    Is there romantic love between Ned and Catelyn?

    They sleep in each other's arms with her head resting on his chest. He kisses her tears away and they repeatedly refer to each other as "my love." We wouldn't expect this behavior between siblings or parent and child. It's all clear-cut romantic gestures between lovers.

    Is there romantic love between Ned and Catelyn?

    I really can't fathom someone reading Ned and Cat's POVs and came away without seeing romantic love. They aren't written as dutiful or merely affectionate. I mean.... Ned and Cat seem to think so: Inside, Catelyn was waiting. She cried out when she saw him, ran to him, and embraced him fiercely. Ned was lost. "Then how? Why are you here, my love? What is this place?" "As you say, my lord." Catelyn lifted her face, and Ned kissed her. Her maimed fingers clutched against his back with a desperate strength, as if to hold him safe forever in the shelter of her arms. He felt Catelyn tremble in his arms. Her scarred hands clung to him. "If," she said, "what then, my love?" He wanted to drift off to a dreamless sleep in his own bed with his arms wrapped tight around his lady, Catelyn. There was no way to soften the blow, so she told him straight. "I am so sorry, my love. Jon Arryn is dead." So when they had finished, Ned rolled off and climbed from her bed, as he had a thousand times before. Ned kissed the tears from her eyes before they could fall. "Thank you, my lady," he whispered. "This is hard, I know." It was a stirring sight, yet it did not lift her heart. She wondered if indeed her heart would ever lift again. Oh, Ned.... . I have lost my Ned, the rock my life was built on Winter comes for all of us, Catelyn thought. For me, it came when Ned died. She told herself that there had been no time, but the truth was that food had lost its savor in a world without Ned. When they took his head off, they killed me too. Bones, Catelyn thought. This is not Ned, this is not the man I loved, the father of my children. His hands were clasped together over his chest, skeletal fingers curled about the hilt of some longsword, but they were not Ned's hands, so strong and full of life. They had dressed the bones in Ned's surcoat, the fine white velvet with the direwolf badge over the heart, but nothing remained of the warm flesh that had pillowed her head so many nights, the arms that had held her. They could do as they wished with her; imprison her, rape her, kill her, it made no matter. She had lived too long, and Ned was waiting Our children, Ned,, all our sweet babes. Rickon, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Robb . . . Robb . . . please, Ned please, make it stop, make it stop hurting . . . No, don't, don't cut my hair, Ned loves my hair.
  3. I hate Sansa so therefore I'm going to twist things around and deliberately misinteret the text while also nitpicking which quotes I use to prove a point. And if the text proves me wrong, then I'll ignore that too cause Sansa is mean and a brat and secretly hates her family.

      Well....obviously. Sansa is the worst! (It is known blah blah referential joke more blah.)

      In other news: Sansa is pretty fucking awesome as a character study. To say the absolute LEAST.

      She should spread her legs for Sandor. It is known.

  4. If your only argument against someone else is to attack the poster...it says a whole lot more about you than it does me.

  5. Why yes, I do think viewing ASOIAF through a feminist lens is a perfectly valid way to better understand and study the text.
