THIS MAKES ME SO FUCKING ANGRY
ARE YOU ACTUALLY EVEN KIDDING ME
THE FACT THAT SOMEONE ALLOWED WHOEVER THE FUCK WROTE THIS TO BE PUBLISHED LET ALONE THE FACT THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY!!!! PUBLISHED!!!! REALLY!!! PISSES ME OFF
THIS WOMAN SAVED NOT ONE

BY HER OWN COURSE OF ACTIONS
NOT BECAUSE SHE WAS TOLD TO OR BECAUSE IT WAS HER DUTY
BECAUSE SHE FUCKING WANTED TO
SOMETHING THAT WHEN YOU LOSE
YOU DO NOT GET BACK

IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE FACT THAT SHE SAVED
I AM FUCKING
I think this kind of sympathy was long overdue. In the books it happens during their wedding.
People say that Sansa sees Tyrion as another Lannister, but that’s not completely true. She sees him as another victim of the Lannisters. You know how in the books during the wedding she has to kneel before him for the cloaking ceremony. She is too tall and he can’t cloak her. So he gives her a sign that he wants her to kneel. And at first she is thinking “I won’t. Why should I spare his feelings, when no one cares about mine?” And then she hears how Cersei and Joffrey and everyone else are laughing at him, making fun of him. And when she turns around and sees his face, she understands him, she gets that he’s just in another kind of prison. And she kneels for him.
That kind of inner struggle was cut from the wedding ceremony on the show. I can only imagine George Martin didn’t enjoy that. So when he was writing 4x02, he decided to add that scene with the cup. In the books the cup gets under the table and Tyrion goes there and takes it himself. On the show we see Sansa kneeling, taking the cup and giving it to Tyrion. That small scene, written by GRRM personally, is a significant evidence of how the author sees the relationship between these two characters. They are not enemies, they are not even indifferent, they are allies, they help each other and give each other comfort when they can. They care about each other. And it’s not based on passion or lust, as with so many of the relationships in the series, but on mutual understanding, sympathy and kindness. I believe this is the foundation of the truest love possible. Remember when Cat was talking about her love with Ned in season 2:
“Your father didn’t love me when we married. He hardly knew me, or I him. Love didn’t just happened to us, we build it slowly over the years, stone by stone… For you, for your brothers and sisters; for all of us. It’s not as exciting as a secret passion in the woods, but it is stronger, it lasts longer.”
I will go down with this ship. Always and forever.
