#THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES WILLING TO EXTEND A HAND TO THE OTHER IN TIMES OF HUMILIATION AND ABUSE AND PAIN #both surrounded by knights and lords and ladies #false honor on all sides #and these two broken people (WITH EVERY REASON TO HATE EACH OTHER) #are the only beacon of decency and kindness #this *is* something of a fairy tale #even if they can’t see it right now
Daenerys’s brother Viserys appeared to have inherited the inclination for madness from his father. Ser Barristan was well aware of this trait and chose to observe Daenerys in the guise of Arstan Whitebeard to make sure she did not display any madness before revealing himself and pledging his sword to her.When he says that he can see no taint in her Dany bristles. Ser Barristan tries to explain diplomatically what he means by saying to Daenerys:
"I am no maester to quote history at you, Your Grace. Swords have been my life, not books. But every child knows that the Targaryens have always danced too close to madness. Your father was not the first. King Jaehaerys once told me that madness and greatness are two sides of the same coin. Every time a new Targaryen is born, he said, the gods toss the coin in the air and the world holds its breath to see how it will land.”
