Mrmanakan Posted April 13, 2013 Share Posted April 13, 2013 "I don't think you have to be a Targaryen to ride a dragon.  After all, the Targaryens were not the only family in Valyria.  Heck, given the evidence we have it appears the Targaryens were either not very well respected or even exiled from Valyria."If I remember right the targarayens were the ruling family of valaria and that a part of the family (Aegon and his sisters part) was exiled before the fall. Atleast that was my impression from the little tidbits given. I'd imagine at that point the targarayens were probably a huge family and that valyria was also old so there was most likely many branches of targaryens. I believe the blood is important, although Bran maybe able to contradict this with his warging. The dragons know who Dany is, does she? Martins made "the blood of the dragon" seem like its a big deal and her being of old valyria and all that. My theory is bran will be able to maybe warg the dragons but he'll never ride one. That's why I liked the R+L=J so much but now he's dead atleast ATM. Dany is totally one of the main protagonists but I feel like they're multiple protagonists, tyrion is just as important as Dany and bran may prove to be the same, although I feel like he's getting played or something sketchy is going on in that story line....I.e. cold hands was basically a whitewalker. And they're playing into Brans dreams and ambitions as he is young and easy to manipulate. Anyways dany's story (minus the redudance of her sittin on daario's cock or mereense cock in general in dwd) is fascinating and her last chapter in dwd made me yearn for more. In fact her chapters in the next book are the ones I'm anticipating the most. I have a feeling it'll be her going to vaes dothrak before back to mereen. She will prove her strength to the khalasar and finally have her true khalasar, she has to goto asshai too in this book, I'd imagine...atleast theyve been hinting at that for uh 4 books now, well I guess 3 (bc of feast for crows). Anyways long story short targaryens and dragons are linked like Starks to the north (trees and animals) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
