Jaime Lannister by kittrose Jaime Lannister by kittrose
Goals for 2014: draw more Jaime Lannister.

(and really, draw more, in general)



- SPOILERS - READ AT YOUR OWN RISK -



I drew this a few months ago, but never made up my mind to post it, because... I don't know? The ASoIaF fandom is a bit intimidating. I love this character so much. His perspective and inner monologue are super-interesting. He's a challenge. His highs are exceptionally high; his lows are exceptionally low, and he's capable of everything in between. Yet, you want to root for him. And I'm dying to know what GrrM has in store for him. (no, I don't think he's going to die at the hands of Lady Stoneheart, no. I think he's going to bite the dust... eventually. But not in the first chapters of TWOW.)

On another note I've been wanting to use some gold texture in my works for a while, and Jaime provided the perfect excuse. It 100% gratuitous, but I don't care.

Photoshop, etc. etc.

He's so beautiful, you made him more beautiful. It's a shame they didn't keep his beard like in the books, 'cause it was sort of like an open defiance to Cersei and evidence that he's not the same bloke as before. So you think he's gonna kick the bucket in the last book? By war, Cersei, horse falls on top of him, how?

Thank you very much! I absolutely agree about the beard, I hope he grows it again in the show too.

--- SPOILERS---

Regarding his fate... well, there's the valonqar prophecy and I'm almost positive the valonqar is him. and if he is, then chances are Cersei and he will kill each other and die together as they were born together, and go full circle. Not that I particularly like this scenario, mind you.
And there's the fact that he belongs to the "old generation", i.e. those who were around during the time of Robert's rebellion. Ned, Catelyn, Lysa, Robert, Renly, Aerys, Tywin, Jon Arryn, they're all dead and I don't think it bodes well for Cersei and Stannis either.
But other than that so many people want him dead, really. Dany because he killed her father. Lady Stoneheart because she thinks he orchestrated the Red Wedding. The Stark loyalists and Stannis don't seem like they love him very much either. Etc.

Ultimately I think Jaime's chances of survival depend on how much he manages to distance himself from his identity as a Lannister. I'm afraid House Lannister is doomed.

Hmm, well I think we've had this conversation before, right? It's quite funny, the Lannisters were once the most powerful House in Westeros and now the bloodline is down to a trickle and everyone openly wants to kill the remains. Since we're kinda in the same area, remember the infamous alter scene between Jaime and Cersei? I've heard that it's not as consensual as it is in the book. Now, I don't know if this is true, if it's been blown out of proportion, or it's actually another character. It's kinda like Flappy Bird, one day it's peaceful, quiet, everything's normal, the next chaos reigns and people are calling Jaime a rapist.

ahhh, don't get me started on the spoilers. Game of Thrones is no stranger to using violence on women as a plot device or for pure shock value, so it's sadly unsurprising.
But turning Jaime into a rapist? this blatantly disregards Jaime's whole characterization since Jaime is one of the few men in Westeros who understand how horrible is the concept of rape. He also saved Brienne from rape last season. I don't know what the writers were thinking if this turns out to be true. "Jaime" and "rapist" are two words that shouldn't even be in the same sentence imho.

I don't think they use it for shock value but yeah, it's a somewhat regular occurrence. I just... Like you said, Jaime is one of the few blokes who understands the awfulness of rape, years of listening to Rhaella being tormented by Aerys, and a few other instances that I can't remember off the top of my head. I'm just hoping it's been misconstrued by people or a moment of bad writing where they didn't make it absolutely clear on consent. I'm taking the path of denial until I see the scene for myself, where I'll then feel a small part of me die and drink my disappointment away.

yes I too hope it has all been taken out of context or somehow the person who saw the episode missed some fundamental piece of dialogue, because it simply doesn't make sense to have Jaime go through such a dangerous and uncharacteristically heinous path just in the season where he's supposed to show his true (and better) colors. And it would really ruin what they've done in season 3 with Brienne.
Fingers crossed.

My favourite character! I ploughed through ADWD to get to any part with him, and at the end I was like "noooooooooo don't leave me hanging like this!!!!!"

Amazing work. I've done a bit of ASoIaF stuff, but nothing as beautiful as this. Keep it up!

Haha, Jaime's one chapter in ADWD was such a tease!! I can't imagine how it must have felt for readers who waited 6 years between AFFC and ADWD only to get one Jaime chapter with such a sadistic cliffhanger at the end. really, GRRM? are you toying with our feelings?

Thank you so much for your appreciation!
