… because honestly I really want like an uprising of the Old Gods and the Tree People and all that and they just go and decimate all the non believers and they go to create a new Westeros with House Stark. Also I could read your Sansa meta all day I swear. Some of my friends don’t like her and I just point them to you and I am like “this is your homework I will not speak to you again until you read all of this”.
Yes, yes, the Southerners… many of them will die, though perhaps not all. If Dany conquers like I think she ultimately will (I mean, she could also die in the attempt, but I lean towards conquering lately) she is likely to take out several houses and spare only the smallfolk and a few choice lords (who have no doubt been given a stamp of approval by Varys, who will somehow live longer than even I will). I do think the great terror that is the Others will make it at least to the riverlands somehow, but I currently only think that for dramatic effect and can’t remember where I got that from, so that may very well be uninformed and stupid. I think that the Children of the Forest and Bran and the Reeds (if they’re still alive) will inadvertently be involved in some great evil, or else something not necessarily evil but determined to wipe out Westeros, so Sansa could be a part of that, but I think her roots will stay mostly political (but I very much hope they get more magical, and I think that they will, I haven’t done a magic reread yet, just a political one) and I think she is likely to try to stop anything that destroys, because they’d be destroying Winterfell, too. I don’t think they’ll hand out any special dispensation for those ascended from the First Men (though I guess they might, GRRM could make that make sense).
I think Sansa’s arc might touch on the Others in her relation to other!Gregor, whatever happens to Sandor and potentially discovering Lady Stoneheart, actually. So not on a huge scale, in a tree walking, Westeros destroying way, but you will get something!
And thank you so much for saying that! Really, I’d like my job to be “go around and discuss ASOIAF” with a concentration in “SANSA!”, so that means a lot to me! :D
