Oh how fragile the Targaryean mind. Jon was lucky.
I suppose Targaryean Madness was the real foe.
All fantasy is derived from reality.
Well, I have doubts that there is a Drowned God. I was talking about the Faith of the Drowned God.
The powers of lords and monarchs can be as fleeting as the seasons. And I have doubts that one person could change Ironborn culture.
Hence why the Ironborn mused be eased into a more peaceful lifestyle.
But how can she keep them from raiding again?
There's another factor as well, easing the Ironborn into a future where the Iron Price is a thing of the past. Ironborn don't let go of old habits easily, especially when changes are reforms are needed.
But even moreso in the Iron Islands.
I'd stay clear of both.
Long live the queen.
Hey, you read what we've said.
It's not just Ironborn culture, it's also the Drowned God, and how sexist the priesthood. And you can tell a lot about a society by analyzing it's faith.
But Yara is now their ruler, and we've all seen how sexist Ironborn culture can be. She needs aid to maintain order.
But unlike the North, Dorne hasn't really suffered under KL.
I didn't think Dany was rushed. I saw it all coming into place for the entire series run. I think the reason most of the Kingdoms didn't delcare independence was because either unlike the North, they had fully adapted to living as vassals, or needed Six Kingdom support in order to keep their rowdy subjects in order. Jaimie was a slave to Cersei's love, because as he said, the things we do for it. The Night King had to be stopped at Winterfell, because no one else had the means to stand against him. And Daenerys became a greater threat than the Night King, so ultimatly he was not her kill, Dany was. Arya however had known and faced death, and now had fully embraced it as an enemy. So her killing the Night King wraps up her arc.
