Girls of Westeros - Arianne

I wanted to make a series titled "Strong Girls of westeros" but then when I was making the list of the characters I realized that there really are no "weak" women in Asoiaf serie. They are all, every single one amazingly strong in so many different ways. Which is amazing in a world where well written female characters are so rare. So it became just "Girls of westeros". 'Cause it was redundant.

Arianne doesn't get enough love in my opinion.

Remember: NO character bashing or GTFO.
And I still draw the characters the way I imagined them to be when I read the books. Keep that in mind.

I´m not sure, was she the woman who married Robb Stark secretly? (Sometimes I forget the names, sorry..) I loved what she told about her past, it was sad but it made her stronger, I think..<3 At first I honestly thought you drew Pocahontas because she looked like her..;) Long dark hair, dark skin and very pretty! :heart:

uhm, no, you have yet to meet in the show. Remember when Tyrion said he would send Myrcella to Dorne? Arianne's the heir to the House Martell, the one that rules Dorne. Dorne is a very hot place in the south and has a desert and people dress in silk and everything has very much an arab feeling.
(AHAH yes! you're right she does look like Pocahontas!)

Robb's wife is... well.... changed. A LOT. In the books she was called "Jeyne Westerling" and she was the daughter of a family sworn to the Lannister (not a foreigner) and they met after a battle when Robb was full of grief because he heard about the death (fake) of Bran and Rickon and they had sex and the morning after Robb was so "OMG I'm such an awful person I dishonored you, now I will marry you". It was some adolescent fling, not the story of true passionate love they created for the show.... I guess they tried to make Robb's error less big and try to make him more sympathetic creating a true love story. I don't think they needed to. He's 15, he's bound to want to have sex with girls without thinking about the consequences!!

oh, really? Sorry, then I really had no idea who that girl was. XD But I guess she will appear in the next season? Then I look forward to see her there. :)

Oh god, really?! Okay, that´s a completely different story! I really thought they loved each other and wanted to marry because of the war and because they can´t be sure if they´re going to survive it.
Well, when Robb is so young in the books, it´s not really surprising that he does stupid thing sometimes. (And he is really fighting in a war even when he´s only 15? God..) Kind of sweet that he still cares about the honor of that girl even though he is already nearly married with another girl.
Thanks for explaining, I had no idea! :heart:

Actually I don't know if she'll appear in the next season... there are SO MANY characters and SO MANY plots that she could be pushed into season 4.

Yes, I LOVE the fact that he's 15, and he tries SO MUCH and he's actually pretty good but still relies on Catelyn a lot (they kinda severed this part in the show. Such a shame.) and in the end he does the political mistake you expect from a guy that age. Oh stupid stupid Robb. <3 You're so much of your father's son!
By the way, even if there's no undying love between him and Jeyne and he married her for honor, they seems pretty attached and have a lot of nice time together.
you should read the books by the way, you'd like them.

Yeah, you´re probably right about that.. A friend of mine is reading the books right now and she also told me that there´re so many wonderful characters! :heart:

That really sounds interesting (and so different from the show), thanks for explaining! :) I´m sure I´m going to read the books, too! :heart:
