The girl who shared the high seat with him was also of Highgarden: his young queen, Margaery, daughter to Lord Mace Tyrell…the girl no older than Robb, very pretty, with a doe’s soft eyes and a mane of curling brown hair that fell about her shoulders in lazy ringlets. Her smile was shy and sweet.

The Mountain and the Viper - The Trial of Tyrion Lannister

There were fifty yards between them. Prince Oberyn advanced quickly, Ser Gregor more ominously. The Red Viper stopped and called out, “Have they told you who I am?”

Ser Gregor grunted through his breaths. “Some dead man.”

“I am Oberyn Martell, a prince of Dorne. Princess Elia was my sister.“

"Who?”

“Elia Martell, Princess of Dorne. You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children.”

“Did you come to talk or to fight?”

“I came to hear you confess.” The Red Viper landed a quick thrust on the Mountain’s belly, to no effect. Gregor cut at him, and missed. The long spear lanced in above his sword. Oberyn was making good use of that, and the length of his spear, and his quickness.

“You raped her,” he called, feinting. “You murdered her,” he said, dodging a looping cut from Gregor’s greatsword. “You killed her children,” he shouted, slamming the spearpoint into the giant’s throat.

The Mountain reeled, swayed, then collapsed face first on the ground. His huge sword went flying from his hand. Slowly, ponderously, he rolled onto his back.

“EEEEELLLLLLIIIIIAAAAA!” Oberyn screamed, as he drove the spear down with the whole weight of his body behind it. “If you die before you say her name, ser, I will hunt you through all seven hells,” he promised. Tyrion saw with horror that the Mountain had wrapped one huge arm around the prince, drawing him tight against his chest.

“Elia of Dorne,” they all heard Ser Gregor say “I smashed her fucking head in. Like this.“ Ellaria Sand wailed in terror, and Tyrion’s breakfast came boiling back up while the Mountain himself collapsed. Tyrion was sentenced to die. I put my life in the Red Viper’s hands, and he dropped it.

Game of Thrones Season 8 AU: When the army of the Night King approached the walls of Winterfell, the Queen let the defense of the castle, since her knight-sister was away. Lady Sansa, being a skilled politician, appeared to be no warrior. In the crucial moment her only salvation was her cousin.

Westeros. Home. But if she left, what would happen to her city? Meereen was never your city, her brother’s voice seemed to whisper. Your cities are across the sea. Your Seven Kingdoms, where your enemies await you. You were born to serve them blood and fire.

Daenerys, A Dance with Dragons

The voices in her head are the ones that speak the truth. Dark Dany locked and loaded. Jon will go to war against ice and fire.

Why Winterfell will fall: Season 8 - Dragon Dream Theory

For those that don’t know, Dragon dreams affect those with the blood of the dragon, who are known to have premonition-like dream ability - they are no ordinary dreams. They often involve dragons but not always.

Daenerys’ namesake, Daenys had a prophetic dream about the destruction of Valyria. House Targaryen of Old Valyria fled to Dragonstone, and soon after, the Doom of Valyria occured. 

Maester Aemon’s brothers were all plagued with dragon dreams, but a lot of them died young because they tried to bring back dragons. 

We know these dreams can be prophetic, but they don’t necessarily tell the future. That being said, some dragon dreams have given insight into the future, like Daenerys’ dreams before her dragons hatched. 

HERE IS WHERE MY THEORY BEGINS:

  • The end of Game of Thrones will have to be weaved together in one final wrap. Meaning, all characters will have to clash together when the long night comes. As a student of Filmmaking and writing, I know the show runners aren’t going to keep Cersei isolated from the other plots, same goes with the Night King and Jon/Tyrion/Dany etc… All of their stories have to merge together, and the way that makes most sense is to bring them literally Geographically closer.                                           
  • SO HERE IS WHERE DRAGON DREAMS COME IN: In A Storm of Swords, Before the sack of Astapor, Daenerys has a Dragon Dream:

“That night she dreamt she was Rhaegar, riding to the Trident. But she was mounted on a dragon, not a horse. When she saw the Usurper’s rebel host across the river they were armored all in ice, but she bathed them in dragonfire and they melted away like dew and turned the Trident into a torrent. Some small part of her knew that she was dreaming, but another part exulted. This is how it was meant to be.”

In Dany’s dream, she mounts her dragon to the Trident (Where Robert killed Rhaegar), and she fights an army dressed in ice. Meaning the White Walkers. 

The Theory is that sometime before/after Jon & Dany arrive North, the Night King will take over the North. It may be that Bran warns them and they all march south, or that they fight in battle and lose. Either way, the land will be taken by the army of the dead. I’m favoring that the North will fall before Jon & Dany arrive, because at least then they still have untouched armies that will fight the final battle. This theory makes more sense because its already too late to save the North, but not the rest of the country. Southern armies (Maybe Lannister) will march to the Riverlands in time for the final battle that will take place in The Trident. This makes sense because it gives the show time to gather up all the characters to finish their stories together. 

Personally I think the living will win, but because it is Game of Thrones, I’m betting someone REALLY important might die. 

Oh well, Valar Morghulis, thanks for reading! Let me know if you think this theory is plausible!

Oberyn Martell!

So I started messing around with a new brush recently and tried for a sketchy kind of look. Base sketch in second photo of the set, and detail in third. Hope you like it!
