otp: i dreamed of you

anonymous asked:

I could forgive ppl for not seeing Jaime in love with brienne (kimd of) but to say that brienne's feelings for Jaime is just platonic is laughable like I'm sorry but if you keep thinking about your "best friend" naked and blushing because of how hot he looked when he was naked I'm sorry but... your feelings for him... aren't... *platonic* xDD

THANK YOU?? no but like honestly not just THAT, but you don’t dream of your best friend putting cloaks on your shoulders of whichever kind, you don’t dream of him dying in front of you in place of your last canon crush, you don’t call for them all the time when you’re sick and maybe you’d die for them but not even thinking before getting hanged for them in front of the person you swore vows to when vows are the most important thing to you? and THE WHITE CLOAK BECOMES YOU? and I HAVE TO DO THIS FOR JAIME every damned time she thinks about why she’s looking for sansa? and WOULD HE LET ME CRY ON HIS SHOULDER? that’s not friendly, that’s plain fucking obvious and if they don’t see it they have never had a crush on someone

anonymous asked:

why do you ship jaime/brienne? do you think they are going to be endgame or just a lots of wasted moments on screen?

oh boy. wow okay, i just love them?? this is gonna be a super incoherent mess of both book and show canon, so sorry in advance lmao.

jaime and brienne are just so good for each other. they challenge each other, they change each other, they grow together and separately because of their relationship. they are constantly pushing each other to be better. they tear down each other’s walls and then build each other up again. they balance each other out so well. naive, honorable, good brienne and damaged, arrogant and experienced jaime?? like wow, goodness. 

they teach each other so much. jaime shows brienne how knighthood isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and shatters a lot of her naivety about the world. brienne originally thinks so much in black and white. jaime killed the king, so he’s bad. renly danced with her, so he’s good. but jaime helps shift her perspective on “good” and “bad” because he’s such a morally-grey character (one of the reasons i love him so much). brienne teaches jaime about the value of true honor, not the bullshit he was fed in king’s landing, but real strength and dignity. something that you have to find inside yourself, not something you put on like a mask when it suits you.

one of my favorite aspects of their relationship is the idea that “things aren’t always as they seem.” jaime and brienne both have these concrete ideas about the world and other people that completely shift because of their relationship. jaime originally calls her things like “wench” and “ugly”, etc. because 1. he’s an asshole (lol) and 2. that’s all he saw at first. but big, strong, “ugly” brienne turned out to be so soft and “astonishing”. in the same way, arrogant, selfish jaime finds himself constantly putting himself at risk for this girl he barely knows. saving her from being raped by the bloody mummers, jumping into the bear pit to save her, etc. jaime becomes someone who saves people, rather than hurts them. brienne does that, and jaime changes her as well. brienne only saw jaime as a “kingslayer”, an “oathbreaker”, a “man without honor.” but then she learns the truth about the sack of king’s landing when he opens up to her - because jaime wants her to know this, wants her not to think so terribly of him, her of all people. jaime doesn’t want brienne to think of him as “the kingslayer” but as jaime. and after that, he is always jaime to brienne, and it crushes my soul. 

brienne names his sword “oathkeeper” and vows to save sansa stark in his name. not just because she wants to save sansa, but because she wants jaime to be proud of her, because she wants to “find his honor.” she can’t bear the idea of failing him. brienne dreams of jaime fastening a rainbow cloak around her shoulders and shouts his name in her sleep. she’s constantly wishing that he hadn’t left her. and jaime finds himself defending brienne even after they’re separated. he yells at men who call her “wench” and insist that her name is brienne. it’s a complete turnaround from how they originally saw each other. they’re no longer “the wench” and “the kingslayer” to each other, but jaime and brienne. two imperfect, messy humans who care so damn much about each other even if they don’t want to. no matter how much they could say they don’t, the prove themselves wrong with every action they take.

do i think they will become canon? as far as i’m concerned they already are. they have a meaningful relationship that’s extremely important to the story, and that matters whether they get married and have babies or not. (but god i wish they would). i’m terrified that jaime is going to die before the thing is done, either while he kills cersei or saving brienne. but even if they don’t become “canon” in the way you mean, their scenes will be by no means wasted. show-runners and writers don’t just throw a bunch of shit into a show and waste screen time on things that don’t matter. everything we’ve seen on game of thrones and in the asoiaf books so far has had or will have a major payoff, including jaime and brienne. will they live happily ever after? i’m not sure (though i hope). but their arc will absolutely come full-circle by the time the show/books are finished, that i can guarantee. it’s all leading up to something big!

i probably left out about 1000 things, but i don’t really do like “research” meta, i just spew my feelings all over the place and hope for the best lmao. basically i just really love jaime and brienne. they’re one of my favorite ships of all time and arguably one of the best ships in game of thrones/a song of ice and fire (and like, all media, tbh). they’re so good and i want to die because of it!!!!!

accidental-rambler  asked:

hmm, if we're going with non-s/jm ships, how about Brienne/Jaime got the shipping meme thingy :) ?

