* “Mhysa! Mhysa!”- tens of thousands of newly freed slaves proclaim Dany as their mother in scores of different tongues.


* When Baelon, the second son of King Jaehaerys I, was born, everyone feared that he and his older brother Aemon would cause a repeat of [[CainAndAbel the tensions that had existed between their grandfather Aenys and their great-uncle Maegor]] that had ravaged Westeros...but Aemon and Baelon proved them all wrong [[BashBrothers by growing up to be utterly inseperable and the closest of friends]].



* King Baelor walking through a pit of vipers to free his cousin, Aemon the Dragonknight, with full confidence that the Seven would protect them. He was wrong about Seven protecting them, but it was still a valiant feat. And for that matter, his treatment of the Dornish. He released their hostages and walked thousands of miles to Sunspear from King's Landing barefoot in a show of humility. On the king's way back, the Prince of Dorne, fearing that Baelor's death would threaten the new peace, commanded his bannermen to be as accommodating as possible.

the afterlife, and promises to carry his message about Daenerys being the promised prince to the maesters of Oldtown.]]

''He is no true knight but he saved me all the same'', she told the Mother. ''Save him if you can, and gentle the rage inside him.''



to:

* While Arya is at a minimum antagonistic towards her for a good portion of the book, Sansa in her introduction is seen covering for Arya when the latter attracts Mordane's attention, tries to include her in the conversations and later is implied to be jealous of Arya spending more time with Mycah than herself. It isn't talked about much but Sansa does love her sister as much as Arya loves her.
