oberyn who was so ripped apart by his need for revenge, for more than just death but vengeance that he died seeking it
oberyn who died happy because he would have heard gregor admit it, because he heard gregor say her name
oberyn who left behind eight daughters who would rip the realm apart for his memory
oberyn who died with the ashes of what he sought in his mouth
oberyn who didn’t care if he died, and had put the final plans in place long before it came to that
oberyn who gave the most painful, drawn out deaths to those who he thought deserved it and would have been pleased in a twisted way that his own death was swift
oberyn who was cruel and half-mad and not your revenge fantasy
oberyn who got everything he wanted in life and abandoned those who loved him most to pick up the pieces after him, for the memory of his sister
oberyn the nuanced brilliant character
i think you really fail to understand my love for this character - and why i ship oberyn and elia so much - and that it will be the only pairing in asoiaf i will ever ship - gosh elia just shaped who oberyn came to be for the whole of his life -from his childhood playing in the pools with elia play fighting with him - with elia accepting her fate as the wife of a targaryen while oberyn was only worried for her safety - with elia murdered raped and dishonoured while oberyn was not there to defend the only woman he could truly love - with elia’s name living on through his curses for vengeance - elia played a huge part in oberyn’s identity way before her death unlike some people believe - she overshadows any other woman in his life and ellaria the love of his love understands and respects that - but could not understand the mad desire for venegeance which drove him to his death - the only one who could understand was elia - but she was dead anyway -so who was there to reason with a madman like oberyn? - no one - oh gosh this is so painful for me :( - THE MARTELLS ARE COMING AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT - oberyn martell - got (tags via oberynmahtell because i’m not okay and this is fucking perfect)

“Yes, but you are here now, and in some difficulty, I would say. Your innocence may be as plain as the scar on your face, but it will not save you. No more than your father will.” The Dornish prince smiled. “But I might.” “You?” Tyrion studied him. “You are one judge in three. How could you save me?” “Not as your judge. As your champion.”
We’re gonna get that show back on the air, buddy.
At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead.The hard thing is finding the courage to do it.
