A Flayed Man Holds No Secrets by kanako91 A Flayed Man Holds No Secrets by kanako91
A Song of Ice and Fire fan art :heart:

«Roose has no feelings, you see. Those leeches that he loves so well sucked all the passions out of him years ago. He does not love, he does not hate, he does not grieve. This is a game to him, mildly diverting. Some men hunt, some hawk, some tumble dice. Roose plays with men. You and me, these Freys, Lord Manderly, his plump new wife, even his bastard, we are but his playthings».
Lady Barbrey Dustin (A Song of Ice and Fire - Book Five: A Dance with Dragons, page 495)



:heart:
I think the passage above sums up why I love Roose Bolton so much. You know, I have a soft spot for cold, cunning and manipulative men :giggle:

Obviously, in the drawing, it's my mental image of him, since GRR Martin gives a precise description only of his pale-pale eyes, his whispering voice and his pink cloak with white fur and drops of blood :XD: Roose Bolton, the only man who can keep being manly and badass even in pink, LOL
So, if you imagine him differently, I'm fine with that, but I'll keep my version, even when the HBO's one is out (I love the actor they cast, though) :flirty:


I hope that also the non-readers of ASoIaF will appreciate this :D

I love your version! This is similar to what I've imagined in my head. But yes, HBO did a fine job casting our beloved Bolton!

A pity it didn't make it to the TV show, it would have been hilarious.

That look is making my skin crawl. Someone who doesn't feel anything is far more frightening than someone who hates.

My thoughts exactly :D There's something inhuman in no feeling anything (and me likes it a lot, eh eh).
