draculemihawks asked: Something I think about a lot is Maggy the Frog's prophecy to Cersei. I'm not sure if you've talked about this at length on this blog but I wanted to ask you what think it means. Personally, I feel that the younger, prettier queen in the prophecy is Daenerys or Sansa, not Margaery, and the valoquar who will kill her is Jaime, not Tyrion. Even though she is only older than Jaime by a few moments it's very possible that it is him, considering the deterioration of their relationship over time.
Daenerys and Jaime, 100%.
Matters of interpretation aside, I think Maggy’s prophecy is revealing for another reason entirely: Given the opportunity to ask any three questions she chose of a woman who can see the future, she asked if she’d marry the prince, if she’d be queen, and how many kids she’d have. Even at that young age Cersei had no lack of cunning or ambition, yet this is still the horizon line of the greatest possible life she could imagine: marrying well and giving birth. It says a lot about the opportunities afforded and denied even the wealthiest, prettiest, smartest, toughest, most highborn women and girls in Westeros.
