Let’s talk Game of Thrones.
Why is everyone so hard on poor little Sansa? Truth be told, she’s one of my favorite characters. I sort of understand why people don’t like her- she’s made some pretty big mistakes and has done some pretty awful things. But she strikes me as one of the most realistic characters. Because let’s face it, fantasy world or not, a teenage girl is still a teenage girl.
I think everyone like’s to think they’d be a badass if they were thrust into the GoT world. A Brienne, a Jaime, a Tyrion, or Ned at the very least. Even Samwell Tarly does some pretty cool stuff while remaining incredibly relatable. But Sansa…. Sansa starts off annoying, is constantly scared and indecisive, and learns very slowly how the game is played. Isn’t that, however, how most of us would be? Maybe everyone hates on Sansa because in her position, we would be just like her. We wouldn’t be incredibly clever, amazing fighters and tacticians, pure of heart and noble beyond reproach; we would be like Sansa. Stumbling along and barely getting by.
What I’m trying to say is, I like Sansa, and I did a cute little painting of her and her pet dire wolf, Lady.
While I was painting, I had a few friends over who were painting as well! So while I was fighting with the tree, I got to keep an eye on this little beauty developing:(I hope L doesn’t mind me sharing it!)
