For over the misty mountains cold To dungeons deep and caverns old The pines were roaring on the height The winds were moaning in the night. The fire was red, it flaming spread; The trees like torches blazed with light.
Oh, you poor Jon/Dany shippers. I’ve seen this offered up as a legitimate criticism of this ship and I have no problems with people not liking a ship, but how is this a valid statement? As someone who doesn’t ship this (but doesn’t have anything against this ship), can someone explain it to me?…
This is certainly one of the worst arguments I’ve seen against this ship because since when do fictional characters even have a type? Okay, sure, the author can establish a certain type for his or her characters, but like you said, it’s not like both have had that many lovers anyway. And they are still so very young and inexperienced regarding love that while they seem to have a certain tendency right now, I think that is going to change as they grow older and wiser. In the end it’s up to the author, though, and he’ll decide whether they’ll find each other attractive or not.
However, if I had to take a guess, I think those who make this statement mostly compare Jon to Daario, who are truly nothing alike. At the same time, I doubt Dany is going to look for the next Daario once she has moved on from him.
