↳ Robert Baratheon - Serve the boar at my funeral feast; apple in its mouth, skin seared crisp. Eat the bastard. Don’t care if you choke on him. Promise me, Ned. Killed by a big; ought to laugh but it hurts too much.

Thank you for saying yes.
I only asked you because I need you.
You’re a loyal friend. You hear me?

Yet Robert was Ned’s king now, and not just a friend, so he said only, “Your Grace. Winterfell is yours.” By then the others were dismounting as well, and grooms were coming forward for their mounts. Robert’s queen, Cersei Lannister, entered on foot with her younger children. The wheelhouse in which they had ridden, a huge double-decked carriage of oiled oak and gilded metal pulled by forty heavy draft horses, was too wide to pass through the castle gate. Ned knelt in the snow to kiss the queen’s ring, while Robert embraced Catelyn like a long-lost sister. Then the children had been brought forward, introduced, and approved of by both sides. No sooner had those formalities of greeting been completed than the king had said to his host, “Take me down to your crypt, Eddard. I would pay my respects.”
Robert was the true steel. Stannis is pure iron, black and hard and strong, yes, but brittle, the way iron gets. He’ll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he’s copper, bright and shiny, pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day.
