melisandre week → day 2: favourite scene
"I can show you." Melisandre draped one slender arm over Ghost, and the direwolf licked her face. "The Lord of Light in his wisdom made us male and female, two parts of a greater whole. In our joining there is power. Power to make life. Power to make light. Power to cast shadows."
"Shadows." The world seemed darker when he said it. "Every man who walks the earth casts a shadow on the world. Some are thin and weak, others long and dark. You should look behind you, Lord Snow. The moon has kissed you and etched your shadow upon the ice twenty feet tall." (Jon VI, ADWD)
The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
Jon - A Clash of Kings
In which Jon Snow takes an enemy captive, and immediately proceeds to listen to one of her folk tales and see things from her perspective
"You know nothing, Jon Snow" isn’t just a funny meme about Jon being stupid. It’s Ygritte telling him he doesn’t know things, and Jon caring enough to learn, and to incorporate what he learns into his worldview. Jon’s one of the few men in Westeros to consider what a woman would think/do before he makes decisions. This happens all throughout his chapters in ADWD, where he talks to her in his head. "They know nothing, Ygritte. And worse, they will not learn."
Mance Rayder, King-Beyond-the-Wall, stood unflinching under Stannis Baratheon’s heavy gaze. The courtyard was quiet. Jon Snow saw his brothers standing alongside Stannis’ knights, King’s Men and Queen’s Men alike. Gods be good, Jon despaired, the Wall is not big enough for this much old men yaoi.
