I must confess that I understand.
I must also confess that you've sent me in to a small panic and I feel the need to beg you not to leave.
Oh don't worry, I could never leave! Someone
has to defend Dany and the Jon/Dany ship! /tongue.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' />
I confess i find Fandom Rage to be a bit silly. Cant we all just get along?[/Rodney King]
Nope. I just genuinely cannot get along with everyone in this fandom. There was once a time when I was a sweet summer child and I wished I could... but now I don't even want to. Some of the people in this fandom are just awful.
I remember reading a thread on another forum about ASOIAF, and an adult man called Sansa, who has only just became a teenager, a "cunt". So yeah, there are just some people in this fandom that I will never get along with, nor would I ever want to.
There is a huge difference between not liking a character and actively being nasty, offensive, rude, or just seeking to enrage their fans.
It's only because she has dragons, and I'm saying this a Dany fangirl.
I'm specifically referring to her ADwD chapters after she's locked the dragons away, and she still possesses authority over her advisers. They know that she wants to be loved, but they also know what she's capable of -- Astapor and the crucifixions.
Of course the dragons play a huge role in the development of her authoritative persona... But I think it's clear that Dany is still an authoritative figure even without the dragons. The problem is that she doesn't want to be a "monster", so she represses it and it manifests itself in short outbursts.
