He was a Lannister of Casterly Rock, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard; no sellsword would make him scream.
Sunlight ran silver along the edge of the arakh as it came shivering down, almost too fast to see. And Jaime screamed.”
We’re taking her to King’s Landing. Unless you kill me.
How can such a night be beautiful? he asked himself.
He laughed a ragged, breathless laugh. “Come on, come on, my sweetling, the music’s still playing. Might I have this dance, my lady?”
#but it’s just so perfect for their relationship, brienne grabs his fork with a sort of annoyance like, she doesn’t wholly want to admit that she’s grown fond of him, and jaime comes in real quiet and subtle,which i think is often his way of caring for people, which is probably something he learned a long time ago, that when he needed to care for tyrion and cersei he couldn’t be loud and he always needed to be gentle, because when he dealt with his family he was always walking a tightrope, jaime’s whole identity up to this point has been as the rock of his siblings who hate each other, he’s stability and comfort to people who are sloppy and angry and scared and ready to pounce at any time, so taking care of brienne comes naturally to him in that way
I have a love affair with Jaime and Brienne’s faces and the faces they make when they’re around each other. Even the “I’m-so-tired” faces and the “I’m-in-so-much-pain” faces and the “I’m-starting-to-care-about-you-but-I-don’t-want-to” faces and the “It’s-called-the-Sapphire-Isles-because-the-blue-of-its-water” faces and the “You-knew-that” faces and the “Why-did-you-help-me” faces. I could cry on the inside.
Was that all I was, a sword hand? Gods be good, is it true?
Lord Bolton, I give you the kingslayer. (x)
…I think I found a face sadder than Viserys’ “oh goodie I’m gonna get a crown” face.
