My secret girl


SECRET relationship;


The fact that you're in a relationship with this person isn't public knowledge. Actually, no one knows about it except for the people involved. Maybe you guys are just private like that; on the other hand, it may be a necessity to keep things a secret from others. Maybe you're both team mates, and others on the team would give you grief, or you're not suppose to be dating, or you're not the type to usually date and you're only testing the waters. Perhaps it's the combination of you two, possibly an odd couple, that would bring some controversy or some teasing. Or, you know, you could not want to deal with friends and relatives being busybodies. Your reasons are your own.

Are you content with stealing moments to be together as a couple? Do you want to make your relationship known and the fact that you can't drives you batty? Remember, there are lots of benefits to dating in secret. You can be yourselves completely, away from prying eyes, and get to know each other better as potential longterm romantic partners. In a way, it's ideal.

...still, do you ever wish you could scream from the rooftops how much you care for your significant other?

As the weeks passed since the arrival of the white raven, snow fell on Winterfell, a cloak of pure white covering the charred brokenness of Sansa's childhood home. Jon was away, touring the North, meeting in person with his bannermen and their people, to ensure loyalty and learn the needs of the North. Sansa remained at Winterfell oversee the restoration of the castle. While the servants were tasked with clearing the wreckage and erasing all traces of the Boltons, Sansa met with visitors, sent and received ravens, and walked in the Godswood.

Sansa asked for Lord Baelish to meet her there, in the woods, instead of the council chambers where she met the other lords. She didn't want to give the impression that she was under Lord Baelish's sway, or held him in a privileged position over the others. Especially considering how close they already were.

She waited for him by the heart tree, thinking of the last time they met here, the "pretty picture" of Lord Baelish on the Iron Throne with Sansa at his side. She had pushed him away then, but it had been on her mind ever since.

He's been staying in the village near Winterfell, although he doesn't need to now that the restoration is underway -- he has no part in it, and in fact he knows that he should be well on his way back to the Vale before the heaviest of the snow hits. He can wait a few more days, he keeps telling himself, even as he knows it's not true.

So when Sansa asks him to meet her in the Godswood, he comes without hesitation. He's not particularly religious, preferring to make his own luck, but he can explain away a visit to a Godswood easier than he can a visit to Winterfell proper, anyway.

He addresses her formally as he approaches. There's no telling who's watching, especially in this stronghold of the Starks. "Lady Sansa."

She's looking at the heart tree when he calls her name, and when she turns to see him she smiles, just faintly, for a moment before it melts like spring snow. "Lord Baelish," she replies as she moves toward him, the snow underfoot crunching softly. "Thank you for coming. I had heard you had not yet returned to the Vale." She stops close enough that she could reach out and touch him, if she so wished. The proximity allows for their voices to be hushed, since what they spoke of together was so rarely for anyone's ears but their own. "Is something keeping you?"

There's a very big reason he has been reluctant to return to the Vale, but since that reason is her, he's not going to be exactly truthful about it. Just mostly truthful. "I wanted to be sure that you would not require any more assistance." If, perhaps, former allies of Ramsay's were unhappy with the outcome of the battle and tried to make trouble. "With the work well in hand, it is time for me to think about returning to the Vale. Before the winter makes travel impossible."

Sansa is not so naive to not know exactly why Lord Baelish has yet to leave. Rather, she wanted to hear it from him, or at least whatever half-truths he would tell. "I thank you for your concern, but I believe we are for the moment secure." She glances around at the snow. "However...should the roads back to the Vale already be treacherous..." She looks back at him, meeting his eyes, knowing that he sees what it is she actually means, that hard roads would be an excuse. "...then you must stay. If you believe the Vale itself is secure in your absence, if just for a little while longer."

"The men of the Vale do not want Cersei Lannister on the throne any more than anyone at Winterfell does." If they're under the illusion that it was the Lannisters who brought about Jon Arryn's death, well, that's all the better for him. "They will not endanger the alliance that can remove her from that position." The alliance that he brought them. If they turn on him, they lose the benefit to themselves.

"Perhaps it is better if I remain until the roads are in better condition."

"That would be wise. You could use one of our ravens to inform your men in the Vale. It would also be improper of me not to offer you accommodations at Winterfell. With Jon and his entourage away, we have an abundance of empty rooms."

It's all absolutely plausible reasons to bring Lord Baelish into Winterfell without Sansa appearing to be doing it for any reason other than propriety. Appearances matter, as Littlefinger knew well.

"I would be well-advised to send a raven to the Vale. To inform them that I will not be returning right away." Also to remind them that he's its protector, which is easier to do when he's there.

"Lodging at Winterfell would be more comfortable than in the village." Plus it would be rude to turn down the invitation of the lady of Winterfell, which, after the disappearance and presumed death of Eddard Stark's trueborn sons, is what she is, as the oldest remaining child. Even if her brother is the King in the North.

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-30 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
"It's settled, then," she says. "You shall be the guest of the Starks until the roads are safer. Now I need you to come to Winterfell and ask. For lodging. For the ravens. And I will be gracious enough to give you what you need." She tilts her head, lifts an eyebrow. "Understood?"

There was a time when Sansa was a child, and honest as a child, trusting as a child, straightforward as a child. She is a child no longer, and has learned the value of such simple pieces of theater. Lord Baelish has to come to her to request lodging and she has to acquiesce out of the goodness of her heart, instead of her asking him to stay because after everything she wants him close.

[personal profile] littlexfinger 2017-01-30 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Understood." It has to come from him, rather than from her. It's better if this seems to be his idea. For her reputation, if for no other reason.

