cynicalclassicist  asked:

Do you think Domeric being fostered at Redfort was part of continued attempts to keep up good relations between the Southron ambitions bloc? Might it have been as Ned didn't trust Roose (hinted at by Jon) and wanted their heir in the south in case the Dreadfort took interest in a Targ restoration?

I don’t think the Dreadfort would be interested in a Targaryen restoration. For one, they were part of the side that helped oust them in the first place. For two, there’s no appealing claimant since Viserys the Beggar King has no support as far as the Boltons are aware. For three, openly installing a king is not Roose’s style.

Thanks for the question, Classicist.

The wig room is incredible. Every character has a wig almost, because we’ve all got bonkers hair. I have named mine. Seasons 1 and 2, she was just Dany. And then Diva came along [following Daenerys’s Mother of Dragons moment], she’s completely huge. She didn’t behave herself. – EMILIA CLARKE for Harper’s Bazaar (June/July 2015) x
