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!
Thank you so much! :)))
I know what you mean - people laughed at me for shipping the couple too. My friends in the uni, who were not really crazy about shipping in general, would always tell me something like “Why do you want your favorite pretty girl with Tyrion? Why not someone handsome, maybe Jaime?”. I hoped people on tumblr would be different, but at it wasn’t the case… at first. I think my blog was quite the joke in the asoiaf tumblr community. But people learned to love and respect the ship, eventually. It took some time, but it happened :)
I think this couple is really, really special. Because at first it looks illogical, but once you start to really think about it with an open mind, you realize this is the perfect fit for both of the characters…
So, thank you!
This has been a topic of much and more discussions in the fandom.
I wish I could give you a clean-cut answer, dear anon. I wish I could give you a simple yes or no to your question. The answer is neither. Or both. I’ll give you the facts and you’ll decide, alright?
So, Tyrion was 13 when he secretly married Tysha, a common girl. 13 years old – not much older than Sansa was when she married him. He loved Tysha with the passion of a 13-year old boy. Soon his father – lord Tywin find out and told Tyrion that Tysha was a whore, hired by Tywin himself to make Tyrion a man. After that Tywin ordered each of his guards to have sex with Tysha, forcing Tyrion to watch. And at the end, he forced Tyrion to go last. Tywin did this to show his son how he should treat whores – without any respect or remorse. Tywin paid Tysha a silver coin for each of his guards and then gave her a golden coin for Tyrion – because Lannisters were worth more.
So, was Tysha a rape victim? She was, she absolutely was. And Tyrion did participate it in, yes. But I want you to think of this boy – this thirteen-year old boy, who was forced by his father to watch his loved one being raped and then forced to go last. Tyrion’s body was violated, he was just a boy, forced to participate in a sexual act right in front of his father’s eyes. I do believe this boy was a victim and everyone who says “He should have known better!” really doesn’t seem to comprehend the complexity of the situation. That scene marked Tyrion forever. After that the boy developed his frightening obsession with paid love. If I have to point out an abuser in that scene it would certainly by Tywin, not Tyrion.
On the HBO show, however, things are made a bit easier. In a talk with Shae Tyrion tells the story of how he was forced to watch his father’s guards raping Tysha, but he never says he was forced to go last. The show sometimes does that. They left that part about Tyrion out to make him more like a undoubtedly good guy, just like they made Cat cry and pray for Jon Snow to make her look like undoubtedly motherly figure, just like they said Ned forbade the bedding ritual on his wedding (in the books it’s clearly stated he did no such thing) to make him look like a undoubtedly good guy.
So there, you have it! That’s the whole story!
I’d be happy if you message me again to tell me what you think of it.
Sansa is no longer yours to torment. Understand that monster.
