I wonder how long it takes Jon to connect the dots and realise he's banging his Aunt  ;)

I've thought a lot about this and is this even something that would bother him? I mean culturally in this universe siblings fucking only seems to be mildly taboo. And the Targaryens are incredibly incestuous anyway.

The Targaryens are...but the Starks aren't. And Jon was raised as a Stark in the tradition bound North.

Yeah but an aunt is a long way from a sibling in a quasi-medieval world.

I don't think you need spoiler tags in this thread. If you haven't watched the most recent episode you probably shouldn't be opening it.

NOT PUTTING ANY SPOILER TAGS:
Is that flight physically possible? You'd probably fall right the fuck off, right? It would take the dragon responding to your motion to prevent you from falling I feel like unless you had a harness of some sort.

In all fairness, I don't think a creature that size/weight could fly at all, so I'm willing to let it go.


In Dragonlance novels there was a whole harness/rig system in place for most riders.

I wonder...could there be bladder-like organs in the dragons filled with a methane or methane-like substance? Could this not only be the fuel for their fire, but provide buoyance allowing for flight (along with perhaps hollow bones ala birds)?

Yeah, yeah, I know. The real answer is "magic" but it's fun to speculate how it could "really" work.
