This is important. Could very well help those struggling to read these books. Don’t leave anyone in the dark.
Please don’t hark on Sansa here. People have used these early scenes out of context to argue that Sansa is a bully towards little sister, but Sansa is in the right here, probably covering for Arya. Arya just called out for one of their guests really rudely by an abelist nickname. If anything, she’s saving Arya from making further rude (and downright abelist) queries that would get her in trouble.
For those who think I’m reaching, this mirrors another scene from Book 1 that is also misinterpreted to view Sansa as Arya’s tormentor when actually Sansa is using her natural gift for diplomacy to save her sister from the consequences of her own uncouthness (I’m not barking on Arya either. She has a child’s filter which she learns to curb as the series goes on).
is that not what the book’s about?
