    As has often been discussed in the Pawn to Player: Rethinking Sansa threads, the cloak is highly significant as a symbol of protection and comfort in Sansa Stark’s arc. In particular: the white Kingsguard cloak belonging to…

    Love in the realm of gray by Irulana


    Sansa fans will be familiar with the Hades and Persephone myth through her time with Littlefinger and his offer of the pomegranate—its hallmark symbolical fruit—when she is at the Fingers. However, in our choice of this myth for the Legendaries project, we have focused on the love story between the gods Hades and Persephone told in the early sources, something which goes against the posterior widespread notion that she was unhappy with her husband, and therefore appropriate for a Sansa and Sandor portrayal. The god of the Underworld loved his wife dearly, building for her a manse and planting an orchard for her there, so she’d have a strip of the above world to live in during the months she was with him, from where the famous pomegranates came.

    And though the archaic rites of the spring festivals put emphasis on the joyful reunion of mother and daughter, there were also some less known texts in which it’s described how light and laughter and happiness came back to Hades with Persephone’s return, which is nicely conveyed by these lines from Jo Walton’s poem “Hades and Persephone”:

    I see you, and you see me, and we smile,
    And your smile says you are as pleased as me
    With everything and nothing still to say.
    All that we’ve saved and thought through all this time
    Boils down to affirmation now as we
    Stand here enlightened in my realm of grey.

    This is very much a poem about the happiness of reunion, which we are looking forward to with Sandor and Sansa after their long separation.

    He saw Sansa crying herself to sleep at night, and he saw Arya watching in silence and holding her secrets hard in her heart. There were shadows all around them. One shadow was as dark as ash, with the terrible face of a hound. ~Bran, aGoT~

    Elder Brother: “The man you hunt is dead.”
    Brienne: “So it’s true, then. Sandor Clegane is dead.”
    Elder Brother: “He is at rest.”

    Elder Brother: “All in all, I was a sad man. Whenever I was not fighting, I was drunk. My life was writ in red, in blood and wine.”
    Brienne: “When did that change?”
    Elder Brother: “When I died in the Battle of the Trident.”

    ~The Hound is dead, but Sandor Clegane is still alive, living on the Quiet Isle as a Novice Gravedigger.~  (My Edit)

    My interpretation of this scene. It is obvious that both of them are very confused. I will not get into more details as I already did in my previous posts.
