House Martell + Ladies

ladyblackfish:

 According to the New Zealand Herald, we may just have our first bit of major casting news for the fifth season of  Game of Thrones. They report that 24-year-old “Whale Rider” star and Academy Award Nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes will play one of Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters, who are known as the Sand Snakes. The question is… Witch one ? 

 

I was the oldest,” the prince said, “and yet I am the last. After Mors and Olyvar died in their cradles, I gave up hope of brothers. I was nine when Elia came, a squire in service at Salt Shore. When the raven arrived with word that my mother had been brought to bed a month too soon, I was old enough to understand that meant the child would not live. Even when Lord Gargalen told me that I had a sister, I assured him that she must shortly die. Yet she lived, by the Mother’s mercy. And a year later Oberyn arrived, squalling and kicking. I was a man grown when they were playing in these pools. Yet here I sit, and they are gone.”

I am not blind, nor deaf. I know you all believe me weak, frightened, feeble.

"The Dornish leader forked a stallion black as sin with a mane and tail the color of fire. He sat his saddle as if he’d been born there, tall, slim, graceful."
