  1. Jaime and Cersei not only seem to represent a Macbeth splitted in two parts - one returning, the other going on with wading through blood - but a Westerosi twin study. As children they switched roles easily. Cersei took fighting lessons, but as a grown-up her martial power is pretty much reduced to having ships named after her. Brienne's story proves how hard it is for women to live the life of the opposite gender. She grew more into a twin to Jaime than Cersei. Vary's fAegon speech at the end of DWD was shocking on so many levels. Amongst them the realisation of how poor the education for Westerosi queens really is compared to that little boy with sheer ambition to sit the throne. Cersei knows very well by now that her tears and sexual parts arn't true waepons, since they won her no fight. Let's wait and see.
  2. Dear Lord Wraith, you really want me to do it? ;-) I feel the common rejection of Cersei has a lot to do with the fact that no other POV ever thinks kindly of her. Sansa is another charakter you could call architect of her own destruction, but many of us do relate to her, even when she turns a blind eye on her own faults. She is loved by many other characters which makes it easier to believe she does not deserve a bad fate and can become better. Methinks Cersei deserves the same and I can easily see this coming from an uninspected POV. Her self-destruction just holds too much healthy Macbeth potential, she could serve the realm in her own way. And she sees all that, like Ned did when he was hand. Her schemes deal with her isolation in an imperfect political system. "I am in blood Stepped in so far that should I wade no more. Returning were as tedious as go o'er."
  3. Since no character thinks of Cersei in a positive way, I feel forced to side with her, as if she were a real-life person. I've even started to count deaths she is directly responsible for and mildly overlook those cases which went a bit out of control. Just to compare her case with more liked characters. I hate having to do this for her and hope another character will do this in future.
