the lannisters


All of it came pouring out of Brienne then, like black blood from a wound… the voyage down the Trident, dueling Jaime in the woods, the Bloody Mummers, Jaime crying “Sapphires”, Jaime in the tub at Harrenhal with steam rising from his body, the taste of Vargo Hoat’s blood when she bit down on his ear, the bear pit, Jaime leaping down onto the sand, the long ride to King’s Landing, Sansa Stark, the vow she’d sworn to Jaime, the vow she’d sworn to Lady Catelyn, Oathkeeper, Duskendale, Maidenpool, Nimble Dick and Crackclaw and the Whispers, the men she’d killed… “I have to find her,” she finished. “There are others looking, all wanting to capture her and sell her to the queen. I have to find her first. I promised Jaime. Oathkeeper, he named the sword. I have to try to save her… or die in the attempt. - Brienne VI, AFfC

“Not Robert the Second,” Tyrion said. “Aerys the Third.” 

I’d give Jaime a lot more credit for removing the Mad King from power if he hadn’t then taken part in putting another mad king on the Iron Throne.

There’s a limit to how much credit I can give Jaime for saving the people of King’s Landing from Aerys only to inflict this on them:

A thief was brought before him and he had Ser Ilyn chop his hand off, right there in court. Two knights came to him with a dispute about some land, and he decreed that they should duel for it on the morrow. “To the death,” he added. A woman fell to her knees to plead for the head of a man executed as a traitor. She had loved him, she said, and she wanted to see him decently buried. “If you loved a traitor, you must be a traitor too,” Joffrey said. Two gold cloaks dragged her off to the dungeons.

The last case was a plump tavern singer, accused of making a song that ridiculed the late King Robert. Joff commanded them to fetch his woodharp and ordered him to perform the song for the court. The singer wept and swore he would never sing that song again, but the king insisted. It was sort of a funny song, all about Robert fighting with a pig. The pig was the boar who’d killed him, Sansa knew, but in some verses it almost sounded as if he were singing about the queen. When the song was done, Joffrey announced that he’d decided to be merciful. The singer could keep either his fingers or his tongue. 

Only three nights past, another mob had gathered at the gates of the Red Keep, chanting for food. Joff had unleashed a storm of arrows against them, slaying four, and then shouted down that they had his leave to eat their dead.

“I want him!” Joffrey pointed at the roof. “He was up there! Dog, cut through them and bring—”

Joff had the Antler Men trussed up naked in the square below, antlers nailed to their heads. When they’d been brought before the Iron Throne for justice, he had promised to send them to Stannis. A man was not as heavy as a boulder or a cask of burning pitch, and could be thrown a deal farther.

Tyrion’s words above make it explicit: in a beautiful terrible irony, Jaime killed the Mad King only to father him. If you put out a fire only to start your own, who have you saved?

The Spoilers Send Their Regards: Someone Has Leaked The Entire 'Game Of Thrones' Season 7 Plot!

This post is an outline of the 6 biggest mic-drops that are expected to occur in season 7 of Game of Thrones.

So, the biggest pre-Reddit leaks show that the long-absent Gendry has finally stopped his one man tour of the world and meets up with some other Westerosi glitterati. We had long suspected that Jon Snow and Daenerys Stormborn would finally meet, and that is where we pick up the story.

1. When Jonny Met Dany

Topping last season’s meeting of Daenerys and Tyrion, someone else is being recruited to Team Dany as her and Jon form a (originally) uneasy alliance. When the two meet, the King in the North refuses to bend the knee, and Daenerys won't listen to Jon’s tall tales about White Walkers. He decides that the only way to prove the existence of the snowy menace is to bring one home. He creates a Suicide Squad of himself, The Hound, Beric, Thoros, Tormund, Jorah, and Gendry to capture a Wight. Oh, and those who are shipping a romp between the breaker of chains and Westeros’s baddest bastard, they get down and dirty at the end of the season on a romantic boat trip.

2. Ice, Ice, Baby

So, as you expect, Jon’s mission to collect Frosty the Snowman doesn’t go to plan at all. Perhaps one of the best titbits from the post is the actual birth of the long suspected ice dragons. There is a huge battle around an ice-covered lake, Thoros is killed by a Wight polar bear, and Jon nearly dies (again). Daenerys arrives to fly most of the team away on her dragons, but for whatever reason Jon gets left behind. Long lost Benjen turns up to save the day once more, and rescues Jon at the last minute. Saving the best bit for last though. Daenerys’s dragon Viserion dies in the melee, only to be reanimated as the Night’s King’s mount and off they fly.

