Like A Thief
IN The Night

Anna; XVIII, ENFP

"And we swagger because we do not know how to part with our rage, which we cherish and press cutting close, but we learn to swagger — or rather, we’re swaggered, briefly, while the wind blows and things burn and our hands are full — because we know it darkly all the same."

Arianne  Martell;

The heiress of Sunspear & future ruling Princess of Dorne.

"Fiery peppers and strange spices heat the blood . And the Dornish sun was hotter than the pale, wan sun of Norvos, glaring down from a blue sky day after day. The air was sharp with the smell of lemons and blood oranges.

In the first week after his coronation, he finds that the most annoying aspect of being King is the way she smirks at him and says Your Grace at the end of every sentence, even where it hardly makes sense. He doesn’t remember calling her m’lady half as often back then, but he supposes it’s a better punishment than being kicked in the shins by his Queen.
