“jaime always said that the hardest part of any battle is just before, waiting for the carnage to begin. when she stepped outside, cersei saw that the sky was grey.”
(a feast for crows, chapter 35) 

this is the most telling quote #the lannister twins are not made for peacetime #jaime is wasted when he’s not swinging a sword and cersei is unable to conceptualize the court as anything but a battlefield #that’s why she implodes the way she does in feast for crows #she’s been fighting all her life #the rules of the battle are the rules of society #and those don’t go away just because her family is winning the war #peace is for compromise and diplomacy and she sees those as nothing but surrender #so she refuses #she brings the battle back to her #her sword never stops swinging even when the only person she’s hacking at is herself#she gets her throne and she burns the land around her just when she should be building it up #but she has no conception of a world that would allow her to stop
