People who love Brienne aren’t necessarily tall, ugly girls in love with a cute boy. Cersei fans don’t all want to do their brothers. Dany fans don’t have tragically poor taste in men. Roose fans don’t all want to kill their annoying bosses. But all Stannis fans do want to correct your grammar. It is known.

What are heavy? sea-sand and sorrow.
What are brief? today and tomorrow.
What are frail? spring blossoms and youth.
What are deep? the ocean and truth.

Christina Rossetti (via observando)

The characters in my novels are my own unrealised possibilities. That is why I am equally fond of them all and equally horrified by them. Each one has crossed a border that I myself have circumvented.
