A queen is not afraid to fail.
“When we were young, Jaime and I, we looked so much alike. Even our father couldn’t tell us apart. I could never understand why they treated us differently. Jaime was taught to fight with sword and lance and mace, and I was taught to smile and sing and please. He was heir to Casterly Rock and I was sold to some stranger like a horse to be ridden whenever he desired.”
“You were Robert’s queen.”
“And you will be Joffrey’s. Enjoy.”
lololol. Okay the end scene from tyrion’s speech to papa lannister.
FIRST OF ALL, LET ME SAY IT AGAIN: MY. FEELS! now onwards with it, TYRION’S SPEECH WAS THE BEST, BLESS. he knows these men, they won’t fight for their king. because joffrey is cruel and weak and he lacks honour. joffrey is the scum of the earth and the only reason they support his claim is because they are being paid to do so or are under tywin’s command. gold cloaks, red cloaks, same difference lbr. not even the kingsguard cares for him (FUCK THE KING! GO SANDOR!), so he doesn’t use that as an excuse for them to fight. he goes where it matters. don’t defend the city for the king, do it for yourselves. for your homes, and your gold and your women, because that’s what stannis is going to take from you. IT WAS PERFECTION OK, TYRION FOR ALL THE AWARDS. plus peter dinklage portraying him helps BUT OH MY GOD. THAT SCENE GAVE ME CHILLS.
and then they go into battle and they fight. they fight even when tyrion is like ‘fuck me’ because the rest of stannis’ fleet is coming their way. they fight to defend their city. AND IT’S BRILLIANT!!! (i’ll make a different post for sansa at some point because just, FAVOURITE)
AND CERSEI’S SPEECH WAS AWESOME EVEN THOUGH I DON’T LIKE HER SHE’S STILL A GR8 CHARACTER AND SHE IS DOING HER POWER PLAY OK BECAUSE SHE WILL DIE BEFORE SHE LET’S WHAT HAPPENED TO ELIA HAPPEN TO HER AND HER KIDS AND KSJDS. i mean we got myrcella who is in dorne and dorne will support whoever is at the top lbr, and if they fall, myrcella does too. and then there’s joffrey who she has no idea where he is so all she’s left with is tommen and SHE WILL BE DAMNED IF EITHER OF THEM IS GOING TO BE ALIVE WHEN STANNIS TAKES THE CITY.
THEN WE HAD LORAS IS RENLY’S ARMOUR WHICH JUST SLAYED ME OK. that paired with sansa’s little “joffrey will come back. the bad ones always do.” or whatever and THE FORESHADOWING BECAUSE RENLY (spoiler for the rest of book 2 and 3) AND ROBB!!! and admittedly joff ends up dead eventually but NOT THE POINT RIGHT NOW
(/spoiler) AND JESUS CHRIST WHEN LORAS SHOWS UP HE JUST LOOKS SO TERRIBLY EMPTY AND HE LACKS PURPOSE BECAUSE HE WAS THERE AND HE WAS FIGHTING BUT HE DIDN’T GET TO STANNIS AND WHAT IS THE POINT THEN??? BABY!!! idk man i just love loras so much.
AND KSJDS STAAAAAANNIS BEING DRAGGED AWAY BECAUSE HE WILL BREAK BEFORE HE BENDS, JUST, ALL THE FEELINGS OF THE WORLD. I DIDN’T EVEN LIKE HIM IN THE BOOKS BUT A++++. and idk man i don’t care much for tywin so whatever. BUT ALSO TYRION BABY YOU FOUGHT!!! RIGHT IN THE FEELS OK he may be a lannister but he is smart and he is brave and even though he hates his nephew, he will stand by his family no matter how many times they’ve shunned him in the past because he is a lannister and a lannister always pays his debt and he just feels so in debt to them because his fault or not, his birth took their mother away and
Permit me to share some womanly wisdom with you on this very special day.
“Queen you shall be … until there comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear.”
“Don’t look at me, not… not like this… not you.”
‘Sansa will do her duty, won’t you, little dove?’
