Rhaego Targaryen

Well, a little piece of (imagined) fanart. I must admit that I also fall in that Game of Thrones trap.
I was watching Season I while my second child was just few weeks old and, I would say obviously, I felt disturbed by Danaerys miscarriage of her son Rhaego:
“Monstrous. Twisted. I pulled him out myself. He was scaled like a lizard. Blind, with leather wings, like the wings of a bat. When I touched him, his skin fell from his bones. Inside, he was full of graveworms.” - Mirri Maz Dur -

So I decided to change the history and make him newborn, alive and healthy. Just, the scales and the wings aren't really a malformation, but a sign of the dragon blood inherited by his mother. As she saw him in a vision, his skin is bronze like his father's, and his hair are instead of the Valyrian blond type.
However, don't ask me how she could deliver such a scaly child without so much pain. Maybe she just delivered a dragon egg, ahah. It would be easier.

Technically, I experienced some problems with computer screens: with some my pictures are so saturated, then I look in the other one we've at home, and everything is so grey. This pic is no exception.

One day I'll have to watch this darn Game of Thrones since everybody is talking about it.

@Ophmac: as a premise, I didn't read the books.
Then, when I watched the very first episode of GoT first season, I felt very disappointed. It sounded like the worse pot of fantasy and sexists stereotypes I've seen, with weak characters psychology.
My boyfriend went on watching it, and told it was worth, so I gave the series another chance.
Now I must say, I like the series very much. It is a great play of political intrigues, with not too much magic, the play is not always obvious and there are many strong and multi-faceted characters.
This with a fantasy-aesthetic which encounters my taste.
So, I'm waiting for season 3 :)

Well, if you speak to Dulcamara he will instead say that it's very uninteresting because it's a fantasy. So, matter of taste, I suppose :)
