Q
You say you find peter creepy with sansa but you like sansa/sandor. What's the difference? They're both older.

Hi, thanks for the question :)

I actually think there’s a huge difference. I want to start by saying that the portrayals in the books are quite different to the show, particularly with Sandor. In the books he’s in his late twenties, whereas in the show he’s played by Rory McCann who’s 45, so it does change the visual dynamic. I know a lot of people find the age difference creepy, but in the books they have less of an age difference than Dany and Drogo do, and it’s the books where I really loved their interactions. His characterisation is different in the show too, less developed as they have so little time for all of the characters they have on the show (although they did a good job of it in the last episode with his scene with Arya).

The reason I was so drawn to sansan in the books is that Sandor is this character who was disfigured at such a young age by his own brother and whose father then covered it up. He’s been abused and betrayed by his family, and as a result has gone through his whole life having people be afraid of him and recoil from him because of his face. Then the very brother who abused him is rewarded by becoming a knight, and he sees the hypocrisy of the whole system: knights are thought of as protectors of the people, but really they kill and rape. He has no time for knights and ladies, he sees the true evils of the world better than most. He’s such an emotionally damaged character, and after everything that’s happened in his life you’d expect him to be full of hate, and in some ways he is.

Yet when he first meets Sansa he thinks she’s like everyone else, playing at being polite, but he comes to realise she’s a truly good person. And after being abused and disregarded his whole life, his first instinct is still to try and protect her. He saves her life several times and is the only one in King’s Landing who genuinely cares for her as a person, not her claim. Not because she’s the key to Winterfell. Just when he’s about given up on the whole human race, she gives him hope again. Sansa learns a lot from him as well, as she’s initially very naive and taken in by how people look and trusting the pretty things they say. She’s always loved the stories about dashing and gallant young knights, but he shows her that knights are killers, and that what’s on the outside doesn’t always match the inside. Joffrey is a perfect example of this.

Even long after they’re parted in the books, they refer to one another all the time. Sansa dreams about him in the Eeyrie, and almost every new man she meets she compares to him in some way. She even mis-remembers that they kissed. It’s definitely a beauty and the beast story, but the strength comes from her character, not his. Her goodness rescues and changes him, so I like it because of that aspect too. Having said this, she’s still too young (both literally and emotionally) in the books at the present time and he’s still too damaged and tormented, like with the Blackwater scene and his PTSD reaction. So although I do ship them, I don’t want anything romantic to happen until she’s older and more sure of herself, while he needs some Quiet Isle therapy first. (I buy into the Gravedigger theory, for sure)

With Petyr, it’s completely different as he’s not interested in protecting her, he just wants to re-create the (one-sided) relationship he used to have with her mother, and he forces physical contact on her several times. He’s not interested in who Sansa is, but who he can mould her to be for him.


Whats in store for Sansa? I cant even dare hope.
