ApKing06 Posted October 24, 2013 Share Posted October 24, 2013 I see what you're saying. Do we have any proof that Targaryens are immune to sickness, however? Daeron II died because of sickness, and so did Prince Valarr and Prince Matarys. And all the other Targaryen kings who died young, like Jaehaerys, or Aenys, how about them? Did most certainly did not die in battle, so what else killed them? Indeed he was drowning, and he swallowed a lot of water, but did Lemore force the water from Tyrions lungs. When you are drowning, I'm not sure how much water actually goes into your lungs, and how much water goes into your digestive system (like water should go). I did a quick Wikipedia search on drowning, and it seems that most water actually goes into your stomach, and only very little goes into your lungs. However, since Lemore has been said to have forced the water from Tyrions lungs, I am inclined to believe that Tyrion had more water in his lungs than one usually does when drowning. My conclusion: I'm really not sure, though if you would like to read it, here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drowning#Water_inhalation So again, JonCon must have gotten the disease from saving Tyrion, how else would he have gotten it? It might be that Tyrions immune system is better than JonCon's, and perhaps that was a factor in why Tyrion didn't get sick. And I have read before that many people say that Targaryens cannot get sick, but I can't remember reading anything about that. I am interested in reading it though, so perhaps you could provide some links to threads or explain the theory yourself? :) I recall Dany saying something to the effect that her brother always told her that they were immune to certain sicknesses . I believe it was when they were dealing with the people who were sick from the pale mare where she started helping men clean up the dead and the unsullied followed her. I like the story line. It also clicks very well and solves a multitude of problems for him. As far as clicking: We know Tyrion has always been fascinated by dragons since childhood and has had dreams of dragons. His father hates him! as only the husband of a raped wife could hate. The mismatched black eye could be a clue as well. As far as helping him out: It gives Dany a reason to take him in (and seriously, if Tyrion is ever honestly able to tell Dany the tale of woe his life has been as a Lannister she most certainly will take him in), it also means that Tywin was not his father and therefore not a kinslayer. Furthermore, in the future the false accusations of being a kingslayer would be looked at as fighting for his house and killing a false king/usurper if the Targaryens come to rule again. Personally, I hope this works out this way for Tyrion. Tyrion drinks and whores because his family has been awful to him but somehow he has remained a good person at heart.
