Daenerys Fan Challenge 1A. Favourite Moment.

A dragon is no slave.” And Dany swept the lash down as hard as she could across the slaver’s face. Kraznys screamed and staggered back, the blood running red down his cheeks into his perfumed beard. The harpy’s fingers had tom his features half to pieces with one slash, but she did not pause to contemplate the ruin. “Drogon,” she sang out loudly, sweetly, all her fear forgotten. “Dracarys.”

Imagine Bucky rescuing a dragon with the ability to change its size, from some testing facility. It just follows him around like a puppy and when Bucky wakes up shaking and screaming after a nightmare, the dragon is there to comfort him and lay on his stomach like a cat. When Bucky gets better and starts fighting alongside the Avengers, the dragon is there - Just 3 tons of angry teeth and claws plowing its way through enemies to help Bucky out of a sticky situation.


like, okay, he finds this really smooth blue stone on his way out after a mission, and he thinks nat will like it so he picks it up and takes it with him, except halfway home it starts to crack and shake and it gets warm to the touch but that’s okay because bucky has a metal hand that can’t feel heat so he holds the stone in his left hand and it breaks open !!

and then he gets back with a baby dragon wrapped around his neck and everyone just quietly watches him and he clears his throat and says “i wanted to bring nat home a pretty rock except it was an egg and i think it imprinted on me so now i have a dragon?”

tony is really worried that it’s going to destroy things except the baby (it’s a girl- bucky names her daenerys and the others nickname her “khaleesi, mother of all”) doesn’t seem to be able to breathe fire, and she just follows bucky around and steve and sam figure out that she likes to play fetch and clint introduces her to lucky and at night she curls up between nat and pepper because they know exactly where her favorite spots to be scratched are. she’s like a puppy. except she’s a dragon.

and, yeah, she curls up on top of bucky, which continues even when she gets too big. tony has to reinforce the bed so dany won’t keep breaking it.

the battle in question is a tight squeeze, and all hope is lost when all of a sudden an alien goon smacks bucky into the side of a building and they all hear a loud roaring and daenerys bursts out of the special hole tony had installed in case she ever got her wings to work properly (she’s still really young, even though she’s about half a ton) and she shoots at the aliens and just plows through them and sam just yells “KHALEESIIIIIIIIIIIII”

and when the smoke clears they find her curled protectively around bucky, one wing sheltering him from the worst of the rubble, and maybe having a dragon on their side isn’t such a bad thing after all.


Daenerys Challenge: Day 1 - (A) Favourite Moment or (B) Favourite Season

Daenerys: “This is dark magic, like the magic that took you from me. Took you from me before I could even… Maybe I am dead and I just don’t know it yet. Maybe I am with you in the Night Lands.” 

Khal: “Or maybe I refused to enter the Night Lands without you.”

Khal: “You are the moon of my life. That is all I know… and all I need to know… And if this is a dream. I will kill the man who tries to wake me.”

Daenerys: “Until the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. Until the rivers run dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves”

Kraznys: Tell the bitch her beast won’t come.

Daenerys: A dragon is not a slave.

Kraznys: You speak Valyrian?

Daenerys: I am Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyria. Valyrian is my mother tongue. Unsullied! Slay the masters, slay the soldiers, slay every man who holds a whip but harm no child. Strike the chains off every slave you see!

Kraznys: Kill her! Kill her! Kill her!

Daenerys: Dracarys.


Daenerys Targaryen challenge 

day 1/favorite moment

As Daenerys Targaryen rose to her feet, her black hissed, pale smoke venting from its mouth and nostrils. The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons.

Hello! I have a friend who solidly believes that "the younger and more beautiful queen" is Sansa, or maybe Margaery - because Sansa has already "taken away something Cersei holds dear - Joff." I feel like both are red herrings, and that Dany is the younger queen, but I can't seem to convince her. Any recs to book parts or meta on it? Or your own opinion (as I recall, you believe it's Dany)? Thanks (:

Well, there wouldn’t be any direct book parts on how Dany is Cersei’s “younger and more beautiful” queen, because, well, Dany hasn’t even met Cersei yet. (I don’t think Dany even knows Cersei exists, and Cersei barely knows Dany exists and really doesn’t care about her.) Which I think is the basic proof there, I mean:

“Queen you shall be… until there comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear.”

Is Cersei cast down yet? Technically, yes, but she’s coming back. Has all that she holds dear been taken from her yet? No. Joffrey may be dead, but Tommen and Myrcella are still alive, so I don’t think Sansa’s hairnet really counts (which Sansa did not choose to use, Olenna did) — and Margaery also doesn’t count. And it’s not just her children that Cersei holds dear — it’s her power, her possessions, her beauty, and even Jaime.

Also, the simple fact that Cersei suspects the younger queen is Margaery (and probably suspected Sansa when she was betrothed to Joffrey) should be proof that it is neither of them. (Just like Cersei believes Tyrion to be the valonqar, when it’s Jaime.) Sansa is also not yet a queen, nor is it definite that she ever will be. (I think Sansa will be in a position of power by series end, but not necessarily a queen, nor will it likely happen before Cersei dies.) But Dany is a queen, younger than Cersei, and arguably far more beautiful — she’s even been called the most beautiful woman in the world. And she is far more capable of casting Cersei down and taking all she holds dear than any other queen or potential queen in the series.

But the real point is not who the queen actually is, it’s that Cersei’s efforts to avert the prophecy are what will bring her downfall. It’s like Greek tragedies, like Oedipus, the very definition of literary irony. For more of this, see this post, and this tag, I’m not saying anything new here I’m afraid.
