"Dark Sister was made for nobler tasks than slaughtering sheep. She has a thirst for blood."- Daemon Targ about Dark Sister. "My lady has a thirst. Whenever she comes out to dance, she likes a drop of red."- Lyn Corbay about Lady Forlorn.
Oh anon, I wish I had the in-depth knowledge of asoiaf lore to do this justice.
Whenever sheep are mentioned I flash to Nymeria and Drogon both, who hunt and eat both sheep and people. Similarly with dancing, which recalls Arya's waterdancing and the Dance of Dragons, both variants of fighting.
Dark Sister is in the possession of Bloodraven and Lady Forlorn in the possession of Lyn Corbray (corvus = raven) of the three ravens sigil. Lyn likes "boys", same as Bloodraven lured the boy Bran ("raven") to his cave.
Somehow these images connect. Sadly, I don't have the brainpower to do it. Let alone figure in the backstory to both swords.
... @aegor-bamfsteel ? @eonweheraldodemanwe? You're both more versed in asoiaf history than I ever will be! Do you have any thoughts on the matter? 🙂

I was wondering if birds enjoy flying and I found this story when I searched.
Image description: two screen shots of a Quora question and answer.
Text reads: Do birds feel a thrill or happiness when flying? Basically, is it fun for birds to fly?
Answer by Bob Cormack, Ranch kid, engineer, mountain climber, flyer, ex-adventurer
I have observed ravens in the Grand Canyon that I believe were just playing. I was hiking down the Tanner Trail from the S. Rim and there was a wind from the north. These ravens were soaring up the canyon wall on the updraft created by the wind. When they reached the top, they would fold their wings (sort of like a stooping falcon) and dive to the bottom at very high speed. When they got to the bottom, they would soar up again.
There didn't seem to be reason for what they were doing except play.
But there's more:
The people with me started cheering and clapping as the ravens dove past. One raven in particular, seemed to respond to this and always came directly overhead on the dive to the bottom. After a while a raven (the same one?) started pulling out of its dive right overhead and shot over the canyon. Then (and I have never seen this before) the raven folded one wing and did what, for all effects, was a "snap roll".
That set everyone off on cheering the raven on, and it preformed this stunt 4 or 5 times more.
If this raven wasn't having fun and showing off (for humans, even!), then what was it doing?
