The Gift

Author: Anonymous / Labels: , , , ,

Finally, a match that everyone can be proud of: Tyrion and Dany meeting.

Oh yes, there was that little something extra about Cersei.

You see, there comes a time in everyone's life where Karma may come back to get them. If you have been a good person, have tried your best, hurt no one, been a loyal friend and/or family member and tried your best to live a good, productive life, then good Karma usually smiles on you.

However, if you have done nothing but lie, cheat, scheme, plot, betray, act violently or viciously towards other people, have used your power and wealth to get people abused, hurt, shamed or killed, well, then it stands to reason that eventually all of you bad deeds will come back to haunt you.

It usually happens when you least expect it. Say, when you frame your ex-fiance and his sister, who just happens to be your daughter in law, and have them tossed into jail. Say, when you sleep with your brother for years and the end result being three pregnancies, and you hide the fact that those children are not the offspring of your lawfully wedded husband and King. You know, when you commit incest with your brother. Oh, and with your cousin. Oh, yes...and get your cousin to ply your late husband with enough wine on a boar hunt to get him killed.

And conspire to have one of the greatest knights and fighters banished from your kingdom, because you are an idiot. And abuse and torment the daughter of your enemy. And constantly undermine and scheme to get rid of your younger brother. Let's also throw into the mix that you had relations with three other men of the Kings guard. The Kettleblack brothers.

Yes, these things have a tendency to come to light because you are an evil, sociopathic monster. You deserve everything that is coming your way.


Strip her of titles. Of wealth. Of power. Of protection.

She needs to be humiliated and dragged through the mud and be thrown to the wolves (yes, that is a nod to House Stark).

I feel no pity for a woman who has done nothing but bodily harm and acted incestuously for years, sowing the seeds of jealousy and hatred.

Oh, you're going to get yours, Cersei. And how poignantly the High Sparrow put it:

"What will we find, when we strip away your finery? A young man came to us, not long ago, broken in body and spirit. He had so much to strip away. So much weighing him down. But piece by piece, he unburdened himself. Let go of vanity, pride, sin. Now his soul is so light. He will float through the seven heavens like a bird... 

He has much to say about you...."

BOOM!!!!! Did you hear that? That was the sound of Karma exploding onto the scene!

"L" is for Lannisters

My favourite family from Westeros....NOT! The ONLY exception is Tyrion. He walks with a swagger, is extremely intelligent and cunning. I like how he sees through everyone else's lies and deceit.

The rest of his family are abhorrent.

Let's start with his older siblings, shall we? What can we say about a pair of fraternal twins who commit incest? Nothing pleasant, that's for sure! Cersei Lannister was the first twin born to Joanna and Tywin Lannister of Casterly Rock. Jaime was born second. Both blond, cherubic and healthy, they grew up looking almost identical. The twins were educated very differently, much to Cersei's chagrin. She was taught all the finer points that befits a young lady of her station: court etiquette, needlework, dancing, poetry, household management and the history of all the Houses in Westeros.

Jaime Lannister was trained by the Casterly Rock men at arms to use swords, shields, axes, lances and how to properly ride horses into battle and for transportation. After all, he was a man and expected to serve his family through politics or combat.

Growing up, the twins began to have a sick, sordid relationship, with each other.  This relationship was carefully guarded and ultimately produced three children, whom Cersei let her late husband think he was the father. Readers of the books and audience members who've watched the series all thought how absolutely disgusting the two of them were for carrying on in such a depraved manner.

Cersei is angry and resentful for being born a female and being made to marry and serve her family like chattel. Jaime is arrogant and condescending, because he is so skilled as a member of the King's guard.

Tyrion is the one everyone likes best. Why? He has survived heartache and ridicule by many, including his own family members. He has used the fact that he is a dwarf to build up his strengths and cultivate a memorable persona. He reads and writes. He is shrewd, intelligent and is very capable of having intelligent conversations about anything. He has empathy for those less fortunate then himself, a rare quality that his siblings and father do not possess. He is a total ladies man. We all love him for it, too!

Then there is daddy. Tywin Lannister does not take bull from anyone. The man stands well over 6'5 and carries himself regally. This is a man with a stern military background. His has been very successful in all of his campaigns. He is also very wealthy and understands court politics and financial policies very well. He has a keen mind and sharp, cutting wit. Tywin Lannister is not the kind of man you want to trifle with. Ever.

There are other Lannisters that we've been introduced to, namely Kevan Lannister and Lancel Lannister. Kevan is Tywin's younger brother. He serves on his brother's war council and gives prudent and thoughtful advice. He is smart enough to know that Tywin holds all the power and that it is best to serve a man who is in power and maintains control of that power.  Lancel Lannister is cousin to Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion. Lancel seems like a little whiner, a backstabbing man who will do anything to elevate his social position. I think we all enjoyed seeing Tyrion mess with his head during the second season. I know I enjoyed their scenes together. Nothing like Tyrion putting a member of his own family in their place! Rightfully so!!

Now, I would also like to include Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen. Joffrey is an outright psycho. His immature and power hungry behaviour speaks for itself. If only Tommen, the youngest boy, had been born first. Tommen has a very sweet and loving disposition. Totally opposite of what a Lannister is like. Myrcella is a sweet natured teenage girl. It's hard to believe that those two younger siblings have Cersei Lannister as their mother. She is a monster.

I wouldn't expect to see Cersei up for 'Mother of the Year' award anytime soon. As for there anyone else out there who is waiting and counting that days to see what goes down in Season III next year?! I am!!

Blackwater Bay!!

I've been thinking, while I was driving around today, running some errands. When I think of Game of Thrones, my mind is filled with all sorts of possibilities. But that's a whole other blogspot.  In honour of tomorrow night's EPIC episode, "The Battle of Blackwater Bay," two songs come to mind.

The first was Thin Lizzy's, "Jail Break," because there are several lyrics that are very appropriate for tomorrow night's battle sequences. The second song - and probably more ominous - is AC/DC's "Hell's Bells." Why that one, you ask? Well, um, hello?! Seven Gods in Westeros - the Old and the New....and because there is going to be a lot of action that goes down tomorrow night.

Some of the characters are going to survive. Others won't be so lucky. Certainly...some characters deserve to go to the deepest, darkest hell in Westeros, for all the misery and destruction they've caused in the last two seasons.

(I am aware that by rooting for the Lannisters, I am leaving myself open to criticism) I want to make it perfectly clear that I am NOT rooting for Prince Joffrey. Tyrion, show your animal side. After all, your sigil is a lion!

T-minus 34 hours and counting!
