Ice dragons and their possible existence in the game of Thrones world. Would it be plausible to link their existence based on the ice spiders? The existence of the ice spiders is still in peril though. So will it be okay to link those behemoths whose existence might end up in fairy tale? Wait, we have more reference on the ice dragons which I am sure you people would like to know.
George R.R. Martin has been thinking about ice dragons for over twenty years. Even before he wrote ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, he wrote a 1980 children’s book aptly named The Ice Dragon. In the story, a little girl bonds with an ice dragon and it subsequently aids her in defeating fire dragons. Hmmm, this fact prove barely anything but we cannot question the mind of a writer. Fictional writer must be crazy to the bone in order to shape their fantasies and darkest fears over their writings.
As Martin describes in The Ice Dragon, they breath ice that’s as deadly as fire. Ice formed when it breathed. Warmth fled. Fires guttered and went out, shriven by the chill. Trees froze through to their slow secret souls, and their limbs turned brittle and cracked from their own weight. Animals turned blue and whimpered and died, their eyes bulging and their skin covered over with frost. The ice dragon breathed death into the world; death and quiet and cold.
If they were to appear on Game of Thrones, they might wreak even more havoc than Dany’s puny dragons which are of a size of a ship by now.
But until the moment it is aired in the show itself. Their mystery will always be a mystery. It’s impossible to say if ice spiders and ice dragons will make their onscreen debut. But if the show does intend to include them, the season’s gearing up for the final act would be the time. If it’s a song of ice and fire, we might as well have dragons breathing both.
