I want you to see this place for what it really is. I want you to feel what i’m feeling. You said that you were lost. I was alone too, and when I had nothing left, she found me. She called to me and she lead me here. You said that your life was upside down? Well maybe this is where you’re really supposed to be.
Let’s play a game.
Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.
The poison. The poison for Kuzco, the poison chosen especially to kill Kuzco, Kuzco’s poison. That poison?
i’ve seen a lot of angry posts on my dash about the implications of tonight’s episode on jaime’s character development (or, now, apparent lack thereof) and i’m 100% behind them. i adore jaime lannister with my heart and soul and the altar scene disgusted me.
something i’m not seeing discussed, which needs to be addressed, is d&d’s complete, repeated lack of respect for female agency. cersei clearly and definitively said “yes” to jaime in the books; it was one of the things that made the scene stand out in the wake of joffrey’s death when i read asos.
but in “breaker of chains,” cersei never gets to say yes. and that’s what makes everything so disgusting.
this scene is supposed to be empowering for her. instead, d&d took away her agency and stripped her down, made her a victim (as if watching her son die a horrible death wasn’t victimization enough).
i’m mad for jaime, yes. i’m mad for the incredible journey that he went on in terms of his character arc last season, and all the ways he’s grown.
but i’m a hell of a lot madder for cersei.
