I’ll still be dissapointed when they change people’s names tho. I can live with the rest, WHY YARA UGH.

OKAY YAH I AGREE. The whole Yara and Talisa thing is super dumb. Also be upset that Garlan and Willas had been totally ignored and presumable don’t exist. And how somehow Loras, a third son, is supposed to marry Cersei. That’s dumb.

That’s an actor’s dream: To have a diverse career that asks me to go into scary new places within myself. I do well when I step into things I know nothing about.

"I’ve lived to bury my desires,
And see my dreams corrode with rust;
Now all that’s left are fruitless fires
That burn my empty heart to dust."

"Kings" + Final Words

i don’t hate arianne but SERIOUSLY YOU LOST A CHILD’S EAR HOW COULD YOU

"Well, it hasn’t come a moment too soon, really. It does help Tywin, because I’ve sorted out who I want to marry who. It’s all about maintaining the status quo really — making sure the Lannisters stay up there. Whether it’s getting help from the Dornish or the Tyrells, the most prominent house in the seven kingdoms is the house of Lannister, so I have to do whatever it takes to make sure that that situation stays. And way over in the east there’s these continuous rumors about this Targaryen girl with her dragons that I’m trying not to think about — let’s cross that bridge when we come to it. But now that we’ve got Joffrey out of the way, the young man that I want to put on the throne I can put on the throne … the death of Joffrey is fortuitous because he was kind of like a little mosquito anyway — annoying, that you’re swatting all the time."

Charles Dance on the Purple Wedding (via nabokovsshadows)

"i’m trying not to think about [it] — let’s cross that bridge when we come to it."

Tywin is one of the few characters I think D&D do right:

The eunuch drew a parchment from his sleeve. “A kraken has been seen off the Fingers.” He giggled. “Not a Greyjoy, mind you, a true kraken. It attacked an Ibbenese whaler and pulled it under. There is fighting on the Stepstones, and a new war between Tyrosh and Lys seems likely. Both hope to win Myr as ally. Sailors back from the Jade Sea report that a three-headed dragon has hatched in Qarth, and is the wonder of that city—”

“Dragons and krakens do not interest me, regardless of the number of their heads,” said Lord Tywin. “Have your whisperers perchance found some trace of my brother’s son?”

Tywin is an ESTJ, he’s very concrete, he’s very focused on the task in front of him, and there are so many things he’s just trying not to think about (*cough*jaime/cersei*cough*). The things down the road will just sort themselves out: 

Lord Tywin steepled his fingers beneath his chin. “Balon Greyjoy thinks in terms of plunder, not rule. Let him enjoy an autumn crown and suffer a northern winter. He will give his subjects no cause to love him. Come spring, the northmen will have had a bellyful of krakens.

It’s part of the extreme irony of Tywin Lannister that he is so concerned with his legacy 1000 years down the road, but when he’s dealing with what’s right here and right now, he disowns both of his sons!! 

And Tywin focusing on the marriages, treating everyone like his pawns:

"Even from the grave, Lord Tywin’s dead hand moves us all."

I have been so happy with Tywin’s characterization on the show.
