I Get Daenerys Targaryen
I feel like I need to say from the outset that I do not watch Game of Thrones beyond watching previews and reading articles about it that I find interesting. I tried to watch it and almost managed to get through the first season, but now my love of it extends only to catch phrases and memes. If I had a nickle for every time I've said "You know nothing Jon Snow," I'd have enough metal to make my own sword throne thingie.
From my outsider's view, I gather that everyone is up in arms because Daenerys Targaryen lost her ish and burned down the pretty city with her dragon. All the fans are like "But she seemed so nice." or "This is so out of character." or "I can't believe she did that, she has such great hair." Maybe that last one is just me. But anyway, everyone has lost their mind because she lost hers for a moment and decided to blow some shit up. Personally, yeah, I get it. Eventually you just get to a point where you want to climb on your dragon and burn the muther to the ground.
So what keeps us in check? For me, I try to think about how my actions would affect other people. Not the proverbial towns people. They probably had it coming. Not the assholes. They definitely had it coming. Nope, I think about the people I care about and how my calling out the dragons would affect them. Because I have dragons, awesome dragons, who love to burn shit up. But no body gets out of a good dragon burning unsigned, the sparks have a tendency to spread out.
So I'll just hang out with my baby dragons and try to keep the flames low. I don't want for people I care about to feel worried or scared that I am going to go all Daenerys for no reason. However, to those who would come after my people, remember that I'm only showing you the little dragon that it's big sister is resting up just out of sight. And while I won't use my dragons offensively, I will rain fire down on those who I feel need defending.
