I have a lot of messages regarding the sept scene, do you mind if I answer them on askwhywelovethelannisters :D?

1861. Because as much as Cersei has done bad things, she’s beautiful, smart and just wanted the best for her family.

If the show had retained some of Cersei’s dialogue from the books, it might have left a somewhat different impression — but that dialogue was very much shaped by the circumstances of the books, delivered by a woman who is seeing her lover again for the first time after a long while apart during which she feared he was dead. I am not sure it would have worked with the new timeline. x

George RR Martin’s response regarding the Jaime/Cersei scene 

1. I don’t buy your bullshit.

2. “Hurry,” she was whispering now, “quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime.” Her hands helped guide him. “Yes,” Cersei said as he thrust, “my brother, sweet brother, yes, like that, yes, I have you, you’re home now, you’re home now, you’re home.”

This was all they had to do to adapt the scene to the show timeline and not ruin everything. That’s it. 

1860. Because they inspire complex emotions. They remind you there is no such thing as good or bad.

Cersei Lannister in “The Lion and the Rose”

No, but seriously : even if you are in a relationship with someone, they still need your consent if they want to have sex with you. There is such a thing as marital rape. Consenting to 1000 times before doesn’t mean you automatically consent to the 1001st. And I seriously need to remind you that episode 1 Cersei pretty much broke up with Jaime. Yes, her ” you took too long” and “everything changed” was her dumping Jaime, so please please stop excusing the scene as ” they are in a fucked up relationship anyway, it’s not rape”.

OK, but if you haven’t read A Storm of Swords/ seen season 4 yet, remember to blacklist :

ASOS

ASOS SPOILERS

A STORM OF SWORDS

A STORM OF SWORDS SPOILERS

GAME OF THRONES SEASON 4

TWO SWORDS

THE LION AND THE ROSE

BREAKER OF CHAINS

The list will be updated, and I will try to do it every Sunday :D

I can't believe the show went there with Cersei and Jaime and of course non book readers and Cersei haters don't care or finding ways to make it her fault. Why did they do this?!

Book readers and Cersei haters should care, because well, Jaime, who is quite a fan favourite, is now a rapist. I doubt the Jaime/Brienne shippers want Brienne to be in love with a man who saved her from rapists, and then raped his sister.

AND WHY THE HELL WOULD ANYONE BLAME CERSEI? WHY WOULD YOU BLAME CERSEI, SHE IS THE EFFING VICTIM HERE, WTF. SHOW THEM TO ME AND I SHALL UNLEASH THE FURY OF CASTERLY ROCK ON THEM!!!!!!!

So I couldn't help but notice your most recent submission was not tagged as a spoiler. I'm a little sad about this because I love and trust this blog, but these things happen.

I’m sorry, I did announce that reasons and the posts regarding the new season will be tagged with the episode title and “game of thrones season 4”, so people can blacklist. I’m still tagging the reasons regarding things that haven’t happened in the show yet with book titles.

1858. Because of Lena’s acting when Joffrey died.

Okay I want to talk about this for a second, because while I’m not here to disparage the submitter or OP, I do think this scene needs to be talked about. Cersei’s whole life is built around her children, especially Joffrey, and in the books her grief is apparent immediately, even from Tyrion’s perspective. But all I saw from Lena was rage, part of what was critical to the scene, but not the core of it. Honestly I was really disappointed with the way the scene was done, and wish it had been more powerful. I expected to hurt on Cersei’s behalf, but all we saw was more of her malice.

Agreed. In the books, Cersei’s scream when it was done gave me chills, and we need to remember it took two guards to make her release Joffrey’s body. Lena wasn’t as good as usual during the grief part of the scene, although she rocked raging Cersei. Michelle Fairley was  more impressive in Rains of Castamere,imo. But Lena was great during Breaker of Chains, before the scene-that-shall-not-be-named,  that is the grief I wanted to see in at the wedding. Perhaps she decided to play the “vulnerable only in front of Jaime” card.

SEASONS OF D&D WOOBIFYING JAIME LANNISTER - MAKING HIM KINDER, MAKING HIM CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN HE HAD WITH CERSEI, GIVING HIM SCENES THAT HINT AT REDEMPTION - AND THIS ALL CUMULATES IN THEM TAKING THE ONE THING THAT IS PURE ABOUT JAIME LANNISTER, THE ONE HONOR HE HAS, HOW MUCH HE LOVES CERSEI LANNISTER AND NO ONE ELSE, AND THEY FUCKING DESTROY IT WITH A NON CANON RAPE SCENE

D& D  are HYDRA and no one can convince me otherwise.

Block “sept scene” if you don’t want to read about all the complaining I’m going to do on this blog until someone gives me a Xanax.
