Jon Snow defending Samwell Tarly // Lyanna Stark defending Howland Reed
Even then, Ser Alliser would not call an end. "On your feet, Ser Piggy," he called. "Pick up your sword." When the boy continued to cling to the ground, Thorne gestured to Halder. "Hit him with the flat of your blade until he finds his feet." Halder delivered a tentative smack to his foe's upraised cheeks. "You can hit harder than that," Thorne taunted. Halder took hold of his longsword with both hands and brought it down so hard the blow split leather, even on the flat. The new boy screeched in pain.
Jon Snow took a step forward. Pyp laid a mailed hand on his arm. "Jon, no," the small boy whispered with an anxious glance at Ser Alliser Thorne.
"None offered a name, but he marked their faces well so he could revenge himself upon them later. They shoved him down every time he tried to rise, and kicked him when he curled up on the ground. But then they heard a roar. 'That's my father's man you're kicking,' howled the she-wolf."
"Look at him, Halder," Jon urged, ignoring Thorne as best he could. "There's no honor in beating a fallen foe. He yielded." He knelt beside the fat boy.
When his fallen foes sought to ransom horse and armor, the Knight of the Laughing Tree spoke in a booming voice through his helm, saying, 'Teach your squires honor, that shall be ransom enough.' Once the defeated knights chastised their squires sharply, their horses and armor were returned. And so the little crannogman's prayer was answered...
Thorne smiled. "The Bastard wishes to defend his lady love, so we shall make an exercise of it. Rat, Pimple, help our Stone Head here." Rast and Albett moved to join Halder. "Three of you ought to be sufficient to make Lady Piggy squeal. All you need do is get past the Bastard."
"Stay behind me," Jon said to the fat boy.
Whoever he was, the old gods gave strength to his arm. The porcupine knight fell first, then the pitchfork knight, and lastly the knight of the two towers. None were well loved, so the common folk cheered lustily for the Knight of the Laughing Tree, as the new champion soon was called.

Daenerys Targaryen fancasts - The Unicorn/Lady Amalthea (The Last Unicorn)
I had the thrill of doing a panel with Peter S. Beagle, whose work I have admired for a long long time (if you have never read THE LAST UNICORN or A FINE AND PRIVATE PLACE, don’t call yourself a fantasy fan). — George R. R. Martin

on retrospective, do you think greatjon went too far declaring robb King?
No. That was a pretty good solution to a lot of the issues the North and Riverlands were having with the current administration and various claimants to the throne. Chances of success were good, too. As Tyrion reminds the Lannisters, for most of ACoK, Robb was winning the war.

Tyrion Lannister Appreciation Month 2022
I’ve done some Tyrion weeks in the past but @fandomenemy suggested we’ve done a Tyrion Month inspired by other asoiaf fandom events. It’s hard to find good posts in the Tyrion tag so I hope these prompts will motivate you.
The event will take place in the month of August 2022 and it will be focused on the book version of Tyrion (but you can use Peter Dinklage as a fancast). Metas, art, fics, edits and similar fan works will be reblogged here. If you can’t post on the exact day of the prompt(s) you chose it’s alright to post on another day of the same month. Just remember to use the tag Tyrion Month 2022
The prompts were created by me and @fandomenemy and they are under the cut. If you have questions about the event send me an ask on this blog or my main blog ( @tyshalannister ). Tag people who might be interested in participating! I hope you enjoy the event.

Hi! I was reading your Sansa blue dress meta and how it's negative for her. I think it's similar with Lyanna and blue roses. Ned remembered that Lyanna loved blue roses and Rhaegar crowned her with blue roses. When she was dying, she was holding those roses. Seems like blue is not lucky for stark girls
Form what Ned said, the roses were already black by the time he found Lyanna, but yes, that crown of blue roses was very unlucky omen for her (and Brandon, and Rickard, and all the people that died during the Rebellion).
Blue tends to be linked to death and bad fortune for most of the Starks, not only Lyanna and Sansa: Lysa letter was sealed in sky-blue wax, Jon Arryn’s house colors are cream and sky-blue and Ned trying to solve his murder led to his and his family’s doom, Jon vs the blue-eyed wight, Ned and his blue roses trauma, Bran following a blue star to find Bloodraven, etc)
This is probably because blue is also thematically liked to the Others, and they’re thematically linked to death:
A storm of rose petals blew across a blood-streaked sky, as blue as the eyes of death. (AGOT Eddard X)

Robert had been jesting with Jon and old Lord Hunter as the prince circled the field after unhorsing Ser Barristan in the final tilt to claim the champion's crown. Ned remembered the moment when all the smiles died, when Prince Rhaegar Targaryen urged his horse past his own wife, the Dornish princess Elia Martell, to lay the queen of beauty's laurel in Lyanna's lap. He could see it still: a crown of winter roses, blue as frost.

Middle row: Brandon Stark, Lyanna Stark, Benjen Stark, Ned Stark

If Aegon is fake, why do you think Varys chose not to reveal it to Kevan? Why lie to a dying man?
Because to Varys, it is irrelevant if Aegon's a real Targaryen. Aegon's a real Targaryen? He can work with that. Aegon's his best friend's kid? He can work with that. Aegon's a random commoner? He can work with that. What matters to Varys in his experiment is proving that it's upbringing that makes the monarch.
He's right, but he's also reduced the narrative down to component parts and boiled the soul out of it.

DAENERYS APPRECIATION MONTH 2021:
↳ Day 28: Targaryen legacy (ft. Jon Snow)
She felt very lonely all of a sudden. Mirri Maz Duur had promised that she would never bear a living child. House Targaryen will end with me. That made her sad.

The Grass and the Viper
Oberyn was ever the viper. Deadly, dangerous, unpredictable. No man dared tread on him. I was the grass. Pleasant, complaisant, sweet-smelling, swaying with every breeze. Who fears to walk upon the grass? But it is the grass that hides the viper from his enemies and shelters him until he strikes.
