Bit of running round in circles. Slight increase in activity and hopefully creativity. Dilemma about bringing beer to meetings with friends. It calms my social anxiety but makes me feel despised. I know they love me and they are worried for me. I don’t know what else they could do for me even if they read these words in an obscure Germanic dialect which however helps me think straighter. I think…
No but the Blackfish excusing himself to go behind a tree and take the world’s luckiest piss is still the best moment of the show!Red Wedding

Houses of Westeros - House Mormont
40. Because Maege gives Robb the title of King of Winter.

36. Because when Maege decides her daughters will be Mormonts, her daughters will be fucking Mormonts.

You know, the funny thing is that when I originally started posting about Robb’s will, that’s what I assumed. I’m not sure where I got that idea… fanfic? other people’s meta? But then I reread the pre-RW chapters more carefully and I realized that was wrong. Here, let me quote for you:
"I want two ships to double the chances of my message reaching Howland Reed. Lady Maege shall go on one, Galbart on the second.” He turned to the two he’d named. “You’ll carry letters for those lords of mine who remain in the north, but all the commands within will be false, in case you have the misfortune to be taken."
Note this message was not his will, but a command to Howland Reed to help guide Robb’s army through the Neck. Note also the letters Maege and Galbart are carrying are not Robb’s will either, but rather false marching orders.
He picked up a sheet of parchment. “One more matter. Lord Balon has left chaos in his wake, we hope. I would not do the same. Yet I have no son as yet, my brothers Bran and Rickon are dead, and my sister is wed to a Lannister. I’ve thought long and hard about who might follow me. I command you now as my true and loyal lords to fix your seals to this document as witnesses to my decision.”
This document is never mentioned again — literally nothing is ever said of it in any chapter in any book after this one. (And I can’t find mention of it in any “So Spake Martin” either.) But from the text, it was not given to Maege Mormont and Galbart Glover on their trip to Greywater Watch. Robb may still have had the parchment with him when he was killed… in which case either the Freys have it, or it was buried/burned/left to rot on his body. (I don’t recall if it’s ever said what they did with Robb’s body after they desecrated it.)
But the fate of the parchment is not really as relevant as it’s cracked up to be. The important thing is the lords who witnessed what Robb wrote in the document, and they were:
- Edmure Tully (alive, captive at Casterly Rock)
- Jason Mallister (alive, captive of the Freys within his own castle at Seaguard)
- Greatjon Umber (alive, captive at the Twins)
- Galbart Glover (alive, free, probably somewhere in the Neck)
- Maege Mormont (alive, free, also probably somewhere in the Neck)
- Catelyn Stark (technically alive, but probably in no condition to talk about the legitimization, which she opposed anyway)
So whether or not Robb’s will still exists as a document, there are still people who know who Robb had chosen as his heir. However, we need to keep this in mind:
And Robb is dead. Therefore even if the document he had his lords seal legitimized Jon and made him his heir… it would be a post-mortem command, by someone who, whether or not his kingship was truly legitimate, definitely stopped being a king the moment he died. Is that still legally valid? Many might argue otherwise. And if they’re presented with a living and entirely legitimate heir to Winterfell in the form of Rickon, say, then the argument would most likely indeed be moot.
House Mormont of Bear Island is an old, proud, and honorable house, sworn to House Stark of Winterfell. Their seat is at Bear Island, located in the Bay of Ice far to the north-west of Winterfell. Their sigil is a a black bear over a green wood and their words are “Here We Stand”.
House Mormont is one of the few houses to have an ancestral weapon of Valyrian steel: a bastard sword called Longclaw. However, due to Bear Island’s lack of valuable resources, the Mormonts are a rather poor house. Their hall is made of huge logs, surrounded by an earthen palisade. On the gate is a carving of a woman in a bearskin with a child in one arm suckling at her breast and a battleaxe in the other. Like the other women of Bear Island, the women of House Mormont learn how to defend themselves from ironmen and wildlings.
When Eddard Stark called his banners to fight in Robert’s Rebellion, Lord Jeor Mormont led the Bear Island men to war. Abdicating his lordship in the next few years to join the Night’s Watch, Jeor was succeeded by his son Jorah, who earned fame in the Greyjoy Rebellion and subsequent Tourney at Lannisport. Jorah, however, was driven from the North by Lord Stark after selling poachers to a Tyroshi slaver in order to pay for the tastes of his wife. Jorah fled to the Free Cities and was succeeded by his aunt, Jeor’s sister Maege Mormont. Jeor meanwhile became Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
House Mormont at the End of the Third Century:
Alfryd (200-259) wed Enora of House Liddle (215-268)
Jeor (230-299) wed Bethany of House Flint of Flint’s Finger (236-255) by him bore Jorah (255- )
Jorah wed Friya of House Glover (256-280), wed Lynesse of House Hightower (270- ), annulled on his exile
Maege (247-299) wed Wynton of House Marsh (253-89)
by him bore Dacey (272-299), Lyra (278- ), Jorelle (285- ), Lyanna (290- ) and Alysane (274- ), who bore by a bear Jeyne (291- ) and Eddard (298- )
So I decided to try making a proper drawing based on the sketch I made at like 3AM last night while listening to ASoS. I know it’s not very good, but I am actually pretty happy with it! I know that two months ago I wouldn’t have been able of doing anything like this, and any progress, however small, makes me happy :)
I like to imagine Dacey decided to wear her fanciest warrior outfit to the wedding!
I also like to imagine that she escaped somehow and wasn’t really killed and now she’s off having adventures somewhere nice *sobs*
#kira tries to draw#why do I always get so attached to very minor characters#I have been drawing chainmail for two hours#and I couldn’t decide on the shoes so I just drew some awful boots omg
43. Because Dacey had fought alongside Robb in all of his battles, and he had won every one.
