Jaime Lannister Character Study

Honestly, I think I am maturing with this TV series. No character more than Jaime makes me think this. In the beginning, Jaime was a beautiful baddie. He was a handsome jerk who humped his sister and shoved kids out of windows. A horrible person.

We learned more about him. He was Kingslayer. I think it was an unfair rap that he got against his honor. Everyone thinks he is without honor because he did that~ but wasn’t it actually heroic what he did? Everyone was suffering under the Mad King’s rule. He did something just by saving more people. His moment in the bathtub with Brienne was truly an eye opener for me.

Speaking of his relationship with Brienne, I am highly entertained by it. I ship Jaime and Brienne. (Cersei’s a cunt, I just don’t like her.) Their relationship comes from a place of mutual trust and respect. They are good friends who hold each other in high esteem. The scene in which they meet in that tent was intense. I was laughing at Bronn’s apt description outside the tent.

Good Jaime/Brienne fanfics:

The Higher Education of Brienne of Tarth by BrienneofThrace

Brienne thought misery was supposed to end after high school. And perhaps it would have…if she hadn’t ended up going to the same college as Jaime Goddamn Lannister. A Jaime/Brienne modern-day college AU.

Paradise City by upsgirl88

Reading him in fanfiction more has softened me to his character. I am always interested in the dynamic characters of a show.  He grew emotionally as the series progressed. I find it hard to forget the scene in the sept where he overpowered his sister. That was rape in my opinion. “Why have the gods damned me to love such a cruel woman?”

I am more interested in his current quandary. He swore that he and his forces would join the North. He wants to honor that promise. He sees that everything is at stake- he believes in the White Walkers and agrees with Brienne. This is about more than house loyalties. The greater good is at stake. He must do what is best for the fate of the realm.

I think he is going to defy the crown and jump ship. His forces will be loyal to him and go forth. I predict that Jaime could potentially kill his sister. I believe it will be one of her brothers anyway. If it’s not Jaime, it will be Tyrion. I think there would be a certain justice in Tyrion getting to be the one to end his cruel sister’s life. While I do think Jaime had the potential to do it…. I don’t want to believe that he could. I think maybe his love for her might hold him back. It would be so tragic if that were true.

Cool article about Jaime:

The Duality of the Twin: Two Sides of Jaime Lannister

Another reason I started reading more Jaime fanfiction was because of this story:

Love On The Brain by ashleyfanfic (better described by tags than summary)

#Jon Snow/Daenerys Targaryen #Arya Stark/Gendry Waters #Jaime Lannister/Sansa Stark #Tormund Giantsbane/Brienne of Tarth #Meera Reed/Bran Stark #Incest #battles #Love #Sex #War #Night King #Loss #Hope #dragon fights #Pregnancy #Forbidden Love

 

 

 

I don’t like to ship Sansa with everybody, but in this story they are thrown together. I was surprised at how I felt about the pairing. Definitely prefer Brienne/Jaime. I also like Tormund/Brienne. But I think that if Brienne could choose between the two herself, she would pick Jaime.

Not Another GOT post

#yeahitis #getusedtoit #gameofthrones #youwinoryoudie

The worst thing I can do when my husband and I are fighting is to read some Sansan fanfiction from Game of Thrones LOL I love SansaxSandor, that shit is almost canon. I particularly enjoy Modern Era stories of these two where they could hypothetically wind up together legitimately. Some of my favorites;

  1. Wait For Me
  2. Titanic Fic
  3. The Right Number
  4. To Steel
  5. Misconceptions

I have learned to read other Sansa pairings. I originally started off in the fandom shipping SansaxPetyr the most. Over time I started to feel the creepiness of it though and moved away from it.

I like Arya/Gendry fics. I have read both Brienne/Tormund and Brienne/Jamie stories. I am torn between the two. Been reading more of BriennexJamie lately. I am doing a character study on him actually but that is for another time.

I am interested in reading other stories. I have never been a big fan of Danaeryus/Jon in particular but one fic did get my interest piqued.

story

It features a Sansa/Jamie relationship aspect that I had not yet entertained. I both love and hate that you can pair Sansa with just about anyone if you put your mind to it. I’ve read a very good immersive tale of Sansa/Tyrion and also Sansa/Stannis. They are featured below;

A Shadow and a Wolf by Gracques
Tyrion Lannister weds Sansa Stark and everything goes as it happened in the show. However, just before Joffrey’s wedding, an unexpected event changes everything. The forced husband and wife will have to go beyond their family loyalties in order to survive and hope to win the game of thrones.

An Inconvenient King

I am interested in reading a more believable version of Sansa/Jamie. Couples I’m not terribly fond of;

SansaxJon *shrug* idk

But I am interested in a version of AryaxJon

Missing Game of Thrones Already

I can’t wait for the new season of Game of Thrones to come out. I was, of course, devastated when it was announced we won’t see the new season until 2019. In the mean time, I entertain myself with important things like musings about couples and my favorite characters 🙂 I pass the time reading fanfiction and re-watching episodes and favorite scenes. I’m here to share some of my favorites with you! ^_^

Top 3 Female Leads

Brienne- I adore Brienne because of her sense of good character. She values integrity and loyalty. She marches to the beat of her own drum. Her dedication goes beyond the grave. She lives to protect and serve. I kind of think of her as slightly matronly, honestly, when it comes to her two wards. She would do anything for them, sacrifice all for them. They are her sole focus and her determination and resolve are admirable. Her strength is stellar!!! I must have watched her defeat of the Hound a million times, I tell you what!

