A Price of Honor by nejna A Price of Honor by nejna
The white tears and the red ones ran together until her face was torn and tattered, the face that Ned had loved. Catelyn Stark raised her hands and watched the blood run down her long fingers, over her wrists, beneath the sleeves of her gown. Slow red worms crawled along her arms and under her clothes. It tickles. That made her laugh until she screamed.

George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire

EDITED 30.04.2007
Finally I've corrected all of the mistakes my watchers noticed on the first version, or at least that's what I hope for...

Details of it can be seen here

It was done with reference help of stock photos taken from:
Bolton (man in the pink) :iconcobweb-stock: [link]
Frey (man reaching for Catelyn) :iconjademacalla: [link]

OFMS *_* već duže vrijeme (nekoliko godina lol) se divim ovoj slici...i tek sad skužim da si iz Hrvatske :D
Ne znam da li sam ikada komentirao na sliku, preko starog profila (ne sječam se)...ali pregenijalna slika. Svaki put se vratim i opet me iznova pogodi...kao da opet čitam/pratim sve iznova....:'(

Je to se i meni dogadja, prvi put kad sam procitala poglavlje morala sam ga ponovno procitati jer sam mislila da sam nesto krivo tijekom citanja shvatila, nije bilo nikakve sanse da Martin ubije i Robba i Catelyn...

Ja se točno sječam kako sam buljio u knjigu pola sata, ne vjerujući što sam upravo pročitao. Imao sam noćne more od ovog poglavlja....nijedna druga knjiga nije toliko doprijela do mene. :(

Tako si neverovatno realno prikazala Kejtlinin bol i patnju, prosto nemam komentara...da li je dovoljno reći da sam se opet rasplakala kad sam videla ovu sliku? SVAKA ČAST!

This is great! The only time I ever had to stop reading a book so I could gather my thoughts and pull myself together! Catelyn's posture and expression are spot on and just as I imagined. Well done!

100% agreed. I had to stop reading and pull my selftogether because it was overwhelming...amazing work, you can feel Cat's grief!
I would've gone mad with her, for the love of the seven Gods...may the Others take the Freys. And Bolton.

This is beautiful, but devastating. Seeing Robb's lifeless body and Cat's anguish is heartbreaking. I also like how Bolton's identity remains a bit ambiguous.

This scene in the books was just devastating, the loss of Robb surprised me a great deal but I suppose that was the point.

None the less it simply adds to the quality of the series, albeit morbidly.

I've yet to begin reading A Feast for Crows but if that old bastard Walder Frey doesn't die soon I might go mad.

Really emotional piece you have done here, especially with Frey reaching towards Catelyn. Although I have only started reading the books myself for the first time, I knew something like this was bound to happen, now I'm not looking forward to reading that part. Really well done

Poor, poor Robb. I mean, really, I don't care about Catelyn (I know, she's been through some bad stuff, but I still don't like her), but why kill Robb? GRRM killed Robb, he sent Tyrion somewhere over the Narrow sea, he threw Jon to the wolves (a.k.a Stannis and Melissandra), if he didn't do such terrible things to all characters, I would think he holds a personal grudge towards my favourites.

I'm worried he won't have any characters left by the end of next book. Dragon is supposed to have three heads, but Martin will soon have only three people alive. (Still hope Dolorous Edd will be one of them).

Yes it could be with the way he's killing characters.
Oh dear Edd he really is something special.
