They broke their fast in silence until Sandor said,
“This thing about your Mother…”
“It doesn’t matter.” Arya said in a dull voice “I know she’s dead, I saw her in a dream.”
The Hound looked at her a long time, then nodded. No more was said of it.

I seriously need to get over my infatuation with Sandor Clegane. It will only end in tears.
(GUYS GUYS GUYS, PLEASE, NO SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS! ,:| )
I only realize just now that the thing Arya and Sandor’s scenes were missing most of all in the show was the Tremendously Depressing Rain and sense of oppressive danger.

He saw Sansa crying herself to sleep at night, and he saw Arya watching in silence and holding her secrets hard in her heart. There were shadows all around them. One shadow was as dark as ash, with the terrible face of a hound. ~Bran, aGoT~

“Who are you?” he would ask her every day.
“No one,” she would answer, she who had been Arya of House Stark, Arya Underfoot, Arya Horseface. She had been Arry and Weasel too, and Squab and Salty, Nan the cupbearer, a grey mouse, a sheep, the ghost of Harrenhal but not for true, not in her heart of hearts. In there she was Arya of Winterfell, the daughter of Lord Eddard Stark and Lady Catelyn, who had once had brothers named Robb and Bran and Rickon, a sister named Sansa, a direwolf called Nymeria, a half brother named Jon Snow. In there she was someone … but that was not the answer that he wanted.”
I wish that Arya and Sandor could be pals forever and the camping would never end because then I would live in a happy world. Hell, I would read this spin-off. Where is it?
I want it too!
Arya and Sandor: The Legendary Journeys! :D I would so watch the hell out of that show. Quick, somebody write a theme song!!! :D :D :D
FRENEMIES FOR LYFE ~~~~
reblogging again because there ain’t no roadtrip like an awkwardly antagonistic stark/clegane roadtrip
“No, you’re dead,” she threw back at him.
Why stick to the story if it only subtly expands on Sandor’s feelings towards Sansa? Pssht. Just make him call Arya a bitch and be done with it. I mean Sandor’s only a big scary sword-swinger…
I demand gifsets of every single scene, giving Sandor back all of the dialogue that makes him a complicated character.
Do you understand how him referring to her as “the little sister” might be something that reveals character?
Do you think that the “don’t you know you’re dead?” line isn’t a line that meshes beautifully with all of the following dialogue he has with Arya, starting off with a bang the themes of their relationship? Their relationship with each other and with death, with killing, and their struggle to stay alive?
