   At the beginning of the series,  Sansa is an 11-year-old girl, who believes in fairy tales and songs. She is beautiful, taking after her mother with auburn hair, bright blue eyes, and high cheekbones. She has a direwolf named Lady., and she loves lemoncakes. She when her mother brushes her hair. 
   Then her father, Eddard Stark, is given the position of Hand of the King, and she is moved from her home of Winterfell, to the South and King's Landing.
  But in King's Landing her father is betrayed, and then murdered by the boy she thought she loved. She is kept as a prisoner in the South while brother fights a war to get her and her sister, Arya, back. And Sansa's belief that life is like a fairy tale is destroyed.


 

"I am loyal to my beloved Joffrey."
 Sansa is scared, but she's a Stark. She's brave and strong. So when she is forced into this betrothal with Joffrey after her father is beheaded in front of her, she doesn't break down in front of the Lannisters or beg for compassion. She puts on mask, a farce that leads people to believe she is still in love with monster who murdered who father.  

1. Brick by Boring Brick | Paramore x
"She lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind"

2. Captive | Liz Durrett 
x
"I sit in his corner
With my hands bound and my eyes closed
His voice is just a whisper
But it cuts deep into my soul"

"Sansa pitied them. Sansa envied them."
Sansa was just eleven when A Game of Thrones started. She was just a child, but the terrible things that the people did to her got rid of child's heart quickly. She no long believes in fairy tales and songs, but she still wants to be innocent and naive of the things she's seen, like the Tyrell cousins.

3. Winter | Tori Amos x
"When you gonna wake up your mind
Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near 
You say that things change my dear"

4. Leave My Body | Florence + the Machine 
x
"I don't need a husband, I don't need no wife
And don't need the day, I don't need the night
And I don't need the birds let them fly away
And I don't want the clouds, they never seem to stay"

"Sing, little bird. Sing for your life."

Sansa's whole story, to me, revolves around lying,or "singing," to appease her captors and save her life, and how taxing it is. Although that might not be what the quote really means, that's what it means to me.

5. Blindness | Metric x
"Find us a trapdoor, find us a plane
Tell the survivors help is on the way
I was a blindfold, never complained
All the survivors singing in the rain
I was the one with the world at my feet
Got us a battle, leave it up to me"

6. Lifeline | Imogen Heap 
x
"Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace,
and keep breathing,
keep breathing"

"There are no heroes...in life, the monsters win."
With all that Sansa's experienced, it's not surprising that she might feel defeated; that she might feel like no matter what she does, the hungry, enterprising Lannisters will always win.

7. Vampire | People in Planes x
"Oh, you know you'll never find an easy way
It's in your head
The devil says when it's over (over)"

8. Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool | Editors 
x
"I don't wanna be left out or get fucked
But there's a talent in your lies
If your chewing with an open mouth, raw meat
Your blood drool attracts the flies"

"My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel."

My headcanon for Sansa is that she grows up and travels back to Winterfell, and stakes her claim in the North as queen. She has become tough and resilient, or in Catelyn's words, "as fierce and hard as the North."

9. Woman King | Iron & Wine 
x
"Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see a
Woman king, sword in hand
Swing at some evil and bleed"

10. Control | Poe 
x
"Well, you may be king for the moment
But I am a queen understand
I've got your pawns and your bishops
And castles all inside the palm of my hand"
