Added DiffLines:

** In the preview chapter from ''The Winds of Winter'' Arya seemingly has left the Faceless Men and is working as an actress. However she is given mostly small, unsavory roles in unsavory plays and is sexually harassed offstage - while earning so little she can't afford decent shoes, new stockings or even nightwear. In addition, the damage to her personality from her time with the Faceless Men is not fixed, as Arya has trouble distinguishing between herself, Numeria (she dreams about her), her fake Merci persona she put up to find work, '''and''' the roles "Merci" plays.
----> Mercy, I’m Mercy, and tonight I’ll be raped and murdered.

* Ned's scenes near the end, especially when he was thinking about Jon Snow: "''The thought of Jon filled Ned with a sense of shame, and a sorrow too deep for words. If only he could see the boy again, sit and talk with him''". Sigh. At the end, Ned can never tell Jon about his mother, whoever she was. Terrible, right?
** Each of Ned's nightmares about Lyanna's death. The line "''Promise me!''", every time he thinks of keeping his promise is very sad, and knowing what Ned may have promised... [[spoiler:pretty much he promised to raise his nephew Jon Snow as his own son. WildMassGuessing for you. Even worse if you think that Ned was the only one who could reveal to Jon his royal lineage... and he has not been able to do it.]] A war was started for rescue this girl... and she dies in a bed of blood!

* Ned's scenes thoughts near the his end, especially when he was thinking about regrets not having the chance of talking with Jon Snow: Snow one last time: "''The thought of Jon filled Ned with a sense of shame, and a sorrow too deep for words. If only he could see the boy again, sit and talk with him''". Sigh. At the end, Ned can never tell Jon about his mother, whoever she was. Terrible, right?\n
** Each of Ned's nightmares about Lyanna's death. The line mantra "''Promise me!''", pops up every time he thinks there's something that reminds him of keeping his promise is very sad, and knowing what that promise, a burden he has carried on by himself for fourteen years, whatever it was. And if [[EpilepticTrees fandom]] doesn't lie...[[spoiler: Ned may have promised... [[spoiler:pretty much he basically promised to raise his nephew Jon Snow as hiding his own son. WildMassGuessing for you.true origins. Even worse if you think that Ned was the only one who could reveal to Jon his royal lineage... and he has not been able to do it.]] A war was started for rescue this girl... and she dies in anyway. Not to mention how that very war doomed a bed of blood!kingdom.



*** ''"I will give Lyanna your love, Ned. Take care of my children for me."'' He's thinking of his lost love even in [[TogetherInDeath death]]. That's a very sad thing.

* Jon's thoughts when [[spoiler: receives the Pink Letter from [[BastardBastard Ramsay]].]] He's pretty much stuck in ScyllaAndCharybdis situation, where whatever he chooses would be the wrong one. He takes a moment to think of his lost siblings...
-->Jon flexed the fingers of his sword hand. The Night’s Watch takes no part. He closed his fist and opened it again. What you propose is nothing less than treason. He thought of Robb, with snowflakes melting in his hair. Kill the boy and let the man be born. He thought of Bran, clambering up a tower wall, agile as a monkey. Of Rickon’s breathless laughter. Of Sansa, brushing out Lady’s coat and singing to herself. You know nothing, Jon Snow. He thought of Arya, her hair as tangled as a bird’s nest. I made him a warm cloak from the skins of the six whores who came with him to Winterfell…I want my bride back…I want my bride back…I want my bride back…
-->“I think we had best change the plan,” [[BigBrotherInstinct Jon Snow]] said.

** Davos even thinks how sad it is that he is going to White Harbor to ask them to fight for his King, even though this will mean prolonging the war for a people who have already lost much. It's very rare to see anybody who actually thinks in terms of the common people and shows Davos is one of the most decent men and more worthy of a high position then nearly all the other Lords.

* Jon Connington's chapters have him narrate about how he hopes he can see his home castle before he dies. When he does, he goes to the tower with the best view and takes it all in. Even worse when you remember [[spoiler: he's dying of grayscale from saving Tyrion, so he could have easily died without ever getting this moment.]]
* Quentyn thoughts before [[spoiler:his ill-fated attempt to steal a dragon.]] "I should have [[TwinThreesomeFantasy kissed both sisters]]" is a rather innocent (for a Dornishman) take on MustNotDieAVirgin

*** Given that she believed that [[spoiler:her younger brother's heads were on spikes above the gates of Winterfell,]] it makes her version of Winterfell particularly accurate. And horrifying.

* It's hard not to feel sorry for Princess Rhaenyra. Her stepmother, stepmother's father and half-brothers conspire and steal the crown that should have been her's. Her daughter is stillborn. Her 3 eldest sons die tragic deaths in the span of a few months. Two of the men she had raised from the dirt to the level of knights and dragon riders betray her cause. Her growing fear and paranoia from all these tragedies cause her to turn against those who do stay loyal to her. Her dragon is killed. And finally she is eaten alive by her half-brother's dragon.

** The deaths of Helaena and her children are gut wrenching as well. Jaehaerys was assassinated in front of his mother and siblings, after Helaena had been forced to mark Maelor for death. She became so deeply depressed that she threw herself from a window in Maegor's Holdfast and was impaled on the spikes, dying instantly as a spike pierced her throat (though there are rumors that she was actually murdered). Then Maelor, having been smuggled to Bitterbridge, was found and torn limb from limb by a mob of overzealous Black supporters. And finally, Jaehaera also threw herself from a window in Maegor's Holdfast, but didn't get a quick death like her mother; she lingered in agony for half an hour before expiring (again, there were rumored that she too had actually been murdered).
* The death of Daemon Blackfyre and his twin sons. After a glorious one-on-one battle with Ser Gwayne Corbray of the Kingsguard during the Battle of Redgrass Field, he is caught in the open by his half brother Brynden Rivers "Bloodraven", who rains a volley of arrows on him and his sons. It was widely seen as an undeserving death devoid of glory and rather dishonorable move from Bloodraven, who would carry infamy throughout his life for this act.
