“I want to sleep with you – to fall asleep and to sleep… Simply – sleep. And nothing further. No, also: to burrow my head into your left shoulder, my arm on your right shoulder – and nothing further. No, also: to know even in the deepest sleep that it is you. And also: to hear how your heart resounds. And – to kiss your heart.”
— - Marina Tsvetaeva, from a letter to Rainer Maria Rilke (via syntaxonomy)
HOUSE BARATHEON OF STORM’S END is one of the Great Houses of Westeros, and is the principal house in the stormlands, which they rule as Lords Paramount of the Stormlands. Their seat, Storm’s End, is an ancient castle raised by the Storm Kings from the now-extinct House Durrandon. House Baratheon was created when Orys Baratheon, one of Aegon I Targaryen’s generals, his closest companion, and his rumored bastard half-brother, took Argella Durrandon to wife. Through the female line, House Baratheon descents from King Durran Godsgrief, who founded the kingdom of the Storm Kings during the Age of Heroes.
