irresistible-revolution:


Just contrast Sansa and Arya. Sansa represents a very traditional feminine role, and through the course of the books we see how she increasingly inhabits it and gains power through it. Arya occupies the opposite end of the feminine spectrum, channeling a Kali-esque righteous and violent vengeance, along with corresponding influence on the game. Martin’s narrative makes no value judgments in the book about which sister is good or evil, and both are equally fascinating. He just offers them up, alive and kicking; to the reader in true postmodern fashion. (via)

YES!
