[a tribute to iron queens; dragons, mothers, broken, and beautiful]
When Shaera was six, her mother braided raven feathers into her pale hair and called her a Blackwood. When she was eleven, her mother handed her a gilded rose and told her to start wearing green gowns for her future husband. When she was fourteen, she ran away with her brother.
When she hadn’t yet seen three decades, Shaera died.
Before that, she lived.
Rhaella was born tired.
Her mother laughed when she said it, but she also worried for her daughter: Rhaella was so delicate, always shivering from the cold or flushed with fever. When her father declared that she must marry Aerys, her mother raged louder than a storm. Rhaella wept and wept, but her father was determined.
She never quite forgave him for it.

Of course Jon turns out to be more like his father than anyone would ever expect.
