”Your Grace, if you are dead —”
"— you will avenge my death, and seat my daughter on the Iron Throne. Or die in the attempt."
i can barely think about the scenes that i actually liked in that game of thrones ep b/c i’m so fucking mad about that altar scene bullshit
podrick payne more like podrick PAIN haha
Now that I’ve had a few minutes to digest that scene…
I’m actually really, really angry.
It’s not just because Jaime is my favorite character, but because Jaime is (per the books) one of the few men in this series who respects women.
Jaime, who wanted to protect Rhaella from Aerys.
Jaime, who actually grasps that rape is a terrible, terrible thing (“If I were a woman, I’d make them kill me,” he said to Brienne, a line that was included in the show).
Jaime, who actually left when Cersei asked him to leave (even though he “travelled a thousand leagues to get to [her] and lost the best part of [himself] along the way”).
Jaime, who is very intentionally not a rapist because he is supposed to be the archetypical knight in shining armor who believes in chivalry and old-fashioned romance and protecting highborn ladies.
jaime lannister is a man who was deeply disturbed and disgusted by the fact that he had to stand by as aerys targaryen abused and molested and raped his wife and couldn’t do anything about it since aerys was the king and jaime was sworn to protect him
he would never rape anyone especially his sister oh my god
If you think Jaime would ever rape Cersei, you can just go fall off a fucking cliff.
thanks for ruining one of my fave characters~~~~~
thanks for taking away another character’s agency when she had it in the source material~~~~~
thanks so much~~~~~
