I could never abide the weeping of women, Joff once said, but his mother was the only woman weeping now.

"…I will tell the secret to you,
to you, only to you.
Come closer. This song
is a cry for help: Help me!
Only you, only you can,
you are unique
at last. Alas
it is a boring song
but it works every time.” - Siren Song, Margaret Atwood
a water-drenched love story: listen.

I’m always astounded by the Tywin apologists who claim he didn’t explicitly order the public sexual humiliation of Elia Martell. Or that he had NO IDEA OMG what was going on with Gregor Clegane, one of his own closest bannermen, who by the time of the war, if Ned’s Clegane family timeline in AGOT is correct, had already mutilated his younger brother, murdered his sister, and had *just* murdered his father to inherit his land. I find it impossible to believe, like some fans do, that Tywin the detail oriented control freak was completely unaware that all of this was going on in his backyard, in one of the minor houses he oversees.
These are the people who actually believe Tywin’s personal propaganda that he is a “rational” man who cares primarily about politics, rather than an out of control raging narcissist who consistently prioritizes throwing grand guignol gestures to diplomacy even when they’re obviously going to backfire on him politically (committing a two-week-long sexual atrocity against his stepmother, bringing the Bloody Mummers to Westeros and imagining they would never harm his family or cause; thinking he can control Gregor Clegane and the backlash to Gregor’s military style, ie, the Sparrow movement; thinking raping his son and his son’s wife won’t come back to bite him, I could go on and on.) Fans who believe that all of the atrocities that pile up at Tywin’s feet are just accidents, outliers from his real personality and agenda, who are willing to accept the self-aggrandizing narrative he tells people about himself over his actions, boggle my mind. ”Yeah, I did time for domestic assault, I’ve got a couple restraining orders out on me right now, but that’s just, that’s not who I really am, you know? I’m not a violent guy. That’s not me.” I honestly hope these kids are more discerning IRL then they are with their fandom faves.
Yesterday one of my followers sent me a question via submit rather than ask, requesting to discuss one of my posts further, to which I responded by publishing the submit. It was to my great surprise that people began reblogging it, and I quickly found myself being called a “Tywin apologist,” and being held up as “These are the people who actually believe Tywin’s propaganda.” I don’t wish to come across as hostile, but, frankly, your accusations about me are wrong.
was reading your genna and joanna tags and was inspired to sketch :o i’m not sure who this suits better, but either way. :> ty for the good reads!

HI, I just finished reading your wonderful meta on the matter of Tywin’s involvement with Elia’s death. Whilst I agree with everything you say, I have to say I think there’s also another matter you haven’t considered. You said:
The rape… even you will not accuse me of giving that command, I would hope.
This part of the conversation made me do a double take when I first read it, because of course Tywin orders the rape/sexual assault of Tysha and Tyrion, yet he seems almost … mildly disgusted by Elia’s rape.
Would you like to hear my opinion?
Thank you! Sure! I’m always happy to talk about Tywin, and I think that quote definitely allows for multiple interpretations. (Though just to note, I’m at school all day today, so any response from me might have to wait until later in the week, unfortunately.)
[ETA: Anyone’s welcome to jump into this conversation, but please read through the link at the top of the post, where I discuss Tywin’s involvement very thoroughly.]
