He meets her gaze for the shortest moment before turning to look out over the woods, gesturing at it with a gloved hand. “Is this why you brought me here? To talk about memories?”
“No. I wanted to talk about marriage.”
When Sansa suggests it's time for her and Jon to marry, she means they should make marriage alliances with the other Northern houses. Jon, though, assumes she means they should marry each other.
A post s7 story where Jon and Sansa struggle to navigate their new political landscape while suppressing their feelings for one another, Arya does everything in her power to protect her pack, and Bran and Sam try to figure out how to kill the Night King.

“Sometimes in the castle, you can still hear her singing—songs of love, but only the ones that end happily.” Jon's children tell the tale of the Lady of Winterfell. Originally posted on Tumblr as part of the Game of Ships challenge.

“I’m trying to protect you,” Jon grunts, tearing himself away from the window.
But Sansa is there. Sansa is there, against his arm, turning him around. “From what?”
He’s breathing so fast he nearly can’t stop is body from humming, vibrating, he can’t keep his hands still or his eyes at any one place and it’s like it’s under his skin but Sansa just waits, waits, still like stone and the Lady of Winterfell and he isn’t the King-in-the-North-no-longer.
And after a year, a decade, a lifetime, Jon says, brokenly, “From me.”
Sansa does not move. Jon’s beginning to think that the gods could rip apart the ground beneath their feet and separate Westeros into two, east and west, and still Sansa would not move. She looks at him like she can see through him, through the parts he needs to keep from her. “There was once a time when I knew that the last person in Westeros, and Essos, and all the unknown and the dead lands— the last person I needed to be protected from was you.”

The most terrible thing you can do to a writer, Bilbo is sure, is answer words with silence.
Sweet-bittersweet, comedy-angst, movie/book fusion. Set in a reclaimed Erebor full of dwarrowdames, political strife, tree plagues, and new Durins -- all brought to you via a completely neutral and factual firsthand account utterly expurgated of bias. Also expurgated of questionable narratorial rambling, curiously tender descriptions, marginalia complaints, annoying sayings, and irrelevant hobbitish asides. Candidly, Master Baggins is just trying to finish this book and go home.
(In Proper Summary: The one where the dwarves have a matriarchal constitutional monarchy, Thorin has a daughter named Bélah, and Bilbo says he will write tomorrow but doesn't.)
