Wonder years by andrael Wonder years by andrael
“I remember the first time my father took me to court, Robert had to hold my hand. I could not have been older than four, which would have made him five or six. We agreed afterward that the king had been as noble as the dragons were fearsome…. Years later, our father told us that Aerys had cut himself on the throne that morning, so his Hand had taken his place. It was Tywin Lannister who’d so impressed us.”

Quick, kids, what's the moral of the story?
A) Dragons are awesome
B) Tywin Lannister is better than everyone
C) Enjoy childhood while you can, you will never be happy again
D) Hodor

Brushpen practice --> gratuitous fanart. Baby Baratheons and Young Tywin --> Of course I had to draw this scene.

E) Little Stannis and his pinch-able cheeks are adorable :D

I'm not into thick lines as much, but yours always look good. Those dragon skulls are beautiful and very impressive looking and if I were a monarch they'd be just the thing to put around me to intimidate anyone I received.

The King had cut himself on his throne? That just... that's hilarious! XD

Aerys cut himself on the throne so often it was one of the causes of his madness, and was called "King Scab" by everyone.

I remember this scene, it struck me as one of those quotes you couldn't not use if you were writing an essay on the book. I think you have captured it nicely.
