- there is literally only one house in the north that has ever practiced flaying
- the first king in the north made flaying illegal
- this law must have been created entirely for the boltons
- a thousand years later they’re still fucking flaying people
- conclusion: northern law enforcement is incredibly ineffective
The Starks intentionally kept the Boltons around as the 2nd most powerful house in the north, so that whenever the other northern lords considered rebelling, the Starks could point to the Silence of the Lambs House wearing their human skin cloaks next door and go “ok, but if you kick us out they’ll be taking over”.
this is 100% a possibility
Definitely an interesting and plausible theory.

So, this is what I did in my room earlier. Two and a half hours standing up on the bed all twisted, but the back ache is completely worth it. Quote by George R.R. Martin.
We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth.
