That composer doesn't disappoint.
Isn't this ever so tragic? I fully understand why she never forgave Robert and fully sympathize with her in this regard.
And possibly even more tragic because she blames Robert, not Rhaegar or even Tywin--who made her a promise he couldn't keep.
And I do think Tywin intended to keep it--I think he was part of starting the war to get rid of Aerys.
I'm never sure how much I sympathize with Book Cersei or if it's a mix with how show-Cersei is played.
I started the books a few years after the show came out--hadn't seen them, but was told it was good.
Then watch the show when I was done--and show Cersei's performance made me feel for book Cersei much more than reading did. Her misery at being a pawn that got misused--the show drove that home for me more.
Though that may mean I just lack reading comprehension.
I could see that--especially in the show. Has voice tagged you into his unsullied parentage experiment thread? Aerys was popular in that "study."
