Welcome to my blog! It’s nice to see you here :)
I highly value kindness, intelligence and bravery. I live a Sansa Stark and Tyrion Lannister appreciation life. 99% of the time I post and reblog A Song of Ice and Fire related things.
I like discussions and I am interested in other people’s thoughts. I’ll always treat your opinion with respect, even if I disagree. But if you’re being mean and offensive I’d rather ignore you. If you hate Sansa or Tyrion and you don't accept arguments in their defense, this blog is not your place.
Sansa/Tyrion is my otp and I’ll go down with this ship. If they are not the endgame I’ll die :D
You can always ask me anything. Sometimes I answer really slow, so I'm really sorry in advance. If I don't answer for more than a week though, you should absolutely write me again. Thank you for the understanding!
It seems like a nice idea, but I don’t the producers will do that. The fans would be raging if it happens. I think most fans, including me, really love Sansa’s chapters in the Eyrie. And unlike me, those fans would be really mad if that storyline gets cut off in favor of more time for Sansa/Tyrion.
But I still think there is SOME chance for that to happen. Like, 1% chance, but still. The producers sometimes mix up storylines in order to use the characters they already have instead of introducing some new ones. They totally skipped Dontos and used Petyr instead. They skipped Willas Tyrell and used Loras. They skipped Edric and used Gendry. If Sansa and Tyrion run away together in the show, the producers could still save some part of their narratives. Sansa will still be taking lessons from an older man who plays the game well, but this man would be Tyrion. And they could use Sansa as the innocent young girl around Tyrion instead of introducing Penny.
But it’s highly unlikely they’ll change that much of the story.
Well they ARE both victims. I agree that making Sansa kneel was the wrong decision and that her plight is considerably worse than Tyrion’s at this point,.. but that doesn’t mean the whole situation doesn’t genuinely suck for Tyrion too.
Gosh loving both Tyrion and Sansa is so tiring. I promise myself I wouldn’t get involved in any of this.
No Tyrion shouldn’t be heroised for being a decent person re: Sansa nor should she be vilified for not being into him or ANYTHING AT ALL.but ah I just can’t be arse, so little hope of getting a nuanced or fair take on characters in this fandom.
When people are complaining about Sansa kneeling it’s hurting me. It’s actually hurting me.
Did she kneel in the books? Well, not at first. She wanted to show the Lannisters that she is above them, that they don’t have her consent. BUT (and it’s a pretty important but) she turned around. And she saw Tyrion’s face. She saw all the misery and shame on that face. And she realized that her protest wasn’t directed at the right person. She felt ashamed of making him go through this, she felt sorry for him. And she KNELT TO KISS HIM.
Because that’s who Sansa is. Her captors could not make her kneel, but she would always kneel out of sympathy, to make someone’s life a little bit better. And this is what’s really important about her. And that’s why I think she’s a better person than many of the people who “defend” her. Because for Sansa it’s kindness and sympathy above all else.
Hmmmm, that is actually a very interesting interpretation of “My watch beings” and I have to say I really like it! :)
If you don’t consider it as a joke, but as a sign for Tyrion’s loyalty it doesn’t sound bad at all. I would very much like to see him guarding her and being her protector. And although I didn’t love the wedding ceremony, I believe the show made their marriage even more important by giving the storyline such a long prologue. I really want to see how the writers will handle what happens next :)
Ugh… that picture is too sweet! :)))
I actually don’t imagine that… Not because it wouldn’t be great, but because I don’t want to get my hopes up. While I do believe that Sansa and Tyrion are an endgame, I just fear that GRRM could always do something horrible to them… Like reunite them, give them one happy day and then kill Tyrion off in the next chapter.
But when we’re talking names… I’d actually like if at least one of the children has a Lannister name. Not Tywin, obviously, but maybe Joanna. It would be sweet to see those two Houses finally at peace, having mutual grandchildren with both Stark and Lannister names :)
So, the wedding, finally. Yet I am somehow disappointed with some of the things and they way they were handled…
Like, everything else in the episode was okay. Arya and Sandor were wonderful, Gilly and Sam were cute and funny, and of course those generous shots of Gendry and Melisandre were good, combined with all the weird things… (well, actually some part of that scene looked too much like a soft porn and I wasn’t really a fan of that, but it’s HBO and it’s the second half of season 3, so I should be used to that). And okay, I did feel Stannis was a bit out of character. He wouldn’t free Davos in order to prevent the killing of an innocent young man, he would have prevented it himself. In the books he defended Edric Storm, I don’t see why he wouldn’t do the same about Gendry and why would he trash-talk his mother.
Dany was wonderful, but somehow I didn’t like Daario. I don’t think the actor was really talented and I don’t get how he would enter her camp unseen just to show her the heads… Still, when she said she was only a young girl and they were seasoned men my heart just melted :)
And so… the wedding.
I thought it was… like… too funny? I mean, drunken Tyrion making drunken faces was alright, but it’s not the emotional tone I loved so much in the books. GRRM wrote it really different, he made it dark, it was reeking of misery and sadness and I loved that about it and it was all gone. Although my favorite lines from the book were skipped. Dear “In the dark, I am the Knight of Flowers”, I needed to hear you SO bad… :/ Also, as I said, the humor didn’t really work for me. GRRM uses humor as well, but it’s dark and not really humorous at all. Like, when Sansa tells Tyrion that she could never want him, on the show he replies “And now my Watch begins.” which is just funny. In the books he replied “That is why the gods made whores for imps like me”, which could be taken as funny for about a second, but is actually pretty sad.
So… I really had bigger hopes for those scenes, but I still liked some stuff, like the scenes in the sept where shot wonderfully.
