You might want to change the title from "interesting" to "enlightening". Or perhaps "illuminating" is the better word.

 

Good stuff.

Just stick Stannis in the title too, that is always a draw.

Yeah, especially if you make the title refer to Stannis' shadowbaby killing of Renly.

That shakes the nuts out of the trees like nothing else.

Perhaps she felt like she was failing because she actually legallized slavery, wasnt close to find the harpy and sold her body for some more calm days?

She didnt fail she brought peace to meereen, Drogon's appearance is what changed everything.

Interesting essay, disagree with most of it(sorry btc, still love you though brah), but interesting nonetheless. Different perspectives are always good. 

 

Also there are allot of posts about Stannis in a thread about an essay on Dany, cute.

The saddes part is that I did enter this thread after reading Stannis on the tittle :(

 

Good essay, I don't agree 100% with it (neither with the first part about the shavepate) but it is a really good look at the Meereenese knot, and if true, it may change my mind about Dany's storyline from horrible to just boring :P
