• I’m just going to go on a long spiel about Brienne and Jaime that nobody asked for
first of all, I shipped them SO MUCH. i was glad they didn’t immediately get together in season 3, and I thought the build-up to their relationship was perfect. Jaime knighting Brienne? The two of them fighting side by side during the battle of winterfell? Perfect.
this was the one ship I was really rooting for. I knew at least one of them was going to die, and prepared for the angst, but d&d subverted my expectations by making Jaime leave Brienne instead of one of them dying in battle.
it hurt. this writing decision said fuck-you to Jaime’s redemption arc and character in general. Maybe Brienne was better off with Tormund after all.
