This is how I would've fixed the Ice and Fire meeting

Recommended Posts

So in the show, Jon and Dany's relationship seems rushed. Nothing really happened between those two in terms of bonding. So if you want it rushed, just make it a political alliance not "love at first sight" bullshit. So this is how i would've fixed it.

- Have Bran influence Jon and Dany into meeting each other. 

For those who haven't read the books, Boodraven (The-Three-Eyed-Raved) supposedly wargs a NW raven and influences Jon's decisions. We could've had something like this happen to Jon in S7, Bran warging a raven or show him dreams of dragons destroying the White Walkers. or even show him Dany, how she saved the salves or smth like that.

Same thing for Dany too, Bran could've done the same thing to her, show her dreams of White Walkers or Jon. He could've warged a raven or even a person.

What do you guys think?

It would give Bran something to do instead of being a dick to Sansa and Meera and being Mr. CCTV.

You say it seemed rushed but it basically took the whole season to happen. You also say that they had nothing bond them? They spoke together and took stock of each other. She sought out his advice to see if he had beliefs about ruling similar to hers. He met her "children" and it bonded with him, something a mother would see as a huge sign. She saw how he puts his people first. Then he went north of the wall to get proof to show Cersei of the threat, putting himself at great risk. During this one of her children died and Jon nearly died. He declared himself to her cause. How much more bonding could have happened? Why toss in some random match making by Bran?

It would give Bran something to do for a start, and yes, they shared some scenes but they didn't talk about each other at all. There was one attempt at REAL bonding when Dany asked him about the knife in the heart but Jon shut her down. They didn't know anything about each other. The sex scenes basically came out of nowhere.

Maybe Bran likes watching stuff like this?... Just as he thought Sansa's first night with Ramsay was.

You say the sex scene came out of no where? Both Davos and Missande (i think) made comments to them about the other one, they both were seen on screen checking each other out.She even mentioned him to Tyrion in regards to romance when she said he was too short for her. Then they go through traumatic voyage together where she loses a child and he almost dies. When she is with him in her room and he holds her hand there is an obvious connection. Then they deal with Cersei and on the way back North they have sex. In real time that would have been about a month after meeting if not more? Plenty of time to form feelings and to know the other person is also attracted to you.

This, a thousand times. Bran's the 'three eyed raven' now, and he was sent dreams by the last one, so why can't he send out some mental emails himself?

Lol. Bran is now Denny from the Room.

Bran: I just like to watch you guys.

Alas, it's not characterisation when another character blatantly says 'Character X sure has this trait, doesn't he?'

That's telling, not showing, and clunky telling at that.
