Request: Tyrion imagine? i dont care i just love you, tyrion and this blog
A/N: Thank you my darling. I hope you enjoy
You walked in the book room of the castle. You had been told by your Lady to fetch a book. It was a random book and you were utterly overwhelmed by how big this library was.
You noticed a man sitting and reading a book. You approached him, “Hello, Would you mind helping me find a book?” You asked then truly looked at him. You noticed his scar that ran along his whole face.
“Oh I’m so sorry Lord Tyrion. I didn’t mean to disturb you.” You flushed a deep red and turned your back.
“Girl.” He called after you; you turned to face him and your punishment. “It would be no trouble at all. In fact it was quitter refreshing that you didn’t recognize me.”
You sighed of relief and then smiled; you told him the title. “I know exactly where to find that. Now what’s your name?” He asked.
“Y/N. I am a handmaiden.” You explained about the lady you served and why she needed the odd book.
“I love books. I wish I could just sit and read and learn all day.” You explained, letting your eyes wander around the large room.
“I think I could make that happen.” He smiled. You hadn’t been serious; it had always just been a fantasy.
“My lord, that is too kind, but I send money back to my home.” You barely made enough as it was.
“I would make sure you were well paid. You deserve to be happy. People aren’t always lucky to have the joy of reading.” He simply said.
I saw an interview where Peter Dinklage said that "dwarves" on TV are usually freaks and very briefly seen side characters in for example pirate movies, not fully fledged characters. It sometimes makes me sad to think that Tyrion Lannister, a main character with real motivation, story arc and aspirations is a character that Dinklage would have needed to see on TV growing up :( (also what is the correct way to refer to a really short person like Dinklage is?)
I know. I’ve thought about this before too - and honestly, I think this is why it upsets me so much when people disregard Tyrion’s character. You don’t see characters like Tyrion - positive representations of disability in the media are difficult to find, and Tyrion is a very visibly disabled character who shines in his own right. He’s complex and multi-layered and neither entirely ‘good’ or 'bad.' He’s just very human - and any such character should be appreciated, but especially Tyrion who adds visbility to a cause that gets very little.
As for your question, the commonly accepted term is 'little person,’ and that’s what I normally use, but of course the best course of action would be to allow the person in question to tell you how they choose to refer to themself.
He's got so used to the heat that when they go to the North, in Winterfell, he cannot bare the extreme cold, but Sansa always missed it. In their room, while she reads a book covered with a mantle, and not even wine can warm him up, he tucks himself under her mantle. She looks at him and he says "I was cold and it looked pretty warm", so she laughs and puts an arm around him, still holding the book, and they both start reading together.
I have a lot of feelings about Tyrion being unable to get used to the cold while Sansa kind of relishes it and teases him about how wimpy he is, so I really loved this one! <3
