anonymous asked:

if Dany's not on the throne, who?

I don’t think anyone will be on the throne. The wildfire that Aerys had placed under King’s Landing isn’t there for nothing, after all. I’ll have to direct you to @poorquentyn​, who’s a lot better at describing the theory than I would be.

But really, having the Iron Throne survive the series just wouldn’t feel right. The game of thrones isn’t the bigger picture, the song of ice and fire is. It’s not about the political web of betrayal and intrigue; that’s only a distraction. There is a war worth fighting, but it’s against the Others, not for the throne.

Not only will the Iron Throne not exist, I don’t think Daenerys would even want it. She’s spent most of her time convincing herself that she needs to be a queen, and (before she inadvertently blows up King’s Landing) she’ll spend a good amount of time convincing herself she needs to be a conqueror.

But she’s neither of those things. Tyrion, someone who hasn’t even met Dany yet, said it best.

“(…) This Mother of Dragons, this Breaker of Chains, is above all a rescuer.” (Tyrion VI, ADWD)

There’s a pattern with the way our three heads of the dragon approach ruling. Jon thinks “it shouldn’t be me”, Dany thinks “it has to be me”, and Tyrion thinks “of fucking course it’s me” (though whether he thinks it confidently or sarcastically sort of depends). And, ultimately, it’s because they don’t want to rule people; they want to save them.

And I know the fandom thinks that being a king or queen by the end of the series would be a huge success for a character, but honestly …

“Gods be good, why would any man ever want to be king?” - Robb Stark. You know, before they murdered him. (Catelyn III, ASOS)

Daenerys doesn’t need a throne or a crown, and by the end of the series, I highly doubt she’ll want any of that. If she doesn’t die in the Battle for the Dawn (which she very well might), I imagine she’ll head north and leave the kingdoms to rule themselves.

It was an odd sort of thing to have captured Joffrey’s adoration. You weren’t sure if it was love but you were grateful for it, to be an idolized possession that the cruel boy wanted dearly. It was this that kept you from the brunt of his anger, saw you treated like you were the finest lady in all the lands and that you were protected in the same manner.

 

“She is beautiful, is she not?” Joffrey asked Tyrion as they walked through the palace gardens.

 

“I dare say there is not a woman in Kings Landing that could rival (Y/N)’s beauty.” Tyrion agreed.

Part 2 of As You Wish written by guest writer @makemeamilkshake!

Previously:

Five years later, she received news that Klaus’ ship had been attacked by pirates. Not just by any pirates, but pirates commanded by the legendary Dread Pirate Roberts.

The most fearsome pirate of the seas.

Understandably, most of the villagers presumed him dead.After that day, Caroline refused to eat or speak. She remained that way for weeks, with a broken heart and lost in her own despair.


The monarch of the land, King Giuseppe, had two sons. Prince Stefan, the younger and kinder of the two, was happily wed to a peasant girl he had fallen in love with and married in secret. The elder brother, Prince Damon, was mean spirited, selfish, and reckless, and despite his father’s demands, he had not yet married.

So, King Giuseppe made a decree that all the families in the land should be prepared to offer their eldest daughters for Damon could choose a wife from among them.

As fate would have it, Damon’s eyes landed on Caroline the day of the choosing. As their only daughter, her parents were eager to accept the Prince’s offer of betrothal. They were considerably poor, farm owners and desperately needed the income. They also wanted the best for their daughter and believed there could be no better life for her than marrying a Prince and becoming a Princess.  

Caroline protested at first and considered running away, but then considered how miserable her life had become and conceded that it couldn’t possibly get any worse. Reluctantly, she accepted the Prince’s offer.

On the day of the wedding, the castle was seized by a gang of bandits in black masks, demanding gold and jewels. Caroline was confined to her room with the door barred, and ordered to open it for no one.

Despite the efforts of the guards to thwart them, the bandits prevailed.

They didn’t escape with any diamonds or expensive clothes or spices to sell.

Only the Prince’s betrothed.

A late entry for the Game of Thrones prompt on sketch_dailies. 

I really hate doing likenesses and much prefer to come up with my own designs for literary characters; but this prompt was to coincide with the season four finale so I thought it best to try my hand at drawing the visages of the ever-lovely Natalie Dormer and Sophie Turner. 

Here are Margaery and Sansa hawking, a scene from the books that did not make it to the show.
