They called him the Young Wolf. He was born to be Lord of Winterfell but when the War of the Five Kings started he was one of them, crowned at fifteen after the battle of the Whispering Wood where he captured the Kingslayer. It’s said that when he raised to accept his crown, all men and their families knelt to swear feilty, and all the wolves in the Seven Kingdoms howled at once. He never lost a battle, and some say that he put a bit of himself in his Grey Wind every time he rode against another army, killing enemies with a sword and with his bare teeth both. But what the stories won’t tell you is that Robb Stark had his mother’s eyes, and he always had a place for bastards and broken things at his table. He was terrible at sums, but maps and houses came to him so naturally, as if he had been born to be a king and know every piece of land and the men who served him. Winterfell’s name was the one he cried in battle and he was every bit his father’s son, but family, duty and honor were part of him just as much as winter. He was a good king, kind and noble and just, and when he died the North died with him. But they raised once more and remembered. The Young Wolf is nothing more than a song now… and it’s the loudest one of them.
No but seriously, why was Sandor in that trailer but not Bran, Tywin, Stannis or Mel?
ALSO HBO YOU GUYS ARE SUCH FUCKING TEASES. I HAVE PROMO SEASON BLUE BALLS RIGHT NOW. GIVE ME SOMETHING GOOD.
LIKE TEN MINUTES OF ROBB LOOKING AT THINGS.
I’d pay to watch 10 minutes of Robb staring at anything, tbh.
Robb, get up. Get up and walk out, please, please. Save yourself. If not for me, for Jeyne. “Jeyne?” Robb grabbed the edge of the table and forced himself to stand. “Mother,” he said, “Grey Wind...”
He stood shaking with his hands half-clenched and the rain running down his cheeks. Gods forgive him, Catelyn prayed in silence. He is only a boy, and he had no other choice.
lucemferre05 asked, Robb Stark + my emotions
They will garb your brother Robb in silks, satins, and velvets of a hundred different colors, while you live and die in black ringmail. He will wed some beautiful princess and father sons on her. You’ll have no wife, nor will you ever hold a child of your own blood in your arms. Robb will rule, you will serve. Men will call you a crow. Him they’ll call Your Grace. Singers will praise every little thing he does, while your greatest deeds all go unsung.
So I think we’re all agreed that this shot is probably from Karstark’s execution. I have a lot of feelings about that scene because it’s basically the microcosm of Robb’s character/story. He insists on executing Karstark himself because of honor and Starkiness and other ideals and botches the…
QUIT STEALING MY FEELINGS.
(But seriously, this is exactly how I feel about Robb. Also, thank the gods for Richard Madden.)
