I have decided while I love Jamie and Brienne, I do not ship them. There is no need for romance between them.
It is enough that Brienne makes Jamie want to be a better man, and that Jamie views Brienne as a valid and true warrior.
Yes. Their relationship is fantastic and multidimensional as it is.To me, when people insist on adding a romantic element to it, they’re implying that the bond those two have just isn’t real or important enough unless they’re shagging. I think that does a disservice not just to the characters, but to the whole idea that male/female platonic friendships are possible, good, and valuable.
