Happy Monday Novas! Since I was unable to watch Game of Thrones last week, I thought I would do a post listing the 4 reasons that I loveeee House Stark! I know, I know, what you’re thinking but like it’s House Flipping Stark! They may be boring to some, but to me they are the best House in Game of Thrones! If you haven’t watched GOT you might want to stop rading as there may be spoilers below! **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!**
Wolves: The sigil for the house is the Dire Wolf which is a gigantic wolf. Dire wolves are beautiful and dangerous. Sansa and Arya said a great reference at the end of season 7. ” Father said that even if the leader dies, the pack will survive.” or something like that. The leader Ned died, but the pack (well most of them) still live on.
Yes, the Starks will fight, yes they each have a different opinion on what needs to be done but as Sansa, Arya and Bran proved, no one, not even Littlefinger can tear them apart. They will in the end come together as a pack and destroy their enemies.
Fight: If you notice, all of the Starks are excellent fighters! Jon of course is a master swordsman and as dog fodder Ramsey described him “Probably the best fighter anyone has ever seen.” Arya is skilled in fighting, she took on Brienne in season 7 and has been carving up targets left and right (How many people are left on her list anyway?). Ned was an extroadinary swordsman as Jaime Lannister learned. Jaime’s own men thought he was in danger to lose the fight and drove a spear into Ned’s leg.
Skills: Each member of the Stark family has an impressive skill that other houses just do not possess. Arya is an assassin and very skilled with weapons, Sansa has the diplomatic skills of a Lannister (which can be a double edge sword), Jon has the leadership skills and tenacity of the best warrior around, Rob had the same leadership qualities and then there is Bran, the 3 eyed raven. Need I say more?
Honor: You cannot mention House Stark without mention their Honor! Many get mad at the Starks for not bending the rules and doing whatever they can to win, but I admire them for sticking to their morals. It is entirely easy to break the rules to get what you want. When you stand for something and stick to it no matter what, you should be commended. The Starks do not follow the crowd, their honorable and noble. Yes, it may get them into crazy situations but that’s the price or being honorable. Everyone in the 7 Kingdoms know that a Stark’s word will not be broked and can be trusted. It’s why they are so likeable by the other houses.
Those are my top reasons for loving House Stark! Which House is your favorite in Game of Thrones and why? Let’s talk GOT!
