Fanart for Game of Thrones!
Now, she told herself, I must do it now. Gods give me courage. She took one step, then another. Lords and knights stepped aside silently to let her pass, and she felt the weight of their eyes on her. I must be as strong as my lady mother.
The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s King by placing it under threat of capture which cannot be avoided.
Okay I like this… but the castle piece is called “Rook” not “Rock”
Every night Arya would say their names.
“The Lannisters are cold hearted and cruel. What they did to Mycah was disgusting and unjustified.”
i was under the impression that mycah was more a consequence of, you know
sandor clegane flying off the goddamn homicidal handle and killing a boy because he ran
i could be misremembering but i don’t remember the lannisters’ orders having anything to do with it?????

∟ they’re just the kind of rings that allow three dysfunctional people to turn into oneThe first time is accidental, and unfortunately public, when Tyrion reaches across the table and spills chardonnay across the front of Cersei’s dress. Tywin, at the podium, keeps on talking, and a hundred or so guests keep on listening, and when Jaime drags the two of them out into the hall, no one but Cersei is making much of a fuss.
But there is a jolt like a gun shot, without the noise, and for a split second Jaime is absolutely alone. Except then he’s not. He can feel Cersei’s anger, complete, bubbling rage burning his heart and stomach to a crisp. His dinner threatens to come up on him. And his mind is trying to panic, and his hands are trying to rip into his own chest and pull her out, but there’s this cool, calm rhythm in his head like nothing he has ever experienced, and it is slowly pulling him back together.
So Jaime stands there, in the hallway outside the grand ballroom at his father’s fundraiser, and bears the brunt of his sister’s ferocity inside him as the bits of Tyrion inside his head carefully tell him what to do.
Your mother’s dead, before long I’ll be dead, and you, and your brother, and your sister and all of her children. All of us dead, all of us rotting in the ground. It’s the family name that lives on. That’s all that lives on. Not your personal glory, not your honor, but family.
