dreaming big by Pojypojy dreaming big by Pojypojy
Made for luvscharlie @ lj. The prompt was "A young Cersei/Brienne's dreams of what her life will be like when she marries the prince of her dreams. A young girl's fantasies, infatuation, the tall, dark and handsome prince. Build up in her expectations." To be honest I think that canon already filled the prompt in the best way with what was probably Cersei's cutest moment - her drawing a picture of herself and Rhaegar on dragonback :) Only when it was to late to redo it I realised she was supposed to be riding behind Rhaegar though .___. I guess we can pretend she indulged in the fantasy more than once.

This is why I love Cersei, she may be cruel and a scheming bitch, but she has her cute moments, funny moments "droll", and moments when she is actually clever. In other words, she`s a complex character.

I think the same. She is one of the most interesting characters in the series.

On the darker side, as adorable as this picture is, I must admit I kind of disagree with what a number of people are saying in the comment section, namely that Cersei may have turned out for the better if she had married Rhaegar. Keep in mind, she was "experimenting" with Jaime around that age, she threatened to have Maggy the Frog's eyes gouged out, she was a vicious bully to Tyrion, etc. Also, this is pure speculation, but...I think Cersei--at least in the books--may have had a hand in her mother's death. In the show, she genuinely misses her mother, but in the books, she regarded her mother's death as an obstacle being removed. Think about that. Joanna knew about her little "experiments" with Jaime and placed them in separate rooms without informing her husband. It doesn't say whether or not she was pregnant with Tyrion at the time, but if she was, it's possible that Cersei may have arranged for something to be put in her mother's food that may have weakened her during the birth and also indirectly led to Tyrion's dwarfism. Again, this is total guesswork, just to be clear, but it makes sense to me. So, this is a cute picture, but Cersei was a budding monster by that point, not an innocent girl with a chance to be a better person.

 Sad to think that even Cersei had dreams that didn't involve inflicting hideous abuse on her enemies or her family, Once Upon a Time ...

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...

Whenever it comes to her relationship/marriage that should have happened (but never did) I start to wonder how Cersei would have turned out if her dream came true. She might have been a kinder person. And less screwed-up.

That's true. Everytime she thinks about him, it's to say he was handsome/hot/looking like a god.

Jaime is already supposed to be looking like a god, but Rhaegar even more, so he must have been Mister Universe :XD: (Mister Westeros!)

Yeah...Rhaegar was so atractive...that Jon Connington went gay for him. Jaime was godly looking but then [Spoilers] shit happened to him and...well.

I have to read again the chapters with Jon Connington, is it official that we was attracted by Rhaegar? was he really gay? or liked women but was attracted by only ONE man :XD:

:iconbling-werewolf-girl:
Bling-Werewolf-Girl Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
yep, the few Jon Con chapters do seem to put Rhaegar in a very hight standard; In  Jonīs point of veiw Rhaegar was perfect and he (Jon Con) tried not only to impress the very sexy prince but to "gain his love and respect" so it does not say something like "Jon Connington was supergay for Rhaegar" but it points much of "Rhaegarīs Perfection"so yeah...Jon Connington was in love of the Crowned Prince of Dragonstone; Prince Rhaegar Targaryen who would have been the best king.

Aw poor little Cersei! She dreamt so big back then! Also, I love how she had to lie about what the picture was of to Jaime! Even then he was jealous!

Yeah, I also think that she could possibly have already internalized the notion that being open about what you really desire/wearing your heart on your sleeve makes you vulnerable... or maybe it was just straight out embarrassment :)

Ooh! That is very Cersei! With Tywin as a rolemodel she had probably started thinking about keeping her guard up in terms of her wants and desires. She was the Lannister who most wanted to be like her dad (the boys had cottoned onto the fact he was a horrible person). She looks so sweet here, makes me sad to think about how she ended up!

That's true! I think there's a chapter in AFFC where someone says Jaime takes after Kevan. I always imagine Gerion as the fun Lannister brother, because he liked Tyrion

I know this is supposed to be cute ... and sort of funny.

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.

No, you're right - it IS sad, it breaks my heart to know that she used to be a Sansa-like little girl who dreamed of Prince Charming and then she got her hopes systematically crushed. I mean, other people might have coped with it in a more constructive way (the good old nature vs. nurture, etc.), but I definitely understand why she grew up to be so angry.

(tbh I don't see her as compatible with Ned, but then anyone would have been better than Robert for her I guess)

I agree with all your points ...

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!
