You’re blessed with abilities that few men possess. You’re blessed to belong to one of the most powerful families in the kingdoms and you’re still blessed with youth. What have you done with these blessings? You served as a glorified bodyguard for two kings - one a mad man, one a drunk.
ah yes the man who throws seven year olds out of windows and endeavors to throw babies out of trebuchets and thinks a silent cersei would be sweet but I’d miss her tongue when we kissed
the man who murders a woman for being a whore and participated in the gang rape of his wife and consistently thinks about violent and horrible ways to murder and kill his sister
essentially decent people
in spite of everything
So I’ve come to the conclusion that Jaime is capable of being a decent human being as long as he is away from Cersei.

∟ 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.
We came into this world together. We belong together.

Jaime Lannister: And I seem to have prevented yours.

displaying some excellent parenting skills there, sweetheart.
#PARENTING WITH THE LANNISTERS #so jaime got to be tommen’s master in arms? #after that illustrious chat he had with cersei while she was on the bath #that fact that his hand is not visible in the last picture is making me weep #leave me alone to die
