Witches and wizards often reveal themselves to each other in public by wearing purple or green, often in combination. In Britain (and much of Europe) purple has an association with both royalty and religion. Purple dyes, being costly, were once worn only by those who could afford them; bishops’ rings are traditionally set with amethysts. Green has long had a supernatural connection in the UK. Superstition says that it ought to be worn with care; the fairies are supposedly possessive of it, as it is their proper colour. It ought never to be worn at weddings, due to a further association with misfortune and death. Green is the colour of much ‘Dark’ magic; of the ‘Dark Mark’, of the luminescent potion in which Voldemort conceals one of his Horcruxes, of many ‘Dark’ spells and curses, and of Slytherin house. The combination of purple and green, therefore, is suggestive of both sides of magic: the noble and the ignoble, the helpful and the destructive.

↳ Elia Martell & Rhaegar Targaryen
Oberyn: “The last time I was in the capital was many years ago. Another wedding. My sister Elia and Rhaegar Targaryen, the Last Dragon. My sister loved him. She bore his children. Swaddled them, rocked them, fed them at her own breast. Elia wouldn’t let the wet nurse touch them. And beautiful, noble Rhaegar Targaryen left her for another woman. That started a war and the war ended right here when your father’s army took the city”.
Elia Martell was the fourth child and first daughter of the ruling Princess of Dorne. During her youth she was very close to her younger brother, Oberyn Martell.
When Elia became old enough to marry, her mother arranged a number of suitors to come to Dorne.
Elia’s mother was able to arrange her marriage to the crown prince, Rhaegar Targaryen. Rhaegar and Elia had two children, Rhaenys and Aegon. Their marriage — though not romantic —seemed happy, although Elia’s health, which had always been problematic, remained fragile.
At the Tourney at Harrenhal Elia’s husband, Rhaegar, met Lyanna Stark and apparently became infatuated with her. He won the tournament and crowned her Queen of Love and Beauty, passing over his wife.
A year later Rhaegar either abducted or ran off with Lyanna, and this event sparked Robert’s Rebellion.
Fun facts everyone should know about Stannis: When Stannis was younger he once rescued and nursed an injured hawk back to health that he named Proudwing. He wanted to keep her even though she wasn’t ever going to be a really great hunter and despite the fact that his brothers where complete assholes about it and picked on him for it. He only abandoned her when his uncle counseled him to.
If you don’t think this is some of the cutest shit ever then you can get out of my face because I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life.
Stannis is the true King!
