Daenerys saves everyone, but who saves Daenerys?

But, you make the same excuse for it that slave masters have always made. If people did "have a steady life" as slaves, nobody would ever have to use violence to keep slaves in line.  That's not true either in canon, or in real life.

Fair enough...

....but you are taking it out of context. Let me finish it for you.

 just that Dany was lazy after freeing them. Just fantasizing about Daario and moaning and whining about how the freed former slaves were suffering again did nothing to help them.

She should have and could have done more for the freed slaves. The End.

She did a lot more than that.

Let's just agree to disagree, shall we?

Daenerys Targaryen is actually on the rise.  She is about to achieve what no other person has been able to do.  She and her people are about to put an end to slavery. 

She has been saved many times already by people close to her (Bloodriders, Barristan, Jorah, Willem) as well as by her mighty dragons.  Moiraine has a good point.  Just how many times will she have to play the role of the person in peril.  She has played that role often enough.  The plot going forward will see this young heroine blossoming into the great leader who will see this world through the Long Night and build the foundations for civilization to come back.  We have seen the debacle caused by those in leadership positions in the west.  Leaders, like Robert, Robb Stark, Jon Snow, Balon, who brought Westeros to the sorry ass state that it is currently in.  What the novel and the plot calls for is the arrival of Daenerys to sort out the mess they created.

Daenerys will not need to be saved. To take her story in that direction will only fall in line with the "damsel that needs saving" trope.  The boy saves the girl is not an interesting story. A much better story is that of a strong and intelligent young lady, which she is, winning the game of thrones by beating the boys.  We have seen the boys failing miserably already.  Look at the failures of Jon Snow, Robert, Robb Stark, and Quentyn.  

Yup, the last thing we need is the failure of another leader.  That is just too damn pessimistic.  This is a coming of age story and it is Dany's time to rise and blossom into the fine leader she was meant to be.
