Why do you love Myrcella? I watched your "top 40" and I saw her in the top. (Bad curiosity)

dance me to the end of love Answer:

jaimelannister:

Well, we don’t know much about her, but I truly wish she was one of the main characters. Her story is very similar to Sansa in a way, except its closer tied to King’s Landing, the iron throne and the Lannisters. Myrcella is born and raised as a princess, only to get shipped off to be a hostage in a hostile environment (the Martells aren’t cruel to her, but she’s still moved around as a pawn while they openly hate and plot against her family, there are enough people around who want her dead just for who she is).

She’s this well-mannered courteous 11 year old girl involved in a war she has nothing to do with, who has to learn she isn’t even a true princess but a product of incest, who has to stand and watch from a distance how her home is invaded and her family hunted, humiliated and killed. I’m curious to find out how she felt about these events, her older brother being killed off like that, Cersei’s walk, uncle Jaime being her father instead of that drunken sod who hit her mom…. I wanna know everything.

It’s a coming of age story except she’s one of the few characters in asoiaf who has, objectively, an interest in keeping the Lannisters on the throne and to crush the rebels. Politically she’s interesting cause she seems fair and kind and willing to do the right thing, but the Seven Kingdoms, basically EVERYONE except for the ‘corrupt’ ones with all the power are fighting against her. (like.. no one was surprised Stannis spread those pamphlets saying Myrcella was an ‘abomination born of incest’ but let’s not forget that according to Myrcella that man was her family, her uncle who she never meant any harm)

She must have a lot of conflicting thoughts and stuff to figure out regarding what’s happening, her identity, the war and what role she wants to play in it. ESPECIALLY because she didn’t seem to be very politically aware when she arrived in Dorne, she was very sheltered and simply swimming and playing games (what does it say she was constantly playing games with Trystane Martell and WINNING while he didn’t seem to mind to lose, WHAT DOES THAT SAY), but slowly, as more and more news from the capitol reaches her, she must be able to fit more and more pieces of the puzzle together of what’s really going on. She’s slowly reaching this age where staying ignorant and doing nothing will also be a choice.

Plus, out of all Lannisters still alive she seems to be the only one who seems to have the personality to survive. Just as Sansa her courtesy is her strongest weapon, and she isn’t seen as a threat, but at the same time she displays courage, a strong will, and high intelligence for her age and she knows her way around court. (you cant tell me a daughter of Cersei who grew up at court as a princess didnt pick up any tricks on how to get things done from people) Tyrion is impressed by her, the kingsguard is impressed by her, Trystane MARTELL seems impressed by her, Arianne Martell wanted to crown her (which, despite for the reasons it was done, brought her closer to being queen than all those wannabe kings ever were to being King). NOTHING DAUNTED HER

I freaking LOVE MYRCELLA

after all she’s only a young girl who must do what she can to survive in horrible and traumatizing circumstances. (ps. here is an older and more hysterical rant)
