** The way it was set up makes it even better. When he realized the letter was about Bran, he thought that Bran had died and ran all the way to Jeor Mormont. When he learns the truth, he doesn't even care that Bran won't be able to walk again.
--> "He woke up," [Jon] said. "The gods gave him back." "Crippled," Mormont said. "I'm sorry, boy. Read the rest of the letter." He looked at the words, but they didn't matter. Nothing mattered. Bran was going to live... Jon ran down the stairs, a smile on his face and Robb's letter in his hands. "My brother is going to live," he told the guards. They exchanged a look. He ran back to the common hall, where he found Tyrion Lannister just finishing his meal. He grabbed the little man under the arms, hoisted him up in the air, and spun him around in a circle. ''"Bran is going to live!"'' he whooped.

* Sansa hearing that her brother Jon has been elected Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, and wistfully thinking how so sweet it would be to see him again. Prior to their family being separated, Sansa dreamt so much of being a princess betrothed to a prince at court and after all the hell she's been through since she's been separated from her family, it's both it's heartwarming and tearjerking whenever she fondly thinks of her siblings and of home.

* I think it counts as 'Heartwarming - for a Lannister' that Tyrion has clearly known about Cersei and Jaime's romantic relationship for quite some time, yet has never used the information against them. Contrast with the nanoseconds that it took both Lord Tywin and Cersei to use knowledge of Tyrion's personal life to try to manipulate ''him.''

* The one that stands out in my mind is [[EnsembleDarkhorse Robb Stark]] reminding [[MamaBear Catelyn]] [[MyBelovedSmother Stark]] in ''A Storm Of Swords'' that Eddard Stark had four sons, not three. Thus reminding her that Jon Snow is also his father's son. Shows how close the two brothers are. And throughout the book, [[ActionGirl Arya]] and Bran often think of their big brother and even Sansa, the child closest to her mother, realizes how much she misses Jon and how much she wants to see him again. All the children -- Robb, Jon, Sansa, Arya, Bran and Rickon -- think of each other with love and miss one another throughout the series, which is considerably heartwarming in this CrapSackWorld.

*** Ladies and gentlemen of TvTropes, we all know why Ned really raised Jon Snow just like any son of his -- and it is truly heartwarming.

** Robb subsequently using his powers as king to legitimize Jon as a Stark and make him the heir to Winterfell, confidently assuring his mother that Jon is his brother and would never harm a son of his. Made more poignant when Jon turns down Winterfell in ''A Dance With Dragons,'' for his sister's Sansa's sake.

** What's more, he comes to the decision with the return of his direwolf Ghost, who had been gone for most of the book. He finally gets a moment of levity amongst the fighting and politics and it's Ghost's return which allows him this peace and clarity.

* Jon giving his little sister Arya the sword [[ICallItVera Needle]] as a parting gift, as they are among the closest siblings to each other (aside from Robb and Jon, raised side by side as brothers and best friends) and know that they probably won't see each other again long ago. Plus, of course, "stick them with the pointy end" and "don't tell Sansa!"

** Oberyn Martell did the same. He gave his bastard daughters the kind of freedom even princesses can't dream of and trained them in various skills himself. [[DaddysGirl It's no wonder they're so fiercely loyal to him]].
