    Jon and Daeneris

    I'm really enjoying the Jon-Dany dynamic despite the fact that I typically hate romances and mushy stuff. However, this being GoT, you know there will be plenty of tragedy surrounding them, and the chance of them getting a "happily ever after" is slim to none. I think Kit and Emilia have wonderful chemistry I've enjoyed the slow burn building between Dany and Jon. (Well, as slow as you can get given that this entire season has felt rushed -- thanks a lot, D&D.) I didn't care for him calling her Dany -- that was jarring, and an obvious fan service -- but the rest of the scene on that ship conveyed a wistful, bittersweet emotion flowing between these two. At this point they have started to realize they have feelings for each other, but neither knows quite how to deal with it. They're in the middle of two major wars and it's difficult to drop all that and say, "Hey! Let's explore our feelings!" So yes, they've been fighting it and choosing to ignore the elephant in the room. It also seems like it's the first real, grownup romance for each of them. Don't get me wrong: Dany loved Drogo, and Jon loved Ygritte -- but they were both little more than children at the time. (Daario, I'd argue, was a rebound romance and mostly just a sexual one.) Since then, each of them has experienced a tremendous amount of personal growth. So now we're dealing with two adults having adult feelings and the potential to create a powerful pairing that not only is a practical one but is also based on love (certainly a rarity, at least in Westeros). And of course it will most likely be blown out of the water by the revelation that Jon is a Targaryan. This little bombshell has potential to turn the world upside down for both of them. Jon would feel enraged and betrayed that his whole life has been nothing but a lie. I can see him having an issue with the incest aspect, too, because he's a bit of a prude. Dany most likely would not care a whit about the incest, but would she feel threatened knowing that Jon has a more legitimate claim to the throne than she has? Her whole life, she has been convinced that she's destined to rule the Seven Kingdoms. She's SO close ... and then the rug gets yanked out from under her. It has to be a sucker punch. I don't see Jon as being power hungry at all, but would this cause Dany to be suspicious of him? Then again, if there's a baby (and I think that's very likely given the heavy foreshadowing), perhaps that might be enough to convince them to overcome these issues and stay together. Which means that probably one or both will die before the end of the series.

    Nice! I'll look forward to seeing them put in an appearance.

    I'm a total dog nut. We have three mixed breed dogs: two were adopted from the shelter and the third showed up as a stray. Molly - she's the alpha. I think she might have some Basenji in her. She has pointy ears and a corkscrew tail. She's too smart for her own good but she's getting cranky in her old age. Luka - my big baby boy. He's a Belgian Malinois-American Eskimo mix. He's very gentle, but a little shy and skittish. Bagel - our newest addition. She looks like a Beagle-Dachsund mix and she's a snuggle bunny. Today she ran her first race - a 5K Turkey Trot - with me. She did great!

    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    I adore Robson & Jerome... So gloriously cheesy, and they look like they're having so much fun in these videos. And this video is pretty clever, actually. Hats off to them. I just finished watching the "Ripper Street" season 1 episode guest starring Iain Glen as Drake's (Jerome Flynn) former commanding officer. It's a bit jarring seeing the two of them together outside Westeros.

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Well spank my ass and call me Sally! I had no idea D&D had posted in this forum. Kind of a bummer they don't come around anymore.