"I will give you some time to return to Winterfell, then I will come and make my request."
notenderheart: (Default)

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-30 05:36 am (UTC)(link)
She nods, then reaches out to take his hand. Something small, simple, yet significant, or at least she hopes so. Something to express her desire for something more than his mere presence.

"Goodbye, Lady Sansa. I shall see you shortly." There are ways that things must be done when someone might be watching. But he won't be waiting any longer than seems necessary before making his way to Winterfell.
notenderheart: (Default)

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-30 11:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Sansa withdrew her hand and nodded again.

"Goodbye Lord Baelish," she answered, and turned toward Winterfell. It was a ten minute walk, back through the snowy woods. When she entered the castle she went to her bedroom, the large room that had been her mother and father's, and picked up some sewing to wait for Lord Baelish's arrival.

He returns to his lodgings in the village, to make it look as though he had simply stepped out on some sort of errand, before getting back on his horse and riding to Winterfell. Once he passes through the gate, he tells the first person who approaches him that he would like to speak to the lady of Winterfell, and waits for Sansa to allow him entrance.

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-31 12:28 am (UTC)(link)
The servant comes to find Sansa, knocking respectfully before entering to inform Sansa that Lord Baelish had arrived. She puts her sewing aside and stands, pulling her wolfs fur cloak to her shoulders. She descends the stairs and enters the courtyard, followed by the servant. A small smile appears on her lips when she sees Lord Baelish, but it's gone in a fraction of a second.

"Lord Baelish," she says, approaching. "To what do we owe this honor?"
littlexfinger: (pic#10369692)

[personal profile] littlexfinger 2017-01-31 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
He's standing in the courtyard waiting for her, holding the horse's reins in his hand.

"I'm afraid I must beg your indulgence, Lady Stark. It seems I tarried overly long in returning to the Vale, and now travel grows more treacherous by the day. I have come to ask for the use of your ravens to send messages to the men of the Vale, informing them of my delay, and for lodging until such time as the roads are passable."

This is a charade he can play easily.
notenderheart: (Default)

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-31 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
Sansa nods to the servant, and he goes to take the reins from Lord Baelish.

"Winterfell and the North owes you our gratitude, Lord Baelish. Our ravens are at your disposal." She turns to a nearby maidservant. "Please prepare a room for Lord Baelish. One of the rooms in the main tower." In simpler times, the tower was full of Starks, Sansa's mother and father and her siblings. Now with her parents dead, three of her brothers dead, her sister lost and Jon away, the tower is empty save for her own room. It's convenient for such a guest. It's also discreet.

"If you will come with me, Lord Baelish, I will bring you to our Maester."
littlexfinger: (Default)

[personal profile] littlexfinger 2017-01-31 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
He follows Sansa as the head for the Maester's quarters. "Could I trouble you as well for someone to go to the village and retrieve my belongings from there?" That hadn't been part of their ruse, but he hadn't brought everything with him because they needed to be able to make it convincing, and he hadn't wanted anyone to know that he was expecting to be granted permission to stay here.
notenderheart: (Default)

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-31 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
"Of course." Sansa leads him to the rookery. It's dimly lit, sunlight streaming through slit windows and a couple candles burning on the table where Maester Wolkan is sitting with a younger apprentice. The Maester looks up and immediately leaps to his feet. "My lady...how...how can I serve you?"

"Lord Baelish needs to send a raven to the Vale," she answers, her voice cold. She turns to the apprentice. "Please tell Mace to take some men to retrieve Lord Baelish's things?" She turns to her guest. "Where were you staying?"
littlexfinger: (pic#10369675)

[personal profile] littlexfinger 2017-01-31 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
He gives the name of the inn where he's staying in the village, and holds out a key. "That's for the room. There shouldn't be too much to carry."

Once the apprentice is on his way, Petyr picks up quill and parchment to compose a note to the men in the Vale.
notenderheart: (sideways)

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-31 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
Maester Wolkan looks away from what Lord Baelish is writing, as is proper. He's clearly nervous, and clearly eager to please his Lady, who has been kind enough to keep him even though he served her late husband.

Sansa, on the other hand, stand over Lord Baelish's shoulder, not in a way that is likely to feel invasive, but in a position where she can see what he is writing.
littlexfinger: (pic#10369646)

[personal profile] littlexfinger 2017-01-31 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
He's writing exactly what he said he would, a short message explaining that due to the condition of the roads, he will be delayed in his return to the Vale, but he's sure they will pay attention to the guidance of Robin in his absence. He finishes the note and attaches it to a raven, which he sends off to deliver the message.
notenderheart: (Default)

[personal profile] notenderheart 2017-01-31 05:06 am (UTC)(link)
Sansa is well aware that Lord Baelish will always choose himself and his own interests, even if it means betraying her. She has not forgotten him handing her over to Ramsey, even if he vindicated himself with the force of the Vale. Still, she is pleased he seems to be playing this game as they had agreed.

Once the raven has flown, Sansa turns to him. "I can have the kitchen prepare us dinner. My brother ensured the larders were well stocked before he left. Will you join me?"
littlexfinger: (Default)

[personal profile] littlexfinger 2017-02-01 02:54 am (UTC)(link)
Right now his interests align quite closely with hers. He won't be doing anything to jeopardize that.

"I would be honored to join you for dinner."

"Since winter's arrival, we have only heated rooms as they are needed. The great hall takes quite a bit of wood." When she was a child in Winterfell, she never appreciated what it took to manage such a place. Now she's found a sort of solace in it, a simple sense of control. "If you don't mind, the kitchen is likely to be more comfortable. And less empty."
