When Robert lifted Mace Tyrell’s ill-managed siege of Storm’s End to return to his ancestral home, he realized the dream of all the Storm Lords before him—to rule the Seven Kingdoms. Then Robert died, and his brother Stannis killed their other brother, the noble king Renly, with black magic. Now the Stormlands again live up to their name. With so many Houses burned on the Blackwater, and others currying favor with the Lannisters to sieze the survivors’ lands. Renly could’ve saved us. If only I could’ve saved him. But I will teach Stannis a lesson he should’ve learned growing up in the Stormlands. As lightning gives way to thunder, so too must murder lead to vengeance.Histories and Lore of Westeros: The Stormlands

Baratheon Meme: Memories (2/4) ~ Renly as child"Even as a boy, Renly had loved bright colors and rich fabrics, and he had loved his games as well. “Look at me!” he would shout as he ran laughing through the halls of Storm’s End. “Look at me, I’m a dragon,” or “Look at me, I’m a wizard,” or “Look at me, look at me, I’m the rain god.”
The bold little boy with wild black hair and laughing eyes was a man grown now, one-and-twenty, and still he played his games. Look at me, I’m a king, Cressen thought sadly. Oh, Renly, Renly, dear sweet child, do you know what you are doing? And would you care if you did?” — ACOK