A++++++ DECISION. (this is gonna be book!based bc I don’t fuck with the show okay. But this is like stage 1 otp for asoiaf good choice) 

  • falls asleep on the couch- I feel like this would be Jaime tbh. It’s been a long day, he lay down for TWO MINUTES, BRIENNE, and bam. Asleep. (bonus points if he was trying to surprise her coming home and fell asleep waiting for her. Double bonus points if he’s naked (bc ofc he would be)) 

  • makes friends with the neighbors- Jaime makes charming small talk with them to their faces and bitches about them behind their backs. Brienne is actually genuinely nice to them but is a bit shy and won’t usually initiate any of the friendships. 

  • is the adventurous eater- I’m going to say Brienne because she’s kind of like *shrugs* about food and will basically eat pretty much anything?? Jaime is a fusspot. 

  • hogs the covers at night- J A I M E. All pretence at gallantry fucking dies when he’s cold. (No it doesn’t, that’s a lie, he steals them accidentally and Brienne is miffed but too nice to say anything but then he gets all :O and dramatic bc DARLING YOU’RE FREEZING LET ME PILE THESE BLANKETS ON TOP OF YOU AND CUDDLE YOU WARM AGAIN. Brienne is blushing and telling him he’s an idiot bc he’s SO OTT but she’s also giggling just a little bit and they end up in a little snuggle ball of warmth and duvet so it’s all good) 

  • forgets to do the dishes- Jaime. Brienne is very diligent and likes things to be cleaned properly and immediately. Jaime got used to growing up with 17000 servants at his beck and call like he drops things and expects them to pick themselves up and wash themselves.

    One time Brienne left the dishes to see if Jaime would take the hint and wash them up. He did not. It got to the stage of him opening the cupboards and being like ??? Darling where are all our plates?? IN THE SINK, ARE YOU BLIND!? Jaime probably just like…….we have a sink?? Brienne facepalms and makes him join her in washing up bc she is putting her foot down. Jaime whinges a lot and insists on wearing enormous yellow rubber gloves. Brienne rolls her eyes some more (but thinks it’s v cute (she has the sense not to tell him that though)) 

  • tries to surprise their partner more often- Definitely Jaime. Brienne isn’t very keen on surprises but he’s….Captain Dramatic and he likes to make a big fuss over her. He does figure out that she’s not to keen on them after a while and so he tones them down a little bit. She gets less dramatic surprise parties and more little surprise bunches of wildflowers and a note telling her he loves her left on the kitchen table for when she comes home. She likes those surprises a lot. 

  • leaves dirty laundry on the floor- Jaime. see the dishes issues for explanation. 

  • stays up til 2 AM reading- Actually I want to say Jaime? It takes him a while to read and damn did he get frustrated when he was younger. but if he finds something he likes now he gets really really absorbed in it and just doesn’t notice the passage of time. This doesn’t happen very often but it has been known to take place. Brienne is a sensible soul and finishes all her reading at an appropriate time, thank you very much. 

  • sings in the shower- omg Brienne. Jaime has never mentioned it to her bc he knows that she’ll get really self-conscious and stop and that’s the last thing he ever wants because it’s the most adorable thing he has EVER heard. 

  • takes the selfies- Fucking Jaime. Every ten seconds he’s got his phone out. He only ever manages to get Brienne to join in if he like…snaps candids of her in the background she will NOT pose for pictures, she HATES THEM. But Jaime thinks she looks so perfect in his candids that he doesn’t mind. 

  • plans date night- Brienne will do it sort of casually but Jaime always plans the big events like anniversaries and birthdays. He really likes spoiling her and showing how much she means to him and Brienne will never admit it but she really loves it too.

I think he believes that somehow they must recognize that the other one cares. I’m sure she knows he cares about her. The fact that she tries to give him back the sword Oathkeeper and he kind of says, “It’s yours. It’s always been yours,”…the subtext is it’s almost like saying, “You keep my heart. It’s yours. It’s always been yours.” - Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
