they mentioned balon greyjoy i thought this day would never come
Somewhere, on Pyke, Balon Greyjoy lifts his head to the sky, rain pouring down, as he recognises that someone, somewhere, has acknowledged his rebellious claim
HE PROBABLY SENT STANNIS A GIFT BASKET FOR EVEN BOTHERING TO CURSE A GREYJOY.
one of my favorite things about asha greyjoy is that despite the fact that she operates in a masculine world, wears masculine clothing, and conducts herself in a greyjoy-centric masculine manner (taking what’s hers, paying the iron price) she never gives up the trappings of femininity?
because no one is more aware of their own femininity as asha is. she knows what a disadvantage it could be, and she never pretends she’s anything other than exactly what she is: a woman occupying a traditional man’s role.
think about the way she codes her weaponry: her axe is her lord husband, and her dirk her suckling babe. she takes what are supposed to be feminine shackles (the husband to rule her and the babe to keep her at home) and makes them into tools by which she cuts men in half.
she’s sharp and she’s witty and she cuts with words as well as weapons because every moment of her life is a battle, and any opportunity she has to get the upper hand, she takes. and yet never for a second does she forget that she’s a woman. how can she, when it’s all anyone reminds her of?
i find it incredibly interesting when placed in a dynamic with brienne (who’s stuck halfway between a knight and a damsel, ser my lady as pod calls her, who gives up being feminine in order to pick up a sword and be masculine, and thus is incredibly uncomfortable around other women) and cersei (who wishes with all her might to be a man, to be jaime, specifically, but if she’s going to be a woman she’s going to be the best at being a woman, wear the finest clothes, be the prettiest, use her cunt to control the men around her, and as such hates other women for being lesser than her). asha dresses like a man, but is incredibly womanly, and she’s comfortable around other women because she’s comfortable with herself.
I don’t want to have a dozen sons, i want to have adventures.
Asha Greyjoy: The Kraken’s Daughter
“I don’t want to have a dozen sons,” she had told him, appalled. “I want to have adventures.”
under the waves and the earth of an age
lie a thousand old northerners’ graves

I am still the kraken’s daughter.
we are ironborn.
