“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”
Arya Stark, A Game of Thrones
From her first POV chapter, Arya could never truly reconcile the ideals of her society with her own personal beliefs. Her belief in the importance of women, her championing a butcher’s boy against the future King, her stringent code of justice and morality, always clashing with societal constraints and expectations. Its no wonder she struggled with feelings of inadequacy. She just couldn’t fit into the mold, though she tried her best to.
#ARYA STARK #WHO KNOWS BETTER THAN TO JUDGE PEOPLE BY THEIR SOCIAL CLASS #WHO BEFRIENDS ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE ON HER JOURNEY #WHO BELIEVES IN ALL TYPES OF EQUALITY #IN HER FIRST POV CHAPTER SHE RELFECTS TWICE THAT LIFE ISN’T FAIR #WHEN IT COMES TO FEMINISM #AND HOW JON IS TREATED BECAUSE HE IS A BASTARD #she is only a child when she thinks these thoughts and that’s incredible imo
Her hair was full of sunlight, but there was mockery in her smile.
