So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?
I need a book about a little girl whose parents had promised their firstborn to different witches and the only way that both ends of the deal were fulfilled was for them to have joint custody of the child.
I love it!
And then the witches, forced to share a cottage while raising their joint stolen child, fall in love…

If you hate Cersei Lannister more than Tywin because we had to be inside her head for an entire book and we never got his point of view, YOU ARE A SEXIST ASSHOLE.
#you prefer women to be far away objects so we don’t see their thoughts and insecurities and infalliabilities #and their vulnerabilities and anger and viciousness #and prefer them to be beautiful untouchable archetypes: the mother the maiden the bitch the whore the crone #and then when they have the gall to be real people with fully fledged backstories and motivations you loathe them #and here’s the thing: tywin sort of eviscerated two full households before he was 20 he had an innocent girl gang raped #and made his own 13 year old disabled son participate #he sold his daughter like livestock to a guy that raped and abused her #he literally ruined the culture of a nation with the red wedding and killing the guest right #cersei is a vicious terrible human who has no regard for other people #hating her for those reasons is fair #but if you like fucking tywin and hate cersei #guess what #you suck and i shall call you out
I’m just adding to this here because I was on my phone earlier and forgot to mention it.
The same issue of not deriding the existence of women’s voices even when they may not be the most appealing goes for Catelyn and Robb. When I see people (including GRRM!!!) wish for Robb’s perspective instead of Cat’s because they find her tedious and/or wish the Freys had cut her throat deeper cough cough cough Tower of the Hand, I get slightly irrationality angry. We know why she arrested Tyrion, we know why she betrothed Robb to Roslin Frey, we know why she let Jaime go, we know why she doesn’t like Jon Snow, and so many people are still inclined to throw her under the bus and blame her for everything and are reduced to claiming she’s not attractive enough for Ned, or hated Arya, and the most ridiculous things quite honestly.
It’s really just blatant sexism because yeah, it’s okay to not find her perspective super interesting or to just not be able to let the Jon Snow thing go (even if that’s rooted in the sexist expectation that women are obligated to love children who aren’t their own ignoring their own biases and associations and emotions) but when people blame her for being entirely responsible for the war, or causing the Red Wedding, I actually don’t know what to say.
Like yeah, Robb is interesting as the young wolf who never lost a battle but lost the war, but to put it quite simply: you’re given Catelyn’s perspective for a reason. The legend that’s Robb Stark trying to avenge his father is brought down to earth when you see the repercussions of his decisions from a civilian perspective. To wish Catelyn could just keep her mouth shut and let her 15 year old son rule in peace, even when his ignoring her advice causes him and his campaign serious problems, well, that’s just gross.
