Game of Thrones house posters - House Martell & House Stark
The Great Houses of Westeros ruling the Stormlands, the Reach, the Westerlands, and the Iron Islands.
They never recover her father’s body.
The rightful king of Westeros, frozen to death in some northern wild, and she only a girl but now named as queen. His men obey him even in death. It’s her name they cry, her banners they raise, and by then she is no longer a girl at all but grown, because in such a war what else could she be? It’s her they seat upon the Iron Throne in the sight of gods and men. Queen Shireen Baratheon, first of her name…
(There is only one god. She has not forgotten, though the red priestess was lost, too.)
(She has not forgotten fury, either.)
Her Hand is a shadow of a man, kept living only by the loyalty that beats relentlessly in his chest. The people do not love her, no more than they loved her father. Some pity her, others view her with disgust. Her disfigurement is the source of much jesting, but that no longer hurts her. She’d grown used to it, long ago.
She is a brittle shell around an iron heart, a hint of a gentle smile that is only the cloak concealing an unbending will.
(A doe is as mighty as a stag, she tells herself.)
(Those who oppose her soon learn the truth of it.)
Game of Thrones House Banners by Oliver Ibáñez
You can’t choose the House you’re born into in life but whether it be a blessing or a curse is the choice that’s all yours. Unfortunately there are no House Brooks banners (“When You Stare Into The Abyss of the Internet, It Also Stares Back At You”), but Oliver has created these ornate designs for all the major Houses in Westoros, available for purchase at Redbubble so you and your Bannermen can proudly match before their chosen King (or Khaleesi).
And DONE! In all its mighty power puff font glory. Did lots of experimenting tonight. :I
The Tullys drew their strength from the river, and it was to the river they returned when their lives had run their course.
