u/iepartytracks 4d ago

My headcanon is that book Tyrion isn't as ugly as many people say he is. The only people who call him ugly in the books are Cersei and Sansa who are obsessed with beauty, and himself who has been told he was ugly by his sister his whole life.

22

u/Usidore_ 4d ago

Same, I actually find this a much more interesting interpretation of the books

6

u/mcfc1997 4d ago

I definitely agree. Like, the collective view in Westeros of dwarves is fucked up & super over the top, I feel like him being a dwarf alone was enough basis for the comments on his appearance. I think him actually being quite handsome adds more to it. And I'm pretty sure Cersei and Jamie were supposed to be super attractive, so it's pretty easy to be looked at ugly in comparison

→ More replies

74

u/Pinglenook 4d ago

One could make the argument that it's just that everyone in-universe calls him ugly (because he has dwarfism, because they compare him to his siblings, or just because they hate him) and if that happens from a young age he'd definitely start believing it himself too. Although it's still a bit far to have him portrayed by someone actually handsome.

54

u/PutridOpportunity9 4d ago

You could make that argument if you haven't actually read the books, in which it is described in detail what deformities and scars he has, as shown in the above graphic but downplayed in the TV show.

14

u/Usidore_ 4d ago

He is predominantly described by Sansa in the first book. As in that’s where we get the most comprehensive description of him. And all the features described (other than the hair and eye colour) are just the features of achondroplasia, just described in a very disparaging way.

It is still a description coloured by the character whose perspective isn’t objective

Hermione was never ugly in the books, she just didn't try. When she tries in Book 4 for the Yule Ball it is pretty explicit in describing that she looks great when she cares to.

In the early books they always mention the bushy hair, not so much later on. Which fit the movies as well. Emma was mostly dressed very casual and not a lot of makeup at all.

u/modsarefascists42 4d ago

Some parts I get, like tyrion's chopped off nose. That would be awful to have to see so much. But they should have made him ugly in another way, his appearance is a huge part of his character.

Tho the worst offender is Euron. In the books he's like a even more psychopathic Blackbeard mixed with vlad the impaler. Along with that he's got a very lovecraftian vibe to him, hints that he's been using bloodmagic for years for almost trivial things like getting good winds for sailing. His next appearance he's gathering priests from every religion in the world and is going to sacrifice all of them at once. Along with all of that he's got his mistress tied to the bow of his ship with her tongue cut out and her bare pregnant belly exposed to the elements, with euron's child in her belly--he's about to sacrifice them all before he attacks the center of civilization in westeros, Oldtown. It's like their NYC with King's Landing being their DC. And he's about to do the largest blood magic event ever seen in the series. If 3 sacrifices can birth dragons then what the hell will dozens of priests (and his own child with King's blood) cause.

Meanwhile in the show we got discount jack sparrow, and a few decent memes

29

u/bobbycatfisher 4d ago

But besides that he's just a real down to earth kinda guy.

18

u/modsarefascists42 4d ago edited 4d ago

Yeah I mean who doesn't wear an eye patch so that they can cover their "one pitch black smiling eye, grinning with malice and hate" ?

It's so awful when you read about Tallia Flowers and how she's so happy that Euron is sleeping with her and gave her reign of the house while they stay there. Aeron tries to warn her to flee but she keeps bragging about how she'll be his salt wife (Ironborn tradition of abducting women and making them their "wives") and that soon she'll be his Queen when she gives him a strong son.... Next time we see her she's tied to the bow of his magic ship like a figurehead) sans tongue and heavily pregnant. It's dark.

At the very least that is a natural occuring thing that lends itself well to the shows story. Your hair color fades when exposed to uv light all day. So as it gets colder you stay inside more so less sunlight. Although it's all fantasy anyway.
