Cersei Lannister/Jaime Lannister, also known as Lannicest, is the het and incestuous pairing of Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones fandom. They have a canonical relationship.

if a person wants to understand Jaime's complexity, they need to accept the major impact of his love for Cersei. They have many ups and downs, sure, but to me they are the most interesting couple of the series.[1]

Canon

At the beginning of the series Jaime and Cersei have been in a prolonged romantic relationship that has resulted in three children, Joffery, Myrcella and Tommen. Although, Cersei is married to King Robert Baratheon, and he believes the children are his. Ned Stark discovers the true parentage of the children, but he is beheaded before he can reveal the secret. Cersei and Jaime are separated for some time during the War of the Five Kings, because Jaime is captured by Robb Stark. After he returns to King's Landing they resume their relationship. Jaime is supportive of Cersei, even though he does not always agree with her actions. In Season 7 when the threat of the White Walkers is revealed Cersei pledges to help, but backs out of that promise. Jaime disagrees and says he means to keep his word, and they separate.
