An old man sat down beside her. “Well, aren’t you a pretty little peach?” His breath smelled near as foul as the dead man in the cages, and his little pig eyes were crawling up and down her. “Does my sweet peach have a name?”
For half a heartbeat she forgot who she was supposed to be. She wasn’t any peach, but she couldn’t be Arya Stark either, not here with some smelly drunk she did not know. “I’m…”
“She’s my sister.” Gendry put a heavy hand on old man’s shoulder, and squeezed. “Leave her be.”
The man turned, spoiling for a quarrel, but when he saw Gendry’s size he thought better of it. “Your sister, is she? What kind of brother are you? I’d never bring no sister of mine to the Peach, that I wouldn’t.” He got up from the bench and moved off muttering, in search of a new friend.
“Why did you say that?” Arya hopped to her feet. “You’re not my brother.”
“That’s right,” he said angrily. “I’m too bloody low born to be kin to m’lady high.”
Arya was taken aback by the fury in his voice. “That’s not the way I meant it.”
“Yes it is.” He sat down on a bench, cradling a cup of wine between his hands. “Go away. I want to drink this wine in peace. Then maybe I’ll go find that black haired girl and ring her bell for her.”
“I said, go away. My’lady.”
Arya whirled and left him there. A stupid bullheaded bastard boy, that’s all he is. He could ring all the bells he wanted, it was nothing to her.

Seriously, how is Tumblr going to survive this November? We’ve got Thor 2 AND Catching Fire AND the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary AND Sherlock Series 3.
….you forgot and the Hobbit
DON’T FORGET SEASON 9 OF SUPERNATURAL WE’RE FUCKED
Also the Ender’s Game movie. But I suppose that is the least of these things to most people.
People don’t seem to understand that Matt Smith is an actor, and therefor, does more than just Doctor Who.
Friend: “Why did he shave his head?”
Me: “For a movie.”
Friend: “Is it a Doctor Who movie?”
Me: *blank expression”
You can walk to school by yourself, her mother had said, but only if Simon goes with you. He thought of her hand in his when they crossed the street, and his own sense of the awesome task that he had undertaken: the responsibility for her safety.
