i miss renly ; ;

2

My brother instructs us to stage a tournament in honor of Lord Stark’s appointment as Hand of the King.

frogs-smell-amazing  asked:

Hey, is there any textual evidence that Jon Connington was in love with Rhaegar or is it just a fan theory? Reading the books i thought they were just really good friends and had a kind of bromance. Have I missed something?

Er um yeah…

The bells tolled for all of us that day. For Aerys and his queen, for Elia of Dorne and her little daughter, for every true man and honest woman in the Seven Kingdoms. And for my silver prince.

As he climbed he remembered past ascents—a hundred with his lord father, who liked to stand and look out over woods and crags and sea and know that all he saw belonged to House Connington, and one (only one!) with Rhaegar Targaryen.

At the welcoming feast, the prince had taken up his silver-stringed harp and played for them. A song of love and doom, Jon Connington recalled, and every woman in the hall was weeping when he put down the harp. Not the men, of course. Particularly not his own father, whose only love was land.

“really good friends” 

I rose too high, loved too hard, dared too much. I tried to grasp a star, overreached, and fell.

Jon Connington remembered Prince Rhaegar’s wedding all too well. Elia was never worthy of him.

“Your father’s lands are beautiful,” he said. His silvery hair was blowing in the wind, and his eyes were a deep purple, darker than this boy’s.

“a kind of bromance”

Me: Hi Mr. Martin; I really love – wow, this mic is loud – I really love these books, so thank you so much for this opportunity. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about the series is the way that the viewpoints keep expanding. [GRRM nods.] Like, in Feast I really appreciated the Dornish characters, because it was interesting to get another racial perspective on the events – [George nods again, other fans start yowling about spoilers] – I’m not spoiling anything! (sheepishly, muttered) It’s six years old, for god’s sake. [some laughter at that] Anyway, um. So I am gay [I get a ‘woo!’ here], if you couldn’t tell by my voice [laughter from the crowd] and I just… ugh, people are gonna yell at me! I’m trying to figure out a way to say this without spoiling, um. Okay, so one of the new POVs, I got the sense that he was gay? And I was wondering if I am crazy and reading into that or if like, that thing was actually a thing. That was happening. [crowd laughter]
GRRM: You mean in Feast?
Me: No, I mean in the new one.
GRRM: Oh in the new one!
Me: Yeah, I finished! Um. I’m talking about “The Lost Lord.” Sorry, sorry! Trying not to spoil anything, ugh. [laughter]
GRRM: If you are talking about what I think you’re talking about, then you’re right. [applause]
Me: Awesome! Well thank you for doing that, because it’s something that’s important to a lot of people.
GRRM: There have been gay characters before, of course.
Me: Yeah, but I mean, a perspective character.
GRRM: I try to be a little subtle with these things, like with Renly and Loras, I mostly hinted around it. I mean – I didn’t think they were subtle hints! [raucous laughter at this]

I think you did miss something, yes. Sorry.

anonymous asked:

fyi, Brienne is the only surviving member of Camp Renly now.

Yeah, she is.

Brienne ✔️

Renly

Catelyn

Margaery

Loras

Ahhh those season 2 memories of Brienne making her big debut at Camp Renly. ❤️

You know what I miss most about Camp Renly?

They’ve all gone their separate ways now but I hope they stay friends forever. :’-)

anonymous asked:

Tormund, abt Jaime, in Brienne's hearing. "Hes prettier than my daughters." Jaime, abt Tormund, in Brienne's hearing. "Does that wildling really think he has a place next to a Lady of Westeros?" Brienne. *rolls eyes* "I miss renly"

LMAOOOOO brienne would totally want to get out of there as fast as possible. She’s not used to getting a male’s attention (now she has 2) so she’d probably be a little uncomfortable or think they’re kidding about liking her. 

But im laughing bc those 2 things are totally something both Tormund and Jaime would say. I really want them to be jealous over Brienne :)

During the Dwarf parody of the "War of the Five Kings", everyone reactions from body language and their minds.
  • Dwarf actors come out and act like they are the five kings.
  • Loras: I am out. I am 100% done with this fucker's shit. He pissed me off now. He is now dead! I miss my Renly. *runs out of the wedding*
  • Olenna: This is very horrible. Poor Sansa! Poor Loras! When did Balon die? Joffrey is toast!
  • Varys: This wedding is so boring. I feel bad for those people.
  • Margaery: Oh he is dead before our wedding night. Joffery is a fucking monster. I can not believe I married this shit. Oh wait....
  • Sansa: *watches the actors enact the red wedding scene and tries not to cry. Ivory goes to Steel.* I can murder Joffery now or later.
  • Tommen: *laughs but stops due to his uncle.* This is very sad now. I wish they skipped Joffrey and had me as king. None of this would have happened.
  • Tyrion: What an asshole? I can not believe I am related to this asshole.
  • Joffrey: I am enjoying this.
