Trying to keep track of all the Cat and Ned stuff is next to impossible since there are like a thousand possible compinations of their names - this is why ships have nicknames!

workswithwords asked: Cat/Ned, Cat's first week in the North is anything but pleasant, and all she wants to do is go home.


Winterfell is colder than she thought – her rooms are warm but the castle is cool despite the warmth of the walls, and outside, it is frigid and the snow falls and falls and falls. It is a lonelier, more silent place than she expected; but then, Brandon had never been quiet or cold and she had thought to have his laughter and light to illuminate the castle.

The corridors are long and winding, and she gets lost at least twice a day. She could ask her husband for his assistance, for a tour, but she has no desire to speak with him or even lay eyes upon him after the dishonor that he had foisted upon her – fathering a bastard she could forgive, but to bring him to Winterfell, to put him alongside her son is an insult she finds nearly impossible to bear.

She writes letter after letter to her father, to her uncle, to Edmure, all back in Riverrun – long missives of her unhappiness, of her loneliness, of her heartache. Letter after letter, they feed the little fire in her chambers and she watches them burn – the good, dutiful daughter, the patient, tolerant wife – and she wishes her misery could so easily be turned to ash.

Downton Abbey Series 5 Cast Interviews 

Who is the naughtiest on set? What’s the weirdest bit of fanmail the cast have every received? Did Hugh Bonneville really lock Allen Leech in a tower?

Oh my goodness. This is so full of goodness.

"Mrs Hughes is the only one in a corset any more, I’ll have you know," says actress Phyllis Logan, looking pained just at the thought of her restrictive costume.

"It’s hard to believe people did that every day. No wonder they were all getting attacks of the vapours every five minutes and fainting right, left and centre."

"But it’s almost worth doing it for the relief you get at the end of 12 hours when you can actually take it off and go ‘phew. ‘"

As she slept amidst the rolling grasslands, Catelyn dreamt that Bran was whole again, that Arya and Sansa held hands, that Rickon was still a babe at her breast. Robb, crownless, played with a wooden sword, and when all were safe asleep, she found Ned in her bed, smiling.

Sweet it was, sweet and gone too soon. Dawn came cruel, a dagger of light. She woke aching and alone and weary; weary of riding, weary of hurting, weary of duty. I want to weep, she thought. I want to be comforted. I’m so tired of being strong. I want to be foolish and frightened for once. Just for a small while, that’s all … a day … an hour …
