↳ 02. Most Powerful Lines (4/5) || Jaime Lannister

The words echoed in his head in the dimness of Baelor’s Sept. Above him, all the windows had gone black, and he could see the faint light of distant stars. The sun had set for good and all. The stench of death was growing stronger, despite the scented candles. The smell reminded Jaime Lannister of the pass below the Golden Tooth, where he had won a glorious victory in the first days of the war. On the morning after the battle, the crows had feasted on victors and vanquished alike, as once they had feasted on Rhaegar Targaryen after the Trident. How much can a crown be worth, when a crow can dine upon a king?

Friendly reminder that Samwell Tarly’s father resented and disowned him because he thought his son was weak and not worthy to be his heir. Sam would go on to become a steward of the Night’s Watch, join the Ranging Beyond the Wall, survive the Battle of the Fist of the First Men, and be the first black brother in eight thousand years to kill an Other/White Walker.

Get to Know Clara - #27 She’s doesn’t let the Doctor cross the line with her (this is especially true when she hardly knows him and isn’t sure what to think of his odd behavior).

When Tywin Lannister spoke, men obeyed. When Cersei spoke, they felt free to to counsel her, to contradict her, even refuse her. It is all because I am a woman. Because I cannot fight them with a sword. They gave Robert more respect then they give me, and Robert was a witless sot. She would not suffer it, especially not from Jaime.

Get to Know Clara - #30 She describes herself as bossy and actually loves being called the boss so much that she goes home repeating it over and over with pride. Like many character traits, it is one with a good side and a bad side. The bad side is that she can come off rude and even dismissive of others at times when telling them what to do, but the good side is that she can take control of a situation, show leadership, and isn’t afraid to stand up when she needs to.

but the wolves of the pack had been taken and slain and skinned.

I am not blind, nor deaf. I know that you all believe me weak, frightened, feeble. Your father knew me better. Oberyn was ever the viper. Deadly, dangerous, unpredictable. No man dared tread on him. I was the grass. Pleasant, complaisant, sweet-smelling, swaying with every breeze. Who fears to walk upon the grass? But it is the grass that hides the viper from his enemies and shelters him until he strikes. Your father and I worked more closely than you know … but now he is gone. The question is, can I trust his daughters to serve me in his place?

ASOIAF 30 days challenge   -   Day No. 24   - Favorite memory shared by any character - Needle was Robb and Bran and Rickon, her mother and her father, even Sansa. Needle was Winterfell’s grey walls, and the laughter of its people. Needle was the summer snows, Old Nan’s stories, the heart tree with its red leaves and scary face, the warm earthy smell of the glass gardens, the sound of the north wind rattling the shutters of her room. Needle was Jon Snow’s smile. He used to mess my hair and call me “little sister,” she remembered, and suddenly there were tears in her eyes.”  ― Arya Stark, A Feast for Crows
