner then he could at least choose decent ones. which is what prompted yet another argument which prompted davos to handcuff (who knows where he got them from) the two of them together with the promise that it wouldn’t be unlocked until they sorted their ‘dumb argument’ out.
they sit in silence for over an hour before renly offers with a small shrug the information that he’s actually been seeing loras for several months now. and stannis frowns and admits that he seemed politer than most of the guys that renly had dated in the past, and he just doesn’t want renly to get hurt by guys who don’t care about him because he hasn’t got the time to put him back together after a breakup. it ends up being their first civil conversation in months, years even and stannis makes a mental note not to be too angry with his best friend when he finally gets around to unlocking the damm handcuffs.

Something really cute that Lupita Nyong’o does on Instagram is pose her dress, shoes, accessories and awards/memorabilia together. As a Lupita stan and a photographer myself, I could not love this any more than I already do. Way too cute!