3. A Bouncing Baby 

But this isn’t all J + D = GoT, expect more incestuous bonking in the towers, as this season we will be revisiting that Lannister sordid sibling sauciness. This time there will be a consensual scene of lovemaking, which leads Cersei to believe that she is pregnant again. She has Qyburn examine her in the hope of breaking Maggy the Frog’s prophecy, but all is not well down below. Towards the end of the season Cersei wakes up in a bed soaked with blood, apparently she miscarries her little Satan spawn.

4. Petyr Get ‘Little’ Fingered

No, it isn’t a gay analogy from one of his brothels, things finally come unstuck for the sickly Petyr Baelish. There will be no marriage to Sansa in the Godswood, although there could well be a beheading in the hallowed Winterfell grounds. With Jon off wooing Daenerys, Sansa is left in charge of family homestead, where she is finally reunited with her spunky sister Arya and crippled brother Bran. Baelish tries to play the two Stark girls off against each other by using the letter that Sansa wrote to Robb about bowing down to Joffrey. Bran helps Sansa figure out Littlefinger’s plan to divide the family, and she sentences Baelish to death. And it’no other than Arya’s job to carry it out, which the bloodthirsty little assassin does with glee.

5. A Boy Has No Name

Samwell Tarly will submit his application to University Challenge after completing his bookworm quest in the Citadel. Not only does he manage to cure Jorah of his Grayscale, but he also meets with Bran “Raven Eyes” Stark. Together the two figure out Jon’s real heritage, and confirm that his name is actually “Aegon Targaryen.” Fans of the books will know that Aegon was that elusive baby Targaryen who reportedly had his bashed against the wall. Aegon apparently did survive and becomes a prominent character in the fifth book, but as there has been no sign of Aegon in the show, presumably Benioff and Weiss are amalgamating the character into Jon’s backstory. It would finally put to rest the whole “what is Jon’s name?” storyline and solidify his and Daenerys’s joint claim to that pointy sword chair.

6. Balls To The Wall

After another season of weddings and beheadings, could the final prophecy finally be fulfilled? Reportedly the final shot of the season will see the icy Viserion taking down the Wall, in a blaze of blue fire, as the Night’s King rides his back. It brings full circle the whole ice and fire theory, meaning that there will two types of dragon going to war in a climactic battle at the end of the saga. If the Wall does fall, it will perfectly set up the whole of Season 8 as an army of White Walkers pour into the north. You know, we have only been waiting seven seasons for that.

Take a moment, have some milk of the poppy, and let all of that sink in. There is some other pretty cool stuff too, it just isn’t as sensationalist:

  • Euron attacks his niece and nephew, capturing Yara, while Theon leaps overboard.
    ⦁ The Mountain cuts down the captured Wight only to see it reanimate itself.
    ⦁ Lady Olenna admits to Joffrey’s murder, then drinks poison in front of Jaime.

The storyline does allude to the whereabouts of the Greyjoys and Brienne, but where the hell are Varys and Melisandre? There is also no sign of Euron attempting to woo Daenerys or Cersei, which we were all sure would happen this season. While it may seem a little light on deaths at the moment, expect to see the demise of the sand snakes and possibly even Yara Greyjoy — fear not, those crypts are sure to be a lot fuller by the season’s end. It isn’t all doom and gloom though, we finally get a full Stark reunion, Jon and Dany seem like the perfect political powerhouse, and most importantly — Nymeria is back!

You've previously expressed belief that Jamie would be the one to kill Cersei. Can you give me, in your eloquence, why you think that makes the most narrative sense to me? I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that theory.

Pretty simple–Maggy’s prophecy says her little brother will kill her, she assumes it’ll be Tyrion, but dramatic irony says it’s going to be Jaime. Hence:

Last night he dreamed he’d found her fucking Moon Boy. He’d killed the fool and smashed his sister’s teeth to splinters with his golden hand, just as Gregor Clegane had done to poor Pia. In his dreams Jaime always had two hands; one was made of gold, but it worked just like the other.


A Wattpad request. I do not own Tyrion Lannister. He belongs to George R.R.Martin.

You were sitting in your chambers when your husband entered. “Hello, my love,” you greeted with a smile as he approached your chair. He leaned in to kiss your cheek and you hummed in content. You and Tyrion were in an arranged marriage, but you were happy. Tyrion was a wonderful husband. He was considerate, caring and supportive. The only negative in your marriage was that you and Tyrion had yet to have a child, something you desperately wanted. You decided to talk to him about it again.
