Men would rather garner support behind a 2-year old Aegon II rather than a fully grown Rhaenyra for the sole reason that he is male. The Dream of Spring is the return of the goddess and making women equal to men in all things. THAT is what would bring true balance into the world. What if we exchanged "female divine" for "Children of the Forest"? Maester Luwin: The female divine is gone from this world, and their wisdom with them. Bran and Leaf's exchange regarding the long dwindling of the Children: Bran: Where is the female divine? Leaf: Gone down into the earth … Into the stones, into the trees. Before the First Men came all this land that you call Westeros was home to the female divine, yet even in those days we were few. The gods gave us long lives but not great numbers, lest we overrun the world as deer will overrun a wood where there are no wolves to hunt them. That was in the dawn of days, when our sun was rising. Now it sinks, and this is our long dwindling. The giants are almost gone as well, they who were our bane and our brothers. The great lions of the western hills have been slain, the unicorns are all but gone, the mammoths down to a few hundred. The direwolves will outlast us all, but their time will come as well. In the world that men have made, there is no room for them, or us. Bran thinks to himself: Men would not be sad. Men would be wroth. Men would hate and swear a bloody vengeance. The singers sings sad songs, where men would fight and kill. Edited September 14, 2022 by Melifeather Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
