    [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    I like it!

    Is House Blackfyre really extinct on the male line?

    Well, you know I have a thing for Lysono.

    Is House Blackfyre really extinct on the male line?

    I am not so sure... There are plenty of officers in the Golden Company of low and/or illegitimate birth. But I would certainly agree that illegitimate descent from Daemon (or Bittersteel for that matter) would require more than just the Blackfyre blood. It would require some skill at arms and/or other valued utility. Legitimate descent along the female line, though...

    Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

    The George introduced Aegon on a POLE boat!

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    Absolutely!

    Young Griff: What do we really know?

    He's a black dragon. There was always going to be a second dance, and the George developed the Blackfyre backstory to give Daenerys someone to fight.

    A New Husband for Catelyn

    Any Riverlands lord or heir, not already wed. Lord Jason of Seagard would have been ideal.

    Golden Company Exiles

    Jon Connington is obviously important, and Homeless Harry is too since he commands, at least nominally, one the single most powerful military forces currently in Westeros. Haldon Halfmaester and Lysono Maar are playing important roles too.

    f/Aegon's Fate, Reborn

    I like it! But I like this better.

    What happens if Euron sacks Oldtown?

    I could see Rhaegal getting mixed up with that horn for the time being, but I got a silver stag says Tyrion will help Brown Ben become a dragon lord.

    What happens if Euron sacks Oldtown?

    All that would make for wonderful tension, which is the lifeblood of storytelling, no?

    What happens if Euron sacks Oldtown?

    He wouldn't be the first dragon to take more than one bride.

    Why did Stannis marry Selyse Florent?

    Other than Tyrell and Hightower are there any houses in the Reach that we know could field (raise and sustain) more than, say 4,000 men, including about 450 knights?

    Why did Stannis marry Selyse Florent?

    No, I was pointing out that House Florent was nearly as powerful as House Karstark, which was one of the most powerful components of Robb's army.

    What happens if Euron sacks Oldtown?

    Mummers, like the George, set cloth dragons to dancing on poles to give their heroes something to fight. I think most readers expect Daenerys and Aegon to be enemies when they meet, but I suspect Tyrion, the George's favorite character, had the right of it. Daenerys will come to Aegon's aide when he is hardest pressed, and I suspect that Euron will be doing the pressing. The two dragons (black or red, a dragon is still a dragon) will wed to cement their alliance. Euron will not stand a chance with Daenerys riding the black one, Aegon riding the green one, and Brown Ben riding the white one.
