Arya Stark Quotes (38 quotes)
Two quotes showing Jon and Arya mirroring each other's feelings. in regards to analysing the hints for a potential Jon / Arya relationship. On one hand you can kind of see the romance/crush aspect and because of * Note: Many more quotes where Arya & Jon think of one another. are just a few fan favorites, and they're all great quotes — however, as a fan of where Martin highlights the closeness between Jon and Arya.
Jon gives Arya Needle, and Arya tells him that she wishes he would go with them. She may be the only person to do so. I believe that two important phrases are used here 'stick them with the pointy end' and 'Don't tell Sansa'. The first one already reappeared in the books see a comment bellow and I think that the second will play its role too. Interesting is also their short exchange about women shaving. Aside that it shows how open are Jon and Arya with each other including bad jokes and deeply personal and awkward topics, I believe it have other layers to it.
Shaving aside of shaving head is connected to sexual maturity. Judging by Cersei's second ADwD chapter Westerosi women almost surely do not shave any part of their bodies but in RW in culture GRRM comes from most women do, so do Novrosi women and it would not surprise me if it was a case in Braavos especially among courtesans.
It is also interesting to compare this scene to Jaime giving Brienne the Oathkeeper. I did not find many similarities between the two aside of the motive of man bound by duty giving a woman the sword, but I think it would be worth the effort to compare how Arya thinks of Needle and Bienne of Oathkeeper. This is where King Robert killed him and won the crown. He had never paid much attention to the names the children had picked, but looking at her now, he knew that Sansa had chosen well. She was the smallest of the litter, the prettiest, the most gentle and trusting.
An description of Sansa's wolf. There were only two female direwolves in the litter. It is very close to certain that Nymeria was the more dominant female.

Lady was smaller than Nymeria which would rule her out almost surely. She would have to be very fierce and cunning to make up for the size, but both of those traits are also contradicted by the text.
She went back to the window, Needle in hand, and looked down into the courtyard below. If only she could climb like Bran, she thought; she would go out the window and down the tower, run away from this horrible place, away from Sansa and Septa Mordane and Prince Joffrey, from all of them. Steal some food from the kitchens, take Needle and her good boots and a warm cloak.
She found herself wishing that Jon was here with her now. The first time Arya mentions her wish to reach Jon, but not the last time. The Hand of the King is expected to rule the Seven Kingdoms, yet it seems I cannot even rule my own household. How is it that you come to own a sword, Arya? Where did you get this?

She would not betray Jon, not even to their father. There is absolutely no one in this world Arya is more loyal to than Jon, not even her own father whom she loves dearly. Which signals foreshadowing to me. Robert laughed so hard he like to burst.
Arya Stark Quotes
You stay away from that one, child. Arya catches and kisses a cat which is called the real king of the castle and black bastard. Jon is called black bastard too and in a way he is the real king of the castle. It caught her in the middle of the forehead with a wet squish and plopped down into her lap. Arya and Sansa having a queen talk. Could turn out being one of those ironies. Reading it now I was also reminded of the scene where Janos Slynt orders Jon to call him my lord or m'lord to be precise and Jon's answer is few times mocking too, especially: To lesser degree there is similar ongoing theme with Roose ordering Arya to call him 'my lord' her first answer is 'your lord' and Jon's nickname 'Lord Snow' as well as Arya's refusal to being addressed as 'my lady'.
The relationship between Jon Snow and Arya Stark. Whether they can be called siblings, allies, friends, soulmates, star-crossed lovers differs from person to person.
But no one can deny that their relationship is something unique. All of the siblings remember each other - but Jon and Arya remember each other the most.
Jon how Arya was the rebel, how she was the wild one. Is it possible that this foreshadowing, is the start of something strong - perhaps a forbidden relationship?
Let me point them out. The Evidences Throughout the books, there are countless quotes indicating relationship between Jon Snow and Arya Stark. Bastards get the swords but not the arms. I did not make the rules, little sister. He believes that one day Arya will 'give him the arms'. Jon grinned, reached over, and messed up her hair. They had always been close.
GRRM constantly emphasized how close they were, starting from the first. Let us note that, A Song of Ice and Fire hasn't been shy to incest. Starting from the ultimate twincest couple Jamie and Cersei Lannister, is has also been said quite few times that House Targaryen married brothers to sisters to keep the bloodlines pure. While it is shown to be hated and wrong, it certainly isn't shown as something as disgusting as most houses in the Seven Kingdom makes it out to be.
He and Arya doesn't share the same mother. Jon watched them leave, and Arya watched Jon. His face had grown as still as the pool at the heart of the godswood. In exception to the angry and impatient Arya Stark we deal with usually, here Arya is uncharacteristically silent. She's not watching the conflict below, neither is she watching anything outside.
She's watching Jon - and Jon only. Then again, from the books we find two mirroring quotes. And Arya…he missed her even more than Robb, skinny little thing that she was, all scraped knees and tangled hair and torn clothes, so fierce and willful. Arya never seemed to fit, no more than he had…yet she could always make Jon smile.
