To those who say Jonerys will never happen in the
books, just a quick reminder Dany has been dreaming of him, even if she has not
seen his face yet…
Lying abed in her narrow bunk, she found herself
wondering how it would be to have a man squeezed in beside her in place of her
handmaid, and the thought was more exciting than it should have been. Sometimes
she would close her eyes and dream of him, but it was never Jorah Mormont she
dreamed of; her lover was always younger and more comely, though
his face remained a shifting shadow.
He was who he was; Jon Snow, bastard and
oathbreaker, motherless, friendless, and damned. For the rest of his life
–however long that might be– he would be condemned to be an outsider, the
silent man standing in the shadows who dares not speak his true name
The flames crackled softly, and in their crackling
she heard the whispered name Jon Snow. His long face floated before
her, limned in tongues of red and orange, appearing and disappearing again, a
shadow half-seen behind a fluttering curtain.
Jon’s face and presence is often referred to as
being in the shadows, he’s always been the outsider, watching the Stark
children play and even if he did play himself sometimes, he tried his best to
avoid irritate Lady Stark, so he kept it to himself, as the bastard he was
pained to be.
Melisandre’s visions of him, from R’hllor himself
is described as Jon’s shadow hidden…It’s not SO subtle how he’s always
referred to be hidden there.
A quick reminded that when he died, she listened to
Ghost’s cries…from across THE NARROW SEA…
“Jon fell to his knees. He found the dagger’s hilt
and wrenched it free. In the cold night air the wound was smoking. “Ghost,”
he whispered. Pain washed over him. Stick them with the pointy end. When the
third dagger took him between the shoulder blades, he gave a grunt and fell face-first
into the snow. He never felt the fourth knife. Only the cold … “
“Off in the distance, a wolf howled. The
sound made her feel sadand lonely, but no less hungry. As the
moon rose above the grasslands, Dany slipped at last into a restless sleep.“
These chapters happen at the same time, how can
Daenerys Targaryen, in Meeren, listen to Jon’s murder at the Wall, North of
Westeros, if not for the bond they have…without ever meeting. Call it
soulmates, fate, whatever you want. Martin does not use words he does not think necessary nor he adds information that the story does not need. If you ever read one his
books, you’ll know he’s sharp and everything means something, even the puzzles and riddles thrown our way. Daenerys heard his soul,
Ghost’s cries (perhaps his own, warg ones), and she felt sad over it, not even
A reminder that when Dany was at the House of the
Undying, she only saw important, relevant things. Not only to herself, but to
the realm: the rape of Westeros, The Red Wedding, the madness of Aerys
Targaryen demanding to burn Kings Landing, Rhaegar and Elia talking of Aegon
and his promised song, the fake dragon (Faegon, am I right?), Hardhome, what
her son’s future would have been like, White Walkers, Rhaegar’s murmuring a woman’s name right before he died (we all assume is Lyanna’s, I guess we’ll find out eventually), and there
are others, but to me it means a lot that one of these visions is:
a blue flower growing from a chink in a wall
of ice, filling the air with sweetness.
Oh, she also sees the red door of the house she
loved and she remembers growing up, and she believed it was in Braavos. She
only had important sights for the realm and herself, yet she sees a blue flower
growing at the wall (if you don’t think this means Jon Snow growing at the Wall,
we can’t be friends and you can’t even read this, bye! JK haha…but come on,
Lyanna is said to have loved winter roses, which are blue…the same ones that
composed the crown Rhaegar Targaryen crowned her with, as The Queen of Love and Beauty at
the Tourney of Harrenhal. Jon lives, works, serves at the Wall, it doesn’t get
any more obvious than this, y’all…only if Martin wrote she saw a ‘hot
northmen with gorgeous hair at Castle Black, really…”).
(whoever did this second gif, thank you so very much, this is beautiful <3)
So not only does this shows how important Jon is to the
realm (remember how her visions are all important, not only to her but also to
Westeros? *inserts my theory of them both being AA* But he’s also important to her, the flower is not just THERE, it
also fills the air with sweetness, it pleases her. Do I need to say
This one is very meaningful if not very telling, to
me. They both feel alone, like something is missing. One can even say “they
feel alone cause they are alone”, but they were not. It almost feels like there
is someone out there, a better match.
Beneath her coverlets she tossed and turned,
dreaming that Hizdahr was kissing her … but his lips were blue and bruised, and
when he thrust himself inside her, his manhood was cold as ice. She sat up with
her hair disheveled and the bedclothes atangle. Her
captain slept beside her, yet she was alone.
Jon wondered where Ghost was now. Had he gone to Castle Black, or was he was running with some wolfpack in the woods? He had no sense of the direwolf, not even in his dreams. It made him feel as if part of himself had been cut off. Even with Ygritte sleeping beside him, he felt alone.
their story is a never ending parallel.
Not to disrespect Ygritte, cause I think she was
necessary to Jon’s growth. She was a great character and I do believe Jon
loved her, at some point. But just like Daenerys, this love was not a choice, it was almost like a survival choice, they made the best out of a bad situation.
He had to be with Ygritte, or Mance would have
killed him, he would not believe Jon had really deserted the Night’s Watch.
Ygritte wasn’t Jon’s act of rebellion, like I once read at a meta, no, she was,
at first, his sacrifice/way to fill his mission. But somewhere along the way,
he fell in love with her, she was strong, funny, and she awoke the sexuality in
him. Again, he had to be with her, to prove himself, but it also wasn’t like he didn’t like it.
Daenerys loved Khal Drogo? Yeah, but it was as
forced as was Jon and Ygritte. One can say it was even worse for she did not go
willing, she was pushed into it, sold like a slave, to get her brother an army (we do
have to thank karma cause his army never came, boo-ya, sucker!). She was given
to a stranger, a savage (comparing to her culture; it’s funny even to see the parallel here, both had to be with people that are considered savages, wildlings where they come from) in return of an army, and she made the best of her situation, she
learnt his language, his manners, bore his child (even if the baby never came
to live), she fell in love with him cause for the first time in a very long
time (or forever?), she was treated with care and love (the way Drogo knew how to love) by the man in her life.
A sweet reminder of how Daenerys thinks of her
family and how she would have married Rhaegar’s son, had he lived. Rhaegar’s
son, who’s Jon’s daddy again?
Plus, we’ve seen on the show that Jon was named
Aegon Targaryen too, we do not know if he will have the same name on the books
but I honestly do not think they would change something so important.
another beautiful “easter egg” to ya:
Five Aegons had ruled the Seven Kingdoms of
There would have been a sixth, but the Usurper’s dogs had murdered her
brother’s son when he was still a babe at the breast. If he
had lived, I might have married him. “
Who says you still won’t, sweetie? Hold on,
Melisandre will bring him back or he was warging Ghost, let’s just wait a bit
Their journey is a never ending parallel, and their path is clearly to each other.
I don’t think the history is called ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ without a cause, Jon may be blood of the dragon, but he’s also a Stark, and Daenerys is a Targaryen through and through…
*the lord of light aka george r.r. martin speaks through melisandre*
I’m back to reading the books and even if I’m still at AGOT, I just felt like making this, had a really bad day and making this made it a little better.
