Do you have a personal fanon of Daemon Blackrye I ?
Daemon is a weird character to speculate about because we’re never going to know him, but we kind of already know him?
“If either of you can be said to have a right to the Iron Throne, it must be Lord Stannis.”
shrugged. “Tell me, what right did my brother Robert ever have to the
Iron Throne?…..Robert won the throne with his warhammer.” he swept a
hand across the campfires that burned from horizon to horizon. “Well,
there is my claim, as good as Robert’s ever was.” (ACOK)
… is only a word. When two princes fight for a chair where only one may
sit, great lords and common men alike must choose. And when the

“Are you going to say anything?” You asked with a smirk as you watched a dumbstruck expression twist through his features.
“Seriously?” Barry finally whispered, refusing to tear his eyes away from the video as his counterpart continued singing and dancing across a dark stage. He pointed with one hand before running the other through his hair… You could tell he was embarrassed, what with the way he had turned the most amazing shade of red. “This is the guy who’s repping me on this earth?”
“Yeah, that’s embarrassing…” You nudged him with your elbow. “So, does that mean I win?”
