A start? Gods forbid. I would it were a finish. Tywin Lannister is dead. So are Robert Baratheon, Amory Lorch, and now Gregor Clegane, all those who had a hand in murdering Elia and her children. Even Joffrey, who was not yet born when Elia died. I saw the boy perish with mine own eyes, clawing at his throat as he tried to draw a breath. Who else is there to kill? Do Myrcella and Tommen need to die so the shades of Rhaenys and Aegon can be at rest? Where does it end? Oberyn wanted vengeance for Elia. Now the three of you want vengeance for him. I have four daughters, I remind you. Your sisters. My Elia is fourteen, almost a woman. Obella is twelve, on the brink of maidenhood. They worship you, as Dorea and Loreza worship them. If you should die, must El and Obella seek vengeance for you, then Dorea and Loree for them? Is that how it goes, round and round forever? I ask again, where does it end? I saw your father die. Here is his killer. Can I take a skull to bed with me, to give me comfort in the night? Will it make me laugh, write me songs, care for me when I am old and sick?

Ondine was a water nymph. She was very beautiful and, like all nymphs, immortal. However, should she fall in love with a mortal man and bear his child, she would lose her immortality, with no chance of getting it back. Ondine eventually fell in love with a handsome knight, and they got married. When they exchange vows, the knight swore to forever love and be faithful to her. A year after their marriage, Ondine gave birth to his child, and from that moment on, she begins to age. As Ondine’s physical attractiveness diminishes, the knight loses interest in his wife. One afternoon, Ondine was walking near the stables when she heard the familiar snoring of her husband. When she enters the stable, she sees him lying in the arms of another woman. Ondine pointed her finger at him, which he felt as if kicked, waking him up with surprise. Ondine cursed him, stating, “You swore faithfulness to me with every waking breath, and I accepted your oath. So be it. As long as you are awake, you shall have your breath, but should you ever fall asleep, then that breath will be taken from you and not given back, such as what was taken from me.”

Lady Kenna, what about you? Poor thing, lost her home in one of those horrid plague fires. That’s no fun, is it?
Not really, no.
