ADWD: Ch. 63, Victarion ~~ You would have to be a fool to call Victarion Greyjoy a fool to his face. He lifted the guy up by the throat with his burned hand, strangled him to death, and threw him in the sea. Vic has issues with being made fun of 😬. ~~~ So here’s how I see what’s going on with this chapter. You know how some people become obsessed with celebrities? They imagine what it would be like to be with that person, they fall in love with a person they never met. They even defend that celebrity fiercely. They take to Twitter and fight anyone who talks shit about their love. Victarion is kinda doing that with Daenerys. He kills people who say she is dead. Moqorro mentions that she is his dragon, and he loves that statement. He loves the idea that he will steal her from Euron. He “freed” some slave girls on a ship he raided, and proudly announced that he frees slaves just like the Dragon Queen. It’s honestly kinda scary. Quentyn was shy and inexperienced. He grew up in beautiful Dorne, and lived a pretty sheltered life. Victarion is a beast of a man. Seasoned and hardened. The Iron Islands are rough. ‘Hard places breed hard people’. When Quentyn met Daenerys she was seated on a Throne. If Vic reaches her, she is in a very different situation. It’s just really fun to think about. I create mini fanfics in my mind all the time 😂. ~~~ Tomorrow I’ll come up with something for Dragonbinder, then we will move on to the Ugly Little Girl, Arya Stark 🗡!
