鈥溾楾he Seasons of My Love.鈥 Sweet and sad, if you understand the words. The first girl I ever bedded used to sing it, and I've never been able to put it out of my head.鈥 Tyrion gazed up at the sky.
"To Renly!" she replied, laughing. "May they battle long and hard, and the Others take them both!" Is this the Cersei that Jaime sees? When she smiled, you saw how beautiful she was, truly. I loved a maid as fair as summer, with sunlight in her hair. He almost felt sorry for poisoning her.
Tyrion reclined on an elbow while Sansa sat staring at her hands. She is just as comely as the Tyrell girl. Her hair was a rich autumn auburn, her eyes a deep Tully blue. Grief had given her a haunted, vulnerable look; if anything, it had only made her more beautiful. He wanted to reach her, to break through the armor of her courtesy.
A half-moon silvered the leaves of the fruit trees and shone on the surface of the stone bathing pond. Tyrion seated himself beside the water. Somewhere off to his right a cricket was chirping, a curiously homey sound. It is peaceful here, he thought, but for how long? Shae stood in the door behind him, dressed in the silvery robe he'd given her. I loved a maid as white as winter, with moonglow in her hair.
+ Bonus:
Behind the Black Wall, lords of ancient blood sleep poorly, listening as their kitchen slaves sharpen their long knives. Slaves grow our food, clean our streets, teach our young. They guard our walls, row our galleys, fight our battles. And now when they look east, they see this young queen shining from afar, this breaker of chains. The Old Blood cannot suffer that.

The whole prediction that fAegon is going to win the throne against Cersei, only to face Dany when she arrives in King鈥檚 Landing and things inevitably goes up in flames is deeply annoying to hear. It seems to pop up a lot with male commentators, though I鈥檝e seen some women peddle this too. The problem is that it鈥檚 rather misogynistic and disregards the basics of this story.
fAegon, who just recently changed his battle plans, is suddenly ready to attack King鈥檚 Landing against a ticking time bomb Cersei and wins, then will have the complete, undying loyalty of the masses that Dany will be cast as the mad queen in their eyes.
Couple of things about that.
1. Even with a large army, success is never a guarantee. Stannis had a larger number of forces than the Lannisters did. He had ships and forces that highly stacked the deck in his favor. Throughout ACOK, it was assumed that he was going to seize the city. What happened though? At the last minute, between the wildfire and the sudden alliance between the Lannisters and the Reach ended with Stannis鈥檚 defeat.
It only takes one change in plans, one turn of luck for things to go south.
The Freefolk had an overwhelming number of armies, but they could not take the wall. Size, numbers, they don鈥檛 always guarantee victory. It also depends on the commanders, the generals, and just the luck that develops through the course of the battle.
2. King鈥檚 Landing is incredibly difficult to take without dragons. The only reason Robert鈥檚 forces overtook King鈥檚 Landing is because they were let in. Stannis, as mentioned above, struggled to even get inside the city. This city is meant to withstand sieges, and as they currently have food, they can repel forces for awhile.
3. The people loving fAegon and choosing him over the Lannisters is also a bit erroneous to assume right off the bat. Stannis was invading post riots and after Tyrion had burned a bit of Flea Bottom to create defenses. This was right at the time where the smallfolk were literally tearing men apart for meat. Still, when Stannis attacked, they didn鈥檛 wildly embrace him.
We鈥檝e seen from Arya鈥檚 POV chapters that the smallfolk don鈥檛 care about the fight for the throne. They don鈥檛 care about the matters involving the high lords, they only care that they are starving and the war ravages the land, ultimately effecting them. For them to turn around and embrace this boy claiming to be Aegon Targaryen seems unlikely.
The show might have been that superficial, but we鈥檝e never seen the people show much interest in the squabble for titles or power. They want food, stability and not to be raided and/or killed.
4. fAegon even winning is not a foregone conclusion. Aside from the tricky odds, you have two characters that have already established they are willing to burn the world down rather than let the other side win. Cersei is compared often to the Mad King and Jon Con鈥檚 greatest regret is not burning the city that Robert was supposedly hiding in. If the battle shifts one way or another, between these two, they鈥檙e going to light a match. You don鈥檛 need dragons for King鈥檚 Landing to go up, we鈥檝e got two candidates you are extremely ready to burn it down.
5. Dany has a *ton* to do before even getting to Westeros. There鈥檚 the Meereen storyline to wrap up, everything with the Dothraki, the rest of Slaver鈥檚 Bay/Pentos/Lys/Etc. She鈥檚 also got the Ironborn to deal with and a maester coming to her to warn her about the Others. Somewhere in all of this, she鈥檚 going to set this stuff aside and head straight to King鈥檚 Landing because fAegon might get the throne? It鈥檚 not feasible for two books. It鈥檚 not as if GRRM is doing crazy time jumps. He鈥檚 already scrapped that idea. Whether for good or bad, things are playing out without any fast forwarding. In two books, one of them being the large scale battle against the others and the resolution, Dany doesn鈥檛 have time to go to King鈥檚 Landing and get involved in yet another battle.
6. The whole idea that Dany will respond with jealousy that fAegon is loved by the people of King鈥檚 Landing discounts a lot of Dany鈥檚 character. She鈥檚 never done things to be loved or adored by the masses, she鈥檚 done it because she wants to do what鈥檚 right and to protect others. She鈥檚 talked about wanting to see her people smile and to keep them safe and happy. Suddenly not being the biggest favorite all around goes against what鈥檚 been established for her. It鈥檚 also really sexist. A woman not automatically getting the love a man is getting so she goes berserk or too ruthless?聽
Just the more I hear about this theory, the more it doesn鈥檛 fit to me. I deeply wish it would die.

My tribute to The Dead Ladies Club. I have thought about this post a lot because of how many dead mothers there are in the story and as someone who knows the pain of losing their mother, it鈥檚 tragic how many of these women are treated as footnotes in history. I really loved making this, and I鈥檓 definitely聽planning on more edits like this in the future.

CANON DAENERYS CHALLENGE || Why Dany left a positive impression on QUENTYN MARTELL
Daenerys never laughed. The rest of Meereen might see him as an amusing curiosity, like the exiled Summer Islander King Robert used to keep at King's Landing, but the queen had always spoken to him gently. (ADWD The Spurned Suitor)
It鈥檚 not hard to see why Quentyn Martell thought that Dany was the only person in Meereen who didn鈥檛 make him feel like an outsider. She defends him from insults in open court, gives him and his friends a room suitable to their high birth in the Great Pyramid, makes it clear that she refused Quentyn's marriage alliance because of her concern for her city (and not because of his shortcomings), reassures him when he鈥檚 scared of her dragons in the pit, offers him sound advice by laying out the reasons why he should leave Meereen and starts a conversation by showing interest in Dornish history. It鈥檚 made clear time and again that Dany treated Quentyn with dignity (and ordered everyone to do the same), respected his feelings and decisions and cared for his well-being even when she didn鈥檛 have to, which is why Quentyn is shown to be overwhelmed by her kindness.
