Tada! In honor of the fact that I’m almost done with the first ASOIAF book, I have made picrews of a bunch of characters (based on book descriptions! only). Most are from the first book but I added in some extras that I know about from the tv show and from reading spoiler excerpts. My favorite characters also have hearts on them!
The background colors all correspond with the house colors of each person (except for Varys and Bronn, who as of where I am in the books do not have noble house affiliations)
Yellow: Tyrells, not including Mace or Margaery and Loras’s brothers (Loras, Margaery, Olenna)
Blue: Daenerys Targaryen
Red: Lannisters (Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, Tywin, also Joffery is supposed to look like a girl so that’s who that last person is; yes I’m counting him and his siblings as Lannisters but I didn’t feel like doing his siblings)
Black with white circle (I know it’s supposed to be yellow but literally everyone has the same house colors help): Baratheon (Robert, Renly, Stannis, plus Gendry and Shireen)
Miscellaneous: Brienne of Tarth, Petyr Baelish/Littlefinger, Varys, Bronn, Theon and Asha Greyjoy, Sandor Clegane/The Hound, Jorah Mormont, Samwell Tarly
Also, because I don’t think you can see the lil signature on each picture very well, I’m crediting the person who made it below! go check out their picrew and social media accounts they have tagged in it!
(I hope fanart of sorts counts as non commercial, my bad if it doesn’t, I’ll delete this)
I had forgotten what utter masterpieces tyrion’s chapters were.
Also, the way he feels bitter and helpless after disposing off slynt and allar deem, because, he knows, he’s only fooling himself, and the real monster is his own sister, but there’s nothing, not one thing, he can do about her. he may fancy himself just, cleaning after her while cersei continues leaving behind her trail of blood.
Fandom: Game of Thrones (TV); A Song of Ice and Fire - George R. R. Martin
Relationships: Jon Snow/Daenerys Targaryen
Summary: “He is their catspaw because above all things he is an honorable man. And in his entire life, he has never wanted to be anything other than that damnable virtue as much as he wants it now.“
Neither prophecy nor love nor honor is ever written in stone—and yet, all are inexplicably difficult to run away from.
Or: Jon doesn’t kill Daenerys and everything they know about the Long Night changes. [Season 8 fix-it AU]
in today’s episode of toxic lannister apologism, i will like to talk about tyrion and the “but, look how he lusted after sansa, what a pervert!”
he was attracted to sansa which is, i admit, deeply unsettling, because, sansa is literally thirteen years old, but did he pull a jorah mormont on her? ever? did he go full little finger on her? he did not. he took tywin’s pressure, but he never ever acted on his desire. george did not give him lines like, “you are too young// a child for us to call him a peadophile. and, this behaviour does not put tyrion on any golden pedestal, because it is the bare minimum of decency, the lowest bar of morality, but let’s atleast not take that from him? the basic humanity he practiced?
and, tyrion is a disgusting rapist, but, not until aDwD. he has an incredibly well-written corruption arc, because he was good enough to have a margin for it.
If you could have all the lannister siblings reunited in a last scene how would you like it to go down?
I've always thought that we're past the point where all the siblings reunite, since I think Cersei will likely die before seeing Tyrion again. It fits with the dramatic irony: her paranoia over everything being his fault combined with him never actually interacting with her again.
If they did reunite, I can't imagine the situation being anything less than chaotic. Tyrion left on bad terms with both his siblings, killing their father; Jaime is the one who let him out and feels a combination of guilt and anger over it; Cersei now feels particularly justified in her nearly life-long hatred of Tyrion; Jaime has tried to cut Cersei out of his life and still has violent thoughts towards her; and finally, even if Jaime and Tyrion hesitated woth each other (which they well might), Cersei is on a short fuse with everyone. Them reuniting would end in escalated violence, no matter the circumstances.
that one(1) scene tyrion and cersei share in the beginning of acok, when he just arrives, it makes me want to stand up and clap for george. clap, clap, clap. because, how in those few lines, he effectively and wholly summed up the entire cersei/tyrion dynamic, fucked up and painful, as it is, with only the smallest hope of something better.
the way it begins with one trying to dominate the other, tyrion forcing his way into the coucil meeting, the grudging admission on cersei’s part, tyrion taking her hand, her letting him, jaime’s name softening them both, a great deal of sly manipulation, them being essentially on the same team, whether they like it or not, hesitantly trusting, the violence of the entire thing, it’s TOO GOOD.
