Yes because jaime would totally rape cersei
the jaime that felt sick at the sound of hearing rhaella targaryen raped
the jaime that also felt sick after he heard of ellia and her babies being brutally murdered
THE JAIME THAT GOT HIS HAND CUT OFF SAVING HIS FRIEND FROM BEING RAPED
THE JAIME THAT SAID HE WOULD RATHER DIE IF HE WAS A WOMAN THAN LET SOMEONE RAPE HIM
jaime would not rape cersei
the whole point of that fucking scene
is that she says yes
she says you’re home
she says you’re here
and then he fucks it up NOT BY FUCKING HER but by PROPOSING TO HER and telling her that they can replace their dead son with a new one
it’s not the sex that’s the problem it’s jaime’s newly arisen insecurity from his lack of a sword hand
THE WHOLE POINT IS THAT CERSEI SAYS YES
i’m actually amazed i haven’t heard more people talking about the moment sansa assists tyrion in this ep. sansa choosing to assist tyrion is a Huge Deal considering the situation - joffrey is publically humiliating him, making a big, ugly display of his power. and simply by handing tyrion the cup sansa is openly displaying her hostility towards joffrey, and her giving voice to everyone’s disapproval. not to mention, it’s a perfect example of ‘courtesy is a lady’s armour’ - that kindness, acting doubly as an insult, as a statement. she chooses to side with the person joffrey is humiliating. she takes away some of his power just by being kind.
and can we talk about this moment?
this is the person who tormented her for months. the person who could easily punish her over and over for any small transgression against him.
and she looks him in the eye, bends down and picks up that cup, and makes no mistake in showing him she knows exactly what she’s doing and she doesn’t approve of his actions.
LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE BEDTIME STORY
ONCE UPON A TIME, IN A BELOVED BOOK SERIES, AN AUTHOR NAMED GEORGE RR MARTIN WROTE TWO CHARACTERS NAMED JAIME LANNISTER AND CERSEI LANNISTER. THESE TWINS DEPENDED ON EACH OTHER FULLY, BELIEVING THAT ONE WAS NOT WHOLE WITHOUT THE OTHER - IF I WERE A MAN I WOULD BE JAIME, IF I WAS A WOMAN I WOULD BE CERSEI - AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS INCEST, IT WAS STILL BETWEEN TWO CONSENTING ADULTS
AND THEN TWO EVIL DRAGONS NAMED BEINOFF AND WEISS SWOOPED DOWN OUT OF THE SKY AND BREATHED FIRE ALL OVER WHAT WE HAD ONCE KNOWN AND HELD DEAR AND SAID “HEY YOU KNOW WHAT? SHOULD WE INCLUDE THIS CONSENSUAL SEX SCENE, WHICH BRINGS NEW ASPECTS TO EACH CHARACTER? LOL NO LET’S JUST MAKE IT RAPE”
