"Oh, Tywin...rather strict and serious, he always had been. His father was a man who didn't take his duties and responsibilities seriously, therefore your grandfather swore not to make the same mistakes. He was proud and determined, but also reasonable and rational. He did what he did for his family's sake. And he did love his wife, that is certain. And his children. Although your uncle...your uncle was a different case."
"You look like her a lot, that is true. But then again, emerald eyes, golden hair...A lion is a lion, always. Do not worry, dear, I am certain that you are just as noble as she was. But to achieve greatness, you must follow your grandfather's example as well."
"Oh, I did know Lady Joanna, yes. She used to be a lady-in-waiting of mine when I was still a princess and they crowned my father. Joyful,she was,gentle and kind. Her patience knew no bounds. At their wedding, Lord Tywin even smiled. For weeks, it was the most mentioned gossip in court, for many refused to believe so. He grew even more serious once she had to leave for Casterly-Rock..." Rhaella stopped there and didn't continue. She would not spoil a young girl's memories by telling the horrid truth of what Aerys had done to Lady Joanna. "I enjoyed her company as well. Your father, on the other hand...he was a rather difficult young man."
A small shake of the head; - the Targaryen Queen barely knows a thing these days. "I'm afraid I am not much of a help, Lady Myrcella. Are you certain it is my side you wish to stay at? I am sorry for your loss,truly. It's hard enough to live in this world of ours, let alone for someone without a family. Your grandmother would be devastated. You do remind me of her. Poor Joanna, a gentle soul she had."
