GQA was not only Targaryen, she was a dragonrider. And I have a sneaking suspicion her mount, Silverwing, was a breathtaking sight atop the Wall. Mayhaps it was an albino with red eyes? What's more, is Silverwing may have been the last living dragon prior to Dany's three.
I like the bolded--Queenie wins a victory in hampering the Starks' power BUT living dragons end with hers?
And, with the Targ prophecy of "Promised Prince"--they might actually have thought they were doing the right thing by Westeros. "Saving" the continent from the evil cold. Until the really evil cold comes back.
And the above is one reason I'm not at all sure Bloodraven sent the direwolves. Yes, he may want the power of the Starks for his weirwood adventure. But all of the Starks connected to wolves? Can't see how that helps him.
Yet another reason she may not have understood the implications of what she was doing. Trying to do the right thing. Like Robert coming to get Ned. He didn't understand what it means to draw a Stark out of the North. Yet another reason why I can't see Dany's doing well in Westeros--sounds like her instincts are wrong for the winter wonderland.
To the contrary, I liked it very much.
Careful: I think there's a chance LmL is trying to draw you out :::
