    “Glib words and charm cannot make up for that.” “A dragon would. The prince insists the egg will hatch. He dreamed it, just as he once dreamed his brother dead. A living dragon will win us all the swords we would want.” (AKOTSK)

    “Now you mock me. A true knight would never mock his king.” The Fiddler sounded hurt. “I hope you will put more faith in what I tell you when you see the dragon hatch.” “A dragon will hatch?” A living dragon? What, here?” “I dreamed it. This pale white castle, you, a dragon bursting from an egg, I dreamed it all, just as I once dreamed of my brothers lying dead. They were twelve and I was only seven, so they laughed at me, and died. I am two-and-twenty now, and I trust my dreams.” (AKOTSK)

    “And who are you to tell the King’s Hand what to do?” Egg did not flinch. “You know who I am, cousin.” “Your squire is insolent, ser,” Lord Rivers said to Dunk. “You ought to beat that out of him.” “I’ve tried, m’lord. He’s a prince, though.” “What he is,” said Bloodraven, “is a dragon. Rise, ser.” Dunk rose. “There have always been Targaryens who dreamed of things to come, since long before the Conquest,” Bloodraven said, “so we should not be surprised if from time to time a Blackfyre displays the gift as well. Daemon dreamed that a dragon would be born at Whitewalls, and it was. The fool just got the color wrong.” (The Mystery Knight)

    “Allow me to give my lord one last piece of counsel, the same counsel that I once gave my brother when we parted for the last time. He was three-and-thirty when the Great Council chose him to mount the Iron Throne. A man grown with sons of his own, yet in some ways still a boy. Egg had an innocence to him, a sweetness we all loved. Kill the boy within you, I told him the day I took ship for the Wall. It takes a man to rule. An Aegon, not an Egg. Kill the boy and let the man be born. You are half the age that Egg was, and your own burden is a crueler one, I fear. You will have little joy of your command, but I think you have the strength in you to do the things that must be done. Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.” (ADWD, Jon II)

    We can dismiss Mushroom's claim in his Testimony that the dragon Vermax left a clutch of eggs somewhere in the depths of Winterfell's crypts, where the waters of the hot springs run close to the walls, while his rider treated with Cregan Stark at the start of the Dance of the Dragons. As Archmaester Gyldayn notes in his fragmentary history, there is no record that Vermax ever laid so much as a single egg, suggesting the dragon was male. The belief that dragons could change sex at need is erroneous, according to Maester Anson’s Truth, rooted in a misunderstanding of the esoteric metaphor that Barth preferred when discussing the higher mysteries. (TWOIAF)

    But we turn to Mushroom to find the tales other chronicles omit, nor does he fail us now. His account introduces a young maiden, or “wolf girl” as he dubs her, with the name of Sara Snow. So smitten was Prince Jacaerys with this creature, a bastard daughter of the late Lord Rickon Stark, that he lay with her of a night. On learning that his guest had claimed the maidenhead of his bastard sister, Lord Cregan became most wroth, and only softened when Sara Snow told him that the prince had taken her for his wife. (FAB)

    “I dreamed of you,” said the prince. “You said that at the inn.” “Did I? Well, it’s so. My dreams are not like yours, Ser Duncan. Mine are true. They frighten me. You frighten me. I dreamed of you and a dead dragon, you see. A great beast, huge, with wings so large they could cover this meadow. It had fallen on top of you, but you were alive and the dragon was dead.” (The Hedge Knight)

    “I dreamed it. This pale white castle, you, a dragon bursting from an egg, I dreamed it all, just as I once dreamed of my brothers lying dead. They were twelve and I was only seven, so they laughed at me, and died. IO am two-and-twenty now, and I trust my dreams.” Dunk was remembering another tourney, remembering how he had walked through the soft spring rains with another princeling. I dreamed of you and a dead dragon, Egg’s brother Dareon said to him. A great beast, huge, with wings so large they could cover this meadow. It had fallen on top of you, but you were alive and the dragon was dead. And so he was, poor Baelor. Dream were a treacherous ground on which to build. (The Mystery Knight)

    So basically instead of “do you wanna come over for coffee” was “do you wanna do some sightseeing in the Crypts?”. Jokes aside, I love the video and your voice.

      OK Ill be coverring those. The Maggie one soon.

      (I've been working on an Arya video that's taking me forever. But that video leads into a video that touches on Maggie the frog)

      I took a break from that yesterday to do the video im releasing Monday about the wall. And as I was about to call it a day, and watch celebrity big brother,I read a comment about something I'd never thought of...

      so I stayed up late last night and turned around a video so fast (releasing it today)

      But now my sleep schedule is messed up. So it's hard to predict my schedule. Oh cap and I'm doing a live chat late at night on the 15th on the "drinks and knows thing" channel :-/

      Either way, I'm guessing that regardless of how long these two arya videos take me, I might not release them until 2 Mondays from now

      Oh actually I forgot. I'm not even going to finish the "lead-in video" first, since it's not technically necessary, and im ancy to share my maggie idea... so I had decided last night that I'm actually working on the Maggie the frog one today and tomorrow.

      you'll see that bit soon. My take is "insane" and I'd be shocked if anyone has ever seen it before

                        Books are so different from tv series, the author took so long to write the later books, the series caught up and had to change the story as it eventually outpaced the books.
                        So the books will probably have more dragons.

                            You probz won't see my comment but there's a comit in the sky when dragons hatch (in the show) so unfortunately there's no more dragons but drogon

                                                    even if it hatches, it would take quite a time before it grows to war-size dragons... and at this time, there's two episodes left before end of GOT...... i Dont think so...

                                                      Varys confirmed he was someone important or of royal blood when he shared with Tyrion abt his parts being used in black magic & he left for dead. I wld love to know Varys true identity . I have pondered if there wld be a twist with him @ the center. Obvi, we know he's willing to betray Dany or kill her in order to place Jon on the throne solely now. I do think that there will be dragon eggs or hatched dragons shown in the very last clip of the finale. This wld be epic.

                                                        Varys maybe a targaryen, think about it shaved head, the wizard cut his stuff off so he could never create a bloodline. Who was his father? Varys may infact be competition to throne. Or have high bloodline, to wed danaerys and more dragons :0

                                                            So. A dragon might grow fast in winter fell if they have volcanic activity.

                                                              its just speculation. but possibly IF wintefell is built above a volcano

                                                              my instinct is that that is the case, but my friend milt (who is a geologist) addressed this in a video back in the day. he believes that the hot water stems from something different than a volcano. caverns or something and gases. i forget the details, but he made a really good argyument that winterfell is not built above a volcano as i would have liked to believe: https://youtu.be/NZIzeb4vAV8

                                                            What if Varys is the dragon born in crypts? He is the only bald character and has made it clear he wants the throne.

                                                              Your theory falls flat by you failing to read the literally following lines. "His rider treated with Cregan Stark...". He implies the actual mythical beast dragon laid eggs, not that his rider had sex with some chick.
