Name a fandom you know I know and I’ll tell you
The first character I first fell in love with
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
The character everyone else loves that I don’t
The character I love that everyone else hates
The character I used to love but don’t any longer
The character I would totally smooch
The character I’d want to be like
The character I’d slap
A pairing that I love
A pairing that I despise
"Mum used to say we were the same soul split in two and walking around on four legs. It seems unnatural being raised together and then dying apart."

like honestly, four years ago, pretty much every other post in the ‘tyrion lannister’ tag was a discussion of the various reasons he deserved to die (almost always highlighting the sexual assault he and tysha suffered at the hands of his father) and the extremely graphic scenarios under which that could happen.
I think it’s hard to explain to people that weren’t around at that time, but yeah, while the ‘tyrion lannister’ tag is still a shitty place to hang out, his treatment by fandom today speaks of so much less visceral hatred, it’s refreshing.
I’d understand if Tysha couldn’t get over what happened, too. Here’s the thing, though, which you’ve shown in your response: this isn’t really about Tysha. It’s about fans and their “frustration”. It is NOT okay for you to blame Tyrion for being sexually abused as a child because you’re frustrated with some of his fans. And that’s what the OP was doing. Their words were:
Even if Tyrion finds Tysha and apologizes, I don’t want her to forgive him.
Implying that 1) Tyrion needs to apologize (for being sexually abused as a child???) and 2) Tysha should not forgive him. And they didn’t say that they thought that’s what would happen, either, they said that’s what they wanted to happen, implying that they would get some sort of satisfaction out of seeing a sexual abuse survivor being punished in some way.
I do think it’s likely that Tysha would not want to be in a relationship with Tyrion again, but that’s not what people say when they talk about this. They want Tysha to blame him. They want her to hate him. People have said this over and over, and people still blame Tyrion for what Tywin did to him and Tysha over and over. When I first discovered tumblr it was because of a post that thegoodlannister made, because she was the only person I had ever seen, not just on tumblr but anywhere, talking about how Tyrion was a victim in Tysha’s assault. That is a problem. When a thirteen year old boy is forced into sex by his father as a punishment, and no one thinks that this is abuse, that is a problem. I really don’t care what your excuse is, that is not okay.
And if some people would like to imagine Tysha wanting to get back together with Tyrion, of her own free will because that’s what she wants, so what? I agree that she shouldn’t be obligated to love him, and I personally can’t see it happening, but I find it really disturbing that the idea that some fans want a happy ending for Tyrion and Tysha offends people more than blaming a child for being sexually abused by his father.
Stan Lee on Marvel OTPs
So basically Stan Lee ships everyone with anyone.
God hath spoken.
Wilson asking House what his favorite memory of their friendship was and House rambling on for hours even after Wilson has fallen asleep.
No one looked at him. No one spoke to him. No one paid him any mind.
so i’m doing homework and this is actually one of my assignments but nvm that, let’s get down to babbus
i made this after that other sketch after what becky wrote in her tags and the little fic alittlethor wrote.
the infamous loki infamously taking the thowdinsons things
don’t repost this or i will actually eat u
Ah, it doesn’t matter how many times I get this ask, it’s one I’m always happy to answer! Probably the best place to start when it comes to understanding my take on Sansa/Tyrion - which, of course, doesn’t speak for everyone who ships them - is my Sansa/Tyrion shipping manifesto.
From there, you can check out pretty much everything in my hairbrushing tag. I hope that’s what you’re looking for! <3
