Arya if Robb and Catelyn survived?

7 posts in this topic

What do you think would of happen to Arya if Robb and Catelyn survived? Would she of stayed with them in the Riverlands?

I feel she would've gotten frustrated with not being able to fight and left, leading her to Bravo. 

What about the Hound? Would he have stayed and fought for Robb?

Personally I think Arya would stay with her brother no matter what, The lone Wolves die when winter comes after all. The Hound would most likely not stay and fight with Robb, all he wanted was enough cash to leave the war and stop fighting

Unlikely, Robb was desperate because he let his cock do his thinking for him and we get a hint of this desperation just before Tyrion marries Sansa, he advocates returning her and suing for peace, Tywin refuses stating that Robb would just marry her off to a riverlord or northern lord to shore up his alliances, specifically he mentions the Mallisters, Blackwoods, Manderlys and Umbers, but it's not hard to assume he would sell her to the Freys in addition to Edmure and i can easily see Cat putting her in a dress and marching her to the sept and telling her to do her duty.

Arya is already betrothed to a Frey, she wouldn't marry till she came of age.

We have seen pre-menarche marriages.

The one involving Tyrek Lannister, IIRC, to a baby (Fairweather? Merryweather?), for instance.

So the scenario painted by Livesundersink is quite probable - Robb will make others pay for his Oathbreaking.

And while Arya is contemplating - in random order - murder, fratricide, matricide, suicide, running away to Essos, jumping the bones of the first stableboy she comes across and screaming about not being a virgin from the rooftops - Westeros will crow about how honourable the Starks are ...

Presumably they'd be captive in the Riverlands and it would be a while before Robb was returned to KL to surrender to Tywin, so I think things shake out the same for Arya. Maybe she would bail back to Westeros faster, but I think she'd still have ended up with the FM.

Would she have the same list? Probably, I don't think she's added the Freys yet, otherwise she wouldn't get any sleep.

Yes that is true, but Robb's mistake was to accept a betrothal for Arya when he did not have custody of her. we see later in Storm that he gives her up for dead as no one has seen or heard of her since Ned's death. I was merely referring to Robb's desperation to mend ties with the frey's by any means he could, hence if Sansa had been released from King's Landing he would have offered her to the frey's instead.
