Hardstone Posted November 28, 2013 Share Posted November 28, 2013 But then the story fails depict the non-death of Rhaenyra's son Viserys. One can guess how they came to believe he died, but since that would be a major event for Gyldayn one would really think that he would have mention it. He spent a lot of time depicting Jace's death.We only can deduce that Viserys is dead from the fact that Aegon the Younger is repeatedly called Rhaenyra's last surviving son. For all we know he may also have 'died' after the sea battle We also don't get any hint on the whereabouts of Lady Rhaena Targaryen. She went to the Vale of Arryn with Joffrey Velaryon, but we don't really know if she came back with him or not (my guess is not, and there are good reasons for that theory, but if that's the case then it should have been mentioned in the story). The becomes an even greater problem with the various battles and battle commanders that are mentioned. The story would have profited greatly from a more thorough editing on these parts. Say, for instance, by just mentioning that people fought there and which side won. Instead of not properly introducing characters and expecting people to know that Ruddy the Ruin is (or may be) Lord Roderick Dustin. I'm seeing the theory; Rhaena of Pentos was given three eggs. The first time we see dragon eggs in the main series, it was in Pentos.Aye, Roderick was introduced as Roddy the Ruin and the Winter Wolves, then as Roderick Dustin in a later paragraph, then as Roddy the Ruin again and it wasn't until Roderick and Winter Wolves were in the same sentence that I thought; same guy!Good to see you're up to date, Lord Varys. I enjoyed reading your posts in the other TPQ thread before the release. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
