  1. Rheagar's "sword" was lightbringer. He tried unsuccesfully with Elia Martel. Lyanna was his Nissa Nissa. When he plunged his lightbringer into her she died and AA/tPtwP(Jon) was reborn.

    I don't think you have to be a Targaryen to ride a dragon. After all, the Targaryens were not the only family in Valyria. Heck, given the evidence we have it appears the Targaryens were either not very well respected or even exiled from Valyria. If there is a bloodline requirement to ride a dragon, i think one would simply need to be of Valyrian descent. I doubt legitimacy would matter either, since that doesn't change the blood. Also a greenseer/warg might be able to overcome not having Valyrian blood and still bond with/ride a dragon. I think Dany is being set up to be an antagonist to Westeros. The dragons are here weapons and will be pretty monstrous. They are an embodiment of magic and magic is a "hiltless sword". They bring chaos and ultimately can't be completely controlled, as seen already with Drogon eating the children from that village. Dany's only answer was to take him and fly off into the wilderness away from people. That's not really possible in Westeros. That being said, I think I remember reading somewhere that GRRM said that the literal Dragons were added as an afterthought. Am I completely off base on this? If this is true, I can't see them being the ultimate super weapon, the key to defeating the WW/others, lightbringer, etc. While GRRM could certainly have altered the story to give the dragons a bigger significance, i just can't help but view them as a huge red herring.

    I was thinking she would kill him as Arya Stark, not as a FM hit. And she has a lot of reasons to kill LF. He is holding her sister hostage/molesting her, is responsible for her father's death, her aunt's death, and was in on the plot behind her mother and brother's deaths.

    I see a lot of parallels with the Covenant series. Theon's character arc has reminded me a lot of Thomas Covenant. (he's even losing body parts) Then there is also the Berek Halfhand == Quorin Halfhand + Jon Snow (after he burns his sword hand) Kevan Landwaster + Berek + Thomas the white gold weilder== PtwP, Azor Ahai etc. Lord Foul = great other. Lord Foul's minions are called cave wights.
