Character bashing in the comments will not be tolerated. Be a lover, not a hater!
God this is adorable. As others have said, it reminds us that Cersei was just an innocent kid once and treated as little more than a pawn like all highborn children. Maybe if Tywin hadn't been to viciously angry over Joanna's death he would have conceded to wed Jaime to Elia as the mothers' planned and Aerys would have been left with no choice but to marry Rhaegar to Cersei. Maybe.
And had Rhaegar wed Cersei, who is proven to be fertile in the series, he may not have been so eager to chase Lyanna. Maybe. This is all theory and speculation.
He certainly wasn't known for drinking, wife slapping or whoring...
even cercei was innocent once
Jaime is already supposed to be looking like a god, but Rhaegar even more, so he must have been Mister Universe (Mister Westeros!)
But this sort of makes me sad.
And I don't know why?
I think I just in general feel sort of protective of the character, maybe if she had a better childhood, or if she married Ned things would've been better.
(tbh I don't see her as compatible with Ned, but then anyone would have been better than Robert for her I guess)
My whole Ned/Cersei thing sort of comes from the show (The actors chemistry was crazy amazing) also that Cersei continues to think about Ned long after he was killed.
Ps. Lena Headey was convinced that Cersei had a secret love for Ned lol!
