About an AMA Thread with his "Uncle"

... He's wrong. He's got to be.

There's no way that I could do it. Step forward and claim the Iron Throne? I'm a bastard! Bastard's don't win thrones, we get ignored and forgotten about and try to live out a normal life for as long as we can. I can't just... I can't just expect people to fight for me because my blood relates me to a dead King that just grew fat on the Throne, and slept with more women than his own wife.

They've been fightin' too long as it is. Fightin's almost over - they don't need a new round startin' up. The dragon stories are that - stories! An' the Whitewalkers...

How could he ask me to do it? Make a claim for the Throne? I couldn't...

But they've taken over the North now. And the North will fight to win itself back, that's what he meant, right? And then there's some... girl from a family that they fought against because te king was mad and wanted everyone dead but now the girl's coming back and...

Seven hells.

I might... I might have to do this, mun.

How the hells does that even work?

What girl are you referring to?
stonebird: (❅ at recess)

[personal profile] stonebird 2015-08-01 12:26 pm (UTC)(link)
I had heard tales about her. (So it is true.

Great. Like Westeros isn't scary enough.)
So you would pit yourself against her and her dragons?

I think you're very brave. (Or maybe he doesn't know much about King's Landing...?) I feel I should warn you, however. King's Landing isn't filled with people who want to do what is right or just. I'm sure there are some, but -

I haven't seen them sitting on the Iron Throne.
stonebird: (❅ very few)

[personal profile] stonebird 2015-08-01 12:41 pm (UTC)(link)
How? (Her brow creases.) Unless you feel some obligation to -

(Oh. Now the pieces fall into place and she pales.)

You won't only face the Targaryen and her dragons. There are the Lannisters to contend with too.
stonebird: (❅ my mind was going numb)

[personal profile] stonebird 2015-08-01 12:48 pm (UTC)(link)
(She almost smiles.) Families are...complicated. I met King Robert and honor did seem to matter to him.

(When he wasn't drunk and/or ignoring the woes of his court.)
stonebird: (❅ oh fraud that cannot cheat the bee)

[personal profile] stonebird 2015-08-01 12:59 pm (UTC)(link)
... (Quietly looking away now. Is it disrespectful to speak so of the dead?) He did like his drink.

But, from what I understand, he wasn't always like that.
stonebird: (❅ the carriage held but ourselves)

It depends on what you value most. Is your honor of importance to you? Do you care for the seven kingdoms?

What are you talking about? What girl is coming back and what about the Whitewalkers?

[personal profile] waterdancer_ofwinterfell 2015-08-02 05:23 pm (UTC)(link)
The dragon queen? [She actually looked up to Daenarys Targaryen, as she sounded a strong and powerful woman. Something rare in the world of Westeros.]

I would like to see dragons again. As for the Whitewalkers, the men of the Night's Watch will kill them. Jon is brave and will kill them and protect the North.

[personal profile] waterdancer_ofwinterfell 2015-08-11 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
It will be magnificent though, just seeing them flying and being alive again like in the stories. [Yep, she likes the stories Old Nan used to tell them.]

Yes, they do. My brother is out there right now defending the Wall and the North. They can protect us. I know they can.

[personal profile] waterdancer_ofwinterfell 2015-08-13 09:19 am (UTC)(link)
I don't want to be burnt either, yet I still want to see the dragons. [Because she was young and innocent and dragons were awesome.]

The Whitewalkers aren't mentioned much in the stories. There are a few but we're told that they don't exist. They're supposed to have bright blue eyes and walk like the dead.

[personal profile] waterdancer_ofwinterfell 2015-08-15 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, it will be, if they ever get to Westeros from across the sea. [Did dragons fly across seas?]

Of course they could. Dragons fire is really powerful. The Targaryens used it during the war at Harrenhal.

Dragon fire. [She was in awe of that word but also terrified. What if the dragon moved north to attack Winterfell. That would be bad.]

What do you think of the dragons, Gendry?
