REALLY? [Apr. 16th, 2012|03:52 pm]

So. I just watched ep 3 of GoT. Brienne was introduced in this episode.
So...is Jaime/Brienne really canon? Or is this fandom going paring-crazy like fandom likes to do?
I admit that I haven't read the books so I don't know what Brienne was described like (physically) in canon so maybe my surprise is completely unwarranted but I didn't expect...this. Now, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the character because she is not feminine/pretty/etc but...I just don't see Jaime with someone like that. (Which is too bad, because I would have liked to be able to ship a canon het with my fave character.) IDK...maybe she'll grow on me. After all, I she only got a few minutes of screen time which is not really enough to judge on.
But I am slightly disappointed in the first impression.

Brienne is awesome in the books. Though I don't know what she has to do with Jaime, romantically speaking.

I'm not sure either lol. I just know a lot of people ship it in fandom, from what I've seen. I don't know if this is based on canon or if this is just a fandom thing.

Do you mind a few spoilers? Haha...



From what I know, Brienne is/was in love with Renly. When he died, I don't think anything else happened to her, in terms of her being in love with some guy.

But to be quite honest, fandoms and shipping most of the times make no sense to me whatsoever haha... Some people ship Sansa with Sandor, for an example. Sansan. In the books, maybe they were cute together (people say Sandor/The Hound is younger in the series), but in the show it's just creepy. lol
Yet, you will see a lot of people shipping them.

I believe the Brienne-Jamie pairing is just something random from the fans. =D
