To anybody reblogging my post on why response to abuse in ASOIAF is really gross and adding “Daenerys wasn’t abused by Drogo in the books” in the tags, a few things:

  • A 13 year old girl just cannot give consent to having sex with a 30 something warlord when she’s sold into marriage with him by her also abusive older brother
  • Even if their first night was technically consensual, if Dany hadn’t agreed, he would have taken her by force which doesn’t count as consent.
  • After the first night, her chapters include gems like this:
    He always took her from behind, Dothraki fashion, for which Dany was grateful; that way her lord husband could not see the tears that wet her face, and she could use her pillow to muffle her cries of pain. When he was done, he would close his eyes and begin to snore softly and Dany would lie beside him, her body bruised and sore, hurting too much for sleep.”
    THAT IS NOT CONSENSUAL.
  • Dany romanticizes their relationship after his death but she’s a starving teenager trying to provide for her entire Khalasar when she doesn’t even know how and shows signs of severe Stockholm Syndrome. Just because she doesn’t actively think she’s been abused, modern readers really should know better because I don’t know what else you can call it.
  • Marital rape is still rape and this is one of the show’s changes to Dany that I approve of. Their relationship wasn’t romantic or that of equals like Ned and Cat’s.
  • rather than developing a stockholm syndrome for khal drogo, dany was actually so distressed by the authority figures in her life, namely viserys and later khal drogo and the dothraki, that she had to constantly remind herself that she was of the dragon’s blood to comfort her of her fears
  • she made the assumption that the experience of having sex with khal drogo would parallel to her riding her Silver, that she would similarly “[forget] to be afraid.”
  • she was a child, a child blindly trying to hypnotize herself by desperately running into the fire rather than staying wary

Now that I have a watch, I notice other people’s watches. This leads to more conversations about watches and more time spent thinking about watches. This is a slippery slope: You start as an earnest young man who’s trying to keep track of the precious minutes of life and suddenly you’re a potbellied old bore trapped in endless conversations about Panerais, waiting for death.

But why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
