Re: SPOILER *all five books* THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)
Isn't it kind of implied the Targaryen's if not immune are the very least resistant to fire in the presence of dragons? In others words when dragons are alive and near them they can better handle fire than the Targaryen lineage that was alive during the time without dragons.
For example we know Aerion Targaryen died drinking wildfire, and Aegon Targaryen and his Prince Duncan died in fire at Summerhall. So that shows they're not immune to fire by any standards. In these instances there were no dragons.
But in stories past, when dragons roamed the skies in the beginning years of the Targaryen's, I always took it as those individuals were more resistant to the effects of fire.
So, I always took this to mean they are resistant to fire as long as dragons are near.
If that makes any sense what I'm trying to say.
