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!
Do you guys some good-hearted video maker, who takes requests? I have tried to make videos years ago and they were relatively okay-ish at the time, but nothing really beautiful and breathtaking. And I have this idea for a video in my head and I’d really love to see it done beautifully.
So, I’m talking about a multi-fandom video, dedicated to bad-ass queens :D
Fandoms and characters:
Game of thrones: I’d mostly love to see Sansa, Daenerys and Margaery, but the videomaker should add any queen they love, for example Cersei and Cat would fit right in.
The Tudors: I’d love Anne Boleyn, but all the queens from the show are welcomed, including the lady Mary.
The White Queen: My favorite was always Anne Neville, but was there a female character on that show who wasn’t a queen? Mother and daughter Elizabeth or Margaret Beaufort would be great. Her “I am Margaret Regina!” would be a perfect start for the video, the best opening line :D Or Lizzie’s “So whatever happens in this battle, I will be Queen. And this is the very last time that you will ever sit in my presence.”
Once Upon a Time: Regina Mills, of course! And if the video-maker wants, they could add Snow or anyone who they feel fits the concept. The Red Queen from OUAT in Wonderland pilot looked great too!
These are my most favorite queens, some of my most favorite fandoms and I’d love to see the four of them together! I promise, aside from giving the idea I won’t interfere in any way in the video-maker’s choices, it is their video and they should make it as they want.
Oh, and I have the perfect song! It’s fast and catchy and really joyful! I’ll tell it to anyone who’s interested!
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.
Btw, I just love the way Natalie Dormer pronounces the word thousand. She brings so much emotion in it, so much passion… Two of her the best-delivered lines feature the word.
“Don’t you know I love you a thousand times more than Catherine ever did?!” (The Tudors)
“If you give them your love, they’ll return it a thousandfold.” (Game of Thrones)
Both lines are about love and that’s what makes them so powerful. On the first show it’s about love given a thousand times. On the second show it’s about love received a thousand times. And Natalie delivered those lines perfectly, as usual.
I still haven’t seen her Sherlock episodes, but if she ever says “thousand” I’ll lose it.
Hey there! :)
Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
I don’t know if I’ve talked about it before… But this chapter is my most favorite chapter. Ever. Not because it is a happy or positive one, but because it’s completely honest and devastating and it’s full of really strong emotions and my heart just breaks every time… Maybe I too have a soft spot for cripples and bastards and broken things…
So… Right after I finished the chapter I cried like a baby. It was in that very moment when I started shipping them. GRRM was just too evil. He created something that should have not been created at all. He wrote those two characters – essentially they both were good characters, none of them was portrayed like a villain, they were both like tragic heroes. So GRRM created them and then he married them against their will. And during the ceremony each of them was trying to be nice to the other one - Tyrion was trying to be nice and gentle and spare Sana from pain and humiliation, so he forbid the wedding ceremony. Sansa knelt for him – she didn’t want to kneel for any Lannister, it was her single possible act of rebellion against them, but she actively choose to kneel for him, because she saw he wasn’t the enemy, he wasn’t the one who put her in that position and she felt sorry when all the people in the room were laughing at him. So they were both good people and each of them tried to make the other one happy. But they failed miserably. He couldn’t possibly bring her any happiness, no matter what he did, even though he tried. She couldn’t bring him any happniest either, even though she was always polite and kind and gentle. And that is the hardest thing I have ever had to read. Two good people, trying to help each other and being unable to succeed.
And there came the final line in the chapter. After he promised her that he would not touch her until she wants him to, she asked what would happen if she never wants him to. So he replied “that is why the gods made whores for imps like me.” Which is one of the most horrible lines in all the books. There isn’t any hope, any kind of light, he doesn’t say something like “I will wait and hope for a better future”, he completely accepts that he’ll always be undesirable in her eyes, like he’s undesirable in the eyes of everyone else. The only people who would ever give him any kind of love are the people he could pay. He is fast to accept he’ll never be loved, he’s used to that thought, everything is the same as usual. As someone who has often felt so ugly and so undesirable, I find it easy to relate to that quote.
So my heart breaks for the ugly man, married to a sweet pretty girl, who looks at him with disgust. My heart breaks for this innocent girl, used as a pawn in the game of thrones, who dreamed of being a happy and loving bride and instead got married to a monster by force. My heart breaks, because NONE OF THEM EVER BLAMED THE OTHER ONE, because they tried, they really, really tried…..
These were my thought right after I finished the chapter. And this is why I ship them and I will always ship them. I believe that if two good people really try to bring happiness to each other, sooner or later they will succeed. It take time, much more time than Sansa and Tyrion ever had, but it is possible. They could make it work. Tyrion refused to say a bad word about her during his trail, even though it could have really helped him and it couldn’t have hurt her, since she was nowhere to be found. Sansa refused to say a bad word about him to Lysa, even though it would have made her relationship with her aunt easier. They could have had it all, if they had more time.
As for the age difference – it doesn’t really bother me that much. Tyrion is 12 years older than Sansa, which is not that big of a difference for medieval standards. During the wedding he is 24 or 25. At the time of the wedding Sansa was really young, she was 13, which is a year younger than Danny was when she married Drogo. So I’d prefer it if Sansa was at least two or three years older. But it’s okay for me, because during their wedding I don’t ship them in a sexual way, just an emotional one. And I don’t think they’ll meet soon. So by the time they see each other again – if they ever see each other again – her age would be like 15 or 16 and he’ll be 27 or 28 and it’s not really a problem for me.
I’ve always imagined Ellaria Sand exactly as Penelope Cruz. And that most probably would never change, I’ll always imagine her as Penelope.
But I’ve got to say that casting Indira Varma is a pretty great choice :)
Now I can only hope they’ll cast some other Martells soon…
Hey there! You’re not bothering me, this blog exists for Sansa/Tyrion discussions and opinions :D
Truth be told, I think the producers of the show actually ship Sansa/Tyrion. They ship it really, really hard. HARD, I tell you! :D Lines like “The disgraced daughter and the demon monkey. We’re perfect for each other.” just can’t come from a non-shipper. Sansa admits that Tyrion has tried to be kind to her, Tyrion calls her “a great beauty”, he goes after Joffrey with lines like “She is no longer yours to torment!”, Sansa is smiling when Tyrion takes her from her room from their wedding, she is smiling again when he’s saying “perfect for each other”.
I think the producers really realize that Sansa and Tyrion really could have had it all… That’s the reason you’re seeing so much chemistry between them, I think. That’s why the scene in the season finale, when she is crying at the window and he is unable to say anything is so heartbreaking. What was great about season 3 is how it showed the beginning of a possible romance – something that never really happened, but could have, something that was just around the corner. And the ugly people of this ugly world killed that flower before it even had the chance to blossom. But it would have been a beautiful, beautiful flower. The disgraced daughter and the demon monkey. Perfect for each other.
Yet I still have some dreams of spring…
