Eddard Stark: “Look at me. You’re a Stark of Winterfell, you know our words.”
Arya Stark: “‘Winter is coming’.”
The Stark family have always been the heart and soul of Game of Thrones. Ever since the pilot episode where they were all together for the last time, it was evident that this family was something special. For seven seasons we’ve had to watch as they tried to avenge their family while getting closer and closer to reuniting. It was an often devastating journey as many were never able to find each other again, but as we’ve all been taught, “A lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.”
A fan-made video by Jah called “House Stark | The Pack” survives was uploaded to YouTube and it’s a beautiful tribute to Westeros’ best family. It takes you through the journies that Jon, Sansa, Arya, Robb, Rickon, Bran, Ned and Catelyn have all gone through on the show while beautifully connecting them through the many lessons that Ned taught them.
While it’s hard to watch some of your favorite Starks meet their unfortunate fate, you can’t help but remember that their deaths only allowed for the remaining Starks to grow and become stronger characters. Now, a Stark must always remain in Winterfell and with Jon finally on his way back we may be getting that reunion we’ve all been craving since Season 1.
Here’s a quick refresh on the status of the Starks to jog your memory before you watch the video. All images were created by Tumblr user TurtleDuckie.
Enjoy the video below! I’m not crying…you’re crying.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
