12 ways Jaime looks at Brienne (Riverrun)

I just rewatched No One for the 123454th time for scientific research and the level of Jaime’s hearteyes is just incredible, not just at the end or when Brienne tries to hand over Oathkeeper to him, but ALL. THE. TIME. Every second we see his face, he looks like an awkward teenager trying to keep himself together around his crush


wtf Jaime you don’t fool anyone Cersei is the last person you’re thinking about right now (that little smile I’m dead)


Maybe if I purse my lips, she will come and kiss me

Flirting level: Kingslayer

upupupitsgoingtobeabigbigbigday replied to your photo:@lala-kate your bracelet is done! I’ll be listing…

It’s gorgeous! Would you mind telling me how much it costs? I would love to buy one. :)

Thank you so much for your interest! I’m flattered you like it.

When someone commissions a piece from me, I usually let them decide if they want to share the design with others first before I put more in the shop. So, if @lala-kate is ok with more of these out there, then I will definitely make more to put in the shop (price will likely be in the $50 range). The button will be different because the one I used on this original piece was a one-of-a-kind. But I will try to find something similar that works.

Thanks again for asking!

The greatest trick GRRM ever pulled was using a single act in the beginning of book one to convince the reader that Jaime Lannister, the biggest procrastinator this side of Rhaegar Targaryen, is impulsive. 

Even defenestrating Bran isn’t truly impulsive. A quick decision, sure, but an impulsive act is one that is performed in a moment when it could’ve been delayed until further consideration could be given. So, a bad choice? Sure. But it isn’t like he could’ve put off killing the kid until later on. 

Same with everything else he does. Going back for Brienne? A considered choice performed within the available time limit. Leaping into the bear pit? Same. 

This is a man who spent fifteen years knowing Robert was abusive, yet did nothing to stop him. True, Cersei asked him not to…but wouldn’t an impulsive man have done it anyway? Sometime over those fifteen years? A man who even as a teenage boy waited well over a year, until the last second, to kill Aerys…and even changed clothes to do it. A man who waited until the last possible second to bust Tyrion out. A man who hangs around King’s Landing pretty much watching the Kettleblacks humping Cersei’s leg and does nothing. Who finally gets Lancel, the “other man,” alone, and instead of attacking him listens and counsels and tries to get him to eat something and encourages him to get out there and live his life. 

Now Cersei? She is impulsive. Falyse and Mr Falyse, go kill Bronn for me. Oh no, Qyburn, here’s Falyse for your vivisection needs. Oh hey Qyburn send Falyse back I have use for her. This pattern - decisions made in the moment based upon whims that she forgets she even made at all and then when the whim turns out to have been a massive fuckup she covers up with even more impulsive bad moves - repeats for her. But Jaime is not this way. This is yet another of the million ways Jaime and Cersei - who are truly nothing alike - differ. 

The only truly impulsive act I can remember seeing from Jaime Lannister? That one time he busted Red Ronnet Connington upside the head for trash talking Brienne. The Golden Bitchslap was performed without thought or planning and did not have to happen.

But other than that? Nah. This man is not impulsive. And to be fair, though he waits until the last second, unlike Rhaegar, he does know when the last second is.

Pod: How long have you been sleeping with Jaime?
Brienne: That’s disgusting. And wrong. I don’t even get– why would– I’ve never had sex with anyone, anywhere. It’s none of your- you have- the nerve, the audacity, Jaime is my friend. And he is terrible, face-wise. And how- how- do I know, frankly, that you’re not sleeping with him? Maybe you are. Maybe you’re trying to throw me off? Hm. Check and mate!


Then she was back at the Whispers, standing amongst the ruins and facing Clarence Crabb. He was huge and fierce, mounted on an aurochs shaggier than he was. The beast pawed the ground in fury, tearing deep furrows in the earth. Crabb’s teeth had been filed into points. When Brienne went to draw her sword, she found her scabbard empty. “No,” she cried, as Ser Clarence charged. It wasn’t fair. She could not fight without her magic sword. Ser Jaime had given it to her. The thought of failing him as she had failed Lord Renly made her want to weep. “My sword. Please, I have to find my sword.”Brienne VII, AFfC
