Re: Not so important connections
Something I realized in my one millionth reread of AFFC: Cersei killed Melara Witherspoon (not completely sure of that last name). She was the girl who had her fortune told along with Cersei. Cersei's POV's mention some thoughts she had about Melara; she thinks of her as a schemer who had thoughts above her station and thinks to herself about the screaming Melara was doing in the well (which means Cersei was at the scene when she died.) Melara asked the maegi if she would marry Jaime, to which the maegi replied something like "Worms will have your maidenhood...your death is in the room tonight" At first I thought that meant she fell down the well that same night (dumb), but she didn't-she was pushed in the well by Cersei, her "death in the room." Sorry if I'm bringing this when everybody else already knew it. Probably not important but it does give us another glimpse of Cersei's sweet personality.
