“Hurry,” she was whispering now, “quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime.” Her hands helped guide him. “Yes,” Cersei said as he thrust, “my brother, sweet brother, yes, like that, yes, I have you, you’re home now, you’re home now, you’re home.” She kissed his ear and stroked his short bristly hair.
- A Storm of Swords, Jaime VII
A+ ability to read. Very accurate. Good adaptation.
How do you bring a character back from this?
They know that this scene killed the character, right?
The thing that makes me angriest is that I am entirely certain that they DON’T. They are going to just carry on with the rest of his book characterization like nothing happened because violence against women is casual window-dressing for them.
I guarantee you they see that scene as a) a reasonable interpretation of the book scene, b) just representative of how their relationship is fucked up, in general.
Not like, making Jaime commit a horrible crime against Cersei that he would never commit. And if they do recognize it’s a horrible crime they don’t think it’s a BAD ENOUGH one to affect the rest of his character arc.
Is that the actual text from the book?! It’s easy to see how he’s managed to have such an illustrious career with that exemplary prose.
All that aside what the show writers did is fucked up obviously but JESUS FUCKING CHRIST that is some terrible fanfiction.net level writing.
