oliewankanobe Posted June 22, 2012 Share Posted June 22, 2012 I nosed around and found discussions about the "moment" when Rhaegar reads something in a scroll in instantly declares he must become a warrior.Ok.A few pages later, Dany says she will listen to everyone who speaks to her (after being cautioned to take things with a grain of salt-- or "well salted). At the end of that paragraph we get this:"She had read that in a book."Same chapter, a few days later, she is playing with her dragons when Mormont shows up convincing her she can't trust anyone, she should change course, etc. He then admits he has been very dishonestly scoping out the hold and counting everyone's wealth for his own purposes (he claims for Dany, but BS). She, a in typical childish turn, completely ignores all of her own questioning in response to him, declares his hairbrained scheme is genius, and immediately decides to put it into effect...Then they make out. WTF??? Um, grow a crown, there, Khaleesi, and slap his face... then have him gelded.While I never trusted Mormont-- in fact, I can't think of any non-Dothraki I DO trust around Dany-- this really had me scratching my head. Is Martin telling us not to trust what we read? Is he implying that some prophesies are dragon poop? It feels like he's underscoring how Rhaegar went from a "bookish" kid who was well liked to an utter scumbucket after believing a prophecy. Dany talks about how she will listen to all, that she read it in a book, and promptly gets turned in too many directions by too many men... then makes out with Mormont, who is constantly checking her out in an über creepy way.Am I smoking something?
