I WILL TALK TO YOU A THING.
My favorite thing about Sansa/Sandor is how it actually makes Sansa the most powerful knight in Westeros. SO CHECK THIS OUT:
Sansa defeats the Hound. She destroys him. The most feared warrior in Westeros, she reduces to a sniveling drunken mess sobbing on the side of a river, and she does it with nothing but kindness, intelligence, and grace. It’s the ultimate display of her power. The ultimate display of everything that makes Sansa, Sansa. She destroys the Hound, who is established in the first book as the ultimate warrior, and through that destruction, through that defeat Sandor can finally come to life.
The ship for me isn’t about Sansa being saved, it’s about Sansa being the knight that saves Sandor. She defeats the monster inside him, and allows him to be the man he always was afraid to fully accept. She saves him. She’s his knight in shining armor. And I love that so much.

↳ F → feminism & representation
"I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place, and crash through the glass ceiling. And a lot of them did that believing that they had to trade on their femininity and that they had to be a man and tap into whatever they believed was a masculine trait to hang in the boys’ room, to get the "keys to the kingdom" as it were. And what’s beautiful about Jessica Pearson is that she is the next level to that when, really, feminism is about being all that you are and not having to trade one thing for another on your way up, or apologize." - Gina Torres (about her character Jessica Pearson, on Suits)
