Anonymous asked: Hey, sorry to bother, I've read the asoiaf but haven't been watching the GoT series (exactly because it began disappointing me too much). Could you say what happened in the 4x03 between Jaime and Cersei?

Hey, no problem at all! Needless to say, spoilers for the last episode below the cut. :P

*SPOILER FROM THE 4X03 EPISODE, DON’T READ IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT*

I rarely do posts about fandoms, but I was so concerned too after the last episode of Game of Thrones. It touches me deeply mainly because Jaime is one of my fav characters and I’m so attached to his redemption arc, like most of the book readers, I suppose. The TV series suddenly shows him in a very bad light, AGAIN, and this pisses me off on so many levels. I was curious to know what GRRM would have thought of the adaption of this scene, and this is his response. I agree with him completely. It’s true that the timeline is different, it’s true that in the show Jaime and Cersei are quarreling more than in the books, but some specific changes were so unnecessary, because they made the scene appear disturbing for the wrong reasons.

It seems that Jaime does what he does to punish Cersei, moved more by anger, than hunger/love. And Cersei keeps crying and sobbing, in short, she becomes a victim. I’m starting to think the writers have chosen this “rapey” variation to make the watchers feel really bad for Cersei (generally an hated character). If this is the reason, sure Jaime doesn’t needed such reversion, in exchange. T___T 

This also makes me think how much a reader/watcher is inclined to “forgive” (or, at least, try to understand) a character that you used to really love, despite his/her behaving like an asshole at some point of his/her story. TV!Jaime will have hard times, since he already started like a questionable character. I read that many people who was starting to like him, now are thinking: “I’m done with you. You haven’t changed, afterall!” 

……

(forever sobbing)

(p.s. to anyone who wants to discuss about this, feel free to do it!)

What Shisleya said, so much. I hated this scene too. What annoys me most it’s that it’s completely unnecessary from a strategic standpoint, if their strategy was to make Cersei more sympathetic, because Cersei already is more sympathetic than in the books – and also generally more interesting, ambiguous and layered too. The writers and the actress have done a better job making her more relatable and interesting than the entirety of A Feast for Crows but never letting us forget she’s actually a horrible, irksome woman; now that rape scene just cheapened their efforts and took the easy way out by giving her a victim card.

And as for Jaime it seems like they either wanted to undo his entire redemption arc and make him as despicable as he was before his maiming. Or, more worryingly, I feel the writers (or worse, the viewers) may think his actions are understandable (even forgivable) in this specific case because they were done by a newly sympathetic, fairly righteous character, against a despicable hateful woman.

Meaning it leads the viewers into the age-old comfy mysoginist reasoning that “Yes, rape is awful, but she deserved it as punishment for being the worst”, and THAT I can’t forgive. I honestly don’t think their intention was to portray rape in a righteous light, rather I feel they just really wanted to make Jaime go back to his asshole self (in a rather uncharacteristic way, since his sister’s always been one of the few people he genuinely loves and is willing to treat kindly), but considering the average (young, male) viewers’ attitudes towards female characters on TV, whether good or bad characters (hi Skyler), I find it, shall we say, irresponsible to show rape as anything but the most despicable act only done by the worst vermins of the earth. Of which Jaime, however many his faults, is not, especially by GoT standards.

As far as BrBa x Disney mashups are concerned, this is way funnier than the Frozen one. :P

I love seeing so many collabs among Brazilian artists, it’s really invigorating for the illustration scene here to see such talent gather together.
That said, I’m so in love with this card hahaha♥

This coming Friday Gallery 1988 will be opening its latest Crazy 4 Cult show in NYC 12/13 from 7-10.  
Due to the winter storm I will not be in attendance for the book signing event on Sunday 12/15 from 12-4
Prints of my new “Breaking Jesse” will be available.  The print is a perfect companion for my recent “Heisenberg” print with exact borders and size (16” x 20”).  All prints are hand cut and proofed by me for perfect reproduction.

Fiiiinally done! Been working on this thing for the last six days straight.
Trying to cope with the grief, I HAD to make a definitive homage to the best series ever.
Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan, Bryan Cranston and co. … thanks for all the feels. I’m such a nerd I know

Reblogging, since I’m still in BrBa mode and have gained a few more followers since it was first posted.
I’d also like to seize the opportunity to recommend this for people who couldn’t afford the Breaking Bad barrel boxset: make sure to buy at least the 4th season boxset! The commentary for the episodes is SO FREAKIN’ HILARIOUS. It’s worth for that alone, I swear.