Dany- I have loved Daenerys since the moment she learned to tame Khal Drogo. Such a clever young woman. She is compassionate and kind, a benevolent leader in all ways. I love her power plays. She single handedly managed to assemble such a well rounded council to help her on her way to the Throne. Watching her finally cross the sea to Westeros was exciting, and the payoff on the scene with the Loot Train was just SPECTACULAR. She’s so brave and smart. Her speeches are motivating and I would have gladly accepted her as my Queen.

I could rewatch her scenes for hours, but some of my favorites are;

  1. Killing All the Khals & Walking out of the Flames
  2. Her escape on the back of Drogo
  3. the sacking of Astapor and stealing the Unsullied

Arya- Liam Cunngingham has expressed doubts about young girls who regard Arya as a role model. He says she’s a serial killer. That may be so, but has Arya killed anyone who didn’t deserve it? Even when she killed all the Freys, she spared the women. I don’t think it’s fair to say she’s a sociopath or whatever. She has a strong sense of justice and knows the cardinal rule; The North Remembers. She’s more of a kick ass vigilante in my book. An assassin with a conscious. Her moments with the Hound were some of my favorite scenes. Arya is admirable because she’s not afraid to stand alone. Be strong, defend herself, and claim vengeance for her family.

Honorable Mentions;

Margarey & Olenna

Because she is a bad ass. I also admired Margarey because she was good at manipulation as well. She seemed pretty open minded, too. Very clever.

Top 3 Male Leads

Littlefinger- A villain you love to hate. I had to admire his cunning. He was a master mind of manipulation. Such a useful skill, and it made him very titillating to watch. What would he do next? He is borderline creepy to me, but I also see his appeal at times. I’m both repelled and drawn in by the character. Good acting. One of my favorite scenes is when he kisses Sansa and the aftermath of that decision. Pushing Lysa out the moon door, and then Sansa covering for him. He turns into a dick of course *rolls eyes* Go figure.

Image result for tormund

Tormund- He has proven to be one of my favorite male leads! I like his loyalty to Jon and how his people love him and will follow him anywhere. Of course his infatuation with Brienne is making him all the more endearing. I was screaming at the TV when I thought the walkers had him, before Sandor got to him. I was on the edge of my friggin’ seat. I don’t want to lose this character.

Image result for tyrion quotes

Tyrion- I have enjoyed his wit. Waiting with baited breath for the ending of the honeycomb joke. I was a big fan of him during the time he went to act as the Hand on his father’s behest. I loved him from the moment he slapped his crappy nephew around. He and Cersei are some of the only people to do what we wished we could do lol Brutalize that little bastard haha I thought his wholesome treatment of Sansa during their forced marriage spoke volumes about his character. He didn’t deserve what happened with Shae. I have lost interest in his character now that he is on Dany’s side, but I still admit I admire his strategic mind. Not to mention his friends, Bronn & Podrick.

Go to your happy place

I live at the X-Men mansion. Have the power to travel interdimensionally and experience others worlds, or copy elements in their current habitat and encourage others to see and hear things that are not physically present.

People That Live with me in the Mansion:

Carol & Daryl from The Walking DeadThese two are a dynamite duo!! They are the main security of the mansion because ain’t no shit getting past these two! I love how bad ass they are both together and apart as individuals. Carol is genuinely a role model of mine, at least from the TV series. (Have not read the comic, aspire to)

Image result for april and andy

Andy and April from Parks and Recreation, I dig both of these two hardcore. Andy is my spirit animal. I would love to hang out with both of them, because of his entertainment value and her dry wit. Her dark sense of humor would jive with the rest of the group.

Lorraine Broughton and Delphi Lasalle from Atomic BlondeBecause Lorraine would strike down my enemies out in the field secretly. I value her cunning intelligence, resourcefulness, and strength. And Delphi because I need lesbians in my life =P

Image result for brienne of tarth

Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones, Also for security. I value her undying loyalty and strength. She is a true individual who marches to the beat of her own drum. She is independent and determined. 

Image result for ghost world

Enid from Ghost World, Her sense of adventure and art makes her valuable. We would get along great. She is super nerdy, too. A little lost inside and mentally scattered, as we deep types are wont to do. I identify with her, especially seeing an older man. (Also, she’s undeniably sexy.)

Image result for adult wednesday addams

Adult Wednesday AdamsThis web series was like eureka!! She is such an identifiable character as well. She’s independent and outspoken. Intelligent and insulting, cunning and deep. I like her dark sense of humor as well.

Raven from Teen TitansI admire her degree of mental control. I wish to attain the level of zen she is able to achieve through meditation. I like her dark spells and the concept of all her personalities being my friend would be fun, as if they were all running around the mansion. She also enjoys poetry and study so we would click.

Alex Vause from Orange is the New Black, I have the hugest crush on her. Her lewd sense of humor and capacity for fucking up is something I can relate to unfortunately. Plus more lesbians, we discussed this.

Khal Drogo and Danaeryus Stormborn from Game of Thrones, They are both very sexy and driven individuals. They were a beautiful team and it would please me muchly if the Khaleesi were to share her Khal with me *wiggles eyebrows*

Louis Huang, He is the sweetest and nicest guy around. Any girl would be lucky to have him. One of the moments I remember most about him is that Jessica his wife said, “You really want me to have the things I want. I’m never going to get mad at you for that.” ❤ Be still my heart.
