pisatnavzryd asked: I was actually thinking about this: I literally don't know why people are so scared to call out GRRM (or any established author) for his issues and resort to just making strange and sometimes downright offensive claims. Like, I wish that any slightly dissenting opinion wasn't seen as "shitting on the source and blatantly wrong," which I've gotten when I said that the narrative treats Arya better than Sansa and Tyrion/Jaime better than Cersei. It doesn't mean I hate Arya or Jaime or Tyrion

I agree. I think it’s so painfully obvious that the narrative favors Arya, Tyrion, Jon, Dany to a degree it doesn’t favor anyone else. That’s just a statement of what one perceives as fact, not one’s own value judgment.

Anonymous asked: just curious...if jaime kills cersei and gets away with it and outlives her. would you consider that cersei being fridged for jaime's redemption arc?

That’s a very good question. I’m inclined to say no because Cersei has successfully established herself as a character outside of Jaime, if anything it’s Jaime who has had to earn his prominence after his other two siblings. I don’t know if that conforms to an “objective” definition of fridging but for me, for whatever reason, her being successfully a determiner of her own orbit (and not simply being in Jaime’s) means that her death would matter to her arc and not just to Jaime’s (maybe more). I also don’t think it would necessarily mean that Cersei had to die for Jaime to progress. I have a hard time seeing Jaime murdering Cersei as a good thing for his moral development (in the sense that “redemption” refers to him becoming a more moral person. Some people may grossly cheer it on but for all his flaws I can’t see GRRM writing the narrative that way on purpose. Jaime would have to kill Cersei in a very specific way, ie killing her saves the realm ala the Aerys situation, for it to be a heroic deed, and even then it’s not like he hasn’t done that already, so I don’t see how it would come off like some kind of progress for him. Being willing to sacrifice Cersei for some greater good doesn’t seem to me to fit in to Jaime’s trajectory at all. It doesn’t bear on what his arc’s themes are IMO. If the point is that by denying Cersei’s hold on him, Jaime establishes himself as a grown adult who applies his own thoughts to his actions, then that’s already accomplished by his burning her letter.

BTW if that did happen, even if I weren’t to call it “fridging” I’d still find it incredibly obnoxious writing. If he murders her and ends the series forever hollow and empty and dark, because it’s still murder, it would be less obnoxious, though it could still be written in a way that invites cheering at her death which I don’t much want. Cersei has done awful things but it’s not Jaime that I want to see in judgment of her.
