Sansa Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Is there already a thread like this? I couldn't find one. Anyway's what are your thoughts on her? I heard people say that in the books she has a lot more malice in her inner dialogues, and that she is even kissing Petyr on the regular compared to her disgust the first time? :o Is she tricking him???

Yes, it seems so. The last post of the thread:

*spoiler tagged for length*

This post is to announce that this iteration is the final one in the Pawn to Player series until the publication of new Sansa material in The Winds of Winter or a released sample chapter. We will be officially on hiatus until that time, after which we plan to return with more of the rereads and rethinks we have all come to love.

Speaking of love, the amount of appreciation and support you have all given to us throughout this journey has been phenomenal, and surely would satisfy Saint Valentine himself. Upon the recent completion of our last and longest-running projects, we find ourselves filled with the satisfaction of seeing this series through to its successful end, the payoff of long hours of research and careful writing by all of you collaborators, to whom we wish to extend a special word of gratitude for dedicating your time, energies and talent to broaden the scope of Sansa’s arc whilst at the same time making these threads as best and enjoyable as possible. In twenty-five months of existence, you’ve not left out any topic that could be connected even tangentially to Sansa’s storyline unexamined and undiscussed at one point or another, from psychological analyses to feminist theory to foreshadowing to fun crackpots, and all that falls in-between, so there’s all sorts of material to satisfy anyone’s interest.

We believe that at the root of the success and longevity of the Pawn to Player has been the fact that this was always a learning experience, both for us as the hosts, our long-standing members, and, we imagine, our many faithful lurkers. When the first thread was opened two years ago, the thought of converting it into a long-running and prolific series of threads dedicated to one character wasn’t a goal we had in mind; we did not set out to provide answers but to find them by means of a chapter-by-chapter critical re-read of all Sansa POVs, to unveil and rediscover things buried or that went unnoticed on a first read, and even in this our 21st iteration, that premise holds true.

Continuing its natural evolution, the Pawn to Player went from a thread for residual discussion stemming from the re-reads to the step-by-step building of what’d become its trademark: the in-depth essays about a determined topic. That in time resulted in a large number of pieces that we now display in the Resources master list, which we hope the next wave of readers will continue to find enjoyable and informative. This Resources section may seem like a juggernaut of established knowledge, but in truth, that too requires posters to approach the collected essays with an open mind, and a willingness to engage critically with the ideas deposited there. And of course, there is the rereads, which can be read from start to finish, or simply by selecting a chapter that you might desire a deeper analysis on. The reread was the starting point to all this, and it is integral to understanding the discussions and the work we pursued in during the rethinks.

Ultimately, we hope that the Pawn to Player's legacy will be that we began a more constructive and comprehensive analysis into Sansa's story, one that is not over by any means.

We hope you will join us again when the time is due to resume these threads.

With love,

Brashcandy and Milady of York.

As you can see, I didn't contribute, I just enjoyed the wonderful work of all those who did
