A mother's protection

I wrote an essay comparing HP and the book serie A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin about how the two books use characters in the role of the "Mother", their motivation to protect their children, and especially how they contrast such characters belonging to different moral sides of the story.

I would strongly advice against reading that essay if you haven't read yet (but what are you waiting for ?!) Martin's serie, as it is full of spoilers for all four published books of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Without further ado :
