House Lannister: No Middle Ground Fanmix  

*original artwork by Ted Nasmith

This is another one of those Forever Sitting On My HD (F+TM debuted Lungs that July and it's songs have since been used in EVERY FANMIX EVER). Lannister's project. A lot. To say they are 'fucked up' would be a severe understatement, completely psychotic, may be more apropos. That being said, I can't help but love their convoluted dysfunction and all the angst it generates individually and collectively. Often, I have the feeling that not only do they hide behind their pride and ego, they crumble under its legacy. This mix is partially pre-series and partially a take on their intertwined messed-up-ness during A Song of Ice and Fire. ETA: I should also mention I made this shortly after finishing A Clash of Kings and starting on A Storm of Swords so most of these theories/assumptions were completely incorrect.

My Family's Role in the World Revolution; Beirut
{House Lannister}

Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up); Florence + the Machine
{Cersei & Jamie; Cersei & Tywin}

How quickly the glamour fades
I start spinning slipping out of time

Tywin probably saw to it that Jamie was sent to the King's Guard so early to stop the incestuous relationship his children were carrying on. Apparently this strategy had the opposite of its desired effect. Yes, I know the twins were fifteen when that happened, but come on! This is The Lannister's we're talking about.

Tyrants; Black Mountain
{Jamie & Aerys}

The battles of this fashioned war
Ain't what we've been fighting for

Perhaps some of the motivation, beyond the obvious, for Jamie killing Aerys.

Run Me Down; The Black Keys

Run me down in the city run me down on the farm
Run me with your eyes and your heady charm

Ah yes, the resilient dwarf and his resilient mind.

~ * ~

Two Weeks; Grizzly Bear

Think of all the ways momentary phase
Just like yesterday I told you I would stay

Jamie was always more in love with Cersei than she was with him.

Scarecrow; The Veils
{Joffery & Sandor}

Death cold pecked bare red collar bled white
No black heart there no bark and no bite

~ * ~

Master of None; Beach House

We run our fingers together
You know it's easy the devil's plan
On your own
You can not call me your all

~ * ~

Curs in the Weeds; Horse Feathers

Father of three won't you believe that the ones in between
The ones that are blamed of fickle faith
Cynics that seethe
How their children are cursed cursed to believe

~ * ~

Service Bell; Grizzly Bear & Feist

I keep a service bell by my bed for you
Let the others do what they do
I will hold on

~ * ~

Stay Free; Black Mountain
{Tyrion & House Lannister}

We’re fire in the sky
Oh the death at your door

Huh ...

Interesting playlist ... *lifts eyebrow*

I'll say that Tywin didn't ever know about the twins relationship/Love.

I believe in a Storm of Swords Jaime comments on how Tywin would have "Rained Castemeer on Cersei" if he had ever caught/found out about them.

I think that in A Feast for Crows Cersei even admits that Tywin never knew and that the only person who ever had an incling was Joanna and that was because she caught them having sex when they were kids.

But as Cersei pointed out (and rather smuggly might I add) bitch bought it before she could fully seperate them ... LOL!

Though I will concede however that Tywin saw something he didn't like about the two's relationship and tried really hard to seperate them.

I should've amended this post with a note that I put this together between my reading of ACoK and ASoS over a year ago. A lot of this reflects my perception and own personal canon of the Lannister's during that period.

All the points you've made are somewhat fuzzy memories at this particular time... I'm taking it as the universe's way of telling me to brush up on some ASOIAF lore. Mostly because of Cersei, my favourite conniving bitch I love to hate. ^___^ Thanks for the comment.

Hey it's cool ...

I hope I didn't sound to much like a dick in my post.

I was trying to start a conversation here and I think I came off a little pretentious.

It's just that I went through all four books throught the summer and it's all pretty fresh in my mind so ... I still remember all the little things.

I love Cersei too she's my third favorite character in the series.

Ahahaha, no worries, you didn't come off as dicky at all. I wasn't offended in the least. It's been well over a year since I devoured the awesome that is this story making the broader strokes much more memorable (hello alliteration!) for me.

Third fave you say? Who's your top two? I'll give you my top five.

1. Arya
2. Jon
4. Cersei
5. Tyrion/Jamie

Oh, Let's see here ;)

1.) Robb Stark
2.) Berric Dondarrion
3.) Cersei Lannister (LENA!!!)
4.) The Red Viper
5.) Jon Snow

I feel a little guilty because everyone I've met has gotten into it because of the literary epicness and I got into it because I was a huge Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fan and fell in love with Sarah Connor herself (And Lena Headey by proxy) so at first I was like alot of people and was just going to watch the show, but eveytime I went to a book store it was like BAMM! right in my face so I was like screw it and bought A Game of Thrones.

and it's been downhill since LOL!

well I'm not sure why I gave you my origin story to the fandom but I did ;)

Wow, sorry for the late reply.

OH ROBB! I totally LOVED how his dynamic/relationship with Cat evolved and just... OH!

Hehe, LENA = LOVE. I got into it cos one of my Bro's friends was all OMGYOUGOTTAREADTHISITSSOAWESOMEIDIDNTGOTOCLASSWHENIWASSUPPOSEDTOBECAUSEOFTHISRIGHTHERE! And, well, how can you turn down that kind of a sell? The universe speaks to us in many many ways and what a great ride down the slippery slope, right?

Origin stories are always welcome. ^___^
