my partner tried to call me a sweetheart the other day but he misspelled it and I read it as “sweetbeard” and then I decided that this is what dwarf couples call each other
so, naturally, here are two dwarves on a date

Imagine spending all your time going up and down your best python friend.
I saw a comment on a discussion board recently saying that the “things I do for love” line proves that, proves what a corrupting influence Cersei is for Jaime.
Because no. Let me tell you about the “things I do for love” line and let me tell you about Jaime Lannister. Jaime Lannister is a knight and one of the ruling tenets of knighthood is courtly love. Courtly love essentially is the “things [one] does for love”. Now, for most knights, this means stuff like strapping a lady’s favour onto your chest or winning a tourney or slaying a dragon. The fact that Jaime takes the chivalric gesture of “the things I do for love” and shows how hollow it is by tossing a child out of a window is brilliant, because it proves from the get-go that Jaime Lannister is the perfect deconstruction of the knightly archetype. “Courtly love” originates from the idea that the greater extremes a knight is willing to go to for his lady, the greater his love is and GRRM manages to subvert that beautifully with this one example, because Jaime Lannister proves his love by committing random acts of defenestration. “The things I do for love” scene basically proves that Jaime is a monster masquerading as a hero and that’s all we’re supposed to take it as, we’re not supposed to look at the situation and find bizarre ways of blaming it on Cersei.
I have no idea how fandom goes around calling Sansa “dumb” for romanticising the knights and then turns around and pretends that Jaime is one of the “good guys” in these books. Look, fandom, even Sansa who so many of you think is so stoopid knows Jaime Lannister’s true colours from like book two. And yet here you are, deluding yourself that Jaime has only ever behaved villainously for the sake of his sister. It’s not true, okay? And it’s boring. And it doesn’t do justice to the fact that Jaime’s narrative is actually one of the most fascinating and complex of the books.
