jaime/brienne week

day two: duty + favorite song day

bruce springsteen, this is your sword (½)

These are the few things I leave to thee
This sword of our fathers with lessons hard thought
This shield strong and sturdy from battles well-fought

This is your sword, this is your shield, this is the power of love revealed
Carry it with you wherever you go, and give all the love that you have in your soul [x]

'I dreamed of you,' he said.

Jaime & Brienne Appreciation Week

           Day 1 - Moment you fell in love

“Ser Jaime?” 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 dreamed of you,” he said.

That up there was the moment yours truly realized she was well and truly fucked as far as this ship went - I had been heavily considering it long before this line happened, but that was what cemented it and made me go from ‘I like them a lot’ to ‘well darn it OTP MATERIAL HERE’, and so I figured that since it was the day one theme, I could try and do some meta-ing about it. Then I figured that since Jaime is not the only one having interesting dreams about Brienne but the reverse is also valid, I could do some meta-ing on both instances. So what you’re getting here is a) me blathering about the line above, b) me blathering about the actual dream, c) me blathering about the three times Brienne dreams of Jaime in AFFC. Which is going to amount to, how I think this whole having dreams about each other business is totally one of reasons there’s a very high chance they’ll be a thing because it’s written in the ‘they love each other or if they don’t they will’ sense, but I digress. Cut because it’s really long. /o\
