Were you disappointed because:
gold was in a pile, and not some other shape or form?
it was a pile of gold, and not some other material?
you saw something / there was something, where you expected nothing?
a pile of gold was used as a symbol for something, where a better symbol may have been used?

Was it owwned privately? This is actually a pretty tricky question, but privately is the best answer. by government? in a museum? an art gallery? was the pile debris?
Were you disappointed because:
gold was in a pile, and not some other shape or form?
it was a pile of gold, and not some other material?
you saw something / there was something, where you expected nothing? Yesish, explore this more!
a pile of gold was used as a symbol for something, where a better symbol may have been used?
Tywin Lannister relevant? Any Lannisters at all?
No to rest.

for anyone scratching their heads and going 'who's Tywin Lannister?' Tywin Lannister is a character from G.R.R. Martin's "A Song Of Ice And Fire" series, also known (because of its TV adaptation) by the name of its first book, "Game of Thrones". Tywin is the ridiculously wealthy Lord of Casterly Rock in Westeros (he's got more money than King Robert) and his daughter Cersei is the Queen. Tywin has two sons, Jaime and Tyrion. Tyrion is more awesome. =) The Lannister symbol is a lion and their family motto is "Hear Me Roar", but their unofficial, better known motto is "A Lannister always pays his debts." So now you know. =D

And now that I know a little more about Tywin Lannister, I can say that he is, in fact, slightly relevant. But that could be misleading.

Was the gold in bars? nuggets? dust? Not relevant, say it was in bars.
One ton of small, unmarked bars, to be exact...er, don't mind me, Artemis Fowl fangirl passing through ;D.

Was it a gold tooth filling? No, very lateral idea though.
And welcome to the forum, Hardcore!

State/Country/Content/Planet relevant? No, but the location was yopishly relevant. The pile was smaller than you had hoped? Real gold? This. Fake gold? Hollow gold bars? And not this.
There's one important aspect of this puzzle that you have left to find out, and should help enormously towards finding the solution.

Gold jewelry? Gold coins? White gold? Pure gold? Doesn't particularly matter, focus less on the gold. It could theoretically have been a pile of cream cheese or platinum or, well, anything, and still have disappointed me.

Looks like this puzzle is dead.
**********SPOILER**********

I was disappointed, though unsurprised, when I saw the pile of gold.
In the puzzle, I meet a character from a book series. Of course, I am very excited about this, when the thought hits me-it could all be a dream. I then realize that if it is a dream, then knowing it is a dream makes it a lucid dream and allows me to manipulate it. So I try and make a pile of gold appear. If it does, I'm dreaming, if it doesn't, it's the real world. Of course, it does appear, and I am left very disappointed, though unsurprised, that I am only meeting the character in a dream.
And, off topic, 'not last night but the night before' I posted the puzzle, I had a dream in which, no, I didn't meet a book character, but I did have a dream in which I had ANOTHER dream, and the dream-within-a-dream was a lucid dream. I was very confused when I woke up.
