Daenerys of House Targaryen: Exiled Princess of the Seven Kingdoms
My brother Viserys has begun his journey back to Pentos, leaving Ser Jorah with us to assure that Drogo eventually repays his end of the bargain. We are still on our way to Vaes Dothrak. I should be afraid but those dragon eggs calm me. At night when Drogo has his way with me I look into those eggs and all the pain goes away. I am enthralled by them in many ways. One night I ask my handmaidens if they have ever heard of dragons surviving in the east. They reply no, but.Doreah, a former pleasure-girl from.Lys, tells me an old story about how there used to be two moons in the sky. One wandered too close to the sun and cracked like an egg, spilling out thousands of dragons into the world. My other handmaidens.Irri.and.Jhiqui.dismiss the story, saying that the moon is a goddess, wife to the sun. I donít know who to believe. Doreah instructs me on how to please Drogo in bed but also how to use my skills to gain respect from him. She reminds me "you are no slave" and should not have sex like one. I nervously put these plans into action and Iím surprised to find Drogo responsive, particularly once I starts using my body in combination with the Dothraki language to speak to him.
Eddard I of House Stark; Lord of Winterfell, Lord Paramount of the North & Warden of the North.
Itís the next day and the King & I along with various other members of my household and the royal procession are going hunting. Robert approaches me and thanks me for saying yes to being Hand. As we head out hunting I ask Robert more questions about Jon Arryn. Specifically his wife Lady Lysa Arryn. Robert says that she has gone mad and has fled to the Eyrie with her son Robin. Robert tells me he was hoping to foster Robin with Tywin Lannister. Jon Arryn held important positions like Warden of the East so I tell Robert that the title usually remains with the Head of House Arryn but Robert refuses to give the title to a boy, instead giving it to Jaime Lannister. Based off the letter weíve received from Lysa it wouldnít surprise me if this suggestion to foster Robin with Tywin was Cerseiís doing to take Young Lord Arryn as a hostage and secure his army if needed. This revelation is startling to say the least.
Upon returning from our hunting trip, I learned that my son Brandon has fallen while climbing a tower and is in a coma. I was planning to take Brandon with me when I went south, but Luwin is not sure when Brandon will wake up, or if he will at all. Robb must stay in Winterfell as is custom there must always be a Stark in Winterfell. Sansa is a given to bring, she must be brought to court as she is promised to the Prince, and Arya is too wild to leave in the hands of her mother. I must reign her in, but Jon. Jon is a whole other story. Taking him to court may be far too dangerous, but heíd be much safer by my side then up here with my wife. Catelyn is afraid that Jon would threaten his trueborn sibling's claim to Winterfell. Aegon The Unworthy fathered many bastards and the most notable one Daemon Blackfyre and his sons threaten the Targaryen dynasty for half a century before Barristan Selmy slew Maelys The Monstrous, the last of the Blackfyres, on the Stepstones during the War of the Ninepenny Kings. Jon has also shown no interest in the Nights watch so either I leave him here or take him with me.
Eddard has a decision to make.
A.Take Jon south to Kings Landing.
B.Donít take Jon south.
