Hey there, I ship Reylo big time and I’m looking for some more blogs to follow, and some followers as well since this blog is brand new. Obv I post a lot of Reylo, but my interests include: The new Ghostbusters flick, Game of Thrones (show and books), and Star Wars in general. Suicide Squad and Star Trek may pop up as well when I see them on my dash. If you like any of these, please like/reblog and feel free to follow!
BTW, characters who do have freckles, in case you’re interested: Brienne of Tarth; Rohanne Webber;
Horas, Hobber, Desmera, and Bethany Redwyne;
Sylva Santagar; Anguy; Mycah; Barra’s mother; Dancy; various unnamed others.
With the episode Battle of the Bastards showing a (possibly) very different battle of fire in Mereen, I'm beginning to rethink the three heads of the dragon. I'm starting to think they're not all dragon riders. That since Dany is their mother, why should she just give her children away to whoever? Just because in the past they had a specific rider? No one has ever had more than one hatchling at once that I can remember. Do you think she'll just control them like in the show or was Jorah right?
“I’m starting to think [the three heads of the dragon are] not all dragon riders.” Nobody ever said they were. At least not in the books. I mean, I do think the other two of the three heads of the dragon will be dragonriders, eventually, and will bond with Viserion and Rhaegal, but they will probably spend a lot of time not riding dragons beforehand. (I’m not sure we’ll even see Jon or Tyrion riding dragons in TWOW – it may be an ADOS thing only.) I also believe there will be dragonriders who are not the three heads of the dragon. (Victarion, maybe; Euron, probably; maybe Aegon if the dragons don’t kill him first, so there can be an actual Second Dance of the Dragons; maybe others.) But the other two heads of the dragon will be the last and true riders of Viserion and Rhaegal.
Dany knows she cannot ride all three of her dragons.
“My children have grown wild and angry in the dark.” “You… you mean to ride them?”
“One of them. All I know of dragons is what my brother told me when I
was a girl, and some I read in books, but it is said that even Aegon the
Conqueror never dared mount Vhagar or Meraxes, nor did his sisters ride
Balerion the Black Dread. Dragons live longer than men, some for
hundreds of years, so Balerion had other riders after Aegon died… but no
rider ever flew two dragons.”
—ADWD, Daenerys VIII
This is the scene where she’s showing her bound dragons to Quentyn Martell, to test him, to see if he likes dragons / the dragons like him, because “my marriage need not be the end of all your hopes”, because she believes the other two heads of the dragon will be her husbands, because she very likely believes they must be dragonriders as well. Quentyn did not pass this test (and certainly not later, when he tried to tame a dragon to prove he was still worthy), but if Dany sees a man who does ride one of her dragons, she almost certainly will wonder if he is one of the three heads / someone she should marry. Whether she will be correct in this belief (dragonrider = a head of the dragon = her husband), fully or even partially, we will just have to see.
Also, since we’ve seen nearly all of the Battle of Fire in the two Barristan and two Tyrion preview TWOW chapters that have been released/read, we know for a fact that yes, it will be extremely different from the show. Dany’s not there, man, the dragons are wild. Barristan’s leading an army attacking the Yunkai, Tyrion and Jorah are with the Second Sons, Victarion’s fleet is landing. The Dragonbinder horn is about to be blown, and lord knows what’s going to happen then. But it won’t be a damn thing like the show.
