pre-asoiaf characters ♔ Alysanne Targaryen (unknown)Alysanne Targaryen, known as Good Queen Alysanne, was the daughter of Aenys I and wife of her brother Jaehaerys I the Conciliator. Alysanne was slim of waist and small of breast, with a long neck, a fair complexion and a high forehead. She was tall and straight, unbowed by time. She had clear, blue eyes and high cheekbones. In old age her hair turned white as snow. She wore it in a bun, pulled back and pinned behind her ears. Age left crow’s feet around her eyes and laugh lines about her mouth, but her face never lost its strength. Like her brother-husband she lived a long life. In her youth Alysanne was a fine archer and hunter, and loved to fly atop her dragon, Silverwing, to all the distant parts of the realm. She had great influence over Jaehaerys and convinced him to abolish the lord’s right to the First Night. When the couple visited the North, the queen travelled to the Wall on her dragon Silverwing. Impressed by the bravery of the Night’s Watch, she asked Jaehaerys to double the size of the Watch’s land. The acquired land was called the New Gift. During her visit she stayed in castle Snowgate, which was renamed Queensgate in her honour. She also convinced the Night’s Watch to build a new castle, Deep Lake, as a replacement for the Nightfort.
It simply isn’t an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.

"And thus it was that Arwen first beheld him again after their long parting; and as he came walking towards her under the trees of Caras Galadhon laden with flowers of gold, her choice was made and her doom appointed."
"…I will cleave to you, Dunadan, and turn from the Twilight. Yet there lies the land of my people and the long home of all my kin."

→If you really want to know what Middle-earth is based on, it’s my wonder and delight in the earth as it is, particularly the natural earth.
Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
