    Summary

    These violent delights have violent ends.

    With salt and smoke, fire and blood, iron and ice, the tides of fate wash clean the saviors of the continent. Two years after Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow ride south to win the Last War, Westeros is on the verge of destabilization. The Red Wolf—left simmering in fury in the North—is compelled to rejoin the Great Game.

    Summary

    All her life, Sansa Stark had been told to be a good girl, to stay on the path that life had laid out before her. When she was little, her mother would tell her to behave, to act like a lady, to be a good little girl. When he left for business, her father would kiss her cheek and ask her to be a good girl for her mother, who always had her hands full with Sansa’s brothers and Arya. Uncle Petyr had told her to be a good girl and not tell her parents about the secret games he played with her. Joffrey had warned her to be a good girl and not make him angry.

    And Sansa does what’s expected of her. She earns good marks in secondary, goes to university, gets her degree, meets Joffrey, falls in love. Once she graduates, she convinces herself that marriage is her next step, and when Joff proposes, she says ‘yes.’ But after he breaks her arm, pushing her down the stairs of the house they rent, she is more afraid to stay on the path than to leave it.

    Summary

    It had been all too easy to believe Tyrion when he’d said that Jon and Sansa don’t get along. That they perhaps even despised each other.

    That she should heed his warning that Dany’s party might even be faced with an ongoing power struggle when walking into Winterfell.

    Dany had not taken that last as seriously as she should have. But Tyrion had still been wrong – oh, so wrong. No, it had not been a power struggle between Jon and Sansa that she’d followed Jon back to, even if she is only now realising.

    Dany wanders away from the victory feast following the Long Night.

    She stumbles across two wolves in the godswood.

    Summary

    When Janos Slynt’s eyes halt in their perusal of the courtyard to fall on she and Jon, Sansa feels like her veins turn to ice.

    It is like she is in King’s Landing again, the way her body reacts. Fear makes her want to fall to her knees, the only place she knew that satiated Joffrey’s rage enough. She can hear the sound of her dress tearing by the hands of the very man she is now locking eyes with; her back aches with the feel of the flat of his blade hitting her.

    “Sansa?” Jon murmurs beside her, now turned completely to her. She realises she is shaking, but she can’t stop, and she can’t tear her eyes from Slynt. “What’s wrong? Are you alright?”

    Sansa opens her mouth to say something, anything, hopefully a command for him to take her back to his rooms, but instead a tumbling, rage-induced string of words come out. “I want you to kill him, Jon.”

    Summary

    The suggestion is so strong Arya wonders if she’s just seeing things, or if the two actually act so brazenly.

    When she see’s their hands linger on the other, all Arya can picture is Sansa’s hand on Jon’s naked shoulder that first night.

    When they take dinner in their chambers together, alone, Arya wonders what they’re really doing and feels so repulsed she destroys training dummies.

    When the four of them enjoy a night together, Arya on floor in front of the fire, Bran sitting in his wheeled chair and Jon and Sansa sharing a lounge, Sansa leaning against his chest and his arms resting lightly around her waist, Arya cannot even look in their direction for fear that she will spew out all the revolted thoughts she has on the matter.

    She hears whispers from the walls, of inappropriate embraces, of intimate touches, of quick kisses.

     

    //OR:

    Arya and Jon come back after the Great War and Arya notices something . . . odd between Jon and Sansa. She can't quite believe it to be true.
