Reviews for The Dragon of Duskendale
IbnAurum chapter 26 . 10/30/2022
While I highly applaud the ongoings of the story and the characterization here, I find it hard to believe that Barristan who did nothing as Aerys committed great evils would rush to save Kevan out of his own volition. It's not that he wouldn't, it's just that the very same honor that prevented him from stopping Aerys should've been the same here.
Or was it because he didn't want to see Aelor going down the same route? He could've chosen any time after the Defiance to stop being a hypocrite, yet only now does he act, for his token son? To be fair, he could've been overwhelmed by all this, and finally had a change of heart, but it wasn't clearly depicted in my opinion. He just suddenly manned up as the plot requires. A little bit more insight into how Barristan processed Aerys and Aelor's moments of madness would've been wonderful.

Absolutely fantastic read.

You know it’s good when it holds up as excellent even after a second time of reading …

This story is long finished and my review doesn’t mean much of anything; I suppose I just want to share my thoughts. I think the concession should’ve been a bit more complex. While, yes the Aelors points stand; the war was started as a rebellion against the Targs for Lyanna. The deaths of the two starks were the ignition, but the main point is that a Prince took a daughter of one of the major houses unlawfully. He was married, and she had a betrothed, and there was no attempt to remedy the situation by the sitting king. The rebels first priority when surrendering, would be the return of Lyanna Stark. I don’t think there would be any peace without the firm acknowledgment that a member of the royal family cannot just take a member of a prominent house with no consequences. Of course, Rhaegar is dead, but Lyanna - at this stage - is still hidden, with no knowledge of her condition. The rebels have a just cause for rebellion, and without a remedy for that cause - the realm could still have cause for future rebellion. If Rhaegar could take Lyanna and the following war be surrendered just by the deaths of the main participants and not the return of the (assumed) kidnapped party, what stops a future Targaryen from doing the same? Lyanna could also be seen as basically a hostage, and this implies that the royal family can take hostages at any time, for any reason, and that attempting to retrieve them is treason.

Anyway, I’m enjoying the story, but I feel like that the resolution to the war was a bit too simple.

Wow. Absolute masterpiece. I think you portrayed Aelor, a man burdened by duty and changed by war who tried his best for his family, incredibly. I didn't expect this when I started this. I'm still sitting here in shock after that, since I read this all in one go. From the highs to the lows, even when I hated you for a character's actions, this was amazing. Kudos, its been a while, but I don't think authors who write masterpieces like this get enough love.

one of the worst fanfic ever, mc is not aiming to be king, is not a legendary warrior, does not have a cool personality, all he does is hate and rage around, a sentimental bitch he is, does not have good romance, all the ocs have no good point to them, this is one pile of shit put together, but... people do drugs to the point they die for it so... be carefull if you one of the shit novel/fanfic eaters... shit rain alarm!
LoL chapter 36 . 9/18/2022
ch 36 of course instant plot armor for the lannisters i guess even if every lanister do the worst any human ever can in public they plot armor still win in the end
all lannister should die not for a holy war against sin but because it's the nessecary thing to do not to cure them of their sin LoL, but, anyone who though a Lame ass author writing fanfic would kill cercei before she kills half the world is crazy, or Tyron before he piss on the legacy of 8000 years of built up of sacrifice he would never make himself haha not a fat chance, i hope this author lose as much as his character Aelor for this stupid move LoL it would be poetic hahaha

Plus I always despised the valyrians in general they think they're all that, the dornish made right with killing rhaenys and meraxes is shows they ain't invisible and they can be killed. I think the valyrians doomed themselves with the doom and now house targaryen is doing the same
CharlieBug1945 chapter 21 . 7/28/2022
And the targaryen family are low compared to the other valyrian families what gave them the advantage of holding westeros was there dragons, but ever since the dance they butchered and stained themselves.
