Around 11 million have watched 6th season premiere of Game of thrones and it is a record in the history of any television premier.
George R.R Martin has built a kind of sphere, which has taken all of us inside it.
“We don’t watch Game of Thrones, we live inside it and it revolves around us.”
Whether it is Robb Stark or Jaime Lannister, both of them make our eyes sparkle.
From the Pentos to the north of the Wall and beyond that, everyone lives in our dreams and we don’t dare to open our eyes while dreaming them.
As a writer, I want to write about each character, one by one. I, myself love Tyrion Lannister, so I will start from him.
I have not read books yet, but Peter Dinklage surely has done his best to live the Tyrion Lannister’s character.
“Tyrion Lannister, first of his name, son of Tywin Lannister (Lord of the Casterly rocks), hand of Queen Daenerys Targaryen”
Tyrion Lannister is not a lord, prince, or king. People call him imp, half man, dwarf.
His own sister calls him a monster because their mother died during giving him birth on her birthing bed.
His father never wanted to accept him as his son because Tyrion’s size did not match the length of Lannister’s name and family pride.
Nevertheless, he survived the world despite all the odds he has in him.
“Never forget what you are, the rest of the world will not. Wear it like an armour and it can never be used to hurt you.”
He did the same. He never forgets what he is and every person in his life don’t let him forget. He wore the reality like his armour and he never makes himself sad after that.
I can remember a scene when he and Jon snow engaged in a short talk while heading towards the Castle Black.
“Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are.”
“What the hell do you know about being a bastard?”
“All dwarfs are bastards in their father’s eyes.”
He accepts his flaws, which have existed in him and doesn’t let anyone use them against him.
His brother Jaime Lannister who killed the Mad king in past and a kingslayer at present. His sister Cersei Lannister is the mother queen and queen regent at the king’s landing.
He fights for his rights and speaks up against the wrong. He respects his enemies, he respects the society, he knows the problem, he advises the best advice and he know the things.
‘I drink and I know things. That’s what I do.’
When Joffrey humiliated Sansa in the king’s court, no one dared to speak against him. Tyrion was the only man who stood up and thrashed Joffrey for his act. He even thrashed Joffrey when peasants attacked the royal family after Myrcella Baratheon’s departure to the Dorne.
He has the gut when most of the people lose it in front of any situation. He fought alone when Stannis Baratheon stormed the king’s landing and the King Joffrey hid because of the fear.
“Whatever the price is, I will beat it. I like living.”
He is the person who finds out possibilities from the edge. He never gets afraid from death because he likes living.
He was caught by Catelyn Stark and found himself at the edge of the death. But, he didn’t give up on his imprecise fate.
Again, he was charged with the king Joffrey’s murder and his own father wanted to see him dead.
His beloved ‘Shae’ whom he loved the most was speaking against him and bedding with his father.
Life is very cruel and so the people.
“Let them see that their words can cut you and you will be never free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name, take it, make it your own. Then they can’t hurt with it anymore.”
Tyrion Lannister is a man of his words, he doesn’t need to use his Lannister name to make himself a significant character in audiences eyes. He is funny and smart, both at the same time. He doesn’t have a sword but he has a mind to use.
You can learn how to start a conversation with someone, how to use enemy against another enemy, how to manipulate and how to live your life without any chains and boredom.
*If I find some other relevant point, I would surely write about it. Sorry, if there are grammar mistakes.*
