Cersei gathered up her skirts and dignity. "This must be very frightening for you. I shall forgive those words."

's contest ASOIAF: The Bechdel Test [link]
, asking to depict "two or more women interacting in any of the scenes from the books".
With this, I believe I've drawn Cersei more than any other ASOIAF character
As for Margaery, I firmly believe in the theory she will turn out more evil than Cersei, and that this scene is only a foreshadowing of what she's capable of.
As always, I tried to be quite faithful, so Margaery was "barefoot and shivering, clad in the roughspun shift of a novice sister". Her cell had "no furnishings but a straw-stuffed pallet and a bench for prayer, a ewer of water, a copy of The Seven-Pointed Star
, and a candle to read it by. The only window was hardly wider than an arrow slit."
Cersei was dressed with a brown, "soft woolen dress that covered her from throat to ankle, with only a few small vines embroidered on the bodice and the sleeves in golden thread".
Beside that, the "sky was grey and bleak", therefore in Margaery's cell there wouldn't be much light, even if it's morning.
For the basis, I followed *pettrybyos
