“S e r J a i m e ?” Even in soiled pink satin and torn lace, Brienne looked more like a man in a gown than a proper woman. “I am grateful, but…you were well away. Why come back?” A dozen quips came to mind, each crueler than the one before, but Jaime only shrugged. “I d r e a m e d o f y o u ,” he said.
[this wasn’t showing up in any of the tags, so I’m posting again]
I made this for the # LoveisLove tag on twitter, but also because I saw a lot of undeserved hate going through the BluePulse tag the other day. Y’all, let’s just be a happy fandom as we always where!!!
Let’s be excited about the new season, let’s cheer for our ships, let’s hope our favorites characters have more screen time. Let’s be loud, let’s have fun! We are getting a new season after so long, why spend the time we could be partying dwelling on hate?
So I think I finally pinpointed the thing that pisses me off the most about all those people going “oh jb’s relationship is so pure without the need for romance!!1!1” and “brienne’s storyline shouldnt revolve around a man!!1!!1″ and all that
It’s that not only are they completely misinterpreting what the shippers are saying, but also that they are ignoring how much sense a sexual/romantic jb relationship would make narratively
Like sex and romance is and has been a huge part of both their storylines??
First we have jaime, the man whose romantic entanglement with his sister cause an entire war, who has been unwaveringly faithful and loyal to her, to the point where he has never been with another woman, who has viewed her as his other half and spends all of ASoS solely motivated by seeing her again, and then has to deal with her rejection. Along with the theme of honor, jaime is mostly characterized by that strong romantic streak, and the unhealthy, codependent dynamic he developed with cersei is a huge part of both his characterisation and the plot overall
and then we have brienne, who was made to realize from a very young age that she wasnt desirable or wanted by men, the woman mockingly called “Brienne the Beauty” whose maidenhead was the subject of a wager, the girl who was told a man would only want her wealth and status, and who devoted her life to renly simply because he showed kindness to her
like, you have two characters, who want desperately to be loved and feel they cannot, who gave themselves over completelely to other people when they gave them acceptance. you also have two characters who have never been in a healthy sexual relationship, and that is all very important to their arcs.
so when i see articles saying that a jb romance would “cheapen the relationship” or would be a “disservice to flatten it into ‘will they or won’t they’” i gotta roll my eyes, because it falls miles off the mark
a jb romance would not only not be a disservice to the chaarcters and the dynamic, it would actually be a perfectly fitting closure to their personal character arcs, the way they have been set up for the past 3 books
The beautiful thing about this scene was that, at first, I was feeling like Tyrion, begging Jaime to stop doing what he was doing, begging him to turn back and save himself.
In a way, I wanted him to be selfish and run away.
But that’s not Jaime Lannister.
Jaime Lannister proved himself to be so selfless and brave and loyal, that I almost felt guilty in demanding those things from him. He showed strength and compassion, he showed that honor that Brienne has always seen in him, he proved to be the commander who doesn’t abandon his soldiers and the man who doesn’t abandon his family even when everything seemed lost.
That’s Jaime Lannister.
That’s who Jaime Lannister truly is.
And I am so proud of him.

Heyyy!! I saw your last Jaime Lannister imagine...I was hoping you'd do a modern Jaime imagine...you know how I f**king love him! Haha! Thanksss!!
Pairing: Jaime Lannister x Reader Fandom: GoT ; ASoIaF Warnings: language + almost smut (lol, I know)
A/N: you know what? thanks to your request, I fell in love with the idea of a modern lannister family. I really had my fun with this and might even continue with it, like.. damn. HOPE YOU LIKE IT BOO <33
let me get this straight,” you put down your coffee and were
already laughing. “Your father wants to have a family reunion. With
the family that you haven’t had contact with in ages, apart from
Tyrion. And because your sister still seems to be obsessed with you,
you told them that you would bring your fiance, despite of the fact
that you don’t have one, and said that I was the fiance?”
I think you're completely right that Jaime sees Aerys in Dany and that that's why we got his POV on that scene, but the irony of all this is that it's Cersei who's Aerys. Cersei who did the very thing Jaime was terrified Aerys would do and killed him to stop. Jaime is seeing the parallels between Aerys and Daenerys for obvious reasons, but missing the ones between Aerys and Cersei, or choosing not to look at them. Dany is actually much further from Aerys than the woman Jaime loves and supports.
Right… And that’s why I am saying it’s not the Dany and Aerys parallel that actually is the important one. It’s the Jaime parallel.
Jaime has the perspective of someone who’s uniquely familiar with the madness and cruelty of the last Targaryen ruler. And whether he was right or wrong, that’s what he perceived when he looked at Dany and Drogon during that battle scene. The effects of trauma and terror and fear aren’t always rational. (Obviously because he took off towards a grown ass fire breathing dragon and literally EVERYONE was Tyrion in that moment he wins #bigmood of the episode.) People in Westeros have this ~idea~ of who the Targaryens are in their heads. Yes, a majority of it has been fed by exaggeration and legend. But for other people like Jaime, it’s based in life experience.
You’re right, Dany is not Aerys. Cersei is definitely the clear, obvious, heavy handed Aerys parallel… But Jaime wasn’t there when Cersei burnt down the Sept, I don’t know how he would have reacted. Any attempt on my part to try and guess would be pure conjecture. But all I am saying is that there was a reason Jaime saw this moment and this battle specifically.
