Sansa Stark: OH BOY! I CAN'T WAIT TO GET TO KINGS LANDING AND SPEND TIME WITH PRINCE JOFFREY. HE IS DREAMY. I AM GOING TO BE QUEEN OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS! LIFE IS GREAT!!
Sansa Stark: (Falls head over heels for metaphorical inbred monster)
(Forsakes her own sister, collaterally causing the death of an innocent animal, so that foremention inbred Crown Prince might still like her)
(Rewards the loyal service of elderly woman who has committed her life to making sure Sansa Stark grows up to become a proper noble lady with cruelty and malice)
(Refuse to look directly into the venomous, lethal, gaping metaphorical mouth of the Royal Family and instead views them as good people)
(Does the opposite of everything she was taught growing up by refusing to use reason or honor in response to her Lord Father, the most reasonable and honorable man in the Kingdom, and the decisions he made in strict concern for her safety)
(Believes her charm can turnaround a political and royal coup, including political play, murder, and the manipulation of her family and herself)
(After the arrest of her Lord Father and the murder of essentially everyone that cared about her, is more concerned about her standing with the people responsible for them)
(Not concerned about her missing and believed dead sister)
A FEW YEARS LATER...
Jon Snow: WE HAVE TO SAVE RICKON! WE CAN'T LEAVE HIM TO DIE. WE HAVE TO AT LEAST TRY...
Sansa Stark: JON, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU THIS SO I'M JUST GOING TO SAY IT- YOU'RE BEING AN IDIOT. LOOK, I SURVIVED AT KINGS LANDING. DID YOU? NO. I DIDN'T THINK YOU DID. I DID. YOU WERE UP NORTH PLAYING IN THE SNOW AND KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR... ZOMBIES...? I THINK YOU EXPLAINED THEM AS ZOMBIES... REGARDLESS, I WAS BUSY SURVIVING AT KINGS LANDING WHILE YOU MADE SNOW CASTLES. I THINK I AM MUCH MORE CAPABLE OF MAKING THE DECISIONS THAT ARE BEST FOR THE FAMILY... AND MIND YOU, I MEAN THE STARK FAMILY... NOT THE SNOW FAMILY OR THE PARTLY-STARK FAMILY. BELIEVE ME, I SURVIVED AT KINGS LANDING, I AM BETTER EQUIPED TO MAKE THE DECIIONS HERE.
Jon Snow: .........
