The woman nodded and began to pour the wine in the golden glass. “No, my Lord. They were too much busy with some chores. They just told me to bring the tray here.” She answered, being very polite with the man who was far more intelligent than her. His voice seemed to be softer than what the rumors had told of it. 

Once she poured the wine, Zazu gave him the glass. “D-Do I need to go away or do you prefer me to wait here for you to have finished?” She inquired, daring to look at him.

Busy with other chores? Were they really becoming so short-staffed? So long as they didn’t lack for soldiers on the battlefield, Tywin supposed it didn’t really matter. He took the glass and sipped from it, and was about to cut a slice of meat before the servant spoke again. With a sigh, he looked up at her. “You may wait,” he spoke. “You’ll need to carry this back down to the kitchen when I’m finished.” That said, he started on his meal, thankful that it wasn’t mutton.

"Alright." She whispered and waited, holding her hands in front of her. Her eyes began to wander along the room, finding it very pretty and huge. Zazu was used to live in a small room, this one was immense at her eyes.

Then, her eyes fell down on the man again and the girl began to scan his behavior, his moves. She felt uncomfortable here, waiting for him and watching him eat while her stomach was growling for food. Zazu covered her stomach, hoping that the noise would stop. 

As he ate, Tywin could not help but glance at the girl every so often. It was clear she had no idea how a servant should or would behave. Her eyes wandered, betraying her wonder and awe. She looked at him, and he could see the nervousness she felt. And perhaps just a hint of fear. The more forkfuls of meat he took, the more irritating her presence became. Eventually, he decided to break the silence. If she was going to stand there and disrupt the stillness of his chamber, he might as well have her do something while she was here. “What is your name, girl?” he asked, a question he had not asked that cupbearer in Harrenhal.

SEND ME A ✿ AND MY MUSE WILL REACT TO YOUR MUSE PUTTING A FLOWER IN THEIR HAIR

"My Lord?"

"I do not doubt that," Tywin replied, his face as stony as ever. Does she really think I do not realise that? "I only wish to you to know I harbour no ill will towards you or your own. How have you been faring, Daenerys?"

image

"Well… It was a lot easier than I thought… And nicer, considering what the war did." She nodded. I am more than grateful that you didn[‘t kill us on your doorstep when we arrived in the city."

"Such a response to your arrival would have been unwise and unwarranted. You are an honoured guest in King’s Landing, a Targaryen returned." For now. Until you plot to destroy us, as your father no doubt would. But you made your first foolish mistake when you entered this city without destroying it. "I hope we can put the tragedy of the war behind us."









Like father, like son.

"But I do expect you to understand that you have a duty. A duty to your House and a duty to your family. Are knights not sworn to perform their duty? Leave the Kingsguard and take your rightful place at Casterly Rock, or you are no son of mine."

"My duty is to protect the King, to defend the innocent and the weak… to fight for justice. I did not swear to fill your halls with screaming whelps, and I won’t do it. Tyrion will give you heirs."

image

"You blind, golden fool. Even if Tyrion were not facing trial for regicide, I would not allow him to fulfil even that function. The mothers of my ‘heirs’ would be whores, and Casterly Rock would crumble and fall until it is no more than a brothel. And Tyrion is no son of mine. He will never take my place as the head of House Lannister. That is your rightful place. Or so I thought, until now. You were a Lannister before you were a Kingsguard. See sense, Jaime, before it is too late."

    ♔    ” A dragon’s scales are harder than you might think,
               and you needn’t quote ‘The Rains of Castamere’
               at me. I am no such barbarian to be entirely left
               unaquainted with Westerosi… legend, shall we
               call it. But while we quote House mythology, let
               us not forget that we Targaryens take what is ours
               with fire and blood. Peaceful solutions have no
               place in our affairs, Lord Tywin. Nor do I believe
               there is any agreement we might reach except
               one bathed in blood and flames. We both desire
               the same thing, do we not?”

"I would hardly call it legend. Legends are not entirely fact, and are muddled by the long decades that pass after they happen. However, I do apologise if I implied you were ignorant of Westeros’ history. I would never assume that, considering you are from the family who ruled for almost three hundred years. That time came to an end, however. I will not deny that I played a small part in that stage of history. But your family may yet rule again. I do not doubt your power, Daenerys. If our two Houses were to go to war against each other, the realm would bleed. The damage would be catastrophic and take years to repair. Blood and flames do not appeal to me as much as you seem to think. I only resort to such things when I have no other choice. Would you deny me that choice? Or can you not see the benefit in coming to some sort of agreement?"

"It has been a long time, Lord Tywin. I was still a child when you and the Usurper ruined everything. When the Baratheon murdered my brother and you took down the rest of my house. But I have taken some solace in the knowledge that for all of my fathers supposed madness, none of his children were as stunted and depraved as yours."

"I have only one stunted child, and none depraved. Not in the sense you speak of, anyway. And your father’s madness was not ‘supposed’. I witnessed it first hand. I knew him at court and served him in politics. Few knew the man better than I. Tell me, Prince Viserys, do you take after your father? Do you enjoy burning the skin of those who commit petty wrongs against you and listening to their screams? Or do you not yet have the power to order such acts of stupidity?"

So it’s more or less midnight over here, and in about six and a half hours I shall be heading off on holiday for a week. I have no idea if I’ll have wi-fi where I’m at, so as you can imagine, I will be scarce until next Saturday/Sunday. I’ve queued replies to some threads, but I didn’t have time to reply to as many as I would have liked, unfortunately. So the blog hopefully won’t be entirely bare while I’m away. I shall see you guys in about a week, and I love you all!

Save from death; Cersei, Jaime. [AHAAHAH NOPE]

"Jaime, so long as he would agree to remove that white cloak. If not, then Cersei. Despite the fact that the chances of her finally maturing enough to listen to me are slim."
